Nick Foles will sign 4-year deal with Jaguars

According to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport, the Jacksonville Jaguars are signing free agent quarterback Nick Foles to a four-year deal worth $88 million.

Fantasy Impact

This was to be expected after the Jaguars cleared out tons of cap space by releasing multiple players last week. Foles walks into a tough spot, as the Jaguars offensive line isn't nearly as talented as the Eagles' was and they don't currently have a 50/50 receiver on the roster. Foles has been known to throw the ball up and let his receiver win a one-on-one battle, but Dede Westbrook and D.J. Chark aren't receivers you want to do that with very often. Expect the Jaguars to address a big wide receiver or tight end in the draft to give Foles a weapon in the red zone. You should not be drafting Foles outside of 2QB leagues.

Nick Foles reportedly expected to sign with Jaguars

Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports the Jaguars are expected to sign Nick Foles in free agency.

Fantasy Impact

Foles and the Jaguars have been a popular match all off-season, and it appears his market hasn’t taken off in the way he thought it might. His arrival in Jacksonville would be a big upgrade over Blake Bortles. All Jaguars skill position players would benefit from the signing.

Nick Foles: Jaguars favorite to land QB

While he notes that a lot can change between now and the start of free agency, Adam Schefter is reporting that the Jaguars are the favorites to sign free agent Nick Foles.

Fantasy Impact

Foles will not receive the franchise tag from the Eagles, as he's set to enter free agency in the coming weeks. There are likely several teams that will express interest in Foles, but the QB-needy Jaguars appear to be the early favorites. Given the Jaguars' success with Blake Bortles under center in 2017, Foles could be enough to put them back in contention in the AFC South in 2019.

Nick Foles to enter free agency 'free'

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the Philadelphia Eagles will not place the franchise tag on QB Nick Foles.

Fantasy Impact

Since Eagles GM Howie Roseman announced that the team would not place the franchise tag on Foles, the Super Bowl LII MVP will enter the 2019 free agency signing period truly "free." With a handful of quarterback-needy teams out there that include the Dolphins, Jaguars and Redskins, Foles' services will be in high demand. Foles has already been linked to the Jaguars, who recently hired John DeFilippo as their offensive coordinator. DeFilippo was Foles' QB coach in Philadelphia during the Eagles' 2017 Super Bowl run.

Nick Foles and the Jaguars have "mutual interest"

Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports Nick Foles and the Jaguars have mutual interest.

Fantasy Impact

Foles' market has shrunk with Denvers' recent trade for Joe Flacco. The Jaguars are an obvious fit and right now have to be viewed as the front runner for the former Super Bowl MVP. NJ.com has also reported Foles is keeping tabs on the Giants' quarterback situation in case they move on from Eli Manning.
