There was a lot of talk about how much the Bears pressured Tom Brady, but Foles was under duress more often than the future Hall of Famer. Foles was pressured on 40 percent of his dropbacks last week, so when you combine that with his lack of mobility, there's a real problem. The Panthers will not be causing that issue, as they've generated less pressure than any other defense in the NFL. Their sack-rate backs that up, too, as they've sacked the opposing quarterback on just 2.67 percent of their dropbacks, which is a league-low. Still, their defense has been so much better than expected. They've allowed a sturdy 68.7 percent completion-rate, which sounds great, but when you see those completions go for an average of just 9.16 yards, you wonder what's going on. The 6.29 yards per attempt they allow to quarterbacks ranks as the third-lowest mark in the league. They're allowing offenses dink-and-dunk their way down the field but limiting the big plays. Foles and Mitch Trubisky have combined for one of the higher average depth of targets in the NFL, so this offense hasn't been the dink-and-dunk type. The best performance against the Panthers this season was Kyler Murray's 133-yard, three-touchdown performance in Week 4 where he rushed for 78 yards. Knowing he was the only one to finish better than the QB20 on the week against the Panthers, it's fair to say this is not a matchup to target with streamers.

Nick Foles scores twice in Week 6 victory

Nick Foles completed 23 of 39 attempts for 198 yards, one TD and an INT in the Bears’ 23-16 win over the Panthers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

He added five carries for four yards and an additional touchdown. Foles didn’t have to do much in this one, as Chicago’s defense held Carolina in check for most of the afternoon. Foles has a tall order for Week 7, when the Bears travel to LA to face a stout Rams defense.
