Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
Foles and the Chicago offense have looked awful as of late, but the matchup against New Orleans is at least a favorable one. Foles has some deep-league streaming appeal, but his outlook would take a further tumble if Allen Robinson (concussion) is ruled out. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
This offense is horrendous in Chicago. Hopefully the Bears can get things figured out, but Foles is completely off the redraft radar until that happens. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
What you saw on Monday night was a glimpse of what it's looked like with Foles over the last few weeks. This is nothing new. Outside of his game against the Falcons (potentially the league's worst defense), Foles has averaged just 5.83 yards per attempt and has thrown three touchdowns to five interceptions. The Saints have faced just 61.3 plays per game on defense, which has allowed them to rank 10th in terms of overall fantasy points per game allowed to opposing teams, but from an efficiency standpoint, they've allowed the third-most fantasy points per offensive play. It doesn't help that they've allowed a touchdown pass on 8.54 percent of pass attempts. How bad is that? Patrick Mahomes' career touchdown rate is 6.86 percent. All in all, the Saints have allowed 0.634 fantasy points per actual pass attempt, which is the highest mark in the league (Falcons are closest at 0.609). Considering Foles doesn't have any mobility, that's important. The Bears also pass the ball 65.1 percent of the time, which is the second-highest rate in the NFL. Seeing that every quarterback that's played the Saints has scored at least 19.16 fantasy points makes you feel like Foles could be a streamer, but I wouldn't trust him with the way he's playing right now.
