|Poor showing not a deal-breaker for Nick Foles |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(9/28/14) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles wasn't at his best Week 4 at San Francisco. That much is certain. But on a day when the Eagles couldn't muster any sort of running game against one of the league's best run defenses, he's not entirely to blame.
Now, LeSean McCoy averaging less than 2 yards per carry -- that's a concern and one that could impact Foles if it continues. But for now, you shouldn't give much thought to sitting the third-year quarterback for Week 5 against St. Louis.
Had he thrown for 300 yards (instead of 195) for a fourth straight game to open the season, he would have joined Peyton Manning, Steve Young, Kurt Warner and Drew Brees as the only quarterbacks to do so, so he's still off to a great start.

(9/28/14) After three straight 300-yard passing games, Eagles quarterback Nick Foles struggled mightily in the Week 4 loss at San Francisco. He completed 21 of 43 throws for 195 yards and no touchdowns with two interceptions.
Foles absorbed several big hits, and they affected his play. Late in the third quarter, Foles got leveled by defensive tackle Justin Smith and his severely underthrown pass was easily intercepted. His second pick came on a desperation 4th-and-24 heave in the final minute.
Foles got no help from the running game or from wideout Riley Cooper, who dropped a perfect throw in the end zone with about three minutes left. Foles will try to bounce back against the Rams in Week 5.

(9/21/14) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles put together another strong stat line Sunday, in a 37-34 win over Washington in Week 3.
Foles topped the 300-yard mark for the third straight game to open the season, as he racked up 325 yards. He completed 27 of 41 passes in the game, his highest completion percentage of the season, while tossing three touchdowns without an interception.
Foles took a beating in this game, and appeared to play through a couple of injuries. He should be healthy for Week 4 against the 49ers, and he carries a 60.9 completion percentage and 978 passing yards into next Sunday's game.
|Nick Foles headed for best game of year |
|by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(9/18/14) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles is set up for a good game in Week 3 against the Redskins.
Foles started one game against the Redskins in Week 11 last year, and it was the last time he failed to throw a touchdown. He still managed 21 Fantasy points with 298 passing yards, 47 rushing yards and a touchdown.
Foles has yet to hit the 20-point mark this year, but he does have at least 18 Fantasy points in consecutive weeks. While the Redskins have been stout against the pass through two games, they've done it against Ryan Fitzpatrick and Chad Henne.
Foles and the Eagles are a tougher test, especially with Philadelphia maximizing Darren Sproles, who is a nice sleeper this week. We expect Foles to crack 20 Fantasy points for the first time this week.

|Nick Foles throws for 331 yards in comeback win |
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
(9/15/14) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles made big throws down the stretch in leading his team to a 30-27 comeback win in Indianapolis. After passing for 322 yards in the opener, Foles completed 21 of 37 throws for 331 yards with one touchdown and one interception. He also ran four times for 22 yards.
Foles ranks second in the league with 653 passing yards, trailing only Matt Ryan. While he missed some throws in the first half against the Colts, Foles also was victimized by his receivers. Riley Cooper dropped a 20-yard touchdown in the first quarter, and tight end Brent Celek later dropped a short scoring toss.
Foles finally threw a touchdown with 3:25 left when he threaded a 6-yard strike to Jeremy Maclin. On the winning field goal drive, Foles lofted a 24-yarder to tight end Zach Ertz. Foles did his best work with Darren Sproles, finding the scatback on short throws that yielded 57- and 51-yard gains.
Foles plays Washington in Week 3.

Gore powers 49ers past Eagles to avoid 3-game skid
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) An off-balance Colin Kaepernick improvised, threw across his body and across the field, finding Frank Gore open near the opposite sideline more than 20 yards away.
|Nick Foles was one of the best surprises in 2013 when he took over for Michael Vick and became a standout Fantasy quarterback. Foles finished the season with 2,891 yards, 27 touchdowns and two interceptions and 56 carries for 225 yards and three touchdowns in just 13 appearances and 10 starts. He finished as the No. 11 quarterback in standard leagues, but if you project his stats over 16 games he would have been No. 3 behind only Peyton Manning and Drew Brees. Foles is capable of great things, but the Eagles took away his best receiver when they released DeSean Jackson. He does get Jeremy Maclin back after he was out with a torn ACL, Riley Cooper was re-signed and the Eagles traded for Darren Sproles. They also drafted Jordan Matthews and Josh Huff, which will help Foles as well. But we're concerned about Foles without Jackson, which is why he's just a low-end starter coming into the year. Chip Kelly's offense should allow Foles to still play at a high level, but the loss of Jackson plus the natural regression with his interception total will hurt. We would only draft Foles with a mid- to late-round pick, and he's outside the Top 10 of starting Fantasy quarterbacks coming into the season.
