Nick Foles shows toughness with another 300-yard game


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6:02 pm ET) 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
(9/18/2014) 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. 

For a complete list of Week 3 options, read my latest Start 'Em and Sit 'Em.


Nick Foles throws for 331 yards in comeback win


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/15/2014) 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.


Tale of two halves for Nick Foles


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/7/2014) Nick Foles started his Week 1 game against the Jaguars with three turnovers and no touchdowns in the first half, completing 12 of 24 passes for 139 yards. His second half was much better as he hit Zach Ertz and Jeremy Maclin for touchdowns and finished with 322 yards on 27 of 45 passing (15 of 21 in the second half). The Eagles won 34-17.

Foles should be able to put together a game without as many turnovers in Week 2 at Indianapolis. 


Nick Foles a fine Fantasy choice for season opener


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2014) The Nick Foles bandwagon is standing room only after a brilliant 2013 season in which the Eagles surprising quarterback threw for 27 touchdowns and just two interceptions in 10 games.

And while one must be wary of him as a premier Fantasy option with such a limited resume, he is an automatic start in Week 1 at home against a Jacksonville pass defense that allowed opposing quarterbacks to compile a 96.5 rating a year ago and did little to bolster it.

Foles boasts no scintillating receiving weapons to work with, but wideouts Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper and tight ends Brent Celek and emerging Zach Ertz provide reliability and depth. And the mere presence of stud featured back LeSean McCoy will keep the defensive focus on the ground game.

CBSSports.com senior Fantasy writers Dave Richard ranks Foles eighth among all quarterback options on Sunday. Go with that thought and stick him in your lineups unless you have a clearly superior option. There aren't many.


Nick Foles, Mark Sanchez to sit preseason finale; Matt Barkley gets starting nod


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Eagles coach Chip Kelly confirmed that Nick Foles and backup Mark Sanchez will sit out the preseason finale, Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia reports. Matt Barkley will get the nod Thursday against the Jets.

Nick Foles not at his best in preseason tuneup


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/22/2014) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles didn't look impressive Thursday night against the Steelers in exhibition play.

Foles threw a short pass to LeSean McCoy, who turned it into a 22-yard touchdown. He was picked off by Troy Polamalu in the second quarter. He played the first half and compiled 179 yards through the air while completing 19 of 29 passes. He added a touchdown and an interception, registering a 79.5 passer rating.

Foles has passed for 304 pass yards through three preseason games. His next game will likely be the regular season opener against the Jaguars on Sept. 7.

Nick Foles gets in the end zone vs. New England


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/15/2014) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles bounced back from a slow start and found the end zone in the second quarter of Friday's preseason game against New England.

Foles hooked up with Zach Ertz for a 6-yard touchdown strike. He worked four series with the first-team offense and completed 8 of 10 pass attempts for 81 yards, with one touchdown and no interceptions. Through two games, Foles has passed for 125 yards.

Coach breaks down Nick Foles' interceptions


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/12/2014) Eagles offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur didn't sound overly concerned about Nick Foles' performance against the Bears in the preseason opener. Foles hit 6 of 9 passes for 44 yards and no touchdowns with two interceptions.

"Certainly the first [interception] was on a third-and-long and he tried to force it in there and make a play, which typically he won't do," Shurmur said. "So he's just trying to see what he can get away with, and then the keeper on the second down, as we were getting into the red area, that's just the throw. They did a good job of covering it. He's done it in the past. He's just got to pull it down and get what he can with it and then we play third down. That had nothing to do with what he's been working on.

"Nick's training well. Nick's doing some good things. Fortunately, if you make some mistakes in the preseason, it doesn't hurt you, and he certainly learns from every rep he gets."


Nick Foles picked off twice in preseason opener


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2014) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles showed some struggles in his first preseason game as the unquestioned starter Friday night against the Bears.

His first drive included a pass that was almost an interception before an interception by Ryan Mundy. Foles worked three series with the first-team offense and was picked off by Sherrick McManis on his final drive of the night. He completed 6 of 9 pass attempts for 44 yards, with no touchdowns and a pair of interceptions. He will look to work out the kinks on Friday at New England.

Eagles starters to play 10-15 snaps Friday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2014) Eagles starters, including quarterback Nick Foles, running back LeSean McCoy and receiver Jeremy Maclin, will play 10 to 15 snaps Friday against the Bears, coach Chip Kelly told the Delaware News Journal. Wideout Riley Cooper won't play as he continues to nurse a foot injury.

Report: Despite 'good' camp, Foles will have 'strong' season


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/1/2014) The Philadelphia Inquirer has noticed that Eagles quarterback Nick Foles has had a good but not great camp thus far. For example, he's thrown an interception in each of his last two days of practice and even mis-threw a ball during a 7 on 7 drill. But the paper went on to say "Foles is going to have another strong season, barring injury." 

Over 13 games and 317 pass attempts, Foles completed 64.0 pct. of them for 2,891 yards (9.12 yards per attempt) with 27 touchdowns and only two interceptions. He added three rushing touchdowns and 221 rush yards. 


Eagles address WR need with Jordan Matthews


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/9/2014) The Eagles needed a receiver with DeSean Jackson gone, and they addressed the position by drafting Vanderbilt's Jordan Matthews in the second round.

Matthews will likely be No. 3 on the depth chart behind Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper, and he will have minimal Fantasy value in 2014. He should, however, help Nick Foles and the Eagles offense.

Matthews is a good receiver, but he's not a burner, which the Eagles will miss with Jackson gone. Still, this receiving corps is starting to look solid with Maclin, Cooper, Matthews, Zach Ertz, LeSean McCoy and Darren Sproles.

It should only help Folk, who depended heavily on Jackson last year. He's still a low-end No. 1 Fantasy quarterback, but he's a great one to wait for with a late-round pick.

As for Matthews, he's only worth a late-round flier in standard leagues, and he's a solid second-round pick in rookie-only formats.


Eagles will be OK even without DeSean Jackson


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/6/2014) The Eagles lost DeSean Jackson this offseason, and Fantasy owners are concerned their offense could struggle without a deep threat down the field. It's possible, but there's still plenty of talent for Fantasy owners to tap into even though Jackson is gone.

For an in-depth look at some of the top Eagles players -- Nick Foles, LeSean McCoy, Darren Sproles, Jeremy Maclin, Riley Cooper and Zach Ertz -- check out this blog I wrote in looking at their preseason outlooks. A lot can change between now and the start of the season, but here is one view on the Eagles heading into this year.

If you disagree, feel free to discuss any differences with me on Twitter @jameyeisenberg


Nick Foles confident in DeSean-less receiving corps


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/1/2014) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles knows that losing DeSean Jackson is big for an offense that relies on speedy gamebreakers. But he expressed confidence in the remaining receivers, including Jeremy Maclin -- whom he referred to as a "top tier" receiver -- and Arrelious Benn, who missed last season with a torn ACL. 

"The Philadelphia Eagles were built on a team atmosphere," he told the Philadelphia Inquirer. "We're built as a team, we had success as a team. We have a great core group of guys, and we have good additions."

Foles didn't sweat questions about his contract status -- he's due to make just over $600,000 this season, low for a Pro Bowl quarterback. He also told reporters he wasn't changing just because he was entering training camp as the starter. 


Kelly: Nick Foles has chance to improve in Year 2


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/1/2014) Eagles coach Chip Kelly said at the NFL owners meeting that quarterback Nick Foles has the chance to improve in 2014.

Foles started 10 games for the Eagles in 2013 and completed 64 percent of his passes for 2,891 yards, 27 touchdowns and two interceptions and ran for 225 yards and three touchdowns. He loses receiver DeSean Jackson, but Kelly said Foles is still expecting to take a step forward in his production this season.

"That's the one thing about Nick that is so encouraging. He always wants to get better," Kelly said. "He constantly improved as the season went along. You'll see a lot of players plateau. But I think he continued to improve. We're all hopeful. But knowing his work ethic, I think in Year 2 he's going to do a lot of improving."

While Foles lost Jackson, he still has Riley Cooper and Jeremy Maclin back, as well as the addition of Darren Sproles via trade. 


Nick Foles will miss DeSean Jackson


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2014) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles lost his favorite target when the team released DeSean Jackson. According to ESPN, Foles targeted Jackson more than any other receiver (70 times) last season and completed 71.4 percent of those passes to him.

In addition, quarterbacks throwing to Jackson posted a 124.4 passer rating last year -- highest of any wideout.

While Foles is losing Jackson, he'll get receiver Jeremy Maclin back from a knee injury.


Mark Sanchez signing with Eagles is official


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/28/2014) The Eagles have announced the signing of quarterback Mark Sanchez. The deal is for one year.

"I've said many times that we will always look to add quality players at the quarterback position," Eagles head coach Chip Kelly said in a statement. "We consider it a key position in this game, so having the chance to add Mark to that group was a no-brainer for us. Mark has started 68 games in his career and has taken his teams deep into the playoffs multiple times, so we really like what he brings to the table from an experience standpoint. I also had the chance to see Mark play in college and have always had respect for his game and athletic ability."

It is believed Sanchez will compete for the backup role behind Nick Foles


Chip Kelly has to-do list for Nick Foles


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2014) Eagles coach Chip Kelly said quarterback Nick Foles, who threw 27 touchdowns and two interceptions last season, has plenty of room for improvement, reports Philly.com.

"Now, it's the intricacies of it," Kelly said about Foles' development. "Exactly what is my footwork? How is my ballhandling? How can I do a better job when I don't have the ball, how can I do a better job faking? What can I do . . . to influence the coverage, how can I move the safety, because I really want to throw the post. Instead of just going, 'Hey, the safety's on the post, I gotta throw the checkdown.'

"That's the one thing about Nick that's so encouraging is, he always wants to get better. I think he improved as the season went along. A lot of times, you'll see some players kind of plateau, but I think he continued to improve."


Eagles using Broncos' offense as a model


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/2/2014) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles won't lack for targets in 2014. Receivers Riley Cooper and Jeremy Maclin are under contract, joining receiver DeSean Jackson, tight ends Zach Ertz and Brent Celek and of course running back LeSean McCoy.

Askef if there will be enough passes to go around, general manager Howie Roseman told Birds 24/7 that he's trying to follow Denver's model.

"When you look at how many offensive plays that you have over the course of the season, there’s a lot of opportunities to spread the ball around, get people involved," Roseman said. "I don’t think you have to look further than when you look at the Denver Broncos and how many options they have in their passing game and how big of an advantage that is when you have guys all around the field and you can get different personnel groups and that’s what we’re looking to do. We're looking to be an explosive, dynamic offense and when you talk about the skills that he has, Jeremy, certainly he adds to that group."

Maclin was the latest to sign when he inked a one-year deal Saturday.


Nick Foles named Offensive MVP of Pro Bowl


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/26/2014) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles was unable to lead Team Sanders to victory in the Pro Bowl, but he still was named offensive MVP. Foles completed 7 of 10 throws for 89 yards, including a 12-yard touchdown to Browns tight end Jordan Cameron.

The touchdown put Team Sanders ahead 21-14 with 4:41 remaining, setting the stage for Team Rice's comeback.


Andrew Luck set to start in Pro Bowl


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/25/2014) Chuck Pagano will start his Colts quarterback, Andrew Luck, in the Pro Bowl on Sunday, the Charlotte Observer has reported. Pagano added, however, that Panthers quarterback Cam Newton and Eagles counterpart Nick Foles will see plenty of action.

Report: Bill Lazor new offensive coordinator in Miami


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/15/2014) The Dolphins have hired Eagles quarterback coach Bill Lazor as their new offensive coordinator, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel has reported.

Lazor, who was rumored to be a candidate for the same post in Detroit under new coach Jim Caldwell, has been credited for helping Philadelphia quarterback Nick Foles blossom into a productive starter in 2013.


Report: Bill Lazor to become Lions' offensive coordinator


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/14/2014) Eagles quarterbacks coach Bill Lazor will be named Lions' offensive coordinator, reports ESPN. Lazor has twice served as an offensive coordinator, but never at the NFL level.

Observers give Lazor a lot of credit for Nick Foles' rapid development this season.


Chip Kelly sold on Nick Foles


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/6/2014) Chip Kelly called quarterback Nick Foles "a great decision-maker" as the coach put the wraps on the Eagles' season.

“I think he’s extremely accurate where he puts the ball," Kelly added, per Birds 24/7. "I think he’s very young, and I think people still sometimes forget about that. He didn’t become our starter until after Mike [Vick] went down in the Giants game. But in the short body of work he did, I think he did an outstanding job.

“Our evaluations are based on demonstrated abilities, and he demonstrated during the time that he was in there that he deserved to be the starting quarterback.”
