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.”


No quarterback went deep more often than Nick Foles


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/6/2014) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles threw deep on 17.4 percent of his passes, the highest rate among all quarterbacks, according to Pro Football Focus. Deep passes are defined as those targeted 20 or more yards downfield.

Foles ranked seventh in accuracy on deep throws, completing 25 of 55 for 803 yards and 14 touchdowns against one interception. Only Drew Brees threw more touchdowns (15) on deep balls, a fact that's more impressive considering Foles started only 10 games.


Nick Foles impresses enough to earn chance at raise


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(1/6/2014) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles drew praise from owner Jeffrey Lurie following his impressive 2013 campaign, but that doesn't mean he's guaranteed anything next season.

"I don't want to comment on any player, but how can you not be impressed with Nick, with everything he has accomplished," Lurie said immediately after the Eagles' 26-24 playoff loss to the Saints on Saturday, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. "He had no turnovers and led us back from 20-7. He is incredibly impressive."

Foles led the league in passer rating and set an NFL record in touchdown-to-interception ratio. The Eagles have Foles under contract at his rookie deal and will pay him $615,000 in 2014. After that, he will be eligible for a pay raise, which he could help himself by having another big season.

The Eagles will go into 2014 with Foles as the starter, and the report said he "should improve with a full offseason as the No. 1 guy and another year with Chip Kelly."


Nick Foles held under 200 yards in playoff debut


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/4/2014) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles turned in a solid performance but was held under 200 passing yards during Saturday's Wild Card playoff loss at home to the Saints.

Foles, playing in his first postseason game, hooked up with Riley Cooper for a 10-yard pass in the second quarter and a 3-yard pass to Zach Ertz in the fourth quarter. He completed 20 of 30 passes for 250 yards, with two touchdowns and no interceptions. He also rushed for three yards on one carry in a 26-24 defeat.

Beat goes on for Nick Foles


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles continued his superb play Week 17 at Dallas, completing 17 of 26 passes for 263 yards and two touchdowns without an interception. He did lose a fumble.

Foles, who faced heavy pressure and was sacked five times, finishes the regular season with 30 touchdowns (3 rushing) against four turnovers. Against Dallas he found running back LeSean McCoy for a 3-yard touchdown and tight end Brent Celek for a 14-yard score, both in the second quarter.

Foles faces the Saints in a Saturday playoff game.


Nick Foles will atone for first game vs. Dallas


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/24/2013) Nick Foles is not the same quarterback who faced the Cowboys in Week 7. In that game, Foles hit 11 of 29 throws for 80 yards and no touchdowns before suffering a concussion. It was his second start in place of Michael Vick, and Foles was erratic.

Foles enters Week 17 at Dallas as the league's top-rated passer (118.8). He's thrown 25 touchdowns against two interceptions and rushed for three more scores.

"When you have a new coaching staff and new players, you are going to grow and have growing pains," the 24-year-old Foles told USA Today. "You are going to have good moments and you are going to have bad moments. The key to them is how you are going to respond to each moment."

Foles responded well, obviously, and should redeem himself against Dallas. The Cowboys have fallen apart defensively since the first meeting. They give up the second-most Fantasy points (24.9 per game) to opposing quarterbacks. QBs have accounted for 10 touchdowns and two turnovers vs. Dallas the past three weeks.

Foles is a top-3 play Sunday night.
