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.


Nick Foles extremely accurate in rout


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/23/2013) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles completed 21 of 25 throws for 230 yards and two touchdowns in the blowout of Chicago. His 84.0 completion percentage marked a season high.

Undoubtedly benefitting from a strong run game, Foles has accounted for 28 touchdowns and three turnovers in 12 games. On Sunday night he spread the ball around, six receivers totaling between 26 and 58 yards.

Foles threw both his scoring passes in the first quarter, hitting wideout Riley Cooper on a 5-yarder and tight end Brent Celek from 10 yards out. Foles added two rushes for 17 yards.

He wraps up his incredible regular season Week 17 at Dallas.


Chip Kelly won't rest starters regardless of Cowboys' outcome


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2013) By the time the Eagles play Chicago on Sunday night, they'll know if that game means anything in the division race. If Dallas beats Washington earlier Sunday, the Week 17 Eagles-Cowboys game decides the NFC East no matter what.

So this item from the Philadelphia Inquirer should come as a relief to Fantasy owners. Eagles coach Chip Kelly confirmed he won't rest starters -- including quarterback Nick Foles, running back LeSean McCoy and receiver DeSean Jackson -- even if the Cowboys beat the Redskins.

Still, it's fair to wonder whether Kelly will play them the entire game if Week 17 is all that matters.


Nick Foles looks to improve on 428-yard performance


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2013) With 26 touchdowns against three turnovers, Eagles quarterback Nick Foles ranks third in weekly scoring (23.9) in standard Fantasy leagues entering Week 16. Only Peyton Manning and Drew Brees score more.

Foles is coming off a career-high 428 passing yards in the loss at Minnesota, and he ran for 41 more. It was actually one of his poorer efforts. He underthrew DeSean Jackson for his second interception this season and piled up much of his yardage against soft coverage.

"I definitely missed some throws," Foles told the Philadelphia Inquirer. "I was high on a few and inaccurate on a few, and those are things that you go back to the film and see why it was."

The Bears give up the 8th-fewest Fantasy points (16.7 per game) to quarterbacks and have allowed one 300-yard passing game all year. But Foles is matchup-proof at this point. He's thrown at least three touchdowns in four of his past six starts.

CBSSports.com senior Fantasy experts Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard rate Foles the No. 2 quarterback play behind Peyton Manning for Fantasy's championship week. 


Nick Foles has another strong game Week 15


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles turned in another big game Week 15 against the Vikings.

Foles finished the contest 30 for 48, with 428 yards and three touchdowns. Foles also managed to throw a two-point conversion. He had one interception. DeSean Jackson was Foles' primary target. Foles targeted Jackson 16 times, and connected on 10 of those throws. The team had a tough time running against Minnesota, so Foles had to air it out against a poor Vikings secondary. Foles also ran the ball five times for 41 yards, which actually led the team. 

He'll look to continue his hot streak Week 16 against the Bears.


Foles fine after first pick in defeat of Detroit


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles answered any questions Sunday against Detroit about how he would react to throwing his first interception of the season. That answer: Just fine.

Foles tossed his first pick in the second quarter with a blizzard making visibility nearly impossible. He finished the first half just 4 of 10 for 35 yards.

But he rebounded in style by hitting on 7 of 12 for 144 yards and a 19-yard touchdown pass to DeSean Jackson in the second half. He guided the team to two fourth quarter scoring drives to overcome deficits of 14-0 and 20-14 for a 34-20 victory.

Foles, who has led his Eagles to five consecutive victories, will try to make it six when they travel to Minnesota for a Week 15 game next Sunday.


Nick Foles a fine Fantasy play against Lions


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/4/2013) Fantasy owners of Eagles quarterback Nick Foles should not only thank Nick Foles for the production of Nick Foles. They should also thank a 32nd-ranked Philadelphia pass defense that forces Foles to try to keep up by throwing the ball.

Not that Foles hasn't risen to the occasion. The Eagles are 5-2 since he was moved into the starting lineup. He has completed 124 of 196 passes for 1,791 yards, 19 touchdowns and - get this - zero interceptions. He has even added 145 yards and two scores on the ground.

More encouraging this week is that he is playing at home against pass-happy Detroit and a high-scoring game should result. The Lions rank 26th in the NFL in passing yards allowed (3,147) and 19th in touchdowns yielded through the air (21).

Foles is so torrid that a statistical correction could happen any week. But the combination of an explosive Lions pass offense against a terrible Eagles pass defense makes it unlikely that Foles won't put up big numbers on Sunday. The three CBSSports.com senior Fantasy writers all rank Foles in the top six among NFL quarterbacks in Week 14. Sounds about right - he should be active in all formats.


Nick Foles has three touchdowns in win


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/1/2013) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles completed 21-of-34 passes for 237 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 24-21 win over the Cardinals. It was the third time in his last four games with three or more touchdowns. 

Foles, who also ran nine times for 22 yards, avoided throwing his first interception this season in close fashion; a fourth quarter pass was picked off by Patrick Peterson, but called back on a Cardinals penalty. Otherwise, Foles looked efficient throughout the game, throwing deep on occasion and being the same quarterback he was before the bye. 

Foles and the Eagles face the Lions in Week 14. 


Nick Foles is a sneaky source of rushing yards


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/27/2013) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles went into the team's bye week with his star slightly fading. After his crazy Week 9, seven-touchdown performance, Foles put together a solid game against Green Bay (three touchdowns and 228 yards) and then failed to throw a touchdown pass (while running for one) in a 298-yard performance in Week 11.

It's not that Foles has struggled -- he has yet to throw an interception this season while being an underrated source of rushing yards (20 or more in three of his last four games). But it doesn't hurt to look at the diminishing returns, especially with a matchup against Arizona this Sunday. The Cardinals have allowed opposing quarterbacks to reach the 20-point mark just once in the last four games, allowing a total of six touchdowns in that span. However, the quarterbacks they limited were Matt Ryan (without Julio Jones or Roddy White), Chad Henne (with a limited Cecil Shorts), and Andrew Luck (without Reggie Wayne). The Eagles are at full force and will be rested coming off a bye.

Foles is a solid start for Week 13, but if there are slam-dunk options available (the Drew Brees/Tony Romo types), this matchup isn't favorable enough to push him into "stud" territory.

Eagles coach tabs Nick Foles as starter for rest of season


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/26/2013) To little surprise, Eagles coach Chip Kelly named Nick Foles the starting quarterback for the rest of the season Tuesday. Kelly said he doesn't want Foles looking over his shoulder now that Michael Vick has recovered from a hamstring injury.

Michael Vick says Nick Foles should start


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/22/2013) Eagles quarterback Michael Vick says Nick Foles should be named the starter when the team returns from their bye, according to NFL.com.

"In all honesty, in all fairness, how can you take a guy out of the game who's been playing so well," Vick said in a local radio interview. Vick said he did not want to be a distraction for the team, and that he understands the situation. An injury to Kevin Kolb in 2010 allowed Vick to step in as the starter.

Foles has tossed 16 touchdowns to no interceptions. Vick is in his final season with the team.
