  Eagles | Nick Foles staying in Philadelphia     Tue Mar 27, 02:46 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles will not be traded this offseason, according to head coach Doug Pederson.

  Eagles | No strong offers for Nick Foles    Sat Mar 24, 09:49 PM

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said there has not been an offer made that would even tempt the team into trading QB Nick Foles.

Footballguys view: Last season was the perfect storm for Foles. Unless Frank Reich, Doug Pederson and the Eagles offensive scheme was coming with him, nobody was paying a premium for a guy with more bad tape than not. He's in a great situation with Philadelphia, and probably the exact one he needs to be in.

  Eagles | Nick Foles receives $3 million bonus    Sun Mar 18, 06:57 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles is due a $3 million roster bonus on Sunday, March 18.

Footballguys view: The Eagles may not trade away Foles for a few reasons. First, he's playing at a cheap rate compared to other backup QBs...especially after winning Super Bowl 52 MVP. Second, the Eagles are best off keeping him if Carson Wentz gets slowed in his recovery from knee surgery. He's on track to play for Week 1, but keeping Foles gives them great insurance in case Wentz needs a bit more time.

  Eagles | Big asking price for Nick Foles    Mon Mar 5, 01:34 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles has been a trade target for a few teams this offseason, but the Eagles are telling teams that they are looking for more than the first- and fourth-round draft picks they received when they traded QB Sam Bradford to the Minnesota Vikings.

Footballguys view: The Eagles are 'very open' to trading Foles so long as the price is right. They feel like Carson Wentz will be ready for Week 1 and they like third-string quarterback Nate Sudfeld. We'll see if anybody bites on that price tag.

  Eagles | Nick Foles may be trade target    Sun Feb 4, 03:13 PM

The Philadelphia Eagles are expecting to receive trade interest on QB Nick Foles this offseason.

Footballguys view: If they can get a starter price for him, they should listen, but Carson Wentz is no lock for Week 1 and they'll want to bring him back at a very deliberate pace.

  Eagles | Nick Foles in historic spot for Super Bowl    Tue Jan 30, 02:30 AM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles will have registered the third-fewest starts (three) during the regular season of any quarterback to start under center in the ensuing Super Bowl. Retired QBs Jeff Hostetler and Doug Williams, with two apiece, were the only other quarterbacks to have started fewer games during the season prior to their starts in the Super Bowl -- both went on to win.

Footballguys view: Foles played maybe the best game of his career (save for that seven touchdown game vs Oakland) last week in the NFC Championship game. He has a lot of experience in the Pederson/Reid offensive system and should be more comfortable than a typical backup.

  Eagles | Nick Foles improves on deep ball    Thu Jan 25, 09:12 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles was 2-for-13 during the regular season and first postseason game on throws of 20 yards or more prior to the club's NFC Championship win over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, Jan. 21, in which he finished 4-for-5 on such passes for 172 yards.

Footballguys view: Lots of credit here needs to go to Doug Pederson and Frank Reich for a great offensive game plan to exploit what little weaknesses the Vikings top-rated overall defense presented. The Patriots defense is easier to crack, so Foles positive momentum should continue.

  Eagles | Nick Foles says ribs are fine    Wed Jan 24, 02:31 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (ribs) said he did have X-Rays on his injured ribs but said the ribs are 'great.'

Footballguys view: The X-rays are just a precaution. This injury was considered minor after the game, and the 'great' feeling that Nick Foles has is because he's headed to the Super Bowl as the starter for the Eagles.

  Eagles | Nick Foles had historically good showing    Tue Jan 23, 02:47 AM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles' 97.0 Total QBR in the team's NFC Conference Championship victory over the Minnesota Vikings Sunday, Jan. 21, was the fourth-highest QBR in a playoff game since 2006, which is as far back as the metric goes.

Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (ribs) had precautionary X-rays on his ribs following the NFC Championship game, according to a team source, but the injury isn't considered serious.

Footballguys view: Foles is going to have some time to heal before the Super Bowl. Early reports indicate Foles is going to be fine, and we'll have an update when practice happens next week.

  Eagles | Nick Foles already has playoff history    Thu Jan 18, 11:47 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles is the first quarterback in NFL history to register a passer rating of 100 or more in each of his first two career playoff starts (minimum of 30 attempts), with the first one coming during the 2013 season and the most recent being the team's Divisional Round win Saturday, Jan. 13, against the Atlanta Falcons.

  Eagles | Nick Foles has been worse at home    Tue Jan 16, 04:57 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles has thrown just one touchdown compared to two interceptions in five games played in Philadelphia this season. Meanwhile, he has thrown four touchdowns and zero interceptions in two road contests. The Eagles face the Minnesota Vikings in Philadelphia in the NFC Championship this weekend.

Footballguys view: Foles will need a solid game to beat the Vikings in the NFC Championship Game. He took some time to get going in the Divisional Round, and Foles didn't have a great box score after the game. He didn't need to and the Eagles moved on. Those numbers and Foles' production will have to be better if they want to advance to the Super Bowl.

  Eagles | Nick Foles held without a TD in division game    Sat Jan 13, 08:01 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles went 23-for-30 for 246 yards in a 15-10 win over the Atlanta Falcons. Foles did not score a touchdown, nor was he intercepted.

Footballguys view: Foles was very effective as a passer on Saturday. He didn't seem rattled under pressure and made several key throws to keep drives alive (6-of-13 on third downs as a team). Expect a similar game plan for Foles in the NFC Championship Game next week.

  Eagles | Nick Foles solid in previous playoff effort    Tue Jan 9, 03:35 AM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles has started one postseason contest in his career leading up to the team's Divisional Round playoff game against the Atlanta Falcons. In Jan. 2014, Foles faced the New Orleans Saints and despite coming up short in defeat, he enjoyed a quality outing, completing 23-of-33 passes for 195 yards and two touchdowns. He also had one rush for three yards.

Footballguys view: Foles isn't a bad starter, he just needs to be protected well and stay on script to make the most of his passing ability. It will be up to the Falcons to see if they can make Foles move in the pocket (or out of the pocket) and throw from platforms he's not comfortable with.

  Eagles | Nick Foles in no danger of getting pulled    Tue Jan 2, 01:47 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles will remain the starting quarterback during the playoffs. After briefly leaving the door open to benching Foles earlier in the week if he played poorly, head coach Doug Pederson told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, 'My guy is Nick Foles, end of story.'

Footballguys view: As the no1 seed in the NFC, the Eagles have home field advantage throughout the playoffs. They will face the lowest seeded team that survives Wild Card Weekend. Foles has struggled at times after taking over for an injured Carson Wentz, but the Eagles basically have no other option but to stick with him. Nate Sudfeld is the backup quarterback to Foles and his only pro experience came in Week 17 against the Cowboys last week.

  Eagles | Week 17 game recap for Philly    Sun Dec 31, 04:01 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles went 4-for-11 for 39 yards and one interception against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 17. RB LeGarrette Blount rushed for 37 yards on nine carries. TE Zach Ertz caught two passes for 24 yards during the game, while WR Alshon Jeffery caught one pass for eight yards.

Footballguys view: Foles has been woeful since piloting touchdown drives with ease against the Giants two weeks ago. The Eagles have the #1 seed in the NFC, but they are vulnerable.

  Eagles | Philly noncommittal on Nick Foles for Week 17    Tue Dec 26, 12:59 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles is not a lock to start or play a significant number of snaps in Week 17 against Dallas Cowboys.

Footballguys view: Week 17 is going to be treated like a preseason game by multiple teams out there. The Eagles have visions of making a deep postseason run with Foles as the starter. They could get him a few series then give way to Nate Sudfeld. A sixth-round pick out of Indiana in 2016 (Washington), Sudfeld has never thrown a pass in a regular season game. He's a tall (6'6") pocket passer with a rocket arm.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles completed 24 of his 38 passes for 237 yards and four touchdowns in a 34-29 win over the New York Giants in Week 15.

Footballguys view: Foles was efficient and effective and destroyed a Giants defense that has been easy to solve in the second half of the season. He'll be a solid QB1 against a below average Raiders defense next week.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles has a good matchup against the New York Giants in Week 15 after QB Carson Wentz (knee) was lost for the season.

Footballguys view: We'd expect the Eagles to be more conservative and run the ball more with Foles at the helm. That being said, Foles is a streaming option for fantasy owners in Week 15 due to this opponent.
