News you need to know

From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Dec 11): Foles is one of the better backup quarterbacks in the NFL and he has a long tenure in the Reid/Pederson system. He is a viable replacement for Carson Wentz in fantasy lineups this week, and possibly a solid QB2/Superflex against the Giants.

General News (Mon Dec 11): will start for the Eagles in place of the injured Carson Wentz.

Week 15: at New York Giants

All QB vs NYG

FBG says: Great matchup. Last week was an absolutely brutal injury to Carson Wentz who was lost for the season with an ACL injury. In comes backup Nick Foles who while he was not asked to do much last week did look competent as the veteran has game experience and while he is not on the level of Wentz, he should be able to keep this Eagles team competitive down the stretch as they prepare for the playoffs. Helping Foles is that they should get Zach Ertz back this week from a concussion as he missed last week's game which will give Foles an additional target in the passing offense. The Giants pass defense is an absolute mess at the moment as Brandon Dixon is filling in for the injured Janoris Jenkins and has been one of the worst cornerbacks in the league so far. Over the last three games, the Giants have allowed the third most passing yards per game at 287 yards per game including last week where they allowed 332 yards to Dak Prescott which was a career high for the Giants quarterback. The Giants did shut down the Eagles earlier this season although the one player that did have success was Zach Ertz as the Giants have struggled with tight ends for most of the season allowing both the most yardage and most touchdowns to opposing tight ends this season. This is a prime spot for the Eagles to bring Nick Foles into the mix in what should be a tremendous matchup.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 14 vs LAR (6 / 10 / 42 / 0 / 0 pass, 1 / 9 / 0 rush)

While we were hoping not to have to mention Nick Foles' name except for maybe Week 17 when the Eagles rested their players, here we are. Foles came in during the fourth quarter and really was not asked to push the ball down the field as while he threw the ball 10 times he only had 4.2 yards per attempt. It's tough to get a grasp as far as how Foles will do in this offense due to a small sample size, but he was more of a game manager and leaned on the run when he came in this game.

Eagles | Nick Foles a highlighted Week 15 play (Mon Dec 11, 12:15 PM) - 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.

Our 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.
