Summary

Chip Kelly played his quarterback decision close to the vest in the 2013 preseason. Ultimately he gave the job to Michael Vick, but a hamstring injury opened the door to Nick Foles; he never looked back. Foles was exceptional, leading his team to an 8-2 record as a starter. He completed 64% of his throws for 2,891 yards. Most impressively, he threw 27 touchdowns (leading the league with an 8.7% TD rate) against just two interceptions. He led the league in yards per attempt, yards per completion, and passer rating. Kelly proclaimed Foles the "starter for the next 1,000 years" this offseason and now the only question is what can Foles do for an encore? Given the potency of the offense, and the fact Foles will have a full offseason to prepare as the starter, it's reasonable to expect high level production. Yet, the Eagles were 27th in pass attempts last year and unless you think Foles can match last year's historic TD% rate, some regression is to be expected. He's a fantasy QB1, but don't get too overzealous and expect him to push for Top 3 honors. (May 21)

Latest News

Eagles | Nick Foles sharp (Fri Aug 22, 12:07 AM) - Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles completed 19 of 29 passes for 179 yards with one touchdown and one interception during the team's preseason game Thursday, Aug. 21. He led the offense to three scoring drives in the first half.

Our View: It will be interesting to see the progression of Foles in year two of the Chip Kelly offense. Foles is getting drafted at QB8 (7.11) in 12-team PPR leagues. The design of this offense is to run the rock--a lot. They won't go pass-happy unless they have to. This design could limit Foles' fantasy value compared to other quarterbacks. He's an efficient passer in a helluva offense, but there could be some frustration when choosing to start Foles from week-to-week.

Eagles | Nick Foles bounces back (Sat Aug 16, 03:11 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles performed well against the New England Patriots Friday, Aug. 15, following a poor outing in the team's first preseason game. Head coach Chip Kelly said he was pleased with Foles' play and how he moved the team down the field.

Our View: Foles did it without his two top targets at wide receiver. Both Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper missed the game against the Patriots. Foles showed good chemistry with rookie Jordan Matthews in the game.
