From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 28): If Foles can't get it done at home against a Steelers defense that had been giving out multi-pass touchdown days like candy over the last season, then he isn't trustworthy in any fantasy situation this year.

Week 4: at Arizona Cardinals

All QB vs ARI

Mark and Joe say: Bad matchup. Nick Foles (19/28 for 197 yards passing, zero TDs and one interception vs. Pittsburgh) did nothing to excite fantasy owners in a low-scoring affair vs. Pittsburgh last week - he leaned on Kenny Britt (10 targets for 7/102/0 receiving) and Tavon Austin (five for 5/38/0) the most during the torpid outing - nobody else on the team had over 20 yards receiving. To date, Foles has amassed 54/87 for 644 yards passing, two TDs and one interception thrown over three games, with 6/22/1 rushing - not exactly a fantasy bonanza for his disappointed owners. Meanwhile, the Cardinals' pass D has been crushing opposing quarterbacks - Colin Kaepernick was intercepted four times and held to 67 yards passing on the day last week, and he was also sacked twice for -14 yards (53 net passing yards for those of you keeping tally at home). Two weeks ago Chicago managed 22/32 for 226 net yards passing, two TDs and one interception in another blowout loss to Arizona - to date, the Cardinals are ranked 10th in the NFL averaging 211.0 net passing yards allowed per game, with seven interceptions generated (first in the NFL) vs. just two passing scores given out to date. This is a bad matchup for the anemic St. Louis passing attack.

Recent Game Summaries

2015 Week 3 vs PIT (19 / 28 / 197 / 0 / 1 pass, 1 / 10 / 0 rush)

Nick Foles was efficient with short passes and screens throughout the game. Foles was unsuccessful throwing down-field against the inexperienced Steelers secondary. On the Rams opening series, Foles completed a 15 yard screen pass to Tre Mason. Later in the series on a 2nd and 9, Foles completed a 7 yard play action pass to Lance Kendricks. Foles went back to Kendricks on 3rd down but was unsuccessful as the pass was a tad low. During the second series, Foles completed a couple of short passes to Tavon Austin, which resulted in first downs. Foles moved the ball down-field during the third series with a few passes to Kenny Britt. The drive stalled at the Steelers 31 yard line and the Rams had to kick a field goal. Early in the second half, Foles had Kendricks open on a deep route that should have resulted in an easy touchdown. Foles threw a perfect pass hitting Kendricks in stride but he could not complete the reception. The momentum shifted back to the Steelers on the next play when the defense sacked Foles. Early in the 4th quarter Foles put together a 62 yard drive that stalled out in the red zone after multiple offensive penalties. Midway through the 4th quarter the Rams were down 9-6 and had another opportunity. Foles threw a reckless pass down the middle of the field into double coverage. The pass intended for Kendricks was intercepted setting up another Steelers field goal. During the Rams final series on a 4th and 6, Foles connected with Britt for what looked like a first down around mid-field. The play was overturned after the replay confirmed that the ground caused the ball to come loose when Britt was coming down.

2015 Week 2 vs WAS (17 / 32 / 150 / 1 / 0 pass, 1 / 1 / 0 rush)

Nick Foles lack of production was greatly influenced by the poor pass blocking of his young offensive line. Foles was under constant pressure and his receivers did not gain quick separation. During the first series of the game on 3rd and 5, Foles panicked under pressure and dropped the football. The Rams fell behind by the middle of the first quarter and Foles was not able to overcome timing issues with his receivers. During the third series of the game on a 3rd and 5, Foles had to throw the ball away due to heavy pressure. Late in the second quarter, Foles overthrew Tavon Austin on a play action pass. Austin was open but Foles didn't have time to set his feet in the pocket. Early in the 3rd quarter, the Rams settled for a field goal after minimal gains on screen passes to Tre Mason and Benny Cunningham. After the Rams defense forced a fumble recovery, Foles threw the only Rams touchdown of the day. On a 2nd and 1 from the Redskins 39 yard line, Foles completed a perfectly thrown pass to Kenny Britt in the end zone. Britt outran two defenders and Foles dropped the pass right on target. This cut the Redskins lead to 17-10. The momentum was stopped on the next couple of Rams series with penalties and receivers not gaining separation. The Redskins put the game away on a seven minute scoring drive in the 4th quarter. The Rams picked up two short first downs on the next series with short passes to Jared Cook and Benny Cunningham. Cook was the first look on many of Foles passes throughout the afternoon.

2015 Week 1 vs SEA (18 / 27 / 297 / 1 / 0 pass, 4 / 11 / 1 rush)

Nick Foles managed a good game with only a couple of major mistakes. On the second series of the game, Foles drove the offense down the field with short passes to Jared Cook and Benny Cunningham. After a Tavon Austin rushing touchdown the offense was quiet the remainder of the first half. On the first series of the second half, Foles fumbled away the shotgun snap after the offensive line committed an illegal motion penalty. On the Rams next series, Foles completed a 16 yard play action pass to Stedman Bailey and a 29 yard play action pass to Jared Cook, who was tackled on the three yard line. Foles followed that play up with a play action bootleg pass option for a rushing touchdown. Foles scampered around the right side of the line for an easy touchdown. Later in the second half after Seattle tied the game at 24 points, Foles took a blind side hit in which he fumbled the ball. The Seattle defense scooped up the fumble for the defensive touchdown. Foles battled back the next series completing a 6 yard pass to Tavon Austin on a 3rd and 3. Later in that drive on a 3rd and 15, Foles found Kenny Britt coming across the field for a key 21 yard gain. With under a minute left in the game from the Seahawks 37 yard line, Foles connected with Lance Kendricks on a vertical route for a 37 yard touchdown reception. The Seahawks defender slipped allowing Kendricks to run into the end zone untouched. In overtime, Foles completed one perfectly placed 22 yard pass before the Rams kicked the game winning field goal.

Rams | Nick Foles disappoints in loss (Sun Sep 27, 07:39 PM) - St. Louis Rams QB Nick Foles completed 19 of his 28 pass attempts for 197 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in the Week 3 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He also ran once for 10 yards.

Our View: If Foles can't do it against the Steelers defense, he's not worth trotting out under any circumstances. The Cardinals should eat him alive next week.
