From the upgrade/downgrade report (Tue Sep 16): Foles had another down game, but he was bailed out by Darren Sproles. He is missing open receivers (or not seeing them), but he is also dealing with a banged up offensive line and some drops from wide receivers. The fantasy numbers are still acceptable, but Foles is not playing anywhere near his level from last year.

Week 3: vs Washington Redskins

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Nick Foles led another second-half comeback after being down 6-17 at the half last week - he's currently the sixth-best fantasy quarterback in the land with 48/82 for 653 yards passing, three TDs and two interceptions to his credit through two contests. Jeremy Maclin (21 targets for 8/142/2 receiving), Darren Sproles (13 for 11/166/0), LeSean McCoy (11 for 10/64/0), Zach Ertz (11 for 7/163/1) and Riley Cooper (10 for 5/37/0) have been the main cogs in this attack so far during 2014. The Washington pass D ranks second in the NFL averaging 164.5 net passing yards allowed per game, with two passing scores allowed and one interception generated to date. Jacksonville suffered 10 sacks for -70 yards at Washington last week, eventually posting 14/28 for 123 net yards passing, one TD and one interception thrown. The Washington D is attacking passers heading into the third game of the season. Two strong units face off in this one - neither has an edge over the other.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 1 vs JAX (27 / 45 / 322 / 2 / 1 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

Foles started the game off with a 26 yard pass to Zach Ertz over the middle of the field with a quick catch and run pass. On a 3rd and 5 on the opening drive Foles was sacked and fumbled the ball which led to a Jacksonville offensive touchdown. On the very next drive for the Eagles, Foles was once again hit hard from behind and fumbled the ball once again, and again the Jacksonville offense capitalized and scored a touchdown. On the third drive Foles over threw Matthews and then on the next play felt the pressure and had to throw the ball quickly to avoid another sack. Foles was sacked for a third time early in the 2nd quarter and forced the Eagles to punt the ball away as another drive was stalled. Foles had a great look to rookie WR Jordan Matthews and delivered a 30 yard pass on the money for a big gain for the Eagles. Foles threw a nice ball to the corner of the endzone for Cooper that he couldn't hang onto and then had a 10 yard pass to Maclin in the redzone for a 1st down. He follewed those two plays up with his third turnover of the game and an intercepted pass in the endzone on a target to Brent Celek. He continued to feel pressure in the game and was sacked again but this time made sure to secure the ball as he saw the pressure coming. Foles felt some more pressure and was sacked for a 17 yards but Foles looked to bobble the ball but smartly took the loss and hung onto the ball. He then looked for Maclin in the endzone and just missed him on a third down play where it looked like Maclin may of been held. Foles looked more settled to start the second half and came out making quick and smart passes to both Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper and kept the game moving quickly. He had a couple more quick strikes to Celek and Sproles and set the Eagles up for a 4th and 1 on the Jaguars 49 yard line where Sproles ended up breaking throw and scoring the Eagles first touchdown of the game. Foles continued his confidence in the second half and threw a strike down the middle to Zach Ertz for a 25 yard touchdown pass. Foles continued to lead the offense down the field with 1st down strikes to both Matthews and then a big play to Ertz for a 26 yard gain that put the Eagles into field goal range to tie the game at 17-17. With the game tied up Foles found a wide open Jeremy Maclin for a 68 yard touchdown where he went untouched to the endzone. Foles showed a great arm on the throw and put it in the perfect spot for Maclin.

2014 Week 2 vs IND (21 / 37 / 331 / 1 / 1 pass, 4 / 22 / 0 rush)

Foles started the game out with a 12 yard screen pass to McCoy to help get the ball out to the Eagles 29 yard line. He followed that up with a 15 yard short pass to Maclin on the left side of the field. On the same drive he found a wide open Zach Ertz up top for a big 27 yard gain and then went back to him 2 plays later for another first down and 14 more yards. On the second drive of the game Foles used his new weapon Darren Sproles and gave him a short pass over the middle and Sproles did the rest with a 57 yard gain where he just out ran half of the Colts defense. From the 20 yard line Foles threw a perfect ball to Cooper in the corner of the endzone and Cooper just missed the ball completely and let the ball slip through his hands. Foles ran a few times in the game when things were wide open for him and picked up 5 yard and 6 yard gains on his first two runs. He threw a ball into tight coverage to Maclin for a 15 yard gain and a first down to continue an Eagles drive that would eventually lead to a field goal. Foles overthrew Maclin in the endzone on a 30 yard pass where Maclin had a little space to make a catch. Foles looked to use both McCoy and Sproles as much as possible in the passing game and on the last drive of the first half he delivered back to back passes to Sproles for a first down and then followed that up with a quick strike to rookie Jordan Matthews for a 17 yard gain. With 40 seconds left in the first half Foles tossed up a ball down field to Jeremy Maclin and the ball was grabbed out of the air by Greg Toler. The ball was a decent pass and Foles looked to challenge the Colts defender but this time around Toler won the battle. Foles missed Maclin on a first down throw by simple over throwing him on the right sidelines. Even being down 14 points late in the 3rd quarter Foles continued to look confident and lead the Eagles downfield with key passes to Ertz on a 21 yard gain and Cooper on a pass interference call which helped place the ball on the Colts 1 yard line. Foles remained calm and cool late in the 4th quarter and lead the Eagles down the field with a 51 yard screen pass to Darren Sproles and then finding Jeremy Maclin in the endzone for the touchdown. With under 2 minutes left in the game the Eagles got the ball back in a tied 27-27 game. Foles immediately went to work with a huge 24 yard passing play to TE Zach Ertz and then a 17 yard short pass to Sproles and set up the game winning field goal.

Eagles | Nick Foles ready to improve (Thu Sep 11, 10:41 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles said the indecisiveness that led to him missing several open receivers in the team's Week 1 game is a 'correctable' issue.

Our View: Foles could have thrown for over 600 yards by some estimations. The takeaway here is that Foles has a lot of untapped upside, but if this becomes persistent, his grip on the job could loosen. Washington could also have some great success against the Jags secondary this weekend if Robert Griffin III is given time to throw.
