Summary

Nick Foles was the apple of Philadelphia's eye back in 2013 when he started ten games for Chip Kelly and threw 27 touchdowns and just two interceptions while leading the league in touchdown rate, yards per attempt, yards per completion, and passer rating. His play tailed off the following season, and he moved onto St. Louis in 2015, struggling in 11 starts (4-7 as a starter, seven touchdowns, and ten interceptions). From there he signed with Andy Reid in Kansas City, where he familiarized himself with Doug Pederson and Reid's offense that combines classic West Coast principles with modern spread formations. Foles' familiarity with the system made him a free agent priority last year, as a mentor and steady hand in support of Wentz. When Carson Wentz went down against the Rams in a season-ending fashion, Foles took over and did enough in the final weeks to secure the #1 seed in the NFC Playoffs. In the playoffs, Foles had a run for the ages, completing 77-of-106 passes (73% completion rate) for 971 yards, six touchdowns, and just one interception. He threw for 373 yards and three touchdowns in the Super Bowl, outdueling Tom Brady. Backup quarterbacks generally aren't fantasy commodities on draft day, but Foles may be the exception. Carson Wentz is on schedule with his rehabilitation process and hopes to be on the field for Week One. However, given Foles' stellar command of Doug Pederson's offense, the team won't rush Wentz back, and Foles could start a handful of games, possibly even as many as six if Wentz needs to stay on the PUP list.

Eagles | Nick Foles returns to practice (Sat Aug 11, 11:54 AM) - Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (neck, back) resumed practicing Saturday, Aug. 11.

Our View: Foles doesn't need a ton of work in training camp or the preseason. The veteran has a known skill set, so the Eagles are just taking it easy on Foles as he returns to practice.

Eagles | Nick Foles dealing with spasms (Tue Aug 7, 12:34 PM) - Updating an earlier report, Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (back, neck) is reportedly dealing with spasms in his trapezius and neck area. He has missed three straight practices and is not expected to participate in the team's preseason opener Thursday, Aug. 9.

Our View: Foles is important as the potential Week 1 starter for the Eagles, so they will be as careful with him as they are being with Carson Wentz as he returns from a serious knee injury and surgery. Expect to see a lot of Nate Sudfeld over the next month.

Eagles | Nick Foles out of practice (Tue Aug 7, 09:23 AM) - Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (upper body) is out of practice Tuesday, Aug. 7, due to upper-body soreness. He's unlikely to play in the preseason opener this week.

Our View: Expect to see a ton of Nate Sudfeld, who will likely be the backup to Carson Wentz next year. Joe Callahan should also get a lot of snaps.

Eagles | Nick Foles sits again (Mon Aug 6, 12:20 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (undisclosed) was sidelined for the second straight practice Monday, Aug. 6, because of upper body soreness.

Our View: The Eagles are working Carson Wentz back from the knee injury that ended his 2017 season. Foles took over last year and we all know how that ended as the veteran quarterback was named Super Bowl MVP. Wentz is on a good track to return in Week 1 of the regular season but the team is taking it easy on Foles as you never know if they're going to need his experience once again as their starter.
