From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 11): Foles is set up to flourish against a remaining schedule that includes Tennessee, Tampa Bay, Oakland, and Atlanta. He's a suitable QB1 against the Colts this week and going forward.

Week 11: at Indianapolis Colts

All QB vs IND

FBG says: Tough matchup. Nick Foles is primed to take the field for the first time since the first quarter of Week 1 when he suffered a broken collarbone. He will be a welcomed site after this Jaguars offense absolutely collapsed in their last outing before the bye. Foles should look to pick up right where he left off, as his last play was a touchdown pass to D.J. Chark. Chark has been the clear top option on an almost weekly basis, handily leading the team in all receiving categories. While his target share may take a slight dip with Dede Westbrook returning from injury this week, Chark remains a big-play threat who showed great chemistry with Foles throughout the preseason and early in Week 1. Westbrook is coming off a shoulder/neck injury that sidelined him in Week 8, so he could be eased back into this game but will be a much-welcomed slot target for Foles. Leonard Fournette has also been schemed into this passing offense on a much more regular basis than past seasons as he has already exceeded career highs for targets (51) and receptions (40), so it will be interesting to see if that continues with Foles under center. The Indianapolis passing defense showed up last week as they held the Dolphins to just 169 passing yards with no touchdowns and an interception. While this group has been inconsistent at times, they have now allowed just three passing touchdowns while snatching four interceptions across their last five games--including outings against Deshaun Watson and Patrick Mahomes. Their secondary, overall, has been solid despite a few weak spots at cornerback--notably Rock Ya-Sin as their most exploitable guy in the secondary. Cornerback Pierre Desir has missed three straight weeks with a hamstring strain and is questionable to suit up this week--however, Desir was struggling to start the season and backup Marvell Tell has played at a similar level for the past three weeks. Chark should have the talent to win his matchup on the outside, but the other Jaguars receivers could struggle here. Play from the Colts safeties and linebackers alike has also been decent. With the leadership from Darius Leonard, these Colts linebackers have been tough on opposing pass-catching running backs, allowing just two backs to finish with over 30 receiving yards in a game this season while allowing no receiving touchdowns to running backs since Week 1.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 1 vs KC (5 / 8 / 75 / 1 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

Nick Foles only played two possessions (11 snaps) before suffering a fractured left clavicle when Chiefs defensive tackle landed on him hard. Before exiting the game, Foles was 5/8 passing for 75 yards and a touchdown. His first few throws were forgettable checkdowns, but his second drive featured a nice play when he shrugged off a Chris Jones sack and converted a 3rd and 18 with an accurate pass over the middle to Chris Conley. He capped the drive off with a beautiful 35-yard touchdown in the corner of the end zone to Chark, but that would be the same play that would end up sidelining him for the foreseeable future.
