Description: Eagles quarterback Nick Foles completed 8-of-10 passes for 81 yards and a TD in Friday's preseason game.
Insight: He threw two picks in the first preseason game but rebounded nicely. His ADP dropped from the early sixth round to the early seventh over the past two weeks, but it's on the rise again.
 
8/8/2014 9:10:00 PM
Description: Eagles quarterback Nick Foles threw two interceptions and went 6-of-9 for 44 yards in Friday's preseason opener.
Insight: Foles threw that many picks on 317 throws last season. The Eagles have been trying to get Foles to get rid of the ball more quickly than last season to avoid sacks and he reportedly hasn't looked great in training camp yet. He'll also have to overcome the loss of DeSean Jackson this season, so he comes with some risk at his sixth-round ADP, but Chip Kelly's offense gives him top-five upside.
 
Hot12/15/2013 5:59:00 PM
Description: Eagles quarterback Nick Foles continued to put up huge fantasy numbers in Week 15 at Minnesota.
Insight: Foles managed to generate 19 fantasy points despite playing in a blizzard last week and he had a field day in the Metrodome Sunday. Foles threw for 428 yards and three touchdowns with one pick and rushed for 41 yards.
 
Hot12/2/2013 2:18:00 PM
Description: Ciach Chip Kelly said that Philadelphia QB Nick Foles is his long-term starting quarterback, not just the starter next week.
Insight: Foles has 19 touchdown passes without an interception this season and has proven to be a top-10 fantasy QB heading into Week 14 against the Lions. Why wouldn't he be the team's future?
 
Hot12/1/2013 5:36:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia QB Nick Foles shredded the Cardinals for 237 yards and three touchdowns Sunday afternoon.
Insight: Foles threw his first interception of the season but it was overturned by a defensive holding penalty. He now has 19 touchdowns without an interception this season and has proven to be a top-10 fantasy QB heading into Week 14 against the Lions.
 
Hot11/26/2013 5:29:00 PM
Description: According to Reuben Frank of csnphilly.com, Eagles coach Chip Kelly said Nick Foles will be the team's starting quarterback the rest of the season.
Insight: Kelly said Foles won't have to look over his shoulder if he has a bad game now that Michael Vick is healthy. Foles has completed 63.6 percent of his passes for 1,554 yards, 16 touchdowns and zero interceptions this season. However, he has a brutal matchup in Week 13 against Arizona.
 
Hot11/11/2013 2:24:00 PM
Description: Not that there was any doubt, but Eagles quarterback Nick Foles will start in Week 11 against Washington.
Insight: Michael Vick probably still won't be healthy, but it won't matter if Foles keeps playing at his current production level. He's now thrown 16 TD passes without being intercepted this season.
 
11/3/2013 7:30:00 PM
Description: Eagles quarterback Nick Foles tied the NFL record with seven passing touchdowns Sunday against the Raiders. He also completed 22-of-28 passes for 406 yards.
Insight: This one came out of nowhere. Foles missed Week 8 with a concussion after looking extremely skittish in Week 7, so he likely wasn't started by many fantasy owners in a hostile environment at Oakland. Foles likely will hold onto the Eagles starting job for the rest of the season after this performance.
 
10/30/2013 11:29:00 AM
Description: Eagles coach Chip Kelly says that Nick Foles will start at quarterback Sunday against the Raiders.
Insight: Foles, who missed last week's game because of a concussion, is filling in for the injured Mike Vick (hamstring). He could be a nice bye week fill-in for owners of Peyton Manning, Matthew Stafford and Colin Kaepernick.
 
10/29/2013 1:55:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia quarterback Nick Foles (concussion) said he's ready to suit up for Week 9.
Insight: Given the healthy status of Michael Vick and the performance of third-string Matt Barkley, fantasy owners have to be happy with this news. Hopefully his self-diagnosis is accurate.
 
10/21/2013 2:25:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia quarterback Nick Foles was diagnosed with a concussion and will have to follow the NFL protocol before being allowed back on the field.
Insight: Given the performance of Foles and third-stringer Matt Barkley, Michael Vick (hamstring) will likely be the favorite to start in Week 8 even if he's not 100 percent healthy.
 
10/20/2013 5:57:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia quarterback Nick Foles was a disaster Sunday against Dallas, throwing for 80 yards on 11-of-29 passing before leaving with a head injury.
Insight: Matt Barkley came on and completed 11-of-20 for 129 yards and three interceptions. It looks like Michael Vick will be getting his job back as soon as he is healthy.
 
10/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia quarterback Nick Foles is out of the game in the fourth quarter after taking a big hit.
Insight: Foles had done very little, so this is just the icing on the cake. Matt Barkley will finish out the game if Foles can't return.
 
10/15/2013 11:52:00 AM
Description: Philadelphia backup quarterback Nick Foles is taking reps with the first team on Tuesday, according to Eagles beat reporter Geoff Mosher.
Insight: Although the team hasn't named a starter for Week 7 versus Dallas their early week actions indicate that Foles will get the nod. Things could still change later in the week if Vick shows he's 100 percent healthy.
 
10/7/2013 2:50:00 PM
Description: Eagles backup quarterback Nick Foles is expected to start the Week 6 contest in Tampa Bay, according to Adam Schefter.
Insight: Starter Michael Vick suffered a right hamstring injury in the first half of the game with the Giants.
 
10/6/2013 5:33:00 PM
Description: Eagles backup quarterback Nick Foles threw for 197 yards and two touchdowns in relief of Michael Vick (hamstring) Sunday against the Giants.
Insight: Vick suffered a right hamstring injury in the first half. Foles was actually more effective through the air, completing 16-of-25 compared to 6-of-14 for Vick. The Eagles play next week at Tampa Bay, where Foles picked up his lone career victory with 381 yards and three touchdowns last season. However, he's not a recommended play next week if he has to start; Tampa Bay upgraded it's pass defense with the acquisitions of Darrelle Revis and Dashon Goldson this offseason.
 
10/6/2013 2:55:00 PM
Description: Eagles backup quarterback Nick Foles is starting the second half against the Giants.
Insight: Vick pulled a right hamstring and Foles finished the first half. Apparently the injury didn't get better in the locker room.
 
2/14/2013 8:16:00 PM
Description: USA Today reports that the Chiefs are looking into acquiring Eagles quarterback Nick Foles.
Insight: Now that Michael Vick, a perfect fit for Chip Kelly's new run-oriented attack, has re-signed with the Eagles, it doesn't look like Foles will have a chance to start in 2013. Andy Reid coached Foles in Philadelphia so playing for him again in Kansas City wouldn't be a difficult transition. If the Chiefs are able to trade for Foles (six TD, five INT last season), they would likely release incumbent starter Matt Cassel (six TD, 12 INT).
 
1/16/2013 12:20:00 PM
Description: The signing of Chip Kelly as the new head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles may not be good news for fantasy owners who were planning on keeping quarterback Nick Foles on their dynasty rosters.
Insight: Foles had a nice season as the replacement for injured Michael Vick, but at 6'5" and 245 lbs he is not the type of quarterback Kelly has utilized in his wide open Oregon offenses.
 
12/24/2012 1:40:00 PM
Description: Eagles rookie quarterback Nick Foles had his second career 300-yard passing game Sunday versus Washington, but it will be his last of the season as he suffered a broken hand.
Insight: Foles had thrown for over 300 yards in two of the last three games, but wasn't in the class of the other more well-known rookie starting QBs - Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III or Russell Wilson. Still he showed plenty of potential if the Eagles can straighten out their offensive line.
