26-Year-Old Quarterback – St. Louis Rams
2015 Fantasy Football Outlook
Following one of the most efficient seasons in NFL history in 2013 (9.12 YPA, 27:2 TD:INT ratio), Foles expectedly regressed last season, though the drop-off was more severe than anticipated. He threw...
Nick Foles Contract Information:

Frank Cignetti, the Rams' new offensive coordinator, has been impressed with Foles' work this offseason, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. "Nick Foles, first off, is an unbelievable person," Cignetti said. "High character. Great leadership. He does a great job in the classroom, great in the locker room.

Nick Foles: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)The Eagles have been heavily linked to Marcus Mariota, and it was revealed Sunday that Mark Sanchez reached a two-year agreement to remain in Philadelphia. Sanchez got a very favorable contract for a backup quarterback, indicating that he's an important part of the organization's plans. That strongly points to a situation involving a young signal-caller, in which case Foles would likely be traded to a new team.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Foles added that he would have been able to play had the Eagles made the playoffs, suggesting he isn't greatly bothered by any lingering effects. The three-year veteran should effectively be ready to perform at the start of training camp, though he's set to be a free agent in 2016, and has been the subject of many offseason trade rumors. Until further notice, the 26-year-old is the Eagles' projected starter for 2015, and if he can hang on to the job, there's plenty of fantasy potential to be had in this fast-paced offense.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)With the Eagles out of playoff contention, Foles' 2014 season is over, with Mark Sanchez set to remain the team's starter at QB in Week 17. Foles now has plenty of time to recover from his latest injury, with the expectation being that he'll head into training camp next season healthy and atop the Eagles' QB depth chart.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)With Foles' collarbone not yet fully healed at this stage, he won't gain clearance to play in Week 16, which sets the stage for Mark Sanchez to remain the Eagles' starter at QB for Saturday's game, at a minimum.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)While Foles is progressing in his recovery, there's still no concrete timetable for the quarterback's potential return to action at this stage. "He'll have other exams until he eventually gets cleared," Kelly noted Monday. "The bone hasn't healed yet." In the meantime, Mark Sanchez will continue to helm the Eagles' offense, and while a late-season return for Foles can't be ruled out, whether he has a chance to reclaim his starting assignment in such a scenario presumably hinges on the effectiveness and health of Sanchez at that point in time.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)The procedure will reveal the current level of health surrounding Foles' healing collarbone. With each passing day, the tenderness in the region is subsiding, and strength increasing, but his recovery timetable is unlikely to change from the previously known 6-to-8 week range.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Fans of Chip Kelly had long told tall tales of his supposedly incomparable innovation as a coach, making him sound like something of a touchdown wizard who could take almost any offense and turn it into one of the best in the league. They were pretty much correct. Even Kelly's most ardent supporters couldn't have foreseen the absurd efficiency of the 2013 Philadelphia passing game, particularly on the part of Foles. One year after throwing for 566 yards (6.4 YPA), three touchdowns and three interceptions as a rookie third-round pick, there wasn't much reason to think Foles would do much when he stepped in for an injured Michael Vick in Week 5. Foles couldn't have been much better, though, throwing just two interceptions in 317 attempts and finishing with a with a spectacular touchdown percentage of 8.5. Despite his reputation as a slower quarterback, he even managed to run for 221 yards and three touchdowns. Although his 2013 numbers probably aren't sustainable, they're impressive to the point that it seems safe to expect more elite production in 2014. The loss of lead receiver DeSean Jackson is softened by the return of Jeremy Maclin from injury and the addition of second-round pick Jordan Matthews, both of whom project as better red-zone threats than Jackson was.
Foles will serve as Michael Vick's top backup and is an injury away from seeing starts in coach Chip Kelly's offense.
A third-round pick out of Arizona, Foles will almost certainly make the Philadelphia roster as the team's third quarterback, but he's unlikely to make a push for the top backup role.
