Chicago Bears
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Once the Bears acquired Andy Dalton in free agency and later added Justin Fields in the draft, Foles fell to third on the Bears' depth chart at quarterback. As a result, Foles' path to playing time would require a number of things to occur, but even if that happens his fantasy upside is very limited. In nine appearances for Chicago in 2020, he averaged 205.8 yards per game while throwing 10 touchdowns versus eight interceptions. Read Past Outlooks

Foles signed a big contract to lead the Jaguars last season, but a broken clavicle in the season opener and the emergence of Gardner Minshew combined to curb his opportunities, and he endured a miserable year. To cite but one stat, in his four starts he totaled just two completions on attempts longer than 20 yards. The Jaguars traded him to the Bears this offseason for a fourth-round pick, which is probably the best thing that could have happened to him and why he was agreeable to restructuring his contract (he'll still make $21 million guaranteed the next three seasons). After Trubisky won the job to start the season, the leash figures to be short. Trubisky's arm strength and mobility are superior, but Foles has veteran experience to fall back on and better decision-making skills. Either way, both QBs might have trouble surviving a poor offensive line, and Allen Robinson is really the only difference-maker to target in the passing game.
Whether you think of him as a Super Bowl MVP or merely the best backup quarterback in the league, Foles can take comfort in his permanent hero status in the City of Brotherly Love. His excellent work in limited action the past two years also paid off financially, persuading the Jaguars to give him a four-year, $88 million contract with $45.1 million guaranteed. Foles won four of his five starts for the Eagles last season, completing 72.3 percent of his passes for 7.2 YPA. Granted, his sterling completion percentage was mostly the result of not throwing the ball downfield. Foles' average depth of target was 6.9 yards, last among 36 quarterbacks with at least 175 attempts and one spot lower than former Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles (7.0). Foles attempted passes longer than 20 yards on just 7.7 percent of his throws, completing seven of 15. He might not be asked to do much more in Jacksonville. The Jaguars lack playmakers, though Dede Westbrook had some moments last season and fellow wide receiver Marqise Lee should eventually return from a torn ACL. The Jaguars still figure to be a run-first team, relying on Leonard Fournette and a talented defense. Foles might be a good match for the game-manager role, but it's not a good match for fantasy production.
Foles' run to Super Bowl MVP last season was the stuff of Hollywood. Foles, who considered retirement after a season with Jeff Fisher's Rams in 2015, took over last year when Carson Wentz went down in Week 14 with a season-ending ACL tear. Nothing in his three regular-season starts foreshadowed what was coming, as he completed just 54 percent of his passes at 5.1 YPA - he didn't complete a single pass beyond 20 yards, attempting only nine. But it turns out the rusty Foles was just using those starts as a tuneup for the playoffs. He dominated the postseason, completing 72.6 percent of his attempts for 9.1 YPA, six touchdowns and one interception. What's more, he completed 46.1 percent of his 13 downfield throws for 17.5 YPA. He returned to the Eagles this season to once again be the backup. Wentz, though, might not be ready for Week 1 because of his knee. He did not take part in team drills at OTAs and is expected to be limited in training camp. Foles could get some early season snaps if Wentz, who also tore his LCL and suffered other structural damage, is on the late side of the usual recovery window (8-10 months).
In the offseason, Foles returned to the team that drafted him in 2012 and with which he has had his greatest success as a pro. However, he spent last season as Alex Smith's backup in Kansas City and attempted just 55 passes, completing 36 with three touchdowns and one interception. Now, Foles will serve as the primary reserve to Carson Wentz, with Matt McGloin rounding out the depth chart. Barring an injury to Wentz, Foles should not hold much relevance in 2017.
A year removed from the Rams swapping Sam Bradford for Foles, the Rams decided to trade up for the first pick in the 2016 NFL Draft to select quarterback Jared Goff. Foles wound up starting just 11 games for the Rams, posting a horrid seven touchdowns to 10 interceptions over that span. With Goff and Keenum ahead of him on the depth chart, the Rams decided to release Foles. He then inked a deal with the Kansas City Chiefs and has been put in a decent position as the team's top backup quarterback under Andy Reid (who drafted him). However, he's unlikely to see significant playing time unless Alex Smith should suffer an injury.
Following one of the most efficient seasons in NFL history in 2013 (9.12 YPA, 27:2 TD:INT ratio), Foles unsurprisingly regressed last season, though the drop-off was more severe than anticipated. He threw at least one interception in seven of eight games and saw his YPA tumble to 26th in the league, before suffering a season-ending broken collarbone in Week 9. His touchdown percentage was cut in half (4.2 vs. 8.5) and his interception percentage rose more than five times (3.2, 0.6) compared to 2013. The Eagles traded him to the Rams in March, causing his fantasy stock to plummet as he goes from Chip Kelly's fast-paced offense to one that hasn't finished higher than 23rd in total yards since 2006. His primary targets are Kenny Britt, Brian Quick and Jared Cook, a far cry from what he had in Philadelphia. Foles throws a great deep ball with above-average arm strength — 20 completions of 40-plus yards in just 18 starts the last two years — but now he has to prove he can do it without elite deep threats like DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin. Tavon Austin, who did not catch a touchdown pass last season, is the only burner in St. Louis. The Rams likely will rely on their defense and ground game, heavily utilizing the promising Tre Mason, and when he's healthy, first-round pick Todd Gurley.
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.
