Nick Foles, QB St. Louis Rams

Rankings

Notes: Foles’ second season as the starter in Philadelphia didn’t go as well as his first. After a ridiculous 27-to-2 touchdown-to-interception ratio in 2013, Foles tossed 13 touchdowns against 10 picks last year. It wasn’t all his fault, however, as he was playing behind a patchwork offensive line and didn’t seem as comfortable in the pocket. In the seven games that he finished in 2014, he averaged 16.9 fantasy points, which is about what Philip Rivers scored as the #12 QB on the season. Foles ultimately broke his collarbone in Week 9 and missed the final eight games of the season. Now he joins a run-oriented Rams’ offense that is somewhat lacking in talent at receiver.

Rams WR Brian Quick (shoulder) 'running routes against air'

Friday, June 5, 2015, 5:25pm

St. Louis Rams - [Full Article]

Rams HC Jeff Fisher gave an update on wideout Brian Quick, whose suffered a season-ending shoulder injury against Kansas City in 2014.

Brian Quick is probably the one we have to watch,” Fisher said. “We’ll have to watch him, keep him out of contact, but he’s running routes against air. He’s catching and progressing nicely.”

Fantasy Impact:

Quick was posting solid WR3 numbers in both standard and PPR formats before his injury in Week 8. He's currently the 50th WR off the board at the end of the 10th round. The arrival of Nick Foles should be good for his prospects in 2015.

Scouting Report

Week 9 - Foles vs. Houston
Nick Foles attempted an Eagles record 62 passes last week, completing 36 of them for 411 yards and two TDs. He did add two more interceptions to his total and now has nine on the year to 12 TD passes.

If turnovers don't count against your fantasy totals, Foles is producing enough for you to roll with week-to-week. But even if the turnovers don't count, he's at the very least costing you plays and drives that could turn into TDs. As a result, Foles comes in ninth again this week on our QB list. It's a tough matchup against the Texans, who rank 11th in allowing fantasy points to QBs. The potential is always there for Foles and the Eagles offense, but we keep waiting for the break out game.
