Eagles QB Nick Foles has gotten fast.

OK, not fast.

But faster. Definitely a lot faster. And – more importantly – he’s become an effective situational runner, which is crucial in Chip Kelly’s offense.

Maybe the biggest surprise of all has been the way Nick Foles has helped himself as a ball carrier.

He’s slow. But he keeps making plays with his feet.

Is he deceptively fast?

“I’d say deceptively crafty,” Foles said. “That’d be more like it.”

Fantasy Impact: 

Foles' time at the combine was 5.14, slower than offensive linemen. But he's actually looked much better in that department this year in his time on the field. Foles won't win a lot of foot races but knows when to take off. He has a rushing TD against Tampa and last week took off 8 times for 38 yards last week. In his last three games he has 14 rushes for 77 yards.
