NJ.com - [Full Article]

Eagles QB Nick Foles has turned the ball over nine times (he's fumbled four times and lost two) in six games this season. While the Eagles are still 5-1, despite the mistakes, head coach Chip Kelly expressed concern after Sunday night's 27-0 win over the Giants.

"If we keep winning, no,it doesn't matter,'' Kelly began. "But if it hurts us, then, yeah (I'm concerned). We still have to do a better job from that standpoint. We were a lot cleaner last year from a turnover standpoint, and he'll be the first to tell you that.''

Foles threw two interceptions, Sunday, that in a closer game could have been costly. He also fumbled, but rookie wide receiver Josh Huff recovered.

Fantasy Impact: 

Foles was playing pretty well and hitting receivers on target for the most part Sunday night against the Giants, but didn't see a lot of pressure. His two INTs were just bad decisions. There has been a lot of talk about his footwork when throwing the ball behind a shaky offensive line, however the Eagles feel that can be corrected. He's not always going to have a perfect pocket while dropping back, though. Foles' job is safe for now, but it's clearly an area that needs to improve.
