GM Howie Roseman said that the team has “a lot of confidence” in Carson Wentz and his ability to be the team’s long-term starter despite the injuries that have cost him time over the last two years. As a result, HC Doug Pederson said that Wentz is the quarterback “going forward” but both men made it clear that they aren’t shutting the door on having Nick Foles back.
“We would love to keep Nick Foles. You talk about a guy we’ve drafted here and grown incredibly close with. Certainly, as we go into the substance of those discussions, no question … we’d love to keep him,” Roseman said, via WIP
The story said keeping Foles would likely take a franchise tag. Foles can buy out the final year of his contract when and if the Eagles pick up their 2019 option. That’s a pricey road to go down even if Foles has proven his value to the team over the last couple of years, so there’s a lot that still has to play out.

Week 14 at Dallas Cowboys
The Eagles head to Dallas for a pivotal division match-up. Philadelphia has an implied team total of just 20.25 points, in the bottom third for Week 14 against a strong Cowboys defense. Dallas ranks around league average in aFPA to QBs. Carson Wentz is averaging 18.7 fantasy points in his last three games against Dallas, but anything under 19 makes it tough to reach QB1 status with this season's inflated statistics at the position. Wentz should post decent numbers but not approach elite production due to game pace and the implied team total.
