QB trade: Jacksonville is trading QB Nick Foles to Chicago for the Bears’ compensatory fourth-round pick, sources tell ESPN.
Bears’ coaches such as Matt Nagy have worked with Foles in past and know him well.
Some veteran competition for Mitchell Trubisky is a good thing and now Nick Foles will attempt to snag another starting role. He only played in four games last season for the Jaguars due to an injury to his collarbone, but is a competent passer who should probably be a starter in the league, though he adds nothing as a runner so his ceiling will be limited in Chicago. The trade is good news for the Chicago pass-catchers, especially Allen Robinson.
JAX QB Nick Foles - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 13 vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
After an unproductive first half and then with his team behind by multiple scores in the second half, Nick Foles threw for 272 yards and ran for 20 additional yards in the loss at Tennessee last week. In the two games since his return, both losses, he’s put the ball up 95 times and is averaging 284 yards through the air. Back at home on Sunday versus the league’s second-worst pass defense expect another solid game from Foles. He’s a low QB1 play.
