The decision to bench Ryan comes after Indianapolis blew a 33-0 lead against the Minnesota Vikings on Saturday, a record-setting loss. Foles will be the third QB to start for Indy this season. Foles saw action in the preseason this year but last threw a pass in a game in Week 16 of 2021 with the Bears.
IND QB Nick Foles - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 16 vs. Los Angeles Chargers
Nick Foles will get the start this week against the Chargers. He last started for the Bears in 2021, tossing 250 yards and a touchdown. Foles has been able to put up numbers in the past, but it’s hard to know how he’ll look in this offense, which has struggled all year, is missing Jonathan Taylor, and faces a surging Chargers defense that’s playing better the last two weeks than their 14th-ranked aFPA standing suggests. Consider Foles a risky QB2 option at best.
