Nick Foles' Instant Fantasy Reaction After Week 6
Taking over for the injured Michael Vick, quarterback Nick Foles is turning some fantasy heads while leading the Philadelphia Eagles.
Foles led the Eagles to a 31-20 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He went 22-of-31 for 296 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions. He also ran for another score.
That all went down against a decent pass defense of Tampa Bay. The Bucs entered the week ranked 15th in the NFL by allowing 238 passing yards per game. They had also allowed just five touchdown passes heading into this week.
Foles has clearly answered the question of whether or not he can run Chip Kelly's fast-paced offense, which usually features a mobile quarterback.
It is now time to start speculating when Foles will become the full-time starter in Philadelphia, and it is something fantasy owners should keep an eye on.
Take a look at the Eagles' remaining schedule:
|Week||Opponent||Defensive Pass Rank|
|8||New York Giants||20|
|10||Green Bay Packers||26|
Obviously, Foles' standing on the depth chart will need to be monitored. Vick was idle with a hamstring injury, and he will likely be ready to return to action soon.
However, if Foles is named the starter, he not only is deserving of a roster spot, but he should also warrant starting consideration. DeSean Jackson has been great in 2013, and the Eagles have a strong supporting run game led by LeSean McCoy.
There are fantasy points to be had in Philadalphia, and Foles and his owners could be the beneficiaries.
