Bears HC Matt Nagy on Monday delivered the announcement we all expected. QB Nick Foles will start Sunday's game against the Colts. Foles, of course, came on and engineered a comeback win at Atlanta after the Bears yanked Mitchell Trubisky. Foles completed 16 of 29 passes for 188 yards, 3 TDs and 1 INT. That's not a stellar outing against a bad Falcons defense, but Foles should offer a bit more stability than Trubisky. He falls short of Trubisky, however, in fantasy upside without the rushing threat. Foles is only a waiver option for 2-QB and superflex fantasy football leagues, especially against an Indy defense that ranks among the league's best pass rushes. Nagy added that it's Foles' job going forward, rather than a week-to-week evaluation. We'll see what happens if/when Foles falters.

Bears HC Matt Nagy said Monday that he'll announce the team's starting QB sometime between Monday and Wednesday next week, ahead of the regular-season opener. Nagy had previously intimated he wouldn't name a starter ahead of game day but called Monday's news a clarification. Camp reports haven't had either Nick Foles or Mitchell Trubisky taking a noticeable lead in the competition. Neither would make for all that interesting a fantasy option, though Trubisky at least sports rushing upside.

The Jaguars have traded QB Nick Foles to the Bears in exchange for a compensatory 4th-round pick, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Foles notably spent 2012 with Bears HC Matt Nagy in Philadelphia and 2016 with him in Kansas City, so there's some familiarity there. Still, we imagine that this will be an open competition for the starting job this summer between Foles and Mitchell Trubisky. Neither guy is an exciting target in early best-ball drafts. In Jacksonville, meanwhile, QB Gardner Minshew is left atop the depth chart for now.

The Jaguars are set to hire Jay Gruden as their new OC, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Gruden is coming off a failed stint as Washington's HC but did help the Redskins to top-17 finishes in total yards in each of his first 4 seasons, including a 3rd-place finish in 2016. Prior to that, Gruden spent 3 years as Cincinnati's OC. Those teams ranked 20th, 22nd and 10th in total yards. The big question in Jacksonville this offseason is what will happen at QB between Nick Foles, Gardner Minshew and potentially a rookie or free-agent addition.

Jaguars QB Nick Foles was benched at halftime of Sunday's game against the Bucs. He completed just 7 of 14 passes for 93 yards, 0 TDs and 1 INT in the game's first 30 minutes. Foles also lost 2 fumbles. QB Gardner Minshew will finish out the game for the Jags. We'll see who they go with for Week 14 and beyond.
