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.
Colts QB Nick Foles is questionable to return to Sunday's game vs. the Giants with a rib injury. He was in a lot of pain and had to be carted back to the locker room. We'll update his status when we know more. With QB Matt Ryan inactive, QB Sam Ehlinger will replace Foles.
Update: Foles has been ruled out.
The switch to QB Nick Foles did not work Monday night against the Chargers. The veteran backup tossed 3 INTs and took 7 sacks in the loss, compiling only 143 yards on 17-of-29 passing. TE Jelani Woods led the receiving with 43 yards, while WR Michael Pittman Jr. was the only Colt to catch more than 3 passes. Interim HC Jeff Saturday still said after the game that he has "no reservations" about switching to Foles and that he still plans to start the vet for the final 2 games.
Colts HC Jeff Saturday announced on Wednesday that the team will start QB Nick Foles in Week 16 vs. the Chargers. ESPN's Dan Graziano also reports the plan is for the team to bench Matt Ryan for the remainder of the 2022 season. Fantasy managers can consider Foles a fringe QB2 option this week, though better options are likely available. The Chargers rank as the 13th-toughest matchup in adjusted fantasy points allowed to QBs. Going from Ryan to Foles is essentially a lateral move fantasy-wise.
The Colts have agreed to a 2-year deal with QB Nick Foles, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. Foles most recently played for the Bears but previously played under then-OC Frank Reich with the Super Bowl-winning Eagles. His Indianapolis role under HC Reich will obviously be to back up new Colts QB Matt Ryan.
