QB Nick Foles - Solid/Safe Pick
The Eagles have one of the better fantasy schedules for QBs (Weeks 1-16), with just three games against defenses that defended the pass well (SF - Week 4, CAR - Week 10, SEA - Week 14) and six favorable matchups. As an added bonus, the Eagles boast one of the best O-lines in the league with an elite left side of Pro Bowlers (Jason Peters and Evan Mathis). In his second NFL season, Foles had a major breakout year, finishing with a 27:2 TD-to-INT ratio in 10 starts. Don't pay for the 2013 production, as he averaged a mediocre 222 YPG and will have to deal with the loss of big-play WR DeSean Jackson (additions of Sproles and rookie Jordan Matthews could fill the void). Foles' current ADP (63.16) has him sitting at QB7, but he could be due for some regression in 2014 as the INT rate is sure to go up.
QB Mark Sanchez - Not Draft Worthy
The King of the Butt Fumble needed a change of scenery. He signed a one-year, $2.25 million contract to compete with Matt Barkley for the backup job in Philly. Sanchez should easily end the preseason as the Eagles' No. 2 QB. The former USC QB suffered a shoulder injury that kept him sidelined in 2013. The best of his prior four seasons was in 2011 when Sanchez averaged 217 YPG, with 26 TDs and 18 INTs.
