Since Napoleon Dynamite’s twin brother Nick Foles may be the new starter for the Eagles, I wanted to review what that would mean for the fantasy production of some of the Eagle’s key players.
In his first full start against the Redskins, Foles completed 21 passes out of 46 attempts and threw two interceptions. De’Sean Jackson hauled in only two catches for five yards in this game, and in his second start, Jackson saw similar numbers with 1 catch for 9 yards. Jackson suffered an injury which finished his season, but he still did not have the best chemistry with Foles. While a five yard touchdown pass may have helped things this past Sunday, I would still be weary of playing Jackson until we can further see how this team will gel under Foles.
Shady McCoy was a favorite option of Foles when he was in trouble, so he should continue to see success in the passing game. While the receiver production may be a little haltered, not much will change for McCoy. He is still a must start in any format, and he may even see an increase in targets if the Eagles struggle.
