Philadelphia Eagles rookie quarterback Nick Foles will get his first career start in Week 11. On Sunday, Foles will face off against their NFC East rival, the Washington Redskins. With Michael Vick sustaining a concussion last week, the team is left to proceed with an inexperienced passer.
In a sloppy NFC East division, the postseason is not lost. This game means an awful lot to both teams involved, so there will be no holding back.
Fantasy Analysis: Foles has quite the challenge in front of him, but luckily he is not alone. The Eagles have a great corps of weapons that include Desean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin, Brent Celek and LeSean McCoy. If Foles can let his playmakers do the work, he could actually rack up some fantasy points.
Hopefully for Foles, the Eagles staff will simplify things for him. If Philly is running screens and quick timing routes, Foles could benefit and quickly become a sleeper. The one setback for the young passer is the team's shaky offensive line. Don't feel the need to acquire him now, but keep an eye on Foles, as Vick's status for the rest of the season remains uncertain.
