Are you tired of hearing people call him "Foles Gold" lately? Of course, but his fantasy owners probably aren't tired of the eye-popping numbers he's put up in the past couple weeks.
Two weeks ago he had a game for the ages against the Oakland Raiders. Foles threw seven scores and posted the first perfect 158.3 passer rating of the season. He obviously had no where to go but down last week against the Green Bay Packers, but actually wasn't too disappointing. Foles had a sterling 149.8 passer rating thanks to 228 yards and three scores on 12-of-18 passing.
He gets his third favorable matchup this week against the Washington Redskins. The Skins rank in the bottom 10 in just about every major defensive passing category and their safeties have been biting on pump fakes and play action all season. Since Foles lives on the deep ball, it's a deadly combo.
Fantasy impact: There's little reason to think that Foles will slow down. He's in the great offense and has quickly gotten on the same page with receivers DeSean Jackson and Riley Cooper. He serves as a high-upside QB1 and there are only a handful of better players to start this week.
