Nick Foles struggles in the snow, still provides solid fantasy production

US PRESSWIRE

The Eagles quarterback didn't have his best performance Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles couldn't accomplish much in the snow against the Detroit Lions. Foles finished the day completing 11 of his 22 pass attempts for 173 yards, one touchdown and a rare interception. He also ran the ball six times for 23 yards and another touchdown. He fumbled the ball once but didn't lose it. Neither him nor Matthew Stafford were particularly effective throwing the ball with the snow playing a large factor.

Fantasy owners also had to adjust to the new stat from Foles, an interception. In nine games this season, Foles had managed to not throw a single pick until this game. He is now the owner of a 20:1 touchdown-to-interception ratio and fantasy owners don't have anything to complain about in that aspect.

Fantasy Impact: Even in this contest that provided Foles with the adverse weather conditions, he still managed to provide fantasy owners with solid production. His rushing touchdown also provided standard leagues owners with an additional two points. Owners should be salivating over his dream match up next week in the Minnesota Vikings who give up the most fantasy points to quarterbacks. Foles will be a strong QB1 play in Week 15.
