Nick Foles completed 15-of-35 passes for 146 yards and an interception in St. Louis' 27-3, Week 13 loss to the Cardinals.
Foles was amazingly ineffective in this one, failing to make a single positive play. It was announced afterwards that he's been re-benched for Case Keenum. Foles' extension is shaping up as a(nother) massive mistake for Jeff Fisher's pathetic Rams team. Sun, Dec 6, 2015 04:41:00 PM

Nick Foles will remain the Rams' starter for Week 13.

Case Keenum remains in the league's concussion protocol, and will be the No. 2 even if he's active. Devoid of weapons behind a nightmarishly bad offensive line, an extremely limited Foles isn't worth firing up even as the most contrarian of contrarian plays in DFS leagues. He'll have no shot against the Cardinals.

Nick Foles completed 30-of-46 passes for 228 yards with three interceptions and rushed once for two yards in the Rams' Week 12 loss to the Bengals.

And people wonder why the Rams benched Foles for Case Keenum last week. Foles ran the St. Louis offense into the ground with another dismal performance on Sunday. His arm strength and poise were nonexistent while his decision-making was puzzling to say the least. His first interception came off a deflection by George Iloka late in the second quarter. Jared Cook had no chance of making the catch in tight coverage. Foles followed that up with an off-balance pass to Bradley Marquez that Leon Hall took back for an easy pick-six. After digging a 24-point hole for the Rams, Foles spent most of the fourth quarter watching while rookie Sean Mannion got his first reps of the season. Assuming Case Keenum (concussion) is cleared to play next week against the Cardinals, Foles should be headed back to the bench.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter confirms Nick Foles is expected to start Sunday.

Case Keenum practiced on a limited basis, but isn’t going to be cleared from the concussion protocol. The Rams will turn back to Foles one week after benching him. Foles is averaging 186 YPG with a 7:6 TD/INT ratio in nine starts. The Bengals defense is a top-12 option this week.

Coach Jeff Fisher said Friday that the Rams are planning to start Nick Foles in Week 12 against the Bengals.

Case Keenum has yet to clear concussion protocol. Fisher said Keenum would remain the Rams' starter if healthy, but he's not there yet. Foles was benched before Week 11 for failing to pull the trigger when receivers were open, and missing them when he did. The Bengals' D/ST is a recommended streamer.

ESPN's Field Yates reports the Rams still owe benched QB Nick Foles $7.75 million guaranteed.

Foles' $6 million roster bonus for 2016 became fully guaranteed on August 15, and his $1.75 million base salary for 2016 is guaranteed for injury now and becomes fully guaranteed on the fifth day of the new league year. The roster bonus contains no offset language, meaning the Rams will have to pay the full amount even if they cut Foles this offseason. Unless they find a trade partner, Foles will likely be in St. Louis for at least one more season.

The Rams have benched Nick Foles for Case Keenum.

Foles was holding St. Louis' offense back with his inability to hit open receivers and generate any semblance of a consistent passing game. He was held to 200 passing yards or fewer in eight straight games before Monday's benching. Foles is due a $6 million roster bonus next March, and it's fully guaranteed as part of a two-year extension the Rams regrettably gave him in early August. Look for St. Louis to dangle Foles on the trade market this spring, seeking whatever they can get. They'd be truly lucky to find a taker.

Rams coach Jeff Fisher said he is not considering a quarterback change.

Nick Foles may be the worst starting quarterback in the NFL, but the prospects of starting Case Keenum or rookie Sean Mannion likely makes Fisher wake up in a cold sweat. If the Rams are going to win this season, it will be on the back of Todd Gurley and a dominating defense. Replacing Foles does not change that equation.

Nick Foles completed just 17-of-36 passes for 200 yards and an interception in the Rams' 37-13, Week 10 loss to the Bears.

Find us a worse starting quarterback in the league, we dare you. Foles was embarrassingly awful Sunday and has been for much of the season. Except on Sunday, the Rams' defense and Todd Gurley weren't enough to cover up the black hole that is Foles. He missed several throws that should be easy for an NFL starter. And there were too many to count. The 200 yards passing was Foles' most since Week 1, and he had garbage time to do it for much of the second half. The Rams are 7-for-50 on third down the past four games. It's time to start wondering if Foles will be the quarterback for the Rams next season. With this regime, he'll likely get another extension before walking papers. The Rams travel to Baltimore in Week 11. Foles isn't even sniffing the fantasy radar.

Nick Foles completed just 18-of-33 passes for 168 yards in the Rams' Week 9 loss to the Vikings.

Foles again was what held the Rams back from moving to 5-3. Todd Gurley tried to put the offense on his back with 109 total yards and one touchdown, but it wasn't enough this time. Foles missed several throws, especially in the fourth quarter and overtime, but was also hurt by a dropped pass on a potential big play from Tavon Austin. Somehow, in today's NFL, Foles has failed to throw for 200 yards in seven-straight games. After eight games, he's on pace to complete 256-of-440 passes (58.2 percent) for 2,956 yards (6.72 YPA), 14 TDs, and 10 INTs. Horrific numbers for a 16-game starter. Foles is a bottom-three fantasy quarterback weekly and will remain that way, even in a home date with the Bears in Week 10.

Nick Foles completed 14-of-23 passes for 191 yards and one touchdown in the Rams' Week 8 win over the 49ers.

Foles hasn't topped 200 yards passing since Week 1 and remains one of the bottom-five fantasy quarterbacks. But the Rams receivers did him no help early Sunday. Kenny Britt dropped a pair of long balls that could have gone for serious yards, while Tavon Austin also couldn't reel in a deep ball. Austin redeemed himself later, taking a screen pass 66 yards to the house to seal the win. Foles will be a low-end QB2 with minimal upside Week 9 at Minnesota.
Sun, Nov 1, 2015 06:04:00 PM

Nick Foles completed 16-of-23 passes for 163 yards, zero touchdowns, and zero interceptions in the Rams' Week 7 win over the Browns.

With Todd Gurley taking over as the foundation of the Rams' offense, Foles simply just has to take care of the football and make a couple plays. He did that by not fumbling or throwing a pick Sunday and hooking up with Kenny Britt (41 yards), Gurley (24), and Tavon Austin (20) for long pass plays. Foles is a middle-of-the-pack QB2. The Rams host the division-rival 49ers in Week 8.

Nick Foles completed 11-of-30 passes for 141 yards, one touchdown and four interceptions in St. Louis' 24-10, Week 5 loss to the Packers.

Foles never stood a chance, facing constant pressure while his receiver corps comprehensively failed to get open. Foles compounded the bad situation by routinely holding onto the ball for too long. It was a group struggle for the Rams' offense. Each of Foles' first three picks was squarely on his shoulders. Desperately trying to make something happen in the face of the rush, Foles heaved the ball to nowhere. Struggling as much as his weapons, Foles won't be a recommended QB2 against the Browns in Week 7.

Nick Foles completed 16-of-24 passes for 171 yards and three touchdowns in the Rams' Week 4 win over the Cardinals.

Of course, Foles showed up and tossed three red-zone touchdowns against one of the league's stingiest defenses a week after being a no-show at home against the Steelers. Entering Sunday, the Rams ran eight plays all season in the red zone, and on Sunday, Foles hooked up with Tavon Austin for two 12-yard touchdowns and sandwiched an 18-yarder to Stedman Bailey. He still missed a couple throws, but overall Foles has played better than his numbers would suggest through four games. He's on pace for a meager 20:4 TD:INT ratio. Treat him as a QB2 next week in Green Bay.
Sun, Oct 4, 2015 07:48:00 PM

Nick Foles completed 19-of-28 passes for 197 yards, zero touchdowns and an interception in the Rams' 12-6, Week 3 loss to the Steelers.

Facing arguably the worst secondary in the league, the Rams were bafflingly conservative, keeping everything underneath while making few attempts to take the top off of the defense. Foles' INT was a nightmarishly bad throw. He arm punted to nowhere with 3:02 left in the game, essentially sealing the contest for Pittsburgh. Foles simply didn't see S Will Allen. In as good of a matchup as he'll ever get, Foles couldn't even muster QB2 numbers. He'll be off the fantasy radar for next week's road trip to Arizona.
