Nick Foles, Quarterback, Philadelphia Eagles
Foles had himself a helluva season with the Eagles last season and he’ll look to build on that success in his first outing against the Jaguars. The Jags have shored up a lot of holes on the defense this offseason but lack some depth. In heavier receiver sets or over the middle, you can expect Foles to find some weaknesses to exploit. The Jags had the 25th ranked defense in yards through the air and 29 passing TDs to boot. While you shouldn’t expect Foles to put up the near three TDs he averaged per game last season, you can still expect him to pickup right where he left off last year. For those of you who may have forgotten, that is 2,891 yards, 27 TDs, and just two picks in 10 starts.
