Chiefs to start Nick Foles at quarterback Sunday vs. Jaguars

By on November 2, 2016

The Kansas City Chiefs confirmed what most of the fantasy football world already knows; Nick Foles will start at quarterback Sunday (Week 9) at home against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The former Philadelphia Eagles and St. Louis Rams starting QB filled in admirably against the Indianapolis Colts last Sunday putting up 223 yards / 2 TD’s / 0 INT’s in relief of an injured Alex Smith.

Fantasy Football Implications

In a nutshell, it all depends. According to Rotoworld and CBS Sports the Jaguars are ranked 13th against the pass but With 6 teams on bye weeks fantasy football players are scrounging the waiver wire in search of a one week Band Aid until their starters return in week 10. In deep leagues (12 to 14 tearms)and 2 quarterback leagues Foles is definitely worth consideration.

Who’s Most Likely Impacted

With Foles at quarterback Chiefs TE Travis Kelce collected 7 receptions for 101 years both season highs. We expect Kelce to be Nick Foles target with at least 9 attempts heading the Tight Ends Directions.
