Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the QB position. The best rating is +16 which gives the player the advantage against the defense and indicates an easy opponent, the worst rating is -16 which gives the defense the advantage and indicates a tough opponent.
With often-injured Michael Vick (13 missed games since 2010) expected to start, the Eagles wisely decided to keep Foles in the fold as an insurance policy. Last season, Philadelphia’s 2012 third-round pick made six season-ending starts in place of the injured Vick, throwing for an average of 243 yards and one touchdown per contest. The competitive Foles displayed a strong arm, but, like many rookies, he was mistake prone. Foles also isn’t known for his scrambling ability, which could limit him in new head coach Chip Kelly’s up-tempo offense. Since Vick is unlikely to make it through the season healthy, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Foles make at least a couple of spot-starts. He would have a talented group of playmakers at his disposal: DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin, Brent Celek, Zach Ertz, LeSean McCoy and Bryce Brown. However, as a starter, Foles would be a low-end fantasy QB2 matchup play at best.
