|Foles parlayed his playoff heroics of the Eagles Super Bowl run into a lucrative free agent deal with the Jaguars over the off-season. For the Jaguar skill position players, a functioning toaster or other small household appliance would be a better quarterback option than what Blake Bortles gave the team over the past five seasons.
Foles will provide the team with an accurate and competent signal-caller, and someone who will not make as many boneheaded mistakes as his predecessor. But for fantasy purposes, Foles lacks the upside of others at a position that is as deep as ever.
On the positive side, the Jaguars' offensive line should be much improved by additions in the draft and the return of multiple injured o-lineman. However, Leonard Fournette will once again be the focal point of an offense that will be intent on running the ball heavily while leaning on a stout defense.
Bottom line: Foles could be a streaming option in certain matchups, but should mostly be avoided in non-super flex leagues.
|Gardner Minshew to start in Week 14|
Nick Foles back to the bench

|Gardner Minshew II will start at quarterback for Jaguars against Los Angeles Chargers Sunday, HC Doug Marrone says... (John Oehser on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Head coach Doug Marrone is citing Minshew's mobility as a main factor for making the switch back to the mustached one. If the Jags consider mobility a main ingredient they want from their quarterback, then perhaps they shouldn't have spent $88 million on Nick Foles him in the off-season with $50 million worth of guarantees. The Jags host the Chargers in Week 14.
| Nick Foles in as starting QB, Minshew to the bench|
Jags have bye in Week 10

|Minshew Mania ends (for now): #Jaguars coach Doug Marrone announces that QB Nick Foles was named starter. Foles comes off IR and is back. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: The decision was made easier as Gardner Minshew and the Jaguars struggled in Week 9 against the Texans in London. The Jags have a bye in Week 10 so Foles will resume his starting role in Week 11 against the Colts.
