After weeks of speculation that had been labeled a foregone conclusion by many pundits, Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent quarterback Nick Foles will join the Jacksonville Jaguars when free agency officially opens Wednesday, March 13. He agreed to a four-year, $88 million deal with north of $50 million guaranteed.
That’s a lot of cheddar.
Foles was far better in real life than for fake gaming. The veteran went 5-2 as a starter last year, including the playoffs, but topped 21.5 fantasy points just once, exploding for 39.7 against a pathetic Houston pass defense.
In 2017, he threw at least 10 balls in seven games, racking up six wins. Foles was either great or dreadful that year. He finished with four games of no more than 12.2 points and a trio contests with at least 27.9 points. There was far more talent on either of those teams than what Jacksonville currently sports.
Let us take a chance and assume Leonard Fournette returns to form and is free from disputes with the organization this…
