Chicago Bears QB Nick Foles could be the team's Week 1 starter under certain scenarios, in the opinion of The Athletic's Kevin Fishbain, who writes that one of them could be as a bridge to an early-round draft pick.
Huddle Up: Another scenario involves Foles outperforming another journeyman-type veteran in camp. Obviously these are something the Bears would hope to avoid, and even if Foles were somehow under center in Week 1 it seems dubious at best to think he'd hold the job for long.

Chicago Bears QB Nick Foles (hip) is expected to serve as the team's No. 2 quarterback for Week 13's game against the Detroit Lions.
Huddle Up: Foles had been listed as questionable on the injury report after logging two full practice sessions and one limited session during the week. Mitchell Trubisky will serve as the team's starting quarterback for now and has enjoyed a great deal of success in his career versus the Lions, making him worthy of consideration as a streaming option in deeper fantasy formats or a QB2 option in two-quarterback leagues.

Chicago Bears QB Nick Foles (hip) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday, Dec. 2.
Huddle Up: QB Mitchell Trubisky has already been named the Week 13 starter by head coach Matt Nagy. There's no reason to hold Foles in any format.

Chicago Bears QB Nick Foles (hip) has been declared inactive for the Week 12 game.

Chicago Bears QB Nick Foles (hip) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 27, and is listed as doubtful for Week 12.
Huddle Up: Foles likely will miss at least a week because of the injury, so Mitchell Trubisky is in track to start in the Week 12 game. Fantasy players should avoid the Bears quarterback situation no matter who starts.

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) practiced in full for a second straight day Thursday, Nov. 26, and is expected to draw the start over Nick Foles in Week 12 against the Green Bay Packers, according to Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune.
Huddle Up: Foles has yet to practice this week, giving head coach Matt Nagy little choice under center. There is also speculation Trubisky will be given an opportunity to regain the job he lost in Week 3 on a permanent basis with Foles playing so poorly since his promotion. Trubisky theoretically offers more with his running ability, but Nagy has been hesitant to use it. It's a situation to avoid outside of two-quarterback and superflex leagues, and even then Trubisky should be considered a dicey QB2 start at best.

Chicago Bears QB Nick Foles (hip) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 26.
Huddle Up: Foles probably will need to practice Friday, Nov. 27, if he wants a chance to play. He has not had a lot of success over the last several weeks and can be avoided even if he starts in Week 12.

Chicago Bears QB Nick Foles (hip) is 'day to day' with his hip injury, according to head coach Matt Nagy.
Huddle Up: Nagy went on to praise Trubisky, who could get the call Sunday night. No matter who starts they shouldn't be in your fantasy lineup.

Chicago Bears QB Nick Foles (hip) didn't participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 25.
Huddle Up: Foles is a low-end QB2 at best, regardless of matchup and health status. Fantasy managers shouldn't be missing him if he needs to sit out Week 12.

Chicago Bears QB Nick Foles (hip) and QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) are both working their way back from injury, and head coach Matt Nagy said it is too early to name a starting quarterback for Week 12.
Huddle Up: Trubisky lost his job to Foles earlier in the season, but neither quarterback has posted great numbers this season. Fantasy players can monitor the situation during the week but can avoid the situation in their lineups.
