Chicago Bears QB Nick Foles completed 23-of-39 passes for 198 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Week 6 against the Carolina Panthers while also running for a score.
Huddle Up: Foles wasn't particularly sharp, and he didn't put up huge number, but he led the team to another victory. He has way more value to his real team than to fantasy owners at the moment. Only use him as a low-end QB2 in most fantasy leagues right now. The Bears travel to meet the Los Angeles Rams in Week 7.

Chicago Bears QB Nick Foles completed 30 of 42 passes for 243 yards, one touchdown and one interception against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday, Oct. 8.
Huddle Up: Foles was brutal early on before settling into a bit of a groove. That being said, he was fortunate to walk away with just one interception Thursday night as the Bucs were in position for more. The veteran hasn't inspired much confidence in two starts since an electric relief appearance back in Week 3. Consider Foles as fringe roster depth in most leagues; he would only be playable in extremely favorable matchups.

Chicago Bears QB Nick Foles finished 26-of-42 for 249 yards with a touchdown and an interception in Week 4 versus the Indianapolis Colts.
Huddle Up: The final line looks decent, but Foles accumulated most of his numbers on the Bears' final drive with his team trailing by 16 late in the fourth quarter. To be fair, the Colts have emerged as one of the league's best defenses through a quarter of the season. Still, Chicago is going to need him to be more accurate to have a chance against some of the league's better teams and/or defenses. Fantasy owners should consider him a low-end QB2 on a short week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Chicago Bears QB Nick Foles was named the starting quarterback ahead of Mitch Trubisky for Week 4 against the Indianapolis Colts on Monday, Sept. 28.
Huddle Up: It seemed only a matter of time before this happened. Even though Trubisky wasn't all that bad in Week 3 and "led" the Bears to a 2-0 start, he just never did consistently enough to move the offense. Although Chicago did not score for the first 1 1/2 quarters Foles took over, he sparked the offense in the second half and threw for three touchdowns in the final 6:20 to rally the Bears past the Atlanta Falcons. He'll be a low-end fantasy QB2 in Week 4 against the suddenly stout Colts defense.

Chicago Bears QB Nick Foles completed 16-of-29 passes for 188 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Week 3 against the Atlanta Falcons, coming off the bench for the ineffective QB Mitchell Trubisky.
Huddle Up: Foles helped the Bears to a 20-0 fourth quarter and comeback win against the beleaguered Falcons. Saint Nick is also certain to be under the center in Week 4 against the Indianapolis Colts. Despite the big three-TD performance, he is still more of a QB2 for fantasy purposes as a starter.

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky was benched during the Week 3 game and has been replaced by QB Nick Foles.
Huddle Up: Trubisky won the job during training camp, but Foles is taking over at least temporarily. Fantasy players will need to monitor the situation to see if Foles will keep the job for the rest of the season. Foles would be a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues if he keeps the job.

Chicago Bears QBs Nick Foles and Mitchell Trubisky continue to battle for the starting quarterback job, and head coach Matt Nagy said Monday, Aug. 31 that he will announce his starter sometime next week, likely Monday, Sept. 6 or Wednesday, Sept. 8.
Huddle Up: It's uncertain which quarterback will win the job, although most feel that Foles is a better quarterback than Trubisky at this point. The latter is the incumbent, but Foles is also a Super Bowl winner with a better history in the league. Either way, whomever wins the job is nothing more than a QB2 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky and Nick Foles have been competing for the starting quarterback job during training camp, and head coach Matt Nagy said he will not name the starting quarterback before the start of the regular season.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to keep an eye on the situation over the next few weeks to see who will win the job. Neither Trubisky nor Foles should be a starting fantasy option but the winner could be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.

Chicago Bears QBs Mitchell Trubisky and Nick Foles appear to be no closer to answering the question regarding the identity of the team's starting quarterback in Week 1 against the Detroit Lions.
'It's not going to happen soon,' Matt Nagy said.

Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy said Tuesday, May 26, QBs Mitchell Trubisky and Nick Foles will both see time working with the starters in preseason games.
Huddle Up: This means the decision on who will be the Bears' Week 1 starter is likely to come after the majority of fantasy drafts are completed. Whichever one wins the job should be used as a low-tier QB2, though Trubisky has slightly more upside.
