With Nick Foles in at quarterback and Carson Wentz out, the Philadelphia Eagles are starting to rekindle the magic that led them to a Super Bowl title last season. 


This team seemed dead in the water, but somehow beat one of the best teams in the NFC in Week 15, taking down the Rams on the road in Los Angeles. Foles may be a great fit in this role for Philadelphia, but is he good for the Eagles' receivers on your fantasy team?

If you have Alshon Jeffery, you'd love to think so. The former Pro Bowler had one of his best games of the season and one of the first contests where he put up big numbers without a touchdown. He eclipsed 100 yards for the second time this year, his first such game since Week 4 when he racked up 160 yards while tying his season-high in catches with eight.

Golden Tate is still someone you have to be scared about. His mid-season arrival thwarted fantasy production for his owners, as he failed to go for 50 or more yards for the fifth time in six games as an Eagle last week. Tate had to work to get on the same page with Wentz and now may have to do the same with Foles.

For those who are panicking about Zach Ertz -- don't. He's still one of the best tight-end options in the league.

His stinker against Los Angeles should be treated as a fluke, and not a reason to doubt him. Don't forget that Ertz showed he could perform with either quarterback as in Foles' early-season starts, the tight end caught 16 balls for 142 yards in Weeks 1 and 2.

If you have to go with one player, it should still be Ertz. He was still targeted just one less time than Jeffery was and has a proven track record with his current quarterback. Stick to the recent hierarchy with Ertz and Jeffrey towards the top and Tate a tier below.
