InjuryFoles likley to test free agent waters

Eagles coach Doug Pederson put an end to the Carson Wentz-Nick Foles quarterback debate during his season-ending press conference on Tuesday. “Yes, Carson is the quarterback going forward,” Pederson said. “And in Nick’s case, we’d love to have everybody back throughout the roster but — as I’ve said many, many times — it’s not about one guy. It’s about the team and we’re going to do what’s best for the team.” (NJ.com)

Nerdy Football Analysis: It sounds like Foles will be switching teams this off-season and Wentz, who missed five games with a bad back will return as the starting QB in 2019. Wentz is expected to make a full recovery this off-season. With more than a few teams searching for a quality quarterback, Foles should have no trouble finding a starting gig on the open market.

Jarwin the healthier of the two

Despite being listed as questionable, Dallas Cowboys receiver Cole Beasley and tight end Blake Jarwin will be active for Saturday night’s NFC divisional game against the Los Angeles Rams, a source tells ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Beasley and Jarwin didn’t practice this week because of ankle injuries. The players will workout pregame, with Jarwin having a better chance of playing, according to the source. (ESPN)

Nerdy Football Analysis: Both Beasley and Jarwin missed practice all week so it remains to see how effective they will be against the Rams. Neither are viable fantasy plays given their low target volume and injury status.
