Nick Foles will get the start Sunday in place of Case Keenum (concussion), Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.
This news comes as no surprise after Keenum suffered a blatant head injury during the St. Louis Rams ' final drive last week against Baltimore. Foles, who began the season as the starter, was benched following a loss to the Bears on Nov. 15, but he'll take back the reins and look to improve upon what's been a struggle-filled season. In nine games, Foles has completed just 56.6 percent of his passes while tossing six interceptions compared to only seven touchdowns. Considering St. Louis faces the Bengals in Cincinnati, the Rams' offense figures to be among the least productive fantasy options in Week 12.
The St. Louis Rams are preparing for Nick Foles to start Sunday's game in Cincinnati, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Case Keenum (concussion) hasn't cleared the NFL's concussion protocol, but he is listed as questionable. Whichever quarterback ends up starting for the Rams will be among the least attractive Week 12 options at his position. The team wants to see how Keenum feels Saturday, at which point a final decision could be made.
Nick Foles was demoted in favor of Case Keenum was as the St. Louis Rams ' starting quarterback Monday.
Foles is coming off only his second 200-plus yard performance of the season, in which he's completed a miserable 56.6 percent of his passes with seven touchdowns versus six interceptions. While Keenum boasts a 2-8 record as a starter, head coach Jeff Fisher will hope that the change will light a spark under an inept offense outside of Todd Gurley.
Nick Foles completed 17 of 36 passes for 200 yards and an interception in Sunday's loss to the Bears.
The fourth-year pro failed to exploit a beatable Chicago secondary, going without a touchdown pass for the third time in four games. He has also failed to top 200 yards since the opening week of the season, and his 7:8 TD:Turnover ratio has him firmly off the fantasy radar at this point. The St. Louis Rams face the Ravens and their exploitable secondary in Week 11, but expectations for Foles should be tempered.
Nick Foles completed 18-of-38 passes for just 168 yards in Sunday's overtime loss to the Vikings. He also gained two yards on his only carry.
Foles has now failed to eclipse the 200-yard mark in seven consecutive games, and has thrown for just six touchdowns during that span. His minimal role in the St. Louis Rams ' run-heavy offense has amounted to quite a few ineffective outings in fantasy terms, and he generally doesn't deserve much consideration, even with a plus matchup in hand. The Rams will face the generous Bears secondary in Week 10, but there are better options available.
