Every year we give our premium content members a team-by-team, player-by-player look at the NFL season that was. The coverage will be in-depth, but because the Dynasty Capsule series begins immediately after the season, we won’t use it to discuss free agency or the draft. Come see us in early May once Mr. Irrelevant is off the board for another 32-article series giving you the same detailed discussion you’ll see below.
Buckle up dynasty fans, because you’re about to be reminded why our motto is, “There is no off-season.”
This is an all-encompassing look at the Jaguars' offense heading into the 2020 off-season.
Nick Foles (ADP: 235, QB35)
The unfortunate opening day injury aside, nothing about the 2019 season was encouraging for Foles' dynasty owners. He entered the season as the QB33 in ADP and was seemingly locked into a starting job for two years in what appeared to be a promising situation. The emergence of Gardner Minshew in Foles’ absence, though, has Foles' future as an NFL starting QB very much in jeopardy.
While his contract makes it unlikely the Jaguars will cut bait, trade suitors are likely nowhere to be found for the 31-year-old gunslinger given the strength of both the 2020 free agent class and the numerous promising signal-callers entering the league via the draft. Best-case scenario has Foles competing with Minshew for the starting job this summer. Even if he prevails, the leash will be very short with Minshew Mania only one snap away.
This likely spells the end of the value floor Foles had a year ago. Barring another miraculous run, it’s unlikely to be rebuilt. I’d recommend holding him if you already have him on a roster, and absolutely capitalize on any positive news regarding his role as a starter. There might be a very short window to sell him for any appreciable return. That’s not likely to come until we get deep into the training camp battle.
