Kevin Kolb to start at QB for Eagles Week 17

Jeff McLane on Twitter - [Full Article]

No big scoop/surprise here, but Eagles QB Michael Vick will not play Sunday against the Cowboys and Kevin Kolb will start, per team sources.

Fantasy Impact: 

As the story says, not a real big surprise considering how the Eagles and Vick came out of Week 16 after a loss to Minny. Vick is a bit banged up and continues to take hit after hit whether he stays in the pocket or runs. The Eagles will most likely use Week 17 as their bye week, since they are locked into the 3rd seed win or lose this week. Kolb makes a decent start in Week 17 against a Cowboys secondary that has given up points. Kolb will likely work a lot with Jermone Harrison at RB and Jason Avant and Riley Cooper at WR.
