Nick Foles Fantasy News
Monday, June 17, 2013, 4:12pm
Comcast Sportsnet Philadelphia Eagles beat writer Geoff Mosher broke down the Eagles depth chart, and talked about the QB position where right now there seems to be no clear-cut favorite between Michael Vick and Nick Foles.
Vick is the logical choice given what we know about HC Chip Kelly's offense, as well as Vick's contract and the tendency to play the guy making the most money - in Vick's case about 7 million. Vick has the most fantasy upside, too, but is often injured, and we just don't know if Kelly is going to be an NFL genius or a total flop. That said, Vick is ranked 15th among our QBs and is worth a later-round pick as a backup. Of course, some media even feel rookie fourth-rounder Matt Barkley has a shot to start as well.

Eagles QB Michael Vick opened with the first-team offense, but Nick Foles also took a significant number of snaps at the NovaCare Complex. Kelly believed it was near a 50-50 distribution. Neither Matt Barkley nor Dennis Dixon took first-team snaps on Monday, but both received steady work during Kelly's fast-paced practice.
"We're just trying to get reps off and trying to get film and look at it," Kelly said. "It's May 13 and we've got a long ways to go before we ever set a depth chart or do anything like that."
We believe Vick will win the job, but anything can (and may) happen.
Michael Vick working with first team

Vick is an interesting player this season because as a fantasy QB2, he doesn't carry the risk he has in years past. We believe he'll be the starter in 2013, but expect him to miss a few games due to injury.

Nick Foles out Week 17; Michael Vick to start

And Reid: QB Nick Foles won't play Sunday.

Andy Reid said Friday he thinks LeSean McCoy might go to an independent neurologist for clearance on Tuesday, before the team begins preparations in earnest for the next game, Dec. 23 against Washington. McCoy can practice without the clearance, but he needs it to play.
McCoy, 24, is a huge part of the Eagles’ future. How much do you risk in two meaningless end-of-season games? People did buy tickets. Reid seemed to be indicating Friday that 21-year-old rookie Bryce Brown won’t simply go back to the bench if McCoy returns; Brown, who barely played in college, is a raw talent who needs game action.
“He needs to play. That’s why I haven’t sat him down because of the fumbles,” Reid said of Brown.
Brown has officially lost three fumbles this year, but was at least partly responsible for one in Week 15 against Cincy. And as Reid said, Brown needs time on the field. It will likely be a situation to stay away from if both backs are getting carries. There's no real indication of how they could be used, either. And, the team also wants to get a good look at rookie QB Nick Foles at the same time.

Vick hasn't been cleared to play in games yet, but we know rookie Nick Foles has been named the starter for the rest of the year. Vick should be available to be the backup QB in Weeks 16 and 17.
