Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg says Michael Vick's pocket presence is an area that needs to keep improving. We break down the fantasy implications.

Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg says Michael Vick is having a terrific camp, but tells The Philadelphia Inquirer that the quarterback's pocket presence is an area that needs to keep improving. Vick went 3-for-4 for just 6 yards passing in the preseason game against Pittsburgh, and Mornhinweg says Vick moved himself into a sack on a play that appeared to be well protected.

Analysis: Vick is one of the most exciting -- and frustrating -- players in fantasy football. There are weeks when he racks up the points and others when injuries and inconsistency let owners down. Even in a limited number of plays against the Steelers, Vick took a sack and banged his left thumb on his center's helmet. There are weeks when Vick will be a great fantasy play, but anyone drafting him should have an above-average backup.
