Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles are off to an excellent start on Sunday Night Football, both as far as winning the game and fantasy football purposes are concerned. Vick ended the first half with 187 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for 45 additional yards.
Vick hasn't been the fantasy force in 2011 many forecast as a continuance of his outstanding 2010. He seemed to have been getting on track in Week 6, and with a bye week in Week 7, and was likely rested — which is key for the injury-riddled QB — and prepared to face DeMarcus Ware and the Dallas Cowboys pass rush.
DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin, Jason Avant and LeSean McCoy are also all healthy, which means Vick has, again, the best weapons around him, helping him to what should end up being a huge fantasy performance in Week 8.
