Michael Vick to start in Week 8, fantasy value unchanged

Scott Cunningham

Michael Vick will remain as the starting quarterback in Philadelphia. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Eagles announced Michael Vick will still be their starting quarterback coming out of their bye. Vick will remain under center to take on the team that drafted him out of Virginia Tech, Philadelphia hosts the Falcons in Week 8.

Turnovers have plagued Vick through his first six games in 2012. He is responsible for 13 of the team's 17 turnovers so far this season. Vick has completed 136 of 231 passes for 1,632 yards, eight touchdowns and eight interceptions.

Fantasy Impact: Even with the mass amount of turnovers each week, Vick is still finding ways to put in decent fantasy performances. He finished with 311 passing yards, two touchdowns and 59 yards on the ground last week against the Lions.

The Falcons just made Carson Palmer look like a potential Pro Bowl candidate, so Vick's value remains high for Week 8. Continue to start him unless the Eagles decide they're better off with Nick Foles running the show.
