Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick said Wednesday in a text message that he's happy to still have the support of head coach Andy Reid. Vick send the message to The Philadelphia Inquirer after Reid confirmed that Vick would remain the team's starter despite problems with turnovers during the team's 3-4 start.
Vick fueled talk of a possible switch at quarterback after Sunday's loss to the Atlanta Falcons, when he said Reid was "obviously" considering a change at the position. Rookie Nick Foles, who gained a swell of support with his solid play in the preseason, is Vick's backup. Vick has accounted for 13 of Philadelphia's 17 turnovers heading into Monday's game with the New Orleans Saints.
Fantasy Impact: Vick is clearly running out of chances but that doesn't mean fantasy owners have to bail on him. He did not turn the ball over against Atlanta and gets to face one of the worst defenses in the league on Monday.
For Week 10, Vick is a very viable option as a fantasy quarterback and should be starting in most formats.
