Nick Foles to get start in Week 11--any fantasy value here?


Nick Foles will get the start in Week 11 against the Redskins with Michael Vick suffering a concussion. We break down the fantasy implications.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Philadelphia Eagles QB will get the start next week against the Washington Redskins. Michael Vick left Sunday's game against the Cowboys with a "significant" concussion and could miss multiple games.

Foles completed 22 of 32 passes for 219 yards and a TD, but he also threw a pick six and was strip-sacked as the Eagles were downed 38-23.

Fantasy Impact: Are you feeling lucky? And do you still trust Philly's O-line? Those are the big questions to ask before you sprint off to the waiver wire. Foles is still a 3rd-round rookie who played like it Sunday, and is a 6'5" immobile statue, playing behind an O-line that couldn't protect Vick of all people.

Philly fans have been clamoring for Foles for weeks now, but they may get a cruel reminder to "be careful what you wish for". If you do pick him up, stash him on the bench and see what happens, but don't trust him in your starting lineup yet.
