Nick Foles preparing like he'll start in Week 11: Fantasy implications

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles has to prepare this week like he's going to start in Week 11, coach Andy Reid said Wednesday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles has to prepare this week like he's going to start, coach Andy Reid said on Wednesday. Reid stopped short of ruling out Michael Vick (concussion) but said Vick was still resting and going through concussion protocol.

Foles threw for 219 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Week 10 and was nearly named the starter earlier this season following a number of turnovers by Vick. The Eagles face the Washington Redskins in Week 11.

Fantasy Impact: Foles wasn't great in relief but could be worth grabbing this week against a very poor Washington defense. Vick's concussion is said to be significant and there's no reason to think he will start this week.

Foles gained support in Philadelphia with his strong play in the preseason but should only be considered a No. 2 fantasy option at quarterback this week. He has more value in dynasty and keeper formats.
