Michael Vick held out of Eagles practice: Fantasy implications

Rich Schultz

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick (concussion) did not practice on Thursday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick did not practice on Thursday, as expected. Vick suffered a concussion in last weekend's loss to the Dallas Cowboys, an injury that coach Andy Reid described earlier this week as "significant."

Vick was replaced by rookie Nick Foles, who is expected to start on Sunday against the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Impact: The Eagles haven't officially ruled Vick out for this weekend's game but fantasy owners aren't expecting to see him on the field. Vick hasn't been this season and Philadelphia fans have been wanting see Foles get a chance.

There has been some speculation that Vick won't return as the starter this season but a lot of that will depend on Foles and the team's record, which is currently 3-6. Vick has no fantasy value for Week 11, while Foles should be considered a No. 2 fantasy option against a poor Washington defense.
