Michael Vick concussion: Still not ruled out, fantasy value still possible

Jim Rogash

As he rests, will the Eagles quarterback make a quick return from a head injury? We break down the fantasy implications.

Eagles quarterback Michael Vick is currently resting at NovaCare Rehabilitation as he awaits to begin recovery from a concussion suffered on Sunday and he still can't be 'officially ruled out' of Sunday's game against the Redskins according to Philly writer Jeff McLane.

Philadelphia has lost five straight games and are preparing for rookie Nick Foles to make his first career start on Sunday against Washington. Foles was 22-of-32 for 219 yards and a touchdown in his debut in relief of Vick against the Cowboys.

Fantasy Take: Vick's fantasy status, with just 12 total touchdowns in nine games, is not close to what it once was. At this point, with Foles on waiver wires everywhere, he might be the better value play.
