LeSean McCoy, Michael Vick ruled out for Week 15: Fantasy implications

Rob Carr

Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy and quarterback Michael Vick have been ruled out for Week 15 because of concussions. We break down the fantasy implications.

Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy and quarterback Michael Vick were officially ruled out of Thursday night's game with the Cincinnati Bengals because of concussions. McCoy hasn't played since getting carted off the field in Week 11 and Vick has been out being injured in Week 13.

Bryce Brown will again start in place of McCoy. Brown had just six yards on 12 carries in the win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after averaging 173.5 yards and two touchdowns in the previous two weeks. Nick Foles will start again at quarterback for the Eagles, who before last weekend hadn't won since Week 4.

Fantasy Impact: Brown has shown he's a solid fantasy option and should be considered a solid No. 2 running back on Thursday night.

Foles, meanwhile, should not be considered a viable fantasy starter.
