Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid has named Nick Foles the team's starting quarterback for the remainder of the season, even when Michael Vick is healthy. Vick is still in phase four of his concussion recovery.
Vick suffered a concussion in the Eagles first loss to the Cowboys during Week 10 and Foles has taken over as quarterback in his place. The Eagles want to see what they have in the rookie Foles and Reid said Vick understood the decision.
Fantasy Impact: Foles had the best game of his NFL career against the Cowboys on Sunday night. He went 22-for-34 with 251 yards passing and one touchdown. Vick was still the stronger fantasy option, but the Eagles have elected to go with the rookie from here on out.
Fantasy owners who were still clinging to Vick hoping that he would return can now finally move on. Foles may not be the best fantasy replacement, but he does seem to be improving.
