Michael Vick Injury Update: Nick Foles will start in a positive fantasy matchup

Elsa

Nick Foles gets a nice matchup on Sunday. Should you start him?

Michael Vick (concussion) did not practice all week and he has been ruled out for Sunday's game. Nick Foles was named the starter for the rest of the season.

Michael Vick's days in an Eagles uniform could be numbered. His stats are currently sitting at 2,165 passing yard with seven TDs and nine interceptions.

Fantasy Impact: Vick's contract has a bit of an escape route for the Eagles and there's a strong chance he will be a free agent for next season. There's really no need to stash him in any league.

Nick Foles has struggled so far in his rookie season, but things are looking up for him on Sunday. The Bucs are by far the worst team in the league against the pass and they're even trending downward since they traded away former first-round pick Aqib Talib. You'd have to be in a tough spot, but Foles has upside.
