Andy Reid released his QB depth chart for the Eagles preseason opener. We break down the fantasy implications

Jeff McClane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid has set the following quarterback order for Thursday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers: Michael Vick, Mike Kafka, Nick Foles and Trent Edwards.

Analysis: This is really no surprise, but the intrigue here is to see if anyone can be a serviceable backup to Vick, who played in 12 games in 2010 and 13 games last season. Kafka is currently the No. 2 and the Eagles drafted Foles in the third round, but he is likely not ready to contribute. Given his medical history and the current roster of quarterbacks, the Eagles won't take too many chances with Vick this early in the preseason. When healthy, Vick is a top 10 fantasy option in most weeks, but right now there are no viable fantasy options on this roster should something happen to him.
