Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid said Monday that Michael Vick's status as starting quarterback would be evaluated as the season goes along. We break down the fantasy implications.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick did not get a strong endorsement on Monday from coach Andy Reid, who said that "right now" Vick is the starter but that his status would be evaluated as the season went along. Reid made the comment in his news conference a day after the Eagles lost to the Arizona Cardinals. Vick completed 17 of 37 passes for 217 yards in the 27-6 loss.

Fantasy Impact: Even though the Eagles are 2-1, Vick has frustrated his team and fantasy owners with interceptions and a lack of consistent play on offense. Things finally caught up to the Eagles on Sunday after winning the first two games of the season despite seeing Vick throw six interceptions. Vick is not a reliable option as a starting fantasy quarterback but he is in no current danger of losing his starting job with the Eagles.
