Andy Reid says Michael Vick is still the starter for now. We break down the fantasy implications.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick will remain the starter for now. After an ambiguous, half-hearted endorsement in Monday morning's presser, head coach Andy Reid was more emphatic in his radio show, stating that Vick is the starter: "Michael is our QB. Period. Michael is our QB. Listen, does he need to get better? Do we all need to get better? Yes."

Fantasy Impact: Vick has six turnovers in three games, but the Eagles are still 2-1 despite his struggles. He would probably have a more tenuous grip on the job if they had a better option than third-round rookie Nick Foles backing him up. That said, it's an ugly situation in Philly, and fantasy owners should be sitting him on the bench until he turns things around.
