Nick Foles throws for two touchdowns as Michael Vick deals with injury

Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY

Nick Foles managed 197 passing yards and two touchdowns after relieving an injured Michael Vick before halftime. We take a look at the fantasy implications.

Fantasy owners of Michael Vick were likely disappointed on Sunday. Vick threw for 105 yards and rushed seven times for 79 yards before exiting the game with a hamstring injury. Nick Foles threw for 197 yards and two touchdowns after replacing Vick shortly before halftime. Foles didn't turn the ball over as he led the Eagles to 36-21 victory over the Giants.

Fantasy impact: Fortunately for fantasy owners, Vick was able to deliver good rushing totals before leaving the game. Despite Foles' solid performance, Chip Kelly has maintained that Vick will still be the starter when healthy. In fact, Kelly said that VIck could have taken the field again if Foles suffered a setback on the field. Regardless of who starts in Week 6, both quarterbacks will have a tough match against a Tampa Bay defense that has limited fantasy points for quarterbacks this season. Vick will be a risky start as he relies on his legs for much of his fantasy production. It may be beneficial to fantasy owners in the long run if he is able to rest his hamstring an extra week.
