Michael Vick injury will keep him out for Week 6, boosting Nick Foles' fantasy value

Elsa

The inevitable Vick injury came in Week 5 against the Giants.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick is expected to miss the team's Week 6 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after suffering a hamstring injury in Week 5 against the Giants, according to Adam Schefter.

Nick Foles will be starting for the Eagles in place of the injured Vick. Foles threw two touchdown passes after Vick went down on Sunday, leading the Eagles to a win over the New York Giants.

Fantasy spin: Nick Foles is a capable quarterback and showed what he can do in the right situation on Sunday. He's not going to bring down the fantasy value of the Eagles' offense too much, and he should have some value of his own with the right matchup.

Foles will be one of the hot fantasy football adds this week, and it could pay dividends if Vick happens to miss more time than expected. Stay tuned to more Vick injury news to gauge Foles' value.
