Michael Vick limited in practice Wednesday, doesn't seem like good bet for fantasy Sunday

Jim O'Connor-USA TODAY Sports

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick was limited in practice on Wednesday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick was a limited participant in practice on Wednesday, according to Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News. It's certainly an interesting situation in Philadelphia. Almost every report has suggested that Vick playing on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is totally unlikely, yet Vick continues to practice.

Vick has also said, twice now, that he's doing really well in his recovery. But one has to wonder if it's just smoke and mirrors to try and get the Buccaneers to prepare for Vick and waste practice time that could be spent preparing for Nick Foles, who seems poised to get the start on Sunday.

Vick injured his hamstring against the New York Giants in Week 5 and gave way to Foles. Vick finished with 105 yards on 6-for-14 passing, while Foles finished 16-for-25 with 197 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions.

Fantasy Impact: Vick may want to play because the Eagles have made it clear that Foles could make a name for himself and win the starting gig if he has a great performance. That said, it still seems incredibly unlikely that he plays. Even if he thinks he's ready, the Eagles are probably just entertaining the notion to keep Tampa Bay on its toes. Do not start Michael Vick this week, fantasy owners. Foles, however, seems a solid option.
