Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick (hamstring) will likely not come back as the team's starter even when he's fully healed from injury, according to a report by Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News. Teammate Nick Foles has played outstanding in Vick's absence and is now the team's go-to guy.
Fantasy Impact: Vick is pretty much relegated to being a handcuff to Foles at this point. Foles has 16 touchdown passes and has yet to throw an interception this season. Against the Oakland Raiders in Week 9.
Foles tied an NFL record throwing seven touchdown passes, a mark that the Denver Broncos' Peyton Manning matched back in Week 1.
Having a quarterback match anything Manning has accomplished this year would make that quarterback worth a second look, not only in fantasy leagues but in the real world. More importantly though, Foles has led the Eagles to wins in an NFC east division that is still very much up for grabs.
Wide receiver Riley Cooper benefits the most from a fantasy perspective with Foles being the starter now. Cooper has gone over 100 yards receiving and scored five times in the last two weeks.
