Michael Vick helps fantasy owners with 95 yards rushing

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

Turnovers and inconsistency plagued the Eagles passing game, but Michael Vick still helped owners with his legs. We break down the fantasy implications.

Michael Vick completed 13-of-30 passes for 201 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions against the Chiefs on Thursday night. Vick also lost a fumble and was sacked five times in Week 3.

Despite his struggles through the air, Vick racked up 95 yards on the ground. A 61-yard burst padded his stats.

Fantasy impact: After the initial love fest regarding Chip Kelly's offense died down, Michael Vick reverted to his 2012 form against Kansas City. Turnovers became a huge issue again, and he couldn't sustain drives throughout the night.

Vick's rushing total helps overall, giving owners an extra nine points to make up for some of the blunders. The Eagles have another tough test against the Broncos next week. While it's too early to panic about Vick, it would be wise to monitor his progress carefully going forward, especially if the turnovers continue.
