Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick continued to struggle in Week 5 versus the Detroit Lions. While Vick did surpass 300 passing yards and threw two touchdowns, the Eagles lost and Vick turned the ball over twice. The Eagles have been struggling to overcome Vick's costly mistakes.
While he is a big name quarterback with big game potential, he has yet to play up to expectations this season. It's beginning to look like Vick's best days are behind him. Hopefully that's not the case.
Fantasy Analysis: Vick had tremendous fantasy value because he was a threat to score with his arm and legs, and didn't turn the ball over much. Today's Vick has not been making nearly enough plays and at this point it's fair to label him turnover-prone.
While Vick's numbers are nice, they cannot keep taking hits. In fantasy, Vick seems to be constantly negated points for on-the-field mistakes. Unless he can cut down on the mistakes, fantasy owners might want to start playing the match-ups with their backups.
