Vince Young Fantasy Stats: Eagles Backup Solid As A Starter

Vince Young was inserted as the starting quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles for the first time on Sunday night, filling in for the injured Michael Vick. Young didn't get out to the hottest start for his fantasy owners in his Eagles debut, but the veteran was able to lead his team to a victory over the New York Giants.

Young didn't look like he was going to be able to put up the most impressive statistics as he began the game with a pair of interceptions. When all was said and done, however, the Eagles quarterback ended the game by completing 23 of his 36 passing attempts for 258 yards and two touchdowns to go with an unfortunate three interceptions.

It's doubtful too many people were counting on Young for their fantasy team, but he performed at a respectable level regardless. For those that did start him, hopefully he kept his fake team's playoff hopes alive like he did Philadelphia's on Sunday Night Football.
