Eagles | Nick Foles to start

Wed, 30 Oct 2013 09:22:21 -0700

The Philadelphia Eagles have named QB Nick Foles (concussion) as the starting quarterback in Week 9 against the Oakland Raiders. QB Matt Barkley will serve as the backup. QB Michael Vick (hamstring) will not practice this week and won't be available Sunday, Nov. 3. "One of the good things about practicing on Tuesday is you can get your eyes on people who have been out. Nick did a really good job and Nick will be our starting quarterback this week," head coach Chip Kelly said. Kelly also said he'll make a determination on the quarterback position on a weekly basis moving forward.

Fantasy Tip: Foles makes for a low-end QB1 this weekend mainly as a bye week filler or if you own Vick. The QB situation in Philly will likely come down to who is the healthiest over the next few weeks. Foles should see at least a few more starts with Vick out.

Eagles | Michael Vick not expected to start

Mon, 28 Oct 2013 10:58:04 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly said he doesn't expect QB Michael Vick (hamstring) to start in Week 9 after aggravating his hamstring injury in Week 8. The team will need to see where QB Nick Foles (concussion) is at before deciding if he'll start over QB Matt Barkley.

Fantasy Tip: Vick will probably be out at least multiple weeks after he heard his hamstring pop. Foles, if he can play, would be worth consideration for a starting spot as a bye week filler, but Barkley, who has looked awful, should be ignored.

Eagles | Matt Barkley could start in Week 9

Sun, 27 Oct 2013 15:00:29 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly did not provide any updates on QB Nick Foles (concussion), but was asked if QB Matt Barkley could start in Week 9 if QB Michael Vick (hamstring) is not ready. "It could look that way," Kelly said.

Fantasy Tip: If Barkley does indeed draw the start, he is not worth using in any fantasy leagues. He has been terrible when on the field, and you would have to have multiple quarterbacks on byes and no other options available to be desperate enough to start him.

Eagles | Michael Vick exits

Sun, 27 Oct 2013 11:14:54 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick (hamstring) left the Week 8 game after aggravating his hamstring injury. QB Matt Barkley is taking over.

Fantasy Tip: This is bad news for Vick owners. Check back for updates, but it's hard to see him returning today.

Eagles | Matt Barkley could start in Week 8

Mon, 21 Oct 2013 11:29:40 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Matt Barkley could start in Week 8 against the New York Giants if QBs Michael Vick (hamstring) and Nick Foles (concussion) can't play. "My decision on who our quarterback is is based on health," head coach Chip Kelly said. "Right now, I don't who's healthy or who's not healthy. Until we find out who's healthy, it doesn't help anybody to say, 'That guy's our starter.' It doesn't help the situation."

Fantasy Tip: Barkley tossed three interceptions after replacing Foles against the Dallas Cowboys. If he's forced to start this weekend, you'd be wise to downgrade DeSean Jackson and the rest of Philly's offensive weapons.

Eagles | Matt Barkley mistake-prone in relief

Sun, 20 Oct 2013 16:47:24 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Matt Barkley completed 11 of his 20 pass attempts for 129 yards, no touchdowns and three interceptions in the Week 7 game against the Dallas Cowboys. He was seeing his first action with QB Nick Foles (head) being knocked out of the game and QB Michael Vick (hamstring) inactive.

Fantasy Tip: Barkley might make the start in the next game if Foles suffered a concussion and Vick is not ready, although head coach Chip Kelly is hopeful Vick will be able to return this week. Barkley shouldn't be used in any fantasy format if he does get the starting nod.

Eagles | Nick Foles works with first team

Tue, 15 Oct 2013 11:24:57 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles worked with the first team during practice Tuesday, Oct. 15, with QB Matt Barkley taking the second-team repetitions and QB Michael Vick (hamstring) on the third team.

Fantasy Tip: It sure looks - as of now - that Foles will start his second straight game against the Dallas Cowboys this weekend as the team plays it safe with Vick. The matchup against Dallas isn't a bad one, either. Foles should be considered if you own Drew Brees or Terrelle Pryor, who are both on bye this week.

Eagles | Michael Vick leading competition

Thu, 01 Aug 2013 15:27:21 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick won the quarterback competition by a long shot over QB Nick Foles in practice Wednesday, July 31. Vick connected with WR DeSean Jackson on two long touchdown scores. Vick tossed three TDs on the day and had some nice scrambles. Foles looked average and QB Matt Barkley struggled. Foles threw an interception and Barkley was only 8-for-16 with a touchdown pass and interception. Foles has held onto the ball too long and has been indecisive.

Fantasy Tip: Although there's been speculation as to who new head coach Chip Kelly will choose as his QB, we've been expecting Vick to win the job all along. Vick's skill set should fit Kelly's plans for an up-tempo offense much better. It's still early, however, and a lot can change. Vick could make for a nice sleeper QB2 if he wins the job and can stay healthy all year.

Eagles | Michael Vick takes first-team reps

Fri, 26 Jul 2013 13:04:00 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick took snaps with the first team Friday, July 26, while QB Nick Foles opened with the second team and QB Matt Barkley practiced with the third team. However, Foles eventually saw some time with the first team. Head coach Chip Kelly said Vick and Foles will split first-team repetitions at the start of training camp, and the team will have a starter named by the time they begin game planning for Week 1.

Eagles | Will rotate QBs in camp

Tue, 23 Jul 2013 12:49:48 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly said the team will rotate quarterbacks in training camp until a starting QB emerges.

Fantasy Tip: Not much of a surprise here, as Michael Vick, Nick Foles and Matt Barkley will all get the chance to make a run at the starting job. As training camp and preseason games get played, there should be some clarity on what the Eagles are thinking in terms of who will ultimately start.

Eagles | Michael Vick could be roster casualty

Tue, 09 Jul 2013 16:11:54 -0700

In the opinion of writer Geoff Mosher, if Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly believes in Nick Foles and the long-term potential of Matt Barkley, Michael Vick could be cut.

Fantasy Tip: Plus, there's always Dennis Dixon to keep around thanks to his experience in this setup at Oregon. It's why the Eagles' QB situation should be avoided until the late backup stages in your draft. Foles could be a decent second option because he gets the ball out of his hands quickly, a must for Kelly's system. Vick is in more jeopardy than many think.

Raiders | Wanted Matt Barkley

Mon, 01 Jul 2013 10:27:30 -0700

The Oakland Raiders reportedly were planning on selecting QB Matt Barkley in the fourth round before the Philadelphia Eagles scooped him up earlier in the round. QB Tyler Wilson was the team's "fallback option."

Fantasy Tip: Matt Flynn lost his starting job with the Seattle Seahawks to a rookie last season, but the chances of that happening again this year to Wilson seem remote.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Matt Barkley likely will not be a factor in the team's starting quarterback competition during training camp but could be a key piece in the team's long-term future because he was impressive during organized team activities.

Eagles | Matt Barkley learning quickly

Fri, 21 Jun 2013 18:40:29 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur said Thursday, June 20, that QB Matt Barkley is progressing nicely, picking up the team's verbiage as he learns the playbook. "A lot of the way we communicate is different than what he did in college, but he's been able to do very nicely here in the first few weeks," Shurmur said.

Fantasy Tip: That being said, Barkley is still viewed as the No. 3 quarterback right now behind Michael Vick and Nick Foles. Right now, he is only worth a look in deeper long-term keeper fantasy formats, but he is one to watch during training camp and into the preseason.
