Eagles' new offense will fit QB Michael Vick 'very well'

More thoughts from ESPN's Ron Jaworski!
What do we really know about the offense that Eagles head coach Chip Kelly is bringing to the NFL? We think it will be run at a fast pace and structured around a dynamic running game. But really, we don't know what we will specifically see or even if it will work. But Jaworski, after watching Kelly's offense at the University of Oregon, thinks it will be a fit for quarterback Michael Vick @MikeVick.
"Here's the positive as the Eagles transition to Kelly's shotgun-spread attack: Vick was outstanding in the two-minute offense last season with a QB rating of 98." Jaworski said Tuesday, via Rotoworld. "I am going to be fascinated to see Vick in Chip Kelly's up-tempo speed offense."

Fantasy Analysis:

Of course, if Kelly is to believed, Vick isn't even his starting quarterback yet. That will be decided in training camp, but everyone expects Vick to win the gig ahead of Nick Foles @NFoles8 and/or Matt Barkley. You should not rely on Vick as your fantasy starter, but as a QB2, Vick, much like Kelly's offense, is very interesting this season.
