2013 Outlook: Quality Backup

Last updated on Aug-20-2013 by Ben Standig

Update (8-20): The Eagles announced that Vick would start the regular season opener against the Redskins. In two preseason games, the mobile left-hander is 13 of 15 for 199 yards with one touchdown and one explainable interception. Seeing as Vick is an obvious injury risk, backup Nick Foles will likely play at some point. Seeing as Vick's running ability makes him a tremendous fit for Philadelphia's new offense, he makes for a high-upside and arguably ideal fantasy backup.

Profile - We have a potential boom or bust situation here, though that pretty much sums up Vick's fantasy worth the past couple of seasons. If Chip Kelly's fast breaking offensive plans work, the mobile left-hander could post monster numbers both on the ground and through the air. That's also a big if seeing as Vick, who threw for 12 touchdown passes and 10 interceptions last season, also missed six games and hasn't played a full season since he returned to the NFL in 2009. On the other hand, Kelly's schemes could free Vick up for more running lanes and greater production while offering better protection due to quick reacting plays. In 12 team leagues, every owner should have a strong weekly start at QB, meaning the backup can largely be about potential and Vick has always oozed that. In that sense, Vick makes for a rather intriguing QB2 option playing in this system. That is provided he can stay healthy and fend off Nick Foles for the starting job in Philly. Heading into training camp, it is unclear whether either of those scenarios is possible. If he is the Eagles' opening game QB, then at least the stats should be there for as long as he plays.
