Eagles | Michael Vick leading competition

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.
