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.
Tue, 29 Oct 2013 08:27:01 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (concussion) returned to practice Tuesday, Oct. 29. He and QB Matt Barkley are splitting repetitions.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Sun, 20 Oct 2013 12:46:40 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (head) left the Week 7 game with a head injury. QB Matt Barkley has entered the game.
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.
Thu, 10 Oct 2013 08:53:40 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly said the team knew QB Matt Barkley (shoulder) wasn't fully healed in the offseason, and his arm has gotten much stronger.
Sun, 06 Oct 2013 08:31:55 -0700
The Philadelphia Eagles have declared DL Damion Square, OT Dennis Kelly, FB Emil Igwenagu, QB Matt Barkley, OG Matt Tobin, SS Patrick Chung, CB Shaun Prater inactive for Week 5.
Sun, 29 Sep 2013 12:10:04 -0700
The Philadelphia Eagles have declared DL Damion Square, OT Dennis Kelly, FB Emil Igwenagu, QB Matt Barkley, OG Matt Tobin, SS Patrick Chung, CB Shaun Prater inactive for Week 4.
Thu, 19 Sep 2013 16:12:32 -0700

Mon, 09 Sep 2013 14:50:09 -0700
The Philadelphia Eagles have declared OT Dennis Kelly, FB Emil Igwenagu, QB Matt Barkley, OG Matt Tobin, CB Shaun Prater, DL Vinny Curry inactive for Week 1.
Thu, 08 Aug 2013 09:38:11 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles QB Matt Barkley is expected to play the second and third quarters in team's first preseason game, according to head coach Chip Kelly.
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.
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.
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.
Mon, 22 Jul 2013 12:46:03 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles QB Matt Barkley said he expects to compete with QBs Michael Vick and Nick Foles for the starting quarterback during training camp.
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.
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.
Sun, 30 Jun 2013 08:15:44 -0700
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.
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.
Sat, 15 Jun 2013 08:54:57 -0700
Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles QB Matt Barkley signed a four-year deal worth $2.739 million. The deal includes a $497,028 signing bonus as well as a $20,000 workout bonus each season.
Fri, 14 Jun 2013 13:29:48 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles QB Matt Barkley showed good command in the huddle and had the arm strength to make several difficult throws during minicamp. Barkley will still be a candidate for the starting quarterback job when training camp starts.
Thu, 13 Jun 2013 12:35:00 -0700
The Philadelphia Eagles agreed to terms with QB Matt Barkley on a four-year contract Thursday, June 13. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Fri, 07 Jun 2013 09:40:29 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly indicated that he's unlikely to name a starting quarterback until sometime after training camp starts in late July. "We have an understanding of their athletic ability and how they run, change direction and things like that. But there are still a lot of things to be evaluated when you put the pads on," Kelly said. "It's still a physical game. A lot of guys look great in shorts and T shirts, then they disappear when you put the pads on. Until we get the pads on, we can't tell." QBs Michael Vick and Nick Foles split repetitions with the first team 50-50 through minicamps. QB Matt Barkley worked with the third team throughout camp, but Kelly said the personnel groupings mean little so far.
Fantasy Tip: Vick has voiced his frustration with the fact that Kelly has yet to name him the starter over Foles, and he won't get his wish to have a decision before training camp. Vick will have to get his wish by performing on the field, and we expect he will. He'll be a high-risk, high-reward backup that can be had later in drafts.
Mon, 13 May 2013 12:04:22 -0700
Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly said QBs Michael Vick and Nick Foles split reps with the first-team offense during organized team activities Monday, May 13.
Fantasy Tip: Vick and Foles likely will be involved in a competition for the starting quarterback job leading up to the start of the regular season. Vick would be a borderline fantasy starter or a solid backup if he wins the job while Foles would be a weak No. 2 or No. 3 quarterback if he won the job. Matt Barkley could also get involved in the competition at some point.
Sun, 12 May 2013 12:11:30 -0700

Sat, 11 May 2013 10:13:02 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles QB Matt Barkley said he will make himself fit into whichever offense head coach Chip Kelly wants to use. "You know, I'll make it fit," he said. "It doesn't matter what plays we run, I'm going to find a way to help this team out, and I know Coach Kelly has a way of working things out as well in terms of how he schemes and how he calls plays, so I'm not worried. I'm just worried about the here and now and what I can do right now."
Fri, 03 May 2013 08:08:16 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles QB Matt Barkley said he is confident he can come in and make an immediate impact for the team. "Without a doubt, I have confidence that I can come in right away and make an impact, or just help the team in whatever way I can," Barkley said. Barkley added he believes he can be a good fit in new head coach Chip Kelly's system.

Sat, 27 Apr 2013 09:05:42 -0700
The Philadelphia Eagles have selected Southern California QB Matt Barkley with the 98th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.
Fantasy Tip: This selection appears to be curious because Barkley has limited mobility and the team's offense likely will be using a more athletic quarterback under head coach Chip Kelly. The team would have to change the offense if they want Barkley to play, but Barkley likely will not start in the near future. He does not have any fantasy value at this point.
Fri, 26 Apr 2013 20:53:09 -0700

Sun, 21 Apr 2013 17:02:46 -0700
West Virginia QB Geno Smith could easily fall out of the Top 10 of the 2013 NFL Draft. Where his slide ends up from there will likely impact where Southern California QB Matt Barkley, North Carolina State QB Mike Glennon, Florida State QB EJ Manuel and Syracuse QB Ryan Nassib wind up.
Sun, 21 Apr 2013 16:54:33 -0700
The Buffalo Bills could use their first-round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft on one of two quarterbacks - Syracuse QB Ryan Nassib or Southern California QB Matt Barkley. It is believed to be a two-horse race at this point. The Bills select eighth overall.
Fantasy Tip: It wouldn't be shocking to see Nassib land with the Bills. Remember, his former college coach, Doug Marrone, is now the head coach with the Bills. Even if he were to win a starting job, Nassib would be only be worth drafting as a No. 3 fantasy QB.
