Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles received 21 snaps with the first-team offense during organized team activities Monday, May 20, while QB Michael Vick received 15 snaps.
Fantasy Tip: Foles and Vick have been splitting work with the starting offense since offseason workouts have begun. Foles likely would be a weak backup in fantasy leagues if he wins the job. Vick would be a borderline fantasy starter or a solid backup if he wins the job.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick looks motivated to succeed this year. "(Vick's) noticeably bigger and enthused about the offense," Philadelphia Inquirer's Zach Berman writes. Vick was in a system that had less designed runs for him last year, but the offense under new head coach Chip Kelly could play better to his strengths with an improved offensive line. Vick took snaps with the first team during organized team activities this week, and he's the favorite to start in Week 1 over QB Nick Foles.
Fantasy Tip: Vick will see some competition from Foles, but it appears to be Vick's job to lose during training camp. Kelly's new scheme should make the most of Vick's mobility and playmaking abilities, but his production will hinge on whether he can reduce his turnovers and stay healthy. With a late-round pick, he's worth gambling on as a QB2.

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.

Thu, 09 May 2013 14:10:15 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin said QB Michael Vick has gotten most of the first-team reps with QB Nick Foles getting first-team reps sprinkled in.
Fantasy Tip: No surprise here with how the snaps are being split at this point, but the real test will be how they are split in training camp and preseason games. For now, it is safe to assume Vick has the edge on the starting job, and that should be reflected on your draft boards.

Florida State QB EJ Manuel has seen his draft stock soar of the final week heading into the 2013 NFL Draft, and he was considered a second-day pick that could fall into the third or fourth round a few months ago. The Philadelphia Eagles, Cleveland Browns, Buffalo Bills and New York Jets have shown interest and they all pick within the first 15 picks. "They want me pretty bad," Manuel said of the Eagles. Manuel would be an extreme reach for Philadelphia's fourth overall pick, though, since they already have QBs Michael Vick and Nick Foles on roster. However, some analysts think Manuel will be gone by the Eagles' 35th overall pick in the second round. The Jets also have two first-round picks, the Browns pick sixth overall and the Bills have the eighth selection.

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly said Tuesday, April 16, following his first practice with the team he is in no rush to name a starting quarterback for the 2013 season. Kelly wants to create competition between QBs Michael Vick, Nick Foles and even Dennis Dixon. "There wasn't one set guy that just went with the ones the entire day," Kelly said. "All those guys got an opportunity to roll through ... It's April 16, so we're not playing until next September. We're going to use the full available time for us to make a full evaluation of what it is. I think it fosters competition. I think those guys love competition. That's why they're in that position, and they know it."
Tue, 16 Apr 2013 11:57:21 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles QB's Michael Vick and Nick Foles both split time taking first team reps at the team's minicamp Tuesday, April 16, according to head coach Chip Kelly. Kelly said that QB Dennis Dixon even got a first team rep.
Fantasy Tip: Keep an eye on how the first team reps are split the rest of the summer as you start to put together your draft board, although it would not be a surprise if the Eagles kept quiet on what their plans were for the position.
Wed, 03 Apr 2013 09:43:02 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie said he was impressed with QB Nick Foles during his limited playing time last season and he will have an opportunity to compete for the starting quarterback job in 2013. "I think it's to be determined but Nick showed an awful lot before he broke his hand," Lurie said. "Poise and accuracy. We're real excited about Nick. I think the best thing is to say to be determined how it's going to work, but he's going to have a great opportunity. He's really bright, he's a very hard worker, he has all the intangibles. We just have to see how he can maximize it or not."

I think this is a different situation than we've had the past couple of years where we had quarterbacks. We like the player. ... We're trying to accumulate good, young players. We're not in the business of trying to rid of good, young players," Roseman said.
Fri, 15 Feb 2013 10:59:45 -0800

Both of them have started in this league."

Wed, 13 Feb 2013 04:22:04 -0800
Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly said he likes his quarterback situation heading into 2013, with the experience of QB Michael Vick and the youth of QB Nick Foles. "You need to be built for the long haul. There is a skill set that Nick has that really excites me about him," Kelly said. "I think we've got an older quarterback in Michael who is 32 now, and have a younger guy in Nick who is going into his second year, and I think it's the ideal situation for us moving forward this season."

Wed, 30 Jan 2013 12:23:28 -0800

Mon, 21 Jan 2013 12:29:40 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles general manager Howie Roseman said he believes QB Nick Foles is someone with a lot of potential; however, he is far from a finished product and the team will continue to evaluate him. "Nick (Foles) has a lot of promise," Roseman said. "But I think the analogy I would draw there is that when you watch baseball, you see sometimes young starting pitchers go through the lineup one time and get them out pretty quickly because there's no book on them. Or play their opponents, and the same thing. They go through the first time pretty well. So we've got to just make sure that we're evaluating Nick, the full package of Nick. He's got a lot of good tools. But that and the coach are obviously the two most important things for the franchise."
Thu, 27 Dec 2012 05:14:02 -0800
Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (hand) hopes he will have an opportunity to be the team's starting quarterback in 2013; however, Foles also understands his 1-5 as Eagles starter wasn't good enough. "Starting quarterback, you have to put (up) more points at whatever cost to win the game," Foles said. "If you look at it like that, which I do, I didn't do my job, and that's something I need to keep working on." Foles finished the season with 1,699 passing yards while completing 60.8 percent of his passes for six touchdowns and five interceptions. He rushed for one touchdown and lost three fumbles.

Mon, 03 Dec 2012 07:11:44 -0800
The Philadelphia Eagles could go into 2013 with the tandem of RB LeSean McCoy and RB Bryce Brown at the running back position. The team won't likely move Brown in the offseason unless they get an offer they can't refuse, because the idea of having a two-headed rushing attack next season is an intriguing one. The Eagles will need everything they can get on the ground if QB Nick Foles is the quarterback next season.

Head coach Andy Reid said there is no truth to that. "There's nothing to that," Reid said. "I've talked with Michael and Michael is good. I don't know where things get started but Michael is fine with it. He understands that everything is in the best interest of him right now and making sure that he's ready to go." Reid maintains Vick will start once he is healthy to play.
