Description: Michael Vick has agreed to a one-year, $5 million contract with the Jets. SOURCE: Adam Schefter, ESPN
Insight: Vick wanted a starting job and now he has one. With Eric Decker in the fold, he'll have a pretty good receiver to throw to as well. Geno Smith's fantasy value will be zilch unless Vick gets hurt. Fortunately for Smith, Vick hasn't played an entire 16-game season since 2006.

Description: Free agent quarterback Michael Vick is scheduled to meet with the Jets on Friday. SOURCE: New York Daily News
Insight: As inconsistent as Vick can be, he'd be a huge improvement over Geno Smith. A one or two-year deal would make sense for both sides.
 
3/6/2014 5:05:00 PM
Description: Vikings running back Adrian Peterson tweeted that he wants to play with Michael Vick.
Insight: Vick was benched in favor of Nick Foles last season but he'd still be an improvement over Christian Ponder, the only Vikings quarterback currently under contract. Our own NFL editor John McMullen recently ranked Vick 28th on his list of the top-50 free agents.

Description: Philadelphia QB Michael Vick says he's still about a week or two away from returning. SOURCE: Albert Breer, NFL.com
Insight: Vick was inactive Sunday because of a hamstring injury. With Nick Foles playing some of the best football of his career right now (14 TD, 0 INT), there's no guarantee that Vick will win back the starting job once he's healthy enough to return.
 
11/4/2013 1:31:00 PM
Description: Eagles quarterback Michael Vick isn't likely to be ready to play in Week 10, according to beat reporter Jeff McLane.
Insight: Given Nick Foles' record-setting performance Sunday in Oakland, even if Vick were healthy we'd expect Foles under center against Green Bay.
 
10/28/2013 11:35:00 AM
Description: Eagles quarterback Michael Vick left Sunday's game against the Giants in the second quarter after aggravating his hamstring injury and coach Chip Kelly said on Monday that he didn't think he would be ready for Week 9.
Insight: Vick, who obviously wasn't 100 percent before re-injuring the hamstring, was ineffective in the time that he was on the field going just 6-for-9 for 31 yards and an interception. If Nick Foles isn't ready for return, then it would be wise to stay far away from all Eagles' players.

Description: Eagles quarterback Michael Vick left Sunday's game against the Giants in the second quarter after aggravating his hamstring injury.
Insight: Vick, who obviously wasn't 100 percent, was ineffective in the time that he was on the field going just 6-for-9 for 31 yards and an interception. His return is doubtful.
 
10/27/2013 11:42:00 AM
Description: Eagles quarterback Michael Vick (hamstring) took all the first-team reps in practice Tuesday and will start against New York.
Insight: Vick won't be 100 percent, but the Giants pass rush isn't as good as it has been in past seasons. I can play if I'm 80 [percent]." With six teams on a bye this week, Vick is a top-10 fantasy quarterback this week.
 
10/22/2013 7:13:00 PM
Description: Eagles quarterback Michael Vick (hamstring) took all the first-team reps in practice Tuesday, according to Reuben Frank of CSNPhilly.com.
Insight: There were reports that Matt Barkley took the reps, but Barkley said Vick took them. Vick said he's "optimistic" about playing in Week 8. "I've got a good chance. I can play if I'm 80 [percent]." With six teams on a bye this week, Vick is a top-10 fantasy quarterback against the Giants.
 
10/20/2013 7:08:00 PM
Description: Eagles quarterback Michael Vick could be back in Week 8, according to ProFootballTalk.com.
Insight: Vick missed his second straight game Sunday against Dallas due to a hamstring injury. Nick Foles played well in Week 6 but was awful Sunday and ended up leaving with a head injury. We should see Vick back as soon as he is healthy enough to play.

Description: Eagles quarterback Michael Vick won't start this week's game against the Cowboys. SOURCE: Geoff Mosher, Comcast Sportsnet Philadelphia
Insight: Vick's pulled hamstring isn't healing as fast he had hoped. Nick Foles should be a great fantasy option this week against the Cowboys' lousy secondary.
 
10/13/2013 11:38:00 AM
Description: Philadelphia quarterback Michael Vick is active, but not starting in Week 6 against Tampa Bay.
Insight: Nick Foles will make his first start of the season. Vick will be the "emergency" option.
 
10/12/2013 9:30:00 PM
Description: ESPN's Phil Sheridan says that Philadelphia will be without quarterback Michael Vick Sunday against the Buccaneers.
Insight: Nick Foles will make his first start of the season. Vick, who injured his hamstring in last week's win over the Giants, is hoping to be back for next week's game versus Dallas.
 
10/10/2013 3:40:00 PM
Description: Though Michael Vick probably won't play on Sunday, he expects to be back for Week 7's game against Dallas. SOURCE: Geoff Mosher, Comcast Sportsnet Philadelphia
Insight: Vick injured his hamstring in the second quarter of Sunday's win over the Giants. Assuming nothing changes between now and Sunday, Nick Foles will get the start versus Tampa Bay in Week 6.
 
10/7/2013 6:53:00 PM
Description: According to NBC's Pro Football Talk, Michael Vick's hamstring injury may cost him the next two games.
Insight: Vick won't play Sunday at Tampa Bay and there's a chance he may be out for Week 7's game against the Cowboys as well. Vick hasn't played a full 16-game slate since 2006 so you knew an injury was coming sooner or later. Nick Foles will lead the offense in his absence.
 
10/6/2013 3:04:00 PM
Description: Eagles quarterback Michael Vick is questionable to return to Sunday's game due to a hamstring injury.
Insight: Nick Foles came into the game in the second quarter and remained in the game after the half, so it doesn't look like Vick will be returning. Foles has played better anyway, completing 9-of-11 for 90 yards compared to 6-of-14 for 105 yards from Vick.
 
Hot9/15/2013 5:29:00 PM
Description: Two weeks into the Chip Kelly era, Eagles QB Michael Vick looks like an elite fantasy option.
Insight: Vick threw for 428 yards and two touchdowns on 24-of-37 passing and rushed for 23 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Chargers. Vick has six total touchdowns and zero picks over the first two games. He's a must-start in all leagues right now but it would be wise to shop him around before he gets injured.
 
9/9/2013 10:50:00 PM
Description: Michael Vick led the Eagles with 203 passing yards and two touchdowns Monday against the Redskins.
Insight: It's worth mentioning that Vick (nine rushes for 54 yards and one touchdown) did almost all of his damage in the first half and was mostly kept in check after half time. Still, fantasy owners have to be encouraged by how comfortable he looked in Chip Kelly's new offense. The Eagles are back home next week to take on the Chargers.
 
8/20/2013 11:59:00 AM
Description: As expected after two solid performances in the first two preseason games and a very good training camp, Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has won the starting job over Nick Foles.
Insight: Vick is just the best fit for Chip Kelly's offense. On Thursday he was better at getting the ball downfield than Foles or Matt Barkley and went 9-for-10 for 105 yards. His only blemish was an end-of-the-first half Hail Mary. He's 13-for-15 with a 113.2 QB rating over the two exhibition games and excited about the up tempo offense. Now if he can just stay healthy for 16 games ...
 
8/17/2013 2:45:00 PM
Description: Eagles beat writer Jimmy Kempski reports that quarterback Michael Vick took almost all the first team reps on Saturday.
Insight: Vick is just the best fit for Chip Kelly's offense. On Thursday he was better at getting the ball downfield than Nick Foles or Matt Barkley and he's certainly better in the read option portion of the offense. It didn't hurt that Vick went 9-for-10 for 105 yards and his only turnover was an end-of-the-first half Hail Mary, while Foles fumbled two snaps and threw an interception in the red zone. Even if it hasn't been announced the decision appears to have been made.
