How Does Michael Vick's Absence Affect Other Eagles' Fantasy, Roster Values

Michael Vick may be shut down for the rest of the 2012 NFL season.

Per Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports:

Two sources said Monday morning that it's a pretty strong bet that, barring an odd change in circumstances, Vick will be "rested" for the remainder of the season by Reid and the coaching staff. In place of Vick, rookie Nick Foles will start, and the sources believe Reid will use the development of Foles as a springboard to keep his job as the Eagles' coach.

"I'm 99 percent sure that's exactly what you're going to see happen," a source said Monday morning.

This also comes as no surprise, because Michael Vick was knocked out of the game on Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys. And according to ESPN.com:

Michael Vick sustained a "pretty significant concussion" Sunday and likely won't be medically cleared when the Philadelphia Eagles resume practice this week, coach Andy Reid said.

All that said: Does Vick's potential absence put a damper on the rest of the Philadelphia Eagles offense as well as fantasy football? In short, no.

Let's go in depth and figure out why.
