Michael Vick took the field for the Eagles in their second game of the season as their starting quarterback. He hasn't done that for any team in over two years.

However, he did not disappoint.

Vick went 21-of-34 for 284 yards and two touchdown passes with no interceptions that day and showed the world that he has plenty left in the tank. In fact, he looked better than he did before going to jail.

That start was followed by an equally impressive performance against the Jaguars in what turned out to be a rout in Jacksonville. Vick put up big numbers once again that day. He went 17-of-31, 291 yards, three TD passes and once again no interceptions.

After getting off to another great start against the rival 'Skins in Week 4, Vick took a shot to the ribs and has been inactive since.

Despite the Eagles' 2-1 record during his absence, head coach Andy Reid is putting Vick back in the starting spot this week.

So, once again healthy and ready to take the field for the Eagles against the Colts on Sunday, what can we expect from the ultimate dual-threat quarterback? If you have him, start him. If you don't, fear him.

He's only faced Indy once, an abysmal performance in a Falcons loss, but that was some time ago. This time he has a seemingly healthy DeSean Jackson to throw to down field.

Couple that with the fact that Reid holds the longest active streak for wins after the bye-week and you can expect a big performance out of the three-time Pro Bowl QB.

The Colts pass defense has been surprisingly solid despite once again losing paper mache safety Bob Sanders, but they have not had to also account for the QB scrambling.

Vick has big potential this Sunday. The Colts also come off a Monday showdown against the Texans and may not yet be fully recovered.

All these factors will allow Vick to put on a show for the viewing public, and put up big numbers for your fantasy team. A big thumbs up this week for Vick. 

Start Him.
