Eagles have three top-20-caliber fantasy QBs

Matt Moore appears to be the Carolina Panthers' starting quarterback since Jake Delhomme was dumped. A.J. Feeley or maybe the yet-to-be-drafted Sam Bradford could be the St. Louis Rams' quarterback. And good luck figuring out what the Cleveland Browns, Buffalo Bills and Oakland Raiders are doing, or the situation with the Minnesota Vikings if a certain someone walks away and retires (as if). Basically, there are a number of NFL teams that could use a quarterback, but fantasy football owners are probably not the least bit interested in who leads those teams (other than the Vikings) at this point.

Of course, that would certainly change if the Philadelphia Eagles decided to share the wealth. For now, they continue to hoard what I believe are three fantasy-relevant quarterbacks as if they can actually use all of them. Well, fantasy football owners could sure use them, as all three could be top-20 options. This is the equivalent of being in a fantasy league in which you can activate three quarterbacks at once. Wouldn't that be nice?

I wasn't surprised the Eagles picked up the option year on Michael Vick. He has some trade value, and the Eagles obviously feel they can wait for precisely the kind of offer they expect. I admit I wasn't impressed with how Vick looked in 2009 with the Eagles, but then again, he received so few snaps, it's tough to tell with that small sample size. I'd like to see what he could do, though. I wouldn't call Vick a fantasy starter if he ends up on the Bills or Rams, but I also can't say I'm all that impressed with non-top-10 quarterbacks to begin with. I'm willing to take a chance. But if he stays in Philadelphia, he has no fantasy value. He's third on the depth chart.
