Found September 16, 2013 on Fantasy Sports Locker Room:

The biggest take away for me this week concerns the Philadelphia offense for the second week running. Against the Chargers the offense was impressive yet again, with Michael Vick passing for 428 yards and the team adding 89 on the ground. The defense, however, struggled failing to contain their opponent for the second consecutive week. Philadelphia will be putting a lot on the shoulders of Vick, McCoy and Jackson this season as it doesn’t look like their defense will be putting any opponents away. All of that means, as it did this week, Vick is going to have to put the ball in the air late in games adding to his fantasy value and that of the players around him. The defense will leave Eagles fans anxious all season, but from a fake-fan’s perspective, it couldn’t be a better set up for the players on the other side of the ball.
