Eagles receiver Riley Cooper corralled five passes for 139 yards and three touchdowns Sunday at Oakland.Fantasy Spin:In Nick Foles' three starts this season, Cooper has 347 yards and four touchdowns on 15 catches. In Michael Vick's six starts, he has 10 catches for 106 yards and one touchdown. After throwing seven touchdown passes Sunday, Foles is likely to hold onto Philadelphia's starting job the rest of the season, so Cooper could turn into a decent fantasy option in deeper leagues.

Bleacher Report Writer Slaps You in the Face with Stupidity

Nick Foles just completed 22 of 28 passes for 406 yards, and 7 touchdowns against a defense ESPN had ranked as the 5th best in the NFL coming into the game.

How Michael Vick Hustled Two Franchises into Three Max Contracts

Let me start by saying that Michael Vick is one of my favorite players in the NFL, one of my favorite players in NFL history really. I have a framed autographed 8x10 photo of Vick from his years at Virginia Tech, most likely an illegally obtained and subsequently resold on eBay item that could have gotten Vick in trouble during his college years, which gives it even more value to...

WATCH: All Seven Touchdown Passes By Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles

There is a lot of talk in and around Philly about the need to find a franchise quarterback. Even if he can stay healthy it isn't Michael Vick anymore; he's too old. Matt Barkley was drafted with those aspirations, but has looked far from being NFL ready. That leaves Nick Foles. After a dreadful performance against Dallas there was not a lot of confidence in him but...
