Vick expected to play: With everyone keeping a close eye on Michael Vick, most parties around the Eagles think the quarterback will be ready to go for Sunday’s game against the Giants. As long as he’s in the Eagles lineup, he should be in yours. It also means that all of his favorite weapons — DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin and LeSean McCoy — should be in your lineup as well.
Simpson “very doubtful” for Sunday: It’s looking more likely that Jerome Simpson won’t be on the field when the Bengals play the 49ers on Sunday, due to an ongoing police investigation. With Simpson out of the lineup, it will mean more targets for A.J. Green and Jermaine Gresham. It also means Andre Caldwell should see more snaps, but his value is limited.
Manningham likely out: Another day that Mario Manningham wasn’t on the practice field and it’s looking more likely that the Giants will be short a receiver for Sunday against the Eagles. Even if he played, Manningham was going to face a tough matchup against the Philly DB duo of Nnamdi Asomugha and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. That doesn’t make his replacement, Brandon Stokley, that attractive of an option for most fantasy owners.
