2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
Despite averaging the second highest FPts/G average of his career, Vick was considered a bit of a bust in 2011. At 23.2 PPG, Vick averaged 6.5 FPts/G fewer than his monster 2010 season and it doesnít take a rocket scientist to figure out why. After scoring nine touchdowns on the ground in 2010, Vick found the end zone just once. However, Vick himself may have been the biggest cause for his lack of scores as he turned the ball over repeatedly, coughing up 14 interceptions and losing four fumbles in the 13 games he appeared in. Otherwise, Vick put together a solid season setting career-highs in completions (253), attempts (423) and passing yards (3,303). In 2012, his success will depend on two factors: a willingness to avoid hits and improved decision-making. Vick can still run the ball (589 rushing yards last season) and his passing is light years ahead of what it was in his younger days, although not quite on par with the upper echelon quarterbacks in the league. He seemed to get the message about avoiding hits when he returned from a rib injury in Week 14 last season, with his rushing attempts dropping from 7.2 before the injury to 2.8 after the injury. And therein lies the quandary with Vick as your starting fantasy quarterback. He needs to run the ball effectively to be a stud but that increases his risk of injury, which takes him out of the lineup. Look for Vick to improve on his 2011 fantasy production but not match his monster season in 2010, leaving him just outside the top five as a fantasy option in 2012. Keep in mind that drafting Vick necessitates grabbing an upper tier backup since itís pretty much certain he will miss time at some point in the season.

Comment: Vick (thumb, ribs) has played 12 snaps in the preseason and has been injured twice.

News From The Past 90 Days
Michael Vick announced as Week 9 starter     -- Mon Oct 27 5:55 pm --

Geno Smith benched after throwing three first-quarter picks
The New York Jets made the only move they could reasonably make at quarterback for Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium. They are replacing the struggling Geno Smith with veteran Michael Vick. The Chiefs last season faced several quarterbacks making their first start after replacing a starter who was either injured or ineffective. This is the first such instance this season and it allows Vick to cross paths once again with Chiefs coach Andy Reid. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: Vick was only marginally better than Smith in Week 8, failing to spot wide-open underneath receivers on several occasions while throwing an interception and committing two fumbles. In theory, Vick's ability to extend plays should give Percy Harvin and Eric Decker more time to get open, but Vick also appears to have regressed as a passer. The Jets' best chance to win in Week 9 is to ride Chris Ivory and the running game as long as possible.
Will NYJ turn to Michael Vick?     -- Tue Sep 23 10:15 am --

Geno Smith's mistakes may cost him starting job
Geno Smith had his second multi-turnover game of the season, punctuated by a nightmarish pick-six 32 seconds in that set the tone in a 27-19 loss to the Bears. Smithís second interception came in the end zone on an ill-advised pass intended for David Nelson. It was just another blow on a night filled with self-inflicted wounds that dropped Ryanís team to 1-2, and has coaches considering it may be time to plug in Michael Vick. (New York Daily News)

FF Today's Take: Ryan didnít rule out the possibility that Vick, who played one snap against the Bears, could become more involved. From a fantasy perspective, it's not a terrible idea to grab Vick as a medium-upside stash in deeper formats and two-QB leagues.
