Fantasy Football Sit 'Em/Start 'Em: What To Do With Michael Vick

You may have drafted Michael Vick for your fantasy football team somewhere in the first three rounds. And why wouldn’t you? He plays with a talented offense, can run for points, and has a terrific arm. And when he’s on, he’s nearly unstoppable. But Vick struggled at times a year ago and certainly struggled in Week 1 when he tossed four interceptions.

Still, Vick was a solid fantasy performer given he threw for 317 yards and two scores, but the consensus seems to be that he’s a dangerous play this week because today he faces a good Baltimore team. So is it time to hit the panic button and bench him? No way.

Expect Vick to protect the football and play a very different game than that of a week ago. The Eagles should be more reliant upon the run which may keep his yardage totals down, but that should also allow Vick to play a much cleaner game. When you take a guy early in your draft, one bad performance shouldn’t alter your lineup. So stick with Vick (or anyone else you drafted early) for at least one more week.
