A year ago right now, Michael Vick was being considered as a top five overall fantasy football draft pick.
Now, he is not even being considered amongst the top five overall fantasy quarterbacks; his overall current ADP is just a remarkable 45th overall.
2011 was a step back for the entire Eagles franchise, not just Vick.
Still, he set a career high in passing attempts (423), yards (3,303), and third highest passing TD total (18). Vick’s 76 carries were his lowest season total as a starter, yet his 7.8 ypc was his 2nd highest.
589 yards from your QB on the ground? That’s 45 YPG, son, as good as many a RB #3.
Sure, w/Vick you’re always going to worry about him missing games. That’s why you grab a QB like Carson Palmer, Ryan Fitzpatrick or Josh Freeman to use in Vick’s week 7 bye or for general use, post-injury, should one occur.
Wake up– Don’t sleep on Mike Vick in 2012.
