Vick's Value... Justified or Too Much Hype?

It's that time of year - looks like most fantasy draft 'cheat sheets' have Michael Vick comfortably positioned as one of the top three QBs. I picked him in 2002 for my fantasy team and wound up on the good end of several blowouts, thanks largely to his rushing yardage and scores.

We all know he's a gifted athlete and special player who is quite valuable to his team, but I can't help but feel a little gun-shy of him this year... how's he going to fare in the West Coast offense? And will the broken leg still be in his head? What do you guys think?

this is the redskins website i am more worried about Brunnell and Ramsey looking stupid than Vick. Hell if anyone is over valued its Patricvk Ramsey we could have gotten a good DE and he couldve been in Miami with the rest of the crack heads. Cant blame Joe gibbs cant blame spurrier. Until he shows me he can play QB in the NFL I say cut Ramsey cut Ramsey or trade him.

Dude... he asked a simple question. If you don't want to answer it, there's a little X in the top right corner of your browser.

Vick is oh so talented. If he didn't get hurt last year the Falcons offense would have been awesome; Reeves might still be coaching (the defense still sucked) and we wouldn't be talking about the West Coast offense.

The WC offense isn't ideal for opening up running lanes for Vick to scramble through, and it will make him work on his accuracy big time. It may not make the best use of his God-given talents, but it will help him stay healthy. He is talented and physically gifted enough to be successful in any system that's not the fun and gun.

I picked him up in the 2nd round of one of my drafts and I thought he was a steal that late, I understand there's some concern about him playing in a new system, but the guy is a fantasy stud regardless.

You know he's going to run for at least 700 yards and at least 5-7 TD's, so he's almost like having another RB. Anything he does through the air is gravy in my mind. He's still got alot to learn in the passing game, but he's getting there. I'd put him in my top 3 FF QB's along with Manning and Culpepper.

Vick's got all the tools. He's for real, though he needs a decent team around him, like any other QB.

JoeTheisman: Give Ramsey a few more weeks before casting him to the wolves (or the dolphins, or whatever). We've all seen him play poorly, but we've all seen him play well. Maybe a few SEASONS under Gibbs and co is what he needs? With an arm like that, he's worth the risk.

Vick's good.... but get Peyton and Dante FIRST. They are a lower risk.

Culpepper had a big year last year and won't repeat. Who's running opposite of Randy Moss? A man named Marcus Robinson. Ever heard of him? Don't think so. HIs biggest help will be klessiner and that amazing 3 man RB core they have.

I still feel Vick's a strong pick at QB.

Who was playing across from Moss last year? Whoever it was I can guarantee Robinson is a more accomplished WR.

Yup... normally a decent WR, however he's been hurt and Tice has been trying to motivate him by threatening to give Burleson the starting spot.

Moss did ok with guys like Nate Burleson and Kelly Campbell, so I think he'll manage with Marcus Robinson.

who said they have never heard of marcus robinson. hes not a bad receiver by anymeans. Thats definitly an upgrade at number 2 for them. and for that matter, whats it matter. You think theres a time when Moss doesnt have two guys on him? I dont care if you have TO next to moss. you still put two guys on moss and he still prodcues. Daunte will have a great year as long as the Randy Factor or whatever its called is still there. Plus the Vikings have three backs taht could start for most teams. Their running game has been good in recent years, definitly a big enough threat that you cant consider moss the only guy on that team. Daunte will get his stats and put up big numbers

Vick is loaded with potential and has shown flashes of brilliance. But it hasn't been consistent for an extended period of time yet. No question he's going to be great but at this very moment I think I'd rather have Culpepper.
