Michael Vick News & Advice

It once looked like Michael Vick's career as a Philadelphia Eagle was over. Now he has received a new lease on his NFL career from Chip Kelly, and Vick seems to know it.
Michael Vick AdviceNotes | Articles
If he is named the starter for game #1 then he is a nice high risk, high reward player in Chip Kelly's offense.
Impossible to rank Vick as anything less than a QB1 despite injury risk. Chip Kelly's offense could help this Eagle soar to new heights.
He could be the backup come game one, but he still brings a ton of upside if he's starting. His ranking will rise if he starts.
The one thing keeping Vick on the roster is that he has the skill set to run Chip Kelly's uptempo offense. If Kelly wants to stay in the league, he needs to go in another direction. Vick has never shown he can stay healthy, I doubt he will be able to stay healthy next year at the age of 33. The Eagles drafted QB Matt Barkley, so if Vick struggles out of the gate, he could be shown the bench early.
Vick has a chance to be a key bounce-back player of the year. Still, he is no longer a spring chicken and can be relied on as nothing more than your second option at quarterback this fantasy season.
Front-runner for starting gig; potential
Is he even Chip Kelly's guy? And will it matter with his inability to take care of the ball or stay healthy? Nobody knows for sure.

Michael Vick looked to be reborn in 2010. He stepped in for a concussed Kevin Kolb in a week one meeting with the Green Bay Packers and dazzled. From that point on, he was the no bones about it starter, and he left the NFL and fantasy worlds enthralled. Oddly enough, his magical season came

Let me be clear right up front, I am in no way advocating that you draft Michael Vick as the starting QB for your fantasy team. We’re far from knowing whether he’ll even start for Philadelphia. But, I believe Vick will start, and if this ends up being the case, as tired as you may be
