Michael Vick threw for 132 yards and two touchdowns - including a 67-yard score to T.J. Graham - as the New York Jets earned their second victory of the season against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday afternoon. Vick also managed to avoid turning the ball over for the second-straight week. (Source: The Star-Ledger
Fantasy Impact: Although the Jets won the game and Michael Vick didn't turn the ball over, a Jets signal caller is not the way to go in fantasy football for the rest of the year.

Rex Ryan announced after the New York Jets' 24-10 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs that Michael Vick will start in Week 10 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. "He'll start next week as long as he's healthy," the coach said in a postgame news conference. The news comes off the back of a performance in which Vick threw for 196 yards and a touchdown, and managed to stay turnover-free. (Source: NFL.com
Fantasy Impact: Although Vick only managed to lead the Jets to ten points, he did well enough to earn himself the starting job once more. But much like Geno Smith, Vick is one to avoid. Not only is he turnover prone, but he doesn't light up the scoreboard and certainly isn't worth the risk.

The Jets have announced Michael Vick as the starter for Week 9 against the Cheifs. The Jets would not indicate wether this was a permanent shift. (Source: NFL
Fantasy Impact: Vick will replace the slumping Geno Smith. As far as fantasy QBs go, this move means little as neither were particularly viable options. However, Chris Ivory may see his touches increase with greater uncertainty at the QB position.

With Geno Smith struggling and Rex Ryan on the hot seat, Michael Vick could take over at Quarterback. Rex Ryan needs to win now and the offense clearly needs a spark that Vick can provide.
Fantasy Impact: If Michael Vick does end up starting for the Jets, he is definitely worth a waiver wire addition. Vick will have a better offensive line now than he did in Philadelphia and is familiar with offense. Vick can end up being a solid QB2 and a good bye week replacement.

Rex Ryan responded to a question about using Michael Vick in Wildcat packages on Saturday by saying: "You're trying to win the game. If you think that's the best thing for your team, then absolutely you'll consider it." (Source: NFL.com
Fantasy Impact: This probably isn't worth reading too much into, but Michael Vick may be more than just Geno Smith's backup this season, and could see some playing time as a change-of-pace quarterback for New York. If this is the only way he is going to see the field, then Vick will most likely go undrafted. But if he shows promise and Smith's game crumbles, then Vick may have the chance to start for the Jets and could end up having some fantasy value further down the line. Expect him to start the season on waivers in most fantasy leagues.

Geno Smith looked sharp as he got about 76 percent of the first-team reps on the first day of training camp with 13 - compared to Michael Vick's four. Vick, working mostly with the second team completed two of five passes, with one interception. (Source: ESPN
Fantasy Impact: If training camp continues like this, then it would probably safe to assume that Geno Smith will be the Week 1 starting quarterback for the Jets. At this point, it wouldn't be a wise move to draft Michael Vick who - even if he manages to beat out Smith for the starting role - is still no guarantee to be a high-scoring fantasy quarterback.

With the bye-heavy week 9 upon us, sleepers will be more crucial than ever as all you fantasy owners look for waiver wire replacements for your benched starters. Atlanta, Buffalo, Chicago, Detroit, Green Bay, and Tennessee are all getting the week off, so that leaves a lot of roster spots to fill. These sleepers should be available in just about every league, so if you need a replacement, taking a...

Michael Vick (New Jersey Jets) QB: Mike Vick is my all time favorite Madden player. Having him as your QB was like cheating, hike the ball and just have him take off, 6 points every time. Well, he still has wheels and that’s why you’re going to want to start him. He may not throw […]
