If one player has a lot to prove this season, Michael Vick is that man. The Eagles are coming off of so much disappointment that they lost their Franchise coach. The offense is the same offense the Oregon Ducks ran, which is perfect for dual threat QBs. If you had to make an all-time list of the best dual threat QBs of our time, Vick has to be #1 if you take out the mental mistakes. Jeremy Maclin and Desean Jackson still make up an ELITE WR duo.
Freeman is in a contract season. He also has an ELITE defense behind him for the first time in his career. This is Josh's best chance to earn a HUGE payday. Mike Williams and Vincent Jackson are two great HR WRs and Doug Martin demands everyone's attention. Big season for the Bucs in 2013.
  
Taylor Smith

Vick is the biggest wild card of them all. If he buys into Chip Kelly's system and grasps it well from the start, he's capable of being the No. 1 player in fantasy, as we've seen before. On the other hand, he may underwhelm from the start and not even be Philly's QB on opening day. There really isn't much middle ground with this guy.
Freeman got off to a great start last season, as he had 18 TD passes and just five picks through the first nine games of the year. Then, he completely tanked to finish the year, and the Bucs' playoff odds did so along with him. Where's the 2010 Josh Freeman that threw just six INTs all year?
  
Raju Byfield
Win My Fantasy League
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.
Fresh off of a 4,000 yard, 27 TD season being ranked this low is a testament to strength at the QB position
  
Jeff Boggis

Washington gave up the 8th most fantasy points to Quarterbacks last season with 19.4.
New York Jets gave up the 8th fewest fantasy points to Quarterbacks last season with 14.1.

He missed both 'skins games in 2012, but he averaged 2 TDs, 280 passing and 28 rushing yards against them in '11.

This is possibly way too low. Tempering expectations until we see the Chip offense in action.
 
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
The new look Eagles under Chip Kelly looked sharp in preseason and Michael Vick seemed comfortable in their offense totaling 454 yards and two touchdowns in around 4 quarters of game time. I'll be starting him this week even though he's always a risk to get hurt and this offense has yet to be tested in a real game. I believe his upside outweighs the risk. It doesn't hurt that Washington gave up the third most passing yards and fifth most fantasy points to quarterbacks last season.
 
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
I think Vick is in for a big year, but will it start on the road against an underrated Redskins defense?
Tough road matchup to get things going. Not a big fan of Freeman to begin with, so don't love him here.
  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
After a tantalizing preseason it's time to see what Vick can do in Chip Kelly's offense. Against the Redskins who struggled vs. pass last year, and who he has had a lot of success against in an Eagles uniform.
 
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Redskins allowed the 4th most fantasy points to running backs last year, I expect the MNF game to be a shootout and for Vick to be a borderline QB1.
