Vick better than Delhomme

Postby First & Goal » Fri Sep 15, 2006 12:25 pm

Depending on your league scoring, Vick could be a better fantasy QB than del homme.

It all depends on the ratio of points per rushing yard vs. points per passing yard.

In an NFL.com league (1 pt/10 rushing yard, 1 pt/25 passing yards) Vick actually ends up as a slightly better fantasy QB. Again, it all depends on your scoring.

Just thought I'd share, as I'm starting Vick over Delhomme at least until Steve Smith gets back.

When you decided that Vick is better than Delhomme with this scoring set up, did you include TD's?

Yes, I figured 1.56 TDs/game for delhomme (last year's average) and 1.4TDs/game for Vick (again last year's average).

Also figured in 1.375 ints/fuml per game for delhomme and 1.2 ints/fuml per game for Vick.

I bet you didn't calculate that Vick's injury risk is about 1000 times higher than Delhomme's.....

Vick is too inconsistent, it has always been his biggest flaw. He'll be a solid fantasy QB one week, last week for instance, and then he'll have a terrible week the next and you get to the point where you don't know when to play him and when not to play him. I like to have a more consistent option at QB moreso than a huge hit or miss guy.

and i'll bet you that bad week comes this week. he has had some horrid games vs tampa in the past as they are one of the best d's at stopping him.

I bet you aren't calculating the impact of no SS for Delhomme. What if he goes 4 games? What if he comes back and is not as good as last year? Delhomme wasn't a total FF rockstar last year. There's a chance Vick could be more valuable this year than Delhomme. I'd still take Jake over Vick for my FF team, but I don't think this is as far-fetched as you're making it seem.
