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.
Hmmm, here are Vicks actual numbers from the two games last year:
21/38, 306 yds, 2TD, 4 Ru for 17 yds.
16/26, 161 yds, 2TD, 11 Ru for 63 yds.
In 2004 he had a bit rougher time but did rush for more than 70 yds both times.
Vick has had success against TB especially last year. Now that he is more familiar with the offense, is being allowed to do more things (run/scramble) and it is early (Dunn isn't banged up yet) so I expect Vick to outperform a SS-less Delhomme.
