no. And while he was viable last year (I had him in one league, and without breaking it down too much, he was so up and down, you never could predict his good days), top 10 isn't really that big of an honor, considering the size of most leagues. If you aren't like top 5, in a 10 team league you are an average starting QB basically...
The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Brian Dawkins played in second grade.

Could someone post the new default scoring?

It looks to me like they're moving closer to the norm, which they were far from before, and where Vick is far from a top QB. The real question is why the heck was anyone using yahoo's awful default scoring of the past? I didn't think there was still anyone that used that nonsense.

It will help him. He's still not going to be #1 though.

He was number 2 last year with his insane rushing season. Is it possible that he'll be good again? yeah for sure. Will he be consistent? no. That makes him a great number 2 if you need him. In fact I used to last year in week 15 when Marc Bulger had a bad matchup and it worked out great on both calls. You just can't rely on him as a consistent fantasy producer.

So basically the've finally moved to normal scoring. That's the scoring I've been playing with for years, and Vick is certainly not a top QB in any of those leagues.

The biggest change the new scoring makes is to affect the value of gunslingers like Kitna and Favre. -1 ints is just silly.

If I remember right, Vick had 2 or 3 big point games, and otherwise his points were average to below average. I have never and never will have Vick on my FF team. ;-D

At the end of the year, he might be high up there in total points scored, but it doesn't do your team any good when a large majority of those points came in a handful of games, because you never know when those games are going to come with Vick.

This is the same scoring I use... it is considered the standard by most fantasy magazines. Last year Vick was the #3 QB in this scoring. But I before last season he wasn't close... he needs to rush for 1000 yards and 6-8 tds to get in the upper echelon again... don't see that happening... possible... but last year was nuts...
