Awesome, thanks for both of your inputs!

I think if Eli and Vick each played that game 20 times, Eli would have the higher average score, but I think Vick would have more big games. Unfortunately I think Vick would also throw up more duds. So, if you are playing against a team whose matchup you think is pretty close to you, go with the more sure thing of Eli. If you are a big underdog, go with Vick and hope for a big game (and one or two of those bonus point TDs). If he puts up a low number, it likely wouldn't have mattered anyway.
I think your response def makes me look at the start a bit different at QB. The CBS preview is showing me at a -7 underdog in my matchup this week. My oppenent has the following line-up:
QB - Peyton vs Giants
RBs - D Will vs TB, PT @ SF, Caddy @ CAR
WRs - Jennings vs Buf, Bolding @ Cin
TE - Witten vs CHI
Playing Eli might be a hedge for me if it gets into a shootout with his Bro. Although my gut instinct tells me that the Giants will try to establish a solid run game against a Sanderless Colts D. PT @ SF is also intriguing as I have the SF defense.
I think you're right that Vick provides the upside, which I may need going against this team. But Eli might be a hedge if the Indi vs NYG game turns crazy.
