You're actually making my point for me (though you think you're on the other side
): "Cancelling" out the points of the tied-for-fourth-best receiving option on the same team as your would-be QB should not even come close to entering your mind when making a start/sit decision. If Celek catches a TD, then he catches a TD. You can't control that - you can only control starting the guys that will get you the most points (and in a decision like this, it's about how much you want to risk your baseline points for some implied upside). If Colston catches 10 balls for 132 yards and a score, those are all points your opponent can't do anything about either, as well as all of Bryant's extra points and field goals. Fantasy football is all about putting the guys out there you believe will score you the most points in a given week, and the rest is all up to "fate", luck and making the best educated
decision(s) you can make with limited, imperfect information, etc...
Not saying Vick is a terrible choice, and he could outscore Brees like I said before, but don't make the (potentially) "right" decision for a reason that doesn't exist, that's all I'm saying
