PPR league? It's a steal in a vacuum IMO, but about a wash for your team. Either could finish as the top player, but I'd way rather bank on Rice having a career year with a slight uptick this season than Vick meeting/exceeding last year. It did weaken you at QB, as the difference between Vick and Cassel/Kolb is quite wide; but the upgrade at RB is pretty nice with having Rice, Bradshaw and Hillis. Not sure of your starting requirements, but I would probably try to package Cassel and a position player for an upgrade at QB, and then I think the bulk of the moves ends up in your best interests ;-D

I think both sides probably win. Vick is certainly a dynamic QB and helps any fantasy roster he is on. You needed a RB1 and got an elite guy in Rice. I think it's a good move for your squad.

In a keep-2 I think you made out nicely. I like Bradshaw more than Hillis to be perfectly honest, but either makes for a nice RB2 behind Ray Ray ;-D

Keep DeSean Jackson over both of those running backs.
