QB Help - Vick, Newton or Stafford? [WHIR]

Postby winkee223 » Sat Oct 01, 2011 9:37 am

First season playing fantasy football and I seem to be doing okay at 2-1. If I win Sunday, I'll be tied for first so in my competitive mind, tomorrow is a must win.

Team looks like:

Starting
QB M. Stafford
RB F. Jackson
RB R. Mendenhall
WR L. Fitzgerald
WR M. Wallace
TE J. Graham
Flex S. Johnson
K S. Gostkowski
DEF Steelers

Benched
RB B. Tate
TE A. Hernandez
QB M. Vick
RB D. Sproles
QB C. Newton
Def Jets DEF

Not sure if I'm making the right choice at QB:
Vick is slated to start but is an injury magnet...
Cam was blowing up until last game. People have been blaming it on the weather but is that accurate?
Stafford seems solid. Just picked him up off waivers.

Only 6 players in this league, a small group of friends. A lot of good options on WW if I should need a change. M. Ryan, Fitzpatrick, Henne, Sanchez, E.Manning, Schaub etc etc.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated

*EDIT* Also, if you happen to notice I've made some glaring error in my starting line-up, please feel free to call me stupid and tell me what's wrong.

*EDIT 2* Scoring
Passing Yards: 1 point per 25 yards
Passing Touchdowns: 4 points
Interceptions Thrown: -2 points
Rushing Yards: 1 point per 10 yards
Rushing Touchdowns: 6 points
Receiving Yards: 1 point per 10 yards
Receiving Touchdowns: 6 points
Kickoff and Punt Return Yards: 1 point per 15 yards
Kickoff and Punt Return Touchdowns: 3 points
Fumble Recovered for TD: 6 points
Fumbles Lost: -2 points
2-Point Conversions: 2 points

I would go Vick here. I think Dallas can get enough pressure on stafford to keep him in check, and Newton's matchup is not favorable @ Chi.

honestly, I say pick up Fitzpatrick...in my leauge hes been a beast so far, and against a decent Cincy D, Id look for more great numbers...but really it depends on how your leagues scoring is set up

i think you have it right, Stafford will be airing it out as much as he can. But fitz is another great option

I would go with Stafford. Dallas can create some pressure. But Detriots O Line has been great for him this season. And their secondary is really suspect. I can't trust Vick just yet I can see him have a 3 turnover game. And Newton is in for it against the Bears this week.

I would work a Trade for Michael Vick and then pick Fitz up off the WW . . . quickly.

I cant believe the choices you have for QB on your WW.

This week I would start Stafford and even Fitz.

stafford should put up great numbers this week. Vick is too risky to start over Stafford right now. Yes, he has the capabilities of scoring 50, but also hurting a new body part on the 2nd play of the game.

Play Stafford.
