Who is better than Michael Vick right now in fantasy football? Besides maybe CPep, I can't think of anyone.

That's an odd question. I can name many players that are techinally better FF players than Vick, most of them would be RB's. If Vick was the best FF player next to Culpepper, they would be the first two picks in most drafts next year. And I'll go ahead and tell you that they won't be.

Dude, I think he means what QB is better than Michael Vick in fantasy football? Of course, Priest Holmes is still the king.

Eight INT's. Who has more? Let's see...Manning, Kitna, Hass, Green, and Brady among others. Only McNair and Manning have a better TD/INT ratio.

Only 6 fumbles also.

Vick is not a better FF QB than CPepp at this point.

I would consider Manning/Mcnair over Vick. What they lack in rushing yards they make up for in TD's, and they'll almost always put up more passing yards than Vick.

I think it depends on the type of league you are in. In TD heavy or only leagues, I don't think Vick is that great. In the league I am in he's pretty darn valuable since we give 1pt every 10 yards rushing. Last week he got the equivalent of 2 TD passes and 2 TD rushes with his legs alone. I would say that's kinda high but you could almost definitely count on 50-60 yards rushing from him. In yardage heavy leagues, he can be pretty tough. This week in the playoffs I am playing a guy with Vick, Faulk, and F. Taylor, Vanderjagt, and NE Def. If he gets any kinda help from Boldin and Boston, he's very tough.

Yeah. In ESPN leagues, you get 1pt/10 yards rushing and only 1pt/25 yards passing. Also you get 6pts for a rushing TD and only 4pts for a passing TD. Basically, under this scoring system, CPepp and Vick are fantasy gods. Of course there are still many RBs and a couple WRs I'd draft before either.

i think when healthy, and consistent (hes only played one game so far people) he could be very good. I would still take manning over him because of the TDs, but he is damn good. Overall, i would still take holmes above him.
