Start RGIII or Michael Vick??? WHIR

Postby Ahzzy » Sat Sep 15, 2012 5:10 pm

I never thought I'd be asking myself this the 2nd week of the season...

RGIII or Michael Vick? WHIR

Standard scoring, [passing] 1pt/25yd , 4pt/TD , -2pt/INT [rushing] 1pt/10yd , 6pt/TD

Redskins @ Rams
Eagles v Ravens

Ravens are always a tough defense, Vick threw 4 INT against a much softer Browns D. Meanwhile RG3 lit it up last week against the Saints but play a Rams team is led by Jeff Fisher that got 3 picks out of Matthew Stafford and made him look horrible.

Pierre Garcon, Desean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin are all questionable.

RG III without a doubt. He had a great week and Vick is going against a tough defense. I think the rams defense was a fluke last week too

I would go with RG3, his match-up is too good to pass up.

I think Vick is in for a long day! Both WR's hurting. BAL looked great week 1. I'm not a Vick fan this week.

having said that, I'm not crazy about RG3 this week either. Garcon will be slowed at minimum. And, St.L pass D is no push over.

I would go RG3, but temper expectations.

Michael Vick.

I wouldn't immediately start RGIII and bench VIck after his last week's performance. I think we still need time to see if he can put up those numbers on a consistent basis. You have a great qb in michael vick who has a better offense around him. Michael Vick did have 4 interceptions against a terrible defensive team, but he still fnished with 2 tds and 300+ yards. He showed a flash of brilliance on the final game winning drive. The eagles are known for playing down the level of their opponents. Indeed he has a tougher matchup, but I think he'll redeem himself this week.

Stay with Vick for at least one more week!

RGIII without a doubt. The Ravens are going to make life miserable for Vick and whatever body part he is going to hurt this week.

Thank you for all the input, I think in the end it is going to come down to who's supporting cast is healthy to play. If RGIII does not have Garcon, I dont trust the rest of their offense to give him the support he'll need to put up the big fantasy points. On the flip side, if Vick is without Maclin or Jackson against the daunting Ravens defense, he'll be relying a lot more on McCoy.

I realize that Vick still put up a lot of fantasy points last week despite throwing 4 INT. However, I think a lot of that has to do with the Browns also throwing 4 INT so Vicks turnovers didn't affect the time of possession very much. With the Browns offense being equally horrible, Vick was given the opportunity to rack up the passing yards; I dont see that happening against Baltimore who finally has a decent offensive force.
