Jump ship on Vick or Gates?

Postby mike.spartacus » Thu Sep 20, 2012 6:45 pm

So, when I drafted I played it safe and picked up two quarterbacks and two tight ends. I drafted Michael Vick to actually by my QB1 and picked RGIII late as a backup with the hopes of him breaking out. I drafted Antonio Gates who has been hurting as my starting tight end, and Brandon Pettigrew as a backup, honestly to fill a roster spot as I felt he was best available at the time. Both of the backups I drafted seem to be doing better already. Is now a good time to jump ship on one or the other, if not both, in favor of other positions?

I have the following for RBs and WRs: Andre Brown, Arian Foster, Maurice Jones-Drew, Benjarvis Green-Ellis, DeAngelo Williams, Roddy White, Greg Jennings, Victor Cruz, and Brandon LaFell

Scoring: 1 pt per 10 yards RUSH, 1 pt per 20 yards REC, 1 pt per REC, 6 pts per TD

well obviously dont drop either, if by jumping ship you mean trying to orchestrate a trade to find value elsewhere then that is fine, but i think youd be selling low on gates.. id wait for a few weeks, preferably id keep gates to start i think he will have a much better season then pettigrew... as far as vick and RGIII tough call, id maybe try to move vick to someone who is high on him...
