2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
Despite averaging the second highest FPts/G average of his career, Vick was considered a bit of a bust in 2011. At 23.2 PPG, Vick averaged 6.5 FPts/G fewer than his monster 2010 season and it doesnít take a rocket scientist to figure out why. After scoring nine touchdowns on the ground in 2010, Vick found the end zone just once. However, Vick himself may have been the biggest cause for his lack of scores as he turned the ball over repeatedly, coughing up 14 interceptions and losing four fumbles in the 13 games he appeared in. Otherwise, Vick put together a solid season setting career-highs in completions (253), attempts (423) and passing yards (3,303). In 2012, his success will depend on two factors: a willingness to avoid hits and improved decision-making. Vick can still run the ball (589 rushing yards last season) and his passing is light years ahead of what it was in his younger days, although not quite on par with the upper echelon quarterbacks in the league. He seemed to get the message about avoiding hits when he returned from a rib injury in Week 14 last season, with his rushing attempts dropping from 7.2 before the injury to 2.8 after the injury. And therein lies the quandary with Vick as your starting fantasy quarterback. He needs to run the ball effectively to be a stud but that increases his risk of injury, which takes him out of the lineup. Look for Vick to improve on his 2011 fantasy production but not match his monster season in 2010, leaving him just outside the top five as a fantasy option in 2012. Keep in mind that drafting Vick necessitates grabbing an upper tier backup since itís pretty much certain he will miss time at some point in the season.

Comment: Vick (thumb, ribs) has played 12 snaps in the preseason and has been injured twice.

News From The Past 90 Days
Vick benched, Geno Smith to start     -- Wed Nov 26 11:30 am --

Decision reportedly comes from GM
In a surprise, the New York Jets have decided to return to Geno Smith as their starting quarterback, sending Michael Vick to the bench after only three starts. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: The Jets will Smith another opportunity but don't expect it to go well. The team is coming off an embarrassing loss to the Bills (38-3) and with head coach Rex Ryan a lame duck, the team is simply playing out the string. Expect the Dolphins pass rush to succeed on Monday night.
Injury Jets still deciding Week 13 starter     -- Tue Nov 25 8:37 am --

Rex Ryan weighing options after brutal loss
Not that either quarterback made a compelling case for the job, but Jets coach Rex Ryan said after Monday's 38-3 loss to the Bills that he isn't sure if Geno Smith or Michael Vick would start next Monday night at home against Miami. "We'll address that later," Ryan said. "I don't know yet. We'll figure it out. I want to see how they look (after evaluating the tape of Monday's game). Sometimes, you can have a feel and a sense of it on the field. When you watch the tape, maybe you see a different opinion. We'll take a look at it and do what we think is best." Smith replaced Vick with 4:57 remaining in the third quarter, when the Jets trailed 31-3. Smith did not play in either of the past two games, a loss to the Chiefs and a win over the Steelers. Ryan benched Smith in favor of Vick after Smith threw three first-quarter interceptions Oct. 26 against the Bills. At the time of his benching for the Kansas City game, Smith had committed 37 turnovers in his 24 career NFL games. On Monday night, Vick completed 7 of 19 passes for 76 yards and an interception. Vick almost threw two other picks. Smith completed 10 of 12 passes for 89 yards. Facing the Bills' formidable defensive line, Vick was sacked five times. Smith was sacked twice, though one was on the game's final play, when he ran out of bounds for a 4-yard loss while under pressure. "We also had some shots where I thought we really could've completed some passes," Ryan said when asked about Vick's lackluster stat line. "But it wasn't just (Vick). The protection, he was under duress almost the whole game." The Jets are 2-9, so their final five games will just be a slow trudge to the finish for Ryan, who almost certainly will be fired after the season. Will the Jets use these final five games to take one last look at Smith, and determine if he has a future with them? Or will they turn back to Vick, who hopes to prove he can remain on this team in 2015 and contend for the starting job? When Ryan benched Smith for Vick during the first Buffalo game, the coach named Vick the starter the next day for the following week's game at the Chiefs. Ryan is scheduled to speak with reporters Tuesday afternoon. Vick sustained a minor calf injury Monday night, but he could have continued to play. "I saw that he was hobbled a little bit, it looked like," Ryan said. "He was taking some hits, and I wanted to give Geno some shots out there, give him a chance. It wasn't told to me that (Vick) could not play. I just saw that he was hobbled a little bit there." Said Vick: "I got kicked in the calf, but it wasn't that bad. I could've come back, but coach told me I got knocked around a little bit and he just didn't want me out there." (NJ.com)

FF Today's Take: Neither Vick nor Smith is a recommended fantasy option at this point, but it could have an impact on how the other skill positions (and we use that term loosely) perform this week. Stay tuned.
Michael Vick announced as Week 9 starter     -- Mon Oct 27 5:55 pm --

Geno Smith benched after throwing three first-quarter picks
The New York Jets made the only move they could reasonably make at quarterback for Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium. They are replacing the struggling Geno Smith with veteran Michael Vick. The Chiefs last season faced several quarterbacks making their first start after replacing a starter who was either injured or ineffective. This is the first such instance this season and it allows Vick to cross paths once again with Chiefs coach Andy Reid. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: Vick was only marginally better than Smith in Week 8, failing to spot wide-open underneath receivers on several occasions while throwing an interception and committing two fumbles. In theory, Vick's ability to extend plays should give Percy Harvin and Eric Decker more time to get open, but Vick also appears to have regressed as a passer. The Jets' best chance to win in Week 9 is to ride Chris Ivory and the running game as long as possible.
Will NYJ turn to Michael Vick?     -- Tue Sep 23 10:15 am --

Geno Smith's mistakes may cost him starting job
Geno Smith had his second multi-turnover game of the season, punctuated by a nightmarish pick-six 32 seconds in that set the tone in a 27-19 loss to the Bears. Smithís second interception came in the end zone on an ill-advised pass intended for David Nelson. It was just another blow on a night filled with self-inflicted wounds that dropped Ryanís team to 1-2, and has coaches considering it may be time to plug in Michael Vick. (New York Daily News)

FF Today's Take: Ryan didnít rule out the possibility that Vick, who played one snap against the Bears, could become more involved. From a fantasy perspective, it's not a terrible idea to grab Vick as a medium-upside stash in deeper formats and two-QB leagues.
