In 2011, Michael Vick put up one of the best fantasy seasons in years. He has a solid chance at returning to such prominence this season.
Yes, yes. I know what you're thinking. He's too injury prone! He doesn't slide! Too small! I want a healthy quarterback like Aaron Rodgers or Tom Brady!
It's correct that Vick is injury-prone. However, his risk/reward is too great to ignore. If Vick stays healthy, your team automatically contends for a championship. It's as simple as that, and there's not one other player in the league who can offer that.
And while an injury would certainly be devastating to your fantasy team, this season's quarterback field offers a lot of backup protection.
According to ESPN's average draft position (ADP), you can draft Matt Schaub at 83, Jay Cutler at 93, Andrew Luck at 111, Alex Smith at 115 and Carson Palmer at 139. All of these players could justify a starting job on your fantasy team, let alone a backup spot.
Draft Vick with confidence in the first three rounds and pair him with a good backup once your roster fills out. If he slips into the 30's, don't think twice.
