Opening kickoff is September 10th for the regular season. Even though we are still months away many are planing their fantasy draft strategy.
Even though training camp has yet to start there are already lots of situations to monitor. In the upcoming weeks as they play out. They could have a huge impact on this years fantasy season.
One of the biggest stories is Michael Vick. However this one should have no impact on the '09 fantasy season.
Even if Vick is allowed to play in the NFL this season. If a team decides to take a chance on him. Don't look for him to do much more than hold a clip board.
Vick has not played football in two seasons. Which puts question marks on if he can still get it done with his legs like he use to.
Also there will be questions about the impact prison will have on his football career. I imagine mentally he wont be prepared either.
In my opinion the new UFL would be the best fit for Vick his first year back.
It could allow him to get back into football both mentally and physically. The UFL would be better for Vick than holding a clipboard all season.
So even if Vick returns to the NFL he has no fantasy value, and should be avoided in all drafts.
