The time has finally come. It’s been a long time coming, but Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Mike Vick is now the No. 1 fantasy football quarterback for the final three weeks of the regular season. Vick’s worst fantasy game this season was a 19-point fantasy game against the Giants back in Week 11.
While he faces the Giants again this week, there’s little to no reason to believe that he won’t continue with his amazing streak. Despite missing nearly four games this season, Vick will very likely finish as the highest scoring quarterback in fantasy football this season—what an amazing comeback story.
Now that Aaron Rodgers has been ruled out for this Sunday’s game, our previous top-ranked quarterback falls 14 spots to 15th among fantasy quarterbacks for the rest of the year.
The concussion that knocked him out of last week’s game is apparently bad enough that he can’t play through it despite this being perhaps the most important game of the Packers’ season. If he does come back in the final two games, it will be against two of his toughest opponents this season, the Giants and Bears.
Rodgers’ backup, Matt Flynn, moved up 25 spots this week to 29th among quarterbacks. He’ll face a subpar New England Patriots secondary this week that has played extremely well over the past two weeks after a long season of bad play.
Flynn had a tough game in his first significant playing time of the season last week against the Lions in Detroit. With practice this week, he should have a better chance to get things going this week—he may even have a chance to play past this week if Rodgers isn’t ready to go in Week 16.
One of the biggest risers this week is Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman who will have the pleasure of facing two terrible secondaries over the next two weeks. The Seahawks and Lions stand little chance of stopping Freeman’s impressive streak of consistency.
He has stayed away from bad games this season and while he has not had any huge games, it might be time now that the Buccaneers are trying to make a late-season playoff push.
