Last night’s Monday Night football game between the Philadelphia Eagles and Washington Redskins was not much of a game at all due to the truly ridiculous game that Michael Vick had at QB for the Birds. What Vick did last night in both real and in fantasy football was downright absurd as he 20/28 for 333 yards with 4 passing TD’s along with 80 rushing yards with 2 more TD’s. Thats six TD’s in one game. I think its fair to say that anyone who had the fortune of having Vick as their starting QB this week in fantasy football won their games easily. In fact if anyone who started Vick did lose, please contact me and let me know how that was possible.
Getting back to the game, its become crystal clear that Michael Vick has graduated to a top tier fantasy football QB, much to my adn many others’ astonishment. What Vick has accomplished this season is remarkable and certainly is one of the more improbable stories I have seen in years. Sure Vick was a bad guy for what he did with the dogfighting ring but the guy paid his debt to society and has done wonders with his second chance. Vick’s stats right now are 11 passing TD’s with ZERO interceptions. On to top of that, Vick also has 4 rushing TD’s. In between he has passed for 1,350 yards. Nothing but positives all around. Now I know I said at the beginning of the season that Vick wasnt worth looking at after he came in for the injured Kevin Kolb but find me one person who thought he would even come close to this level of performance. The fact of the matter is that NO ONE saw this coming and so those who snatched Vick up off waivers got the steal of the fantasy football season. Right now there is no way to say he wont continue this level of play as Vick has a ridiculous amount of weapons in WR’s DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Macklin, along with RB LeSean McCoy. All in all Michael Vick has become a much better overall QB than he ever was before he went to jail as he is throwing for good yardage with no turnovers along with his customary rushing totals. He has taken the fantasy football world by storm as a result. Who woulda thunk it?
