Jets QB Michael Vick running the Wildcat in camp


Jets QB Michael Vick running the Wildcat in camp

When the New York Jets signed Michael Vick @MikeVick they surely were looking for some quarter back competition to push Geno Smith @GenoSmith_12. Aside from the competition, Vick could also bring a great change-of-pace role to the Jets' offense. Last season the Jets ran the Wildcat formation a league-high 38 times and they also just recently devoted an entire practice period to running the Wildcat. Along with Vick's scrambling ability that he proved to still have in the Jets last preseason game, the veteran quarterback could possibly be used in a specialized role with the formation.

Fantasy Analysis:

If the Jets use Michael Vick in such a specialized role, he could really showcase what he has left in the tank. However, there is always the injury risk with Vick. If the Jets do choose to use him in the Wildcat they are putting their backup quarterback's health on the line. There is always the possibility Smith plays poorly enough to warrant Vick starting for the Jets and that factor alone would make owning Vick a decent QB2 option. As of now, the veteran is going undrafted in most leagues and it should probably stay that way unless Smith really starts to struggle.
