Michael Vick, QB, N/A
2014 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)Last updated on Jul-14-2014 by Mark Morales-Smith
Michael Vick is one of the most exciting and polarizing players to ever play. Vick has revolutionized the quarterback position and is the ultimate dual-threat. His issue is (and has always been) his health. Vick has only once played all 16 games in a season, which was way back in 2006. Vick is clearly the most talented quarterback on the Jets' roster, but a subpar minicamp has opened the door for second-year man Geno Smith to be the Week 1 starter. Vick will get his opportunity, because the bottom line is he is a much better player than Smith is right now; however, the Jets understand in order for Smith to improve, he must play. Vick was having an average season for the Eagles in 2013 when he once again was injured. Nick Foles came in and played so well that Vick never got his job back. Vick may have realized that his playing days are numbered, so he has added four pounds of solid muscle to help improve his durability. Vick's fantasy status is on a wait-and-see basis, but when he gets his opportunity to start (and he will), we all know what he is capable of. Vick is most likely only draft worthy in deeper leagues as a backup. One big game though and he will be a hot commodity on the waiver wire.
