How can you call Michael Vick a sleeper? Currently being drafted 6th overall amongst quarterbacks, this does not qualify Vick as a sleeper, however the fact that he is being drafted 36th overall in Yahoo! drafts does. Michael Vick is a near lock to finish top-25 even if he only plays in 14 games this season. It is commonly accepted knowledge that Michael Vick is a huge injury risk but on the other hand it is also an axiom that Vick is one of the top fantasy options on the planet when healthy. Vick is currently being drafted in the 3rd round in 12-team fantasy football drafts while the other elite signal callers are seeing their names called in rounds one and two. Adding Vick in the 3rd can lead your fantasy team to glory, just make sure you get a highly talented backup like Andrew Luck or Jay Cutler in case of injury. Don’t sleep.
