QB Michael Vick (Philadelphia)
I’m projecting a down year across the board for Vick once again. He proved last year that his performance against Washington in 2010 was a fluke. I expect him to regress back to close to typical Atlanta passing stats, where he never went over 3000 yards passing, only once threw more than 16 touchdowns and averaged 13 interceptions per game from 2004-2006. He’ll be slightly better because of Andy Reid’s offense and a great receiving corps.
He’s also a year older, which won’t help him, especially as a runner. Legs are normally the first thing to go on an athlete. And if he stops being as big of a threat to run, he becomes easier to defend as a passer. And this is before I mention all the injuries he suffers yearly. Basically, I don’t see him aging well and I wouldn’t recommend him as a fantasy starter.
