As Fantasy Football owners continue to list and re-list their cheat sheets for the 2012 NFL Season, several quarterbacks are getting a bit too much love as we head into May. Between coaching changes, injury history or roster turnover, some quarterbacks find themselves either losing value or getting overvalued compared to 2011. Below are my top 5 players who I won’t touch with a ten-foot pole come Fantasy Football Draft time.

Michael Vick may put up big numbers, but his injury history will make me shy away from him.

1. Michael Vick (Philadelphia Eagles) - I’m not avoiding Vick because of his stats. The guy can put up 3500 passing yards and toss in another 500 on the ground without blinking. The problem with Vick is he can’t stay healthy. Because of his continued “I’m going to run when the pressure is on” attitude, he has yet to play a full 16-game season since 2006. There is no doubt that the guy has weapons. DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin, Brent Celek and LeSean McCoy set Vick up for a promising season again in 2012, but the chances of him missing 2-3 games because of an injury are always too great. If you do draft Vick, you better as hell get a really strong QB2 to make up for that missed time. As of now, I don’t trust any of the team’s other quarterbacks to carry the load if Vick is out. Mike Kafka? I don’t think so.
