To start or not to start, that is the question

Michael Vick – Redskins at Philly – The Fantasy MVP in many leagues last week (3 tds 291 and 30)with an average of 32 points was undoubtedly the highest producing quarterback out gunning Peyton(25), Phillip(24), and Tom (22) but can he do it again particularly with the other team scheming for him? We think so. The Redskins give up 265 per through the air and they having played the best names in league. Where the Skins could provide a little trouble is on the ground where they offer up less than 100 per, but Vick has not been doing it with his legs as much as of late. He should still be your starter.
Tom Brady – Pats at Dolphins – this is a tough call. Brady has been consistently producing through three games this season and may be called upon to keep the Pats in this one if the Dolphins plug up the New England running game which is suspect at best. Because of the ‘stat padder’ game against the Bills the Pats average 123 yards per on the ground but it’s fool’s gold. Conversely, if the Fish go 8 in the box to stop the Pats spread offense Brady could go for 300, also if Miami gets out to a big lead NE may have to throw to get in the game, keep in mind the Dolphins only give up 17 points per game. If you are blessed to have another major on your club then perhaps sit Tom down, but I want to know what league you’re in that you can get two quarterbacks of that caliber and have anything left!
One to watch – Matt Ryan Atlanta vs. San Francisco – I know he hasn’t really broken out yet but this could be a good week to count on 30+ points from Ryan as he’ll be hosting the ‘Niners who give up 217 in the air and more than that on turf. San Francisco does have a strong rush D so if the Birds take with the defense gives them there should be some good opportunities for the Falcons and particularly Ryan if they get down inside the 10 as they will probably try to hit pay dirt through the air as the path of least resistance. I look for 20+ points from Ryan this weekend.
