Vick at home against ravens or Rivers home against Tenn? Balt was very average on the road last year and Vick can't be as bad as last week can he? Rivers did not impress me at all last week either. Thoughts?

Vick has a higher upside even against good D. Had 20 fantasy points last week with 4 ints.

Wow! Same situation as you in my league. Also gave a bet placed on Baltimore ML. Im going with Vick. Part of the deal with him is his rushing which has been steady whenever hes on the field, if he parlays that with a Rushing TD. Thats golden. Where as Philip Rivers could light it up or can sometimes be, whats the word, uninspiring. Maybe why he was drafted so low. But I was high on him every draft. Stocking up on a stable of backs on every team and making sure to snag a top flight WR. I'll be starting Vick, he is my starter. good luck to you sir.

Tough call. I would lean Rivers. Vick is Vick and could have a monster, but last week's performance was lame. Also Balt hasn't allowed more than 1 passing TD to any QB in the past 19 games...yes 19.

With that stat, I would choose the safer route with Rivers at home vs a Ten team that got beat pretty bad by NE.

But who knows, Ten could step up and Vick could be lights out. But I'd go Rivers and know it was the safer move.

I'd go w/Rivers.

Here's why:

1. Harbaugh was an asst under Reid for 10 yrs--knows his mindset.

2. Maclin/DJAx are both hurting and Neither of them are "tough"...DJax is a kitten.

3. Vick looked awful last week...VERP decisions w/the football. He is the MOST overhyped player in the NFL.  The guy basically has mashed potatoes between his ears.

Still torn, either way this week will show me a lot about how Vick will be the rest of year.

Went with Vick. He had 25 and Rivers 19.

That performance was a confidence builder
