Steelers | Michael Vick's timing off in offense

Wed, 07 Oct 2015 10:27:59 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown said the timing with QB Michael Vick was off last week as he filled in for QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee). "I think (Mike Vick's passes) just come out a little bit later than Ben's," Brown said. "I don't think Mike Vick has yet adjusted to the timing of how we run things. His balls come out later in the routes, at the top of your route. You just have to get the timing down and make sure we're on the same page."

Fantasy Tip: It was evident in last Thursday's game that Vick ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) wasn't on the same page as his receivers, and you have to downgrade all of the players in the aerial game for Pittsburgh with Big Ben out. Brown ($8,700, 17.4% of cap) remains a must-start in traditional fantasy leagues, but you should certainly be hesitant to pay up for him on FantasyScore as long as Vick is running the show.

Steelers | Michael Vick doesn't impress

Thu, 01 Oct 2015 20:46:18 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Michael Vick only had 124 yards passing on 24 tries for a 4.4 average in the Week 4 loss to the Baltimore Ravens Thursday, Oct. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Vick ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) is a shell of his former self, and he loses most of his fantasy appeal because he isn't as much of a threat to run anymore. He's strictly a deep sleeper at QB on FantasyScore in the right matchup with Ben Roethlisberger (knee) out.

Steelers | Antonio Brown could suffer with new QB

Thu, 01 Oct 2015 10:12:16 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown's production could suffer with QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) out four to six weeks. Brown credits astounding chemistry he has with Roethlisberger on and off the field to their success. Roethlisberger throws to Brown about 30% of the time on broken plays, and QB Michael Vick has had accuracy issues.

Fantasy Tip: Brown's ($8,900, 17.8% of cap) value could suffer a brownout, but not a complete blackout. He's talented enough to tally numbers with a toddler throwing to him. However, at this price tag, we understand second-guessing against the Baltimore Ravens on FantasyScore this week.

Steelers | PIT HC confident in Michael Vick

Mon, 28 Sep 2015 14:15:27 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Michael Vick still has plenty of playing time left in his career, according to head coach Mike Tomlin. Vick will be the Steelers' starting quarterback for several weeks with QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) sidelined. Vick completed five of six passes for 38 yards after Roethlisberger exited in Week 3. That being said, Pittsburgh will play more conservatively with Vick. Tomlin said the Steelers will work in Vick's comfort zone and try to bring the game to him.

Fantasy Tip: Vick is certainly an intriguing player in the realm of fantasy football. He's got a strong arm and is still a capable runner. He could be a sneaky play on FantasyScore for Week 4.

Steelers | Michael Vick in line to start

Sun, 27 Sep 2015 15:17:16 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Michael Vick is set to step into the starting lineup in Week 4 against the Baltimore Ravens with QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) expected to miss at least four weeks due to a knee injury.

Fantasy Tip: Vick ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) isn't a recommended FantasyScore option against the Ravens, even though they were picked apart in Week 3. Vick will have a short week with a Thursday kick, and it's best to avoid him until he has a full week to get acclimated to the starting role in Pittsburgh.

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 12:55:04 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QBs Michael Vick and Landry Jones both took second-team snaps during warmups Saturday, Aug. 29.

Fantasy Tip: As long as Ben Roethlisberger is healthy, neither quarterback will have any fantasy value.

Steelers | Michael Vick should play

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 10:54:33 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Michael Vick is expected to play Saturday, Aug. 29, against the Buffalo Bills. Vick was signed just four days ago.

Fantasy Tip: The only way Vick will have any fantasy value is if Ben Roethlisberger suffers an injury. Even then, Vick may back up Landry Jones.

Steelers | Michael Vick signs

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 16:40:42 -0700

Updating a previous report, free-agent QB Michael Vick (Jets) signed a one-year deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers Tuesday, Aug. 25. Financial terms were not disclosed. QB Bruce Gradkowski (finger) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list.

Fantasy Tip: This is Ben Roethlisberger's offense, there's no questioning that. If Roethlisberger is injured at some point, however, Vick could make for a nice fill-in if he is able to pass Landry Jones on the depth chart.
