Forget trying to win your league if you’re in the dumps at this point in the season, but don’t forget the season’s not over. Sure, you may not be in the money anymore, but that doesn’t mean you can’t torch the plane on the way down and maybe take a few members with you. And if you are still in the money, follow this list to avoid being dragged down by those fellow member’s who are just interested in watching the league burn.
Start ‘Em: Michael Vick – QB|Eagles (vs. Atlanta Falcons)
Vick has had yet another miserable season, and his frustrating struggles with fumbles have been the sticking point with a lot of his owners. But Vick is sick of hearing the criticism and he’s bound to go off at some point this season if just for one game. That might be Sunday against A Falcons defense that almost allowed Carson Palmer to beat it at home. Vick gets his old team in Philly, which is one of many factors that lean in his favor. The Falcons are wobbling out of the bye week after nearly beating the Redskins, Panthers, Raiders and basically everyone they’ve played. Atlanta has been getting lucky and one of these weeks they won’t have enough to come back. Vick is playing for more than pride this week and he might be set to go off.
