Eagles QB Michael Vick appears to be on the fast track to being fantasy relevant once again in 2010.
According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the Rams are “seriously considering” trading for Vick in the offseason. Marc Bulger appears to be out of the mix, so the Rams will soon be in need of a quarterback.
Vick knows Rams GM Billy Devaney from their time together in Atlanta, so it seems like a nice fit.
While it’s hard to envision a scenario where Vick would re-claim his status as a No. 1 fantasy quarterback, it looks like he could turn into a valuable reserve. There are at least six teams with a need at quarterback, including the Rams and Bills, so Vick will no doubt warrant some attention.
Speaking of Eagles quarterbacks, is it possible that Donovan McNabb might be heading to Minnesota?
Rumors have swirled that if Brett Favre decides to retire, the Vikings would look to acquire McNabb from the Eagles. Vikings coach Brad Childress knows McNabb well from their time together in Philadelphia, so he’d be a nice fit in purple and yellow.
Of course, that all depends on Favre. And if we’ve learned one thing about the future Hall of Famer, it’s that he likes to take his time making up his mind.
Hypothetically, let’s say that Favre does retire and McNabb lands in Minnesota.
The combination of those two situations would make Kevin Kolb a serious sleeper in fantasy circles. He showed flashes of brilliance in McNabb’s absence last season, and he’d put up some nice numbers in the pass-laden offense of coach Andy Reid.
One thing is for sure: fantasy owners need to keep close tabs on what’s going on with these potential scenarios.
