Online Poll Reveals Value QB

Anyone who reads this blog or the site knows we haven’t said too many good things about QB Vince Young, and in fact we’ve been pretty hard on him. But we do like the post-hype sleeper, and it looks like Young is one in 2008. Maybe not a true sleeper, but he’s certainly a value, and that is evident in our most recent online poll. I’m sure our readers are influenced by our lack of love for Young in the past, but he got none in that last poll we had up. Here are the final votes:

Jay Cutler – 131 Votes
Matt Schaub – 130 votes
Aaron Rodgers – 83 votes
Philip Rivers – 48 votes
Jason Campbell – 22 votes
Tarvaris Jackson – 16 votes
Vince Young – 10 votes
440 Votes Total

I dealt with how all the respondents are on the right track with the guys at the top, and even the bottom, but Young getting only 10 votes really stands out. From Weeks 4-17 in 2006, Young was actually a top-10 fantasy QB, so he should be getting more love than he’s getting.

  • Position Battle Playing Time for First Full Week of Preseason Action August 13, 2014
    We continue to update the position battles around the league, but in this blog, I thought looking at preseason playing time would be interesting. The depth chart doesn’t always tell the whole story and it’s certainly worth noting when players get in the game and who they get to play with, whether it’s with the first-team offense or the backups. If you’re loo […]
