Fantasy Football 2013: Quarterback Rankings

Michael Vick could bounce back this season running Chip Kelly's offense

Entering the regular season, quarterback appears to be fairly deep, as evidenced by Athlon Sports' Fantasy Football 2013 Quarterback Rankings. For example, take Michael Vick, who currently checks in at No. 15. Vick beat out Nick Foles for the Eagles' starting job and it's not out of the question that the veteran could bounce back in a huge way running Chip Kelly's offense. While there are certainly safer options than Vick, he also could pay off in a huge way for the owner willing to take a chance.

Another potentially risky pick that could reap big rewards is Robert Griffin III. While the reigning NFL AP Offensive Rookie of the Year has yet to play in a preseason game, he appears to be right on schedule with his recovery from knee surgery with his sights set squarely on starting the Redskins' "Monday Night Football" opener against Vick's Eagles. RGIII's potential, in terms of both risk and reward, is why he sits just outside the top 10 at No. 12.
