There are so many good topics to cover in this week's Fantasy Foresight, that it was difficult to pick a theme. Instead, the piece will focus on some on fantasy football's biggest questions right now. Is it time to for owners to give up on Michael Vick? Which wideouts benefit most from Darrelle Revis' injury? Which are the worst run defenses in the NFL?

Let's jump right in and get started.

Is it time for fantasy owners to throw in the towel on Vick?

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid drew headlines recently when he made comments that seemed to indicate he might be considering changing his starting quarterback.

Fantasy owners with Vick on their roster had to breathe a sigh of relief when Reid backtracked and was adamant about Vick being the starter, but Vick's six interceptions and two lost fumbles this year have to have those same owners wondering if it's time to start putting together their own Plan B at quarterback.

After reviewing the tape, it's clear alternate options are almost certain to be a necessity in this case.

Vick not only has the eight aforementioned turnovers, he also has racked up eight bad decisions in only three games (a bad decision is defined as a mental error by a passer that leads to a turnover opportunity for the opposing team).
