Lelie for Duckett

Updated: August 24, 2006, 1:39 PM ET
While Ashley Lelie and T.J. Duckett were certainly players in need of a change in scenery, that doesn't mean they belong to be trusted members of your fantasy football team. Let's examine this Tuesday trade and what it means for our game.

Lelie to the Falcons: Most observers believe that Michael Vick has needed people to throw to for years, but maybe Vick actually is the problem, not the wide receivers. Nobody was the biggest Peerless Price fan when he left the Bills for Georgia, but still, I've always believed the system held him back, not necessarily his talent. Let's take a look at Vick's favorite targets this decade. These guys aren't Pro Bowlers (at wideout, not the tight end), but would it even matter?

• 2005: Tight end Alge Crumpler was by far the most popular pass catcher, with 65 receptions. Brian Finneran, now lost for the 2006 season with a torn ACL and dislocated knee (people, do not draft him) caught 50 passes, but was a possession guy. Michael Jenkins and Roddy White combined for 65 catches. Woo-hoo.
