Do I Drop Manning For Another QB?

I already have Vick, strong rb's but a very week WR core. So given Manning's uncertainty (got him in the 6th round, so wasn't a total waste), do I drop him and go for Henne, Fitzpatrick or Grossman? This knowing Vick will likely get knocked out at least a few games and risk Manning coming back after week 9 and going to a rival?...

Or do I hang tight and hope Vick holds up until we know more about Payton's status/recovery/IR? The risk there is the semi-decent free agent qb's will be gone by then (12 team league where td's are 10 points)...

Since I am short on WR's, I need to keep as many as I can to see who pans out, and I am already thin at RB because of Steven Jackson's injury. This means I really only have Manning's spot to drop for another qb.

Any help would be much appreciated!!!

Nine weeks is a long time in fantasy football, and Manning's recovery could well take longer than that. In particular, if the Colts keep playing the way they did this past week, they will be out of the postseason and there will be no reason to rush Peyton back. Especially since you have a (currently healthy) Vick.

That said, I'd like to see who your WRs are that you are hanging on to.

Big Snacks

I've got:

DeAngello Williams
Jonathan Stewart
DeMarco Murray

Percy Harvin
AJ Green
Lance Moore
Brandon Gibson
Deion Branch
Owen Daniels (TE is same as WR)
Rob Gronkowski

Thoughts on which option? Or which WB is my best pickup (Fitz has same bye as Vick, but I'm not worried about that given Vick's injury history)...
