Brett Favre’s return to football is the biggest story in the NFL, but he’s just another guy in fantasy leagues.
Entertaining press conferences and announcer compliments don’t count in fantasy leagues, just numbers. And Rotoworld’s expectations for Favre aren’t that different than they would have been for Sage Rosenfels.
Ultimately, they are both high completion quarterbacks that throw too many interceptions. The Vikings should remain a run-first team, and Favre’s pass attempts could drop while throwing to an average receiver group.
Plus there’s the tiny concern that Favre is turning 40, hasn’t worked out with a team all offseason, and couldn’t convert deep passes last year.
Let the guy at your draft who has a number four jersey in his closet draft Favre. We’d rather take guys like David Garrard or Trent Edwards, who should provide equal production at a cheaper price.
And with draft day fast approaching, it’s that time of year to start checking out Rotoworld’s lists of rankings, tiers and cheat sheets, so you are prepared for draft day. (And with the season coming soon, these little plugs that help keep the lights on are almost over.)
