Vikings Football: Brett Favre a Viking After All | Football Rankings
I’m not sure what I liked most about hearing the news today that Brett was going to be a Viking this year. Maybe I like the fact that most Viking players is a now more valuable fantasy wise just because he’s on the team. Or maybe it’s the fact that I will still get to see one of my favorite players for just another season, even if he is a douche bag.
In the end I’m happy to see that I was right on my prediction that Brett Favre would be a Viking and this team is now primed to make a serious super bowl run.
Fantasy Football Shakedown
With Favre defenses will now be forced to respect the passing game and especially down the field. This will open up the running lanes and make Adrian Peterson the hands down No.1 running back to draft in any freaking draft (Even for you PPR players with an MJD man crush) format.
Beyond just making Peterson that much better this move will also make the Vikings Defense a fantasy elite this season as they will now benefit from the long consistent drives that this offense will have. Not only will the defense be fresh but this team should be in the lead as they will score a good amount of points this year and that will provide more opportunity’s for sacks as the opponents offense throws the ball more.
In the passing game all the receivers and tight end Visanthe Shiancoe are more valuable as they now have a legit quarterback throwing the football their way.
Fantasy Football Information on Brett Favre
While Favre’s return does make those around him better I wouldn’t recommend you draft this old man for anything more then a backup quarterback this season. This team is best suited to run first and play strong defense.
Brett will have some big days but he will probably not give you the consistency that you will need from him every week to be a good fantasy football quarterback.
