Mike Sims-Walker | WR
2011 Fantasy Football Outlook: All those fantasy owners who hoped to see a Sam Bradford to Mark Clayton connection got a swift kick to the groin this summer as the team signed Mike Sims-Walker, then announced that Clayton wasn’t fully back from his knee injury last year. The Rams have a million receivers in camp and while all of them bring something to the table, they will probably do more to enhance Bradford’s fantasy value, rather than give themselves start worthy numbers for fantasy leagues.
Sims-Walker could stand out as he provides a big target for Bradford to work with especially in the red zone, but who knows if he will have the work ethic to be a factor on a regular basis. In the end, Sims-Walker struggled with being the man in Jacksonville, and I don’t believe he is worth drafting in fantasy leagues, although I wouldn’t be surprised owners feel compelled to draft him late.

It looks like Mike Sims-Walker is going to be looking for another team this off-season as the Jaguars don’t want him back and why should they. Sims-Walker had a breakout season in 2009, but if you look at his numbers he failed to even reach 900 yards receiving, so how much of a breakout was it?
I anticipated that he would develop into more as the Jaguars were clearly in need of a No.1 receiver and Sims-Walker is the first receiver to show life of being that guy this the team had Jimmy Smith and Keenan McCardell. Maybe we should have seen this coming as Sims-Walker was suspended for a game in 2009 because he missed time at practice for personal reasons that weren’t excusable.
In the end, it’s hard to know where this once promising receiver will land as teams like the Dolphins and Texans have squashed possibilities that he might play for them. It’s clear that the book on Sims-Walker is that he’s a pre-Madonna, can’t press coverage and has poor health with one of his knees. Don’t look to Sims-Walker as a draft-able option this season.
2010 Fantasy Football Outlook
2009 Fantasy Year In Review: Mike Sims-Walker suffered through two injury filled seasons before he finally stayed healthy in 2009. During the early and middle parts of last year Walker was having a great breakout season as he was worth starting every week.
Unfortunately, the last six weeks or so wasn’t very good for Walker as I believe he hit a wall. Last year was the first season Walker had been through a sixteen game year, and it seemed like he was a little slow at the end.
2010 NFL Fantasy Football Player Rankings: I don’t expect Walker to have a slow down towards the end of the season this year as he is better prepared to handle a full schedule. Assuming he can stay healthy, Walker is a good bet to be a top twenty fantasy producer at receiver.
Look for David Garrard to call up Walker’s number early and often this year as he should threaten for 90 plus receptions in his second full season.
