Favre Retired…

Brett Favre FINALLY retired…..at least that is what the national pundits are saying….

Well this changes my previous article on QB’s. Obviously take Favre out of my list. This is BAD for Minnesota. Every offensive position player gets downgraded without Favre. Jackson and Rosenfels (whichever one wins the starting job) are MAJOR downgrades at the position. I would not draft either QB unless you have an endless supply of Rolaids.

Sidney Rice, Percy Harvin,┬áVisanthe Shiancoe, and Bernard Berrian basically fall right off of my draft board. At least the first 4 rounds. I will say this means AP’s value may rise. We could see the 2008 AP that was leading the NFL. Good news for those that have the #2 draft pick. Rice turns into a WR 2 (assuming his injury is not as serious as it looks), Harvin a WR 3/4, Shiancoe (not even draftable), and Berrian turns into a waiver wire pickup in my eyes. Some will say I am being dramatic but without a seasoned legit NFL QB at the helm the Vikings are going to have some serious issues. Dare I say Mike Vick becomes a Viking? We shall see…

Does anyone else share my panic? I doubt I’m alone. I know my loyal follower ZACH is in trouble since Favre was his starting QB in his keeper league.

    I am SO glad I traded away Shiancoe, when I had the chance!!!!

    Fantasy Fluckie what kind of factor will Toby Gehart be with Brett Farve and will his value diminish if Brett Farve does not play?

  3. The Fantasy Flukie says:

    The whole team’s value drops without Favre (including Gerhart). Gerhart at best is a Chester Taylor (last year) type player. At worst a handcuff that might give you a week if AP gets banged up. Not really a fan of his especially since they talk about AP catching more balls this year.

    @Prrot head: Yea, smart play…. Shiancoe will be valueless unless Mr Favre shows back up.
