What does loss of Rivera and Wahle do to Packers?

Now that the Cowboys and Panthers have raided their 2 best linemen, how much does this hurt their fantasy guys...Ahman, Favre, Walker?

honestly, if I were Favre, I would see no reason to come back now, it would be suicide. Without Favre, everyone on GB takes a huge hit (obviously)

The GB running game the past few seasons has been awesome and although Ahman certainly is a talented back, the other backs there thrived in that system quite well too which tells me it's more about the greatness of that Oline than any particular runner. IMO, Green's value takes a big hit here as well as that entire running game. Favre should now see little reason to come back and if he does, I think his #s become adversely affected as well.

Javon Walker's value in this, however, may not be too greatly affected. You've got to figure that defenses are going to be at least a little more effective in stuffing the running game there so that should mean more looks in his direction and he proved last year that he can be an elite WR in the league. If anything, perhaps now, he slides a little bit on people's draft charts and may be had a little bit lower.

My guess is that Farve has told the front office of his intentions(ie. retirement) and the fallout from his decision is taking place before our eyes. The FO knows they'll have around a two year grace period after Farve's departure, so why do it piecemeal? Blow it up now while you have confidence and patience of the fans, then rebuild and put a contender on the field in '07-'08.

He barely made my top 15 list before this. He might even fall a little more.
