Honestly haven't thought about him much. Will he be slowed in his route running while still recovering from the injury? Will the run heavy offense and a still effective Rod Smith hurt him?

I'm of the opinion that I'll let someone else have him this year.

I'd say about round 5 to 7.

Javon Walker has been going on average at about pick #47 and in the 5th round. The Broncos wouldn't have traded a second round pick if they didn't plan on using him. If you are expecting numbers like he put up two years ago in Green Bay, that won't happen. But he can be a good #3 or #4 for your team.

5th round pick is way too high for a WR3 or WR4

He's had practically the entire season to heal from his injury. This is very familiar to all fantasy owners who targetted Steve Smith in the 4th and 5th of last year's draft. I'm not saying Walker will be a huge steal, but given his past, his injury shouldn't prevent someone from spending a 4th or 5th rounder on him simply due to his upside.

Antsports ADP: 5.06

Fantasyfootballcalculater ADP: 36.4th pick

Footballdocs Projections: 990 receiving yards 7 touchdowns

"Walker was injured in the 1st game of the 2005 season and he has now been traded to the Denver Broncos. With the increasing age of Rod Smith, there is a good chance that Walker could have a fine fantasy season if healthy. However, it is hard to tell just how healthy he will be until the season plays itself out. Smith has led the Broncos in receiving the past 9 years, so it could be time for a change of the guard. Smith is a competitor and Walker will need to be healthy to unseat him, but there is a good chance of that in 2006. Just make sure you don’t overpay for Walker because he will be a huge gamble in 2006."

That's the key right there. Usually in the 4th/5th round there are solid WRs who aren't gambles. I'd look at him in the 6th/7th, but I get the feeling another owner will overpay b4 he slips that low.
