Javon Walker

Postby Stelly » Wed Aug 08, 2007 9:30 am

I feel like the only person in the fantasy football world who does not have a man-crush on Javon Walker this season.

I understand that he is an extremely talented WR, but I see him in a very run heavy offense with a very young QB, and that scares me. I'm more inclined to pick a Roy Williams or even Housh or L. Evans over Walker.

Am I totally crazy?? What am I missing?

not crazy at all...an aging rod smith on the other side means double coverage on walker will be the norm....at least 15 WR's i take before looking at walker.

good luck.

I doubt Rod Smith starts opposite Javon Walker this year. Brandon Stokley is listed as the other starter right now, and a lot of people think Brandon Marshall will land that spot eventually (once he gets healthy enough). Rod Smith may not even play this year, from what I have heard.

I think people like J-Dubs so much because he once was a top-10 WR, and now he has the young Brett Favre AKA Jay Cutler throwing to him. It reminds people of Walker's great season back in Green Bay, and he still is young enough to produce for several years.

Not crazy at all. I think the same way. ;-D

Rod Smith is also likely to start the season on the PUP list, so Javon is going to get all the attention from DBs. And I don't think Javon will be able to put up numbers near what other teams with 1 good WR have been able to put up (i.e. Lee Evans and Andre Johnson) because Denver has their running attack and a decent o-line.

hmm. no one thinks that the running game will open up the passing game? :-?
javon will get open. javon will get his. i don't see how the situation this year is any different than it was last year in the second half of the season. i'll take him. go ahead and pass on him.

I agree. He had a decent season last year, but nothing spectacular. No reason for it to be any different this year, except Cutler seemed to favor his TE's and other WR's more than Plummer did, so that could hurt him some. He's the #1 WR on a good offense, there's no way he won't put up good numbers, I just don't expect a top 8 season out of him.

No one is saying that he'll ignore Javon on draft day. At least no one has said that yet. :-b

philosophically, i prefer capable wideouts on teams that have poor defenses but adequate offenses and often play from behind,,,Denver is once again touted as one of the better D's in the AFC...combine this w/ a "run 1st" mentality on the O side....i'll take BOTH roy williams and calvin johnson of the lions expecting they'll be in an all-out aerial attack playing catchup in many games...beats watching the broncos run the ball the last 20 minutes of a game sitting on a lead.

good luck.

He's 9th or 10th on my list. He'll likely add on 50+ rush yds and and rush td as well, which is nice!

Javon Walker's last 8 games last season:

30 rec., 415 yds, 3 TDs.

Expecting more of the same of that isn't real exciting for a guy getting drafted as high as he is.

I'm not going to completely ignore J. Walker, I just think there are better options around the same spot in the draft. I would not want him as my WR1 (which is what he is being drafted as), but would DEFINITELY take him as my 2nd WR.

Lots of people think he has top 5 potential, and I just don't see it at all. In a different offense wiht a more experienced QB, I agree, but not in Denver with Cutler being so young and inexperienced.
