Im liking Javon Walker, because of what he can do with Favre. I may have been the only one to notice time and time again Walker go deep across the middle, jump and catch the ball all the time. He even pulled it off against the Eagles in their playoff game, with Brian Dawkins watching him

It seems every year Favre takes some player or player(s) with a limited skill set and makes them better than they should be.*

I think this year that person will be J. Walker...and this guy has more ability than most of the people on the list below.

*See: Levens, Freeman, Bennett, Driver, Brooks, Franks, Schroeder.

of course brett favre can make you a better player, but we are talking about a first round pick who has potential to be great on any team. he has great size, speed, and decent hands. hes young, i think people are just waiting for the time he will step up and become a player who may even start making favre look good (well, better).

are you kidding me?? come on man. favre has one of the strongest arms in the NFL.


HAD one of the strongest arms in the league. His age and his thumb injury have robbed him of his arm strength.

bagobones-

thats the most rediculous thing ive ever heard. the guy still slings it as good as anyone in the league. have u ever watched him on tv? or go look at his stats from last year. i belive he injured his thumb around week 8? i certianly dont see a decline in his numbers after that.

I really think Javon Walker will be a viable #2 WR for your fantasy squad this season. He put up 9 TDs last season, and I am looking for similiar TD numbers with improved yards and catches. He is a stud in the making.

LOL the first time I read this, I thought you typed 'computer' :-b

I like Walker for these reasons:

1) He has no competition...
2) ...but, unlike Lelie, he has a Hall of Fame QB throwing him the ball
3) Stallworth and Lelie were both projected to be nice mid round picks last year...and dissappointed many. I don't recall ever hearing much about Walker being a bust

Wow, so far after 37 votes it's fairly even with Walker up three votes over Lelie, who is two votes ahead of Stallworth.

The only reason I posted this question was because these kinds of players can be just as critical to your team as your first and second round picks, BUT not everyone is as keen on these guys (not EVERYONE is a cafe regular) as they are with the top 20. Depending on your league you may even be able to pick one of these fellas up in the 9th round or so. Especially in larger leagues, those late round picks will really make or break your season.

On a side note......I picked Lelie. Whoda thunk?
