J-Walk part 2?

Postby Nohl » Wed Sep 29, 2004 7:13 pm

The question plain and simple: Will Javon Walker have a week (I know 200 yards and 3 touchdowns wont happen) like last week. He was Farve's go to guy againts the Colts but I think that was basically because Green wasn't getting it done on the ground and they needed the points. This week the Packers play the Giants so I'm thinking that againts a weak defense like theres Green will have a huge day, leaving J-Walk in the dust. Would it be a better idea to start someone along the likes of Andre Johnson, Santana Moss, or Reggie Wayne. Is this only the beginning for J-Walk?

Santana Moss and Andre are both better starts than Walker IMO regardless. Walker's good, but I don't think that he can repeat what he did last week.

I'll admit as a Giants fan our D is weak, letting the Packers get the early lead and burning the clock with Ahman running. I wouldn't expect as many looks as Javon got last week, but he still should be good.

In week two Javon had over 100yds, the next week 3 TDs and over 100yds. If he doesn't have Favre's attention and respect now, when will he. Add the dropped passes by Driver, Fergie's injury and I can't find and reason to sit him.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?

If you have a hot player, I say ride him until he cools off. Start Walker.

Considering Matchups, I would probably start Walker...

JAX defense is TOUGH, and I don't think we'll see huge passing numbers out of Indy... I'd expect about 240 yards at the most, and with 3-4 viable receiving options, and Stokely with a hot hand, I'm not sure Wayne is a lock for very much this week...

Santana is facing Miami, and they still have a top flight defense... Again, I'd expect to see about the same kind of numbers out of Penny as Manning, and New York has other options, so I don't think you are guaranteed anything out of Moss...

Andre Johnson is facing a MUCH improved Oakland defense that is getting lots of pressure out of its line... Carr is good, but I think the young guy might be in for a lesson in collapsing pockets this week, and no doubt Johnson is going to be facing Woodson with help from Ray Buchanan all day... That sounds like picks to me... Especially with Dom Davis out...

The Giants are 8th worst in the NFL when it comes to giving up FF points to WR's... In my league, they give up an average of 24.2 FF points to the wideout position... However, they are 13th best in the NFL when it comes to giving up points to RB's... They give up an average of 16.6 FFP to the RB position... I can see Walker having a big day against New York....

Santana "Moss tallied 12 receptions for 208 yards and a touchdown in two games against the Dolphins last year."

I would start him. Penny is now healthy too.

Yeah, and 61 of those yards and the TD came on one pass play at the beginning of the season thrown by Testaverde in a game in which Moss had 142 yards... BEFORE he broke out and became the number 1 in New York... He was a sleeper WR then, who was covered one on one by the #2 CB, and he burned him deep and made a diving catch in the endzone... No one saw that coming, as he was an unknown at that point...

Have a look at the last game of the season for a more accurate estimation of this upcoming game:

66 yards, 0 TD's.....

Very sound advice, I would update "estimation of this upcoming game" to read "estimation of this upcoming season average".

A lil homer, but I like javon this week against the giants, but I also like the packers other recievers, because I think after last week they're going to be covering Javon hardcore.. Moss agains the dolphins tho, I'd start him over walker any time.. I don't know, personal preferance but I'd go with moss probably.
