2011 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick
It's amazing what a little stability at QB can do for a team. Favre stepped right in at the ripe old age of 40 and had one of his best seasons of his career and nearly carried the Vikings to the Super Bowl (if not for one ill advised interception in the NFC Title game loss to New Orleans). Favre managed to break Joe Montana's all-time career playoff passing yards record, but I'm sure he'd trade that in if he could have his last pass back. He finished the 2009 season with 4,202 yards and 33 touchdowns compared to just seven interceptions. He eclipsed a 100 quarterback rating for the first time and set a career-high in yards per attempt. Despite playing behind an average at best offensive line, he was able help the Vikings become one of the more feared offenses in the NFL as they averaged 29pts/game and finished ranked 8th in passing (260 yards/game). He should produce stats worthy of being drafted as a QB1 in 10-12 team leagues. He has numerous receiving weapons at his disposal and one of the better running games in all of the NFL led by Adrian Peterson. One caveat is Favre required offseason ankle surgery and will be behind an offensive line that was not upgraded via the draft (and is coming off a disappointing 2009 season where they allowed 34 sacks -- a number that would be higher if not for Favre's quick release). Vikings fans and dynasty league owners of any Vikings players are thrilled that Favre returns under center as his presence greatly enhances the Vikings Super Bowl chances as well as the fantasy production of every player on the Vikings offense.
UPDATE: Unless you have been living in a cave, you are aware that #4 has returned to the Vikings. Monitor his progress during the final preseason games to ensure that the ankle is not limiting his production. You can't expect the magic of 2009 (33 TDs and 7 INTs) but he should remain a lower end QB1 despite being a 40 year old grandfather.
UPDATE: (8/24) With the loss of leading WR Sidney Rice for half the season, #4 probably drops out of the top 10 fantasy QBs and possibly behind Joe Flacco and Kevin Kolb.Last updated on Aug-24-2010 by Rob Warner
