    Is Tarvaris Jackson a sleeper?

    I have the opportunity to trade Philip Rivers for him.
    Neither will start on my team.
    Should I trade Rivers for Jackson?

    Although I think TJ will have a better season this year, I just don't see him lighting it up with respect to fantasy numbers.

    If you have a roster spot open, go ahead and pick him up just in case, but I wouldn't waste a spot on him.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Fantasy-wise, Tarvaris Jackson is a waste of a roster spot.

    And I guess you're basing that off of last year's stats?

    With his ability to make plays with both his legs and his arms... I would think that would help.

    But I know Jack Shidtt (great guy) about fantasy football.

    I base my FF opinion off of what I feel that player will do in terms of fantasy value.
    And there are 20+ QBs in the NFL who I feel will have better fantasy value than Tarvaris.

    As a fan of the Vikings, however, I feel he will be more than capable of leading the team to 10+ wins, even if his fantasy numbers suck.

    Thanks for your response.
    I had the same line of thinking.
    With A.D. running the ball, and Chet getting his carries how good of numbers could TJack actually produce.
    Either way he would be my 3rd qb.
    Behind Brady and Campbell.
    Brady will start every game.
    The only time he might get the start would be on NE's bye week.
    That is if he produced before that time.

    Unless you are in some crazy league with 2 starting quarterbacks and 12+ teams in it, Tjack has no role on any fantasy team
    We're bringing purple back.
