I'll be honest, I laughed when I heard the news that former Pro Bowl wide receiver Javon Walker was going to sign a contract to play with old Green Bay Packers teammate Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings. I mean, how long has it been since Walker was a relevant fantasy option? Let's face it, 31-year-old receivers who have barely played over a three-year period don't often make for fantasy sleepers.

Well, as a Sidney Rice owner -- I just paid what I thought was a sweet $18 for him in a mock auction Monday -- I'm not laughing anymore. It's pretty clear now, following the news that Rice reportedly had hip surgery Monday, that Walker could play a role on the Vikings. Then again, I'm kind of still laughing about this. Javon Walker? Really?
