Minnesota Vikings Quarterback Joe Webb: Fantasy Football X-Factor

If you’re this desperate, then you must have already felt that you have won the fantasy football Super Bowl.  While Green Bay Packers backup Matt Flynn showed some surprises with 3 touchdowns against the tough New England Patriots, Minnesota Vikings backup Joe Webb may not show such promise.  Being the third option quarterback after both Brett Favre and Tarvaris Jackson being injured and now facing the Philadelphia Eagles blitz packages after facing the New York Giants and the Chicago Bears defenses.  In both games, he hasn’t scored a touchdown and 2 interceptions.  Now he has an average 39.3 quarterback rating.  I wouldn’t gamble a 39.3 rating even against the Eagles 21st-ranked passing defense. But there’s a minimal glimmer of hope.  If Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler can occasionally play as an elite quarterback, Webb might have a small chance of winning against the Eagles. The only possibly good game Webb may have is against the Detroit Lions, but even that’s a risky play.  Unfortunately, Webb should remain waiver wire fodder unless he can demonstrate against the Eagles that he’s more than capable.  If he does, he’s no more than a low-end QB2 at best against the Lions.
