Thanks Frog, whom brought this to my attention!
Joe Webb, who came in for Tarvaris Jackson against the Giants on Monday Night could very well be the starter this week if Favre and Jackson are ruled out. Joe is 6’4″ and was drafted with the intent of being used as a WR but since he was a QB in college many sites (including Yahoo) list him as a QB,WR combo. Interesting fact, he turned in the third highest rushing total for a QB in NCAA history as a senior year at UAB. You can read more about him at Wikipedia. His numbers at the UAB Pro Day are sick. Fascinating, if you are desperate for a WR and you don’t want to roll the dice on Anthony Armstrong or Jabar Gaffney. Maybe take a shot with Webb. If he starts, he could wind up with some decent statistics from the QB position in your WR spot. I would take that any day.
Of course this requires you to stay on top of his and the others practice habits for the week. Monitor them carefully if you plan to use Webb in week 15. Also, just pick him up just to show the other teams in your league you are on the cutting edge of fantasy knowledge.
UPDATE 12:09pm: According to ESPN Rumors, Tarvaris Jackson might be heading to IR later today. Giving Webb a greater chance to start.
UPDATE 2:33pm: It is official, the Vikings put Jackson on IR and I watched Favre on NFL Network Live giving a press conference. He does not look ready to play this game or any game. He just sounds defeated. I bet he stays on, just to mentor Webb. Patrick Ramsey was also signed to backup Webb.
