Ask the Expert Question for the week: Which oft-hyped team and/or players is headed for a letdown this season?
Without a doubt the Minnesota Vikings are a train wreck waiting to happen from both a NFL and fantasy point of view. Last season was magical with Favre and his career year. This year everyone has the same expectations yet Brett is recovering from ankle surgery, Sidney Rice is out six weeks at a minimum, Percy Harvin still has migraines and the head coach is bitching about the Saints treatment of his QB in the NFC Championship game. This is a team looking over their shoulder and not out in front at where they are headed.
NOTE: this was posted last Thursday before the NFL Kickoff Game between MIN @ NO.
