After playing so well in 2009, Vikings QB Brett Favre does not look like a guy fantasy owners can trust this season.

Following his usual act of reporting late and missing training camp, Favre got off to a terrible start, throwing for just 198 yards per game with one TD and four interceptions in the first two games. It was expected that he would start off rusty, but he was expected to shake it in Sunday's cushy home matchup with the Lions. That didn't happen.

Favre once again had a poor showing, posting just 201 yards, one score and two picks against Detroit's porous secondary. This was probably the easiest game he'll have all season, and he bombed once again.

Besides the fact that a bum ankle has basically made him a statue, the 40-year-old has little-to-no rapport with his receivers with Sidney Rice out until midseason after hip surgery. Percy Harvin was the only guy who did anything on Sunday, and Bernard Berrian has been nothing short of terrible all season. Without Rice, the old gunslinger looks lost.

A look at Minnesota's upcoming schedule is all you need to realize Favre isn't about to rebound anytime soon. It's a daunting slate the rest of the way, with the Jets, Cowboys and Packers coming up after the Week Four bye. If you've been going with Favre as your starter, it's time to look for somebody else. His days as a No. 1 fantasy QB appear as good as over.
