Favre proves the tank isn’t empty yet

Just when it looked like this would be a lost fantasy season for Brett Favre, he went out and proved everybody wrong yet again.

After going weeks without a productive outing, Favre had one for the record books in Sunday's OT win over the Cardinals, throwing for a career-high 446 yards with two TDs and two interceptions. Considering that he also completed 77 percent of his passes, maybe the loss of WR Randy Moss was a good thing.

While the 41-year-old isn't going to rip up most defenses like this, he at least showed fantasy owners not to write him off just yet. If he can do this with the lackluster group of receivers he was playing with Sunday, things should only get better when Sidney Rice (hip) is back in the lineup, which could be as soon as this week at Chicago.

The other good news to come from Sunday's contest? WR Percy Harvin can produce well even at less than full strength. Playing with a fairly serious ankle injury that barely allowed him to practice, Harvin went out and caught nine passes for 126 yards in the victory. Regardless of the receivers he has around him, Harvin is going to find a way to catch passes and should be a weekly staple in your lineup.
