Is Mike Sims-Walker Overvalued in Fantasy Football?

July 25, 2010   ·     ·   Jump to comments

If you look at the aggregate numbers, Mike Sims-Walker had a good season. He caught 63 passes for 869 yards and seven touchdownss. In Weeks Two through 11, he averaged 86.8 yards per game with six touchdowns in eight games (he missed Week Five and had a bye in Week Seven).

That’s an average of 13.18 fantasy points per game, which justifies his ADP of 18 among wide receivers (52 overall) according to Mock Draft Central . Who wouldn’t want those numbers?
There is more to the story, though. For instance, he finished with an average of 29.2 yards over the last six weeks of the year, scoring just one touchdown over that stretch. Aside from Week 15's six catch, 64 yard, one touchdown performance, he was unusable in down the stretch.
He was also a guy to avoid like the plague in road games. His splits are staggering:
Home: 8 games, 44 catches, 637 yards, 6 TDs
Road: 7 games, 19 catches, 232 yards, 1 TD
What are you supposed to do with that?
