Favre says he's "willing to give it a try"

Despite battling two fractures in his left ankle, Vikings quarterback Brett Favre hasn’t ruled himself out for Week 8.

“I’m willing to give it a try. I want to play and I want to help this team win,” said Favre.

While that’s all well and good, owners are still advised to look for another option this weekend. Favre currently ranks 27th in scoring among fantasy quarterbacks and is averaging just 11.8 points per week.

In addition, the 41-year old quarterback ranks second in the NFL in interceptions (10) and has thrown just seven touchdown passes this season.

Throw a busted ankle into the mix and you’re not exactly looking at a whole lot of upside.
