McNabb says that he will play … will you play him?

Donovan McNabb‘s ankle is not quite as famous as Brett Favre‘s, but it is hard to argue whose is more important.

If Favre does not play, the Vikings still trudge on, especially with Adrian Peterson. If McNabb fails, well, there is going to be an awful lot of fail for the Redskins. That is one of the main reasons why I went with Favre over McNabb in my fantasy draft on Monday afternoon.

McNabb says that his ankle is not yet 100 percent, but that he is going to play vs. the Cowboys. Which is good because I have Clinton Portis on my bench. (And yes, I realize that my bench is like a 2005 Pro Bowl team — and trust me, I heard about it during the draft — but Portis could have some value this year.)

But I still would not recommend playing McNabb this week.

The Redskins scored a combined six points against the Cowboys in two games last season. Obviously this team has improved with McNabb, but not by that much. McNabb is a match up starter at this point until he proves that he can take off under new coach Mike Shanahan. McNabb probably should not start until Week 3 against St. Louis.
