Can Greg Camarillo Make An Impact With The Vikings?

The Vikings receiver situation has garnered a lot of coverage the past week because it's a complete mess cropping up at a terrible time for a team that figured it was just getting matters in order by getting Brett Favre to report to the team. Instead, top receiver Sidney Rice looks to miss half the season, with significant doubts lingering around Percy Harvin.

Minnesota had considered to swing a more monumental deal to acquire restive Chargers wideout Vincent Jackson, but couldn't agree to his contractual demands. Instead, the Vikes were forced to be more conservative and instead trade for Dolphins receiver Greg Camarillo.

By any estimation, Camarillo is no fantasy stud. Appearing in all 16 games last year with Miami, he posted only 550 receiving yards and no scores. In making the move, however, he moves from the 20th ranked passing offense, which produced only 15 receiving touchdowns, to the 8th best passing attack.

If both Harvin and Rice are out for an extended period, Camarillo could be worth a look in a deep league. He's certainly makes for a more attractive commodity than Javon Walker, the Vikings other recently acquired wideout.
