Please welcome back Mike Sims-Walker from exile

Jacksonville wideout Mike Sims-Walker was making a claim for waiver wire pickup of the year. After going catch-less in Week 1, Sims-Walker exploded: he went for 278 yards and three touchdowns the next three games.

Last week, he was a late scratch against the Seahawks. Fantasy owners everywhere were caught off guard. Apparently, so was the rest of the Jacksonville offense. The Jags got blown out 41-0. Why didn't Sims-Walker play?

As you may imagine, the story is kind of awesome:

Sims-Walker reportedly missed bed check this past Friday night due to "a late-night rendezvous with a lady friend," the Florida Times-Union reports. As a result, he was deactivated for Week 5's loss to the Seahawks.

Should we forgive Sims-Walker? I guess it depends on if you started him, and if you lost.

Sims-Walker is back from exile this week, and he looks like a strong start. After all, the Jags are going up against the Rams, and anyone who goes up against the Rams looks like a strong start. So - barring another unforeseen late-night rendezvous - it looks like Sims-Walker should be the starting lineup, both for the Jags and your fantasy team.
