4th year in a 10-team "dynasty" league. It's a weird format where we only have 15 roster spots and keep 10, but have to drop 1 of our top 5.
RB- Forte, Rawls, Rashad Jennings, Yeldon, Deangelo Williams, Christine Michael
WR- A. Brown, OBJ, K. Allen, J. Gordon, Kevin White
TE- Greg Olsen
I've run into a string of bad luck with my RBs. A combination of bye weeks, injuries, and refused trades forced me to drop Carlos Hyde mid-year last year. The same week caused me to miss out on David Johnson on waivers (right before he took off). Forte sustains a minor injury and suddenly loses his guaranteed RB1 status. I am not an occupant of the CMike hype train, but Rawl's injury has made me nervous. Of course, Jacksonville decided they needed Ivory instead of rolling with Yeldon...ugh.
To the bolded... no it's not. It's same argument people try to make with CEO's make so much more than the workers. The team owners are the ones that take all the risks, they are the one's that pay out the huge signing bonuses without knowing whether or not the player will be worth it, they are the ones that pay for the medical staff, cleaning staff, maintenance crews, coaches, ticket sales people, etc. and they are still responsible for paying that whether the team is good or bad, whether the team makes money or loses money. They are also the one responsible for having the vision to determine where their company is going to be in the next 10 years and implementing plans NOW so they can be there in 10 years.
I mean, he missed the Chargers entire training camp and is now sitting out preseason as well. I'm having a hard time imagining what he'd bring to the table this season at all. Although he was pretty much the top pass rusher in this past draft, there are probably 10 edge guys in next year's draft class that are all better than him. No need giving up a pick, or more, when that pick can be used on a player that plays the same position at a higher level.
Understood. But my response to your comment is: either don't play in the NFL or don't have the Players Union sign the agreement.
I have yet to see a player give back money because the team thought the player was mailing it in. It mayvhave happened, but I don't remember it.
