Slated to start in place of Sean Lee. Thoughts?
... with a good chance to keep the spot even when Lee returns, I imagine. Lee is just so fragile and has looked like he's either not 100% or has lost a lot of his game to the litany of injuries over his career.Yep. Picked him up LVE yesterday and I'm starting him immediately. Dude played 33 snaps on Sunday, and racked up 9 solos, 2 assists and a tackle for loss. Should be gold while Lee is out.
One of the blurbs on Lee mentions injury to both hamstrings... the guy is just too fragile and he's 32. His play early this season, his history, and his age don't bode well for him making a big push to unseat LVE. I think it'll take injury to LVE or a complete on-field implosion for Lee to have a significant impact once he returns. IDK the staff, though. If they are Chucky types that are dead set on playing a veteran then I could be way off. To me it looks like they tried to give Lee the veteran nod and he was not very good and then started missing time to injury but it looks pretty clear who the better backer is, at this point.Interesting take... I was just considering trading LVE for some running back depth but might hold and see how it all plays out. They'll find snaps for a healthy Lee but LVE might be the three down guy out of the two...
Given Lee’s lengthy injury history, sluggishness to recover & the fact that even at 100% he’s been far less effective this year, I’d say Lee is a drop regardless.The Lee guy in my league actually dropped him (Lee) yesterday. He obviously gets the same vibe about LVE that I do.
Agreed.Kind of irritating we pay for the rankings and as of today they still have Lee a top ten LB and Kirksey, who is on IR listed in the rankings. Those early rankings need to be adjusted each day at least on the level of taking off disabled players and adding in the players who move up and down in response to those injuries. Cannot just post once early in the week and then let it ride, at least on a pay site
It could be worse you could look at rankings where Norton has McDougald as the 6th ranked DB in my scoring system and he plays like the 106th Ranked DB. I had him out for Bethea but followed the rankings and put him in. I think in all the time I have used rankings both offense and defense that if I had a guy in before I looked and followed the rankings at least 67% of the time it ended up screwing me over. Honestly not sure why we even use rankings these guys know no more than any of us who play this game. This year more than any year I have learned not to look at rankings when making lineup decisions it's just better to lose on your own then follow others only if you are truly 50/50 on a call should you look at rankings because 2 out of 3 times your gut is usually right.Kind of irritating we pay for the rankings and as of today they still have Lee a top ten LB and Kirksey, who is on IR listed in the rankings.

Well thanks for nothing Norton. This is your living do your job better.Norton has explained why it doesn't come out prior to most waiver runs, and his answer is that it takes too much time. Basically, he goes through every game and just doesn't have the time to knock it out on Tuesday. I will say this past week I was shocked that it came out on Wednesday morning/afternoon. Ususally it comes out on Thursday.
Pretty sure this is his 2nd job, and his actions are telling us that he'd rather keep his primary job than live on what he's getting here.Well thanks for nothing Norton. This is your living do your job better.
Yes. That's what I was referring to. Thanks. He's been a solid pickup for me so I'd like to keep that going.I think he will be fine. I don't see him coming out very often even with Lee back (I assume that is what you are referring to about playing most of the game). I have no reservations with starting him ROS.
