anyone taking a flyer on....TO?

Postby jayday » Thu Nov 10, 2005 10:37 pm

i know the eagles have said he's done....but its gonna go to the courts/players union/whatever....i hear they are asking the eagles to cut him after the suspension, but i dont think the eagles are obligated to do anything but pay him.....so anyways, in the unlikely event he does play....he could be valuable come playoff time....

obviously you would only do this if you have a spot on your bench you can afford to waste.....but if you were fairly sure you are going to make the playoffs, would you take a flyer and pick him up off waivers?

just wanted to see what everyone else thought?

If you're almost positive you're going to the playoffs it wouldn't be a bad idea to hold him until then. Otherwise I'd drop him for guys who will help you win immediatly.

I did seriously consider trading for him though because his value is essentially zero.

In a keeper league, I would definitely stash him til next year... But in a redraft I wouldn't waste my time... Andy Reid seems like he's hard-nosed enough to stick by his guns and not allow TO to play from here on out....

Aside from that, the Eagles are in last place in the NFC East...

There is very little chance they win their division, and they'll be competing against the following teams for a wild card bid:

St. Louis
Washington
NY Giants
Dallas
Tampa Bay
Carolina
(and possibly even Minnesota)

The odds of them picking up a wildcard spot are slim...

Mathematically, I wouldn't be surprised if they are out of it by week 15... In which case, there is ZERO chance TO makes a comeback performance in the fantasy playoffs...

well.. i have him and I'm not dropping him. I have a feeling we'll see him playing again.

If you have someone riding the bench week after week.. I'd probably pick up T.O. just in case

If you have some bum to drop then you could pick him up and stash him away until we hear what the arbitration has to say about all of it.

Waiting for arbitration. Too much talent to just drop unless it's for sure for sure. You know if he comes back he'll be monster, too.

I picked him up and dropped McCown. There's got to be someone on your team you can drop to take a chance on this stud showing up the last few games.

I traded for him last night in my keeper league. He was essentially an add-on to the deal and since I'm a borderline playoff team, he could potentially help me for this year too.
