Dropped McFadden..what did you do?

Postby SameSongNDance » Fri Oct 09, 2009 2:21 pm

Well, Peyton is on a bye next week in my 12-teamers and Hasslebeck was sitting on my WW's with a week 6 ARI matchup that I assume will be a slug fest. I cringed as I pressed the button to let go of my 4th round pick :-t. I just don't see DMC redeeming himself. I don't see him running at %100 with that type of injury for the rest of the season and he would need to be %150 to run successfully on what I think is the worst offense I've ever seen. Thankfully I'm rather deep at RB with CJ424, K. Smith. Julius Jones, Mendenhall and Coffee but that's besides the point. Which of you DMC owners have decided to drop him and who's holding onto him? What are your reasons?

so fellas, advice for next year...set up your draft boards like normal, then go through and draw a line through every name that has the words "Oakland Raiders" next to it. You'll thank me later.

unless of course something miraculous happens before next season....pretty doubtful though since Al Davis is a robot.

I followed some fellow cafe members and dropped him for Beanie Wells. Just see more potential out of him, and the 2-4 weeks McFadden is out is about how long I expect it to be before Beanie breaks out. If I ever start Beanie, it will be because he becomes the feature back and I know I can play him if need be, on the other hand I can never feel safe again starting McFadden.

I dropped DMC for Shonn Greene and no one has picked him up yet, goes to show you how sorry JaKerry Russell and Al Davis are.

I think Russell is sleeping with Davis. :-D

Dropped him after week three and he's still sitting on the wire.

Al Davis doesn't sleep, he's a robot. :-B

And you don't have to have sex with Davis to have a job with the Raiders, or be smart, or be in shape, all you have to do is be a yes man.

Glad to see I'm not the only one who made the move. Funny thing is he's still owned in 55% of all yahoo leagues and 80% of all espn leagues.
