Part of the reason for that may be deep leagues, there not being anything worth dropping him for, and casual FF players that never add or drop anyone. :-?

I dropped him and was able to get Leon Washington off of the w.w. in return. Not quite the 5th round pick I had in mind. I will be crossing every Oakland player off of my draft board next year. Thats some great advice I will accept.

Someone else dropped him like an idiot. The reason he is an idiot is we have 2 IR spots available so you don't have to get rid of a solid player. You can keep him on IR and pick someone else up. When he becomes better than questionable you must make a decision.

I grabbed him and put him on IR.

Only league I have him in is a 14 team ppr with seven bench (drafted him at 3.13) so there is squadoosh on the WW. I have no plans of dropping him barring a roster emergency but obviously he is a big disappointment.

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.

Or run a sub 4.40.

Made an early trade that included him, but have since dropped him too.

Oakland players aren't even worthy of IR spots. :-b

I've dropped him in every league I owned him in. At this point, he's clearly not worth a roster spot.

Underperforming is one thing. Underperforming + injury = waivers for me.

I'm making a valiant effort to pay less attention to "names" this year and more attention to production. And I truly believe that random waiver wire scrub that becomes viable due to injury is going to be much better this year than McFadden will. He is, and will continue to be, in a time share environment even when he becomes healthier. Plus every team is going to be begging the raiders to beat them with JaAwful's (as the red zone channel's commentator so eloquently phrases it) arm this year and he's just not going to do it.

Other big(ger) name guys that I've dropped this year in favor of guys picking up the slack are: Torry Holt, Jamal Lewis, Chris Henry, LenWhale, Reggie Bush, Derrick Ward, Greg Olson, Donnie Avery, Willie Parker, Anthony Gonzalez, Ted Ginn, Laveranues Coles, Jonathan Stewart, Beanie Wells, Eddie Royal etc..... These are all guys who aren't worth keeping right now in yearly leagues if you ask me, yet people are holding on to them for name value alone. If you dropped them early and took a gamble, you'd have guys like Pierre Garcon, Sims-Walker, Manningham and maybe Steve Smith (NYG), Garrard, Mendenhall etc...

I know who I'd rather have right now, that's for sure.

I view McFadden as somebody who depends a lot on his speed to be effective. I just don't see him regaining much confidence after that injury. To me, he's really OUT for 6 weeks before he becomes usable, and with the coming bye weeks, it's not enough to keep him.
