You tie up a DL spot and the return date is always a little shaky and so are they once they make their first few starts. And by the time they might find their groove, the season is nearly over.


If one of my regular starters aren't on the DL you should ABSOLUTELY fill your DL spots. Would you leave one of your bench spots open? Absolutely not. So why would you leave your DL spot open. Now if one of my regulars goes down and I need that DL spot, I'll definitely drop whoever I have stashed. Otherwise, its worth the risk stashing a guy on the DL. However, I dont like drafting DL players, I'd rather wait until I get fed up with my last few picks and then make a move for a DL player...

I think Sheets and Bonderman may start on the DL.

Prior of course.

I don't think Sheets will even be signed this year
