Just checked out Yahoo. J Upt has been dropped by 5000. Whoa. You guys willing to give up on this guy after 5 games?
And why not? Because he may possibly be fantastic some day, maybe even next week?
In the meantime the rest of us not in deep leagues or without large benches have rosters to manage. I mean really I hope he's not starting for you.
I like having some potential at the end of my bench, but if I have a need, it ain't a keeper, and that guy just ain't getting it done, then he's gone. There's more failed prospects around then there are realized prospects. Yeah I may regret it, but sometimes the sleeper and prospect love around here is just mindboggling.
I'm rethinking the whole concept of benches for fantasy. I love them, and love to stash sleepers, prospects and would be closers as much as the next guy, but really, if you want a player then why not play him? Maybe I'll do a benchless league next year for those who are willing to walk the talk.
