    Injury Question - Priest Holmes

    Here is teh question, since Holmes is out for teh seasaon, but may return next year, and I may want to keep him, how do we deal with it. Do I have to "keep" him on my team all season or as he listed as IR can I drop him, and will he be "protected" for me and next year?

    What say you?

    If you want him you have to keep him on your team, unless you can trade him for some good draft picks. That frees up your roster, and lets you pick someone else if he doesn't go next year.

    I agree. Has to be on the roster at the end of the season to be eligible as a keeper.

    I think teams ought to be able to keep an IR player with the caveat that the replacement player may not be a keeper.

    Sorry, but even though this is fantasy football, it's still football and injuries are all part of it. I'd suggest holding onto him until we have to announce our three keepers and then go for him in the first round of next year's draft -- you'll probably get him....although......I expect that it will be a moot point once LJ posts 100+ yards in the next 7 games and is the undeniable starter next year.
