LeSean McCoy | RB BUF
Sure, he might actually avoid disciplinary action in his connection with a February nightclub fight in Philly, however, the guy will be 28 when the 2016 NFL season begins. Now, in redraft, or for those in keeper leagues that are only counting on keeping McCoy for 1-2 more years (max), he isn’t too risky. He could have a solid 2016, so don’t panic if you own him and have no super long term plans for the guy. But, we advise dynasty owners to shop the guy given he will be entering his 28-age season and has always kind of been an injury worry. He has played 12, 16, 16 and 12 games over his last four years, and the concussion issues will never vanish. He is a risky long-term hold, but should only be sold high.
Tony Romo | QB DAL
The Dallas Morning News recently reported that Tony Romo plans to undergo a Mumford procedure on his left collarbone. This is likely to take place in a week or so. This is not a good sign for Romo. The procedure is expected to lower the odds of him breaking the bone again, and the recovery timetable is 6-8 weeks. While many suggest that Romo should be healthy for training camp, and well before it begins, we say shop the QB just as soon as he gets back to throwing and healthy. Could he regain his previous form and never injure the collarbone again? Sure, but why take the chance if you can sell high later? Selling high now isn’t likely an option, again, wait until he hits the field and look back to healthy, as he will during camp and into the preseason. Of course, this is advise for those in dynasty/keeper leagues. For those in redraft leagues, I wouldn’t count on Romo unless you have an equal-type backup behind him.
