    I’m 0-2... injuries are hurting more than just my Broncos.

    Lamar, McCaffrey, Deandre Hopkins, Edwards Helaire, thought that’s a solid 4 but nah.

    Guess I need to update the list

    Walker is going to miss some time

    Devonte Harris may miss a game or two

    The injuries for this Broncos this year isn’t any fault of the players, coaches, “bad luck”, etc. it’s because I drafted many of them on my fantasy team just days before Von’s injury.

    Sutton was my starting WR
    Broncos Defense (Von, Bouye, Jones, Barron, Strnad)
    Lindsay my flex
    Lock a late round boom or bust pick
    Jeudy (thankfully he came back)


    Also had Christian McCaffrey for my first pick...

    Lamar is my starting QB and he’s on the madden cover too so he’s in for an uphill battle this year.



    All kidding aside though I deleted my fantasy football app and never touching it again.
    Dammit!!! :brick: :hammer: :doh:

    It's always a good idea to have good depth obviously but how do you plan using cap space to cover ALL positions?? Losing the starting RT, edge rusher, CB, WR, RB and QB??? Now the depth is getting hurt with Dre'Mont Jones out for 4-6 weeks.

    You can only cover so many basis with what cap space there is to work with. Not only that but you have to convince players to play a backup role for you when they might be offered a better situation somewhere else. It's always so easy to sit here and think or say "just get better depth" ....they obviously try to put the best team together they can.

    Pretty sure the attitude around here was playoff bound before all the injuries. It is a legitimate excuse for loss's and no team outside of SF has been hit harder.....
    I hadn't thought about this. You are absolutely on to something there. It's not like baseball where you can bring up guys from the minors to see how they play and then worry about them taking off to another team. Free agency seems to be very different in the NFL where players are changing teams like they change their underwear, (or at least you hope they are changing their underwear )

    Second, James was a waste of money. He should have never been signed. The reports coming out of Miami were that he lacks motivation and would quit once he got paid. Well, seems to be the case...

    I was not very happy with the tackle efforts the off season before James either.

    Our problem is not that we did bad things on the OT in 2020...our problem was we made bad OT tackles moves in 2019 and 2018 so by the time 2020 came around we had too many holes to fix them all.

    James was signed out of desperation and then was a gamble. Having the luxury (curse?) of hindsight we should have steered clear. His signing has hurt this team immensely.

    Injuries league-wide, I don't know if they are up compared to other seasons, but there are a number of players out. We just happen to be bearing the brunt it would seem.
