Not missing games might be worse since you'll have to play him if he's out there regardless of if he's a decoy or not. Sometimes it's just better to sit and get better than to keep aggravating the injury.Balzac wrote: ↑Tue Nov 21, 2017 10:17 amThe injury myth has been laughable as well. He has missed 17 games in 7 years, 12 of which came from a season ending injury. Dude plays hurt, because every nfl player plays hurt. There is just more of a spotlight on Jones because of his status in the fantasy realm.
Age is an issue, but still a few years off. Definitely not a Calvin issue. Calvin was being force fed on a terrible team that continued to lose. He was burnt out. Jones isn't being force fed and they are winning. He may have other reasons to walk but it isn't comparable.
There wasn't much of an inkling that Calvin Johnson was going to retire until he did and everyone was like, oh yeah, it was obvious that he was done even though it was a total surprise. Not saying Julio will retire. Just saying that players can get tired of the nagging injuries and think about quality of life after they have $100 million in the bank. There was a rash of players retiring around age 30 just a season or so ago. Just be open to selling your assets if the right offer comes in.
