Please forgive my ignorance. What is a 'taxi squad?'

In dynasty leagues, it lact like a practice squad where you can stash young players until they are ready for the regular roster. You can't put then in a starting lineup until they are put in the regular roster though.

For the deepest of leagues, add Devin Moore to your radar, RB, Seattle.

 

Not much in front of him, and he looked pretty darn quick last night. Certainly a better prospect than Forsett. He will probably be a practice squadder this year but is one of those guys that could play himself into playing time next season with a strong preseason next year.

Is Devin Moore still in the league because this statement looking back with hindsight makes me chuckle a bit.

Goodson may be in an interesting situation this season but thus far, none have lived up to the sleeper tag.

 

Goodson is a 1,200 yd back waiting for his opportunity.

So then you'd probably agree, then, that Goodson could also flourish in the system should D-Will part with the team and your boy J-Stew gets injured. :wacko:

 

No I don't agree. I think Goodson is a very nice complimentary back but is not a feature back by any stretch. He'll flourish as a pass catching compliment to Stew (If/when D-Will departs and I've invested a TON this year in anticipation that he does).

true, but Scott and Goodson should be rostered in just about all dynasty formats.

 

I think Brown tore his achilles? If so, he's done.

I know they should be... I just got the impression he thought this was just started today. If not, sorry. Dont want him to get mad at me. :wacko:
