    I want him on the field. He can make plays.

    If you’re carrying 6 you might as well use them all at points in the season.

      Doubt he's red shirting. Eased into things early on maybe.

        More than that, though, this is because of special teams. With teams no longer allowed to form a wedge on returns, linemen have less utility outside that capacity. A premium is put on players on the field with speed and blocking ability. Linebackers, tight ends and backs become the new brick mortar core of your ST unit, with corners and receivers being the gunners.
        Just when I was getting ready to take a leap off the ledge because they kept Bierra instead of Holland, here comes Kaylor to talk me off it with logic & reason. Thank you for saving me from myself!

              I'd hit that like the side of a tree on the forest moon of Endor
