Week 9 Projections
It's been a tumultuous 12 months for San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith. Five missed games during the 2013 season. Multiple run-ins with the law in the offseason, including reportedly yelling 'Bomb!' in LAX. Now, after pleading guilty to DUI and weapons charges, Smith was hammered ny Roger Goodell and the NFL, receiving a nine-game suspension to start the season. Unless your IDP league rewards big plays very heavily and has a deep bench, nine games is just too long to reserve a roster spot for a player, even one as talented as Smith.
