I bought my first car in about a decade last week.
It’s a cute little Chevy Spark with sensible gas mileage, good safety ratings, plenty of clearance to deal with Midwestern winter snowdrifts. I made sure to buy it pre-owned and certified, so I had the full maintenance history on it. I thought it a responsible choice for a soon-to-be responsible teacher and husband. As soon as I sat behind the wheel, though, something took hold of me. The feeling that this zippy little car gave me was like a mix between Ricky Bobby and the Looney Tunes’ Roadrunner; all I could think was “I wanna go fast. Meep meep!”
That’s the joy of rostering a running back like the Detroit Lions’ Ameer Abdullah — he’s small, he comes at a good price in dynasty leagues, and boy does he go fast. It appears, though, that once again speed has killed, and our mercurial friend has found himself with a foot injury and a ticket to the Detroit injured reserve.
Abdullah spent the end of last season on the shelf, too, and is starting to become a bit of a durability concern. How does his latest dent affect the Detroit Lions’ players in dynasty leagues?
He also likes coffee. You can talk to him about IDP, other dynasty things, and various caffeinated beverages on Twitter at @JayArrNFL.
