I don’t have much today, since we’re working on a larger update for tomorrow (Rankings, Cheat Sheet, Battles, ADP, and more), but what I do have could be very significant – and it’s not something that is “out there.”
I’ve mentioned many times how Henry is one-and-done for the year in the NFL’s Substance Abuse policy. However, I have recently come into some interesting information. The Denver Post reported back in March that Henry has been trouble-free since the drug incident two years ago, and that he will rotate out of the league’s drug program after the 3rd game of the upcoming season. This means that a failed test after that point would not result in a suspension.
I have not 100% confirmed this, but my guy in Denver, who covers the team, has told me that as far as he knows this information is 100% accurate. If it’s true, as long as Henry keeps his nose clean between now and Week Three, all worries about a suspension will be over.
So, if you want to be kind of a jerk in your league, I would make it a point to let everyone know that the prevailing information is that Henry is one drug incident from being suspended for the whole season (again, if this info is correct Henry technically would be through Week Three).
If that information causes Henry to slip to Round Two, then you’re going to get a great value.
