Right, which is even more of a reason they'd want to use it on a guy they could afford to sit for 8 weeks rather than a guy they'd want back asap.

I can see the argument that they'd rather wait until week 6-8 to use it if they need to so they could have a full roster of players for the meat of the season and they guy that was out would be back right in time for play offs.

But the saving it for an important player argument doesn't make any sense to me. What exactly are you gaining by saving it for a more important player that may or may not get injured?

Nothing.

In fact you'd potentially be losing a roster spot for nothing if that hypothetical more important player never gets injured.

If you use the rule on demps you can add Nolan without cutting anyone. That gives you time to think and evaluate who you will cut when demps is back healthy and all the while you still operating with a full set of players.

If another guy gets injured later but not season ending, oh well, a bubble player might get cut. But I don't see how it matters in regards to the actual player getting injured. Hence me repeatedly saying saving it for a more important player doesn't make sense.
