Drafted on Saturday night after the Jerrick McKinnon news broke about his ACL and missing the season. Someone in our league (not myself) drafted him anyway in the 3rd round and is now upset. For reference, we use ESPN as our platform.
Who is more at fault, the guy for not being up-to-date on the McKinnon news or the commissioner/leaugemates that let him draft McKinnon?
I can see it multiple ways. In an age of instant access to news and information via smartphones, it should have been known or at least researched. With two minutes per pick and the little Q next to his name the guy could have quickly looked it up. On another hand, ESPN should have changed the rankings or could have been quicker updating the information. I’m not sure if anyone else in the league knew, about it either.
