Default add shaq?

I'm in a roto league, with nine teams. Shaq is a free agent and has been looking pretty good thus far. Problem is, he is one of those undroppable players in my league. Should I add him to my team? I'm thinking he'll probably miss a lot of games due to injury.

My team is already weak at FT%.

Dropping Josh Smith who's out for only a few weeks = Fantasy newby...Who in their right mind would do that...Hell it was probably the best player on his team too lol

Thing to remember about Shaq is he won't play back to back games. Gotta keep track of him so you don't accidently start him over someone else.

I disagree Shaq really hurts your FT% in roto. He will miss a lot of games and the only reason I would pick him up is if I could drop him later. Your team looks really awesome though so do what you like

Congrats to the lottery winner that has the first waiver claim in your league.
