    As anyone that plays fantasy knows, the Patriots usually have 15 players listed as questionable every week including guys like Brady, Wes Welker, BLloyd. Why do they get away with this? I thought the NFL was supposed to be stricter regarding how teams report injuries?

    And if this is allowed, why don't we list everyone we can as "questionable" just so the other team isn't sure who they will face.

    Seems shady.

    It is shady. But it's the Patriots, they bend the rules to their advantage all the time.

    I thought it was stricter in the sense that, they are supposed to report more injuries.

    Ravens got fined this year because Ed Reed said his shoulder was hurt and they hadn't been reporting him on the injury list. (even though he didn't spend any time in the training room). So now they list 15 players every game, anyone with a hangnail goes on the list. It's becoming a bit of a joke
