This may be a stupid question, but I figure, why not get my usage out of this message board, right?!? Haha

I have only 11 games remaining, and am back 2 games in the wildcard race. One of the best players (if not the best) had 97% stamina. I would like to rest him for a game or 2 so that he could go hard the last 9/10 games AND if I make playoffs he won't be too depleted. 

BUT, I also realize I will need all hands on deck for each and every game of these final 11 to be able to get that wildcard spot.

What would you guys do? Is 97 not that bad? So let's say worse case by 11 games he goes down to 92, is that workable still?

I think most people go all out when a playoff spot is on the line.    Personally, I generally don't play anyone below 100% but, as the season winds down and I need wins, they go as low as they go.

I haven't noticed a huge hit until 90%, so I'd say keep him in to try to make the playoffs.

Absolutely, you need to push him as hard as you need to to try to land a playoff spot.  He can rest in the offseason.

Thanks guys! Great responses! I try not to play anyone below 100% too in a perfect situation, but I figured the same as you guys, "all hands on deck during a storm" right?
