If what Kiper says is true, and what most of us said btw, then GR cost himself millions not playing this season. If he plays, legit top 5 pick. Now he probably slips to 12 to 15 range. That’s a lot of money left on the table. But I guess if he is legit he will make it up in second contract.
If he goes top 15 with no mileage it's a good decision. The trouble is, his 'flags' are quite the wildcard. If he slips past 15 or so the view of teams will become clear and he risks slipping pretty far.
