I think you are talking about a player whose only maybe 75-80 percent of what he was a few years ago. He's going to play regularly and be somewhat productive when healthy, but he'll probably miss a bit of time and be forced to overcome reduced mobility. However, that doesn't make him an undesirable option. He looked good when paired with Nick Schultz late in the season last year. But if you are looking for Whitney to return to fantasy prominence, you'll likely be disappointed. I think he'll be an effective but replaceable fantasy d-man meant for deep leagues only.
