Laurent Duvernay-Tardif becomes first NFL player to opt out of 2020 season

Kansas City Chiefs starting RG Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, who holds a doctorate in medicine, has officially decided to opt out of the 2020 NFL season, and will instead continue working at a long-term care facility in Canada helping to fight COVID-19.

Fantasy Impact

The news comes just hours after the NFL and NFLPA agreed on opt-out options for players who are high-risk and for players that want to voluntarily opt out for other reasons. While a courageous decision, it’s likely to be considered a voluntary opt-out, which will pay him $150,000 rather than the $2.75M he was slated to make this season. Duvernay-Tardif becomes the first player to officially opt out, and it remains to be seen if others around the league will join him in sitting out the 2020 NFL season.
