This is bang on! They need to start making some personnel choices. They did the right thing by drafting the BPA but it's time to start cashing in those chips to make a proper team. Right now this is not a team, it's a collection of a few very talented players of the same ilk, that alone does not make a team.

Sadly, one of those chips is not fully valued yet. Yak needs to start performing before his full value could be considered when trying to decide who stays and who goes.
