As far as I know, that is not the case. If you DON'T play someone, their dev value may be reduced. The outcome usually means you get a positive dev value, however the average form can change. Somone who does not play may have a loss of form, and someone who DOES play but plays badly may also have a loss of current form - again, the average form takes this into account. Aside from this, I don't know how the logic works -- ell or odwin or haden are best to ask about these things!
