floundering at the bottom of the league

If the team is still floundering at the bottom of the league, it may be time to make some changes and shake things up a little bit.

I wrote the above sentence. Would you use "floundering at the bottom of the league" to mean that team is struggling and is in danger of being kicked out of the league.(Is it called league, those European football games we watch)

Thanks

    Absolutely. A good use of the phrase.
    If you are wondering about the derivation - a flounder is a flat fish that lives flat on the bottom of the sea.
