I raised this issue awhile back, but I think we need to have a discussion about if we want to include injuries in the game, which I guess would likely include the above players as well. Of course they suck when they happen to your own players, but that's part of the game and by not including them we give certain teams a very unfair advantage. Teams that are built smaller to put up more points on lower lines do not have to worry about their guys not performing. Not to mention teams that are not built as deep, mine included ironically enough, don't have a disadvantage even though they put together a weaker team.
As I said earlier it is always lame to have an injury occur for your team, but that idea shouldn't be left to punish teams that have been built correctly in order to try and minimize that.
