Impact of Injuries
I'd like to see more data on man-games lost and it's affect on winning. Even some simple macro-level stats can start a conversation, such as 1 injured centreman reduces the chances of winning by X% league wide.
Moreover, I think a simple look at team stats after a player's injury could be a useful to examine how valuable a player is to a given club. Ultimately I'd like to know how much a team is worse off with Player-X out of the line-up.
To add fuel to the fire, I'd like to know which injuries are the most detrimental to a player's performance. Assuming the recovery time is identical, Is a broken foot worse than a broken hand at reducing point totals? Average recovery times?
This stuff and more would be gold for fantasy pools.
