I say this every year but it sure does look like there are a ton more injuries this season to key personnel than in years past. Whether it's the new rules, harder hitting or just fluke plays, more starting fantasy options are coming up lame on a weekly basis.
These type of game-missing injuries play heavily into this week of Love/Hate as we have one of each that have been affected by an injury. On the plus side, one big injury usually makes way for another player to step up and perform so if you are behind the eight ball already this season, those are the guys you should be looking out for.
