NFL fantasy injury report
That play probably won as many matchups as it lost, and it's one of those things that make the fantasy playoffs so exciting and frustrating at the same time. The other is injuries. But with injuries we can at least make some reasonable assumptions and educated guesses that help stem the tide of unpredictability.
