Drafting the top ranked players is a great strategy but a major injury can derail your season before it gets started. An injured player is as good as not having that player.
If you drafted Jamaal Charles in the first round of the 2011 season you probably had an off year like I did. It's very difficult to replace a top pick via trade or the waiver wire.
This guide is designed to help identify the players that are the most at risk for injury based on their history and style of play.
To make this guide we accounted for years played, age, injury history, carries, receptions, passes, sacks and more over the past three seasons.
By no means does this guarantee that a player will be hurt but it should be taken as extra information to help make the decision between two players you are thinking about drafting.
