It goes without saying that injuries have been destroying fantasy rosters this year. A lot of big names have missed time and each week that passes seems to add more names to the list of the fallen. Obviously, when players like Peyton Manning and Jamaal Charles suffer season-ending injuries, it can kill a fantasy team. Those of you still holding on to Manning, just give it up. It’s not happening. Colts owner James Irsay says it’s 50-50 whether he comes back this season, but Manning coming back after neck surgery to play for a team that isn’t a playoff contender is absurd. The Colts season was over as soon as they picked up the phone and dialed Kerry Collins’s number. Side note: You ever notice that Collins kind of looks like the dead kid at the end of “Stand By Me”? While big-name players being out for the season might have crushed your fantasy team, it’s the players dealing with nagging injuries that can really kill you. How can you count on someone like Arian Foster who’s been hit-or-miss as a result of reoccurring hamstring issues? The same can be said for Austin Miles and Mike Vick. There’s two ways to deal with this. You can either quit on the player and bench or drop him, or you can constantly monitor injury news like your creepy uncle who Googles “Selena Gomez nude” on an hourly basis. As far as advice goes, these tips fall in the “worthless shit” bin. So how can you rebound from injuries affecting your fantasy team? Looking at teams’ depth charts can be a good start. The Giants aren’t going to stop throwing the ball, and the success — both on the field and in fantasy — of Victor Cruz has proven that as he’s moved up the depth chart to replace injured players. While it’s likely too late to pick Cruz up in most fantasy leagues, his success is a perfect example of using depth charts as a stopgap for players suffering from nagging injuries. As with any speculation of this sort, caveat emptor applies. Buzzbin takes no responsibility for the waiver wire moves you make in your drunken Saturday night frenzy to set your roster.
