I am super excited to be connected with Jeremy in the podcasting that is centered around these same topics.

If you’d like to hear more discussion on the Psychology of Injury, listen to Jeremy and I talk with Dr. Edwin Porras (@FBInjuryDoc) on Episode 7 of the Dynasty Self Help Podcast (@dynastyselfhelp).

Much like the professionals at the beginning of the article, proceeding with or without a player comes down to our ability to discern which injuries are a “habit” and which are unrelated and don’t consistently lead to a decline in production. I am unwilling to invest trade capital at related ADP value for certain players based on this concept, and it is different for every player and every situation.
At a low ADP, I’ll take a flier on such a player. If they hit, they have out performed their rank. If they miss, it didn’t cost much to take the chance. But whether or not I’m fully informed (as I am not a doctor nor do I play one on TV), I typically do not invest in players higher up the scale. For example, Will Fuller is a stud when on the field. He will not be on any of my teams due to his cost vs the likelihood he doesn’t finish the season. Conversely, Keenan Allen is and has been a stud. I aggressively sought to purchase him after receiving “the label” after a couple of seasons on the bench. The injuries were relatively unrelated. I mean, who gets a lacerated kidney and what does that have to do with running routes.
Whether any of these categories describe me, it is important to remember that each owner must be comfortable with the players on their teams regardless of the psychology of it all. I have enjoyed the series to date. Thanks for posting.
