Injuries are unavoidable. They happen every year to some of the best players in the league. Even though they can suck the life right out of your team, you deal with them and move on because, hey, this is fantasy football, not fantasy badminton.
Week 8 gave us another crop of injuries to thin out an already depleted league even more, so with four more teams on a bye this coming week, what do you do? Hopefully you stashed a little depth on your squad that you can just plug right in there...but what if you didn't?
This is where the all-important waiver wire comes in handy, and this is why you need to know exactly which players to pick up.
