Fantasy football, just like real football, is always going to be impacted a great deal by injuries.
This past weekend saw several major injuries to players who had figured to be factors in every fantasy football 2013 draft.
Philadelphia Eagles receiver Jeremy Maclin suffered a torn ACL, Baltimore Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta dislocated his hip and Seattle Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin may or may not have suffered a hip tear as well.
It's always sad to see players injured, especially before they even get to play a game.
That being said, their NFL teams will need to carry on without them, and so will fantasy football owners who were planning to target these guys on draft day.
If you liked any of those players' chances, you thought there was something ideal in their playing situation, their style of play or a combination of both that was going to help them have a big year. It stands to reason that players who share those qualities with them should intrigue you on draft day in their absence.
There won't be any exact replacement for any of these three for your team, but the next three guys are potential replacements who can fill the same mold.
