There is nothing more effective at turning your fantasy team's roster upside down than the reality of injuries in the NFL. Today players are stronger, faster and more aggressive, making injuries a serious concern at every major offensive position. Thus the game is at a crossroads between that increased injury risk and creating a safer playing field for its players.
