You're having a great fantasy season, you drafted well at every position and have started the season with a bang. One Sunday while watching football, you are rooting on one of your fantasy players and then suddenly the player goes down with an injury.

It happened to owners of Tom Brady in 2008 and just last year to Tony Romo owners.
