MLB DG: Disabled List Usage, the New Norm
Quite frequently we feel wronged when a key player goes down with some malady, even though injuries are part of sports. We rail against the injury, bitching about it to our friends and family, perhaps hitting the bar to drown our sorrows, without understanding that everyone in fantasy sports has a similar story (as I pointed out in my 2017 Tout Wars Review, on August 23rd I had twelve players on my disabled list). This article will attempt to address what happened last year when it comes to the totality of injuries. Were there more than normal? Did the new 10-day disabled list change the outlook of how teams handled injury? How should you handle the situation in your league heading into 2018?
