Daily Dr. Roto: Dealing with Fantasy Baseball Injuries -- A Four-Step Plan

Injuries are a part of the game, both on the field and for Fantasy owners. How you deal with them can be the difference between a minor setback and a catastrophe. Dr. Roto teaches you how to survive the worst and make the most of a bad situation.

Dealing with Injuries: A Four-Step Plan

There is nothing more deflating to Fantasy owners than when their players get injured. Whether it is a guy on the 10-Day DL or a player out for a month with a strained hamstring, injuries are the bane of a Fantasy owner’s existence. The great Fantasy players are those who figure out how to deal best with adversity. With that in mind, I will give you four simple steps to follow when one of your players gets injured to help you avoid tumbling in the standings.

For purposes of this example, let’s assume that your player is out for two-to-four weeks (i.e. Gregory Polanco).

Step 1: Check your reserve squad

Do you have someone you can put in who is already on your team to fill in for that player? If you look at your reserve squad and see Max Kepler, then we are ok as he can fill in just fine for a few weeks. If you look and see Whitt Merrifield, we are in all kinds of trouble, and you will now have to go to Step 2.

Step 2: Scour your league’s waiver wire

First I like to sort by overall at-bats to see which players available are getting the most playing time. Next, I will sort by the category that I am losing the most from the injured player’s absence. In this example, since Polanco is a great all-around talent I am looking for a player who might have a little power and speed. If you are in a shallow league (10-12 teams) you should be able to find a replacement player with little to no problem. However, if you are in a deeper league (14-16 teams) you might be looking at Robbie Grossman and Tyler Collins being the best available replacements. Make sure you bid in FAAB on the player(s) you need, paying an extra 5-10% markup depending on the quality of the player available and how desperate you are in need to find a replacement. However, if the waiver wire is not working for you, it’s imperative that you go to Step 3.

Step 3: Find the ideal trade partner

Start going through the other rosters in your league to see if you can make a trade. When doing this, I look for a few things: 1) an owner in the bottom half of the standings (usually he/she wants to shake things up), 2) try to find a weaker owner who is not going to ask you for your best player back in a deal. You just lost Polanco; you can’t trade Mookie Betts too! Next, start to look for underperforming players who you liked before the season started. Two players come to mind for me right now are Phillies OF Odubel Herrera and Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez. Both Herrera and Cargo were expected to be top 30 OF back in March and are struggling in May. It’s possible that the other owner might not extort you too much for a trade for guys he/she is secretly dying to get rid. You might just be able to make a deal for a player who is coming into a hot streak after starting out cold.

Step 4: Don’t rock the boat entirely

The key to withstanding injuries is to make sure that your team doesn’t lose major ground while your star player is out. I am not as concerned with gaining points, as I am with LOSING points. I figure that if I can keep my team from falling too far in the standings, I can figure it all out and improve as soon as my key player returns to my lineup.

I encourage you all to follow these simple steps when one of your players gets hurt. It’s not easy to avoid the Fantasy mine fields, but if you do you might just win a Fantasy Championship!
