View Full Version : Do you draft injured players?

Theyve got 10-11 picks and 1st round projections Philip Merling (hernia) and Stewart (foot) both have had surgery, do you draft these 2 and take a gamble?

Maybe with one of the extra 3rd round picks or a 4th rounder, but not earlier.

This is a huge draft for the Bengals. If they draft properly and well they can contend this year. If not, they'll go right back to being the Bungals. They're teatering on the fence right now. I really hope they don't waste early picks on skilled positions like RB, WR, CB, etc. They must shore up the trenches and LB.

Yeah! Well sorta, I drafted Chris Henry in a later round last year. I guess he isn't really an injured player, but similar -- Did fantastic for me down the stretch, helped me win the whole thing in my league :D
