As many of you remember there used to be 3 status ratings for the final injury reports before a game. These were, out, questionable, and probable. Probable is no longer a designation which leads to some confusion, especially if you play fantasy football. Out of course means a player will not be active on game day. Questionable now means a player may or may not be active. It always did, but with the removal of the probable designation, it will be even more of a gamble to include a “questionable” player on your FF roster. Questionable used to mean there was a 50/50 or less chance a player would play. With the removal of probable, which used to cover the 50/70% chance a player would play, you now have to gamble on someone who is anywhere from less than 50% probable to play to 70% likely. This means FF managers will depend greatly on a teams active reporting to manger their teams. Unfortunately many leagues do not allow changes after the first game is played, which happens on Thursday night. I imagine some changes have already been made in this regards for many FF leagues.
