New, comments

Today’s injury report will reflect the player status for the game. With the new rules for reporting we’ll briefly cover what the new status reporting means.

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.
