Week 10 Med Check: Hillis, Best, Charles look good to go, more analysis

It's Week 10, the glide path into the fantasy playoffs and, at this stage, you know your team. You're either positioning yourself for the playoffs or grumbling about what went wrong. The byes are about to go bye-bye and seeding is going to come down to what talent you can put on the fantasy field. Injuries are paramount, with many players who were drafted as keys back in August sitting on the sidelines or worse -- done for the season. In non-keeper leagues (which make up the vast majority of the fantasy football universe), losing a player to injury can be devastating, the rough equivalent of losing a draft pick. I did a quick look back at the expert ADP charts and tried to figure out just how significant those injuries would be. The concept of a fantasy "snake draft" is to balance the available talent through the first two rounds. We know there's more value in the No. 1 slot than No. 2 and so on, but the second round reversal should balance things out and reward those who do their homework. Six of the top 24 players on the board -- one quarter of the first two rounds -- have lost significant time to injuries. Of those, it's hard to say any of them were predictable. What's more intriguing is it appears consistency and durability might have a higher value to the experts than they normally indicate. The top six have been healthy all year. Sure, no one could know that Ryan Grant was going to blow out his knee any more than Randy Moss would be a Titan here in Week 10, but I can tell you if you're one of those players that's coasting in Week 10, you drafted consistency.
