These scores, which range from A-F, give predictive analysis using data on how these injuries have affected the athletes in the past.
The scoring system used on Fantasy Football: Injury Report Card takes a variety of factors that could influence player abilities into account, including:
- Player Injuries
- History of Concussion
- History of Season-Ending Surgery
The most important elements of this scoring system include Level I and Level II injuries.
A Level I injury requires arthroscopic or open surgery that sidelines a player for 5 or more months, and involves a weight-bearing joint. Level I injuries also have the potential to psychologically impact a player's performance.
A Level II injury may require arthroscopic surgery, but typically results in less than 5 months of recovery time. Any injuries that require non-surgical treatment also fall into this category. These injuries do not affect weight-bearing joints, and do not have a significant psychological impact on a player's ability to perform.
