It's been repeated over and over this season, but I just need to vent about the injuries/suspensions this season

I'm a super data-driven and analytical guy. It's part of my work background actually. I spend countless hours scouting and following news during the offseason, factor in injury risk, make spreadsheets to calculate stats and playoffs, draft the "perfect" team on paper, and am vigilant the whole season on the waiver wire. But my "perfect" team simply f-cked me over with missed time

KAT - of all the seasons for the "iron man" to get injured, barely played this year
Collins - suspension, missed 39% of season
Isaac - season-ending knee injury after 32 games
JJJ - knee, many weeks
FVV - missed 25% of games
Doncic - Ankle and nick nacks injuries, missed 20% of season
Favors - hamstring, personal, missed 30% of season
Conley - hamstring, missed 36% of season
Steph - (traded for him, so I can't really complain)

Now Dejounte - out indefinitely w/ calf strain

I managed 1st place for over a month despite having a dead weight in Collins, but gradually sunk lower and lower as the injuries mounted. Hung onto last seed, but then KAT and JJJ got injured simultaneously. That was that

Obviously I'm not alone - injuries really hit a lot of us hard. Just venting my shared frustration

Picked my team based on analytics also. Took Kat 3rd due to his iron man status and he has burned his owners. Lost Simmons, Butler is in and out and playing like trash lately, Ayton hurt and had to deal with Collins and Ayton eating 2 spots with no production when they were suspended. Horrible fantasy season overall

Seriously, this was such a rough season - one of the roughest ones in recent memory, in terms of players missing time. If you're into analytics then you know how much time and effort we put into this. It sucks to have so much bad luck happen out of our control. Feels like so much wasted effort, and makes me think hard about doing fantasy bball again next season

I’m just infuriated by this bum Elfrid Payton, not only is he giving me a major dud he’s killing my %s. It’s just been a really shi**y round of playoffs. Norman busted, ayton no INJ designation despite missing 3 straight games. Beasley disappeared. I just don’t get it

Sucks but that's also poor planning dude


Because I know who my playoffs opponents are ahead of time? 
 

Because I can just start my injured players and make the numbers better? 
 

Explain how to improve the plan.

That was quick. Woke up to find out that my PJ and Miles combined for 6 points in a double OT game plus Cam Johnson has mononucleosis. What the f---.

Add Elf going from statsheet stuffing artist to bum and Baynes ending his hot streak right as I stream him. Gotta love fantasy playoffs.
