Fantasy Football Injury Projections: Which players are most likely to get hurt in 2020?

Nothing ruins a fantasy football season like injuries. Thankfully, the folks at SportsInjuryPredictor.com have taken it upon themselves to assign injury probabilities based on players’ past dealings with various ailments. Of course, anyone could get hurt on an NFL field — it’s football, after all — but it would be nice to sit down for a fantasy draft and not have to worry quite as much about the inevitable injury bust.

The injury projections below are littered with players who have let fantasy owners down before, and injuries normally foreshadow more injuries. David Johnson makes the list after having multiple huge early-round letdowns due to injury; Rob Gronkowski’s here after a year off from football; and DeSean Jackson takes the cake of the player projected to miss the most 2020 games due to injury. 

Note: The following projections all come from the Sports Injury Predictor. We’ve listed all the players who SIP projects to miss two or more games during the 2020 NFL season. IDP injury projections can be viewed on the SIP site.
