Injured in 2005, So Are Now Undervalued

Cameron did not have any leg injuries. It was all in his face. Last I read his vision had perfectly recovered so he should be good to go.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Perez wasn't necessarily injured, he just had a really really crappy year, which may have been an aberation, but who knows? And Drew, well he's always injured.
Pavano and Mussina come to mind though, but I personally won't be picking Mussina.
Rolen is another injured player who should be healthy, but I don't think he lost any value.
The big Unit lost some value but that's because of age and not injury, but perhaps the two are linked.
And for the real risk takers/gamblers out there, you can always pick Prior and/or Kerry Wood, both of which have experienced a steady decline in value over the last 2 seasons.

Wasn't he out for about 2 months after he kicked something and broke his toe?

Perez is fortunate from a fantasy bashing perspective that Mr. Beltran, Mr. Thome and Mr. Beltre where around last season. Otherwise he would be wearing the Fantasy Bust of the year crown.

Here's my favorite...a lot of people didn't take note that Matt Holliday missed a month with a broken pinkie last season. Give him another 100 at bats in 2005 and he would be an established #1 OF in 2006. Playing in Coors, Holliday will be worth almost $30. Pick him and your odds of winning your league will go through the roof.

Maybe you have a case for Javy, but Freel has always been injury prone and Schilling is over the hill.

I'll second JD Drew and Oliver Perez.

Berkman will be a top five 1B and top ten OF.

I'm worried about Rolen still, but he is is good 2nd tier 3B.

Carlos Beltran will return to the top tier of OF.

Bobby Crosby will emerge as a top 10 SS.

Bank on Nomar to have a big year with SS, 1B, and 3B eligibility.

Hmmm... possibly... but he sucked at the start of the season so his injury couldn't have had anything to do with it. well maybe it made it so that he didn't suck any worse during the 2 months he was out. :-D
