Longtime KUBIAK user here, first time poster.
I've been thinking about high risk players and wondering if they're being undervalued on KUBIAK because of one simple fact: when a player is injured, or otherwise not starting, you start someone else in his place.
For example, Michael Vick has played 12-13 games over each of the last three seasons, so it makes sense that his risk is red. However, for those 3-4 games where you don't have him, it's not like your team gets 0 at QB during those weeks. Worst case, you would pick up a QB off the waiver wire. Best case, you drafted a decent backup QB. Either way, you'll get some fantasy points during those non-Vick weeks.
What I'm getting at here is maybe Vick for 12 weeks + replacement QB for 4 weeks is better than say, Matt Ryan (Green risk, assumed to play all 16 games) for all 16 weeks.
Any thoughts? Or is this already baked into KUBIAK?
