Imagine what Fantasy sports would be like without an IR (Injured Reserve position). Owners would be very hesitant to pick a player like Joffrey Lupul early in their draft mainly because he does not play a full 82 games, but when he does play he can cause some serious damage. Remember when he came back from his broken arm in the lockout shortened season and was on a rampage with goals, he has shown that he can consistently get 20 goals even when he is not healthy. Another point to keep in mind with Lupul is a possible reunion with Phil Kessel on the top line.

The last time Lupul played on the top line with Kessel he was a point per game player in 2011-12, so it could make him an attractive fantasy commodity. Lupul is ranked on at 129th but his health makes him a bit of a risk. Take into consideration that Lupul is a multi-positional player meaning he could play LW or RW. Players like him are valuable if you have a hole on a particular wing, Brent Burns and Dustin Byfuglien (who are considered both forwards and defencemen) are great examples of smart picks for Fantasy teams because of their versatility. Lupul can get 25 goals and close to 70 points if he can play at least 70 games but his injury history will probably haunt him again this season.
