PPD games prove we need IL+ in Fantasy Baseball
If a player has Covid, they can be put on the IL. If the rest of the players on their team can't play because the game is PPD, there's nothing a manager can do. They have to suck it up and run with a shorthanded roster.
We're already seeing PPDs messing with opening week. Stars like deGrom, Alonso, Soto, Turner, and more are forced to sit on the bench through no fault of their own.
If baseball had IL+, a manager could slide the PPD players over and pick someone up until their main guys are ready to play again.
Please, Yahoo. You did it for hockey. Do it for baseball, too.

Most things in life make no sense. This is NOT one of those things. IL+ in fantasy baseball is the only logical choice.

Please add this. This Mets-Nats series has ruined my week without it.
