2017 FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: GOOD START BY ADAM EATON DERAILED BY KNEE STRAIN

Washington Nationals outfielder Adam Eaton was placed on the 10-day DL early Saturday after suffering a left knee strain where the severity is still unknown.  Based on the fact Eaton was placed on the DL so quickly means that the team likely saw something bad on the MRI and so he could be out past the 10 days easy.  With Eaton sidelined, his fantasy baseball owners lose a valuable OF 3 who was hitting .297 with 2 home runs and 3 steals on the season while manning the leadoff spot for the majority of this young season.  While Eaton is not a star player, his ability to quietly help in all five standard ROTO categories was a plus not to be taken likely.  His absence means that Chris Heisey and Michael Taylor will step up to play more but both only have some appeal in NL-only formats.
