I'm with Mookie on this one. Yes, this is FF, so stats are the main thing. But Mcnabb is in a bit of a unique situation with his injury, and we have to project his value going forward
If Michael Vick was injured such that he could no longer run, it wouldn't make much sense to base his value on his prior games where he's run a lot. Likewise, anyone that has seen Mcnabb can tell that he is clearly not the same as he was preinjury. He has lost a tremendous amount of accuracy, and hasn't been able to scramble to buy time for those long passes like he used to.
Assuming this injury is not something that's just going to go away, I see Mcnabb falling drastically the next few weeks. Since the injury he has looked dreadful. He had a string of great games, then got hurt and had a mediocre game, a bad game, and a bad game turned good through some luck. This past game he benefitted from his defense giving up twice as many points as they have all season, and some good runs after the catch resulting in big plays on short passes.
He'll still be a worthwhile QB, but I can't see his numbers going forward being anything near what they were to start the year unless he magically heals up.

I'm sorry, but that is a poor approach to fantasy football. Aside from what Mookie pointed out, in that his FF production actually has been affected, we also get into the simple point of if you wait for it, then it's already too late.
Mcnabb makes a supreme sell high candidate in redraft leagues right now IMHO.
