Good depth gives you options and a slim chance to overcome injuries. Your starters start for a reason. You pay big bucks for a reason. No matter how many "Next man up" cliches you want to cite, injuries matter. They are not an excuse to give up, but they are a valid explanation for dips in performance.
Ultimately those dips will hurt you, especially if they pile up. That's not an excuse, it's reality. One no GM or coach can overcome. (With exceptions that prove the rule of course)
