Busts are a way of life in the Fantasy Football world. Every year 1 or 2 guys you draft early end up not producing up to standard. The key to fantasy success is avoiding these busts like the plaque. Below is a list of blooming busts to steer clear of on draft day.
Maurice Jones Drew - With MJD not even close to reporting to the Jags and the season a week and a half a way we don't have any confidence that Drew will be able to replicate his 2011 season in which he lead the NFL in rushing.
Michael Turner - In our opinion Turner the burner has flamed out. Turner is a slow and plodding runner who is a non factor in the passing game. Let the other guy draft Turner in the second round
Ahmad Bradshaw - Bradshaw will most likely start strong this season but finishing is going to be the problem. Bradshaw is a fragile player at this stage of the game and the Gmen drafted a young stud in David Wilson. We wouldn't take Bradshaw any higher than a third RB.
Benjarvis Green-Ellis - The Law firm isn't in New England any longer. The only thing he really has going for him is he is the clear #1 in Cincy. His running style doesn't instil fear in opposing defenses. He gets tough yards but will be keyed on a lot more than he was in New England.
|AHHHH DON'T HIT ME..........|
Ryan Mathews - Well what do you know the season hasn't even started yet and Mathews is already down with a pretty significant injury. This guy has burned me in consecutive seasons now. No way I am going to make it 3 in a row.
Philip Rivers - Rivers just doesn't have anyone to throw the ball to. Robert Meachem? PLEASE. With Gates yet another year older and as we mentioned above Mathews already injured I just don't see Rivers bouncing back in 2012.
Michael Vick - Another injury risk here that we aren't willing to take. Vick will not make it 14 games let alone a full season. He is just taking way too many shots. With the Eagles weakened Oline we are passing on Vick big time.
Vincent Jackson - Jackson took the money and ran all the way down to Tampa Bay. Unfortunately his back account won't be able to get him the ball deep. With Tampa instilling a raw power running game Jackson will get lost in the shuffle.
