So many times on fantasy draft day, I envision myself borrowing Marty McFly’s DeLorean and zipping ahead in time to posts such as these. To help me identify the players who just aren’t worth drafting … at least at their projected draft slot.
Who has been the biggest 2010 midseason fantasy football bust? We polled our writers, regulars and fans and got the following. Feel free to jump into the debate by adding nominating your favorite bust in the comments below.
Jzak: Pierre Thomas, NO. Some would consider it taboo that I suggest a player who’s injured is a bust. But I was touting Pierre as a top 10 fantasy running back this offseason, and he had both the situation and talent to back up my bold claim. However, a combination of a Week 3 ankle injury and finding himself in the coaching doghouse for allegedly milking the injury has left him as a fantasy goat so far.
ep: Randy Moss, WR. It was a toss-up between Moss and DeAngelo Williams, but we’re getting vintage Raiders Moss out there. … And by that I mean he’s awful. … By that I mean I’d rather own Lee Evans at this point, and I wouldn’t recommend Lee Evans to anyone.
Sockonfl: Larry Fitzgerald, WR. One had to know that losing Kurt Warner at QB would hurt his stats. The Cardinals have gotten extremely inconsistent QB play out of Derek Anderson and Max Hall. I don’t see his situation improving. Definitely not worth the first or second round pick spent on him.
Consigliere: Jonathan Stewart and DeAngelo Williams.
Krause: Maurice Jones-Drew, RB. MJD has one TD all year! ONE! And that was against the poor run defense of the Colts.
Chinstrapninjas regular Chris Burgess: Ryan Mathews, RB. Most people drafted him to be a top RB2, borderline RB1. He’s not even close at this point. Offense is too pass-oriented.
KGSO sports radio host Jason Mals: TJ Houshmanzadeh or Maurice Jones-Drew
