The most likely candidates are Carnell Williams, Edgerrin James, Domanick Davis, Ronnie Brown, Kevin Jones, Willis McGahee, Julius Jones, Jamal Lewis, Corey Dillon, Fred Taylor and Reggie Bush.


Thats almost all of the starting RBs. If the majority of them are busts, then doesn't that make them the average and no longer busts?

There's no way Dillon, Taylor, or Foster would put up anywhere close to 1600 and 16, no matter their health.

He does point that out about Jones in the article.

Former first-round pick Kevin Jones struggled so poorly last season he's considered a sleeper in some circles.



I think its funny how he uses so many ifs in the article. So when he gets called out on the article he can just say "I said if".

After reading this "article" I feel compelled to quote my 4 yr old. "Duhh!"

Nothing new here. All these players have been discussed at length right here on this board. In fact, this is where he's getting all his information I'm sure of it! I'm watching you Rotter. O:-)

This is why there's a "Roger Rotter Rule." No advice from this so-called "fantasy expert" should ever be heeded. In fact, in many situations, Cafe members would advise doing the exact opposite.

See also: the Michael Fabiano Rule & the Brandon Funston Rule.

This article is pretty much pointless when you name 10 Rb's and Wr's to bust.

Worthless :-°

I'm not so sure I can agree with that, at least in regards to Taylor. When healthy this guy is a fantastic runner. IF he managed to stay healthy for a season, I think he could get very close to those numbers (1580 and 12, rec and rush combined). Maybe not quite 16 TDs, but you get my drift. Dillon might get the TDs, but never the yardage (I'll say 1350 at best), and Foster might get 12-1300 and 8.

On topic of the article...we should do a list of which sports/fantasy beat writers will be likely to bust or boom. The former list would be very, very long.

i completely agree :-)

and i love how they mention both corey dillon and maroney as value pickups. choose one! :-°


I'm not sure either of you know what a sleeper is.

Lewis has an ADP of 28th overall. Early 3rd round isn't a sleeper, it's RB2. And yes as an RB2 he could be a bust.
