some people thought LJ would have a down year so he's not as big of a bust. SJax is the biggest bust so far with his decimated line. Second has to be Drew Brees, but he could still pick it up. Lee Evans can still pick it up. However, SJAX has zero chance considering how banged up his line is right now.

Here is Evans game by game stats last year[url]
http://www.nfl.com/players/leeevans/gam ... eason=2006[/url]


he really only had 3 games over 100 yds, one was a 265 yd, 2 td game explosion, another was a 145 yd game, but without losman i dont expect to see changes...maybe after this bye if losman can go we will see him get back to his old self...although he has struggled more thsi year then last, last yr his bad weeks were 5 or 7 points, this year their have been numerous games under 5 points already, his best being a 8 or 9 point game last week...


so if losman comes back im holding onto him, one reason being i cant trade him for shit, so i think im stuck with him and ill ride or die with him so be it....if he cant give me just 5 games, where he puts up over 15 points ill be happy, but last year he had about 1300 yds so he will have to really pick it up to keep pace, but he did get hot down the stretch and ill be rooting for the same, last week isnt a tell tale sign, they went short because of the rookie qb, losman would of been bombing every series out there

Brees is the bust of the year IMO. LJ is a close 2nd!! Jackson isn't a bust, he's hurt. Injuries should be discounted when talking about busts. I mean you shouldn't be playing him while he's hurt!! It still affects your team, but there is a big difference IMO, between an injured stud and a non-producing one!!

another (related) interesting yardage stat for his career is ypg/month

Hard to call an erractic WR a bust. Regardless, Edwards/Losman is his problem not his ability. They don't even closely involve him in the offense.

Brees, LJ, Benson, Gore are far bigger busts.

me too...all this love for Trent is sort of ridiculous. He couldn't beat Dallas w/ all those turnovers given to his team. They need JP back if they want to start winning.....if not, stick w/ Trent for a growing pains rest of the season.

I am one frustrated Evans owner who is resigned to keep him on the bench until he starts producing. I don't want to release him with his history of second half production. Plus, his opponents look great during weeks 14-17 for the ff playoffs (Miami, @Cleveland, NYG, @ Phi).

On a side note, I think I have spotted the difference in matmat's picture: one of the horse's @sses has a tail, the other does not. Do I win a prize?

I am hoping he isn't a bust...he was dropped in my Yahoo! Winner league a few days ago and was I lucky to see that i had snagged him with my #7 waiver...With my wide receivers being Harrison, Galloway, Boldin and Branch, i am in desparate need of a consistant receiver, and i hope at some point the Bills will actually be able to establish a passing game where Evans can put up a little production...if not, it's going to be HELL for me at WR this year, with all the injury plagues/inconsistencies with my studs... :-t
10-Team Yahoo! Keeper League: TheYayArea (in 3rd Year now) 11-0!

Starters:

QB: Tom Brady
WR: Terrell Owens, Randy Moss, Marvin Harrison
RB: LaDainian Tomlinson, Marshawn Lynch

Hard not to call a No. 1 receiver that has scored more than 1 fantasy point just once in 5 weeks the biggest bust.
