Boom: Wes Welker - Randy Moss, ADP, and Housh have all had great seasons, but most of the time these guys were all taken by the end of the fifth round, if not earlier. Welker was a much, much later pick, and he has turned into one of the best fantasy receivers as a player that was commonly taken in a double-digit round.

Honorable mention: Derek Anderson

Bust: Shaun Alexander - Only two games with double digit fantasy points? Wow. There is no one that has performed below his draft position like SA has. SA gets the nod over players like S-Jax, Rudi, etc. because SA has played in every game. I know he hasn't been healthy, but he's been healthy enough to play.

Honorable mention: S-Jax, Rudi, Benson (SA Jr.)

You read my mind. B-)

I also need to qualilfy that a bust, IMO, isn't a player who got injured, but rather a player who is underpeforming while healthy.

QB - Tom Brady, apparently he thinks he's playing in the Arena Football League. On pace to shatter virtually every single-season passing record and he was probably taken as the 3rd quarterback in your league.
RB - Adrian Peterson, because there's no way anyone could have predicted he'd have 1,000 yards by mid-season. It's crazy to think a rookie might go 2K, but Peterson's a serious contender.
WR - Braylon Edwards, if there was ever a posterboy for the "3rd year breakout" wide reciever, he's it. Try nabbing him in the 9th round next year. :-°
TE - Dallas Clark, a tight end likely taken sometime in the bottom half of your draft that has numbers that compare nicely with Antonio Gates.

QB - Phillip Rivers, considering how well he played last season, he's been terribly inconsistent this year in an offense that should be more lethal in the air.
RB - Shaun Alexander, there were those who felt Alexander would return to prominence. 3.3 yards per carry and two rushing TDs later probably makes you wish you had passed on the former stud.
WR - Reggie Brown, so much for having the spotlight all to himself. After being named the undisputed #1 wideout on the Eagles, Brown has yet to find the end zone.
TE - Jeremy Shockey, albeit, his numbers aren't horrible, but you need more than 300 yards and two scores from a supposed "elite" tight end.
