The season is 1/4 over, and there are some people I'm very annoyed with. Name your top 5 busts so far:

1 Andre Johnson
2 Carson Palmer
3 Randy Moss
4 Ryan Grant
5 Chad Johnson

So far I'd have to go with Moss as being the biggest bust. He was picked by most who got him in the first round and he'd done absolutely nothing. Granted, it's not his fault Brady went down, but that still doesn't make him any less of a disaster as a first round pick.

Have to add
QB Anderson, Bulger, Kitna.
WR Holt, Roy Williams, Braylon Edwards
RB Jamal Lewis, Kevin Smith, Selvin Young
TE Kellen Winslow JR., Shockey, Dallas Clark
DEF Seattle, Jags, San Diego

All have underperformed well below expectations, though some showed a pulse this week.

Grant is by far the biggest bust on this list.

Moss is understandable with the Brady issue, and WR's are much more random anyway.

Mine is probably Andre Johnson.
He had a great Week 1, lost him due to weather in Week 2, and Weeks 3 and 4 have been bad.

Uh, how are DEREK ANDERSON and BRAYLON EDWARDS not on these lists??

Braylon was a Round 1 pick in my league, and DA was the 5th QB taken.

uhm how about Steven Jackson? Every year he's ranked at top 5, and whenever season starts he's doing no more then tier 2 back-up RB. And Im stupid for drafting him every year.

I personaly think it's early to be ranking busts.....but that said......I throw in my two cents. Moss (Randy, that is), Roy Williams, Andre Johnson (really thought he would be top receiver in league this he...he still may), Mauroney, ALL CLE BROWNS, Bulger (thouht he would be good again with line back to full strength). I know I will think of more after I post this LOL.

gotta add MJD-- not as elite a player as some on these lists, but a solid RB2 boarderline RB1 who has done crap this year. was i wrong to expect more than his lousy numbers thus far? youd think he get more carries than taylor for christ sakes, whats he 45?

Im trying to trade MJD for wayne, which means the trade will go through, taylor will get hurt and MJD's value skyrockets.
