Even as a RB2 (3rd round) he'd STILL probably be the biggest bust of the year.

And I do find it hard to believe that anyone felt he lost a step until their "hunch" was confirmed.
I mean, based on week 16 without a full compliment of touches, and week 17 that was just phoning it in?
I paid (auction) for something along the lines of last year's numbers. BUST.

Hold-out was a reasonable justification for dropping his ADP, but the rest of it...

It's the same as all of the feelings (INCLUDING MY OWN) that led to people NOT drafting Forte at his appropriate value.
They aren't particularly meritorious... they're voodoo.

Your voodoo was frickin' on-target this season. :)

How about Larry Fitzgerald? I haven't seen anyone mention his name yet. And I know he was awful with that revolving door of QB awfulness last year. I drafted him in the 3rd round this year after the likes of Megatron, Andre Johnson, Roddy White, etc.

And foolishly, I thought to myself .. there's just no way he can be as bad as he was last year. I thought Kolb was a half - decent QB. And I realize the whole team stinks .. especially the offensive line. However, I really have to nominate Larry Fitz. Although it may not be his fault, he is NOT producing WR 1 numbers at all.

Watching last night I thought of Phillip Rivers. He was 2nd best QB on a lot of lists and he's been crap.
Thank God for Football Season.

I agree. A lot of people had him right behind Rodgers as the second best QB for fantasy this year. My overall #1 bust has to go to CJ.4.24 though. The guy is playing like absolute sh**.
A win next week and all is forgotten.

I tend to disagree with Fitzgerald being considered a bust. Though he surely hasn't helped anyone win any games barring week 2, his mediocre stats still have him 11th in scoring in my league. Standard ESPN scoring save for partial points on yardage.
