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

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.
