These may not be all busts, but in my most competitive league, I have lost Buckhalter, Duece, and Julius Jones to injury, leaving me with Kevin Jones, Stecker, and Scobey (return yards) as my only active RBs, all of which must start. McNair has also been pretty bad so far, as has Gonzo. This is my starting offense for next week:

QB McNair
WR Harrison, Coles
RB K Jones, Stecker
TE Gonzo
WR/TE Lloyd
WR/RB Clayton, Scobey

:~( :~( :~( :~( , and I am already 0-2, as one might expect.

Boo Williams has been my biggest bust so far. But I'd like to nominate all the tight ends so far. What an annoying fantasy postion.

^^We thought about getting rid of tight ends and adding another flex. I kind of wish we had - I have 5 solid running backs and crap for tight ends.

In one of my leagues I drafted:

1. McAllister
2. Taylor
4. Steve Smith


After Tennessee this week though, Taylor's schedule gets ALOT easier

Rb's - A.Green/D.Davis/B.Westbrook
Wr's - R.Wayne/J.McCareins/K.Robinson
Te/wr flex - P.Buress/D.Terrell

Out of all of these busts on this thread, I have to say a lot of them arent considered busts in the classic sence to me. Porter isnt a bust in that he wasnt ranked very high at all - same with TGreen. When you draft this type of player in the mid rounds thinking they will outperform their ranking or that they are good value, they really cant be considered much of a bust. Players drafted in the first 3-4 rd of a draft are the only bust candidates IMO. Sorry - just one of my pet peeves.


I think most people had Trent Green somewhere around the top 10 QB level (He was the #4 QB last year according to standard yahoo scoring). So he should be a QB that is at least good enough to forget about -- not carry your team, but not sink it either. I think it is fair to call him a bust for these two weeks because the general expectation for him as a QB was far above the level he has been these first two weeks.

I think a starting QB (starting on a fantasy team) that consistently has low scoring games can be more detrimental to a team than a similar RB. I think this because it is safe to assume that most QBs will get pretty good points (only the stud RBs consistently perform on the level of the QBs) so you are likely losing significant ground to the team that you are playing (the same effect that causes us to stock up on RBs before grabbing QBs). So a QB like Green (if he were to continue playing this way all season) would be a pretty major bust for a team in a competitive league (unless you have a good BU or WW option).

It has definately been my #4-5 WR, Price and Porter. They have done nothing so far.

Charles Rogers was my #1 WR pick, and I picked up Duckett as my last RB. (both are now off my roster, of course now Dunn is hurt so I'm screwed.)
