After how dominant Shields looked against the Red Sox in his last start, some may view including him on this list a mistake, but I still believe he was over-drafted this year.
Shields has incredible stuff and put together a great season in 2011, posting a 2.84 ERA, a 1.04 WHIP and 225 strikeouts, so fantasy owners jumped at the opportunity to add him to their roster (63.6 ADP on ESPN).
Owners also have short memories, as Shields struggled during his first five major league seasons, highlighted by his 2010 performance, when he posted a 5.18 ERA and 1.46 WHIP in 33 starts.
Yet, people paid for Shields with the belief that 2010 James Shields doesn't exist anymore.
Look, Shields has the potential to be a great pitcher again this season, but his 2011 season created too much hype, so owners may (even though they should not) be surprised when everything doesn't go Shields' way in 2012.
