In today's sports world, it seems that NFL athletes are under constant scrutiny—I blame the rise of fantasy football.
As each year passes, the smallest things can be counted as disappointments, especially to fantasy owners. The expectation for NFL players continues to grow, but every single year, there are going to be guys who don't measure up.
Take a look at guys like Steve Slaton and LenDale White—they were one-time fantasy studs who just stopped performing (also, see Shaun Alexander).
After two weeks of the 2012 season, we are already seeing guys who we probably shouldn't have expected so much from. Will they get better?
