Fantasy Football Week 6 Rankings: Top 25 Busts of 2010

All fantasy owners know the feeling. 

You draft some big time players in the higher rounds in hopes they will be a consistent source of points.  They aren't necessarily risks on paper—most of the time they are actually smart picks—and in order for your fantasy team to have success, you need them to perform well on an every week basis.

But, they don't. 

They don't fill out the stat sheet like they normally do.  They might get a nagging injury that causes their production to go down.  They get in legal trouble or put in their coach's dog house because of something they did. All of these types of things kill their high level of production that you—the fantasy owner—are so desperate for them to put out.

These players are called fantasy football busts, and they can ruin a completely relaxed Sunday quicker than your ex-girlfriend—who you hate—telling you shes pregnant and its yours. They fester in your fantasy lineups like a cancer eating away at your football mind.  You begin second guessing your judgments and ponder whether to start, sit or flat out drop the bums.

In my eyes, a fantasy flop can have decent numbers, but if he is not living up to his potential or playing as well as a guy drafted in his position should play, he is a bust. A bust can get hurt, but he still has to play a few games and underachieve to be considered one.

It is still early in the season, so for these 25 men, there is still hope that they can revive their seasons.  Well at least some of them.  Here are my top 25 fantasy football players that have given us the most headeaches so far.
