We've all been there before, stuck somewhere in the serpentine draft order. The clock is ticking and you have a decision to make: stud RB or stud WR? As the seconds tick down, you weigh the merits of points-per-perception leagues versus points-per-yardage and eventually, hating yourself with every synapse fired in the process, commit your index finger to mouse pad and select a guy who will inevitably play 300 draft spots worse than his selection spot.
Welcome to fantasy football.
Just because a player disappointed in one fantasy football season, however, doesn't mean he is utterly worthless in future seasons. A multitude of factors can affect performance, ranging from injury to coaching scheme to general malaise with a poorly-run organization. Not all of these albatrosses remain constant from season to season.
So while it may provide no true consolation to you now, considering you already spent the 20th pick in your office's 2010 fantasy football pool on Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, you can at least be open to the idea that these 10 players who laid an egg in 2010 are still worth fantasy draft consideration in 2011.
