5 Potential Fantasy Busts You Need to Know
The following is a list of five players who might be a little higher on people's draft boards than they should be. These guys have impressed in the past but may perform a little under par in 2011.
There are plenty of players out there who could be considered busts, these are just five guys who are at the top of that list in my opinion.
Let me know what you think. Who are your top five busts for the 2011 fantasy football season?
No. 5- Donovan McNabb, QB, Minnesota Vikings

This might be somewhat of a reach, which is why I put him at five. Think about it though. He's learning a new playbook, is surrounded by new personnel and doesn't have Sidney Rice to throw to.
No. 4- Mike Williams, WR, Seattle Seahawks

Williams has got a lot of things going against him. He lost the quarterback that helped him perform surprisingly well last season in Matt Hasselbeck, he'll have unproven Tarvaris Jackson or Charlie Whitehurst throwing to him and newly acquired Sidney Rice and Zach Miller will be taking a lot of his production away. That's a recipe for underproduction.
No. 3- Darren Sproles, RB, New Orleans Saints

Sproles was a monster for the Chargers last season. He took his opportunity when Ryan Mathews got injured and ran with it, no pun intended. That IS why he did so well, because another running back got injured. Now he's part of a very crowded backfield in New Orleans with Pierre Thomas and rookie Mark Ingram likely to get most of the work.
No. 2- Santana Moss, WR, Washington Redskins

Moss and former Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb built a great chemistry together last season. Moss was McNabb's go-to guy, especially when tight end Chris Cooley was injured. Neither John Beck nor Rex Grossman are close to being Donovan McNabb, so the 2011 season could be one of frustration for Moss and the Redskins.
No. 1- Brandon Lloyd, WR, Denver Broncos

This is mainly because of how well Lloyd performed last season. It's going to be extremely difficult for him to duplicate his Pro-Bowl worthy numbers. He won't be as much of a bust if Kyle Orton is the starter, but a bust nevertheless.
