"Bust of the year" (1 Viewer)

Michael Boulware is teetering on the edge.

This week he had 3 tackles and 1 sack after the FIRST Quarter.

When it was over he had 3 tackels - 1 assist - 1 sack. :cry:

 
:lmao: at bust of the year already. In regards to Evans you get what you paid for with Losman. Hartwell wasn't going to be a three down LB anyway so his production was going to be limited as a result.

:yes: AJ went in the late 2nd / early 3rd in many leagues. I got Evans in the 7th, which IIRC was about his ADP.

 
INTs and TDs are difficult to predict. Ed Reed is getting about the same number of T+A as last year. So you are surprised that Reed is getting fewer INTs or you expected more T+A?
 
Rodney Harrison :no: Unless he's exempt because of injury. Still, it's a disappointment to his owners :(

im surprised the 46 D hasnt produced any big plays for him, yes. i believe he was the first safety chosen in most deep IDP leagues, and unless he gets some big plays, his value will be very pedestrian. of course you can say the same thing about peppers.

Then according to you guys like Sean Taylor and Michael Boulware are busts. I think you need to define what a bust is first and then go from there because I wouldn't consider them busts due to the tackles.

I agree with the 46 D the expected nbr of big plays was up. But there was still more uncertainty than R Harrison however with the tackles' predictability. I agree with Peppers. I am personally more surprised at Peppers' stats so far than Ed Reed. Not that I expected zero big plays from Reed at this point.

As I mentioned in the other thread, Boulware is producing very average tackle numbers so far. Far from top 10 numbers.
 
While he hasn't quite attained "bust" status, when you consider where he was taken in most drafts, Keith Bulluck being ranked 34th in both solos and FPs (my league anyways) has got to be considered a major disappointment. Hopefully he'll come around.

I agree. Bulluck has disappointed me so far. But remember that he started even slower last year but started to light it up in week #6. I am not worried yet.
 
You get what you pay for when you take a DT instead of a DE. A disappointment, for sure, but he's a DT, so there was always that chance that he might not put up huge numbers. Considering the Queens D hasn't been stopping anyone at the LOS, it's about par for the course. :shrug:
 
I am going to look at my main league and get some "busts" from there, though I don't see many guys that are trully busts at this point after 3-4 games. If you expect numbers that just can't be attained then you set your sights to high and will be disappointed no matter what. The difference between having a couple of ints, sacks or a touchdown can be a huge difference in where a player is ranked but those are also impact plays that are damn near impossible to predict week in and week out.

Good call on the slow start. Bulluck started off last year with 20 solos through four games, like this year. He finished the year averaging 7.5 solos over the final 11 games.
 
Agreed. was one of my 10 keepers. Which is tough to keep a DL when LB's hold the most value; 1 pt per tak 2 pt per sck, 3 pt per ff, 4 pt per int. We are proposing tackles to go to 2pts for DL in 06..not done deal yet.
 
Lee Evans.  I don't care what forum it's in, he's the bust of the year.
Stop blaming the victim. JP Losman aka Just Plain Lousy is the bust of the year.
Yeah, I'm not blaming Evans, but that doesn't make him any less of a bust.

Great stuff guys.Sure hopes he holds true to last year's form.

 
For me Peppers has been a total disappointment.But if they are going to keep throwing to him in the red zone, hell, I have to keep him.Not one sack yet :thumbdown:

 
Based on how high FBG had him ranked, I have to consider Thomas Davis a bust. That said, I think it would have been unwise to use a high pick on him regardless of what FBG said. I've had him on my radar all season, ready to jump at him at the first sign of a breakout, but it's not looking like that will happen anytime soon.

I had Bulluck last year and if i recall he had a couple of bad runs due to injuries on the front defensive line. he was getting taken out of the play quite regularly...then...as you indicate the line got healthy and KB was back on top.
 
Based on how high FBG had him ranked, I have to consider Thomas Jones a bust. That said, I think it would have been unwise to use a high pick on him regardless of what FBG said. I've had him on my radar all season, ready to jump at him at the first sign of a breakout, but it's not looking like that will happen anytime soon.
:confused: You mean top 5 RB Thomas Jones who was expected to be Benson's backup? How do you define bust?

Sorry, I meant Carolina safety Thomas Davis. I'm ######ed. Will edit immediately.

I took Sean Jones in the second round of my dynasty draft because FBG had him ranked right behind Davis earlier in the offseason :wall:

How much did you expect from a first year starting QB on a middle of the road team? The Bills' defense was the main reason they did as well as they did last year. Most people agreed that Losman would struggle.

If most people assumed Losman would struggle, wouldn't it follow that they wouldn't take Lee Evans very high?For IDP, it's either Thomas Davis, Julius Peppers, Nappy Harris, Greenwood or Hartwell.

Ummm, yep that's why it's hard to consider Evans a bust. Why would anyone with half a brain think that he'd do well? What's your point?

I second the Sean Jones vote. I still have the bum on my roster and just can't seem to pull the trigger on unloading him. Another disappointment has been DJWilliams. I wouldn't call him a bust, because pretty much ever IDP guru warned me about selecting him after he was moved to the strong side. I just figured that he would still put up decent number worthy of a starting spot in my lineup. So early in the season, I dropped Demerrio Williams, another supposed strong side, weak play candidate, and kept DJ. Demerrio seems to be excelling at the strong side, while DJ is lucky to even put up points. Oui-Veh. Once again, I can't bring myself to dropping DJ. He seems like too much of a stud. Just hope that he gets moved again.

Thanks for the compliment :thumbup: You're right - no QB has ever been good their first year, and no WR has ever had a decent season in that situation.

 
What about LaVar Arrington, he was the 12 LB taken in our league. He resides in 146th out of the LB's in scoring in our league as of today. Sean Taylor has disappointed me in my leagues, I benched him in favor of Deke Cooper in both this past week.

 
Kevin WilliamsCourtney WatsonMichael BoulwareI'll add Sean Jones & Thomas Davis if you look at how the rankings were pimping them. Reminds me of Charles Tillman in the 2004 rankings.How about Ray Lewis? Is it me or is he not the kind of player that I remember spoiling us with fantasy points week after week in years' past???

 
I don't consider Arrington a bust. Whoever took him as the 12th LB made a mistake. Most people avoided him and for good reason.

 
Ray Lewis has disappointed me as well. I thought the new 46 defense would result in a significant increase in T+A for him. He is underperforming like Ed Reed and several other Ravens on defense. I am very surprised at the shocking lack of turnovers, sacks, etc. from that defense.
