Avoiding busts and recognizing studs is what every fantasy football GM is trying to do. I'm going to focus on the former, and more specifically at the wide receiver position. Here are five wideouts who are going to disappoint in the upcoming season.
Jeffery will certainly be fantasy relevant, but he isn't going to be the stud many expect. More than one-third of his points from last season were compiled in two games. A second-round pick is much too high for Jay Cutler's No. 2 receiver.
A lot of Garcon's 2013 success can be attributed to a lack of receiving options in Washington. With DeSean Jackson in town, his targets should go down significantly. Garcon has only been a startable fantasy option in one of his six seasons. Let's not overreact to one decent season in which he was the best of a bad wideout situation.
I'll believe Cobb is a fantasy stud when I see it. In three seasons, the best he has done scoring-wise is 18th among wide receivers, yet he is project to be the 10th selected in 2014. He's injury prone, and Aaron Rodgers clearly has better chemistry with Jordy Nelson.
Wayne has been Andrew Luck's go-to-guy since Luck was drafted, but those days are done. The Indianapolis Colts have a solid receiving crew outside of him now with T.Y. Hilton, Hakeem Nicks and rookie Donte Moncrief. The 36-year-old Wayne will have plenty of value to the team as a leader, but his production on the field should be minimal.
Another thing I'll believe when I see it is a Detroit Lions No. 2 receiver being fantasy relevant. Yes Detroit throws the ball a lot, but they spread it around a lot too after Calvin Johnson gets his targets. Reggie Bush, Joique Bell Brandon Pettigrew and Eric Ebron are going to get their looks. Tate may have moved from a run-heavy offense to a pass-heavy one, but it is a crowded pass-heavy offense.
