Three Players That Should Be Considered 2012 Fantasy Football Busts in Week 1
Here’s a look at three 2012 Fantasy Football Busts to avoid in Week 1.
3. Indianapolis Colts Quarterback Andrew Luck
The Colts could not have asked for a better replacement to Peyton Manning, but Luck may have some difficulty in his first career start during the regular season against the Chicago Bears. Not only have the Bears established a reputation over the years for their defense, but the condition of their field makes Soldier Field one of the most difficult places to play for opponents.
Luck may put up decent numbers in Week 1, but there’s plenty of better options to consider for fantasy football at quarterback.
2. Miami Dolphins Running Back Reggie Bush
Last season, Bush crossed the 1,000-yard mark for the first time in his career and seemed to be the perfect fit for the Dolphins’ offense. Unfortunately, Miami’s offense could be in for a rude awakening in 2012 with rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill and their Week 1 matchup against the Houston Texans–who contained one of the top defenses in 2011–could mean a long day for Bush in the ground game.
If the Dolphins trail early on, don’t expect Bush to receive the ball as much as he normally would.
1. Minnesota Vikings Running Back Adrian Peterson
Yes, it seems ridiculous to have Peterson on this list considering fantasy football owners are already hesitant towards taking the running back because of his ACL tear from Week 16 last season. However, there are some owners that have been willing to take Peterson with the hope that he returns to his old dominant form.
If that does happen, it will take a few weeks. Leslie Frazier has already made it clear that Peterson will be limited in Week 1–so don’t expect anything big against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
