Do you still have that fantasy football magazine lying around your house? You know the one that told you to reach on a player that currently has you sitting at 0-2 in your fantasy league. It’s still early, but without even having to deal with bye weeks the following players are causing people to lose sleep over their line-ups.
10] Brett Favre
In your fantasy draft this year, you reached for the old man like an old man reaches for his glasses. Favre has been terrible so far in 2010 and has burned owners with back to back weeks of low fantasy points. Can he break his slump? Is there any bounce still left in those old bones? Or is it time to start recording Matlock and promising him you’ll stay off his front lawn while Favre sits in a old rocking chair mumbling about the days of Green Bay and the high prices of oatmeal.
9] Joe Flacco
Load up the Ravens with superstar talent and still a passing attack can’t be put into form. Flacco has thrown just one touchdown pass to his 5 interceptions. The bright side is he is facing the Cleveland Browns this week, so watch for him to forget about the first two grueling weeks.
8] Shonn Greene
What happened here? Did Rex Ryan scare the potential right-out of this fantasy talent. Shonn Greene has had problems holding onto the ball and is currently sitting in the coaches doghouse. Mind you, that house is so big right now that it’s got its own gym and swim-up bar.
7] Brent Celek
Many thought this Boo-Bird was going to take flight in the new Eagles offense. Brent Celek has only 59 yards in two games, better start kissing up to Mike Vick soon, before you become a permanent fantasy benchmark.
6] Tony Gonzalez
Gonzo hasn’t been able to find the ball, even in the biggest of blowout wins. Tony Gonzalez has only 4 receptions for 53 yards and 0 touchdowns. Hopefully he’ll be looked at this week against the Saints, are you going to start him?
5] Pierre Garcon
The Manning computer can’t seem to find the folder where Pierre Garcon is located. “Not Responding” is a common computer error message that makes me want to put my fist threw the screen. Fantasy owners are feeling that same pain and frustration with Garcon’s drops and poor numbers.
4] C.J. Spiller
Unless you were loaded at running back, this pick has been a total waste. The Bills aren’t getting him the ball as promised and with the already QB change you’re better off leaving this guy on the bench for a while.
3] Maurice Jones-Drew
The Eagles game might be the chance to break open (just as J.Best did last week) yet the overall high level at which you selected this talented fantasy RB, doesn’t allow you to forgive him for too much longer. Jones-Drew said he was sorry last year to fantasy owners, it’s almost time for flowers and chocolates this time round.
2] Carson Palmer
If Palmer can’t put it together soon the trouble we thought we might see at the WR position will be focus on him. Palmer can’t seem to make the throws he use to , and is constantly getting his receivers killed with crazy into traffic passes.
1] Kevin Kolb
Who else would it be. Many fantasy experts spent the better part of the summer preaching this guy to be the next Aaron Rodgers. Those die-hard readers know not all the writers on this site were buying into the hype.,yet Kolb hasn’t screwed you over, Andy Reid did.
Mike Vick has played great but to lose your job after one start is a little insulting. Kolb and fantasy owners aren’t happy these days. With the excellent and exciting play of Mike Vick under center the job is locked for the year. Although with such a terrible offensive line Kolb’s fantasy value would be low any way you look at it. Vick gives the Eagles the best chance to win. Fantasy advice: Don’t drop or trade Kevin Kolb. If Andy Reid can change his mind faster than it takes him to eat a cheese-steak than there is always a chance Kolb plays again this year.
