Although the real NFL season is just entering its playoff race, for fantasy football players, the playoffs are right around the corner.
With most leagues closing in on the playoffs, some fantasy owners may be on the outside looking in, cursing themselves for drafting players who became busts while slogging through forgettable 2015 seasons. While it’s tough to let go of players you drafted with high hopes, some of these guys have either never turned the corner or turned the corner too late.
Here’s our list of the top 25 fantasy football busts this season (in no particular order).
Eddie Lacy — RB, Green Bay Packers
Preseason Rank: No. 3
Key Stats: 513 rushing yards, three touchdowns, four fumbles
One thing to know: After a painfully slow start, Lacy appears healthy and has picked up his play. But as a top-five pick for many people, Lacy’s resurgence has likely come too late. He hit a low point in Week 10 when he was demoted to second on the Packers’ depth chart.
C.J. Anderson — RB, Denver Broncos
Preseason Rank: No. 9
Key Stats: 496 rushing yards, three touchdowns
One thing to know: Much like Lacy, Anderson has been heating up in recent weeks, but far too late for many fantasy owners. He only has three games with over 50 rushing yards this season, two of which have come in the last two weeks.
Andrew Luck — QB, Indianapolis Colts
Preseason Rank: No. 20
Key Stats: 1,881 passing yards, 15 touchdowns, 12 interceptions
One thing to know: Injuries have obviously played a huge part in Luck’s struggles, but after being projected as this year’s top quarterback, Luck was a letdown even when healthy. He only has two games without an interception this year.
