My Quarterback Bust of the week: Kyle Orton, Buffalo Bills – Since Orton took over the starting job back in week 5, he has been a very steady QB, averaging around 20 fantasy points per week. This week he faces his toughest opponent so far, the Dolphins lead the NFL in giving least amount of fantasy points to a QB, with 11.3 per game. Orton will struggle in this game, bench him and look elsewhere.
Other recommended quarterbacks to Bust are: Alex Smith vs. Seattle Seahawks; Drew Stanton vs. Detroit Lions
My Running back Bust of the week: Marshawn Lynch, Seattle Seahawks – Lynch had a fantastic game last week, scoring 4 TDs. Do not expect that this week vs. a tough run defense. KC has yet to give up a rushing TD this season and they only allow 11 fantasy points to opposing running backs. I am not saying to bench Lynch, but just don’t expect a lot from him.
Other recommended running backs to Bust are: R. Jennings/A. Williams vs. San Francisco; Reggie Bush vs. Arizona Cardinals
My Wide Receiver Bust of the week: Larry Fitzgerald, Arizona Cardinals – Arizona has a very tough matchup this weekend, as they play hosts to the Lions. Detroit leads the league in defense, passing and rushing. Fitz will have a difficult time racking up fantasy points this week, the Lions only give up an average of 15 fantasy points to wide receivers. Also Arizona will be sending Drew Stanton into the Lions cage this week as Carson Palmer is lost for the season with a knee injury. Look elsewhere for help on your fantasy lineups.
Other recommended wide receivers to Bust are: Sammy Watkins vs. Miami Dolphins; TY Hilton vs. New England Patriots
My Tight End Bust of the week: Martellus Bennett, Chicago Bears – The offense for Chicago has been struggling as of late, I think that this week, vs. the Vikings, they come out of that funk, however they do it without much help from Bennett. Minnesota is among the best in the league at defending the tight end, only allowing 4.6 fantasy points to them. Find another option to fill your tight end spot this week and keep Bennett on your bench.
Other recommended tight ends to Bust are: Andrew Quarless vs. Philadelphia Eagles; Jermaine Gresham vs. New Orleans Saints
