DFS Busts - Week 3By Muntradamus
THE ALL MUNTRADAMUS BUST TEAM (WEEK 3)
DREW BREES - NO (#13 QB)
Does he have a bad shoulder? Is he 100%? Questions you never want to ask about your Starting QB who has yet to look like a fraction of the player you drafted. With no WR core outside of Brandin Cooks and Marques Colston, Brees and his fantasy owners are ready to hit the panic button. Instead of being brave and hoping Brees can tough it out Week 3 and go back to his vintage form on the Road against Division rival Carolina Panthers, who will do their best to remind Drew Brees he has a bad shoulder. Do yourself a favor and find a QB on the Waiver Wire or stream another option in Daily Fantasy.
JEREMY HILL - CIN (#23 RB)
What goes up at an angle, and goes down on an angle? The answer is a Hill. Jeremy is currently on the downward slop as the situation from 2014 is completely different than it is right now. Last season Jeremy Hill really sat on the bench for the most part and watched Giovani Bernard take a lot of hits early on in the season. Eventually those hits led up, and Giovani Bernard was too beat up to play the second half. Right now the Bengals see a very fresh Giovani Bernard who will get plenty of snaps against the very tough Run Defense of the Baltimore Ravens.
While Jeremy Hill is not down and out, his Fantasy status while Giovani is playing this well definitely makes him questionable moving forward. BEAST DOME not only ranked Hill lowest in Week 2, but also for the entire season as this Bengals team is playing a different brand of Football than 2014.
DEMARCO MURRAY - PHI (#22 RB)
What goes up, must come down. DeMarco Murray is still down and he will continue to be down for another week as he goes up against the, "Swarming Kamikaze" New York Jets Defense. The Jets are playing very fierce and if you think the Cowboys were able to penetrate that Eagles O-Line last week, just wait till you see what Wilkerson and that blitzing LB core is able to do. Sam Bradford will be eating dirt all game, and DeMarco Murray will need to borrow that new Powerful Tide from Darren Sproles to take out those grass stains all over that jersey.
There is light on the other side of the tunnel for Murray, a Hamstring injury on top of everything above means that light is still not in sight.
MIKE EVANS - TB (#26 WR)
By the time Jameis Winston catches the snap, J.J. Watt and Company will be in Winston's face. Jameis will not have time to get Evans the ball deep down field against the Texans pass rush, but most importantly. Evans is not completely the same WR. While he may say he is 100%, that hamstring injury is definitely lingering in his mind as you cannot read an article about him these days without mention of the hammy. The Texans will make sure Winston does not have time to throw those deep bombs.
ALSHON JEFFERY - CHI (#31 WR)
While you could make a case there will be plenty of garbage time against a very overrated Seahawks Pass Defense. You could equally make a case that the Bears are contempt on resting their star WR to get 100% healthy during the second half blowout. While Jay Cutler somehow playing after being reported at least two weeks by ESPN would give Alshon a small boost. He will still not be anywhere near that 3rd Round Pick you drafted him to be.
MARTELLUS BENNETT - CHI (#20 TE)
Martellus is usually locked and loaded as a Top 5 TE every week of the NFL season. This is a Week where it is best to go to your bench and find a different option. The Seahawks have Kam Chancellor back, which means the Bears middle of the field got that much smaller. You can guarantee Kam will be gunning for Martellus when he goes out for passes. The only thing that can save Martellus is garbage time, which is definitely a possibility, but something I would not count on.
