In this article KFFL breaks down fantasy football busts of the week. Some high-level players will be included, because you need to know when is time to sit a player even though it may not seem appropriate. Primarily, however, we will address the midrange to low-end fantasy options that you rack your brain over each week. Read on to learn which of these players that you wouldn't want in your lineup.
Note: All statistics are from Week 3 to Week 6, unless otherwise noted.
Fantasy football busts: Quarterbacks
Donovan McNabb, Philadelphia Eagles at Washington Redskins
Fantasy value: No. 1 or bench
McNabb is a McBust this week
- McNabb is coming off a miserable game against the Oakland Raiders in which he completed 47.8 percent of his throws, didn't score a touchdown and was sacked six times.
- Against Washington in their past four meetings, McNabb exploded with a four-touchdown game (Week 10, 2007) but failed to account for a touchdown pass in the other three contests.
- For all of the Redskins' woes this season on offense, their defense has been respectable, especially against the pass. In the last month of play, Washington has allowed a mere 178.5 passing yards and 0.75 total touchdowns per game to the quarterback position.
