Fantasy football busts - Week 1: QB | RB | WR | TE | PK | DT

In this article KFFL breaks down the 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.

Rob Bironas, Tennessee Titans at Pittsburgh Steelers

Fantasy value: Midrange No. 1

  • Tennessee's already mediocre offense will be without deep threat Nate Washington (hamstring), who was supposed to help their passing game, for the beginning of the year. Bironas had just one field goal try against Pittsburgh last year.
  • It's tough to move the ball against the Curtain, who allowed the fifth fewest kicking points per contest (5.8) last year.

NEW - David Akers, Philadelphia Eagles at Carolina Panthers

Fantasy value: Midrange No. 1

  • The Eagles have an explosive offense, but the Panthers weren't kind to opposing boots last year. They tied for the eighth fewest field goal tries allowed per game (1.75) and were knotted for the ninth fewest extra-point attempts per game (2.06).
