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.
Fantasy football busts: Place kickers
Stephen Gostkowski, New England Patriots at Denver Broncos
Fantasy value: High-end No. 1
- Despite questions surrounding the effectiveness of the Pats offense, Gostkowski has received his fair fantasy workload, running off at least nine points in each of the last three weeks while averaging 10.67 kicking points per game.
- While the Mile High air may help New England's boot, the Broncos haven't yielded much to kickers, ranking in the top three defenses per game against them in field goal attempts (1.00, tied for second) and extra point tries (0.50, first). Plus, Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels probably has an idea of how his former team works.
