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 statistical averages are from Week 2 to Week 5, unless otherwise specified.
Robbie Gould, Chicago Bears v. Seattle Seahawks
Fantasy value: Low-end No. 1
- Typically one of the more consistent fantasy boots, Gould has knocked through 10 of his 11 field goal tries on the year and has multiple field goal tries in four of his five games this season.
- The Seahawks, however, have allowed just 0.67 field goal tries and 1.67 extra point attempts per game in their last three outings. Seattle has rolled over against notable passing attacks in Week 2 (Denver Broncos) and Week 3 (San Diego Chargers) - the Bears' Mike Martz attack qualifies as one of those. You can probably expect more extra points than field goals for Chicago in this matchup.
