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 6 to Week 9, unless otherwise noted.
Fantasy football busts: Place kickers
Mason Crosby, Green Bay Packers vs. Dallas Cowboys
Fantasy value: Midrange No. 1
- After a 4-for-4 field goal run against the Detroit Lions in Week 6, Crosby has gone 3-for-5 on three-point tries. To be fair, both of those misses came from 50-plus yards out, but either way he has totaled just 20 points over his last three games and wasn't set up for a field goal last week. He's only 1-of-4 from at least 50 yards out this season.
- The Cowboys have allowed just 1.33 field goal tries and 2.00 extra point attempts per game to opposing boots.
- Dallas' pass rush should rattle Green Bay's shaky pass protection, and the Pack will probably have a difficult time moving the ball this week. It's hard to think Crosby will go a week without attempting a field goal again, but there is enough reason to think Crosby may not produce much this week.
