Fantasy Basketball – Top 5 Surprise and Demise Players

Fantasy Basketball – Top 5 Surprise and Demise Players

Some players we daft early, just knowing they will lead our team to victory. But when these top picks lose their mojo, it can mean the demise of your championship hopes. That is unless you drafted a few late rounders who have a surprise breakout season, a surprise to the owners who didn’t draft him at least. Here are the players that disappointed and have pleasantly surprised us the past 30 days in fantasy basketball.

Top 5 Demise Players

1. Derrick Rose, Chi PG

Anyone who watched team USA win gold this summer expected that it would take Rose some time for to get his game back on track, and we’re still waiting. His horrible shooting from the summer has continued going 41% from the field, and he’s not looking to make the easy assist, only 4.9 assists per game with 3.1 turnovers per game, or go for the steal averaging 0.5 steals. The former MVP has a long way to go to get back on top, so for now rose’s really smell like boo-boo-boo.

Fantasy Football – Fantasy Woes Week 16

Fantasy Football – Fantasy Woes Week 16

For most leagues, the Super Bowl was this past week and a few of you are collecting the dough and holding the trophy or fantasy championship belt. There were a couple repeat offenders this week and one superstar that flopped like a soccer player in the penalty box.

Top 5 Fantasy Woes of Week 16

Andrew Luck

This Indianapolis Colt literally ran out of gas this past weekend after having an absolute stellar season up until your fantasy Super Bowl. The Dallas Cowboys thrashed Indy to the tune of 42-7 as Luck was pulled from the game in the third quarter. The former Stanford Cardinal was 15 of 22 passing with a measly 109 yards and two interceptions, which equates to zero fantasy points in standard leagues. You scored as many fantasy points as Andrew Luck on Sunday.

Tony Romo, Dal QB

Fantasy Football – Fantasy Woes Week 15

Fantasy Football – Fantasy Woes Week 15

There were plenty of ugly stat lines from guys who are heavily owned and relied upon at this point of the fantasy playoffs. As an owner in the postseason, you typically want to roll with the player who ‘got you here’, but that can backfire as well. See evidence below…

Top 5 Fantasy Woes of Week 15

1. Aaron Rodgers

For the second straight week, the Buffalo Bills limited one of the game’s best quarterbacks to less than 200 yards passing and zero touchdowns. Last week it was Peyton Manning and this week it was Rodgers, who was also intercepted by the Bills twice. The Packers’ receivers didn’t help the cause as they collectively dropped seven passes, which is the most by any team since 2008.
