A look back at the typical 2013 Fantasy Football draft and picks that haven’t panned out…
Arian Foster: I hate to say I told you so but, I TOLD YOU SO! Through three weeks Foster has failed to live up to No. 2 overall pick status, accumulating just 190 yards and a single touchdown. Fosters teammate, who went in the tenth round, has 184 yards and no touchdowns. While Foster may still be treated as the star back in Houston, the production shows that this is exactly what I said it would be, a timeshare. A timeshare Foster owners paid full price for.
C.J. Spiller: C.J. just might save Arian Foster the embarrassment of being the most disappointing player drafted in the first round. To date Spiller has gotten his owners a grand total of 14 points. Not per week, but total. To make matters worse, the seemingly one question mark with Spiller has already reared its ugly head as he left his Week 3 matchup against the Jets with an injury and was unable to return.
Steven Ridley: Oh the hits just keep coming! Even CJ Spiller owners are laughing at The Untalented Mr. Ridley. The words “Never trust a Bill Belichick running back”. I would chuckle each draft as someone would draft him in the first round. The top 10 talent has gotten his owners nine points so far this year, but at least he’s healthy Spiller fans…
Steven Jackson: Jackson was supposed to have a big year. It was the first time that he would be on a winning team. It was supposed to be the year that Jackson redeemed himself for years of fantasy mediocrity in St. Louis. Ironically it was on his first game against his old mates that he scored a touchdown and has yet to be heard from since. SJax has managed just 17 points for his owners after three weeks and is scheduled to miss the next 1-3 weeks with a thigh injury.
Maurice Jones-Drew: If anyone could overcome playing on the worst team in the league it would be MOJO. However Jacksonville is far worse than many people first believed. It’s hard to sustain any semblance of a running game when you fall behind so early in games. MJD finally got into the end zone against Seattle this Sunday albeit after an interception that was returned to the two yard line; pretty hard for even Jacksonville to screw that one up.
David Wilson: Even I drank the David Wilson Kool-Aid. After the injury to backfield teammate Andre Brown in the preseason, Wilson was the target of a hype machine that touted him as the next big thing in fantasy. With his electric speed and sole ownership of the starting job getting Wilson in the third was supposed to be a steal. Well that steal has put up a grand total of one point in the first three weeks of the season. In the immortal words of Sir Charles Barkley, “Turrible, just terrible.”
Roddy White: As half of arguably the leagues most dangerous offence, Roddy was supposed to be a can’t miss superstar this year. Insert a high ankle sprain and Roddy hasn’t gotten off to a flying start with his Falcons. To his credit, Roddy has gutted it out and has suited up each week for the Falcons, but seven catches for 56 yards and no touchdowns is much less than Roddy owners had in mind. Once the ankle heals up Roddy will once again return to a can’t miss prospect, but until then he is a can’t start disappointment.
Vincent Jackson: Jackson and the Bucs actually looked decent in Week 1, against the Jets. He pulled in seven catches for 154 yards for 15 points. Not too shabby, even if it was against the Jets, but he didn’t get into the end zone in Week 1 and he hasn’t since, catching just eight balls for 111 in the two weeks since. Jackson has been a high risk/high reward for most of his career. Therefore after his next big game I suggest you sell high while you still can. 15 points is one thing, but suffering through weeks of three-seven point performances will make you pull your hair out.

Looking forward at week 4 there are several names of note who are going to give their fantasy owners some stress leading into the weekend. Most of these guys should end up taking the field on Sunday, but there will always be that last-minute heart-breaker that cant play. Make sure you're prepared for the worst-case-scenario and have a good plan B ready if needed. Player...
3 down, 13 more to go! Right? Anyways, Patriot Nation is gearing up for a big Sunday night game against the Falcons and while I'm pumped and excited, my week has been hampered with two tests along with work Sunday before the game. Nevertheless though, I'll be in front of my TV cheering on the Pats on NBC.
Let's start this game preview with three things you NEED to know...
