Five Fantasy Football Players who could bust badly in 2015

Could Peyton Manning be a bust in 2015?

Could Peyton Manning be a bust in 2015?

We all love Fantasy Football, but let’s be honest every year someone drafts a player that ends up busting so bad it sets their team back.  Last year, I drafted Adrian Peterson and boy was it a heartache when he was suspended. Thankfully I was able to select DeMarco Murray in round 3, and everything panned out just fine.  Well here are three players that we feel will be drafted rather high who will have a bad season in 2015. 

Peyton Manning – He is considered by many as the best player in the NFL, but he is getting old.  I feel he honestly only returned to break the record of Brett Favre. He is 2,147 yards away from passing Favre as the all time leader in passing yardage. I think he will break his record, but he will not have a great year. His offensive line is bad, and they will struggle to protect him. 

Odell Beckham Jr. – I believe in the Madden Curse, and while others may not have that feeling, I am not sure he can have another huge year. He had injury issues all through last season and still has injury issues, which recently held him out of practice. I would love to see him continue to grow into a prime wide out, but I feel he has a slow year in 2015. 

Matt Forte – I am not sure Forte can continue to make big play after big play for the Bears. Teams will likely stack the box now the team lost their star wide out in Brandon Marshall. I do not trust Jay Cutler to beat a defense, and I feel he will have another shaky year.  I think the production of Forte goes down big time in 2015. 

Jeremy Maclin – I feel Jeremy Maclin’s number’s will decrease bad.  He put up huge numbers last year in Philadelphia, but that was with Nick Foles.  Now that Maclin has Alex Smith, I am not sure he can produce the numbers he did in 2014.  I would not be surprised to see him not even hit 1000 yards. 

Justin Forsett – The Ravens were able to get a huge spark out of the former Seahawk running back, but I do not feel he will have as big of a season he did in 2014. Forsett should be a guy that is drafted as a secondary back not as your primary back.
