THE ALL BEAST DOME BUST TEAM
BEAST DOME NATION.
After a strong showing in FantasyPros for Week 3, my Busts of the Week are back for more action. Last week a few of my Busts ended up sitting out the game before it even started (Brees/Alshon). To avoid that problem we will avoid Questionable players heading into the article.
BEAST HEDGE WEEK 4

PHILIP RIVERS – SD (#21 QB)
ECR #11 QB
One thing you will learn quickly about Philip Rivers if you have not already, Rivers has a weak arm. The Chargers offense is not really that much of a threat these days with no Antonio Gates and the running game yet to reach it’s potential. While the matchup against the Browns looks good on paper thanks to Derek Carr tearing up the secondary last week. I am going to chalk that up to Carr and his arm strength making great deep passes all game. We can chalk it up to Cooper just being so dominant that Haden could not even stop him. All you need to know for this game is that Rivers and his floating duck arm will not get it done against easily one of the best secondaries in the NFL, on paper.
ADRIAN PETERSON – MIN (#12 RB)
ECR #4 RB
AP going up against the Broncos spells disaster before it even begins. Denver’s Run D is too good for this league and the Vikings are going to fall behind before the game even begins. Once the game goes into blowout mode, if AP did not get his numbers in the 1st half he will not get them all game. There is a good chance he sits the 4th Quarter during the blowout.
DEVONTA FREEMAN – ATL (#22 RB)
ECR #11 RB
While Devonta was nice for all VIPs who purchased my Weekly Package, this is a week to avoid the hype and sit out Devonta. Texans Defense does one thing and only one thing right, they stop the run. With Wilfork and Watt creating pressure up the middle, Devonta will have to get his numbers PPR style. With that being the situation, Devonta will have trouble cracking Top 10 RB status this week.
KEENAN ALLEN – SD (#30 WR)
ECR #14 WR
Two words for you. Joe. Haden. Haden is too talented for Keenan Allen whose fantasy game was saved last week on a TD right before the half. With Rivers likely to take less shots and rely on a running game once the Chargers have the lead, Keenan Allen will likely find himself on the wrong end of the fantasy spectrum this week. With Antonio Gates coming back for the next Chargers game, now would be a good time to sell high after a BUST performance in Week 4.
LARRY FITZGERALD – ARI (#26 WR)
ECR #10 WR
Life has been good for the Arizona Cardinals offense. Matchup against the Saints/Bears/49ers is having everyone think the Cardinals are the best offense in the NFL and Carson Palmer is a Top 10 QB, no questions asked. While Palmer and Fitzgerald is looking as good as ever, some reality will set in with the Rams Defense coming into town. Rams D does play quicker than most teams and 5x the speed of the previous opponents the Cardinals have been facing. Sure Fitzgerald can always get his TD being too big to cover in the Redzone, but if he only ends up with 70+ yards this week, that will not be enough to get it done.
Now would be a good time to sell Larry Fitzgerald high as you can get a Superstar Talent, even Calvin Johnson if you throw in a little extra. Michael Floyd is now close to 100% healthy and Carson Palmer and his fragile twice repaired surgical knee is one hit away from all this success going down the drain.
ZACH ERTZ – PHI (#21 TE)
ECR #14 TE
Remember when everyone was hyping up Zach Ertz last preseason, I said he was a BUST. Then they were hyping up Ertz again this season, and once again I reminded them that his nickname is not, “Ertz-Rent-A-Bust” for nothing.
At this point the consensus #6 TE in Fantasy Football is nothing more than Waiver Wire garbage. The Eagles O-Line has so many problems they have no choice but to play Brent Celek who is far superior of a blocker, who can also catch passes. Ertz has his few moments here and there, but to have a part time TE on an offense that is looking like a High School Football Team, chances are he will end up on the Waiver Wire before on someone’s starting lineup.
