HYDE & GO BUST
BEAST DOME BUST PICKS OF THE YEAR
BEAST DOME NATION
There are so many BEAST picks to show tomorrow that it is only fair I show my BUST picks of the year.
What Qualifies a BUST? A Bust is a player that I was higher on than any Expert. If the player was a 1st/2nd Round Pick in all leagues, that is not considered a BUST. Someone like Montee Ball was drafted in every 1st/2nd Round does not count. While I am the founder of Montee Ball and I do agree he never lived up to his potential. You would have had to pass up Arian Foster and Marshawn Lynch to take Montee Ball in Round 1, when both players were still on the board. The players I will consider Busts are players I had you target in your draft, when nobody else did.

2014 MUNTRADAMUS BUST PICKS
RGIII – WAS
What is there to say about RGIII that has not been said already. First he started everyone off with a beautiful 0-2 record failing to do anything against the Texans and then injuring himself over an invisible defender in Week 2. Once he was finally healthy he was ineffective going up against average defenses in Minnesota and San Francisco. Then when RGIII had one last chance to make up for his horrible season, Coach Gruden only calls 23 pass plays.
TRENT RICHARDSON – IND
T-Quizz. What started out as a preseason sleeper that would get you 10+ TDs, ended up being a RB who failed to distinguish himself in the Colts offense. Between Ahmad Bradshaw completely outscoring Trent when healthy, then Boom Herron doing enough to create a committee. It is safe to say Trent Richardson was a HUGE bust. It is amazing that a player can be so dominant as a Rookie, then two years later become a worthless RB on one of the best offenses in the NFL. It happens, luckily Trent was drafted as depth and not to be your starter.
CARLOS HYDE – SF
HYDE & GO BEAST. The Montee Ball pick of 2014 came to life as he never got his shot to be the featured RB. No matter how bad Frank Gore did during the season, the 49ers still left Frank the Tank as the lead RB in 2014. While Frank Gore did have a nice Week 16 for his Fantasy Owners, Frank failed to score double digit points nearly every week, while Carlos Hyde was sitting on every BEAST DOME owners bench, every week.
Maybe next season if the 49ers decide to let Frank Gore go, HYDE & GO BEAST will become a reality. Hyde still ended up with more rushing TDs than Gore.
SHONN GREENE – TEN
He was a player you can snag at the end of your draft, and I encouraged everyone to take the shot. Shonn Greene was nothing more than a below average goal line TD machine on an offense that never reached the redzone. Shonn Greene had a few nice moments like a TD in Week 3 and a good game in Week 1. For the most part he was grooming the spot for Bishop Sankey who really did not do anything as well. While drafting Shonn Greene at the end of your draft did not help, drafting Bishop Sankey like a Top 20 RB like every Fantasy Site ranked him proved to be the real bad call.
JARRETT BOYKIN – GB
The Nightmare on Boykin street was evident from Day 1. After not getting a single target in the game against the Seahawks on Sherman Island, which was followed by multiple dropped passes in Week 2. Jarrett Boykin quickly found himself in the doghouse and then the bench behind Davante Adams who failed to make a big impact this season. Once Boykin was in the doghouse he injured his thumb which kept him out a few weeks. Then when he was finally healthy he had a passing in his family which caused him to miss a game. When all of this adds up, Jarrett Boykin had a nightmare season for a player that was supposed to have so much potential in the Aaron Rodgers offense. Luckily Jarrett Boykin was a 7th round or later pick, but still a pick we wish we could all have back.
KENNY BRITT – STL
Kenny Britt was supposed to be the star WR for Shaun Hill and this somewhat potential Rams offense. In Week 1 Shaun Hill went down, which meant the end for Kenny Britt who thrived with Shaun Hill in the preseason. When Austin Davis was at QB, all he would is throw to Brian Quick every play. Eventually Austin Davis and Brian Quick got injured, which opened the door again for Kenny Britt and Shaun Hill. Britt had some HUGE fantasy moments in the middle of the season, but then like all Rams not named Tre Mason, he became forgotten. Britt was no doubt a BUST, he was also a late round pick who had some good moments if you stuck around for them.
HAKEEM NICKS – IND
Hakeem the Dream was featured heavily in the preseason. Once the NFL season started, Andrew Luck decided that Hakeem Nicks was not going to be a fantasy factor at all. Hakeem Nicks failed to offer any consistency, yet alone targets. It did not take Hakeem Nicks long to end up on every Waiver Wire, luckily he did not come at a high price and often fell to the last few rounds of your draft.
RICHARD RODGERS – TE
Sometimes you have to take a shot in the dark that makes sense. Drafting Richard Rodgers in the last round of your Fantasy Football draft was a no brainer as he had the potential to be a Fantasy Machine for the Packers. All of those dreams died quickly when the “Unicorn” broke his horn aka hurt his neck which led to the downfall of his season in Week 1. Soon after the injury Brandon Bostick was healthy, and Andrew Quarless was doing enough where Richard Rodgers never got the chance to be the featured TE for the Packers. While his back-to-back TDs in Week 11/12 were nice, he was already off the radar.
