An aspect of Fantasy football that can be every bit as important as finding the next breakout player is identifying overvalued players and avoiding early-round busts. Just ask any Fantasy player who had Le'Veon Bell or David Johnson on their team in 2018.
And before you enter a 2019 Fantasy football league, you'll want to see Jody Smith's analysis and breakdown of some of the top busts.
Smith has been working in the industry for many years and has contributed to virtually every meaningful Fantasy publication and website. He was named Most Accurate Expert by FantasyPros.com for the 2012 NFL season.
One thing we can tell you: Smith is staying far away from Antonio Brown, even if the star wideout's feet are completely healthy by Week 1.
"Brown is undoubtedly one of the greatest wide receivers of this generation but he has almost no chance of repeating the lofty numbers he put up in Pittsburgh," Smith said. "Over the past six seasons, Brown averaged a hefty 171 targets annually. Meanwhile, the Oakland Raiders haven't had any player top 150 targets in 21 years. Not only is Brown looking at a rather severe reduction in volume, but the dropoff from Ben Roethlisberger to Derek Carr at quarterback is steep."
Smith also has found four more players that you need to stay away from. They include a running back with a first-round average draft position who has all kinds of red flags. This RB could sink your draft if you use a first round pick on him, so you ABSOLUTELY need to see Smith's complete breakdown.
