The difference between winning your Fantasy football league or going home with nothing often comes down to the picks you make on Draft Day. Drafting a Fantasy bust can set your team back in a major way and have you scrambling to make the playoffs.

Now, Eisenberg has released his highly-anticipated 2019 busts list, revealing busts at QB, RB, WR and TE. These are part of the CBS Sports Fantasy Football 2019 Draft Guide that hits newsstands the second week of June, but you can get exclusive early access at SportsLine.
We can tell you Eisenberg is warning Fantasy football owners about Vikings WR Adam Thielen.
"Thielen is a star receiver and a standout Fantasy option. But he makes me a little nervous this season, which is why I will likely avoid him on Draft Day in most leagues," Eisenberg said. "It's a small sample size, but Thielen did not play at a high level once the Vikings went to Kevin Stefanski as the offensive coordinator in the final three games of the 2018 season. Over that span, Thielen had 10 catches for 137 yards and no touchdowns on 12 targets, and he scored six PPR points or fewer in two outings. By comparison, Stefon Diggs had 14 catches for 107 yards and three touchdowns on 23 targets during those three games, and Kyle Rudolph had 16 catches for 164 yards and two touchdowns on 17 targets."
Eisenberg also has a strong warning about a running back who will be flying off draft boards in the first round. Avoiding this bust could be the difference between winning and losing your league.
So which top running back should you steer clear of, and which other players will be total busts in 2019? ...
