The NFL season is half way over, which means that fantasy playoffs are right around the corner. If you are a playoff team you probably avoided these players. Let’s list off the top five players we hate (that we drafted).
This list is based on guys that have been playing but not producing. If they are injured I give them a pass. If they are LeVeon Bell I refuse to speak his name out loud in public.
Derrick Henry, RB, Tennessee Titans
Derrick Henry was suppose to have his coming out party in the playoffs last year. Damn was I wrong. The Titans left DeMarco Murray walk in the off season, which meant that Henry would be the guy right?? Nope Dion Lewis has taken over the bulk of the carries in the backfield. Henry is averaging a staggering 3.3 yards per carry so far in 2018.
Henry also gives you nothing on the receiving end with eight catches the entire season! Henry is trending in the direction of fellow Alabama alumni Trent Richardson, I would look for him to be moved in the off season unless things change drastically. I hate you Derrick Henry!
LeSean McCoy, RB, Buffalo Bills
McCoy has had a great fantasy career, but currently I have the same amount of Touchdowns as he does this season. It’s zero in case that wasn’t clear. I know the Buffalo offense is a joke. Nathan Peterman is the equivalent of a dumpster fire while on the field, but McCoy is still only averaging 3.1 yards per carry this season. Chris Ivory has become more relevant out of the backfield. I really don’t need to say much more than that. I may not have drafted you in any leagues LeSean but I hate you for those who did.
Kenyan Drake, RB, Miami Dolphins, Kenny Stills, WR, Miami Dolphins
Drake has had his moments this season, especially when I have had to face him. But overall he has been a bust this season. The ageless Frank Gore has taken away carries from the 2017-18 fantasy surprise. Miami has had their issues at Quarterback, starting Brock Osweiler (not sure that’s how you spell it but who cares). The QB situation has caused problems for the Dolphins but they should still be able to utilize Drake out of the backfield in passing situations but for some reason they refuse to do it consistently.
I added Kenny Stills to this list because I am tired of hearing about his potential. Stills disappears in games to the point where he literally gets no targets.
Kenyan and Kenny I hate you both equally.
Nelson Agholor, WR, Philadelphia Eagles
Nelson had a great start to the season then the return of Alshon Jeffery made him basically disappear. Agholor had 8 Touchdowns last year, half way through the season he is sitting at one. He has been so bad that literally the Eagles went out and found a replacement for him at the deadline, adding Golden Tate.
Has Agholor forgotten how to run a route? Has Carson Wentz forgotten that he is on the team. Why do you suck now Nelson? I hate you!
