I'd like to compile a list of WR's to AVOID. Because they will show up once a year, like Christmas. A list of WR's to DND in the future. Don't draft them, at *any* ADP. Mental note.

Here's the resume: they blow up one week, score like 30+ fantasy points, then you fall in love with them if you drafted them or got them off the wire, keep them in your lineup week after week while they do nothing, refuse any trade offer b/c they are obviously your League Winner But then they score 1-3 points for the next 2-5 weeks, then they get injured., & you wind up hating them

I'll start. In the future, I vow that I will not draft, or spend FAAB $ on:

DeSean Jackson
Will Fuller
looks like Marquise "Hollywood" Brown belongs (this was my Fool's Gold this year, the others have been in previous years)
Robby Anderson
Sammy Watkins

Who else is Fool's Gold we should collectively avoid? Blow up one week. Disappear the rest of the season.

Hollywood Brown
Mecole Hardman

Are two guys I added and have since dropped because they burned me by starting them.

Take advantage of those that DND Hollywood Brown. Rookie recovering from a serious foot injury, missed the whole offseason, is still dealing with it, and has net some good performances despite all of that.

Most WR's are boom/bust

Only ones that arent are top5 skill wise stuff, physical freak type players

Megatron
Moss
Owens
Julio

And even they had times of boom/bust

Or your ppr gold type wr's - but most lack in td output

Goff and Carr are the same type of QBs only in the sense that they both wear helmets and have four letters in their last name.

I don't think Renfro is seeing enough snaps at this point. That might change moving forward though.

Definitely, took a flyer on him in both leagues I am in. I'm currently happy with what I am seeing

This name might be controversial but I wanna say Jamison Crowder, like clock work he goes off once a year for a few games and either fades out or injury and we never see him again.

Great talent, I wish I could see a full season of him with a QB he has chemistry with like now. He could be Tyler Lockett esk'.

Split a team with my. Either and he took those two as well and of course the games they went off, were on our bench!

Actually each have 3 letters in their last name, with one repeated, ending in a double letter.
