8 Worst Fantasy Football Picks So Far This Season

It doesn't take too long to realize you might have made a mistake . You have patience after the first week, begin to actually fear you made a mistake the second week, and then begin to loath yourself, the player, and the situation after yet another dud in Week 3. There's still plenty of football left to turn things around, but there are a few players who are certainly liabilities for their teams thus far. Here are the eight worst fantasy picks so far. 

8. Los Angeles Chargers D/ST

The Chargers came into the year looking like a sleeper to potentially be the best fantasy team in football. They have not even come close to those expectations. It has part to do with injuries, as Jason Verrett is out for the year and Joey Bosa is expected to miss time. But their problems go much further than their absence. They're currently second to last in points allowed, have just five sacks, and are currently 27th in ESPN standard scoring leagues. 

7. Dak Prescott, QB, Dallas Cowboys

Let's play a fun game! When was the last time Dak Prescott passed for 200 yards? Considering he's a highly thought of QB in this league, you'd assume it would be recently right? Well if you guessed December 17, 2017, then you'd be correct? He can't do much of anything as of late. He clearly can't get yards and has only scored two touchdowns while tossing two picks. If he's still on your roster at this point, you were blessed with an extreme amount of patience. 

6. Amari Cooper. WR, Oakland Raider

So many people probably came into the year saying to themselves, "he can't possibly be just as bad as he was last year, right?" The answer is yes, yes he absolutely can! Cooper had a solid Week 2 performance with 10 catches for 116 yards, but in the other two games combined he only has three catches for 26. He's a goose egg candidate each and every week and simply looks like a swing and a miss. 

5. Jimmy Graham, TE, Green Bay Packers

Few tight ends in this league have had a higher potential while also coming in with a proven resume. Graham is one of the best players at his position and was teaming up with one of the best QBs in the game in Aaron Rodgers. Instead of putting up mind-blowing stats like many hoped he would, he has yet to reach the end zone and has not eclipsed 100 yards once. There's time for him and Rodgers to click, but he has had far from a hot start in an extremely top-heavy position. 

4. Larry Fitzgerald, WR, Arizona Cardinals

You guys know the scene in "Good Will Hunting" where Robin Williams continuously says "it's not your fault" to Matt Damon until he breaks down and cries? Someone has to do the same thing to Fitzgerald. The poor guy hasn't had a good QB in years but has always produced. Now that isn't happening as he has averaged less than 40 yards per game. There's still hope Josh Rosen can save him, but we also may have seen out last good Fitzgerald year. 

3. Derrick Henry, RB, Tennessee Titans

Henry looked like a world-eater as a backup last season and somehow has turned into a nobody now that he's top dog. Instead of the long, ridiculous runs we saw a year ago, the man has averaged a porous three yards per carry. He hasn't found the end zone and hasn't broken 60 yards. He's not even close to the RB1 ceiling owners dreamed about. 

2. LeSean McCoy, RB, Buffalo Bills

McCoy has had very few opportunities to succeed due to the awful team he plays for, but also hasn't impressed when he got the ball. Not only has he had less than 10 carries in his first two games, but only has 61 yards and is nursing an injury that kept him out of Week 3. He came into the season as a risk due to off-field issues, but it seems like his problems on the field might be just as large. 

1. Le'Veon Bell, RB, Pittsburgh Steelers

There should be a gigantic gap between Bell and the No. 2 spot because he's in a league of his own here. He realistically went first or second in the vast majority of fantasy football leagues and has yet to play a snap. There's no word on when he'll come back as the Steelers have even removed him from their online roster. Having a top pick in the draft is normally a gift, but it turned into a nightmare if you decided to select Bell.
