Week 16 FAIL: Championship Failures 

Here are a few players who just didn’t quite live up to expectations this week. Were they over-rated to begin with? Did they just have a bad game? Were they benched because their team was dominating (or getting dominated?) It’s probably just a one week mishap, but if they land on this list a couple weeks in a row, you might start worrying! Anyways, feel free to add to the discussion with your own. Maybe someone that you blame this week’s loss on?

With championships around the world on the line, a couple superstars decided it was a good day to take the day off. Andre Johnson was a late scratch and Maurice Jones-Drew left fantasy owners high and dry (unless they picked up Rashad Jennings to back him up!) Philip Rivers and the rest of the Chargers played one of their worst games of the season, while Peyton Hillis, Michael Turner and Chris Johnson tried their hardest to (not) reward those who relied on them all season. Anyways, hopefully you still managed to pull off the victory in your league’s championship!

I’ve included the entire season count of FAIL’s as a separate worksheet in the spreadsheet, so you can click the “Season” tab and see where each player stacks up.

Anyways, here are the rest of them (and here’s a direct link to the spreadsheet)…
