Potential 2016 Quarterback Fantasy Busts

Every year there are fantasy players drafted in the first couple of rounds who turn out to be a disappointment or a bust. It is difficult to identify these players because sometimes their downfall is due to an injury to them or an injury to a key teammate that directly affects their fantasy production. No one can accurately project injuries or which players could be a potential bust, but there are some criteria you can review to try and identify players who could potentially be disappointing.

Below are 2016 Quarterbacks who could be potential busts due to a projected decrease in fantasy points lower than the previous year or a drop in depth chart from starting to backing up.
