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 2017 Running Backs 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.
