Boom-or-bust picks for 2014
Foster among players who could win you your league -- or ruin your team
Picking out the biggest boom/bust players in the league can be a tricky exercise. After all, there are no safe bets in fantasy football. How good do you think owners whose first three picks last season were Doug Martin, Julio Jones and Randall Cobb felt? That warm feeling didn't last long.
Still, the only way to maximize your chances of winning a league title is to assess the upside and risk of each and every player. I've identified one player from each of the first eight rounds -- based on ESPN.com average draft position (ADP) -- who fits the profile of a boom/bust producer.
Put another way, these players, for better or worse, will decide the fate of your season. Select them at your own risk.
To read Mike Clay's list of boom-or-bust picks for every round of fantasy football drafts, you must be an ESPN Insider.
