- Mike Clay, Fantasy Football
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.
Texans RB Arian Foster could win you your fantasy league in 2014 -- but he could also ruin your team. Mike Clay of Pro Football Focus runs through his boom-or-bust fantasy picks, with Foster at the top of the list.
