Biggest Fantasy Bust of 2021
Updated: Apr 15
Who is the player you expect to be this year's biggest fantasy bust and why?
I love Walker Buehler’s skills as much as the next guy; my bust pick just comes down to his workload concerns. The Dodgers clearly want to keep their young ace healthy, and, even though they’re competitive right now, they have the depth to keep him well-rested. After a season in which he only tossed 36 innings, his longest start was 6 innings, and he only surpassed 5 innings in two of his eight starts, why would the Dodgers suddenly use him like a traditional starter? At SP7 and 21 overall, I’d much rather have guys that are comparable on a per inning basis but will also far exceed Buehler in volume like Aaron Nola, Luis Castillo, Max Scherzer.
