That's cool. We have different definitions of what a bust is. Can't really compare the two situations if that is the case.
I just find it hard to think players can be the best in football one year, and bust the next because of injury. Then possibly be the best the next year. Let's see what happens to David Johnson this year.
Carter just was unfortunate.
you also have to take the rating in context.
a bust in general is a player who does not come anywhere close to realizing their perceived potential at the time they were drafted.
so in actual football, a first round pick is a bust if they end up not becoming a starter or if they become a starter, but a crappy one.
in fantasy football, there is a bust for Dynasty and a bust for redraft. The two are not necessarily the same.
David Johnson was not a bust in general. he had a couple of great seasons for the cards and missed a season due to injury.
for Dynasty, hes not been a bust either. the person who drafted/kept him got good production out of him. just not for this year.
for redraft, he was likely a top 3 pick and would qualify as a bust for this year as he came nowhere close to fulfilling the promise that a top 3 pick in a redraft usually gives you.
