Ask the Expert Question: Who are your 2012 fantasy disappoinments and who will bounce back and not recover?

There were plenty of fantasy disappointments in 2012. It's early, obviously, but pick one you believe will bounce back in 2013, and one that won't, and say why.

My bust list is long and distinguished: MJD, Darren McFadden, Philip Rivers, Greg Jennings and Hakem Nicks. To be fair most were injury related. So as far as MJD, Greg Jennings and Darren McFadden I have no problem with drafting them next year. Hakeem Nicks was a huge disappointment because he had one big game (35.90 points in week 2), four missed games and a 9.5 average for all the other games. Buyer beware! Rivers finished 20th in QBs and gave owners a dismal 17 point weekly average. I will avoid him in 2013 as my starting QB.
