5 Fantasy Football Studs Who Started Slow in Week 1: Should We Panic?

Todd Gurley finished with a poor fantasy outing in Week 1. Will he turn things around?

Yes, one week doesn't define an entire season, but while we shouldn't overreact to a rough start to the season, that doesn't mean we shouldn't react to it.

Each year there are top players who are drafted to be the anchors of your fantasy football team but who end up busting due to injury, ineffectiveness, or lack of talent. In 2015, there were players like Jeremy Hill, Fat Eddie Lacy, Randall Cobb and DeMarco Murray.
