2010 fantasy football draft guide: wide receiver WR overrated players. Welcome to the 2010 fantasy football season! Here are my top 3 wide receiver WR overrated player picks to begin the 2010 fantasy football season. Overrated player picks are based on a standard mixed NFC/AFC single season redraft fantasy football league for the 2010 season. Wide receiver WR overrated player selections are based on players who will likely be drafted earlier in 2010 fantasy football drafts than what their overall fantasy football scoring worth will warrant for the 2010 season. Wide receiver WR overrated player selections should not be considered busts, as they could easily and should put up solid stats during the 2010 season. However, overrated player selections are essentially players I would not reach for or draft too high in fantasy football drafts to begin the 2010 season.

Wide Receiver (WR) Overrated Players
Dwayne Bowe – KC
After posting his worst season stat wise in the NFL over his three year career, I would not at all be surprised to see Bowe have another down season in 2010. With the addition of Thomas Jones to a Chiefs running game that already includes Jamal Charles, and iffy quarterback play with Matt Cassel and no real better option after him, it seems reasonable to expect the Chiefs to be a run first offense during the 2010 season. With many fantasy football rankings placing Bowe just inside the top 20 WRs to begin the 2010 season, I would drop Bowe down to around the #30 spot among all fantasy football WRs. Honestly, I just do not see the upside in Bowe to tally that many receiving yards this season, and him scoring touchdowns is even less likely.
Percy Harvin – Min
The random occasional migraine was no doubt frustrating for fantasy football teams last season who were depending on Harvin as a starter down the stretch. Now add in the possible loss of Brett Favre at quarterback, and Harvin could be facing a major uphill battle to produce quality and reliable stats for fantasy football teams during the 2010 season. Any ranking inside the top 20 among WRs to begin the season is just way too high to draft Harvin in any fantasy football league, unless your league scores return yards, then Harvin may be worth that early pick if he gets the kick and punt return job again for the Vikings in 2010. Otherwise, in standard scoring fantasy football leagues, I would not gamble on drafting Harvin too early because he is just not a certainty to produce reliable stats each and every week like a top 20 WR should.
Santana Moss – Was
While many may believe that the addition of Donovan McNabb will catapult Moss into fantasy football greatness during the 2010 season, I am remaining skeptical. No matter what anyone says, Moss is just not build to be an excellent WR in the NFL. Yes he is fast and has breakaway speed, but in reality this just means that Moss is a homerun or strikeout candidate each week on a fantasy team starting roster. Combine that with a virtually non existent second wide receiver on the Redskins offense, and we all know that Moss will get every defenses best cornerback covering him each week. All in all, I would not buy into the hype of McNabb making Moss a anything more than a top 30 fantasy football WR during the 2010 season. If you can draft Moss around pick #35 among WRs you are getting a solid deal, but anything in the 20s is just too high to draft Moss among fellow WRs.
