I can't remember a year where so many high profile studs have been so bad.  It seems like half the first round is under-performing so I want to  compile a little list.

Who are the studs coming into the season that have turned into scrubs?

Injuries can happen to anyone so a guy like Julio Jones doesn't count, unless they were scrubbing it up before going down i.e. David Wilson.

I'll start it off with everyone's favorite punching bag......Trash Richardson.

Because the team around him is a dumpster fire.  He's the same old Gonzalez.

Basically my first 3 picks have been turds.

SJax

Ray Rice is my top choice considering he is only 26 years old and looks like he's played 40 seasons where he touched the ball 800 times a year.

I figured at worst he'd be a high end rb2, but he's not even that.

This. Even though Trent Richardson and a number of other running backs have sucked all season nobody has had as big a downfall over the season as Matt Ryan.

Matt Ryan's first 6 games: 320 yards per game average, 13 Touchdowns, 3 Interceptions
Last 3 games: 231 yards per game, 3 Touchdowns, 7 Interceptions

I think it's a little early to label ryan here. He had 6 solid games, and his last 3 were poor but against good D's. I think he'll be ok for a while, at least until his last 2 going up against Carolina and San Fran. If white gets healthier, and they are facing not top D's, think he'll be fine. If he has a bad game at Tampa bay this week, then I'd worry.
