Maxed Out: Five Players Who Are Bound to Fall Short of Their Breakout Seasons From Last Year

  1. Odell Beckham Jr.- Don’t get me wrong this guy has phenomenal talent. With great hands, a positive outlook and mad springs, he has all the tools to be a great receiver, but he just did it all too fast. Expectations are way to high for this second year player who will spend the rest of his career trying in vain to replicate a ridiculous rookie year and an impossible catch.
  2. DeMarco Murray- It has nothing to do with the line he had in Dallas, it’s just that nobody is going to feed  Murray the amount of carries he had last season. He should still thrive in Philadelphia, but it is nearly impossible to repeat a year that took that much of a toll on this workhorse’s body.
  3. Andrew Luck- There is no doubt this young QB is special, and that he is destined to be one of the greats. However, after a season of having to make up for the disparity of the Colts defense by airing the ball out on a consistent basis, expect him to start to fall off earlier this year, and finish quite shy of last year’s stellar numbers.
  4. DeAndre Hopkins- With Andre Johnson gone, this young star is going to have to step up in a big way as he tries to carry a major portion of this offense. With uncertainty at the QB position, and question marks all over this offense, this could be a trying year for Hopkins.
  5. Justin Forsett- We have all heard his name for years and had been waiting for him to make some noise. Right about the time we started to forget about him, Forsett had a season none of us could have ever imagined. The sad part is, with the change in coaching philosophy in Baltimore, it appears his “15 minutes” are up, but it was sure fun while it lasted.
