If we're talking about guys who might be considered busts after this year, I have some names to throw out.

Sam Bradford - I think he'll be closer to a bust by the end of this year than anything resembling a quality NFL QB.

Mark Sanchez - Sticking with my "benched by week 6" prediction. I don't know how they'd justify keeping him around if that happens after this year, money be damned.

Jason Smith - Already been benched for the awful Barry Richardson. Would have been cut if not for taking a huge pay cut. Underrated in how bad of pick he was.

Kevin Kolb - Not exactly going out on a limb here...I bet he's cut after this season. Would be sooner if they had any other QB on the roster who could back up Skelton.

Shonne Green - Simply isn't a guy who can carry the full load in the NFL.

Blaine Gabbert - Anyone who has ever read any of my posts in the NFL section should know why.

Matt Cassel - Best case scenario, that team drags him to 10 wins again. Worst case (or perhaps it really is the best case,) he continues to be mediocre-average and the team decides to move on.

Carson Palmer - Proves to be one of the worst trades in NFL history, setting the Raiders back 5 years.
Your entire list violates rule #2.

I think Arian Foster may have a relatively disappointing year by his recent standards. Sure the Texans run it well, but they lost the right side of their offensive line, a healthy Schaub and AJ will mean they will throw more and Ben Tate is a guy who is more than capable to give Foster a breather.

I think Foster led the league in RB touches last year, however I think that will go down with an eye on the playoffs to keep him fresh.
imo tate is more than capable of stepping right in for foster without them missing a beat. Both are good backs, but are running in a great system that fits them perfectly

Confidence and another year is fine and all and I do expect him to get around 75-85 catches but no where near 1500 yards.

Looking at his touchdowns, you have:

74 Yards
28 Yards
68 Yards
25 Yards
24 Yards
72 Yards
4 Yards
99 Yards
74 Yards

Despite having 21 catches through the playoffs, he had 1 TD and his longes catch was 36 Yards. He's a valuable player between the 20s but relies on the big play in order to get in the end zone because of the huge red zone target opposite of him.
