Last week, I wrote about the biggest surprises of the 2020-21 season. But Fantasy is just as much about the busts as it is the booms. Listed below are players drafted in the top 100 who failed to live up to expectations. I excluded players who are disappointing purely due to injury, so the following players have underperformed in their time on the court. If player rankings are referenced, it's on a per-game basis.

Russell Westbrook, Wizards
We have to at least give some credit to Westbrook for how well he's played recently. Since March 13, he's the 10th-best Fantasy player on a per-game basis. However, his struggles before that matter just as much, and he ranks just 33rd for the whole season. Considering Westbrook's ADP was 8, it's been a rough season for managers who took a chance on him having a return-to-form season with Washington.
