Fantasy football rankings & ADP: Busts from model that beat experts warns about Derek Carr, Marshawn Lynch

Last season, Allen Robinson was plucked off Fantasy football draft boards as the seventh-highest wide receiver, ahead of guys like Mike Evans (12 TDs) and T.Y. Hilton (1,448 yards). 

Instead of repeating his 14-TD campaign from 2015, Robinson face-planted. He failed to top 900 yards receiving and only scored six times.

The team at SportsLine was all off Robinson last year. Their model, which was originally used to power Fantasy Football projections at the three largest sites, had Robinson finishing well outside the top 10. He ended the season as the WR28.

If you're drafting this year, you need to check out SportsLine's cheat sheets. When it came to ranking players last season, their model out-performed human experts by 25 percent when there was a big difference in ranking -- four spots for a QB, seven for a RB, and nine for a WR. 

Plus, their cheat sheets are available for every major Fantasy Football site, so no matter where you play, you can use them. And they're updated every four hours, so any time news breaks, you'll have the latest fantasy football rankings at your fingertips.

One huge bust SportsLine is calling this season: Raiders QB Derek Carr. He has an ADP in the seventh round, but SportsLine's cheat sheets have him ranked the same as Tyrod Taylor (11th round) and Matthew Stafford (10th round). Don't be fooled by Carr's hype.

Another player you'll want to steer clear of: Marshawn Lynch. His ADP is in the third round, but with reports that the Raiders could limit his carries, the team at SportsLine has him ranked the same as the Ravens' Terrence West, who's going five rounds later.

SportsLine's cheat sheets are also calling for an explosive tight end to bust in a major way. Rather than targeting him, the projections call for Zach Ertz and Eric Ebron to have similar production.

So what busts should you avoid in your fantasy football draft? And what big-name tight end could ruin your season? Visit SportsLine now to get fantasy football cheat sheets from the model that called Allen Robinson's face-plant last season and find out.
