If you play DFS you know most people were high on Eric Bledsoe ahead of the New Orleans Pelicans’ Christmas Day matchup against the Miami Heat. To say he busted would be an understatement. While the former Milwaukee Buck scored 18 points against the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday he busted in his second game of the season.

Bledsoe tallied a whopping 6 points on 2-of-10 shooting in 32 minutes. He also put totaled 2 rebounds and 6 assists, but that’s much less than most people would expect to get from a player priced at $5,600 on DraftKings. He was rostered at 34.8 percent in the five-game slate’s Milly Maker and surely ended the first-place dreams of plenty of entries. New Orleans’ starting backcourt underperformed as a whole and combined for 11 points thanks to Lonzo Ball’s 6 points.
