This was a good week for most fantasy football options out there! There aren’t a lot of guys that I am running out and cutting, and I am going to preach patience here as we reach week eleven. Still, if you have to make room on your roster, then I am here to help. To make this list, a player must be on rosters in at least 50% of Yahoo! leagues.
Trevor Lawrence, Jacksonville Jaguars (95% rostered)
Lawrence heads into his bye next week, and he will only score 2.1 fewer fantasy points in week eleven than he did in week ten. Lawrence just hasn’t been there for fantasy managers this season, probably because his receivers are top-ten in drops, and Travis Etienne is top-three in 10+ yard rushing touchdowns. Lawrence bottomed out on Sunday, but he hasn’t come through for his fantasy managers yet this season, finishing inside the top-ten twice this year, and just once since week one.
Derek Carr, New Orleans Saints (61% rostered)
Derek Carr has been downright bad all season long for the Saints, and now he’s dealing with a concussion and a shoulder injury. He’s QB24 in fantasy points per game, and there isn’t much under the hood to make you excited for him. Carr has the fourth-most air yards but is chilling outside the top-25 in fantasy points per dropback. The opportunity to produce is there, he just isn’t snatching it. Free him and his mesmerizing naturally mascaraed eyes from your roster.
Christian Watson, Green Bay Packers (70% rostered)
Watson and Love aren’t very good separately, so it shouldn’t shock you to learn that they aren’t very good together. Watson has 17 targets in his last three games, but he’s done nothing with them, totaling 103 yards on 6 catches on those targets. You can hold on one more week, given how much of a sieve the Chargers defense was in week ten, but I wouldn’t keep him much longer than that.
Alexander Mattison, Minnesota Vikings (83% rostered)
Mattison finished week ten with 8 carries for 27 yards, and 1 catch for 6 yards, finishing with 4.3 fantasy points. This marks the third time in four games that Mattison hasn’t crossed the 7 PPR point threshold. It was a tough matchup against the Saints, so if you want to hold on for the primo Denver matchup, I won’t blame you. But, we need to find guys to cut and it was a great week for fantasy football-relevant running backs.
Zack Moss, Indianapolis Colts (70% rostered)
He had one carry. The dream is dead.
Chuba Hubbard (70% rostered) & Miles Sanders (66% rostered), Carolina Panthers
These two combined for 8.9 PPR points on Thursday. Going into Sunday Night Football, that would have been RB30.
Darren Waller, New York Jets (67% rostered)
Waller is on IR and we won’t see him again this season. Let it go.
