3 Players To Drop: Week 10
Week 9 is complete and the bye-apocalypse is over and we hope you escaped with a win! It does get a little easier in week 10 with only 4 teams on bye. Denver, Minnesota, Baltimore and Houston. Here are 3 players on your squads to drop now to fill those spots! Make sure you read Top Guru Josh Trotta’s (@trotta23) (@tffgurus) weekly waiver article and get the knowledge on who to pick up as we head into week 10!
1. Nelson Agholor WR, Philadelphia Eagles (50 % owned Yahoo!)
The Philadelphia Eagles are coming off their bye week looking to keep the momentum going. Agholor has 50 yards or less in the last 5 games. Golden Tate is now on the squad and targets will become scarce for the slot wide receiver. Eagles now have Zach Ertz, Alshon Jeffery and Tate all ahead of Agholor in the pecking order. He is safe to drop.
2. Javorious “Buck” Allen RB, Baltimore Ravens (46 % owned Yahoo!)
One of the leagues top touchdown vultures will soon be getting vultured himself. Baltimore is on bye this week and will try to incorporate new acquisition Ty Montgomery into that offense. He’s been useful in PPR leagues, only seeing 2-3 carries a week but 5 targets, Buck Allen has been touchdown dependent all season and with those targets now being shared with Montgomery. Save yourself the headache and drop Buck now.
3. Derek Carr QB, Oakland Raiders (33% owned Yahoo!)
(insert all Raiders here) this team is a disaster. Fantasy owners should want no part of this team in anyway. Jon Gruden traded away Amari Cooper last week and seems hell-bent on getting the 1st pick in the draft. The team looks like they have completely given up on this season. Jared Cook might be the only player worth a roster spot because of the decimated TE corps in the league.
That does it for this weeks edition of 3 Players To Drop. Good luck in Week 10! You can find me on Twitter @drod4htown and the rest of us @tffgurus on twitter. You can also visit our website www.tffgurus.com for all your fantasy advice.
