3 Players To Drop
1. Ronald Jones II RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (49% owned Yahoo):
The 2nd round pick from USC was a healthy scratch Sunday following a poor preseason. With a stubborn HC in Koetter and Fitzmagic alive and well in Tampa Bay. This rookie needs to show something in practice before he sees the field.
2. Josh Doctson WR, Washington Redskins (40% owned Yahoo):
The third-year wide receiver has all the potential, but injury-plagued seasons and drop balls have cursed Doctson. With a healthy Reed and Thompson dominating catches. Jamison Crowder and the newly acquired Richardson ahead of him on the depth chart. The targets are not coming his way any time soon.
3. Greg Olsen TE, Carolina Panthers (98% owned Yahoo):
Greg “ 3rd leg” Olsen had the questionable tag going into week 1 with a back. He finished watching from the sidelines with the help of crutches and a walking boot. With an entire offseason to heal the Jones fracture in his foot, the thought of re-injury is devastating to the leader of the Carolina Panthers. As of now the Panthers just said Tuesday afternoon that he fractured his right foot and has no plans for surgery. He will miss a significant amount of time but will return this season. With the TE pool extremely thin in 2018, save yourself the aggravation of checking his weekly health status while he wastes a spot on your bench. I Recommend trying to grab one of the few tight ends still available before they are gone!
Good luck on the waivers and in week 2!
