3 Players To Drop: Week 7
Boom!! Week 6, guns were a blazing as offenses were scoring at will and high scores were topped for the NFL season and in your fantasy leagues. Now with week 7 approaching we get closer to bye week hell with 4 teams out this week. Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Seattle and Oakland will create some massive holes in starting lineups. 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 you need heading into week 7!
DeVonta Freeman RB, Atlanta Falcons (92% owned Yahoo!)
Freeman was placed on Injured Reserve Tuesday morning for his groin. He will undergo surgery and is also nursing a foot contusion. He is a candidate to return per Ian Rappaport of NFL network but he will miss a minimum of 8 weeks. With most of the team byes happening in the next few weeks. Now is the time to fill your bench with depth, not players on IR. It’s safe to drop Freeman.
Quincy Enunwa WR, New York Jets (42% owned Yahoo!)
Enunwa was a high waiver target just a few weeks ago but suffered a high ankle sprain in week 6. Gang Green lost its top target in the passing game for at least 3 weeks. A troublesome injury for a slot receiver cutting across the field. The Jets are on bye week 11 and it’s very possible we don’t see Quincy Enunwa back until week 12 which is 5 weeks from now. Drop him and target the healthy receivers under owned in this weeks waiver claim.
Larry Fitzgerald WR, Arizona Cardinals (80% owned Yahoo!)
Larry Legend, the future Hall of Famer has struggled to gain any momentum this season. Fitzgerald has not surpassed 40 yards receiving since week 1 and has zero touchdowns on the year. He has been on the injury report weekly, limited with a hamstring. With Josh Rosen behind center, the rookie has been targeting fellow rookie Christian Kirk. Arizona is struggling to get David Johnson the ball never mind Larry Fitz. The veteran’s best days are behind him and he barely holds value in PPR leagues. Larry Fitzgerald can be dropped.
And that does it for this weeks edition of 3 Players To Drop. Good luck in Week 7! 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!
