3 Players To Drop: Week 13
The final week of the fantasy regular season is here! We hope you have guided your team to the playoffs but most are in must-win scenarios. No more bye weeks left for NFL teams but big injuries in week 12 have left some owners scrambling. Here are 3 players to drop before the playoffs start, grab someone that will make an impact on your team! 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 13.
Season-ending injury: drop in all leagues
- Andy Dalton QB, Cincinnati Bengals (thumb placed on IR)
- Jack Doyle TE, Indianapolis Colts (kidney placed on IR)
- Marvin Jones Jr. WR, Detroit Lions (knee placed on IR).
1. John Brown WR, Baltimore Ravens. (67% owned Yahoo!).
John Brown had a fantastic start to the season but the Ravens offense has completely changed with the injury to Joe Flacco. With Lamar Jackson behind center, the Ravens have become the most run dominate team in the NFL. Brown’s speed is game-changing, but useless if the coaching staff doesn’t let Lamar Jackson throw. With 8 catches and no touchdowns in the last 4 games. Drop John Brown.
2. DeSean Jackson WR, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (81% owned Yahoo!)
Another WR on this list that had a great start. Fitzmagic treated DeSean well going deep to him early and often. The ol’ gunslinger is back on the bench and so is Jackson’s production. Jameis Winston targets Mike Evans first then a combination of Chris Godwin, Adam Humphries, Cameron Brate and Jackson…Too unpredictable and the boom/bust king can be safely dropped.
3. Ito Smith RB, Atlanta Falcons (45% owned Yahoo!)
With Devonte Freeman down and Tevin Coleman’s injury history, Ito Smith was a popular add a few weeks ago. Atlanta defense continues to struggle causing the Falcons to always be in attack mode. Bad game script for the touchdown dependent Ito Smith. Coleman has looked great and Atlanta’s remaining schedule Is stacked with tough run defenses. Ito Smith won’t be a factor going forward, he can be dropped.
That does it for this weeks edition of 3 Players To Drop. Good luck in Week 13! 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
