5 Players To Cut In Fantasy Football After Week 2

Three are some Fantasy Football managers out there who are very disappointed with how the first two weeks have gone. Whether it is because of injuries or ineffective play to this point, dread is beginning to creep in for managers who are 0-2.

There is still plenty of time for a season to turn around. Making a timely addition from the waiver wire, which there is plenty of value this week, would certainly help. Unless you unfortunately have to move someone to the IR, someone is going to have to be removed from the roster to make an addition.

If you are looking to make some moves, there are a few players you can be comfortable releasing this week. The first player who can be cut from your Fantasy Football team is running back Ezekiel Elliott of the New England Patriots.

It is going to be tough to justify holding onto Elliott with the role he has played through two weeks. He has been on the field only 31 percent of the snaps and is behind Rhamondre Stevenson in all situations.

As a handcuff, Elliott is fine to hold onto, but some managers aren’t afforded that kind of luxury. Another running back who is safe to drop from your Fantasy Football team is D’Onta Foreman of the Chicago Bears.

Foreman was a healthy scratch in Week 2, a discouraging sign after he had a significant role in Week 1. Chicago opted to keep Khalil Herbert and rookie Roschon Johnson active instead, going with a two-man committee instead of three. 

With Travis Homer capable of operating as the No. 3 running back and handling third-down work, Foreman’s likely looking at more inactives. A release and latching on with a more running back-needy team would be best for him.

Heading back to New England, wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster should also find himself on the chopping block for your Fantasy Football team. He ran the second-most routes on the team but isn’t close to an every-down role.

An inconsistent role is a headache for Fantasy Football managers as the Patriots look intent on keeping their rookies Kayshon Boutte and Demario Douglas involved. A split with Douglas is a worst-case scenario for Smith-Schuster owners, making him a cut candidate.

Another wide receiver trending in the wrong direction is Rondale Moore of the Arizona Cardinals. Arizona has been more competitive than people thought they would be, but this offense isn’t anywhere near efficient enough to have multiple wide receivers relevant in Fantasy Football.

There isn’t enough volume in the passing game to go around as Moore has four receptions for 47 yards in two games. Marquise Brown is the only wide receiver with a consistent weekly role as Moore rotates with Zach Pascal and Michael Wilson. With Zach Ertz’s target share off the charts, Moore is dropable in Fantasy Football.

Last but not least, Los Angeles Chargers tight end Gerald Everett looks safe to drop. He made this list after Week 1 and any managers hoping things would change were disappointed. This was a three-man rotation against the Tennessee Titans, which is bad news for Everett.

He is efficient when he gets the ball, averaging 3.13 yards per route run and still breaking and avoiding tackles. But, the opportunities aren’t there. Playing less than 50 percent of the snaps, there are tight ends with more upside available in free agency in your Fantasy Football league.
