The Cut List - Players on the Chopping Block (Week 15)

This is your weekly list of players to drop. I will do my best to limit this list to injured players and players you might consider holding. If you roster pure handcuffs or backups, obviously you can let them go at any time. The players on this list will, ideally, be guys that aren't clearly droppable, but no longer worth owning.

Below are my Week 15 cuts and drops for fantasy football. Each week from now until the end of the season, I’ll be offering my thoughts on players who don’t deserve to keep a roster spot on your fantasy football teams.

Let's get to it.

Players to Consider Dropping or Replacing

Kenny Golladay (WR, DET)

Yes. It has come to this. There are two weeks left in the fantasy season and on the slate for Kenny Golladay is a matchup with the Bills' top ranked pass defense and then Xavier Rhodes and the Vikings. It is unlikely you will want to start Golladay again so you can just drop him.

Calvin Ridley (WR, ATL)

Another guy you're never starting, Calvin Ridley just isn't an important part of the offense. Whenever he has a big game, it's a random accident. Ridley has 3-37 or worse in four of his past five games. You can do better.

Jalen Richard (RB, OAK)

The Raiders somehow beat the Steelers last week, but it had nothing to do with Jalen Richard. This is the Doug Martin show and Richard producing is nothing more than an unpredictable game event. Richard's ceiling and floor are both incredibly low. You don't need him.

Jordan Reed (TE, WAS)

I don't know what's more surprising - that it took Jordan Reed this long to appear here because of an injury or that he hasn't been worth starting all season anyway? Reed sprained his foot and had to be helped off the field Sunday. With the Redskins now deploying Josh Johnson at quarterback, there is no hope for anyone starting Redskins even if Reed could go. I expect he will be placed on IR this week.

Jonnu Smith (TE, TEN)

Another name on here due to injury, Jonnu Smith sprained his MCL and is done for the season. If he does find his way back onto the field, it won't be until the NFL playoffs. He was nothing more than a streaming option anyway, but even in deeper leagues, drop him.


Players You May Be Considering Dropping, But Shouldn't

At this point, with just two weeks left in the fantasy season, you can drop pretty much anyone you don't plan on using over the next two weeks. No longer do you have to hang onto players hoping for a late season turnaround. We are later in the season. If they haven't turned it around by now, it's not going to happen.
