The Cut List - Players on the Chopping Block (Week 7)

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 7 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

Quincy Enunwa (WR, NYJ)

There are a lot of problems with Quincy Enunwa right now. For starters, he's hurt. Enunwa left last week's game with an ankle injury and looks certain to miss at least this week's game. Enunwa stormed out of the gate with 21 targets over his first two games and 18.3 and 16.2 fantasy points in each of his first two contests. Since then, his targets have consistently decreased and he has 0.1 fewer points than I do over the two most recent games. The injury combined with the diminished usage and the low volume passing offense makes it okay to move on.

Kenny Stills (WR, MIA)

I'm surprised as I had to even put him on here. Kenny Stills is rostered in way too many leagues. At best, he is the third most talented WR on the Dolphins. He has yet to see more than six targets in a game and outside of his 4-106-2 Week 1, Stills hasn't put up a performance that could ever survive without a touchdown. Touchdown-dependent WR5s are easy to find. You don't need to roster Stills.

Keelan Cole (WR, JAX)

His ownership rate has predictably gone down, but Keelan Cole should still be owned in fewer leagues. Blake Bortles has no business quarterbacking an NFL team. Combine that with Cole's inconsistent targeting and the Jaguars' overall poor offense and the talented wideout can be relegated to the waiver wire.

Mike Williams (WR, LAC)

I understand the allure of touchdowns, but this idea that Mike Williams was somehow a) better than Tyrell Williams, b) going to usurp Tyrell Williams, or c) continue scoring touchdowns at a ridiculously unsustainable rate was ludicrous. Mike hasn't scored a touchdown in his last three games and has a combined 10 targets while very clearly being the fourth option in the passing game behind Keenan Allen, Tyrell, and Melvin Gordon. Mike belongs on waiver wires.

Dion Lewis (RB, TEN)

Last week, Derrick Henry was here. Now, Dion Lewis is joining him. I've noticed a lot of people spend a lot of time trying to decipher who the guy will be in joint backfields. Sometimes, the answer is simply: "no one." Outside of Corey Davis, who is just a matchup-dependent WR3, no Titan needs to be owned in fantasy, including both running backs. Lewis has scored seven or fewer fantasy points in four out of his six games. He hasn't found the end zone since Week 1. You can't trust him against the Chargers this week and the following week is the Titans' bye. No need to hold here.


Players You May Be Considering Dropping, But Shouldn't

Alfred Blue (RB, HOU)

Truth be told, you probably can drop Alfred Blue if you must. I only put him here because Lamar Miller is terrible at football and reliable RBs are difficult to find. If you can afford to stash Blue on the chance the Texans decide to just turn to him as the starter, it's worth it, but I understand if you need to make a move elsewhere.
