Week 5 Drops

Going into week 5 you might be very happy with your team and others....not so much.  Either side, there is always room for improvement.  What this article is designed for is to make decisions of dropping players to add new ones much easier.  I strictly focus on the droppable players but you can see who we think you should add once the room on your roster is made at Week 5 Pickups.

Quarterback-Ryan Tannehill MIA has disappointed with his lackluster performances the first four weeks with somewhat of an easier schedule.  The only time he had any fantasy relevance was when he played Jacksonville and unfortunately they don't play each other again.  The Dolphins were a lot of peoples sleeper pick with the potentially potent offense and some newly acquired, highly talented defensive players, but the 1-3 performance so far has changed those peoples minds. 

Running Back- Joique Bell DET even if he is 100% he still does not provide much upside to your fantasy roster.  He has not been the player that we had hoped with stats of barely over a yard per carry.  It would take Joique to be completely healthy, A. Abdullah injured, and some upgrades on their line in order to for him to have fantasy value.  It may sound a little harsh, but it is the truth.

Wide Receiver- Roddy White ATL is playing in his eleventh season and his fantasy adding skills are next to nothing with only having 6 receptions on 13 targets.  With all of the Falcons talent that is younger, and in most cases more skilled, it leaves White as playing more of a possession receiver and lose hardly have any fantasy value.  There are many other options as your WR2 or WR3 that we like over White.

Tight End- Kyle Rudolph MIN is a tough choice for me to drop, but I think that it is the right one.  With captain two touchdown Teddy at the helm, most all fantasy receivers on the Vikings lose some value.  With Rudolph, that means he is less likely to get into the end zone compared to other tight ends available.  Rudolph will be good in the years to come once Bridgewater settles down and gets more experience, but at this time it is not necessary to have him on your team and give you a below average performance.  Kyle currently has a little over 100 yards with one touchdown so far this year.
