The fantasy football season is young but we’ve already seen enough of some players to know that they are going to live up to our draft day expectations of them. Whether the plays has fallen behind on their teams’ depth charts, suffered an injury or bad play, these guys just aren’t worth rostering right now.
In any case, it’s really easy to want to cut all kinds of players this early in the season but we definitely advise against it. We’ve already release our list of waiver pickups to target in the Weekly Waiver Wire Savior. There are a lot of underachieving players that we would hang onto for at least another couple weeks, but here’s a list of the guys we’d drop right now to make room for potential additions. Just remember it’s too early in the season to start dumping elite players like Chris Johnson. Give your elite fantasy football players a chance to bounce back this week. A lot can change with another game in the books.
TIGHT ENDS—CUT THEM LOOSE
Dallas Clark, TE, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The fantasy football community appears to have been justified in believing that wear and tear is catching up to Clark. He wasn’t a significant target in the new run oriented Buccaneers’ offense. He did land a long 33 yard catch in the first quarter but didn’t receive a single target the rest of the game. He appears primed for a blocking role. There’s no reason to think he puts up significant fantasy numbers this year. Drop him for one of the numerous young tight ends available in all leagues.

Lance Kendricks, TE, St. Louis Rams
It seems that Lance Kendricks never has a chance to meet expectations. He has the tools to produce at an elite level but he can’t seem to buy a target. The team is always excited about him yet when the games actually start they act like he isn’t even on the field. In week one Kendricks caught both of the targets thrown to him for 16 yards. Even tight end Mike McNeill had a catch for 10 yards. What exactly is Kendricks doing wrong? Nothing about him screams “play me” for fantasy purposes even with great matchups. Until he proves he can consistently produce and get targets he should be relegated to the waiver wire in most leagues.
