Week 4 of the fantasy football season is in the books and we now have a pretty good idea on the players set to underachieve this season. Some players are just stuck on terrible teams while others are just plain bad. We’ve also added a few players to the list that should be dropped because of injury. If you read our Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Savior articles and are wondering who to drop this week, have a look at the list below. All of these guys are safe cuts in most league formats.
TEAM DEFENSE—CUT THEM LOOSE
Washington Redskins DST
The Redskins’ defense has been carried by big plays so far this season, scoring two defensive touchdowns through four games. They haven’t been getting much pressure on quarterbacks with only seven sacks and they’ve given up plenty of points and yardage. With the loss of edge rusher Brian Orakpo to a season ending injury we don’t see this stat changing in the near future. Take into considertion a tough matchup in Week 5 against an Atlanta Falcons’ offense that is absolutely destroying opposing defenses and you have a recipe for disaster.
The Falcons have yet to fumble and Matt Ryan has thrown only 2 interceptions. He was sacked seven times last week; however that was a fluke and don’t expect Washington to get half that total. Ryan was sacked only three times in the prior three games. Washington will have their hands full this week. You don’t want anything to do with them.
Consider Dropping In: 10-team, 12-team and 14 Team Leagues
Cut Them Loose Watch List: Philadelphia Eagles DST, Detroit Lions DST, New York Jets DST
Keep Them Cut: Kansas City Chiefs DST, Jacksonville Jaguars DST, San Diego Chargers DST
