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.
TIGHT ENDS—CUT THEM LOOSE
Dustin Keller, TE, New York Jets
Dustin Keller has scored zero fantasy points this season. He had a single catch for seven yards in Week 1 and has been out with a nagging hamstring injury ever since. It’s worth noting that the injury originally happened in the preseason and has been popping up every week since. That’s not a good sign. It’s likely Keller will be fighting through this injury all season. The New York Jets’ offense is bad enough right now, which means Keller isn’t worth hanging on in any but the deepest leagues.
Consider Dropping In: 10-team and 12-team Leagues

Jacob Tamme, TE, Denver Broncos
Jacob Tamme has been consistent if nothing else this season. He has consistently seen five targets per game and he is hauling in around four of them. The problem is that outside of his touchdown in Week 1, Tamme hasn’t done much of anything with those catches. He is averaging just 8.3 yards per catch and this isn’t encouraging given the lack of targets he’s getting. In Week 4, an outing in which Peyton Manning looked like his old self, Tamme managed only five catches for 38 yards. Even worse, Joel Dreessen is coming in for all the red zone work making Tamme even less valuable. Don’t bail on Tamme yet in all formats but owners of squads in 10 and 12-team leagues should at least consider it.
Consider Dropping In: 10-team and 12-team Leagues; especially non-PPR formats
