Week 7 of the fantasy football is in the books and we now have a pretty good idea of 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 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.
KICKERS—CUT THEM LOOSE
Blair Walsh, K, Minnesota Vikings
Blair Walsh has been excellent all year but that’s likely to come to an end. He’s had fairly good quality matchups this season but has some terrible ones down the stretch. This week Walsh goes up against a Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ team then against a very good Seattle Seahawks defense in Week 9. Walsh faces the Detroit Lions again in Week 10 and that is the last viable matchup he has the rest of the year. Walsh had just three points this week against a solid Arizona Cardinals’ defense so don’t expect him to beat the odds the next two weeks. While Walsh is one of the best kickers in the NFL, play the matchups accordingly and find one that is a bit more tastier in Week 8.
Consider Dropping In: 10-team, 12-team and 14-team Leagues
Cut Them Loose Watch List: Greg Zuerlein (St. Louis Rams), Lawrence Tynes, Kai Forbath (Washington Redskins), Rob Bironas (Tennessee Titans)
Keep Them Cut: Dan Carpenter (Miami Dolphins), Rian Lindell (Buffalo Bills), Justin Medlock (Carolina Panthers), Justin Tucker (Baltimore Ravens)
