Who has to fall to make room for the wire pickups for the waiver

For Yahoo Sports

Assessing who should drop in fantasy leagues and when to pull that trigger is no easy feat, especially after only two weeks of play. However, we need to evolve and make improvements to the roster, especially after some soul-shattering shows in Week 2.

Here are my recommendations for some guys to give up before the third week, or at least consider moving forward. You won’t find any monster names here yet because two weeks isn’t enough time to save a high draft pick, but there will be more notable names in the coming weeks. If you are looking for players to hideI’ve got you covered there, too.

Cole Kumit, TE – Bears (68 percent listed by Yahoo)

Some might say stick to Cole Quit for another week, but I’ve seen enough. Sure, he might come back strong to lead all the TEs in everything, but the way the Chicago attack looks in two weeks, it’s not very likely. Kumit has only two goals so far, and has failed to capture either ball.

The Bears attempted the fewest passes in the NFL in the first two weeks (28), and it appears Kmet isn’t much of a part of any of their plan this season. There’s roughly 70% of you rolling with Kmet in at least one league (me included), but there’s still plenty of time to get over the waiver wire and grab some good from a player like Logan Thomas or Hayden Hurst.

Donovan Peoples-Jones, WR brown (20% on the list)

While the DPJ saw 11 balls in its first week, making it a common concession, its use fell to only one goal – which it was unable to secure – last week against the Jets. As the season approached, there were definitely doubts about the ability of this passing offense to support anyone for fanciful purposes outside of Amari Cooper, and it was even a question mark.

Our fears appear to be valid because Peoples-Jones is currently WR73 overall, fifth in half of the PPR points in the Browns attack, and even behind Kicker Kid York’s in fantasy points so far. He might go later in the season after Jacobi Brissett’s job is over, but the DPJ isn’t worth holding on to the 20% of Yahoo managers currently on the Cleveland WR roster.

Noah Fant, TE Seahawks (13% listed)

Honestly, insulting Seattle is not very good. On top of being in a unit that is far from productive, Noah Fant’s role in Seahawk’s crime is commission based and it’s also not great for business. Fant has six goals through two to five contests from Will Dissley, and scored less than half as fantasy points as fellow TE through both games.

I know the TE locker looks really bare, but send Fant to the waiver wire for a player in a better position like the one I mentioned above or even Evan Engram.

Kenny Goladay, WR Giants (14% are on the list)

The former Lion has only two goals per season, and none from his Week 2 match against the Panthers, where he played only twice. Kenny Goladay reportedly cleaned out his wardrobe and went before the media entered the locker room on Sunday.

The 28-year-old appears to have been surpassed by Richie James and David Sales in the WR Giants’ pick-up standings, and with the writing on the wall, Golladay doesn’t deserve a spot on the list at this point, no matter how big the league is.

Kenyan Drake, right-back Crows (16% listed)

The 2022 Kenyan Drake experience has ended. He had to work as the Ravens RB1 against Miami with JK Dobbins still out but he ceded the work to both Mike Davis and Justice Hill, with none of them adding much to his Week 2 fantasy rosters.

The upside is nonexistent for Drake at this point as long as Baltimore continues to throw in more than it has been in two weeks, plus Dobbins’ return is imminent. The 28-year-old is currently 16% of Yahoo’s rosters and should be replaced by RB with greater potential like Zack Moss or Raheem Mostert.
