It is finally here; Week 14, the final week before your fantasy football playoffs. If you need a win, then the players below need to be dropped from your roster. The season is just about over, so now you need to rely on high-scoring players and not hold on to a backup in case of an injury. Also, don’t be afraid to drop someone like Chris Godwin just because you took him in the fifth round. Names don’t matter at this point. It is all based on who is producing.
Week 14 Players to drop.
Miles Sanders, Running Back, Carolina Panthers
I have Miles Sanders back on here because he is still rostered in about 40% of leagues across all platforms. Chuba Hubbard is the number one back in this offense and that is by a mile. In the Panther’s last game, Hubbard had 25 carries to Sanders eight. Hubbard also had 104 yards and two touchdowns. Also, the Panther’s next two games are the Saints and Falcons. Both of them are in the top 10 of the toughest defenses against the run game. So not only is Sanders losing the backfield but also has a tough schedule for the next two games. I’d drop him and let your opponent waste a roster spot on him.
Kareem Hunt, Running Back, Cleveland Browns
Kareem Hunt is still getting a decent amount of carries. The problem is, he is not producing with his carries. He is also not getting the red zone work that he was getting early in the season. The Browns aren’t playing their best football as all their quarterbacks are hurt. So, this just isn’t an offense I trust going forward. Hunt has yet to score more than 10 fantasy points since Week 8.
Chris Godwin, Wide Receiver, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
I mentioned Godwin before and now is the time to drop him. Mike Evans and Rachaad White are the firepower in this Buccaneers offense. Godwin got a lucky end-around rushing touchdown in his last game, but that was it. He didn’t bring in one reception. He also has yet to score over double-digits since Week 8. The Buccaneers also have two tough matchups going forward in the Falcons and Green Bay. Both are in the top 10 for the least amount of fantasy points given up to receivers per game
Jahan Dotson, Wide Receiver, Washington Commanders
Now that Curtis Samuel finally looks like he is fully healthy, it looks like Jahan Dotson’s fantasy season is over. Dotson was underwhelming this season as in PPR scoring he only went over 15 fantasy points just twice. In the two games, Samuel has 17 targets to Dotson’s 11. The Commanders are on a bye this week and then they come back to face off against the Rams for the first week of fantasy playoffs. Then the Jets the week after. Both teams are in the top 10 defenses against fantasy wide receivers this season.
Jerry Jeudy, Wide Receiver, Denver Broncos
The Broncos have been one of the hottest teams as of late, but during that run, it has been Courtland Sutton showing up. In their last six games, Jeudy has just one touchdown and Sutton has five. Jeudy’s top two high-scoring games in that stretch are 13 and 11.4 fantasy points in PPR scoring. While Sutton’s two are 19.6 and 17.3. It is clear Sutton is the stud in this offense and the one you want to be starting going into the fantasy playoffs. The Broncos also have one of the best fantasy playoff schedules for wide receivers in the Lions, Patriots, and Chargers.
