Cutting the Cord: Week 15 - Footballguys

Breaking down the key players to drop or trade to optimize fantasy football rosters

Much of fantasy football in-season owner strategy centers around which players to pick up from the waiver wire or to target in the trade market. However, roster spots are a premium resource. Cutting a player - or adding them to a trade - opens a roster spot for a key waiver wire addition or flexibility to keep a currently injured player through a missed game or two.

With the playoffs in full swing for fantasy football leagues, many bench spots (outside of dynasty leagues) are about utility for the next week or two. This means adding an additional kicker or defense if there is an optimal matchup in an upcoming game or insulating from injury with a key backup or handcuff at the skill positions.


Jameis Winston, Ryan Tannehill

Why: Both have rough finishing schedules to count on them in lineups for redraft formats and shallow leagues (excluding superflex premium). Winston gets Baltimore this week and Dallas in Week 16 is not much better. Tannehill has Minnesota and Jacksonville for the two-week finish. Winston is a hold in dynasty formats of decent size, but Tannehill is closer to the cut line in start-1QB dynasty formats for an offseason stash elsewhere (probably running back).
