Cutting the Cord: Week 11

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. Here are the key players to cut or trade after Week 10:

*Roster Rate referencing the percentage of fantasy leagues where the player is rostered*


*15-18 roster spots*

Joshua Kelley

Why: The window is closing for Kelley to benefit from Austin Ekeler being out and Justin Jackson has also missed recent time. Kelley still cannot sniff quality touches, however, with Kalen Ballage being the biggest benefactor of late. Kelley is the bridesmaid but never the bride scenario and far too ambiguous for his 65% Roster Rate or shallow league viability.
