There were plenty of good things that happened in the NFL this Sunday. But the good always comes with the bad.
So, as you peruse the waiver wire for the top options entering Week 10, here are five players you should consider dropping to free up a roster spot.
Ryan Tannehill, QB, Miami Dolphins
Tannehill managed just 149 passing yards and one touchdown Sunday against the New York Jets. If he can’t get it done against one of the NFL’s worst pass defenses, we don’t like his chances on the road in Week 10 against the San Diego Chargers. There are plenty of better fantasy QBs out there.
Charcandrick West, RB, Kansas City Chiefs
So much for that roll of the dice. The Chiefs handed the keys to their backfield to West, and he sputtered in neutral, compiling just 39 yards on 13 carries. There’s a chance Spencer Ware returns in Week 10, but even if he doesn’t, West wasn’t effective enough to warrant a spot on your squad.
Antone Smith, RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
This is an easy call. The Bucs placed Smith on season-ending injured reserve Friday after the Bucs’ “Thursday Night Football” loss to the Atlanta Falcons, so there’s no use in having him on your roster.
Quincy Enunwa, WR, New York Jets
Jalin Marshall (not Brandon) led the Jets in receiving Sunday with 59 yards and a touchdown. That doesn’t bode well for Enunwa, who had just one catch for 25 yards and is fighting for targets in a passing offense that’s lousy to begin with. You’re better off looking outside New York for a wideout.
Sammie Coates, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers
Coates had a brutal day Sunday, failing to catch any of his five targets and dropping a potential touchdown in the end zone. The Steelers’ offense won’t be this bad every week, but Coates isn’t generating much trust in Pittsburgh, and this team has plenty of other weapons. He’s worth dropping if you need the roster spot.
