Fantasy Football Players to Drop Heading Into Week 5

If you’re like me, you’re changing half your fantasy football roster yet again this week after another pathetic performance by a bunch of guys who were “supposed” to find their grooves. Here are five players you need to drop before Week 5:

Brandon Myers is a talented tight end who seemed like a perfect fit with the New York Giants this season, but he hasn’t done much after the G-Men discovered they’re awful. He’ll be blocking for the rest of the year, so he’s worthless to fantasy owners.

Ryan Broyles was supposed to break out with Nate Burleson sidelined, but that didn’t happen. He laid an egg in fantasy land in Week 5 despite the Detroit Lions scoring 40 points, which means he should be dropped in all formats.

Eddie Royal may have scored five touchdowns in the first two games this year, but he hasn’t had more than three catches in four of them and hasn’t scored more than four fantasy points since Week 2. He’s nothing more than a flash in the pan.

Donnie Avery was another one-hit wonder as he fell back to being fantasy-irrelevant this week after a big game against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 3. Drop him and forget him.

Ahmad Bradshaw‘s fantasy value has been up and down all seasons after he joined the Indianapolis Colts and all the injuries they’ve suffered, plus the Trent Richardson trade. But Bradshaw missed Indy’s demolition of the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 5, which saw 20 carries for Richardson. Put simply, Bradshaw is done as a fantasy-relevant running back.
