Fantasy Football Players to Drop Heading Into Week 8

Seven weeks of fantasy football have taught us yet another valuable lesson…ok, the same old valuable lesson: lightning is rarely caught in a bottle. Here are several players you should kick to the curb before Week 8:

Bilal Powell was rudely removed from the top of the New York Jets‘ depth chart as Chris Ivory carried the rock 34 times in a New York win. In other words, Powell is toast.

Willis McGahee was supposed to set the woods on fire for the Cleveland Browns, but he has only put up more than four fantasy points in a game once since signing with the Browns and now he’s losing touches to Chris Ogbonnaya. It’s time to give up on him.

Nate Washington was still held onto by fantasy owners hoping he’d bounce back once Jake Locker returned from injury. Well, Locker threw for almost 330 yards in Week 7 and Washington caught three balls. He’s done.

Andre Ellington was the hot name off the waiver wire last week, but then fell flat on his face in Week 7. He’s a one-week wonder on an overrated team.

And finally, if you owned Reggie Wayne, Jay Cutler, Doug Martin or Sam Bradford, go ahead and click the drop button. You gotta move on, man. You gotta move on.
