Cut’em or Keep’em Week 11
1Nelson Agholor, (PHI) 65.3% owned
Nelson Agholor crept into the top of WR rankings for a short period of time after week seven. Since then his production has dropped significantly. The former USC WR recorded five receptions and 56 yards on seven in the two weeks prior to his week ten bye week. In comparison, in the two weeks prior, he had 100 yards and two touchdowns. Clearly, Agholor’s productions is extremely contingent on his red zone usage. There isn’t a reason why Agholor’s role in the offense should change, so keep him on your roster. Verdict: Keep
2CJ Anderson, (DEN) 81.4% owned
CJ Anderson is caught up in an RBBC within one of the worst offenses in the NFL. Anderson hasn’t had over 20 carries since week four and only has one touchdown on the year. Though he doesn’t always have the volume a fantasy owner would want, he is averaging 4.3 YPC this season which is beyond satisfactory. Another plus is that Anderson has the 7th easiest remaining schedule among all RBs. Verdict: Keep
3Cameron Brate, (TAM) 85.3% owned
Cameron Brate is the #6 TE in fantasy football right now. I don’t think he’ll score 10+ points in more than one game for the rest of the year. The past two weeks he has only three targets. That share is extremely small. Hell, three receptions in one game is an unimpressive performance. Rookie OJ Howard is biting at his heels and has out-snapped Brate the past two weeks. I still believe that keeping him is a wise move, but sell high if possible. Verdict: Keep
4Aaron Jones, (GB) 66.2% owned
Once a waiver wire darling, Aaron Jones’ stock has dropped rapidly over the past week. Prior to his knee injury last week, Coach Mike Montgomery stated that Jones would be splitting carries with veteran RB Ty Montgomery. On Sunday, Jones suffered an MCL sprain which knocked him out for the rest of the game. The timetable for Jones’ return is 3-6 weeks, meaning the earliest he could play would be week 14. Even if he did return, there is no guarantee he would be a key part of the backfield, much less a starter. Drop Jones. Verdict: Cut
