Each week we will look at who might be clogging up a roster spot on your dynasty squads. Here are three players in deeper formats to part ways with.
If for some reason you have continued to hold onto Anderson, it’s time to let go. It was a good run and we all know how valuable he was down the stretch last year. In fact, it is likely he was a league winner in 2018 if you scooped him off waivers for your Week 16 matchup. However, that doesn’t mean he has a place on a competitive dynasty roster.
Long since cut by the Detroit Lions, the same team who rode the corpse of LeGarrette Blount into the ground last year, Anderson is a better Twitter follow than fantasy running back at this point. Even if he would sign with someone, the odds of him catching lightning in a bottle again are slim. There are a myriad of high upside rookie and second-year running backs worth rostering over him (Mark Walton, anyone?) so do yourself a favor and cut bait.
I was a Taywan Truther but after his trade to Cleveland, the dream appears to be dead. It’s been a precipitous fall for the former 3rd Round pick as his stock has plummeted despite leaving Tennessee and one of the league’s most inept offenses. He has been targeted just once in three games so far this year as he is buried on the depth chart and has been a non-factor outside of some special teams work. Taylor still oozes talent but at some point we have to make roster decisions on the back end that provide us with more potential. Someone like the Cardinals Trent Sherfield would fit that bill.
Rosen is a tough drop because it is nearly impossible to gauge where his value could be if he played in an offense with actual NFL players. If you are still on the Rosen Bandwagon, however, his 53% completion percentage and virtual lack of any kind of weekly floor should be reason enough to jump off. The fact that he is having a hard time fending off Ryan Fitzpatrick is just icing on the cake.
In short, there are probably 30+ better options at quarterback for your dynasty roster. Given the relative lack of separation between those ranked in the 20-30 range it is hard to make a case for keeping Rosen around. I would be fine dropping him for someone like Jarrett Stidham or even Ryan Finley since it looks like the Bengals might go into evaluation mode soon.
