Fantasy Football Week 4 Cut List: Hate Cut Justin Fields

You'll feel better after cutting these guys.

DeVante Parker might have used last week’s cut list as bulletin board material after going 5-156-0 against the Ravens. Outside of the cut list, I wonder how much Jakobi Meyers‘ absence had to do with that. Robert Woods saw FLEX relevance against the Raiders, though it also coincided with Treylon Burks disappearing.

With the season still so young, you don’t want to drop a player just for them to produce right after you get rid of them, then get picked up by a league mate later and produce for them. But, the players on this list are making it extremely hard to justify that fear.

Roster percentages are, Yahoo, and ESPN

JUSTIN FIELDS (47.6%, 52%, 37%)

With Matt Nagy out of Chicago, hope sprang out of the possibility of how well Fields could mesh with new OC Luke Getsy.

Unfortunately, a slow start got even slower in Week 3 versus the Texans. Depending on your league’s scoring system, you may have been better off leaving your QB slot empty than playing Fields.

Maybe hope should only spring eternal in dynasty leagues.

JULIO JONES (57.7%, 61%, 71%)

Julio Jones has a partially torn PCL. Tom Brady might be able to win a Super Bowl with an injury like that, but for Julio, this feels like a dagger for a player who was playing a WR3 role and one who’s already had enough trouble staying on the field the last few years. Add Cole Beasley into Tampa’s WR room and Julio might now be fifth or sixth in the pecking order when everyone is active.

RANDALL COBB (3.5%, 3%, 4%)

With no more than three targets in any game so far, I think it’s safe to say the magic isn’t coming back between Randall Cobb and Aaron Rodgers — for those of you still hanging on to past glories. The results were the same this week even after Sammy Watkins was put on IR and Christian Watson was inactive. It was rookie receiver Romeo Doubs who made play after play.

ALBERT OKWUEGBUNAM (15.1%, 43%, 21%)

The Broncos offense is having a hard time finding its rhythm, and in the meantime, Albert O has seen only one reception on four targets over the last two weeks. This is in an offense where he’s very likely no higher than Russell Wilson’s fourth option anyway. There has to be a higher upside option to chase on the Week 4 waiver wire (now watch him go full David Njoku on me next week).

*WATCH AND SEE* NOAH BROWN (10.2%, 19%, 12%)

Michael Gallup might sit another week, but one should expect the Cowboys’ WR2 to return by Week 4. Relegating Noah Brown to a WR3 role may not leave him enough of a role for fantasy relevance, even after Dak Prescott returns.
