Fantasy Football Week 9 Cut List: See Ya, Elijah Moore, Drake London!

Make some much-needed room on your roster this week.

With two of his three best fantasy performances this season during the last two weeks, you can put the scissors away for Allen Robinson (for now), who looks to be gradually building chemistry with Matthew Stafford. Kyle Pitts also heard he was on the Week 8 Cut List and decided to wake up, securing five of nine targets for 80 yards and a touchdown.

And so continues the tough judgment calls: whose bad outings deserve a drop, and whose are just a blip? Without further ado, let’s dive into some deserved drop candidates.

Roster percentages are, Yahoo, and ESPN

DAVANTE ADAMS (100%, 100%, 100%)

After a measly three yards on one catch—

…alright, I’m sorry. Sorry about that. JUST KIDDING.

ELIJAH MOORE (47.2%, 40%, 49%)

Fortunately, we’ll know by 4pm ET on Tuesday if Moore is still a Jet. If he is, it’s hard to fathom how he gets back into the fantasy starter conversation, this year anyway.

The man only saw one target against the Patriots this week and lost snaps to another receiver who wanted out of New York, Denzel Mims.

REPEAT ENTRY: DRAKE LONDON (87.6%, 75%, 83%)

In a shootout versus the Panthers, Drake London still couldn’t warrant enough volume to put him in the FLEX conversation. He only saw five targets and was the week’s WR52 in half-PPR. A late-season surge is getting harder to imagine for the rookie.

NOAH FANT (18.2%, 10%, 36%)

A slight uptick in playing time hasn’t mattered for Noah Fant. With his last two games being the first ones he’s seen over a 70% target share, he’s only had three receptions on five targets for 26 scoreless yards. The playing time increase is the only reason I won’t consider this his final time on the Cut List.

HUNTER HENRY (26.2%, 39%, 33%)

Hunter Henry’s floor is a smidge above zero, and the only games he hasn’t produced at his floor are Weeks 5 and 6. That’s hard to trust for streaming, let alone taking up a roster spot. The money the Pats dropped to bring in him and Jonnu Smith before last season aren’t equalling fantasy starter consideration for either of them this year.


MARVIN JONES (1.8%, 5%, 24%)

Marvin Jones sat out Week 6 due to a hamstring injury. He never saw less than an 81% snap share before then. But, since his return, he’s seen only 56 and 54%, and his production reflects that, with just four catches for 57 scoreless yards in that span.

Perhaps the hamstring issue is still lingering, but it’s been hard enough to trust him as a FLEX already, even though the crowd in ESPN leagues still seem to be holding out some hope.
