Mum’s the word on my Cowboys, we are in a bad state right now. In fact if the Cowboys were a horse they would have to be put down humanely, to put their fans out of their suffering. Now back to mum’s the word!
On another note all four of my fantasy football teams are doing well and in great position in their respective leagues.
5 MUST DROPS
Speaking of fantasy football, here are five players you MUST DROP in your league, if you still want to be competitive moving forward.
Jordan Howard, RB – Dolphins
Matt Breida was on this list last week and his neighbor in the running-back room joins him in Week 5.
Myles Gaskin is the clear starter in that backfield and Jordan Howard seems to be losing his role as the goal-line guy with each passing week. He’s gone from eight to five to three to two carries over the course of four weeks and is averaging just 4.9 half-PPR points per game, posting just .4 last week.
Chris Thompson, RB – Jaguars
The blueprint for Chris Thompson to succeed this season as the passing-down back in Jacksonville was there, but through four weeks they don’t seem to want to use him enough to be fantasy relevant. The eight-year veteran saw zero touches in Week 4, and only has 14 total so far in 2020.
If you’re in a PPR league and desire some pass-catching back goodness, you may want to let Thompson go and grab someone like Chase Edmonds or Nyheim Hines.
Jack Doyle, TE – Colts
The tight end landscape is a scary place after the top few tiers, but Jack Doyle is not the guy in 2020.
There was supposed to be magic with him and QB Philip Rivers but he’s being outplayed by Mo Alie-Cox. Even the often injured Trey Burton out-produced him this past week. Doyle is still on 11% of rosters as we head into Week 5, which speaks volumes. There are plenty of other tight ends with greater opportunities in their respective offenses like Dalton Schultz, Robert Tonyan and Logan Thomas.
JK Dobbins, RB – Ravens
Many of you drafted JK Dobbins as a “super sleeper” who is averaging a meager 3.75 rushes and 1.75 targets per game. He sits eighth in the Ravens offense in PPR points per touch. It’s time to jettison the rookie until next season when he will take over the lead back role as Mark Ingram heads into free agency.
Giovani Bernard, RB – Bengals
If you acquired Giovani Bernard off the waiver wire when reports of starting RB Joe Mixon chest injury surfaced over the weekend, it time to send him back into wire. Mixon appears to be healthy and now Bernard’s fantasy value isn’t worthy of a spot on a 10- or 12-team squad.
BACK IN THE HIGH LIFE
As we prepare to head into the lockdown again hopefully tonight will provide a silver lining for loyal Laker fans through out the Bahamas as our beloved Lakers capture their 17th NBA title tying the Boston Celtics fir must all time.
That will carry me through the weekend no matter what my bi polar Cowboys do!
We can about who should have won the MVP AD or LeBron next week!
