With the playoffs only a handful of weeks away, we’re reaching the home stretch. If you’re in a good position to make the playoffs, great job! But don’t get complacent. Keep stacking high upside players with good playoff schedules.

If your playoff hopes are hanging on by a thread, you may have to make considerable sacrifices in order to win the week. Drop that handcuff or high-upside rookie for a good streaming defense or quarterback if you have to. Desperate times call for desperate measures.

Quarterbacks

Jared Goff, Los Angeles Rams

Up to this point in his career, Goff has been like a homeless man’s version of Drew Brees. Not so much in playstyle or anything like that, but Goff is consistently horrible on the road compared to when playing at home. This season he is averaging 13.04 fantasy points in away games compared to 14.95 points in home games (20.23 if you remove his Week 6 stinker vs the Niners).

He was beyond awful in Week 10, throwing for 243 yards and two interceptions while fumbling three times, losing one. Going forward, he has home matchups with the Bears and Ravens, then @ Arizona in Week 13, vs Seattle in Week 14, before ending @ Dallas and @ San Francisco in Week 16. He’s not a quarterback to trust for the stretch run.

Philip Rivers, Los Angeles Chargers

The #15 fantasy quarterback on the season, Rivers has many children as top-10 fantasy finishes in his career. But it looks like this year is shaping up to be one where he finishes outside of QB1 range. He came out hot with three 19+ fantasy point performances in his first four games. Since then, he’s averaged 11.69 points over his last six games and hasn’t topped 12 points in his last three.

Unable to bust out in a cake matchup against the Oakland Raiders, it’s fair to say no matter what the matchup, Rivers is going to struggle. You’d think he’d actually be doing better with the return of Melvin Gordon, Mike Williams, and Hunter Henry. However, the losses of left tackle Russell Okung and center Mike Pouncey (out for the season) are arguably more difficult to overcome for the cement-footed Rivers. His next few weeks are home vs KC, Bye, @DEN, @JAX, vs MIN, before Week 16 at home vs the Raiders again. He doesn’t look start-able in any of those games.

Running Backs

Frank Gore, Buffalo Bills

Predictably, the 36-year-old Gore is slowing down as the season continues. After a strong first half of the season, he’s averaged just 2.44 YPC in his last three games and played an average of 32% of snaps. Even if Gore is getting nominal carries (including on the goal line), this is Devin Singletary‘s backfield.

Unless Singletary goes down again, it’s safe to drop Gore as he offers little upside for the stretch run.

Chase Edmonds, Arizona Cardinals

As Kenyan Drake continues to impress, it looks more and more like Edmond’s three-week stretch of 63.8 fantasy points in Weeks 5-7 were a flash in the pan. He’s a talented back, but when he gets back he will likely be in a three-way timeshare with Drake and David Johnson.

Out of these three, Edmonds is clearly the lesser option and unless one of the guys ahead of him gets hurt, is droppable.

Wide Receivers

Robby Anderson, New York Jets

Anderson has had a hugely disappointing season, but it honestly probably isn’t even his fault. Between Darnold having mono, coming back and playing horribly, and the trade rumors, Anderson has not been put in a position to succeed. Hence, he is the #69 WR in standard format and doesn’t seem ripe for a bounce-back any time soon.

The connection with Darnold simply isn’t there. In the last four games, he has eight catches on 21 targets for 94 yards. Those wouldn’t be impressive yards-per-carry numbers for a running back. Darnold is content to check-down all day to Le’Veon Bell and Jamison Crowder, and Anderson is the odd man out.

Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Green Bay Packers

It’s over for the Marquez Valdes-Scantling show as Devante Adams is back from injury and the Packers slowly trending towards a run-based offense. Obviously, Aaron Rodgers‘ presence lends fantasy value to any pass-catchers in the offense, but Valdes-Scantling has been a non-factor in three straight weeks.

That being said, we should have seen this coming. Valdes-Scantling was never heavily targeted, with only 42 targets on the season. In his 20.30 point outburst in Week 7 against the Raiders, he did his damage on just three targets.

Over his last three weeks, he’s caught one out of five targets for four yards. Drop him.

Tight Ends

Chris Herndon, New York Jets

Herndon made his long-awaited debut in Week 10 with one catch for seven yards. He is promptly hitting the IR with a broken rib. Lesson learned: the Jets won’t let us have nice things.
