2020-21 Fantasy Basketball Week 4 Drop List

on

Welcome fantasy friends to the 2020-21 Fantasy Basketball Week 4 Drop List. As I hope everyone knows by now, the NBA season is starting to get a wee bit wonky. There are some teams that can’t even put a full team on the court.

Yeah! I’m looking at you Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers. With the players getting Covid and games now getting canceled, fantasy basketball has been quite the challenge this year.

Covid isn’t the only thing troubling us, injuries have been happening quite often this year and I don’t think it will be slowing down anytime soon.

These problems are making the drop list difficult but I will prevail and continue steering all of you in the right direction, in terms of dropping players at least.

I will list the players to drop and players that are in the danger zone, as usual. If you are Lou Williams you might be living in the danger zone all year. So without further ado, welcome to the 2020-21 Fantasy Basketball Week 4 Drop List.

*Note: Do not drop your star players because of Covid*

DeMarcus Cousins, PF/C, Houston Rockets (56% rostered Yahoo)

Why is Cousins rostered so high? To be honest, I don’t understand why he is even more than 50%. DeMarcus Cousins is averaging 12.7 minutes a game with 5.8 points and 5.5 rebounds.

It has to be name value that has gotten him this high of a roster percentage because he has done nothing.

As for the rest of the year, I don’t think it is going to change much either. If you are holding out hope for the old Boogie you will be sorely mistaken. Drop him now and don’t regret it.

Kyle Kuzma, SF/PF, Los Angeles Lakers (42% rostered Yahoo)

This was supposed to be the year that Kyle Kuzma was going to “breakout” but as of right now there is nothing pointing towards a breakout year from him. Everything is down for him right now compared to last year, including points and shots attempted.

As of right now, Kuzma is averaging 25.5 minutes per game with 10.8 points, 3.8 rebounds, and only 1.2 assists. He doesn’t block or steal the ball, so if you are in category leagues he isn’t providing you much help. I hate to say it but you can drop Kyle Kuzma.

Paul Millsap, PF/C, Denver Nuggets (40% rostered Yahoo)

I feel like this is cheating for putting Millsap on here because Michael Porter coming back is going to ruin the value of Milsap but I’m going to do it anyway. Paul Millsap has been playing fine, averaging 24.2 minutes with 10.9 points on 50% shooting.

But unfortunately, he’s notching only 4.2 rebounds a game. This is fine for now but it will all come to a screeching halt once MPJ comes back. You can drop Millsap and not feel bad about it.

Josh Jackson, SG/SF, Detroit Pistons (22% rostered Yahoo)

If you haven’t dropped him yet, please do it now. Josh Jackson started off pretty well but as we all expected he has fallen back to earth. Before he missed two games, Jackson had five games over 10+ points including a 19 point game and a 27 point game. He was looking like a steal on the waiver wire.

Since the two inactive games, Jackson has yet to even go above five points in a game. His minutes have gone down drastically, it could be because they are working him back into game form but it could be because he is back to his old self.

Josh Jackson is back to shooting under 40%. In fact, in his last two games, he is shooting a putrid 12% from the field. Feel safe in dropping him and enjoy what he did for you at the start of the season.

Danger Zone

It looks like Devonte’ Graham has found his way out of the danger zone for now. He is averaging 36 minutes with 12.3 points, 5 rebounds, and 7.3 assists in his last three games. I am going to keep Lou Williams in here because he hasn’t been impressive this year. There will be a few new faces too so don’t worry.

Lou Williams, SG, Los Angeles Clippers (54% rostered Yahoo)

Right when you think about dropping Lou Williams he goes and drops a 21-point-game in 23 minutes. Sweet Lou also added four assists and three steals, that is his best game since December 29th.

He has only reached 20+ points twice now and has only gone over 10+ shots in a game three times. Everything is down significantly compared to his last few years, specifically the PPG, which has gone from 18 points a game to 10. Since he doesn’t fill out the rest of the stat sheet, it would be best to seriously consider dropping him.

Miles Bridges, SF/PF, Charlotte Hornets (49% rostered Yahoo)

Another weird name to have on here, but it’s justified. Miles Bridges currently sits at 49% owned and I have a feeling that is only because he started off the season very well. Miles started off the season with three games over 10+ points, including a game where he had 20 points and 16 rebounds. Since then he hasn’t done anything except for one other 20 point game.

In his last six games, he has scored under 10 points in all of them except for one. He has come nowhere near 10+ rebounds either since that game and he doesn’t provide assists. This is the perfect recipe for a dropped player, but I’m going to hold off one more week to see if he can change my mind.

James Wiseman, C, Golden State Warriors (82% rostered Yahoo)

I didn’t think I would be putting James Wiseman’s name on here but here we are. Wiseman being on the list is totally justifiable and I’m going to tell you why.

In his last five games, he is only averaging 17.8 minutes, 9.8 points, and 5.3 rebounds a game. Yeah, you saw that correctly, only 5.3 rebounds a game in his last five. That will not get it done for a center in Fantasy Basketball.

He is currently on a roster in 82% of Yahoo! leagues and that is way too high for him. He is in the danger zone and not on the drop list because I think his minutes will increase as he gets more comfortable in the NBA.



That should do it for the 2020-21 Fantasy Basketball Week 4 Drop List. I will see you all again next week for Week 5 of the NBA season.
