Grimes has seen increased playing time for the Knicks this year, and while he started out hot, his numbers have dwindled since. While his overall numbers for the year are actually quite good (37% from three, 45% from the field) he does not touch the ball enough in games to make a significant impact.
Bol Bol, PF/C, Orlando Magic (46.5% owned)

Bol was taking the league by storm early on in the season but has cooled off since due to illnesses and injury. While he is now back and healthy, the rest of the Orlando frontcourt will be joining in having a clean bill of health.
Often injured Jonathan Isaac is nearing his return, and his elite defense has been sorely missed. With Wendell Carter and Paolo Banchero having spots in the lineup secured already, it leaves little room for Bol to carve out a role except on the bench.
De'Anthony Melton, PG/SG, Philadelphia 76ers (34.5% owned)

Melton has been in the starting lineup for this Philly team and is quite frankly just taking up space. Brought in to be a tertiary scorer and ball handler, Melton hasn't scored more than 10 points since January 5th.
While his percentages are up to par (38% from three) he isn't doing much with the playing time he has. It would not be a surprise to see Tyrese Maxey reclaim the starting role from him at some point. Melton's scoring numbers simply are not enough to keep him on fantasy rosters, especially since his rebound and assist numbers are low to nonexistent.
If for some reason you haven't cut him yet, do it now.
