Keegan Murray, PF, Sacramento Kings (62.3% Owned ESPN)
Keegan Murray is shooting 7-for-29 in his last four games.
Worrying personal statline, but overall he's still impacting the Kings in a positive way.
Defensively he's processing the game so well. Plays like a true NBA veteran out there. pic.twitter.com/oTHUtQwk9J

The fourth overall pick in this past draft, Murray has struggled in his first few weeks. Shooting under 40 percent from the field and 31 percent from 3 is a very lackluster level of play. Rookie struggles are commonplace, but for redraft owners, this is not encouraging, and it makes him droppable. There is still time to turn things around, but fantasy owners cannot afford to wait forever.
There is nothing wrong with cutting bait and finding better options on the waiver wire.
Murray may garner some more interest in category leagues, where his 10-rebound game yesterday could be a sign of things to come. For the most part, though, he simply lacks value across the board and is not worth holding onto unless you are in a dynasty/keeper league.
Gary Trent Jr, SG, Toronto Raptors (64.5% owned)

Trent was coming off of a career year where he shot over 38 percent from three and scored 18.3 points per game. So far this season, his numbers are down across the board in just about every major category. His three-point and free-throw percentages have taken shocking falls, and he is being less active on the defensive end.
With the Raptors' offense struggling as a whole, Trent is definitely feeling the pressure to step up and carry the offense. He is still a key component of the team, but we are talking fantasy basketball and not the real world. Trent does not currently do enough to warrant being kept by owners. He is a drop, but keep an eye out for the hot streaks he likes to go on. He may be an add later down the road.
Ayo Dosunmu, PG/SG, Chicago Bulls (20.1% Owned)

After emerging as a key piece of the Bulls rotation last season, Dosunmu has regressed hard despite taking more shot attempts per game. He doesn't take any free throws and is not much of a facilitator or rebounder. A scoring guard who doesn't score is not of much value in fantasy basketball.
With Zach Lavine, DeMar DeRozan, and Nikola Vucevic ahead of him on the totem pole, it will be tough for Dosunmu to really insert himself as a scoring threat. He is an easy drop at this point, only worth grabbing if there is an injury in the Chicago backcourt.
