2022 Fantasy Football Week 15 Drop List

by Mike Bonni
Why You Should Not Handcuff with Kareem Hunt or Tony Pollard

Welcome to the 2022 Fantasy Football Week 15 Drop List.

The playoffs are here. Now is the time to get your lineups in shape. This means dropping those players who aren't performing and snatching up those players/defenses with good matchups.

*Be sure to check the waiver wire article here at F6P.

Now that we are getting down to the end, the drop list is getting (mighty) slim. We still have a few players that got to go, so be sure to continue reading the 2022 Fantasy Football Week 15 Drop List.

Former Star Gets The Boot

Kareem Hunt, RB, Cleveland Browns - 76.7%

What a fall from grace this has been for Kareem Hunt. He is becoming useless in this Browns' offense. There is good news (barely), and a lot of bad news.

The good news can go first. Since Watson took over, Kareem Hunt is averaging 6 fantasy points (6.5 carries, and 3.5 targets). You may say this is not good news, but when I go through the bad news you will see why.

In 2022, Hunt has only had three games (3/10) where he went over 10 fantasy points. He hasn't seen a 50% snap share since Week 1. In fact, his snap count continues to go down.

Since the bye week (Week 9), Hunt is averaging a 39.4% snap count. He has been under 10 carries each game since then (5 games) and is only averaging 2.2 targets during this time.

Drop him with no remorse.

Can't Be Trusted

Marquez Valdes-Scantling, WR, Kansas City Chiefs - 50.8%

Marquez Valdes-Scantling can't be trusted. In 13 games played, Scantling has failed to score 10+ fantasy points ten times. Since the Chiefs' bye week, MVS is sitting at WR58 (averaging 7.6 points/game).

It gets worse. Scantling's snap counts have been going down every game. In the past five games, his snap count has gone from 84% (Week 10) to 51% (Week 14).

Now is the time to drop Marquez Valdes-Scantling. I would suggest picking up Donovan Peoples-Jones, Darius Slayton, or Elijah Moore.

Chase Claypool, WR, Chicago Bears - 52.9%

Once again, I will be mentioning Chase Claypool. There is good news on the Claypool front. His snap count is increasing (42% to 63%), and Claypool's targets are increasing as well (3 to 6).

Unfortunately, we have bad news. The Chicago Bears have struggled to keep wide receivers fantasy relevant. That will continue for the rest of 2022. Since joining the Bears, Claypool is WR95. He has yet to go over 10 fantasy points.

There are only three players you want to play in this offense (Justin Fields, David Montgomery, and Cole Kmet).

Honorable Mention

Michael Carter, RB, New York Jets - 78.9%

I'm just going to put this bluntly, Michael Carter has been terrible this year. But, he finds himself in the honorable mention category because I still think he has a role (a small one).

In Week 14, Carter ran the ball five times for five yards and caught three of six targets for 15 yards (4 fantasy points). He was out-carried (17 to 5), out-touched (19 to 8), and gained fewer yards than Zonovan Knight (71 to 17). The only good news is that Michael Carter out-snapped Zonovan Knight 50% to 47%.

In other bad news, Carter has had three straight games under 5 fantasy points. Since the Jets' bye week (Week 10), he is RB68 (averaging 3.8 fantasy points).

Going into the playoffs, you don't need players like this. Everyone thought Carter would go bonkers with Breece Hall out, but that has not happened. Not even close. Drop him now.

*Please drop Damien Harris (Snap count reaching new lows; 22% last two games healthy) and James Robinson (Non-factor in Jets' backfield). They are often injured (both) and not part of the offense anymore (Robinson).

That should do it for the 2022 Fantasy Football Week 15 Drop List.
