We've reached chopping-block Tuesday for the tenth time here at F6P. Who's feeling the knife today on the 2023 Fantasy Football Week 10 Drop List?
I'll tell you who's dangerously close to being an honorable mention here: Bijan Robinson. What the heck is going on in Atlanta? He's seeing less than 50% of the rushing attempts there. It's borderline egregious.
But we're not here to overreact that much today. We will, however, address two shameful zero-point performances in Week 9.
Let's get to it.

Allen Lazard, WR, New York Jets

Monday Night Football really exposed all of Allen Lazard's struggles on the Jets, didn't it? Plenty of pre-snap penalties, a few drops, and frustration coming out on the field.
Troy Aikman said it best when he said this is a bad offense with a great defense. Wilson is too often under pressure and checking down to his third-and-fourth reads, like Tyler Conklin and C.J. Uzomah. He can barely support superstar Garrett Wilson as a Fantasy asset.
What reason do we have to believe that Lazard is worth a roster spot? We don't.
Justice Hill, RB, Baltimore Ravens
Something’s clearly wrong between Lamar Jackson & Justice Hill at the mesh point.

Gus Edwards remains one of the most underrated running backs in all of Fantasy. Keaton Mitchell lit up the preseason and now appears to have earned himself an increased role in the Ravens's running attack.
That leaves Hill as the odd man out. He will catch a few passes from Lamar here and there—sure. And he's certainly got value if Mitchell—who has shown a bit of an injury-prone spell already—goes down.
But Hill is not really a replacement-value back right now. I'd drop him for Mitchell if I could.
Gabriel Davis, WR, Buffalo Bills
Buffalo #Bills WR Gabe Davis average stats in his last 4 road games:

Telling, isn't it, that Dalton Kincaid has been the star of this Bills offense as its struggled to find consistency? And that Gabe Davis posted a fat goose egg against the Bengals on Sunday?
If anything, it feels like Allen can only get the ball Davis's way by forcing it. Neither is Allen getting lucky when he does so and nor does Davis make enough contested catches for this to result in anything but disaster. See the disastrous pick from Sunday Night Football.
Davis still has moderately impressive air yardage, and is still on an offense that, when clicking, is one of the most explosive in the league. But he's neither seeing nor catching much of the ball. He's droppable.
Michael Thomas, WR, New Orleans Saints
It's just not going to happen with Thomas, is it? That ignominious offseason during which he had a nagging ankle injury snafu with the Saints organization (as well as, I believe, behavioral issues in training camp) was the death knell on his tenure as a Fantasy asset.
The Saints offense was struggling during the first few weeks of the season; it was during that time that Michael Thomas might have been the primary beneficiary. But, as they've rounded into better form, they've done so via the return of Alvin Kamara in the passing game, an emphasis on utilizing Taysom Hill, and using Rashid Shaheed to stretch the field.
Which is to say: Thomas's goose egg in Week 10 is more a sign of things as they are and things to come than it is an anomaly.
I'm fine if you want to drop him to the waiver wire. He was always a longshot.
