2023 Fantasy Football Week 7 Drop List

2023 Fantasy Football Week 7 Drop List

Chopping-block Tuesday! We're sharpened and ready to go for the 2023 Fantasy Football Week 7 Drop List.

Bye weeks are in full swing now. We're all having to make space on our benches for fill-ins. It's important to be a bit ruthless, now, when it comes to who you hang onto and who you drop.

This week we've got a couple tight ends (why are people rostering two tight ends?) and a wide receiver we're sad to see go. But it's gotta happen.

Let's get to it.

Hunter Henry, TE, New England Patriots

After beginning the season with two games with 16+ points, Fantasy managers were licking their lips at the potential of a Hunter Henry resurgence. As it would turn out: not so.

He doesn't even have a total of 16 points in the four weeks since. We all know the Patriots offense is a pretty egregious mess right now. And Mac Jones simply isn't getting the ball to Henry. Doesn't help that Henry's also dealing with a bit of a nagging ankle injury.

Tight end is a tough position, so I can see folks in deeper leagues wanting to hold on and potentially even starting Henry weekly. But I'd look for streaming options over him right now.

Dalton Kincaid, TE, Buffalo Bills

Kincaid, as it would seem, is the odd man out from this years much-ballyhooed rookie tight end class. Sam LaPorta is lighting it up. Luke Musgrave is a legitimate fixture in the Packers offense. Kincaid, even when he's not injured, isn't really involved in Buffalo's offense.

Which, by the way, has looked off for a few weeks now. So maybe there's a case to be made that once Buffalo rights the ship, Kincaid could be a beneficiary. But, as seen above, Quinton Morris (who?) has a touchdown, and Kincaid does not.

Keeping a backup TE—an unproven rookie one, no less—on your bench is rarely worth it to begin with. Such is the case with Kincaid. Drop him.

Jahan Dotson, WR, Washington Commanders

This one hurts. We all wanted Dotson to have a second-year breakout with rookie quarterback Sam Howell. Surely, we thought, Carson Wentz and Taylor Heinicke were the problems re. Dotson's volume and efficiency.

But other than his big touchdown catch against the Eagles, it just simply hasn't happened. As you can see above, his yards per route run are paltry at best. And it's translated to below-replacement Fantasy production. He's only scored double-digit points once.

I can see a world where you want to hold onto him on your bench. A second-half breakout is entirely possible. But I'm dropping him.
