List management is the most crucial task of the season for fantasy football players. Just as important as adding the right players is knowing when the players have to leave. Which players are on our week 10 fantasy football cup roster?
Fantastic 10 Week Cut List | Quarterbacks
Let’s go position by position and locate the players who no longer need to be on your fantasy roster. What fantastic quarterbacks are on the Week 10 cut list?
Trevor Lawrence, Jacksonville Jaguars
Interestingly, Trevor Lawrence is listed on 38% of Yahoo teams. He failed to hit double-digit fantasy points in three starts, and he only hit 20 fantasy points in two.
Lawrence hasn’t thrown multiple touchdowns in a single game since week one. He has more multi-steal games than multi-score outings. Your random fun stat of the week: Lawrence has more games with exactly 118 passing yards (2) than multiple touchdown passes (1). He wouldn’t even be a recommended streamer in favorable matches. Forget Lawrence.
The following fantastic running backs are on the Week 10 cut list. While not all of them are completely unattractive to fantasy, not all of them are worth hanging onto.
Kenneth Gainwell, Philadelphia Eagles
Day 3 rookie backers are always hard to trust. Kenneth Gainwell was a popular name on Twitter this summer, but the Eagles disagree.
Since Miles Sanders broke down, Gainwell’s use has actually decreases. Last week, he played 19% of offensive snaps, the lowest of the season. Gainwell is far, far behind Boston Scott and Jordan Howard on the Philadelphia back depth of field table. Once Sanders returns, it wouldn’t surprise me to see Gainwell inactive in good health every week. Send it back to the waiver thread.
Kansas City Chiefs Derrick Gore
I understand why Derrick Gore’s name appeared on many waiver thread columns last week (not mine, however). Any running back seeing significant use on the heads is at least worth signing up. Unfortunately, the process of adding Gore just didn’t make much sense.
Gore looked moderately competent on national television two weeks ago, but he’s only played 20% of the shots. Last week that figure dropped to 15%. Clyde Edwards-Helaire is due back in a week or two. There’s never been anything here with Gore.
Khalil Herbert, Chicago Bear
The Bears activated David Montgomery from the injured reserve ahead of Monday night’s showdown with the Steelers. Khalil Herbert has done pretty well during Montgomery’s absence, operating as a weekly firm RB2. Sadly, Herbert’s time in the spotlight is over.
Montgomery was immediately returned to his old role. Herbert’s performance clearly did not earn him any additional work. He only played 16% of the snaps while Montgomery was there for a season-high 85%. Herbert remains one of the best handcuffs in fantasy football, but he has no fantastic value while Montgomery is in good health. With bears on a goodbye this week, you can drop Herbert off safely if you need the place.
David Johnson, Houston Texans
The old man from the Texans backfield is still a part of 30% of Yahoo’s teams. David Johnson is yet to go 7 carries or 25 yards in a game.
Mark Ingram’s return to New Orleans hasn’t opened things up for Johnson. It’s always a three-way backfield with Rex Burkhead and Phillip Lindsay. DJ can still catch passes, but he’s just not a big part of a weak attacking. You can cut it.
List of fantastic cuts of the week 10 | Wide receivers
Which fantastic receivers are on the week 10 cut list? A veteran and a rookie are highlighting the list this week.
Rondale Moore, Arizona Cardinals
Adam Levitan of Setting the Course tweeted that Rondale Moore’s average target depth is 1.2 meters. Every time Moore touches the ball, it’s near the line of scrimmage on some kind of gimmicky game. It just isn’t targeted on real roads.

Moore is still on 30% of Yahoo’s listings. His 7.5 PPR fantasy points in Week 9 was his highest total since Week 5. That’s not happening for Moore this season. Use this list place on someone else.
Laviska Shenault Jr., Jacksonville Jaguars
Laviska Shenault Jr.’s escape never happened, and it’s not for any time soon. After the Jaguars’ exemption, Shenault was targeted exactly 4 times in both games. He is behind Marvin Jones Jr., Jamal Agnew and Dan Arnold in the pecking order.
Lawrence isn’t exactly producing fantastic stars this season. No Jaguar receiver is anything but a random WR4 – but Shenault isn’t even that. Maybe Shenault still erupts in 2022, but this season fantasy managers can safely cut him off.
Most weeks there aren’t any tight ends worth including. Feel free to cut any tight bangs for streaming purposes or if you need the listing location.
