Dynasty Roster Cutdown Help

Hi all,

I’ve got a 10-team, 0.5 PPR dynasty team that I need to cut or trade six guys (I’ve found trading in this league to be excessively difficult), and I’d greatly appreciate your help in determining who to move on from. Here’s my roster…

Starting Lineup (8/8):
QB: Matthew Stafford, LAR
RB1: Aaron Jones, GB
RB2: Austin Ekeler, LAC
WR1: DeAndre Hopkins, ARI
WR2: Julio Jones, TEN
TE: Jared Cook, LAC
FLEX1: Kareem Hunt, CLE
FLEX2: Brandin Cooks, HOU

Bench (20/14):

  • QB: Deshaun Watson, HOU
  • QB: Matt Ryan, ATL
  • RB: Raheem Mostert, SF
  • RB: Mike Davis, ATL
  • RB: Javonte Williams, DEN
  • RB: Giovani Bernard, TB
  • RB: Devontae Booker, NYG
  • WR: Marvin Jones Jr., JAX
  • WR: Darnell Mooney, CHI
  • WR: Tee Higgins, CIN
  • WR: Jalen Reagor, PHI
  • WR: Allen Lazard, GB
  • WR: Bryan Edwards, LV
  • WR: Nelson Agholor, NE
  • WR: Devin Duvernay, BAL
  • WR: Anthony Miller, HOU
  • TE: Adam Trautman, NO
  • TE: Jonnu Smith, NE
  • TE: Cole Kmet, CHI
  • TE: Blake Jarwin, DAL

Taxi Squad (4/4):

  • QB: Trey Lance, SF
  • WR: Dyami Brown, WSH
  • WR: Nico Collins, HOU
  • WR: Josh Palmer, LAC

Who should I cut? As of right now, I’m thinking…

  1. Deshaun Watson, QB, HOU
  2. Giovani Bernard, RB, TB
  3. Devin Duvernay, WR, BAL
  4. Anthony Miller, WR, HOU
  5. Jonnu Smith, TE, NE
  6. Cole Kmet, TE, CHI

Obviously, I’ll continue to try to make trades before cutting anybody (deadline is about a month away, before TNF of Week 1), but still: any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Edit: Added Anthony Miller to the “cutting board,” replacing Nelson Agholor.

I would cut Jarwin instead of Jonnu. Hunter Henry is injured right now and the Patriots are going to have a game plan for their big TE signings. Their WRs are not the best.

I would also cut Devontae Booker because he has no upside (and keep Watson).

Keep Watson for sure. I’m also struggling with lazard.

I think Jared Cook is a potential drop / trade. You have other options I prefer much more than him at TE

I personally would drop Miller (1), Duvernay (2), Jarwin (3), Booker (4), Bernard (5).

I agree with @Mr_Wind-up_Bird to attempt to trade Cook (6) to a team with no TE depth.

This is just my suggestion looking at your team.

Kmet, smith, duvernay, agholor, booker, Watson but man, draft a qb :slight_smile:

Watson is going to play again and probably the QB of your future unless you’re putting all your eggs in the Trey Lance basket.

If you’re not willing to roster him, you should at least trade him.
