Welcome back to “Off The Deep End”, where I will give you fantasy baseball tips on who to pick up or drop in deeper leagues.  For people who play standard leagues, drop/add columns are easy for you to find, but for those of you that love deeper leagues, advice can be harder to come by.  That is where I can help.

Today we will cover those players that just aren’t cutting it.  Look, I get it.  The team you drafted is the team you committed to to help you win a league championship.  Cutting ties with them can feel like breaking up with a girlfriend or boyfriend.  I am here to tell you that you owe nothing to these players.  They won’t know if you drop them.  Allegiances can be dangerous in the world of fantasy sports.  I am here to tell you who it is okay to drop in deeper leagues.  I promise that they won’t find out!

Catchers:

J.P. Arencibia, Rangers: I like his upside as much as anyone, but he is really in the tank right now.  He is hitting a pathetic .071 on the season with only one walk.  While he will likely still see many at-bats, he doesn’t have to drag you down with him.

Alex Avila, Tigers: The six walks help, but his .182 average and zero RBI on the season aren’t doing you any good.  I can think of 20 better options than Avila right now, meaning he can be dropped in leagues up to 20 teams, or ten team leagues that start two catchers.
