This is the time of year in fantasy football when teams are trying to make that push for a playoff spot. That means they are going to have to make some tough decisions as they try to improve their roster.

When looking at players to add from waivers, these are five players that could be dropped to create that roster spot.

5 players that are worth dropping before Week 8 in fantasy football

Deshaun Watson

In Week 3, Deshaun Watson started to play like a top quarterback when he had 289 passing yards with two touchdowns and no turnovers. However, since that game he would be inactive for two games with a bye in the middle due to a shoulder injury and returned in Week 7 against the Indianapolis Colts.

The return was short-lived as he would leave the game after only 12 snaps and completed one of his five pass attempts with an interception. Watson has shown at times he can be a QB1 in fantasy football but the best ability is availability.

Right now, he is too much of a risk to start and there are much better options at quarterback, especially one quarterback leagues.
