Each week it is usually pretty easy to find the top fantasy football scores. Just switch on any highlight show and you'll be greeted with all the top scorers. If you had C.J. Stroud this week, Rachaad White, or Tank Dell, you win. But to figure out who didn't perform can take a little more digging. Who did not meet expectations? Who had a great matchup and flopped?

The bigger question around a player who had a bad week is what to do about from a fantasy manager perspective. Was it a blip and he'll perform normally next week? Is he untrustworthy, meaning that he is a roller coaster and you never know what you'll get week to week? Or should you bench him, trade him, or flat out drop him because he just doesn't have it this year.

Let's take a look at this week's top flops in fantasy football and what you should do about it.

Davante Adams

Davante Adams is a great wide receiver, probably top 5 in the league, and nobody is going to fault you for picking him in the first round. However, Aidan O'Connell is not a great quarterback. And either is Jimmy Garoppolo. Adams has hit double digit fantasy points once in the last five games.

This week he had 7.4 points on four receptions and and a lousy 34 yards. Though it is fun to remember his 42 points in Week 3, he had only gone over 20 points one other time this year. He just isn't going to produce with the current situation at quarterback for the Raiders. You should bench Davante Adams, it isn't going to turn around.
