Week 15 was an electrifying week for fantasy football, with points scored up and down the week’s slate of games. As we enter Week 16 of the 2023 season, byes are no more, and we are likely entering the second round of many 2023 fantasy football playoffs. Now, it’s time to scramble to the waiver wire to bid for this week’s hot talent and plug up holes on fantasy rosters. Inversely, it’s also time to cut players that disappointed in Week 15 to free up space for the next big thing. Sometimes an empty space on a fantasy team for waivers is more valuable than someone rostered in a majority of fantasy leagues. For this piece, I’m going to be referring to players rostered by at least 25 percent of teams in ESPN leagues, and I’ll list them in descending order of those ownership percentages.
Note: I will likely not be including any of the players I already mentioned in the previous week’s list. I suggest clicking the link below and making sure you don’t have some of those guys still hitching a ride on your roster.
WR Gabe Davis – Buffalo Bills (75% ESPN, 82% Yahoo!)
Unfortunately, Gabe Davis has disappeared more and more frequently as the 2023 season has progressed, managing to score ZERO fantasy points in four of his last six performances. As we enter the second round of the 2023 fantasy playoffs, those surviving teams that managed to have made it this far with Gabe Davis on their roster should think hard about risking a goose egg from Davis with everything on the line. Any player dropping goose eggs as frequently as Davis has no business being owned by as many teams as the rostered percentages suggest. Davis can be dropped in favor of a waiver wire stud or to perhaps play some defense on your opponent’s potential claims.
