10 Players We Are NEVER Drafting Again (2024 Fantasy Football)

As a fantasy football expert, it’s crucial to identify players who may no longer be viable picks for your fantasy team. Based on recent performances, injury histories, and changing team dynamics, here are Andrew Erickons’ top 10 players to avoid in your 2024 fantasy football drafts.

10 Players We Are NEVER Drafting Again in Fantasy Football

1. Quentin Johnston (WR – LAC)

Quentin Johnston, after a disappointing rookie season marked by low performance and missed opportunities, is considered a bust. His inability to capitalize on his chances makes him a risky pick for future drafts.

2. Mike Williams (WR – LAC)

Mike Williams’ inconsistency and injury history make him an unreliable option. His performance has been underwhelming, and these factors contribute to him being a less desirable choice for fantasy rosters.

3. Aaron Rodgers (QB – NYJ)

Aaron Rodgers has shown signs of decline, with no significant performances and limited rushing production. This decline suggests a decreasing fantasy value, making him a less attractive option for 2024.

4. Darren Waller (TE – NYG)

Injuries have severely impacted Waller’s performance. Despite being a primary target in the Giants’ passing game, his effectiveness has been limited, making him a less reliable fantasy asset.

5. Alexander Mattison (RB – MIN)

Mattison’s performance led to him losing his starting job, and his subsequent underperformance make him a nonviable option for fantasy football teams.

6. Cam Akers (RB – MIN)

Akers fell out of favor with the Los Angeles Rams and suffered an Achilles injury after being traded to the Vikings. This history makes him a risky choice for fantasy drafts.

7. Cooper Kupp (WR – LAR)

Kupp has experienced a decline in production and recent injuries, indicating a potential downturn in his fantasy value. This downturn raises concerns for his future drafts.

8. Najee Harris (RB – PIT)

Despite being a top 10 in touches, Harris has struggled at the beginning of the season and has not cracked the top 12 fantasy running backs overall. His touchdown dependence and inconsistent performance make him a less reliable pick.

9. Austin Ekeler (RB – LAC)

Ekeler had a disastrous year with career lows, suggesting he may be on a major downswing in his football career. This decline mirrors that of other players who have hit a performance cliff.

10. Stefon Diggs (WR – BUF)

Diggs’ low target share and air yards, combined with his lackluster finish in fantasy football, make him a less confident draft pick. Increasing competition in the Bills’ offense for targets further diminishes his appeal.

These players, once considered top picks, have various factors affecting their desirability in fantasy football. It’s important to stay updated on player performances, injuries, and team changes to make informed decisions in your fantasy drafts.
