As usual, there are a ton of intriguing options available on the waiver wire this week. But to make room for the big names and the sleepers, you'll probably need to make some cuts.

That can be infuriating, as fantasy managers are often forced to admit defeat on some once-promising options. And it's rarely as simple as just cutting guys who haven't produced, as you'll only want to part ways with players that don't have much long-term upside.

With that in mind, here are three players you can drop to make room for additions on the waiver wire in Week 14.

3. Carson Wentz, QB, Philadelphia Eagles (60% Rostered)

Carson Wentz probably shouldn't have been rostered at this point anyway, but his fantasy value is completely gone now. The Philadelphia Eagles have benched Wentz in favor of Jalen Hurts, who makes for an intriguing waiver wire addition himself. There's simply no reason to roster Wentz any more.

2. Tyler Boyd, Cincinnati Bengals (87% Rostered)

Tyler Boyd's Week 13 game looked a lot better than it was. He turned his lone reception into a 72-yard touchdown. That's obviously not going to happen every week, and the 4 targets he saw was a worryingly low figure. In fact, Cincinnati has now played 2 games without Joe Burrow. In those two, Boyd is averaging 5.0 targets and 2.0 catches per game. That's a significant drop from the 8.7 targets and 6.9 catches per game he averaged with a healthy Burrow. Boyd is not someone you can start with confidence any more, making him droppable if there's a better option on the waiver wire now that we're in the fantasy playoffs.

1. Jerry Jeudy, Denver Broncos (69% Rostered)

At this point, it doesn't look like the rookie year breakout is coming for Jerry Jeudy. And things are clearly trending in the wrong direction. Over his last three weeks, Jeudy has only caught 4 passes for 42 yards. And over his last two games, Jeudy has only seen a combined 5 targets. He's clearly fallen behind Tim Patrick and Noah Fant on the pecking order, and this is not an offense that can sustain three fantasy-relevant receivers. The only point in keeping Jeudy on the roster is his potential keeper value, but if you don't play in a keeper league, he's not someone you need to hang onto.
