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 11.

Players to Drop Fantasy Football

3. Marvin Jones Jr., WR, Detroit Lions (75% Rostered)

Names like T.Y. Hilton and Mark Ingram stand out as obvious cuts, so we'll go with a slightly counterintuitive pick in Marvin Jones Jr. The Detroit Lions' veteran has been lighting it up over the last two weeks, averaging 69.5 receiving yards on 5.5 catches per game with 2 TDs. But both of those games came with Kenny Golladay out of the lineup, and Jones has pretty much been invisible when Golladay has suited up. He's only averaged 2.8 catches for 37.4 receiving yards per game across the five contests Golladay has played. Simply put, if Golladay plays Jones is not worth starting in fantasy. If Golladay is ultimately inactive again this week you can hang on to Jones, but the second he's back Jones is droppable.

2. A.J. Green, WR, Cincinnati Bengals (57% Rostered)

A.J. Green looked washed up at the start of the year, but he regained some fantasy relevancy by putting together a nice mid-season stretch. Unfortunately, as Green's fantasy managers can attest, it looks like that resurgence was short lived. He's drawn a total of 10 targets over the last two weeks, catching just 2 passes for a total of 19 yards. Green is also coming off a goose egg in Week 10. It's clear that the rebuilding Bengals are opting to focus in on younger receivers like Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd, leaving Green on the outside looking in. You can find WRs with better short- and long-term outlooks on the waiver wire without breaking a sweat.

1. Devin Singletary, RB, Buffalo Bills (84% Rostered)

We've been beating the drop Devin Singletary drum for a while now. But he's still rostered in 84% of Yahoo! leagues despite the fact that he ranks outside the top-40 at the position in fantasy production since Week 5. In fact, he's failed to reach double-digit PPR points in five of his last six outings. Singletary won't be worth starting unless fellow Bills' RB Zack Moss goes down, so you shouldn't lose any sleep over cutting him.
