Every week I've done a fantasy series on players who can be dropped after disappointing performances in the first few gamesof the season. Some players, like Coby Fleener, have proven me wrong. But most of the time my predictions have been spot on and all players dropped have remained of limited utility. Let's take a look at another four fantasy players who have reached the point where they can now be safely dropped.

1. Golden Tate.

Golden Tate is done. He has exactly 11 fantasy points in four weeks and is worth pretty much nothing as a fantasy commodity. The true number one wide receiver on the Detroit Lions is Marvin Jones, who is quickly emerging as one of the better receivers in the league.

Even Anquan Boldin has more fantasy utility than Tate! Just drophim and pick up a different player who might actually provide some value to your team.

2. Justin Forsett.

It's time to say goodbye to the former starting Ravens running back. Terrance West got a chance to win the starting job in week 4 and delivered with a big performance that will make him a hot waiver wire commodity for week 5. Forsett is too old, too slow, and too limited to occupy a roster spot on your team. Make sure to drop Forsett on all teams and replace him with someone that could actually help.

3. Gio Bernard.

Do you know how many fantasy points Gio has scored in the first four weeks of the season? Exactly 23, less than 6 fantasy points per game.

And 15 of those fantasy points came in a game against the Steelers in which Bernard led the Bengals in receiving with 100 yards. What are the chances of that happening again? Jeremy Hill gets a majority of the work and is the only real option for non-PPR leagues. It's time to drop Bernard if you still have him.

4. Ryan Tannehill.

The Dolphins quarterback was actually a top ten fantasyquarterback for the first three weeks of the year but fell back to Earth with a seven point performance against a stout Bengals defense. Now he will have to take on a Titans defense that is very stingy against the pass and rather good at getting to the quarterback.

That will mean problems for Ryan Tannehill, who has played behind a very weak offensive line for the entire season. Drop him and try to find a better replacement quarterback on the waiver wire.
