Who to drop (Mike Evans)?

12 team 0.5 ppr auction $200 cap dynasty league (salaries go up each year), start 1QB, 1RB, 2WR, 1TE, 2FLEX (RB/WR/TE), 1K, 1D. We can have up to 18 players rostered.

The draft includes all rookies and any players dropped before the draft.

My team:
QB: Mahomes ($18), Cousins ($7)
RB: Javonte Williams ($29), Chubb ($23), Melvin Gordon ($11), Ronald Jones ($4)
WR: Evans ($43), M. Thomas ($15), Waddle ($11), Tee Higgins ($10), Sutton ($10), Pittman Jr. ($8)
TE: Andrews ($10), Fant ($7), Smith Jr. ($3)
K: Matt G. ($3)

Short Question: Who would you drop before draft?

Explanation: I need to drop players before the deadline (2 days away) to get under the salary cap and to have some cap for the draft. I’m thinking dropping Cousins, Jones, and Fant make sense, not sure about Evans as he is my best WR based on ranking and points, but he costs a lot and I could probably get him back if needed cheaper in the auction draft.

Extra Question: Who would you target in the draft (or what position)?

I would only target players who are not kept by other teams–keeps the confusion to a minimum.

Drop a $3 K, of course, but I’d drop Cousins, Gordon, Jones, Evans, Waddle, Fant and Smith as well.

That leaves you $77 to target another alpha WR and solid RB, plus a few bucks to fill out a bench.

In my view you have VG WR’s and Evans is way overpaid. He is the cur.
