Roster Overview: Part II

Here's the 2nd part of Roster Overviews. These will be done in installments of 3.

Eugene (Rocket Man)

QB: Aaron Rodgers

WR: Julio Jones, DeAndre Hopkins, DeVante Parker, Rishard Matthews, J.J. Nelson

RB: Melvin Gordon, Kenneth Dixon, Duke Johnson, Kenneth Farrow, Matt Jones

TE: Martellus Bennett, Travis Kelce 

Potential Keepers: Aaron Rodgers, Julio Jones, DeAndre Hopkins, DeVante Parker, Melvin Gordon, Travis Kelce

Overview: Well..Eugene's choice of keepers intrigues the most. Aaron Rodgers and Julio Jones have been the backbone of his team the past couple of seasons...but with Melvin Gordon having a first round grade and being able to be kept in Round 5..could it be time for a change? Or was Melvin Gordon, who seems to be injury prone, and also sucked his rookie year beyond belief, just a 1 year fluke? Do you go with good ol reliable? Or take a gamble at some fresh blood? What about last year's #1 Tight End (also made the Wane McGarity All Stud Team) Travis Kelce? He'd be a steal in the 6th round as well. DeVante Parker SEEMED to also be a super interesting choice, but with the Tannehill news, even at round 13, there's probably a few guys I'd take ahead of him. DeAndre Hopkins certainly didn't live up to his first round hype last year, but he's still a 3rd round value and may be giving a tiny bit of consideration as well. All I know is there's going to be some good talent being redrafted, the question will be, just exactly who.

Kenny (Easy Beasley)

QB: Matt Ryan, Dak Prescott

WR: Antonio Brown, Amari Cooper, Mike Wallace, Ted Ginn, DeSean Jackson, Golden Tate

RB: Lamar Miller, Jay Ajayi, Matt Forte, Gio Bernard, T.J. Yeldon

TE: Jason Witten

Potential Keepers: Antonio Brown, Amari Cooper, Jay Ajayi, Matt Ryan, Dak Prescott

Overview: So Kenny inherits Mayra's team which means 100% he's keeping Antonio Brown. Let's not even pretend that Brown being available is a possibility. Now a week ago, Jay Ajayi was the 2nd no brainer as a Round 12 Keep. Then he got concussed...THEN Ryan Tannehill went down this week, which downgrades all Dolphins position players. I'd still say the choice is Ajayi becuase of the low risk nature of the keep, however it does open the door a tad to play it safe with either QB (Matt Ryan and Dak would be 8th and 13th round keeps respectively) or even Amari Cooper in the 2nd round (though I'd guess Kenny would want more value in his 2nd keeper). Typical Kenny...already started this season with a thousand important decisions to make.

Mike (Woe Is You)

QB: Derek Carr

WR: Odell Beckham, Terrelle Pryor, Stefon Diggs, Taylor Gabriel, Eric Decker

RB: Jonathan Stewart, Todd Gurley, Tim Hightower, James Starks, Jalen Richard, Shane Vereen, Charles Sims, Alfred Morris

TE: Antonio Gates, Cameron Brate

Potential Keepers: Derek Carr, Odell Beckham, Terrelle Pryor, Stefon Diggs, Todd Gurley

Overview: Mike's got some interesting decisions to make as well. I'd say Beckham is a lock as a 1st round keep but after that, there are some interesting solid choices. Terrelle Pryor has a ton of upside with Washington and he'd be a last round keep. That kind of value is hard to ignore, but there is risk involved that he might bust. It's easy to survive a last round bust though. Stefon Diggs showed potential as well and he'd be a 6th round keep while although Todd Gurley was MEGA shitty last year, but because running back is such a weak position he's still considering a big value as a 6th round keep. Then there's also Derek Carr, who has to be considered as well in the 9th round. Mike's another team to keep an eye on because he's going to be letting go of some good talent regardless of who he keeps.
