Roster Overview: Part III

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

 Leland (No Soup For You)

QB: Philip Rivers, Matthew Stafford

WR: A.J. Green, Michael Thomas, Randall Cobb, Cameron Meredith, Marvin Jones

RB: David Johnson, James White, Jerick McKinnon, Christine Michael, Paul Perkins, Chris Ivory

TE: Eric Ebron, Julius Thomas, Zach Ertz

Potential Keepers: David Johnson, Michael Thomas, A.J. Green

Overview: Leland's already made his intentions clear, he's keeping David Johnson and Michael Thomas, both no brainers as their Draft slots are in the 14th and 10th round respectively. Also, although he's dropping A.J. Green, Leland has the #1 pick from winning the Michael Wiley Loser Bowl, so if Green ends up the best of the bunch he can always redraft him there. I'm not going to say Leland's lock to win it all or anything, because I thought that last year and he didn't even make the playoffs, but if things go to plan, Leland SHOULD be one of the better teams in the league next year.

Dad (Big Bad Bob) 

QB: Cam Newton, Andy Dalton

WR: Devante Adams, Willie Snead, Emmanuel Sanders, Pierre Garcon, Jeremy Maclin, Mohammad Sanu

TE: Lance Kendricks

RB: Devonta Freeman, Frank Gore, Darren Sproles

Potential Keepers: Cam Newton, DeVante Adams, Willie Snead, Emmanuel Sanders, Devonta Freeman

Overview: Man it really looked Dad would have a great team last season because if his high keeper picks of Cam Newton and Jeremy Langford. Unfortunately Cam was TERRIBLE, Langford was WORSE, Thomas Rawls was always hurt and Brandon Marshall SUCKED and it torpedoed Dad's season. By some sort of miracle, he actually finished 8th place. The lone bright spot was a late season trade he made with Ryan for Devonta Freeman and Freeman is a no brainer keep for Dad now in Round 9. The other keeper slot? Not so easy. He can take a risk and hope Cam bounces back and keep him in Round 8, but that's extremely risky. DeVante Adams is interesting, but you're going to have to pay current ADP to keep him.  Willie Snead is a value keep with some potential, and Emmanuel Sanders is as reliable as you can get, and though you're not really getting value, he's a solid option. Whatever Dad does, he also gets the #2 of the draft so hopefully for him, it's the beginning of a rebuilding season after last year's nightmare.

Matt (Light's Broken Bots)

QB: Tom Brady, Russell Wilson

WR: Jordy Nelson, Tyrell Williams, Corey Coleman, Allen Hurns, Josh Gordon, Kelvin Benjamin

TE: Jared Cook, Rob Gronkowski 

RB: Isaish Crowell, Jeremy Hill, Matt Asiata, Charcandrick West, Jamaal Charles

Potential Keepers: Tom Brady, Russell Wilson, Jordy Nelson, Kelvin Benjamin, Rob Gronkowski, Isaish Crowell

Overview: Well..Matt's team was another one that was just totally ravaged by injury. So with some solid keeper options and the #3 overall pick, Matt's in a good position to redeem himself from last year. One keeper that's gotta be basically locked in is Jordy Nelson. He's still a 10th round keep and there's no way Matt lets him go there. The other a little trickier. Tom Brady in Round 7 seems like a pretty good steal, but then Isaish Crowell has been gaining steam in fantasy circles and with RB as thin as it is, has the potential to be a bigger steal as an 8th round keep. Matt could decided to be risky again and keep Gronk, but it would cost him his 1st round pick. Matt's decisions will definitely have a big affect on the how the draft goes, so it'll be interesting to see where he goes with his keepers.
