Notable 2022 NFL cuts

WR Josh Gordon (Chiefs)

Gordon has had a good time making Kansas City’s roster on the Remix receiving team, but he could end up losing his NFL chances at 31.

TE OJ Howard (Bills)

Howard got over $3 million from Buffalo to replace Dawson Knox, but he had a terrible training camp and preseason. That could hasten the retirement of the Pirates’ first-rounder in 2017.

OT Alex Leatherwood (Raiders)

Leatherwood is the team’s most disappointing first-rounder in 2021. His release mirrored what had happened to Henry Luggers III and Damon Arnett before him in other circumstances. Fortunately, Las Vegas was not selected in the first round in 2022.

QB Josh Rosen (Browns)

Adding Cleveland to Arizona, Miami, Tampa Bay, San Francisco and Atlanta all publish roses. The 2018 first-round pick keeps squandering chances, but he could be missing out in the NFL right now.

QB Karen Mond (Vikings)

For the third-place finisher in 2021, that leaves Kirk Cousins ​​sweating. He quickly fell out of favor with a new offensive coaching staff led by Kevin O’Connell.

RB Philip Lindsay (Colts)

The Broncos’ two-lead rusher has been in free fall since joining the Texans and Dolphins, but still hasn’t made it to his fourth team.

RB Sony Michel (Dolphins)

Michelle took him a bit by surprise as he was considered a solid veteran and added support for adding Chase Edmonds in free agency as often-injured former 49er Raheem Most was No. 2. In the end, he was sandwiched between two other newcomers and young incumbents, Miles Gaskin and Salvin Ahmed.

RB Marlon Mack (Texans)

The presence of rookies Dameon Pierce and Rex Burkhead’s favorite passing game ensures that Houston doesn’t fall behind Mack’s limited power on the roster.

DT Danny Shelton (Chiefs)

After failing to break Kansas City’s rotation, the Browns’ tall first-round pick (the 12th overall pick) in the 2015 draft may have come to an end.

S Jacquiski Tartt (Eagles)

The longtime 49ers secondary hitter has caught up with injuries and his age (30) is once again transitioning from starter to free agent.

WR Laquon Treadwell (Jaguars)

Treadwell was a first-round pick for the Vikings in late 2016, and in Urban Meyer’s lone season, he was getting some traction out of necessity. Trevor Lawrence’s newly designed passing game, including Christian Kirk and Zay Jones, is his downfall.

WR Mohamed Sanu (Dolphins)

The 33-year-old former Bengals and Falcons may call it a career with four teams afterward, as a brief 49ers reunion with Mike McDaniel helped his career as a senior.

RB Tevin Coleman (Jets)

The recently frequently injured former Falcons and 49ers top committee doesn’t need to be behind rookie Breece Hall and sophomore Michael Carter.

RB Duke Johnson (Bills)

The former Browns, Texans and Dolphins Johnson was doomed as the team drafted a dynamic James Cook behind Devin Singletary and Zack Moss.

WR Preston Williams (Dolphins)

He used to have some traction with the old offensive coaching staff who worked with former Dolphin DeVante Parker, but there’s no place for him behind Tyreek Hill, Jaylen Waddle, Cedrick Wilson Jr. and rookie Erik Ezukanma.

WR Kevin White (Saints)

The Bears’ injury-limited career with the No. 7 overall pick in 2015 is likely to end at age 30.

TE Devin Funchess (Lions)

The former Michigan star wide receiver, a second-rounder for the Panthers in 2015, couldn’t make it to another spot for his hometown and fifth team.

S. Logan Ryan (Buccaneers)

The former Patriots and Giants don’t have a position deep because Tampa Bay Middle School is so healthy and dynamic even without Jordan Whitehead.

QB Carson Strong (Eagles)

The undrafted rookie from Nevada suffered a knee injury in college and couldn’t keep up with Jalen Hurts and Gardner Minshew.

QBs Cooper Rush and Will Grier (Cowboys)

Former West Virginia star and Panthers draft pick Greer lost to Rush. The rush to win the job back by default didn’t motivate Dallas. The team has decided (for now) to only work with Dak Prescott, since Ben DiNucci has also been released. Look for the Cowboys to add another veteran backup.

QB Trace McSorley (Cardinals)

Lamar Jackson’s former Ravens developer couldn’t hold on to third behind Kyler Murray and reliable veteran Colt McCoy.

QB Josh Johnson (Broncos)

Denver represented another brief stop for its 22nd professional team, accounting for Johnson’s total stops in the NFL, UFL, XFL and AAC. Until Brett Rypien got the job, he looked like he might be Russell Wilson’s number two.

QB Nathan Peterman (Bears)

The former Bills and Raiders never really got behind Justin Fields and Trevor Simian.

WR Kendall Hinton (Broncos)

Even with Tim Patrick sidelined this season, the 2020 emergency starter QB has been left out of Russell Wilson’s fairly deep team as a pass receiver.

QB Davis Webb (Giants)

The team’s third-round pick in 2017 was last season’s Bills and Brian Dabore, who wasn’t strong enough to reignite his career after Daniel Jones and Terrod Taylor.

WR Tyler Johnson (Buccaneers)

Johnson got some promises from Minnesota ahead of Rachaud Bateman, but the 2020 fifth-round pick didn’t flash enough to survive a crowded numbers game from Tom Brady’s goal.

QB Sean Mannion (Vikings)

Mannion also joins Moon’s new offense away from Minnesota, with freshman Nick Mullens serving as a backup behind Cousins.

QB Ian Books (Saints)

Jameis Winston and Andy Dalton, two former longtime starters, are at the top of the depth chart, so there’s no need for the 2021 four-rounder Book as a developing item.

Quarterback Nate Sudfield (49ers)

Jimmy Garoppolo no longer needs him to support Trey Lance after the reorganization, and the irrelevant Mr. Brock Purdy has more development potential.

RB JaMycal Hasty (49ers)

San Francisco’s revamped backcourt was the norm in the Kyle Shanahan era. Impressive undrafted rookie Jordan Mason made haste a casualty.

RB Patrick Claird (Buccaneers)

The former Dolphins have little chance of staying in a crowded backcourt for another Florida team.

RB Anthony McFarland (Steelers)

The Steelers are looking for better insurance for sophomore workaholic Nagy Harris and found insurance in McFarland’s previous undrafted rookie Jaylen Warren.

WR Kierandos (Giants)

Doss being cut is nothing new, but the Raiders’ former “Hard Knocks” star isn’t enough to make a broad team with his problems.

TE Thaddeus Moss (Bengals)

So the former LSU star with Joe Burrow and Randy’s isn’t behind Hayden Hurst and Drew Sample after showing limited flashes as receivers.

TE Anthony Firkser (Falcons)

The Harvard product and former Titan Arthur Smith didn’t do enough to get behind Kyle Pitts in tight end space.

Sean Gibson (49ers)

Gibson tried to come back at 32 to save his career, but the Jaguars’ former key starter didn’t show enough.

RB Ty’Son Williams (Colts)

The Ravens’ additions early last season put the team behind Jonathan Taylor and Nyheim HInes.

C. Austin Reiter (Chiefs)

The team went through a major upgrade last year, with the former interior starter continuing his decline with Trey Smith and Clay Humphrey at guard and center.

S Will Parks (Jets)

Parks, a former starter for New York and Denver, was ousted in a second offseason update to Robert Saleh.

RB Tyler Badie (Ravens)

The rookie sixth-rounder had a chance to return from injury in J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards, but failed to capitalize on it, prompting the team to add Kenya Drake along with Mike Davis.

P Matt Araiza (Bills)

The “Punt God” and promising rookie sixth-rounder will fill the role in Buffalo, but the nasty off-court charges could be over before his career begins.

The best adds for week 17 of Fantasy Football 2022

Time to open week 17 of the 2022 NFL season with a lot of things to settle in our beloved league before the postseason begins. There are still open wild card spots left and some divisions have yet to know their winners. With only two rounds left in the regular season, we will still see “fights” on several fronts.

Advertisements

In our favorite virtual game, things are a little different. It is time for the grand finals in most fantasy football leagues, with some GMs still fighting for “bronze medals” and others for better placements. And since nobody likes to lose, today’s tips are not only for the grand finalists, but for everyone trying to finish higher on the “podiums”.

Advertisements

Whether it is to compete for the grand final or even an honorable third place, the waiver wire is once again necessary for those who aim to strengthen their team with an eye on the most important duel of the whole season. So, once again The Playoffs is here, being your best friend to help you find a good name to replace a considerable loss or even a player hidden in the huge waiver wire list that can contribute to your success in the “hour of truth”.

It’s worth remembering that you can’t be too careful when giving up a name in order to add a player via waivers, since placing a certain athlete on the market can mean an unwanted improvement to an opposing team.

To be eligible in our list, players have to be on, at most, 60% of the NFL.com Fantasy Football squads, which is the most popular and famous platform among Brazilians.

It is also possible that the names mentioned here are in a higher or lower percentage of squads in other applications, such as Yahoo, ESPN and Sleeper, although the tendency is that the average is similar.

Again, we reiterate that we use as a parameter the PPR score (when points are computed per reception), again because it is the standard and most famous model, currently, of the game, having stolen the “crown” of the old Standard (or non-PPR) in recent years.

With that and without further ado, let’s get to the names for the week 17 – FOR TITLE MY FRIENDS!

RUNNING BACKS

Tyler Allgeier – Atlanta Falcons (17.3% rostered*)

With four consecutive losses in the league and no chance of qualifying for the playoffs, the Atlanta Falcons are no longer contending for big things this year. Therefore, after the bye week, who has been gaining space in the team round after round is running back Tyler Allgeier. The freshman is increasingly participating in snaps and his number of carries has increased significantly, with him passing for 100 rushing yards in Week 15 on 17 attempts, and reaching 74 yards on 18 attempts in Week 16. The number of passes received by the youngster has also skyrocketed, with him managing four receptions for 43 yards in the last round, in five times he was targeted. The Falcons face the Arizona Cardinals, who are also not contending for anything this season and have one of the worst defenses against the run game in the entire NFL. Allgeier should deliver good points. Add him if he is available.

James Cook – Buffalo Bills (33.8% rostered)

The Bills are already guaranteed in the playoffs and have clinched the AFC East. The team is still aiming for the bye week in the first round of playoffs and for that they need to keep winning their games. Another point that Buffalo wants to find a solution for is in the ground game, perhaps the only weak point of a team that has been completely well put together so far. And that’s where James Cook comes in, who is increasingly involved in the team’s offensive game and has been matching up well. In the last game against the Chicago Bears, there were 11 attempts for 99 yards and a ground TD for the No. 28, who has been getting more and more involved and tends to take over the backfield of the team in the playoffs. He should continue to be very active and could be an important player to add to your roster.

*Percentage of teams in official NFL Fantasy leagues that have this athlete on their roster

WIDE RECEIVERS

Isaiah Hodgins – New York Giants (0.3% rostered)

The Giants are still in contention. The team’s defense has grown in production and, amazingly, Daniel Jones has been taking good care of the oval ball and making interesting starts. With the QB well protected and able to find passes, a name that has been gaining more and more action in New York’s offense is Isaiah Hodgins, who has had plenty of offensive carries in the team’s last four games. All right, the commitment now is against the Indianapolis Colts’ secondary, which is one of the strongest against wide receivers, but Hodgins is becoming Jones’ ball security and in a team that needs to win to keep dreaming, the trend is good passes from the QB to the WR. Keep an eye on him.

Jahan Dotson – Washington Commanders (7.9% rostered)

A name mentioned last week that is once again being remembered in this column due to the Washington Commanders WR’s great form. Shrouded in expectations before the season started, Dotson did not mesh well early in the year with Carson Wentz, but when the former Eagles and Colts player got injured and Taylor Heinicke took over the quarterback spot for the Commanders, Dotson’s numbers skyrocketed and the WR started to show up even more than Curtis Samuel, who was Wentz’s safety ball in the first few games of the 2022 NFL season. The freshman is coming off TDs noted in Week 15 and 16 and with a good load. He should continue to be important for Washington this final stretch, even if Wentz returns to the team as he did last round.

TIGHT ENDS

Cole Kmet – Chicago Bears (57.0% rostered)

That the Bears have grown during the year and displayed a better game than what we saw in the first half of the season, that no one can deny. The growth came mainly through Justin Fields, who overnight changed “from water to wine” and started to show good numbers throwing and running the ball, which we had not seen until then in the career of the once promising QB drafted by Chicago. With Fields’ growth, the direct beneficiary was TE Cole Kmet, who got a lot of carries and a significant gain in offensive carries, becoming one of the main, if not the main, offensive weapon of the Bears. In Week 17, Kmet faces the defense of the Denver Broncos, one of the worst teams in the league and the 5th worst in scoring TEs.

Juwan Johnson – New Orleans Saints (12.5% rostered)

Another name repeated around here. Juwan Johnson has grown quite a bit, especially after Michael Thomas got injured and is out for the rest of the season. As Chris Olave also suffers from physical problems, Johnson is gaining ground in the New Orleans offense and has been showing good rapport with Andy Dalton. The Saints were virtually eliminated, but managed to grow, recovered and are now fighting for a wild card spot, or even the division, since the leader Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been skating. Keep an eye on Juwan Johnson, who should have plenty of carries in this final stretch of the season.

QUARTERBACK

Brock Purdy – San Francisco 49ers (27.3% rostered)

A regular around here, Brock Purdy was a real find for the San Francisco 49ers the year after the injuries to Trey Lance and Jimmy Garoppolo. I’ll say it again, the 49ers have one of the most organized teams in the entire league, with a super protective offensive line, great receivers, healthy George Kittle blocking and receiving passes, and the “icing on the cake” Christian McCaffrey, who came in during the year, running the ball or receiving passes. With so many standouts around, Purdy has stepped in and has been doing his job, keeping California’s team as one of the favorites to win the title. Some say that the team has been playing even better than when Jimmy G was the starter.

With so many lures, it is easier for Brock Purdy to find free receivers, making important points in the FF. Add him, it’s the last chance.

None of Matt Ryan, Sam Ehlinger, or Nick Foles is a solution for the Colts.

None of Matt Ryan, Sam Ehlinger, or Nick Foles is a solution for the Colts.

Jeff Saturday made one last adjustment. It was ineffective.

Advertisements

With the Indianapolis Colts’ offense sputtering, Saturday made the decision to activate Nick Foles as the starting quarterback for their game against the Los Angeles Chargers. Matt Ryan’s deterioration has been evident in recent weeks, as the Colts have struggled to move the ball down the field. Saturday believed Foles may provide a spark to the offense moving forward.

The Colts were defeated 20-3 by the Chargers despite only managing 173 yards of total offense. Foles struggled throughout the whole game, going 17 of 29 (59%) for 143 yards, three interceptions, and a 31.9 quarterback rating. For the majority of the evening, Foles resembled the third-string quarterback the Colts have used for the majority of the season.

Despite all the speculation about how Foles might assist the Colts in moving the ball down the field, nothing of the kind occurred Monday night. Michael Pittman Jr.’s 19-yard reception was the game’s longest play. The Colts had a dismal 0-10 record on third down. The only team this season with a worse third down conversion rate? The Colts lost to the New England Patriots in Week 9 and finished with a record of 0-14.

After the game, Saturday stated, “Pretty straightforward – can’t turn it over.” You know, you can’t leave the defense on the field, so you have to convert on third downs offensively, get them off the field.

Again attempting to bear the burden, the Chargers’ quarterback Justin Herbert was sacked four times and forced into two fumbles. However, it is hard to compete when the offense is as terrible as it was on Monday night.

Foles said, “I believe we never found a rhythm as an offense. “I believe the points are clear. Three points is never going to be sufficient, to be honest. As a result, our offensive never really found its groove. And the quarterback is where it all begins. We also need to play well the whole game to attempt to establish a rhythm.

The truth is that under these conditions, Foles was never going to succeed. You can discuss Foles’ incredible 2017 campaign, in which he entered at the tail end of the campaign and guided the Philadelphia Eagles to a championship. However, Foles was surrounded that season by a fantastic Eagles squad. Not the Colts.

The Colts’ protection problems again as they allowed seven sacks in the game. The Colts have already allowed 56 sacks in 2022, and they are currently on track to surpass the previous high mark set by the team in a single season. Even while Saturday suggested that some of those sacks could have resulted from field coverage further back, Foles’ pocket continued to open up fast.

Along with playing alongside players he is still getting acquainted to, Foles was under pressure for the duration of the game. Early last week, it was made public that before the Chargers game, Foles will practice with the starting offense for the first time. Alec Pierce, Parris Campbell, and Pittman received some of his few passes.

The moment a shift occurs, Foles said, “you step in and try to become acclimated as fast as you can and, you know, get the timing down and everything.” “Our practice week was incredibly productive. It’s disappointing that the execution fell short of what we required to win this game.

It was almost hard for Foles to walk in and perform effectively in that circumstance. When you add it to the experienced quarterback’s poor choices and misfires, the offense had the worst appearance in the NFL. The Denver Broncos, the only club with a lower scoring average (15.5) than the Indianapolis Colts (16.5), at least managed to score a touchdown in their lopsided defeat to the Los Angeles Rams. After the game, their head coach was sacked as well.

The Colts’ roster contains no quarterbacks who can save this squad. Father Time has finally caught up with Ryan, who now throws with little to no velocity, struggles to handle the football, and appears to be moving more slowly than ever. Despite having a better arm, Foles struggles to move properly and makes terrible judgments while playing football with players with whom he has barely ever practiced.

You might argue that having Sam Ehlinger start again would be beneficial, but there is little hope that he would inspire the offense either. Early in the season, Ehlinger made two starts and went winless, including the humiliating loss in New England that ended the reign of previous head coach Frank Reich. Ehlinger is still the backup quarterback because evidently Saturday and the rest of the staff do not believe he can do any better.

Because the rest of the offense is a disaster, none of these quarterbacks are the solution. There are still protection difficulties with the offensive line, tight ends, and running backs. Defenses are sitting on every route because the Colts’ passing strategy and play-calling are so basic. None of the three quarterbacks can improve the offense to a level that would offset these problems.

Unfortunately, the crime cannot be corrected this year. For the Colts to have a reliable attack once more, new coaches and players at crucial spots are required. Expect a lot of the same play from this unit during the next two games up to that point.

JJ Watt announces NFL retirement

JJ Watt is hanging up his boots. On Tuesday (27), the Arizona Cardinals defensive end announced that he is retiring from the NFL, via a post on Twitter.

Advertisements

“Koa’s (defensive end’s daughter) first NFL game, last home game of my career,” wrote the star, posing in photos alongside his daughter and wife, Chicago Red Stars forward Kealia. “My heart is filled with nothing less than love and gratitude. It has been an absolute honor and pleasure.”

A three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year, Watt is a future Hall of Famer. He was the 11th overall pick in the 2011 Draft by the Houston Texans. There, he played until the end of the 2020 season, when he announced his move to Arizona.

In Texas, he played 128 games, including eight for the playoffs, adding 21 more for the Cardinals, one of them for the postseason, in last year’s Wild Card round against the Los Angeles Rams. In all, there are 149 starters on the field, 111.5 sacks, 580 tackles, 191 tackles for loss of yardage, 313 QB hits, one safety, and two interceptions.

When it comes to awards, the list is also extensive. He was three times named AP Defensive Player of the Year (2013, 2015 and 2016), once Walter Payton Man of the Year (2018), 2017 Sportsman of the Year, five times selected to the Pro Bowl (2012 to 2015 and 2018) and six times to the All-Pro team (2012 to 2015 and 2018).
