53-man roster projection {Game}


stitches
 Share

Recommended Posts

Well, here we go. We did that last year and @holeymoley99won the game. I'm calling for him to defend his title. :) 

 

So here are the rules of the game:

 

You post your 53-man roster projection. This is AFTER we make final cuts and BEFORE we claim other teams' waived/cut players. 

 

You will have 3 different tiers in your 53 man roster projection:

- surefire spot on the roster - you can choose 20 players for that one... For every player you selected in this tier who doesn't make the roster, you get a penalty of 10 points

- likely spot on the roster - you can choose 20 players in that tier... if a player you selected doesn't make the roster, you get a penalty of 3 points

- bubble spots - those are the final 13 players that will make the cut - if a player you selected doesn't make the roster, you get a penalty of 1 point

 

The person with fewest penalty points wins the game. 

 

Bonus "Trade": Every contestant has the right to guess one trade that happens before cut down date. You get -3 penalty points if you guess a trade correct(you don't need to guess destination or compensation, just what player will get traded). You also have the option to guess - "no trade" and if the Colts make no trade, you get -3 penalty points to your score. 

 

The winner of the game gets the amazing award of .... bragging rights. :yahoo::rock::cheers:

 

You can find the full list of players on the Colts roster page here: https://www.colts.com/team/players-roster/

 

From what I'm reading the 53-man roster cut down date is August 31st(Tuesday), but the final pre-season game which is on Friday, 27th of August. I'm putting a deadline of Sunday 29th of August, 11:59 pm.

I've just come back to tinker with this and I can't edit the post above this, so don't take that as my entry! I'll tinker away in the background on a separate document and post before deadline.

I'm going to tinker here in a bit too. Wanted to see the latest depth chart before I posted... Not really any changes lol, so no help.

Don't you mean predicting the 53 man roster AFTER you're down to 80 players and before we get to 53? If you wait until after final cuts all you're doing is predicting waiver claims after final cuts.  And given Ballard's history he will pick someone up and you won't guess it.

    • QB 3
    • RB 3
    • WR 6
    • TE 3
    • OL 9
    • Note - Would not be shocked at all to se an extra RB, TE, or OL.

    • » QB (3): Carson Wentz, Jacob Eason, Sam Ehlinger
      • Cut - Brett Hundley
    • » RB (3): Jonathan Taylor, Marlon Mack, Nyheim Hines
      • Cut - Jordan Wilkins, Benny LeMay, Deon Jackson
      • Note - If we have to keep extra OL due to injury concerns, Wilkins is a casualty. LeMay should make it to the PS if Wilkins doesn't, and LeMay has proven capable.
    • » Z/Traditional slot WR (2) : T.Y. Hilton, Parris Campbell
      • Cut - DeMichael Harris, 
    • » X-WR (2) : Michael Pittman Jr., Mike Strachan

      • Cut - Farrod Green,  Noah Togiai, Jordan Thomas
    • » LT (2) : Will Holden, Sam Tevi
      • PUP - Eric Fisher* - If EF starts the season on PUP, he can't practice or play the first 6 weeks, so gotta believe they're going to try and get him off PUP prior Game 1.
      • Cut - Sam Tevi (if not early, then as soon as Fisher is back to form)
    • » LG (2) : Quenton Nelson, Chris Reed
    • » C (2) : Ryan Kelly, Danny Pinter
      • Cut - Joey Hunt
    • » RG (1): Mark Glowinski,
      • Cut -  Jake Eldrenkamp (will stay if Q isn't back week 1), Will Fries
    • » RT (2): Braden Smith, Julién Davenport (will start at LT though if Fisher is not back)
      • Cut - Carter O'Donnell

 

  • DEFENSE
    • » DE1 (3): Kwity Paye, Kemoko Turay, Ben Banogu
    • » DE2 (3): Tyquan Lewis, Al-Quadin Muhammed, Isaac Rochell
      • Cut - Kameron Cline
      • PUP - Dayo Odeyingbo
      • Note - Rochell's tweener value (similar to Autry and Lewis), will earn him a spot.
    • » DT (2) : DeForest Buckner, Andrew Brown
    • » NT (1) : Grover Stewart, 
      • Cut - Taylor Stallworth, Chris Williams, Antwaun Woods
    • » WLB: Darius Leonard, E.J. Speed, Malik Jefferson, 
    • » MLB: Bobby Okereke
    • » SAM: Zaire Franklin, Matthew Adams, Isaiah Kaufusi
      • Cut - Jordan Glasgow, Curtis Bolton
      • Note - We kept 7 last year, I think we will again this year (ST's value). I think Kaufusi stole Glasgow's spot.

Why is everyone trying to kick wilkins off the team lol. He is way to valuable. You want him in case of injury also. Colts always keep 4.

 

I am beginning to think we might be able to get Ehlinger to the PS. That could save a spot.

 

Because Dulin would make it through waivers pit him on the PS and see how Patmon does on ST. You can always bring Dulin back up if he struggled.

Lewis will be the other starting end. What makes you think he only has a likely spot. He is a for sure as are Doyle and some others you have listed. How can your only kicker and punter only be likely.

You can only have 20 guys as surefire. There were plenty more I would have put there but you can't. Maybe he slipped his mind and he didn't want to go back and change it? Would imagine that 99% of peoples top 40 will make it on to the roster.

I didn't see the OP rules either. 

I'd say the 20 surefire is a low number for a rule though, given we know pretty much the starters everywhere (which would equate to 25 locks more or less). Sure there are a few position battles for a couple starting slots (really only CB2), but that just means that both are pretty much locks or sure fire.

Well, here we go. We did that last year and @holeymoley99won the game. I'm calling for him to defend his title. :) 

 

So here are the rules of the game:

 

You post your 53-man roster projection. This is AFTER we make final cuts and BEFORE we claim other teams' waived/cut players. 

 

You will have 3 different tiers in your 53 man roster projection:

- surefire spot on the roster - you can choose 20 players for that one... For every player you selected in this tier who doesn't make the roster, you get a penalty of 10 points

- likely spot on the roster - you can choose 20 players in that tier... if a player you selected doesn't make the roster, you get a penalty of 3 points

- bubble spots - those are the final 13 players that will make the cut - if a player you selected doesn't make the roster, you get a penalty of 1 point

 

The person with fewest penalty points wins the game. 

 

Bonus "Trade": Every contestant has the right to guess one trade that happens before cut down date. You get -3 penalty points if you guess a trade correct(you don't need to guess destination or compensation, just what player will get traded). You also have the option to guess - "no trade" and if the Colts make no trade, you get -3 penalty points to your score. 

 

The winner of the game gets the amazing award of .... bragging rights. :yahoo::rock::cheers:

 

You can find the full list of players on the Colts roster page here: https://www.colts.com/team/players-roster/

 

From what I'm reading the 53-man roster cut down date is August 31st(Tuesday), but the final pre-season game which is on Friday, 27th of August. I'm putting a deadline of Sunday 29th of August, 11:59 pm. 

 

 

How does PUP factor in?

Only the 53 on the roster count. PUP is separate. PUP=not on 53. Partly why I am putting Fisher in the borderline - for the off chance he gets put on PUP.

Got it.  Thank you!

 

Here's what I found on PUP (two different kinds), and IR (changed last year).

 

"The PUP has different rules during training camp and during the regular season. During training camp, players can be placed on the PUP for football-related injuries at any time without penalty. Teams can move the player to the active roster as soon as he is able to participate. Because this allows for greater flexibility on the roster, you will often see teams utilizing the PUP more freely. As soon as these players are healthy, they are activated to the roster and they can be treated like any other player on the roster.

 

After the preseason ends, the PUP operates a bit differently. If a player is placed on the PUP entering the season, he is required to sit out for a minimum of six weeks. At that point, teams have an additional five weeks where they can decide whether or not to allow the player to begin practicing. Once a player begins practicing, teams then have 21 days to decide whether or not they will activate the player to the 53-man active roster. If the player does not begin practicing within five weeks, or they are not activated to the 53-man roster within 21 days after they begin practicing, he will have to remain on the PUP list for the rest of the season.

 

A second commonly used injury designation is the Injured Reserve list, or the IR. Over the last several years, there used to be two types of IR. The first type of IR was used for players who are done for the year due to injury. Once placed on IR, the player is ineligible to return for the rest of the season, so it’s common to see players placed on IR after season-ending injuries like ACL tears. Each team was also allowed to use the ‘IR/Designated for Return’ tag on three players each season after they spent a minimum of eight weeks on IR. As the name implies, this player is eligible to return within the season.

 

Last season, which was played during the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic, the NFL changed its rules regarding injured reserve. The league did away with the limited number of IR/Designated for Return tags and decided to make this injury designation unlimited. Under the new league rules, players who land on IR are now eligible to return to the field after three weeks as opposed to eight weeks. Once a team activates a player from injured reserve, it has 21 days to return that player to the active roster.

 

In addition to the ‘normal’ IR for players dealing with injury, the NFL implemented the Covid-IR list in 2020 for players testing positive for coronavirus or those that were considered close contacts to those who have tested positive for the virus. The NFL will roll this over into 2021, and unlike the IR for injured players, those that land on the Covid-IR are eligible to return as soon as they clear the league’s protocol."

      • Cut - Jordan Wilkins, Benny LeMay, Deon Jackson
      • Note - If we have to keep extra OL due to injury concerns, Wilkins is a casualty. LeMay should make it to the PS if Wilkins doesn't, and LeMay has proven capable.

      • PUP - Eric Fisher* - If EF starts the season on PUP, he can't practice or play the first 6 weeks, so gotta believe they're going to try and get him off PUP prior Game 1.
      • Cut - Sam Tevi (if not early, then as soon as Fisher is back to form)

      • Cut - Kameron Cline
      • PUP - Dayo Odeyingbo
      • Note - Rochell's tweener value (similar to Autry and Lewis), will earn him a spot.

I think Rochell will make it but sometimes im not so sure. At times they tend to play him in the 2nd half of games between the 3rd and 4th quarter as if hes on the bubble

I'm not sure either. I think his fate is probably tied a lot to how well the coaches like Brown (3T). Definitely on the bubble.

 

Both had decent games vs MN. Rochell had a great game though (led the team in Ts and had a QB hit) vs Carolina. 

 

Overall, I like Rochell's experience a lot more, and also his tweener value. He came from a funky system, so really hard to tell. Just not sure we have another guy right now that can flex from DE to 3T like he can (to back up Lewis).

Most difficult cut down day I can remember several close to 50/50

 

1)Barely had Patmon over Dulin and Harris and still not sure how bad Dez injury is yet

 

2)Kaufusi over Glasgow who had a nice last game after being quite for weeks and Jefferson who had  most snaps opening game and a very good camp

 

3)Pitner over Hunt again not sure how bad Pittner's injury is

 

4)Brown over Woods,Stallworth and Williams

 

5)Chachere over Tell

 

6)Shawn Davis over Sean Davis

 

7)Wilkins over Jackson

 

Too early to tell if Hilton done for season, may know more tomorrow but until then think he sticks initially then stashed on I.R.

 

I'll either defend my title or crown a worthy successor in a couple days. Really enjoy this contest and do as much research as possible as Im sure many others do as well. 

 

Thanks to Stitches for hosting it
