All TSG Team Season 3

by Bo | 6 months ago | 0 Comments

QB- Kyle Lauletta - It's really hard to see a passer with less than 4000 yards here but when you lead the league in touchdown-to-interception ratio while tossing up the most touchdowns across the league its well deserved. For the major part of the preseason New York's head coach touted Kyle as TSG's best. Boy did he back up his coach with this performance.

RB- Devonta Freeman- TDs... check, Yards...check, Versatility...check. This man was the most reliable back in the league by far and away. The Falcons offense went as Freeman went even when Matty Ice went down for a couple games Devonta Freeman kept the O on schedule. TSGs best back

RB- Saquon Barkley- Most will wonder why Todd Gurley was leaped by Barkley here but a closer look at the numbers clears things up. Barkley Missed 3 games this year and still finished 3rd in rushing, despite only running 160 times, largely due to his ridiculous average per carry. Each hand off to Saquon resulted in nearly seven yards. 

Wr- Breshard Perriman- Im out of things to say about the Hall of Famer. Stats: 1766 yds (1st)
74 catches (2nd) 22 TDs (1st...by far)

Wr- Julio Jones- While no longer a high-volume catch type of receiver Julio Jones still remains a red zone monster and a big play threat each and every down. Clear to see why he was the number one target in the off-season for the Patriots. Made life a whole lot easier for Drew Lock.

Wr- Amari Cooper- 2nd in receiving, both yds and catches, puts Cooper here and I am sure hes here to stay. Been on the list for the past 2 years and I dont see it slowing. Need to improve on his Touchdown production to see a climb up the list.

Wr- Calvin Ridley- I know I can find one person that was happy to see Julio depart for New England. Calvin Ridley absolutely ate up Julio's production in Atlanta. A true case of addition by subtraction.

TE- David Njoku- An absolute matchup nightmare for defenses this year. Led all tight ends with 10 touchdown receptions and finished second amongst the group in yards with 967.

LT-  Tyron Smith- Best man on agruably the leagues best offensive line. Paved the road for the 3rd best rushing offense and gave up the least pressures from the Left Tackle spot.

LG- Connor Williams- Maybe he benefited from lining up beside the most dominant lineman and TSG. But Connor only gave up two sacks all year. And that Cowboys running game was the NFCs 2nd best. 

C- Travis Fredrick- OK this is a trend. 2 sacks and 814 sowns played. The Dallas Cowboys have not arguably but unequivocally The leagues best offensive line and has its captain and signal caller listed as TSGs best. 

RG- Nick Martin- Narrowly beats out Zack Martin for this spot but only giving up a single sack in over 830 (447 passes) plays is astonishing. Graded out as the best right guard in the league.

RT-  Kolton Miller- Some people's trash can be other people's Treasures. This is yet another strong case to support that proverb. Seen as a weak link on the Raiders offensive line. Kolton comes over to the Tennessee Titans and becomes it's most consistent pass-blocker since Michael Roos. Grades as the best right tackle by a wide margin. 3 sacks and 805 downs played. 

LE- Carl Granderson- Gentleman....your League MVP!!!!!! 29 sacks was good enough to shatter the sack record held by Carl Lawson. A repeat from last year and I'm sure a future repeat for many many years to come. "Grandmama" was able to be the most impactful player across the league from the defensive end position. Not since Aaron daughter has there been such a presence.

DT- Ed Oliver- 75 tackles and 21 run stuffs are INSANE accomplishments let alone for them to be done by a defensive tackle. Match that with 13 sacks and you may have the beginning of that wall Donald Trump is trying to build. For an entire season I don't think anyone was able to gain anything up the middle with Oliver lined up on the other side.

DT- DJ Reader- Leads all defensive tackles with 15 sacks and 4 forced fumbles. With Watt and Clowney missing several games this year DJ was able to pick the slack up and flourish in their absence. 

RE- Tak McKinley- NFC's sack leader with 27 sacks was good enough to lead all RDEs this season. Tak was one of the biggest reasons that the Falcons defense was number one statistically in nearly every category and led the entire league in qb takedowns. 

LOLB- Tremaine Edmunds- It's been a long while since we have seen this kind of versatility from this position group. There's plenty of guys with a lot of interceptions or a lot of sacks but not many with a lot of both. At 6ft 5 and 250 lb this Behemoth runs like a gazelle and hits like a Mack truck. 

MLB- Jordan Hicks- with 19 tackles for loss, leading his position, is this ferocious downhill Defender. Getting to the quarterback 11 times and disrupting his passing lanes with 5 interception Jordan Hicks was a "Nightmare on 11th Street" for opposing signal callers.

MLB- Roquan Smith- Might we need to consider Hall of Fame when the name Roquan Smith is mentioned? A 3x straight member of the all TSG team. That Chicago defense is in great hands for years to come. Somehow he managed to up is his game from last year with 93 tackles 15 for loss 16 sacks and 4 picks

ROLB- Deion Jones- Best player and the leader of the League's very best defense. 9 interceptions is good enough to lead all ROLB. The speed display all year by Jones was breathtaking to watch for many. Deion could run with receivers (9 pbu's) and break through the line without being touched shown by his 11 run stuffs in 5 sacks.

CB- Jalen Ramsey- continues to hold down his spot as the best corner in TSG. Led the entire league in pass deflections (18) and finished second in interceptions with 9. Strong guy who loves to come up and make plays and the running game as well. Shown by his five tfl's a 66 tackles.

CB- AJ Bouye- Not as physical as Ramsey or Dunbar but a shutdown nonetheless. Crazy to think that at one point both Ramsey and Bouye were in the same secondary.

CB- Quinton Dunbar- Big Physical Corner bursts on the scene this year with his play. Tied for the league lead with 9 interceptions to go with 14 break ups and a tough 60 tackles. Rare to see a guy with a lot of interceptions and breakups. He was tested a lot and it looks like he passed with flying colors.

FS- Minkah Fitzpatrick- Finally Jesse Bates has been supplanted as TSG's best free safety. The race was actually close between Fitzpatrick and Logan Ryan. However Minkah Fitzpatrick was able to make a few more splash plays defensively and get in that end zone one more time then Logan to take the crown. With the speed to run with anyone, strength to bring anyone down and smarts to read and react to any play. There is nothing on the field that Minkah Fitzpatrick cannot do.

SS- Jaquiski Tartt- It looks as though the torch has been passed from Eric Berry to this young man on the Kansas City defense. Plays that we were prone to seeing Barry make were made regularly by Tartt. Led all SS with 8 ints. 

K- Stephen Hauschka

P- Marquette King

Returner- JJ Jones
