The Highs And Lows Of Being A Top Ranked NBA 2K League Player

Iam thank you because ur visit in the my website with title The Highs And Lows Of Being A Top Ranked NBA 2K League Player. Happy reading

With the legal tampering period set to get underway in a less than a week, and free agency opening on March 14, we rank the top 25 free agents available and predict where they end up….

1. Drew Brees, QB

Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports

Everyone involved is talking as if Brees will be a Saint in 2018, but we’re a week away from free agency and he still doesn’t have a deal. Even at 39, with his arm strength waning, Brees is far and away the best player on this list and would instantly turn any QB-needy team into a playoff contender.

Where he lands: Saints

GM Mickey Loomis and Sean Payton aren’t letting Brees get away from New Orleans. Let’s be serious.

2. Andrew Norwell, OG

Norwell is a nasty run blocker in both zone and gap schemes. He’s not as dominant a pass blocker as the numbers say, but he’s strong and doesn’t make mental mistakes.

Where he lands: Giants

He’ll re-unite with Dave Gettleman in New York and help shore up a Giants offensive line that needs plenty of help.

3. Sammy Watkins, WR

People seem to be sleeping on Watkins, who still has the potential to develop into a true No. 1 receiver. Despite struggling to stay healthy, and playing in less than ideal situations, the 24-year-old has managed to put up some lofty numbers in his young career.

According to @pfref here is the list of receivers to have over 3,000 receiving yards and 25 TDs through their age 24 season.

Where he lands: Panthers

The Panthers don’t have much money to spend this offseason, but the money they do have should be spent on finding Cam Newton a receiver capable of getting separation on the outside.

4. Sheldon Richardson, DT

Richardson didn’t make a whole lot of noise during his one year in Seattle, which is probably a good thing considering the off-field problems he had in New York, but he was still a force against the run and productive as a pass rusher.

Where he lands: Seahawks

With Seattle likely losing Cliff Avril and Michael Bennett this offseason, they’ll need to retain some talent on the defensive line.

5. Kirk Cousins, QB

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Cousins has made strides as a passer over the years. He’s better at creating on his own when a play breaks down now, but his arm strength limitations and inconsistent accuracy makes paying him up to $30 million a risky move. Someone will overpay him, though.

Where he lands: Vikings

The Vikings have money to spend, a stellar supporting cast and a legit chance at winning a Super Bowl next season. Why would Cousins look anywhere else?

6. Allen Robinson, WR

Robinson is coming off a torn ACL, which is always concerning, but he was never a guy who used his speed to get open. Even if he loses a half-step, Robinson will still be a productive player who can win 50/50 balls downfield.

Where he lands: Bears

Chicago has money to spend and is in desperate need of a star wideout. Knowing the draft isn’t loaded with can’t-miss prospects at receiver, the Bears will throw a bunch of money at Robinson.

7. Kyle Fuller, CB

Fuller is tough boundary corner who is comfortable playing off coverage and up in a receiver’s face. Fuller can fit in with a man or zone team thanks to his athleticism and route recognition skills.

Where he lands: 49ers

Fuller fits the 49ers’ scheme and will be looking for a payday the 49ers can provide him with.

8. Trumaine Johnson, CB

A big, physical corner who is at his best when pressed up on a receiver. He’s not great at playing off coverage and is liable to give up big plays every now and then.

Where he lands: Jets

Todd Bowles loves to play press coverage on the outside, and New York has money to spend and a big hole at corner.

9. Malcolm Butler, CB

Bill Belichick’s curious decision to keep Butler on the bench in Super Bowl LII may drive down his price, but the 27-year-old should not be undervalued. On his best day, he’s capable of hanging with the league’s best receivers in man coverage. That’s a rare commodity.

Where he lands: Buccaneers

With Brent Grimes likely on his way out, the Bucs replace him with another undersized boundary corner who can hang with opposing No. 1 receivers.

10. Nate Solder, LT

The 2017 season wasn’t Solder’s best, but it’s rare that a legit starting left tackle makes it to free agency, so he’ll get paid. The team that lands him will get a left tackle who it can plug into the starting lineup and not worry about all season.

Where he lands: Cardinals

Arizona could make a hard run at Cousins, which would prevent them from nabbing Solder, but if the Cards decide it’s better to pursue a QB in the draft, they’ll give Solder a look.

11. Sam Bradford, QB

When healthy, Bradford is the best quarterback not named Drew Brees available this offseason. He’s got the biggest arm of any of the free agent quarterbacks and is the most accurate outside of Brees. None of that matters if Bradford can’t get on the field, and he’ll have a hard time convincing a team he can play a full 16-game season.

Where he lands: Browns

Hue Jackson says he wants a veteran quarterback even if the team uses a high pick on a quarterback. How about Bradford? If he stays healthy, Cleveland gets an above average starter and finally solves its long-standing QB problem. If not, they have the rookie to fall back on.

12. Justin Pugh, OG

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Pugh battled injuries throughout 2017, and it showed on the field. But when he’s healthy, the 27-year-old can give a team elite-level guard play and solid play at right tackle. Some team will pay a lot of money for that versatility.

Where he lands: Titans

Tennessee has plenty of cap space to spend and a need at guard with both of their starters headed for the open market.

13. Morgan Burnett, S

Burnett is never going to be a star safety, but any team would be lucky to have him. He can play in the box, cover slot receivers and is solid when asked to drop deep.

Where he lands: Buccaneers

The Bucs aren’t done fixing their secondary. Burnett would give them a quality safety — something Tampa hasn’t had since the days of John Lynch — who can play multiple roles in Mike Smith’s defense.

14. Muhammad Wilkerson, DE

I hesitated to put Wilkerson this high on the list, and my hesitation has nothing to do with his talent. When motivated, the former Jet is a dominant end. After getting paid in New York, Wilkerson just stopped trying, though. Will a change of scenery re-invigorate him? If it does, the team that lands him is getting tremendous value.

Where he lands: Packers

This is the perfect landing spot for Wilkerson. He gets to play for a winning organization and reunite with former coach Mike Pettine. Green Bay doesn’t splurge on free agents, but Wilkerson should come at a reduced price after how things ended in New York.

15. Bashaud Breeland, CB

If you’re looking for a No. 1 corner, Breeland isn’t your guy. But he can be a high-end No. 2 who is capable of playing man or zone coverage. He does a good job of sticking to receivers and making a plays on the ball.

Where he lands: Browns

If the Browns are set on taking a quarterback and Saquon Barkley in the draft, they’ll have to use their endless supply of cap space to address the cornerback position in free agency. They can afford to pay Breeland and still land a true No. 1 corner.

16. Weston Richburg, C

After a bright start to his career, Richburg has been inconsistent over the last few seasons and was placed on IR after suffering a concussion in 2017. He’s only 26, and has enough good tape to warrant big money on the open market.

Where he lands: 49ers

After spending record money on Jimmy Garoppolo, the 49ers need to make sure he’s protected and the center position was a major weak spot for them a year ago. They have enough money to outbid any other team that comes in for Richburg.

17. Eric Reid, S

Sergio Estrada-USA TODAY Sports

Reid is a versatile box safety with some coverage skills. Concussions have been a big problem throughout his career but he remained healthy in 2017.

Where he lands: Saints

The Saints are always good for a splash signing that nobody sees coming. Reid could be that signing this year. He would give New Orleans what the departing Kenny Vaccaro couldn’t.

18. Jimmy Graham, TE

Graham disappeared in the Seahawks’ inconsistent offense but did show signs of being the red zone threat he was in New Orleans. At 31, his better days are behind him but he can be an impact player.

Where he lands: Texans

The Texans have had a need at tight end for about five years now, and they’ll have money to spend in free agency after last year’s exodus. Graham joining DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller would make the Houston passing game downright scary.

19. Dontari Poe, DT

Poe’s name is probably a little bigger than his game at this point, but he’s a three-down nose tackle and that’s rare in today’s game. He won’t be a dominant player, though.

Where he lands: Redskins

Solid is good enough for a Redskins defensive line that needs help on the interior of the defensive line. They have enough money to overpay for Poe.

20. Carlos Hyde, RB

Hyde doesn’t offer much in the passing game, which lowers his value in this age of the dual threat back, but he’s a talented runner who will improve a team’s running game.

Where he lands: Jets

The Jets need a running back and have plenty of money to spend this offseason. New offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates comes from the Shanahan coaching tree, so Hyde will have familiarity with his offense.

21. E.J. Gaines, CB

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Despite battling injuries throughout 2017 — that’s nothing new for Gaines — he proved to be a top-level coverage corner. He’s not going to give his new team much run defense, but that’s not what teams are paying corners to do anyway.

Where he lands: Colts

The Colts have enough money to get in on the bigger names at corner, but with a deep draft class at the position, they can afford to pass up the first tier guys to find better value.

22. Dion Lewis, RB

Lewis is an underrated runner who can line up on the outside as a receiver and win against safeties.

Where he lands: 49ers

Yep, another free agent landing in San Francisco. Lewis is going to be looking for a smart coach who will be able to take advantage of his skill set. That sounds an awful lot like Kyle Shanahan.

23. Tyler Eifert, TE

Eifert says he’s fully healthy, but what do you expect him to say? If he is finally over his injury issues, he has top-five tight end potential.

Where he lands: Jaguars

Blake Bortles needs more weapons, and Eifert is exactly the type of low risk, high reward signing the Jags need to explore now that they’ve paid their quarterback and have some key players headed for big paydays down the road.

24. Nigel Bradham, LB

Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

Bradham isn’t going to transform a defense, but he’s a three-down linebacker who won’t be taken advantage of in coverage. He’ll get paid.

Where he lands: 49ers

The 49ers need help at linebacker and Bradham fits Robert Saleh’s scheme having played in a similar one in Philadelphia.

25. Junior Galette, DE

You won’t see Galette on a lot of “top free agents” lists, but the mercurial pass rusher played good football in a reserve role for the Redskins. With a dearth of pass rushing options in this year’s free agent class, Galette could garner interest from several teams.

Where he lands: Lions

Detroit slapped Ziggy Ansah with the tag, but defensive end remains a big need for a team that finished 20th in sacks last season.
