The 46 that dress out the first game. (1 Viewer)

Only 46 players can dress out for the Raiders game in 19 days.
3 of them are K, P and LS, respectfully.
Barth and Forbath are very even as far as I can tell.
Morstead is as good as they come and I hope Drescher is healthy as he's extremely important to the team.

That leaves the offense and defense with 21 or 22 each.

On offense, I think Brandon Coleman is in a tight race with Tommylee at the moment and I don't have Marcus Murphy making the dressing out cut but they both might make the 53. Cadet, Hightower and the number of offensive linemen we roll with is a guess. I believe Landon Turner could make the 53 as well but I'm doubtful he dresses out the first game.

1. Drew Brees
2. Luke Mccown
3. Mark Ingram
4. CJ Spiller
5. Daniel Lasco
6. Tim Hightower
7. John Kuhn
8. Brandin Cooks
9. Willie Snead
10. Michael Thomas
11. Tommylee Lewis
12. Coby Fleener
13. Michael Hoomanawanui
14. Josh Hill
15. Terron Armstead
16. Zach Strief
17. Andrus Peat
18. Tony Hills
19. Senio Kelemete
20. Tim Lelito
21. Max Unger
22. Jack Allen

On defense, the secondary is tricky. I don't have Roman Harper, Erik Harris, Cortland Finnegan or the Dixon twins dressing out.
Up front the decision between Ashaad Mabry and David Onyemata is a tough one as well. Whoever it is likely stops dressing out once Rankins is back.

1. Cam Jordan
2. Bobby Richardson
3. Obum Gwachum
4. Tyeler Davison
5. Nick Fairley
6. John Jenkins
7. David Onyemata
8. Stephone Anthony
9. Kasim Edebali
10. Dannell Ellerbe
11. James Laurinaitis
12. Craig Robertson
13. Nathan Stupar
14. Michael Mauti
15. Delvin Breaux
16. PJ Williams
17. Damian Swann
18. De’Vante Harris
19. Ken Crawley
20. Jairus Byrd
21. Kenny Vacarro
22. Vonn Bell

I think most all of these mentioned will make the 53 but chosing the ones that dress out and play against the Raiders is a tough task.

Here I sit one over... and I have no clue who to mark off.

This is just my best guess... be sure to let me know your thoughts on where you think I'm wrong. :idunno:

I would sub out Ken Crawley for Eric Harris. Other than that, I think you are spot on. I wish Grayson could beat out McCown, not because I don't like McCown, but because it would mean Grayson is progressing. However, I'm not sure if that is going to happen this year; still holding out hope though!

Whoever is nicked up often determines who sits for the games.

I think McCown is cut and brought back so many salary isn't guaranteed.

I see calls for Roman Harper and Erik Harris but I'm already one over. I guess Crawley could sit for one of them. Who else though?
Does Tommylee make it over Coleman?
McCown vs Grayson as the dressed backup against the Raiders is no contest for me at this point.

I would change DeVante' Harris and insert Eric Harris. Eric Harris has to be there. Grayson over McCown.
