Opportunity is king in projecting fantasy football production. Here is a look at the overly strong and weak NFL depth charts at each skill position and what potential cut players could quickly find 53-man roster spots elsewhere, continuing with the wide receiver position:
The typical NFL roster keeps three tight ends
POTENTIAL SHUFFLE PLAYERS
Will Tye: The former Giants starter for a moment in time is now fighting for a roster spot in New England. Tye is not likely to be in the top-3 and could provide veteran depth elsewhere.
Jets Tight Ends: New York has five challengers for their top-3 and it looks like Eric Tomlinson and Neal Sterling have most consistently run with the first team. Jordan Leggett is intriguing after missing his rookie year, but clearly behind Tomlinson and Sterling at a minimum. Clive Walford could be a cut as well with the team liking rookie, but dinged up, Christopher Herndon.
Maxx Williams: With the Ravens drafting Hayden Hurst and Mark Andrews within the top-100 this year and Nick Boyle seeing consistent time with the starters, the Top 3 looks stable. That means Williams, an underachiever and durability-challenged former Round 2 pick, is fighting for a roster spot this year. With Hurst out 3-4 weeks with a foot procedure, Williams may have a better shot to start the season on the roster.
Stephen Anderson: He saw notable playing time last season, clearly looks buried with Ryan Griffin the starter and rookies Jordan Akins (more receiver) and Jordan Thomas (more blocker) seeing time with the time and over Anderson this preseason.
