New York Giants defensive end Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is set to join the league.
He was one of the NFL’s elite defensive players for years, and it seems he’s been given a pass from the league to pursue a career in the business.
As the new season of fantasy football begins, let’s take a look at how Rodgers-Martin, the third-round pick in last year’s draft, is looking to build a fantasy team.
A defensive end who is one of NFL’s top-rated players in 2017, Rodgers-Bartel will look to lead his team to a victory in 2019.
The 27-year-old will join a Lions defense that already boasts a strong pass rush and will need all the help they can get to make it a playoff run.
Rodgers-Bertel, a 6-foot-2, 270-pound defensive end, was one a player who many thought would be in line for a huge breakout in 2019, when he was selected in the first round.
He finished the season ranked third in the NFL in sacks (22), third in tackles for loss (36) and sixth in quarterback pressures (27.5).
The Lions, however, were able to find a way to make up for those deficiencies with a defense that featured two of the league’s top defensive linemen in Ezekiel Ansah and Luke Joeckel.
Ansah is a three-time Pro Bowler, Joecke is in his sixth season in the league and the Lions have had the league leader in sacks in each of the last three seasons.
Rodger-MARTIN will be looking to lead the Lions defense to a win in 2019 on the field.
