In RSO, which one would you franchise tag?

Postby DynastyDynasty » Thu Apr 26, 2018 11:33 am

I have 14 guys under contract, and 5 rookie picks. We have to fill our rosters to 25. After I tag one, I'll be at 20/25, with 1 of the 5 I need being a kicker. So, 4 skill players. I have $73M in cap space out of a $177M cap. Which one would you franchise tag?

Jimmy Garoppolo for $17M - other QB is Derek Carr for $8.5M


LAR D/ST for $4.5M - no other D/ST, easily the best D/ST available, heavy D/ST scoring

Does Carr scare you enough into tagging Garoppolo and leaving $56M for the free agent auction? Or should I just lock down LAR with the heavy D/ST scoring and call it good?

You logic is very sound. Lock up that D which might be a league winner. In a single QB league other teams probably have QBs under contract and you might be able to offer Jimmy G more years at a better price point.
