The 5 O'Clock Club: All NFC East fantasy team

It’s 5 o’clock somewhere...

The 5 o’clock club aims to provide a forum for reader-driven discussion at a time of day when there isn’t much NFL news being published. Feel free to introduce topics that interest you in the comments below.

Preseason is over and the rosters around the league are set. And while there are some outstanding questions about some injuries and suspensions (looking at you Zeke Elliott, OBJ & Brandon Marshall), barring any fluke injuries cropping up this week, we know who the top quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers are in the league, and we have a fair idea which offenses look potent and which defenses look stout.

You know what that means.

That’s right. It’s fantasy football draft time for just about everybody.

I thought it might be a good day to get away from the harsh realities of the 900 or so players who became unemployed this week, questions about Su’a Cravens’ future and the debate over Scot McCloughan’s legacy.

I decided to put together an all-NFC East fantasy squad, and I’m happy to hear what you think of it, or any comments you have about the upcoming FANTASY season.
