Can you build a sustainable roster of 53 players? – Athleticism

It was a popular feature last year, so we’re re-enabling it.

Here’s your chance to do a better job in charge of the 49ers than Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch.

Athletic offers you the chance to build a 53-man roster that fits under the salary cap for the 2022 season. Every player has value and it’s up to you to put together a competitive team that doesn’t go over the limit.

You can also think of it as a build-a-roster or DIY for wheelchair GMs.

Our version of this draft will be seen through the lens of the 53-man roster the 49ers will need to finalize by the end of the summer. Keep in mind that the front office frames all off-season transactions with this milestone in mind. Teams can carry up to 90 players on offseason rosters, but the hits of 53 selected players must be below the limit when cutback day arrives.

Open the Google spreadsheet we prepared for the task. It’s easier to manage on desktop, but this link also works on mobile through the Google Sheets app.

To start on the desktop, click on FILE -> MAKE A COPY. To get started on mobile, tap the three dots in the top right, select SHARE & EXPORT, then MAKE A COPY.

Congratulations, you are now the General Manager of the NFL. We will discuss salary later.

For the sake of realism, we have prepared the shell of a 53-player roster from the 49ers in the spreadsheet with players already under contract and with two exclusive free agents – receiver Jauan Jennings and linebacker Demetrius Flannigan – Fowles – which seem like virtual locks to flip.
