Every year we give our premium content members a team-by-team, player-by-player look at the NFL season that was. The coverage will be in-depth, but because the Dynasty Capsule series begins immediately after the season, we won’t use it to discuss free agency or the draft. Come see us in early May once Mr. Irrelevant is off the board for another 32-article series giving you the same detailed discussion you’ll see below.
Buckle up dynasty fans, because you’re about to be reminded why our motto is, “There is no off-season.”
Keenum filled in admirably this season after the Vikings lost Sam Bradford to yet again another knee injury. For a journeyman backup making $2 million on a one year contract, he played fantastically. He was highly efficient and played well enough to lead a stacked roster to the NFC Championship game. Finishing the year as fantasy QB15 in points per game with an average of 15.9, Keenum came out of nowhere to become fantasy relevant in super-flex and 2QB leagues.
He has played himself to a BIG payday this off-season as an unrestricted free agent. Many were under the assumption that he’d follow his offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur when the talk was Shurmur heading to Arizona. Now that Shurmur took the New York Giants job, that narrative has all but dried up. The Giants have indicated that they plan on Eli Manning being their starting QB for the 2018 season and could also possibly select a quarterback with the number two overall selection in this year’s draft.
