2021 Keeper Selections

Julio Jones
Top 15 WR (2015 Franchise Tag)
Julio is eternal. 2021 is his 9th consecutive keeper ceremony as a Horseman, and there is no sense in camp that he will ever play for another team. He took a step back in 2021 with a nagging hamstring injury, but is set for a big comeback season – regardless of his NFL team.

Michael Thomas
Top 15 WR
His return to the Horsemen wasn’t quite what anyone had imagined. He quickly hit the IR after a week and wasn’t himself even in a brief return post-Brees. Another candidate for comeback player of the year in this year’s keeper class, with most of them inactive for the majority of 2020.

Courtland Sutton
Outside Top 15 WR
There were high hopes that Sutton would emerge as a top 12 receiver in 2020 – but those hopes were dashed quickly with a season ending injury to start the year. The team is counting on his full recovery in 2021 and a return to the stud receiver in the making we saw the year before.

Will Fuller
Outside Top 15 WR
Fuller was an absolute stud in 2020 before a suspension ended his season early. He should take over the most targets in Miami, and has massive upside potential.

Antonio Gibson
Top 15 RB
The Horsemen got a steal in the middle of the 2nd round, taking former wide receiver Antonio Gibson. After only 10 starts, he would breach the top 25 Horsemen of all time – and would show up with the 6th best RB game of all-time in week 12 (34.1). This is only the beginning.

D’Andre Swift
Top 15 RB
Swift looks to build on his 2020 successes with the releases of Adrian Peterson and Kerryon Johnson. He only earned 4 starts in his rookie campaign with the Horsemen, but should take on a more instrumental role this year in the triumphant return of the franchise.
