Who are the best players on the USFL’s Tampa Bay Bandits? Who played in the NFL?

The Tampa Bay Bandits look like the clear favorites to win the USFL Championship in 2022.

The Tampa Bay Bandits will be one of the eight teams to play this season in the USFL. The Bandits are led by head coach Todd Haley, who spent a ton of time in the NFL as both a head coach and offensive coordinator. Tampa Bay will open the season Sunday, April 17 against the Pittsburgh Maulers.

Who played in the NFL?

QB Jordan Ta’amu
RB BJ Emmons
WR Rashard Davis
WR Derrick Willies
WR Derrick Dillon
WR Jordan Lasley
TE De’Quan Hampton
OT Tyler Catalina
OT Corbin Kaufusi
DE Adam Schuler
LB Christian Sam

Prediction for most productive offensive player

The Bandits have a good set of offensive playmakers in relation to the other teams in the league and a good play caller in Haley. That should lead to quarterback Jordan Ta’amu sitting in a good position to put up numbers. Add in that fact that Ta’amu is a good rushing QB and it’s hard to overlook him as possibly the best fantasy QB in the league.
