CDL 2022 roster leaks & predictions
Note: All of these are speculative and not yet confirmed.
Atlanta FaZe roster
There is no reason to expect FaZe to make many, if any, changes as they look to start on the foundations of a dynasty and defend their title in 2022. All four starters are contracted through next year and the only change may come from the bench if the Surge follow through on reported plans to buy out Sib.
Chicago OpTic roster
In all likelihood, Chicago won’t be Chicago come the 2022 season. With Envy rumored to buy out OpTic and create a Dallas/OpTic superteam, NRG will likely look to sell their league slot, currently held in Chicago. If the merger happens, Dallas will likely take control of OpTic’s remaining roster assets in Scump and Dashy, meaning whatever Chicago becomes could have a brand-new lineup.
One possible buyer for the Chicago slot could be RISE Nation, with CEO Rodger Saffold expressing a desire to bring back the org’s famous Call of Duty team during an appearance on the Bussin’ With The Boys podcast.
Dallas Empire roster
As mentioned above, Empire are likely to pick up the remains of Chicago’s roster when the rumored buyout of OpTic goes through. This could mean Dallas fields a terrifying team of Shotzzy, iLLeY, Scump, and Dashy in 2022.
Florida Mutineers roster
London Royal Ravens roster
Royal Ravens dropped everyone except SMG Afro on August 29. Zer0 is expected to return after being cut by the team earlier in 2021. Nastie, who has been playing at challenger, is also expected to return to London after being cut in 2020. Nastie’s Atlas Lions teammate Gismo is also believed to be headed to the Royal Ravens.

Doubt either team has officially signed anyone. If I hear about either team changing, I’ll update.
