In a series of tweets following the news about the 2019 player contract status‘, the Washington Justice confirmed to fans that three of their players who are currently under contract would be returning for the 2020 season. Those players are Corey “Corey” Nigra and the Swedish tank duo of Elliot “ELLIVOTE” Vaneryd and Lukas “LullSiSH” Wiklund.

This post claims that the three players listed are staying for the coming season, but carefully does not indicate where the remaining players will end up. As of now, only Ethan “Stratus” Yankel and Gido “Gido” Moon have Team Options, the rest of the Justice will become free agents on October 7, when free agency officially begins.
Locking down these three players makes it appear as if the Justice will move to a Western-leaning roster in 2020. With the full list of free agents now released, who will the Justice look to for their support line and the remaining DPS slots?
As a reminder, all of the current offseason changes will be continuously updated in TGH’s Complete List of Overwatch League Offseason Moves.
