IDP Frequently Asked Questions

Recommended Posts

This Forum has grown exponentially over the past three seasons and many of the same strategy and concept questions frequently come up in the main forum. With our penchant for running off on tangents and the inability of the search function to do search three letter words like IDP, 3-4, and WLB, it's nearly impossible for newer members to find the best discussions over the past months-years.

So here's a quick FAQ generated from recent Forum posts.

This is in no way meant to discourage newbie questions. We were all newbies once and there's plenty of things not covered below. Start a new topic or bump the old one if you want some clarifications or new information. Hopefully it can serve to bump our discussion and traffic still further.

Have fun.

Yeah, I considered that but since it's subscriber-only and the strength of this forum goes way beyond staff posts and comments, I left it (and other staff content) out.

Hopefully our subscribers know how to get to our IDP (and dynasty) content. If I'm off base here, let me know so we can improve notification and access. And many of the IDP staff are well represented in the linked Forum threads. We'll be happy to tell the newbies where they can find the full extent of our pre-season and regular season efforts. :D

Recent subscriber articles will have highlighted links in the pinned Friday Blitz thread. Tomorrow's thread will highlight Norton's EOTG update and my IDP/dynasty strategy article along with a couple of others.

IDP Consensus threads would be good as they are now unpinned.

I don't know. The voting in those threads was done prior to free agency and the draft and I'd imagine it'd look much different today. For example, I think a player like Will Witherspoon would be voted much higher than 29 and DeMeco Ryans would certainly make the list. There were an excellent addition to the Forum in March as a starting point for the offseason but I think they're too dated now to be considered reliable.I'm curious, why do you think they should be added to this list of links?

I had forgotten when they were done. After bumping, I saw the dates. :wall:I just thought it might be a good point for lots of the folks in initial dynasty drafts to see where the guys they got were thought of earlier in the year.(edit) It turns out it's on the pinned list in the Shark Pool, anyway.

Ya know Jean we hear so much anymore about interchangable safety's. I have always favored the SS over the FS as it is one of the basic fundamentals of IDP. As the CB value needed adjusted due to cover-2, I think we may need to take a look at the FS. I did a little study this week. I went to NFL gameboook and took all the starting SS and FS (with the exception of NYJ, they did not differentiate, just listed them a S) talleyed up their stats, and the numbers are a bit surprising.

Darn lost all my formatting trying to paste. I'll send the excel file to ya e-mail if ya like.

With teams interchanging the safety's, we may need to re-think the SS value over the FS.

Tried it again, worked better this way. Nah still sux

I haven't been ignoring this, just saving it for my weekly mailbag. ;)

Probably worth increasing the sample size at year's end to see how it ends up with less variance, but here's an excerpt from this week's subscriber column.

While there are a few sampling issues with that data set, the larger question is still valid. I think the correct answer is that a true IDP shark shouldn’t trust general guidelines but instead look deeper into schemes and responsibilities to make the best decisions on safety prospects. There are too many specialists and scheme variations to routinely say that a SS is clearly better than a FS, just as it’s becoming more and more difficult to say that WLBs are clearly better options than SLBs.

...

In general, it’s still worth looking at the strong safety first in standard scoring leagues, but routinely ignoring the free safety without considering talent, scheme, and responsibility is a mistake that could keep you from acquiring a very good fantasy option.

NFL safety today must fly like wideout, sting like LB

By Jim Trotter

STAFF WRITER

October 7, 2006

Chuck Cecil was a fourth-round draft choice out of the University of Arizona in 1988. At 6 feet, 185 pounds, he didn't have great size or speed for a safety, but his hard-hitting style and insatiable appetite for contact allowed him to impact passing games because receivers had to account for his whereabouts.

He had a productive seven-year NFL career, appearing in 95 games (61 starts) and recording 344 tackles and 16 interceptions. But when asked recently if he could play in the NFL if he were coming out of college today, Cecil was as firm with his answer as he was with his hits.

“No,” he said.

Cecil pointed to rules changes that opened up passing games and improved player safety. The adjustments forced clubs to rethink their attitudes toward safeties. It was no longer good enough to have miniature linebackers on the back end of the defense. Safeties also had to be athletic and fast enough to cover downfield.

“No question, those things changed the safety position,” said Tennessee coach Jeff Fisher, a former safety who played four seasons in Chicago. “The play-action game, the vertical game, has redefined the position. The days of the old neck-roll strong safety are over. That guy's now a linebacker. Peyton Manning and the rest of the talented quarterbacks in this league are stretching the field, if you will, and they're putting pressure on the safety down the field.

“In my day, our job was just to come downhill and hit anything that moved. Now we've got corners who are playing the position.”

The most prominent face of the new safety belongs to Troy Polamalu, whose Pittsburgh Steelers will play the Chargers tomorrow evening in Qualcomm Stadium. Polamalu has everything defensive coordinators are seeking these days: instincts, athleticism and playmaking skills against the pass as well as the run. He isn't overly big (5-10, 212) or fast, but he consistently is around the ball, making tackles or forcing turnovers.

“He's unique,” Chargers tight end Antonio Gates said. “If you watch their defense, you really have to key on him. You have to game plan him. That was deep to me, because I had never played a safety that we had to worry about, outside John Lynch. This guy, he's kind of got that John Lynch mentality that he can change the defense that much. He's a tremendous run-stopper, he's a tremendous blitzer, he's fast, he's physical, he has that long hair. He's out there like he's just mad at the world.

“When you're playing, you just have so much respect for him after you play him. You knew he was good on film, but he's even better in person. He can do it all.”

That's heady praise considering the safety position was devalued for so many decades. The last true safety to gain admittance to the Pro Football Hall of Fame was Ken Houston, and that was 20 years ago.

From 1982 through 2003, there were 17 drafts in which only one safety was selected in the first round; and from 1993 through 2003, Dallas' Roy Williams (eighth overall) was the only one taken in the top 10.

Times began changing, however, when the league liberalized some rules in the passing game and announced it would make illegal contact a point of emphasis. Plus, the league took steps to reduce helmet-to-helmet contact and hits on vulnerable receivers, thus reducing the intimidation element in some safeties' games.

With lumbering safeties/enforcers out of vogue, teams turned to the draft to address their deficiencies. In fact, there have been three safeties chosen among the first eight players over the past three drafts. And clubs have looked to convert some college cornerbacks to pro safeties.

The newfound respect for the position has meant greater recognition and wealth for safeties. In June, Baltimore's Ed Reed signed a six-year, potential $40 million extension that included $15 million in guarantees. And in August, Dallas' Williams signed a five-year, potential $25.2 million extension that included $11.1 million in guarantees.

“I'll be honest with you: If you don't pay Ed Reed like a corner – and a very good one at that – you're going to lose a guy who makes the other three DBs in your secondary a whole lot better,” said San Francisco coach Mike Nolan, who coached Reed in Baltimore. “That's why I say it's not as clear-cut as some people like to make it when applying values to certain positions. It's like saying the corner who runs 4.5 or 4.4 is better than the one who runs 4.6. You can't tell me that. It doesn't always turn out to be true.”

New England's Rodney Harrison and Denver's Lynch are examples of safeties who have excelled despite lacking the speed of others. Much of their success is due to their intelligence and understanding of offenses, which allow them to disguise their intentions but consistently be in the right place at the right time when the ball is snapped.

Still, as Tennessee's Fisher said, Harrison and Lynch are a dying breed. Defenses are so concerned about being able to match up when offenses go with three and four receivers and look to attack downfield that they're seeking safeties who can run with wideouts as well as tight ends.

“It used to be that one of your safeties was a cover guy and the other was a big thumper who basically was an enforcer,” Cecil said. “You weren't asked to cover. There was basically a big circle around you and it told the offense, 'Don't throw it in this area, otherwise you might not get to play with that guy the rest of the game or the rest of the season.' It was a no-fly zone.

“I don't know how to put it diplomatically, but that type of game really isn't allowed anymore. You can't really look for those types of guys. What you're looking for are guys who can cover down the field. The safety position is really more of a safety/corner a lot of times. Teams are isolating safeties with wide receivers. There's really no use crying about it, because the minute you do, someone will be running by you for a touchdown.”

My auction league is considering IDP for this year or next. Does FBG's base scoring system allow for enough scoring differential so as to make the bidding on those players interesting?

QBs, RBs, WRs and, to a certain extent, TEs are cause for interesting bidding because of the disparity in perceived values and the range of the bids. Kickers are not for the opposite reasons. My biggest concern with adding 3-5 IDPs to the auction is adding 50-75 players whose salaries won't have enough differntial between them to keep things from dragging.

Hope this isn't a stupid question. TIA for the input.

I'm not sure I fully understand the question, roadkill, so feel free to ask again if I don't address what you're hoping to discuss.I think you've hit the primary issue with auctions -- perceived value. Owners don't necessarily bid what a player is worth, as you know, and it's always been difficult for me to predict what players will go for in a given auction.A shallower pool of IDPs is probably going to shrink the distribution of auction values since you won't get into questionable talent until you're past the top 25-30 at each position (and maybe deeper).Norton's projections for the Top 20 DL, 30 LB, and 25 DB looks give this kind of range.DL (134-87)LB (167-122)DB (148-108)Depending on your offensive scoring, that distribution should be enough to generate a pretty decent range of salaries, even with some clumping in the middle ranks of those projections.

Not a stupid question at all. I would say that you are not impleting enough IDPs in order to create the difference, but I generally understand why leagues don't jump into starting 11 IDPs per team. My guess is that for the top handful of "name" players (not even the best IDP candidates) there will be some interest, but for the most part I think the addition of a handful of IDPs will not force anyone to alter their auction strategy greatly.

Thanks for the replies, Jene and Coolnerd. One or two guys in my league have some experience with IDP and have promised to formulate a concrete rule change proposal that will address my concerns. They have confidence that they can keep the salary spreads reasonably wide and interesting and I have confidence that they can do so.

Looking forward to being part of the general IDP discussions in the future.

I took over a dynasty IDP team this year and have been doing fairly well with the rostered players. Now we are at mid-season and it is time to start dropping some of the older players that have under-performed from some younger guys. Does FBG have the equivalent of Top 250 Forward for IDP?

You can get a customized Top 200 IDP with forward projections through the MyFBG function or by downloading the latest forward projections to the Lineup Dominator. Both are subscriber only functions, however.

I'm trying to find a way to get a listing of the top free agent IDPs in my MFL leagues.

If I use Rate My Team, it gives me the top free agents at the offensive positions.

In-season, if I use My FBG and look at the weekly projections, it will denote which players are free agents in the weekly listings, including at the IDP positions.

Is there anything out there that will give me offseason IDP free agent rankings? In the past, I've done some Excel work to compare ranking lists vs. the MFL rosters page, but the database player names and team abbreviations don't match up, which makes it a pain. It seems like something that probably exists in one of the FBG tools, but I can't seem to find it.

In the past, I've done some Excel work to compare ranking lists vs. the MFL rosters page, but the database player names and team abbreviations don't match up, which makes it a pain. It seems like something that probably exists in one of the FBG tools, but I can't seem to find it.

Go to MyFBGCreate customized draft list (preseason), scoring system of the MFL team you want.Click Create draft list.It lists your team in gold and free agents in blue, all in order of projections. You can pick a certain position if wanted or every position together.
