What up, Tick? Have a glut of average LBs on a Zealots roster, who is most cut-able from this crew:

Akeem Ayers

Jameel McClain

Albert McClellan

KJ Wright

Daryl Smith

I'd hang on to Smith until we see how things shake out in Baltimore. I can understand if you hang on to KJ Wright, though I wouldn't. I'd dump all but Smith and pick up some wildcard rookies. What's on the waiver wire at LB? Is Roach or Brooks Reed available?

I actually picked up Roach earlier this offseason. Reed is available.

I need to decide on keeping two in a 16 team league between Burfict, Woodyard, Riley at LB and Burnett at safety. League awards 1 point for tackle, 1 point for assist, 2 points for PD, 4 points for int/sack/FF/FR. We start 2 LB's, 1 DE, 1 Safety, 1 CB and 1 flex. I usually keep 2 LB's but due to Burnett being a top 3 safety for last couple of years thought I might switch it up. Thoughts?

Personally would go Riley, Woodyard because it's so easy to find production at safety

Yeah, I'd keep two LBs. For me, it would be Riley and Burfict.

Reed might be worth a stash until we see preseason games.

I was amazed to find Brad Jones available in 3 of my 4 Zealots leagues - pick him up if you can.

Cyprien or Vaccaro?

Not really concerned about this season but thinking long term.

Thanks

16 team contract league, I have a need at TE (Tamme, Eifert & Moeaki).

I give: Da'Quan Bowers (1yr) & Kerwynn Williams (5yrs)

I get: Jermichael Finley (0yr) - But I can tag him with a 4yr contract.

If I don't trade for Finley, then he'll go into our FAA pool. Better to fight it out for him there, or give up these pieces now to get him? Bowers is one of only three players (others are Kyle Williams and Josh Morgan) who I have on 1 year contracts, so if he goes off this year then I would tag him for another 4. Is his dynasty value worth holding, or trading away?

I don't know your depth at DE, but I assume you'll be fine without Bowers. I'd make the trade. Finley would start for you for at least this season, probably further. I know everyone's down on him, but that great WR depth in GB is dropping off - Driver and now Jennings are gone, so there are really only 3 WRs there anymore. Finley's due for an uptick IMO - assume one WR will be injured in most games. Get him for 4 years and hope Bowers doesn't go off.

I did pick up Bowers on waivers in 3 leagues late last season because I like the situation and he has talent, but I'm not relying on him.

I currently have H.Ngata, J.Mincey, O.Vernon & F.Alexander as the DL on my roster. 16 team dynasty league We can start 3 or 4 DL, most just start 3.

C.Wooton

M.Kiwanuka

D.Bowers

J.Crick

are currently on the waiver wire.

After reading Jene's DL Tier article, it would seem that Kiwanuka & Bowers should be the 2 I target. I generally like to only carry 5 DL on my roster. I would likely cut alexander as he has Hardy & C.Johnson in front of him.

Would you agree?

I agree, though I don't know if I'd dump Alexander or Ngata... I can't claim to really know Ngata's stats, since I focus on DEs based on my scoring system.

12 team dynasty, contract and salary cap league with balanced IDP scoring. We start 3-5LBs.

Would you trade:

Ogletree - $5 - 0yrs (I won Ogletree)

for

Marquess Wilson - $5 - 0yrs

2014 5th round pick

My other LBs are:

Ellerbe, Dannell MIA LB - $21.00 0yrs

Fletcher, London WAS LB (P) - $5.00 1yrs

Henderson, Erin MIN LB - $5.00 1yrs

McClain, Jameel BAL LB (O) - $5.00 0yrs

Robertson, Craig CLE LB - $6.00 0yrs

Tulloch, Stephen DET LB - $27.00 2yrs

Wright, K.J. SEA LB - $25.00 0yrs

The 0yrs guys are ones I picked up in FA and am yet to assign contracts to, and both Ogletree and Wilson would go on my TS and can held without giving them contract years.

I assume this is Ogletree the rookie LB, not Ogletree the WR. It sounds like it.

I wouldn't make that trade. My reasons:

  • I like Ogletree's talent. I picked him in two of my four IDP dynasties, at 3.09 and 4.11. I ranked him 26th among rookies, compared to Wilson at 52nd.
  • Others prefer Ogletree. He tended to go around the beginning of the 4th round in my drafts. Wilson went at the end of the 6th round and even went undrafted in one of them.
  • I don't think your LBs are great. They're decent, but taking a shot on another rookie is a good idea given what you have IMO. I don't know how balanced your IDPs are between positions, but I'm guessing it's preferable to start 5 rather than 3. Ogletree seems a lot more likely to start for you than Wilson both short- and long-term to me.

32 team full roster:

Scoring



FF 3

Int 3

PD 2

Tackles 1.5

Assists .75

Sack 4

Safeties 5



Carter, Bruce DAL LB

David, Lavonte TBB LB

Davis, Demario NYJ LB

Misi, Koa MIA LB

Te'o, Manti SDC LB ®

Vilma, Jonathan NOS LB

Woodley, LaMarr PIT LB


Also:

AJ Klein on the TS (Davis and Beason not the healthiest of LBs)


Question is would you consider trading David or Carter for a solid upgrade at RB/WR given this group and the scoring?

Maybe a better way to ask the question is either Te'O or Demario Davis the future LB anchor-type I drafted them to be or should I just be holding David/Carter?


Appreciate your insight. Thanks

Just looking for a general strategy for drafting, as I'm about to start my first dynasty league.

12 team, 16 starters (1QB,2RB,3WR,1TE,1PK,3LB,1DT,1DE,2CB,1S), but a total of 30 spots on the roster. We can keep 25 (plus 2 developmental) year to year.

What's my strategy after getting my starters? Fill up on young guys with promise? Get solid backups? A combination of the two? Something entirely different? Thanks.

Firstly, what are roster requirements? Do you start more than 3 LBs? How many WRs?

Don't love Te'o's outlook. Like Davis but he is an unknown. I would hold Carter and David save for a very generous offer.

Possibly see if there are any takers for Te'o?

I drafted Klein too with the same idea in mind :yes:

Hi Tick,

Zealots PPR scoring if you are familiar with that

I currently have the following LB's on my team:

Nigel Bradham

Lance Briggs

Karlos Dansby

Gerald Hodges

Brad Jones

Sio Moore

D.J. Williams

Daryl Smith is available in free agency, should I drop one of the LB's up above for Daryl Smith? If so which one?

Thank You

I agree - hold unless there's a really good offer out there. Normally I'll trade D for O, but you've got too many question marks there. In a year it could look silly that you didn't trade guys away if those young guys end up coming through, but we don't know enough about them yet.

Wait on IDPs. Keep waiting. Then wait some more. You don't even have to draft the CBs, DT, or S if you'll have waivers available. If you need to, pick them as your last four picks. One DE means everyone will have a stud, which drives their value into the ground. The only IDP you have to think about is LB, and there are 36 good ones out there... if you ended up with LB24, LB30, and LB36 in predraft rankings, to me it would indicate that you've had a great draft, because it means you loaded up on the correct positions instead of reaching for IDPs.

IDPs just don't hold their value from year to year well enough. Treat the IDP side of things as a redraft more than a dynasty - always feel free to drop a guy whose situation got worse for one whose situation got better.

No idea who's on your team, what your starting requirements are, your scoring system, the cost of picking up a free agent, or anything else useful to answer this. Knowing nothing, though, I would pick up Jones and Moore if you can. All of those guys are worth holding through training camp...

1 pt tackle, .5 pt/assist, 2pt/sack, 4pt/interception

start: 2 LB, 1S, 1CB, 1DT, 1DE, and 1 IDP who is not an LB

we can keep two players on D each year, only one per position

best posibilities:

LB: Wagner, Posluszny

S: Harrison Smith, Tyvon Branch

DE: J Allen, Graham

CB: Finnegan

I am thinking of going with Graham and Allen. Should I consider Smith since he would be a keeper for me forever (no rules about giving up keepers - I have AP and Megatron on offense)

thanks!

I feel like I'm forgetting someone... am I forgetting a Graham at DE? This isn't Brandon Graham, is it? If so, there's no way you keep him. Philly went to a 3-4.

I wouldn't keep any safety in that format - I'd go with Allen and one of Wagner or Poz.

I'm in a draft atm. Dynasty league. We start 4 LBs, and I've only chosen one so far, Donald Butler. 49 is already of the board, so I feel i have to pick one up with my next pick.

Question nr.1:

Of these 6 linebackers that are available, which one would you take. Brad Jones, Mychal Kendricks, Karlos Dansby, David Harris, Demario Davis and Manti Teo

Question 2: Could you give me some advice regarding sleepers among linebackers? Since 49 is already off the board, I need to start digging!

I'm probably too late, but Jones and Kendricks are great picks there.

In general, I'd look at guys you think could be 3-down players, particularly MLB/ILBs. Te'o is someone I could see doing that. Davis could be 3 downs, which is still useful.

You could also grab guys we expect to get a shot in the future, like Keenan Robinson or... uh... I guess there aren't many left right now. Hit this season's rookies hard if you see any left.

If you're a subscriber, Jene Bramel's tiers are great for this.

It looks like you'll have no problems building a new group every season.

Washington's out due to his next suspension being for a full season.

The other three are top-10 LBs. I guess I'd go with Wagner due to age since they're all roughly equal.
