Already being tabbed the new starter.  

 

Nice call.  Glad I took a cheap flyer on him after your recommendation.

  • Hyder, Kerry DET DE

He recently signed as ERFA, with a 1 year deal.  Making a complete URFA next year (less he gets tagged).

Considering the addition of Pat Patricia as head coach and the possibility of the Patriots style of 4-3/3-4 hybrid system... Hyders past playing as a DT may really work in his favor. He was listed as the starting DE across from Ziggy when he got hurt last preseason. He currently plays 20 lbs lighter then in his college days.

If he was ERFA he goes to RFA the next year.  Takes 4 accrued seasons to be UFA.  I do like him, especially if he's carrying a DT tag.

Hyder was stashed on my IR last year and I've held him through the preseason. No idea what to expect, honestly. His rookie season he put up nice stats but was the beneficiary of incorrect designation. He played DE (due to injury) but was listed as DE. In weighted leagues (like mine) that was a big difference. His stats fell off to end the season but I much of that was the return of the injured DE ahead of him (Ziggy, iirc?). I'm not sure what to expect if he gets the DT designation but it's probably worth the hold to find out, if you can.

Absolute OUCH in New Orleans.

AQ-Muhammad and Okafor are back and they traded away a future 1st to move up for Marcus Davenport.

:kicksrock:

Hope they slot him at OLB.  :longshot:

Ouch, indeed. Okafor was a solid freebie last season. Rotation / vulture situation now.... honestly it makes my choices easier for the one team I have him. Too many DEs on the roster after a busy off-season for me at DE. lol

They have to be thinking of Davenport as an OLB don’t they?  Okafor was pretty solid when healthy plus they have the two others.  Really seems like an overload

I do a 10 round rookie/FA rookie draft, and one of my late picks is gonna be Carl Lawson, who I think is going to move to a DE designation on MFL.

He's already DE on roto and MFL.

Great stash with Dunlap & Johnson in the final year of their respective contracts.

Stashed him right after he landed in Seattle.  Surprised by his sack in 4 straight games to close the season. Not surprised that its Pete Carrol getting this out of him.

And now Michael Bennett saying he will be released and Cliff Avril turns 32.

Cliff Avril just got released:thumbup:    Michael Bennett was already traded.

They did add Rashard Green in the 3rd round, who had 10 sacks his final season at USC.  But that's not a big deal as they rotate 3 DEs pretty regularly the past few years and they had no depth after Clark and Jordan. And Green also plays plenty of DT, just as Michael Bennet did. So pass rushing down would look to keep Clark and Jordan on the edges.

SAMSON EBUKAM, LAR LB 

Honestly I don’t know a lot about him other than he is a A++ athlete, crazy pro day numbers. He is also getting PT as a rookie and I didn’t wanna wait. I grabbed him in my two Dynasty leagues, think he was a 4th rounder and is kinda raw with pure athleticism that just needs to be coached up.

From his pro day report:

At just shy of 6-foot-2 and weighing in at 240 pounds, Ebukam had impressive numbers to go along with his imposing size. His vertical jump of 39 inches, broad jump of 10'10" and 40 time of 4.45 were eye-opening. He bench-pressed 225 pounds 24 times.

Looking at the Rams depth chart, and everything I've read, this guy seems like OLB 3-4 style.  

https://theramswire.usatoday.com/2018/04/26/nfl-los-angeles-rams-draft-samson-ebukam-pass-rusher-job/

The ILB spot here seems like  4-man group of Barron, Ramik, Cory Littleton, Micah Kiser. 

Barron is coming off Feb shoulder surgery, will be a potential cap casualty as a 29 year old next year.  

Barron is guy to try and trade, IMO.  His value will probably plummet after this year.  

Ramik is JAG, I might try and double up on Littleton and Kiser late in drafts, and stash.

2018 version:

DL
Emmanuel Ogbah - from the "non-IR leagues" that may have forgotten about him.
Kony Ealy - miscast in NYJ 3-4 and only 25 years old.  Pray he goes to a 4-3 team with a need like TBB

Interesting PFF tidbit on batted passes.

Go to the link for the graphic  TEXT:

  1. Cameron Jordan - 10
  2. Kony Ealy New Orleans - 9 
  3. Carlos Dunlap Cincinatti - 7
  4. Emmanuel Ogbah Cleveland - 6
  5. Denico Autry Oakland - 6

Nobody batted more passes than Cameron Jordan in 2017!

12:47 PM - 26 May 2018

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ogbah was injured so his came in 10 games but Cleveland's D was on the field a ton so Ealy had more in less snaps however you have to figure in game scripts and the fact he only played with Miles Garrett for three games and in those three games they combined for 6 sacks which bodes well for this season, jes say'n.

It appears that Washington SS Deshazor Everett is currently at 2% Add in MFL. I haven't been able to find any news about him through google or twitter that would support this, and it seems he is still just DJ Swearinger's back-up. Anyone have some insight here?

On the second team unit, Greg Stroman got some play on the outside opposite Fabian Moreau with Deshazor Everett and Troy Apke taking charge at safety.

Wouldn't that make him Nicholson's backup?  I'm not sure why we're even talking about a 195 lb 2nd stringer when there's a 22 year old starter ahead of him - that's the guy I want on my dynasty team.

Thanks guys. Guess some places have the depth chart wrong with Everett above Nicholson. MFL/Fantasy Sharks is projecting better stats for Everett as well.

First year playing really deep IDP dynasty and pretty much looking at anything with the hint of a pulse. Very helpful to have you folks here pointing me in the right direction. :thumbup:

Im hearing some whispers about Ahmad Thomas playing the tweener LB-S spot in Green Bay with some first team reps. And playing very well.

He is listed as a DB on rotoworld. Listed as a LB (#56) at packers.com. Not listed at all on Ourlads. Was a practice squad player last year.

Not sure if Josh Jones is doing that Packer hybrid position anymore, or if he is purely the starting strong safety at this point.

This can happen a lot because these are just fillers from the prior season.  Current/recent projections, in particular IDP, are tough to find and nigh impossible this early.  I like to use Rotowold depth charts as they are the closest thing to current.  They are updated pretty frequently and are much closer to reality as they use what they see on the field during OTA's, minicamps, and training camp.  They also happen to be the official position determinant for MFL, so if a guy is listed at a certain position on Roto it will eventually hit MFL.  This is a highly watched/discussed topic in these forums and I suggest you keep up to date on that one, you'll get some bargains and steals that way.

Yeah....no sign on MFL, listed as ILB on Rotoworld GB depth chart but click on his bio and he's listed as defensive back #56 :loco:

That Steeler ILB Tyler Matakevich has run with the first team and ahead of John Bostic through every single practice session thus far.

To be fair -- Tyler has had over 2 years in the system, while Bostic has had 2 months.

That Dallas safety Jeff Heath is playing much closer to the line and often over the TE as what is considered more of the strong safety.  This would be taking over for Byron Jones who has gone to CB full time as the #2 opposite of Chidobe Awuzie.

Should play very well for Jeffs tackle #s if it sticks.  He was already quite proficient with 63 solos in 14 games last year. But he had almost no assists (8) playing that far back. Jones had 3 times as many (24). Heath was already 13th best safety at solo tackles in '17, despite missing two games and routinely being the deep man on defense. 80 solos is obviously within reach.

DE Alex Okafor participated in his first walkthrough for the Saints.

A really good sign this early in his recovery from Achilles surgery.

Don't anticipate him getting much opportunity especially after adding Mychal Kndricks this year so file this away for the future if/when he gets a shot.

SI MMQB player to watch

Quote

Here’s a name to watch in Cleveland: Fifth-round LB Genard Avery. The Memphis product was the talk of the spring on defense for the Browns and adds to a crew that brings back Jamie Collins, Christian Kirksey and Joe Schobert, and just added ex-Eagle Mychal Kendricks.

NY Giants rookie DT BJ Hill... is getting first team reps.

The DE in their new 3-4 alignment but is being used at DT/DE hybrid on pass rushing situations.  As they will also slide Olivier Vernon into a 3 point 4-3 front with Hill as a DT.
