  1. I think David Long is the kind of player that will always get replaced during the offseason by someone more legitimate in terms of raw athletic potential. He is a great pickup when he gets a starting role due to injuries though. Just wouldn't count too much on him for 2022. He plays very aggressively against the run which is always good for fantasy production. Just be carefull with players with no pedigrees and nothing special about their athleticism.
  2. Sig put out a youtube only smaller version of the IDP podcast on youtube the last two weeks called IDP Blitz.
  3. Look out for the opponent's TE running to the endzone and usually you will see Peppers desperately trying to cover him from 5 yards behind. And that's why he isn't a full-time player this year if week1 is any indication.
  4. That's why I'm still half furious about this announcement being made on August 19th in a half assed tweet. This should have come in February, when most leagues are dormants, preferably with a 1 year heads up to how exactly changes will look like. Now it will be speculations for a year, while forcing me to listen to a podcast i don't want to listen to. Guess IDP is just not important to MFL as a customer base.
  5. You probably would want to invest in LBs this year in dynasty if edge players transforms to DEs next summer. If leagues don't change how many players start at DE/Edge and LB, then the playerbase of LBs will be smaller which augments the value of your own depth at the LB position. So while everybody zigs to edge i will be zagging to LB depth if possible. Those 3 downs linebackers will have even more value with their numbers going down in IRL NFL anyhow. If you can sell some "boring" 4-3 DE thst you dont need in 2021 for a 3 down LB right now, I would do it. And obviously if you are able to get your hands on pass rushers with LB designations they will skyrocket in value, especially in tackle heavy format where they don't have high value right now. I'm stashing guys like Rashan Gary who is basically free. Chubb in Denver maybe is cheap, the NYG edge situation could get you a edge player for nothing. Nwosu in LA. There will be lots of Edge players available. Also if DTs is a relevant scoring position in your league, 3-4 DEs will give you good value. Just make sure to check out if PFF has them as edge or interior linemen before you make a move, guess how they classify a player will have a lot of weight in the future (already does with this one true position converting tool from DLf).
  6. I mean sure it's not the end of the world and locking for the duration of the contract is smart. It's still a problem for redrafts that are in the middle of drafting, or non contract dynasties etc. For more than a decade MFL made changes due to scheme changes around April, than more changes mostly due to preseason games in August. Their was a consistency to it, you knew what was coming. If you drafted a DT but you knew he played mostly DE in camp and in the preseason, you had to know you lived dangerously. All this has been thrown out of the window since Gary took over, you never know what he is doing. One year he changes Aaron Donald 10 days before the season starts based on the previous season, another year he declares "no changes in August anymore". That's just bad. Like you said, he should have a clear rule set.
  7. https://twitter.com/IDPSharks/status/1427343616519835655 well now you can vote on if we still do changes or not. What a way to handle stuff ! Let's have a twitter vote in the middle of draft season ! (this is my last offseason with leagues running default MFL positions, in 2022 I will be very happy to not participate in this thread anymore as all the leagues i'm in will have switched to True Positions, thank god)
  8. I've one spot left over in a long running IDP Redraft league (bigplay oriented scoring) that is lucky to have the prominent participation of Sigmund Bloom, Aaron Rudnicki and Matt Schauf , who you might all 3 know from the IDP Podcast on Footballguys. The other players are "randoms" of this forum mostly, but good ones. here some details: Buy-in: 40$ per leaguesafe starting lineup: 2 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 2 TE, 1 RB/WR, 1 WR/TE, 1 DT, 2 DE, 3 LB, 2 CB, 2 S, 1 IDP-Flex - !!! 8 benches only !!! Scoring: Full PPR, big play idp scoring, more details: https://www58.myfantasyleague.com/2021/home/10716#0 Waiver system: Blind bidding followed by FCFS Draft: Offline "email" Draft, will start next week on monday or tuesday hit me up in the DM's if you are interested.
  9. At this point I think Davenport is enjoying the extra attention to his content that all this mess is bringing.
  10. CJ Gardner staying at safety is driving me nuts. The guys covers the slot all game long, i thought actual position x snaps is what Gary was looking at !?
  11. Jets are almost certainly moving to a 4-3, which would make Quinnen Williams an elite DT. Chargers moving to a 3-4 will be interesting. Risk of Bosa becoming a OLB. Melvin Ingram if he stays there too (he started his fantasy career at LB I remember those wasted years in some leagues).
  12. So Dan Quinn signed as DC of Dallas, probably means they will stay a 4-3 defense. In a 4-3 Under a guy like Aldon Smith could play the Leo (or the SAM) so there is a small chance Gary could put him as a LB. If you own him in dynasty and you play on MFL (and it looks like they still won't switch to Edge-IDL this year right ?), it could have been worse. Not a totally sure thing though.
  13. One thing that Rotoworld was also better at is the backend of the depth chart. Their DC were consistent even for the backups. and the backups of the backups. You wouldn't have a 250 lbs Attaochu at DE designation taking over for LB Von Miller.
  14. it would be better you are right, a majority agrees on that i think. But as long as myfantasyleague.com doesn't switch, it will be a headache, because that's where most serious idp leagues are hosted.
  15. its great news if you own him, but it's poor process overall. We will have players from the same role im the same defense playing on different fantasy positions. Its not an inseason move with positions locked; he will deliberately not be changed im the last changes on MFL. Either all 3-4 Edges are DEs or its just chaos and value of players depending on the mood of one inconsistent person. Kind of had enough of paying 80 bucks per league for that.
  16. looking to move some redraft leagues away from MFL to ESPN because if I want bad positioning I can get it for free there. And at least there I know they won't change players every 5 minutes and ask every month on twitter "what system do you guys prefer" 1).... When they got them from rotoworld it wasn't perfect but it was 100% predictable. There comes a time where MFL's refusal to switch to interior/edge designations just has to have consequences. It's hard to go away from them in dynasty settings though. 1) referring to this tweet: https://twitter.com/IDPSharks/status/1254820764630560770
  17. Bruce Irvin is at DE on the Fantasy Sharks DC; you have simply missed him I guess, he is among the starters. Nice list tough, great work tripp.
  18. I'm not saying if it's right or not, you could of course make the case to have him at DT (though Brokers staying at DE just because he plays a higher % of base snaps, well it shows that subpackage role doesn't tell the whole story). But Fantasysharks took the job to do the DCs for MFL back in April. The changes to Clowney and Donald are based on their 2018 data. Why wait until now ? There have been multiple waves of position changes since they took over, yet they wait the middle of August to change the most important IDP player ?If it was based on changes that are new and only showed in the first preseason games or even OTAs, than of course that would be a correct change. But it's not the case here. Those are changes based on the 2018 season of the players.
  19. Yep, this is so outrageously bad timing to do this so late in draft season without a hint that it might happen for monthes before.
  20. The first year is free, but we plan to have an insentive around 20$ for year 2 if the initial setup works, to pay league fees and have a little price money for the winner.
  21. We are now 11, so i'd need a 12th so that I don't have to kick the 11th out of the league. Think of that poor guy and be his savior !
  22. Hello everyone, I'm searching for 6 players to fill a 12 teams league where the scoring format is set in a way that having the worst player makes you win the matchup. The league is a redraft league and will have no fees and no winnings in year 1 as I want to be sure that the scoring is playable, but if the first season is successfull and fun, I will certainly add them to have a little incentive for a second season. I'm searching for GMs who like to test out something new and exotic, while still taking it seriously enough to be competitive Just hit me up here per PM if you want in, or answer below. Here are a few further details on the scoring system, there is also a link to the complete scoring system and the league:
  23. Hi Simon, what is the reason for the VBD values to be fixed values . I know you can change them manually in the online draft dominator, but then its changes them for all leagues and it always resets to the fix values after restart. Shouldn't the DD be able to set lower baselines by itself for QBs in 2 QB leagues for example ? Thx
