  1. IDPGuys,org staffers have been posting for a couple weeks that they're adding more customization to it. More slides and switches, I reckon. I subscribe to DTC but don't currently use the IDP piece. Hopefully, that changes.
  2. Thanks for the hat tip, @Duckboy. Tick, Gally, and Mac really help drive the convo. Great contributors
  3. Others are clearer. Melvin Ingram is expiring. Nwosu goes to OLB. Tillery to DE. Derwin James loses upside. Rayshawn Jenkins becomes irrelevant. Jabari Zuniga, Julian Okwara, and Austin Bryant become deep sleepers at DE. Sadly, the Jets have nothing else of interest other than Big Q (still obviously a DT in my eye). Da'Shawn Hand should go to DT, but he was inexplicably changed to DE a couple years ago. I don't know if Davenport pays any attention to IDPs this deep. A couple of Lions are tricky. Does jamie collins's role look like Demario Davis's? He might spend another off-season way un
  4. Joey Bosa started his career as a 3-4 end as well. 😃 But will his role look more like Aaron Donald/Jurrell Casey or Bradley Chubb/Khalil Mack? I'd guess the latter. 😰 Gary Davenport seems convinced that Fangio (from whence DC Staley came) runs a typical 3-4, and immediately changed Broncos' position designations after Fangio got the job. 😭 However, Donald was changed to DT in Wade Phillips's 3-4 one August and was left there under Staley. Star player treatment? Donald was the closest DL LA had to an EDGE by usage. 🤷‍♂️ To my eye, the Rams OLBs were clearly OLBs unlike, say, Mack
  5. A couple reporters I follow, John Owning and Patrik Walker expect Randy Gregory to play LEO. That's super intriguing to me. If he shows he can hold up in run D playing full-time, he'd have double-digit sack upside. That pushes Tank to big end, which I don't love. As for Aldon Smith, does he come back? Do they try him at SAM? Is he just DE depth? Who slides inside in sub-packages? Or do they focus resources on (sorely needed) IDLs?
  6. Theidpguru.com keeps a chart of this current throughout the season.
  7. Thanks for sharing! Including 3-4 OLBs makes this exercise doubly hard. And since scoring systems vary so widely, I don't think including them is all that useful. I think it's ok to leave out McKinney. He could be a cap casualty of the new regime, and he doesn't look like a full-time player to me for most current nfl defenses
  8. https://www.fftoday.com/stats/fantasystats.php?o=3&PosID=50&Data=Last5&Show1=15&Show2=17&LeagueID=107644 Here's a source for that.
  9. Sigmund Bloom has said FootballGuys will be following others' leads on position designations, so this may be a reaction to Davenport's comments on his podcast.
  10. I like to stash young athletes at DE/EDGE that need time to develop. This is convenient when a player is stuck on a 3-4 now but could change due to turnover at DC. Think Jabari Zuniga, Jacob Martin, Julian Okwara, Austin Bryant. I also like DJ Wonnum, Terrell Lewis, Alton Robinson, Darrell Taylor (but health? 😬), Darryl Johnson. I'm not giving up on Marcus Davenport, Lorenzo Carter, Oshane Ximines, Uchenna Nwosu, Kemoko Turay or Tyquan Lewis (How much longer will Justin Houston play? Will they bring back Denico Autry?). And what do the Steelers do opposite TJ Watt? Is Alex Highsmith the answer
  11. Nope. 😃 Klein will maintain a role but it won't be full-time. He won't be startable.

    Box Safeties

    Gary Davenport?! 🤬 So, Bradley Chubb and Jeremy Chinn are both linebackers in his mind? If he were in charge of offensive position designations, we'd have nothing but QBs, PKs, and ball-carriers! It seems some IDP writers are losing sight of the forest through the trees. If they'll only accept deep safeties as DBs, then DBs are irrelevant for FFIDP. And there are already too many linebackers in the system, preventing scarcity. This will only push people away from IDP. 😩

    Box Safeties

    I didn't keep this thread up this year because I had some questions about its relevance and the PFF alignment data I was basing it on. For instance, it seems to me that the boundaries of delineation between LEO, LOLB, LLB, SSL, and SCB for a defensive back like Derwin James are awfully thin and gray for someone making beer money to chart plays for multiple games in one evening. Questions came to a head for me today. The first thought is this: Do y'all consider an apex defender a "box safety?" That leads me to wonder if the term "box safety" implies that the safety is a de facto linebacker
  14. The Bears D-tackles were pitiful in this game. Packers IOLs routinely, easily climbed to the second level to take Smith away from the play.
