  1. Arbitrary position designations frustrate the hell out of aspiring IDP dynasty gamers. They make the game less accessible. I've encountered lots of league mates who quit in frustration, citing this. Aaron Donald was changed from DE to DT in late August on MFL and still no one knows why (I.e., no methodology has been articulated such that we could learn and adapt). There's no skill in gaining that windfall in your DT-premium league. Debates over whether Khalil Mack is a DE or a LB just make IDP look like a foolish side show at this point.
  2. Interesting skill set to assume Logan Ryan's role from a couple years ago. Worth watching in a deep league requiring CBs.
  3. Yeah, I have lots of CJGJ in dynasty with the expectation Davenport would switch him to CB like he did Damontae Kazee. Wouldn't it be nice is position designations were logical, even systematic and predictable?
  4. Madubuike to DT (no, he's not a nose tackle) while Oweh to LB. What are we even doing anymore? True positions or bust for me.
  5. Considering how quickly he was changed from LB to DE in MFL, I expect he'll stay there this season. Is there risk he'll be changed back next season? Sure, but prolly lower than for a typical DE playing for a coach on the hot seat this year.
  6. I think Carl Lawson is a windfall in this situation. He's in my top 50 IDPs for dynasty.
  7. Yeah, that makes no sense that the two obvious 5-techniques on that roster are tagged DTs. It wreaks of a situation that Gary Davenport could watch in August and say, "duh." Keep in mind he was threatening to change Allen to LB when Todd Wash was there.
  8. I agree it hurts Ferrell, but Ngakoue fit into a very similar scheme in Jacksonville with Josh Allen and Calais Campbell. Ferrell will play big end in Gus Bradley's 50-fronts with Crosby and Ngakoue outside. The challenge Bradley has is to get one of those two to play in space or they'll get lit up like Atlanta has the last couple years under Dan Quinn.
  9. I agree, Gally. I couldn't understand why they dealt Casey last spring. This seems like a correction. Simmons should wreak havoc in 2021. Good looking 3- and 4-down sets with Autry at 3/5T and Dupree and Landry on the edges.
  10. 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.
  11. Thanks for the hat tip, @Duckboy. Tick, Gally, and Mac really help drive the convo. Great contributors
  12. 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 undervalued. And dare I say, dare I invoke the name 😬 TRACY WALKER?! 🔥🔥🔥
  13. 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. I haven't started my off-season study, so my initial impressions might be off.
  14. 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?
