I'm refreshing the IDP Warehouse thread for 2013.

Norton's Eyes of the Guru series has already begun and I'm planning a weekly Reading the Defense column throughout July and August. The tiers series will be updated more frequently, thanks to a change in how we're posting content this year, and the Perfect Draft series will again include an IDP feature.

Finally, you'll also be able to see articles by category on the Articles page and search by author within the search box. Hopefully, that'll make our articles easier to find this year.

Use this thread for discussion and debate of the offseason features and please feel free to post suggestions for features and articles.

If you missed them last week...

Eyes of the Guru: NFC South and Reading the Defense: Every-Down Linebackers added to the first post.

Implications of Von Miller Suspension, How Soon Should You Draft JJ Watt and the AFC East EOTG features added to the first post today.

EOTG NFC East posted (and linked in the first post)

I'm hoping to have all three positional tiers articles updated within 48 hours.

Updated drafts of DL and LB tiers posted. I need to cross-check with my rank lists for cut-and-paste errors, but that won't happen until tonight. DB tiers planned for tomorrow. All three should be refreshed (with a rankings update) by Friday.

More Eyes of the Guru, more IDP tiers, more of Cian Fahey's excellent series on cornerbacks and an updated Guide to Twitter all posted in the past few days.

:drive:

The Eyes of the Guru series is complete, the tiers series is updated (DB coming), and there are two sets of preseason notes (one from Norton, one from me) and an every-down linebacker now linked in the first post.

Up above it says the Tiers are updated weekly. Where can I find this? The links only take me to the ones from 2 weeks ago. I checked subscriber content as well - no dice.

Those tier articles were written and updated weekly in the preseason. I usually do brief updates for lineup purposes in the RTD a couple of times a year. Week 4 is likely the earliest that'll happen, I think.

Just saw your tier updates. Love them and they are appreciated. From info gathered in the Morgan Burnett thread in the forums here it looks like he's good to go full time this week. He's not listed in your tiers (even as injured) - he'd be an Elite DB if back, correct? I just want to make sure he's not splitting time or you know of any changes in scheme that I'm not aware of.

Thanks again for your great work. Also, I'm enjoying the concussion articles. Nice to see different things pop up every so often!

Thanks.

I do a lot of cut-and-paste within a spreadsheet, then type my final tiers into our content system. Despite my best efforts, I seem to make at least one error with every update. So, I appreciate everyone pointing possible omissions out. Burnett has been added.

Glad you're enjoying the concussion work. Next installment hopefully goes live sometime tomorrow.
