We’ve all been there. The relationship that’s getting a little bit stale. You miss the excitement, the thrill of the first date, the first kiss, where your mind couldn’t stop thinking about your better half. You need to get that spark back! Like relationships, sometimes Fantasy Football can get a little monotonous as you keep […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
The AFC North has traditionally been known for its defensive superiority. The 2022 season didn’t completely live up to the hype. With two new defensive coordinators, Mike MacDonald in Baltimore and Teryl Austin in Pittsburgh, there were some adjustment pains. In the 2023 season, there will be one new defensive coordinator in the AFC North, […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
The AFC North can no longer claim the best defenses in the NFL. The AFC East can challenge with defensive-minded coaches and are upping their ante this upcoming season. The AFC East can claim the defensive prowess of Bill Belichick, Jeff Ulbrich and Robert Saleh, Leslie Frazier (on sabbatical), and Sean McDermott. When the Miami […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
The NFL 2023 free agent period is quickly approaching. That is when teams can begin negotiating with free agents. The free agency begins on March 13, Monday, at noon, and legal tampering begins. The following Wednesday, March 15, at 4 pm, is when any deals agreed to during the legal tampering time can be made […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
The regular season is, unfortunately, over. It is time to get your fantasy football angst out or continue celebrating even if you don’t play IDP, defense matters. Whatever side of the fantasy football fortunes you landed this year, if you played IDP formats, you have some players to thank. Even if you weren’t playing IDP, […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
It is Week 9, and we are once again in “bye-pocalypse.” There are six teams on a bye this week. Those teams are Cleveland Browns, Dallas Cowboys, Denver Broncos, New York Giants, Pittsburgh Steelers and the San Francisco 49ers. NFL Week 9 IDP. While these teams may not have you worried on the offensive end […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
The injury bug has not only affected the offensive side of the ball. Defensive players are dropping like a prom dress, as well. Very few teams have not seen an injury to a vital part of their defense. Unfortunately, that also means an injury to a vital part of your fantasy IDP rosters. Here are […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
It is getting chaotic out there. Between injuries and suspensions, your individual defensive players (IDP) roster might look a little bare. I’m here to break down IDP rankings and plays with you. So, if you have a healthy stud or someone close to resembling a healthy stud go ahead and play him. But for those […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
It is Week 3 and there are still some very good IDP players that are not rostered. We have managed to get this far without an excruciating amount of IDP-relevant injuries (knock on wood), so now it is time to trust what we are seeing on the field. Last week there was some impressive rookie […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
We made it through Week 1. Now the evaluation with (some) current stats can begin. Doesn’t mean it is going to be perfect…or will it, it just means we know what happened last week as opposed to last year. The one-week sample size isn’t ideal, but hey, I maintain it is better than going off […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
It is the first week of the rest of our 2022 fantasy football season. Fantasy fortunes are not won or lost this week, but it just feels good to get a Week 1 win under your belt. It is Week 1 for everyone. The preseason is diminished to a shell of itself. The movement of […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
If there’s one buzzword that coaches absolutely love to use this time of year, it’s “competition.” Hey coach, how’s your first round rookie looking? “He’s competing every day, and that’s all we can ask of him.” Wow, thanks… Or how about this one? “We love the additions we made through free agency and the draft, it’s added some great competition to our locker room, and it’s pushing everyone to be better.” Blah, blah, blah. These guys really know how to say something without saying a thing don’t they? In all honesty, most of the competition happens on the back end of the roster, as teams have to decide who to keep and who to cut as they trim the roster to 53 players. Most of these decisions don’t have a major impact on fantasy football, as we already have a good idea who the impact players are. There are always a few legitimate competitions, however, that WILL make a difference for your IDP rosters. Since coaches rarely tell us exactly what their plans are, I’m here to help you read the tea leaves for one of the top defensive battles in the league, the Dallas Cowboys linebackers.
