What’s up all you IDP junkies? It’s J to the F-O-H here to cover Kevin while he is off in Argentina working on Kevin Jr.. I imagine him munching on a steak with some chimi-churri and sipping on some Quilmes. I will not be doing the rankings, that’s his thing (which will still be updated and found below), but I will be covering the RazzDP’s in lieu of his usual player highlights and buys. I have a confession, I am not as deeply knowledgeable as Kevin in this format, but I have been playing IDP leagues for about six years now. Now don’t get me wrong, I have strong IDP knowledge, just not as vast and kick-ass as Kevin. Strangely the RazzDP’s are only my second venture into standard scoring, for I always customize my leagues for more dynamic numbers and higher rewards. I prefer more love for quality defensive performances. But that’s another article where I lay out my preferred scoring for IDP players. Damn stupid tangent… or is that agenda? Please feel free to share any opinions about what kind of scoring you like. Or any other opinion about anything… as long as it’s clean.

 

RazzDP Part Deuce

This is the league I am hosting while we are in beta mode for the IDP branch of the RCL leagues. Currently I sit on top of the standings at 9-2 and have clinched a playoff spot. Winning 7 in a row will do that to you. Now what kind of guy would I be if I was to sit here and talk only about myself? I was led by Paul Posluszny, but after he was lost for the season, I was lucky to get Denver’s Brandon Marshall back on my squad. I have gotten great returns from Rob NinkovichEric Weddle, and Reshad Jones, who by the way has averaged 8.3 points over the 6 weeks he’s played.

After my awesomeness is a very tight battle among 4 teams, who at 7-4, should be locked into the playoffs. They consist of My Fine Team, Hannibal Montana, Ralph’s Folly, and IDPwithBOOBIES. Now Ralph is Ralph, the Handcuff writer here, and the guy that brings you Razz Soccer. If none of you have never seen Razzball Soccer, don’t worry, it’s football season. Impressively, My Fine Team has scored the most points this season and is stacked with studs like Rashad Johnson, Luke Kuechly, and Everson Griffen. Well played oh fine one. Hannibal, who by the way, has a great name, grabbed his top defensive player, Keenan Robinson, out of the free agent pool. He’s paired with Baltimore’s Daryl Smith for a nice one two punch out of the linebacker spots. Adding Donte Whitner and Tashaun Gipson to his mix makes him a feared opponent each and every week. No offense to the boob man, but you my friend are hanging by a thread. Scoring the 8th fewest points in here and holding 5th place is a remarkable task. Looking at your team though leads me to call you a sleeper in all this. Owning the #2 DB Harrison Smith and a solid core of LB’s in Nigel Bradham and currently on fire Jamie Collins is a huge advantage for the boobs. Keep it up and I hope to see you in the playoffs. The last of the second placers is Ralph, the DFS baseball/ Soccer/ handcuff running back guy… he’s our Jack of all trades around here. What started out as a day laborer has turned into a handyman with a furniture business on the side. Does that analogy work? He scored it big when someone dropped Curtis Lofton for the bye week. I’m actually a little pissed at myself on this one because I texted him to go pick him up. STUPID! STUPID! STUPID! *smacks self in face* Damn, I’m so vain I have to make it all about me. He also has DeAndre Levy who has been a top five LB this year for a very stout Detroit D.

I wouldn’t be doing my job if I didn’t mention Doc’s Dazzling TeamDitka in your Butkus and Dinner with Andre. They currently sit in 6th, 7th and 8th respectively. Doc’s has had a real nice go of it with DB studs Charles Woodson and Michael Griffin along with solid LB C.J. Mosley. He should be able to lock up a playoff spot and can easily slide up to the 2nd place grouping as he’s only 6-5. Now Ditka and Dinner are both chillin’ at 5-6 but you never know how it’s going to play out. Ditka does not have an overly strong defensive group but has the best offense in the league. But I’m not here to talk about offense. He does carry names like Lawrence Timmons, Morgan Burnett and a returning Bobby Wagner on his squad. With the settings the way they are he is pretty scary match-up if he can get into the playoffs. Lastly is Andre, or as I know him, frequent commenter de nachos. Not much to say about his defense outside of Brent Grimes. Yup, Nacho, that’s all I got. Don’t hang your head Bret Favre look alike, this silly game of luck and match-ups is always willing to throw you a bone.

    Prolly bad idea jeans to punt IDP in an IDP league, eh?

      @de nachos: like Greys mom jeans?

          @de nachos: when the Haitian calls, you’ll know

    Flex Charles Sims or f Jax or roddy white and also better TE start Larry Donnell or Delaine Walker

    • J-FOH says:

      @Dom B: white donnell

  5. Scott says:
    (link)

    J-FOH, I use .5 PPCompletion, .5 PPCarry and .5 PPR to favor players that are lynchpins for their team.

    • J-FOH says:

      @Scott: that really must over value QB’s and RB’s and de-value WR’s

      • Scott says:
        (link)

        @J-FOH: I haven’t noticed a difference, but I will research it during the offseason.

    Where’s the best place for up to date IDP player news? I keep up w/rotoworld but it’s fairly crappy for current stuff. I’ve been trying to use phone apps but few of them seem to pay attention to individual defensive players as well. I’m scared to death Bobby Wagner’s gonna have a set back and I’m gonna miss it in time to swap bodies for Sunday.

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Clint: I would look elsewhere this week with Wagner and look for someone else to play. If Jameel Mc Clain gets the start i like him a lot.

      I would look at injury reports when they come out.

  7. goodfold2 says:

    ok, i try your take on this. 20 team H2H dynasty with 1 QB/ 1 RB/ 2 WR/ 1 TE/ a non-super flex/1 K/ 3 LB/ 2 CB/ 2 S/ 2 DT/ 2 DE, 12 bench. I’m WAS (at least no small part to be able to draft peterson in this league, yay!). full 1 pt per return yard. half PPR. .25 pts per rush as well, and
    RG’s Free (soon)/McCoy
    Morris/Helu/Sims/Peterson/Taliaferro/Michael
    D-Jax/Roberts (both returns)/Garcon/T.Austin/Lee
    Reed/Donnell/ASJ
    Novak (lots of pts variance in distance of kicks, and negative pts for shorter and shorter missed FG’s/EX pts)
    David/Butler/J.Jenkins (MIA)/Hightower/Trevathan (IR)
    Breeland/B.W.Wilson/Hall (IR)
    Donald/Paea
    C.Campbell/M.Johnson/Heyward
    Merriweather/Bucannon (clark and t.jefferson available)/W.Moore (IR)/Byrd (IR)
    Other than too many TE’s (and i’ve been trying with no avail to get decent value for Donnell, possibly in a 2 for 1, where i would add a RB), and other areas to work on?

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @goodfold2: I’d try to get a better WR for sure. Defensive players value varies so much from year to year that you can always improve there next year.

      • goodfold2 says:
        (link)

        @J-FOH: sadly, i had kept robinson predraft, but due his rankings early in year being lower than butler and others i dropped him, even in league this deep. riley i also used to own, but he’s gone now too, i seemingly have guys pretty highly ranked for dynasty in butler/trevathan.

    • goodfold2 says:
      (link)

      @goodfold2: oh, yeah, it’s not a big play league, so solid tacklers more valued.

    checked in on all my leagues.crickets abound. Raiders players have to be the most unowned in all of fantasy.

    • J-FOH says:

      @de nachos: the vikings and Chiefs are up there too

  9. goodfold2 says:

    with b.wilson (CB) and m.johnson (DE) both questionable who’s best pickup for now if only one sits (i’ll probably drop t.austin for this roster spot, he only gets punt returns, and p.parker was just dropped, he gets kick returns, 10 yards per return league from above. parker averages about 1.5 more pts per game this year). i’m going off fantasy pros ranks for these names since they’re too deep to be on kevin’s list
    bouye/s.wright/maxwell/hayden/taylor (MIA)/m.williams (NYJ). williams and bouye have the highest per game averages with mid 9’s in pts. (all CB’s here)
    or DE’s :the other des bryant/wolfe/redding/hicks/m.jackson (DEN)/j.smith (TB)
    sure looks like the higher end CB’s are much better overall pt guys than these lower end DE’s.

  10. goodfold2 says:
    (link)

    eh deep leaguers that are tired of their DT’s getting 1 or 2 total pts. Paea (CHI) now averages 5.06 pts per week (6 sacks in 9 games). this makes him the 19th best DT on a per game basis (and i didn’t even check all those names ahead of him to see if some of them were only guys who played 1 or 2 games and had big games). I had stuck with the STL guys Brockers/Donald too long since rankings said so, dropping Ratliff early in year. Ratliff is now the 5th best DT (just ahead of Donald, who i still have).

    • goodfold2 says:
      (link)

      @goodfold2: in fact, donald/paea had the best 2 weeks of ANY DT, and both on my roster. sucks as i’ll still lose (thanks WAS offensive players that make up bulk of team)
