I have a 16 team IDP draft on Wednesday night with the Roto Arcade posse so I’ve been updating the tiers and cajoling Drew to help me shore up some IDP strategy all while preparing to teach three classes and fly to NY for a wedding (one in which I will be sitting in the back drinking myself into a stupor while checking my Iphone for NFL tweets; hope my wife isn’t reading this).  Anyway, we are so close to football that I’m dreaming of Tony Siragusa botching the English language.

I tweaked the tiers a bit, but nothing too earth shattering.  #2 receivers on crappy teams are a pain in my ass, but a thousand puppies will die instantaneously if I don’t know who they are.  So you will see a bunch of receivers added to the tiers.  Live with it!

Here are just a few of the players I moved around.  Take a look.

DeAngelo Williams: With Stewart’s lingering achilles I moved Williams up past Chris Johnson because I always wanted to and that gave me a good excuse.

James Davis: His ADP will even out now that Lewis didn’t get cut so you should still be able to get him late.  Lewis won’t be the starter long, if at all.

Greg Camarillo: Well, my guy infatuation with Davone Bess has turned sour and now I’m selling Camarillo bars to raise money for my band trip to Saskatchewan. Camarillo looks like he will be the #2 receiver and has some decent upside.

Sidney Rice: Harvin is still green and Favre is purple, but needs an outlet over the middle.  Rice is his man for now.

Brandon Marshall: He’s been let out on probation.  Jabar Gafney is hurt.  1 + 1 = Marshall better get his shizz in gear.  He practiced with the team on Sunday and looks like he’ll play opening day.  I’m counting on it and moving him up the tiers.Mike Bell: He’s still an upside backup, but with a good shot of a big game week one.  If you have the flexibility grab him.

Jermichael Finley: Rodgers is going to pick apart defenses this year and Finley will be a part of that.

Jeremy Maclin: He could be the next DeSean Jackson which would be some pretty nifty drafting on the Eagles part.  He looks like he’ll have few more growing pains than DJax, but has the skills to make an impact this year.

Jerome Harrison: It’s been a roller coaster ride for Harrison on our Tiers.  I’ve liked him since the beginning of time, but he got hurt and big James Davis took the ball home and wouldn’t let Jerome play and of course there was old man Lewis sitting up there on his rocking chair yelling at both of them to get off his property, but since Lewis can’t seem to get out of his chair Harrison will play.

Shawn Merriman: Being the tough dude Merriman is I never thought he’d have to choke down Tequila.

    Ah, the trades have already begun. What are your thoughts on these three trades: royal/moreno for calvin johnson; royal/moreno for jennings; royal/moreno for boldin/benson

    @darren lobo: As long as Moreno or Royal isn’t buried on the bench I like the Moreno side.

    have a 16 team IDP draft on Wednesday night with the Roto Arcade

    yea I wanted an invite but Andy Behrens didn’t see fit to invite me – I told him I was in such a deep IDP draft that we had to start drafting IDP retired players – anyhway his lost – let me know how the draft turns out and who you get and who ANDY gets –

    My IDP strategy !

    when it comes to DB – if there is two players close in league stat point – I will take the player that got point off tackles over the interception – I can see the interceptions going down from year to year but the tackles will stay consistance

    some sleepers that I like

    Akeem Jordan – got starting gig late last year and was a big producer – big time late sleeper here

    Larry Foote — starting MLB

    Justin Duramt – starting MLB

    Lawrence Timmons – starting for steelers now

    E.J. Henderson is coming cheaper than the numbers he can come up with

    Stephen Cooper – nice finish – I like him

    Aaron Schobel – late DL sleeper that time forgot

    Chris Long – late DL sleeper – good upside

    Pisa Tinoisamoa – BIG NUMBERS THIS YEAR – no one is really jumping on him but I WOULD

    Brandon Flowers – STRONG FINISH – going up

    Gaines Adams – late DL sleeper

    Charles Tillman – everyone knows he good but you still can get him a drop later than he should go

    Erik Coleman – usually comes cheap enough and you will be very happy

    Bernard Pollard NA now but for how long ? he does come with nice fantasy football stats even though he has trouble covering his reciever in real life

    B.J. Raji DL – looks like they will need three players to block him

    Jermichael Finley:- TD’s red zone go to Peterson

    James Davis:those early drafts – I took him as my last pick – nothing to lose but alot to gain – all of a sudden he caught on –

  8. mrfootball says:

    Brandon Marshall – he and TO don’t want to play in the pre-season – I am sure he will put up big numbers during the season –

    Sep 3 3:29am Jermichael Finley (GB – TE) Add Free Agents San FranCisco tim

    Sep 3 3:29am Zach Miller (Oak – TE) Drop San FranCisco Waivers

    THE LEGEND BEGINS – as you can see they are now dropping Zack Miller to pick up Jermicheal Finley

    Would you drop Betts (not a Portis owner) for M Bell with this Pierre Thomas situation unclear?

  11. Doc

    @Doc: Just finished a 10 team .5ppr draft….wondering what you think and howd u approach the season with this team (possible strategy, etc)….not a sexy team, but seems well-balanced with the 5th pick:

    QB- Rivers, Roethlisberger
    RB- Turner, CP, Willie Parker, sproles, hightower, norwood, ernie graham, cadillac williams
    WR- Jennings, Welker, DeSean Jackson, Lee Evans, nate washington, kevin curtis, Morgan
    TE- Zack Miller (Shiancoe still available)
    K- undrafted
    Def- undrafted (was thinking of picking up NO Def bc they are vs DET week 1 or some sort of matchup)

    START 3 WR/no flex

    Thanks for the input

  16. matthole says:

  17. Drew says:

    @matthole: trade Portis for Top Tier receiver if possible. cut nate washington.

  18. Doc

    Doc says:

    @matthole: Like your team. I would drop Curtis and Graham for your K and D. Watch Welker’s status.

  19. Doc

    Doc says:

    @Bofum: I’d start Bush as long as he’s healthy.

    Thanks for the feedback…

    Drop Meachem or Gage (my 4th and 5th WR’s) for Sidney Rice? (My first 3 WR’s AJ, Jennings, and Welker)

  22. Doc

    Doc says:
    (link)

    @adamh: I’d stick with what you have. Rice would probably be better than Meachem right now, but Meachem has more value on your bench if Moore or Colston go down.

    Mr. Football — I moved your team to the forums. Might make it a little easier to pontificate on!
