We’ve already tackled the draft and free agency, but there is one more facet of the IDP offseason that could potentially play the biggest role in altering a player’s value: scheme changes.

It may take until training camp and the preseason to get a read on some situations, but there are other teams where we can already sense how things will look in Week One.

Since then a lot has changed, not the least of which is the IDP landscape in the NFL. Over the next few weeks, I’ll be taking a look at how free agency and coaching changes will affect IDP in 2015, but today I’m starting with the rookies.

There’s a Hunger Games-heightened awareness that kung-fu grips your junipers once lineups lock for the week. The endless control you once possessed within that chlorine-purified free agent pool or the comfort of a flex play switch fades into the distance then bursts into a monster truck tire downhill race of chaotic NFL RedZone quad-box onslaught.
