Fantasy Football Fan Focus

After receiving yet another interesting in-depth email inquiring about my thoughts on an IDP roster recently. And talking with the gentleman about sharing with the fantasy football community, we’ll see what assessment we can “take” to address anything IDP to possibly assist.

Please keep in mind, there will be little to no editing to keep the personal touch of the email and replies. But some formatting may occur for the sake of publishing. My assessments are in RED.

Before we go to his email let’s look at some additional info I asked for to help in the assessment.

First, the leagues scoring set up, minus kicker(s). I personally love this scoring format. When using IDPs in a league it clearly is a set up to bring up the defensive players to balance the league. I was told it is a 12 team league, so this approach in the standard size league shows very well for IDP formats coming up in the Fantasy Football realm.

Good Afternoon,

I recently went from doing nothing more than your basic PPR league to joining a 12 team, full IDP Dynasty that keeps a salary cap. As one article I recently read put it, I chose to take the cannonball approach vice testing the waters with a toe dip. I have been in the league about 1 month now and have already made about a dozen trades with over half the league. At this point in time I am finally getting where I feel the team is mine. I have definitely turned it into a rebuild but feel with the right rookie picks it could be competitive this year even. If you would be so kind maybe you could look over my IDP list and give me some insight as to who you think would be worth something now, in the future, or isn’t worth keeping? Also, would you maybe give your input for what defensive rookies are looking good to grab? Listed below are is my IDP list followed by what picks I have this year.

Roster usage is: DT-1, DE-2, LB-3, CB-2, S-2

Flex -1 that can come from any of the positions.
