Love you :-b


Well off the top of my head I like the duo of Robert Mathis and Dwight Freeney this year. Pagano brought the 3-4 to Indy so they will be playing rush OLB there, if they are still listed at DL in your league it will be a nice advantage for whoever takes them. On yahoo I think they have dual elgibility.

They are listed as LBs. Are they still good to target, or was that only if you could put them as a DL?

Yeah I wouldn't bother then. I think you are using Fleaflicker, seems they have their shit together when it comes to IDPs.

Eric Berry is another guy coming off a torn ACL who had good numbers a year ago and might fly under the radar at S.

I probably wouldn't reach for a superstar ILB til the 5th round at the earliest, I'd still try to get a nucleus of studs on offense first. Still I've never done a draft like this so just use your best judgement and let things come to you I guess.

I am using FleaFlicker, and thanks for the advice. Berry is ranked quite low on the sites ranking, and he had a great rookie year. Looks like a great pick in a dynasty.

I had planned to take my first IDP in the 5th round in my draft, but ended up waiting until the 7th because there was still a lot of good offensive talent on the board (8 man league only). Since IDPs have a LOT more value in your league, I would definitely look at around 5th round.

My idea would be to take Patrick Willis at that time, then kind of gauge how everyone else reacts. If there's no run on LBs or other D players, I'd wait a round or two, then start filling up my D roster.

I like Jason's philosophy of building the Offensive core first, then getting the stud Defensive players. Grab a good QB, RB, WR, etc. then start with a good ILB, and go from there.

I would follow the model you usually use in regular fantasy drafts (RB first, QB first, whatever philosophy you follow), but then interject the advice given above after you get your Off. core.

Of course, read and react to the draft as it happens. Don't follow our advice if everyone starts grabbing LBs in the first or something.
