By Duncan Smith Let me start this week by saying I hope you all had a very merry Christmas and to those of you who won your championships, congratulations. With that said we find ourselves at the turn of the year, a time of new beginnings and new starts. It’s time to look forward and … Continue reading In My Defense – Week 17
And now the end is here, so we’ve faced the final curtain, and made the playoffs! Yay, well yay for those of you who made the playoffs. In the interests of full disclosure I did not make the playoffs in my IDP league, I finished the season at 7-6 but due to me not having 2 starting quarterbacks for two weeks due to COVID and injuries, and our wild card spots being decided by points for I missed out. I am however guaranteed a top 4 pick next year and I’m reaching a point where I feel really good about my team going forward, who knows maybe I’ll do a deep dive into my roster in the off-season.
In between the Covid-19 chaos we started with the Washington front seven smashing up Dallas, saw one player score two defensive touchdowns on back to back plays, a team with no quarterback manage 113 yards of total offense, Patrick Mahomes and Tyreek Hill combine to put up more against Tampa in one quarter than most teams manage in four, Aaron Donald get back to sacking ways, Joey Bosa tear through the Bills and we finally crossed the plane to week 13 with T.J. Watt leading the charge for Mr. Sacktacular 2020.
Before we begin the breakdown, remember to check who your league mates dropped once waivers clear. Week 2 was brutal, and some of your competitors might not have the luxury of keeping stud IDP players on IR all year. If they can't, and you can make sure to grab them up immediately.
I'm not sure whether I'm a bigger fan of a good Pennsylvania Rye or a healthy pour of Glenlivet, so I try to keep a supply on hand to quench my thirst. In the same token, I'm not sure if you enjoy my (JJ) brand of smooth dad-joke laden IDP takes or if you prefer the Benny Hill and Oscar Wilde mash-up of Duncan Smith. Well, you are going to get a mix of both as we join forces to take a look at weekly IDP trends.
In today's disposable society, we rarely look back and take stock of where we were in yesteryear and how we got to today. Well, with a little help from my old friend, the internet, I've decided to go back and look at previous NFL drafts. I'm looking at picks 1,25,50,75 and 100 from each year starting in 2014. When the exact pick isn't an offensive player, I've taken the next closest and indicated their draft position. I've chosen to start my retrospective in 2014 mostly because woof, what a crop.
By Duncan Smith Greetings All, and welcome to part 6 of our startup recap. I'm going to wrap up here with the second half of our draft. I'm going to recap our format and scoring quickly. It is as follows, 12 team, Superflex Dynasty league. Squads consist of 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 … Continue reading ROD Writers League: The Anatomy of a Startup Draft – Part 6
Now that you’ve all followed my advice and gone out and acquired shares in all of my rookie sleepers... You did, right? I’m back with another rookie running back for you to consider, Tennessee Titans Darrynton Evans, the Appalachian State back who was selected 93rd overall in the third round by Tennessee.
Thank you for joining me for part 5 of my Dynasty startup review. At this point we’re going to increase the number of rounds we cover again and reach the halfway point of the draft by covering rounds 11 through 15.
By this stage in proceedings, our teams are coming together. Each manager should have an idea of where their strengths lie and what positions they need to take some fliers on in the middle rounds. So without further ado here is the results of this portion of the draft:
