2017 IDP Predictions Thread

Postby lukkynumber13 » Sat Aug 19, 2017 5:48 pm

Who will be the top scorer for the following positions?

DE: This is close. I wanna say Hunter, Griffen, Ansah, JPP, maybe even Dunlap. But it's Watt. He will return healthy and wreck the NFL again, let's say 70 combined tackles with 12 sacks.

DT: Fletcher Cox. If I'm vegas, he's the favorite here. I think he gets 8+ sacks.

LB (off ball): Kuechly, not close. Next question?

LB (pass rushing OLBs): Mack, Beasley, & V. Miller get a shout out here, but I think Justin Houston bests them all in '17. 15+ sacks.

DB: Reshad Jones is my pick. Runners up: Church, Collins, & Addae.

Who will provide the best VALUE for those same positions (relative to cost/draft capital)?

DE: Ziggy Ansah, and it's not close IMO. He's been getting thrown in the trash in dynasty leagues. I see a rebound year of 40 combined tackles and 9+ sacks.

DT: Kyle Williams will be a DT1, and he's very cheap to acquire. Timmy Jernigan is also a candidate here.

LB (off ball): Ramon Humber could be the Craig Robertson of 2017. Sorry if you just threw up in your mouth a little bit...

LB (pass rushing OLBs): John Simon is being totally ignored, but it's not crazy to think he gets 50 combined tackles and 7+ sacks. He's probably free in your league.

DB: Jahleel Addae will be a top 10 DB this year. Barring health, of course.

Who will be the best Rookies at those positions?

DE: Myles Garrett is the easy pick here, but he's also the right one. While I love Thomas & Barnett, I don't think either of them will be startable every week in 2017. MG should be a DE2-3 this year.

DT: Solomon Thomas will easily be the best rookie DT if he stays at that position. If not, look for Dalvin Tomlinson to step into 85% of Hankins' role in New York.

LB (off ball): Jarrad Davis is still my pick for the top rookie LB but Foster is right on his heels.

LB (pass rushing OLBs): TJ Watt is a beast. Watch out for 35+ combined tackles and 6+ sacks.

DB: Jamal Adams is my DB pick for ROY. Peppers is coming along slowly, whereas I know Adams will play 1000 (or maybe even 1200) snaps this season.

Pretty hard to argue against any of your predictions. Lol!! Solid review!

Never heard of Humbar, but considering how much confusion there seems to be in Buffalo + a friendly stat crew, I'll put him on a watch list. Vince Williams could provide a big return on investment too.

Top Scorers:
DE: Hunter intrigues me from an efficiency perspective. How will more snaps affect him?
DT: Buckner - only because Cox lost his starting NT next to him
LB: Kwon
EDGE: Mack
DB: Collins

Value:
DE: Demarcus Lawrence
DT: Kyle Williams - if only for one last year, see also Jay Bromley?
LB: Cory James
EDGE: Robert Quinn
DB: Eric Reid

Rookies:
DE: Solomon Thomas

Top Scorers:
DE: I Like Hunter and he will eat with full time snaps, but JPP looked unstoppable the other night against Joe Thomas. I own both Hunter and JPP , will be my two starters.
DT: I agree with Buckner due to volume - hopefully Solomon will reduce the frequency of double teams.
LB: Kwon - but do not be surprised if Jatavis Brown challenges LK and Kwon's totals with a full season
EDGE: Mack - no question
DB: BJ Goodson looked good and maybe will cut down on Collins opportunities - that said it won't be by more than 20% and that is abpout his lead on Keanu Neal with a full season of snaps

Value:
DE: Demarcus Lawrence is a good bet but I think Emmanuel Ogbah brings significant upside opposite Myles Garrett
DT: Kyle Williams - cant argue with this pick
LB: Joe Schobert, CLE
EDGE: Jordan Jenkins NYJ
DB: Mayes - NYJ Rookie Safety

Rookies:
DE: Solomon Thomas
DT: Larry Ogunjobi
LB: Rueben Foster is the odds on fav
EDGE: TJ Watt looks every bit his gargantuan clone bro
DB: Don't think Obi Melfonwu gets the snaps to outshine Jamal Adams. OAK's middle is weak but so in NYJ. NYJ Offense will have its "D" on the field a whole lot more.

Hope y'all paid attention to my John Simon call!!! That dude has been a true beast all year.

Some of my calls busted but man, I'm glad I snagged Simon in every league. Even in tackle heavy he's been good. In big play scoring, he's been an LB1

Good call, Lukky. I nailed the D Law and Buckner picks.
