I'm not sure if nfl.com are locking down fantasy drafts with the season opener being only a few hours away?

Anywayz, 9pm is the best I can do for the start time unfortunately.
That should be fine for me, I should be available by then

Hey guys.

I've been looking a bit more into IDP scoring and defensive linemen and defensive backs really struggle to be fantasy relevant, I would like to find some way to add a little more value to the players at these positions.

Would anyone object to the following adjustments being made to the scoring for defensive players?

Tackles - 1.5pts
Assisted Tackles - 0.75
Sacks - 4pts
Passes Defensed - 2pts

Bumping these scores up to the above level will bring the top defensive players more into line with offensive players I feel. As I said in the OP, we can revisit issues like this at the end of the season but for the moment I am thinking making these changes would be a step in the right direction.

If there's still space i'd be interested in this, never one a dynasty before

Edit: Just saw the league details and Ronde's Barber Shop has joined

I'm fine with that, makes sense to have them closer to what the offensive players score.

It's fine by me, will make for a very different/interesting draft.

Well guys, are we all set for the draft tonight?

Not sure I am but I'm looking forward to it anyway.


I made the minor adjustments to the defensive scoring system but nfl.com wouldn't let me set assisted tackles to 0.75pts and I found that the alterations swelled linebackers scores to a crazy high level so I tweaked it slightly by removing the tackle for a loss bonus and that appeared to correct the problem.

So I left it like this............

Tackles - 1.5pts
Assisted Tackles - 0.5pts
Tackle for a loss bonus - removed
Sacks - 4pts
Passes Defensed - 2pts

Hopefully this will add some value to defensive linemen and defensive backs without making linebackers ridiculously good.
