Anyone Care to Evaluate My LB Corp

Recommended Posts

It is a 32-team Full Dynasty League, and some of my LBs have had off season moves.

 

Edwards, Merriman, K. Mitchell, Alex Lewis, Stephen Tulloch

 

Start 3/4

 

2 pts - Int, Tackle, Sack, Fum Rec, Forced Fum

1.5 pts - Pass Def

1 pt - Asst

 

Will Mitchell's produce less at NY?

Have to assume Edwards will not match last year

What are Tulloch's prospects at TEN?

 

I had one of the best units in the league, and would not have targeted LB in the off season. If Lewis is healthy all year and Tulloch progressesseems to me I should be able to come close to matching last years production, am I dreaming?

Will Mitchell's produce less at NY? Yes. They said he's moving to the strong side.

Have to assume Edwards will not match last year Fair assumption, though he's still extremely valuable.

What are Tulloch's prospects at TEN? Sirmon looks to be out in TEN, so Tulloch will get a crack to play with Bulluck and Thornton presumably. All 3 LB produced in TEN fairly regularly all of 2006, so until the Tit's upgrade their defensive line, I'd continue to expect the same thing.

You have a solid core of Merriman and Edwards, and presumably Tulluch will progress. Mitchell's value took a hit moving out of MLB, but with the cruddiness of the Giants LB corps last season, one never knows where he'll end up playing. I'm not so sure that Alex Lewis is more than a SLB in Detroit (not based on talent, just don't know where they envision him).

 

So, you're probably solid for a 32 team league, but that's based on Tulluch progressing. :D

Kawika will take a pretty substantial hit as he looks to be slated to move to SLB...2nd yr player gerris wilkinson will be a better scorer(assuming that he does end up as the starter)

 

Edwards value will take a hit but he will still be a very productive LB...he and DJ will also be the nickle backs and while KC plays a variation of the Tampa Cover 2 they use their LBs much like Jax does in that there isnt a true SLB or WLB just a RLB and LLB.

 

Alex Lewis at best is going to be the SLB in Det so I wouldnt get to excited

 

Tulloch will have limited upside unless he can supplant Thornton in the nickle(not likely).

 

Merriman well he didnt move and if there is any question this yr it should be how will he perform if he is truly off the juice...but the one thing i think you can expect is that merriman will not be a consistent scorer...yeah he will me a monster some weeks and almost a ghost in others

 

fwiw in a 32 team league you can easily do worse then what you have

That's Merriman. How will the coaching change affect him?

Yea, but you are talking about a #4 LB in a 32 team league. Best you would expect for a #4 LB would be the 97 best in the league.

 

 

 

As an aside, I saw an early LB ranking 1-51, based on that ranking I have #9, #15 & #35 (Edwards, Meriman & Mitchell, in that order - nice to think of, but seems a bit optimistic to me). The sick thing about it, is using that same early ranking, I only have the 2nd best LB corp in a 32 team leage! T-Bone grades out higher with Witherspoon, Lewis & Scott (6,10 & 21) Bastiduchie! But how about that for a couple of crips?
