A lot of these were expected to be honest but it's good to see some DE value being generated by these position changes.


For the rookies:

Courtney Upshaw getting the T Suggs treatment was nice to see. His rookie value got a nice bump. Same with Bruce Irvin although that was more expected. Ingram, Mercilus and Perry were all expected to get tagged as LBs, no surprises there. Chandler Jones and Shea McClellin both stay at DE despite early reports that both may be asked to stand up at certain points. I expect both to remain DEs.


For the vets:

Wake and Wimbley ending up as 4-3 ends was expected although Miami seems hesitant to commit fully to the 4-3. There is some uncertainty as to how that would be addressed. Sounds like Rotoworld is buying the 4-3 story. Same deal in Buffalo which sees three LBs go to DE (Mario Williams, Chris Kelsay and Shawne Merriman) and two five-technique ends go to tackles (Marcell Dareus and Dwan Edwards). Robert Mathis' value takes a huge hit with his move to 3-4 OLB; one we saw coming but surprisingly enough, Dwight Freeney stays at DE. I don't understand why Freeney wasn't moved and Hughes/Mathis were. Perhaps Rotoworld thinks that Freeney is getting traded. Long story short, if you think that Freeney stays a Colt, now might be the time to trade him. If you think he gets moved, maybe try to sell the position move angle to get a cheaper price.

I drafted Upshaw a little earlier then I normally would of in DW on the hope of this position change. Bu then again I also drafted Ingram but 1 round later at least.

Courtney Upshaw from LB to DE

interesting :thinking:


SEA: Jason Jones from DE to DT- might be nice in DT required leagues


my take on Freeney is they probably expect him to be traded or play the same role as Suggs did in Pagano's defense (same coach and all)

Just a friendly reminder that there will be one more change period at before the regular season starts, and that will be based predominantly upon percentage of snaps taken at a position through TC and the PS.

  • DEN: Derek Wolfe from DT to DE



I knew that Denver said they would move Wolfe around and he would play SOME DE, which was why I liked him as a DT target...really needed help at DT too, now I end up with a DE that I don't think will be all that productive for that position :(
