Alex,

 

Please Submit:

 

Any ideas you have on how and IDP (for other owners, IDP = Individual Defensive Player) format would work.

  • Position(s) to draft, number of defensive players, defensive scoring format for IDP, ect........

 

Myself and other owners will want to know more details before we would vote to accept/veto this format change.

IDP might be interesting.  We could have a defensive draft only to include IDP players and discard current team defenses.  What are you envisioning?

I don't think we should do this yet, maybe in a couple years we can revisit this idea when everyone has a good understanding on how this league is run.  I think it would just complicate things and confuse people.

If we switched to IDP it might work to have 3 players total as a trial run of how it could work. 1 D-line, 1 linebacker, and 1 secondary.

Thank you for the input JD!

 

I have heard of formats that allow for exactly what you are describing.

 

Any suggestions on a scoring format for the defensive players?

The IDP Guy website has many of the pros and cons of the scoring systems that can help us decide the way we want to score if we decide to go this way

This way of scoring on IPD is slightly more complicated but makes the positions more even instead of having the top positions being all linebackers

  • Tackles
    • Linebackers – 1.75 points
    • Defensive Ends – 3 points
    • Defensive Tackles – 3.5 points
    • Safeties – 2 points
    • Corners – 2 points
  • Assists
    • Linebackers – 1 point
    • Defensive Ends – 1.5 points
    • Defensive Tackles – 1.5 points
    • Safeties – 1 point
    • Corners – 1 point
  • Tackles for Loss
    • Linebackers – 2.5 points
    • Defensive Ends – 3 points
    • Defensive Tackles – 3.5 points
    • Safeties – 2.5 points
    • Corners – 2.5 points
  • Sacks
    • Linebackers – 4 points
    • Defensive Ends – 4.5 points
    • Defensive Tackles 4.5 points
    • Safeties – 4.5 points
    • Corners – 4.5 points
  • QB Hits
    • 0.50 points w/ 1.0 bonus for every 2 for ALL positions
  • Passes Defended
    • Linebackers – 3 points w/ .50 bonus for every 2
    • Defensive Ends – 3 points w/ .50 bonus for every 2
    • Defensive Tackles – 3 points w/ .50 bonus for every 2
    • Safeties – 3 points
    • Corners – 3 points w/ .75 bonus for every 2
  • Fumble Recoveries
    • 5 points for ALL positions
  • Forced Fumbles
    • 3 points for ALL positions
  • Interceptions
    • 5 points for ALL positions
  • Blocked Field Goals

This would be a simple scoring system

  • Tackles (Solo): 1 point
  • Tackle Assists: .5 point
  • Sacks: 2 points

  • Tackles for a Loss:  1 point
  • Quarterback hits: 1 point
  • Passes Defended: 1 point
  • Interceptions: 3 points
  • Fumbles Forced: 3 points
  • Fumbles Recovered: 3 points

For the first year we should only have 3 people one linebacker one d-line and one d-back. The roster limit should be increased by 5 so that each position can have one backup and that leaves one extra spot for anything. The contract year limit can be increased by 10 to allow for the signing but it could be less if prefered.

 

I am for the switching to IDP

The draft can be 6 rounds random serpentine or we could do the auction style that has been requested.

This should have been decided and a draft held, if it was going to happen, before the rookie draft. Table it til next year.
