What's wrong man, you scared?
More than half of the people in the league didn't know anything about IDPs before but ask them now if they want them taken out and I'll bet you they all say no. :lol:
Trust me bro, it's a GREAT element to add to fantasy football as you'll appreciate extra defense and not just DST and offense.

NOOOOOOOOO! Do not take out IDP's!!!!!!! Defense needs more love than just being grouped together as a whole. LPJ is right in that I would be totally mad if our league had no IDP's involved. When I joined the league, I wasn't familiar with playing FF in such a way and now that I've experienced such a thing, I do not want to revert back to just offensive players getting all of the love. It's more challenging and more fun to have individual defensive players involved in the outcome!

Now, if only LPJ would get the scoring right... :twisted:

I mean, the same points for a fumble recovery, a blocked kick, and a solo tackle? C'mon man! The rarity, and magnitude of the event should warrant more points for certain defensive plays.

Wow we could potentially have a 10 team league this year!!! That means every manager will have a stacked team and good free agents may still be out there for free agency.

If anyone would like to join, please pm me your email address so I can add you. If you were in the league last year and your invite is no longer valid, please let me know and I will resend.

DS... I agree with the block kicks to 2 points so that was changed but for the DST it will remain at 1 point. Fumble recovery is STILL at 1.5, force fumble is 1, and solo tackle is 1. You agree we're good to go now?

Closer, but I still think rarer, game-changing, plays like forced fumbles, blocked kicks, INTs, should be at least 3 points (probably even more), defensive TDs should be worth more than 6, and don't get me started on the FGs. lol
Of course, I'm talking about IDPs, not DSTs. You could do away with the DSTs completely, for all I care.

Ohhh k than.

So no more changes basically cuz I'm not giving any IDP 3 points for anything.

DC-Ru said he's in so we now have 11.

A sliding scale would be awesome.

For misses it could be -3 for 17 yards, -0 for 77+ yards, and for the 60 yards in between it could change by .05 points for every yard beyond 17.

For makes it could be +3 for 17 yards, +6 for 77+yards, and for the 60 yards in between it could again change by .05 points for every yard beyond 17.

I'll write to Yahoo! They could have inputs for the range and the point values at each end and their computer could do the rest.
