“There’s nowhere to go but up.” When you are down on your luck, this is one of the last phrases you want to hear, no matter how true or appropriate it is.
But what does one say to someone who has reached the pinnacle of achievement in their field? “There’s nowhere to go but down” seems like you’re just waiting for them to fail, but – at risk of plagiarizing Spinal Tap – one wonders how much more up they can go, and the answer seems to be none; none more up.
That’s the interesting position Vic Fangio finds himself in after accepting the head-coaching position for the Denver Broncos, just a year removed from bringing the Chicago Bears’ defense to the absolute top of the pile in 2018. Fangio will be tasked with redeeming the Denver defense after his Windy City reclamation project, but we’re less concerned with that undertaking than what it means for us as players in Individual Defensive Players (IDP) fantasy football leagues.
Can Vic Fangio’s new tenure in Denver raise his IDP’s a mile high, or will the hype come crashing down?
He also likes coffee. You can talk to him about IDP, other dynasty things, and various caffeinated beverages on Twitter at @JayArrNFL.
