Hi Tom, interesting read. Could you explain for me in the second table the first two columns? The ones labeled “average” and “count”. What are those referring to specifically?

Very good, work, Tom! Always good to explore anecdotal truths to see if they hold water or not! I will definitely be careful to not assume anything when a pass rusher is added or subtracted from a team from here on out!

Tom,

Love the IDP articles! I was able to include Bobby Wagner to get a Travis Kelce trade done and found some likely replacements on the waiver wire.

My question is: what about players at the DL designation? I used Za’Darius Smith as my DL since he qualified there and was the 2nd highest scoring DL behind TJ Watt. I would love to know your thoughts on “hacking” this position or maybe even see an article on this!

The 2 leagues I have with IDP play 1 DL, 1 LB, 1 DB, 1 flex, so definitely on the shallow end.
