Home / Commentary / FANTASY SHARKS RADIO: IDP Talk With Dr. Jene Bramel


Summertime has arrived (with a vengeance in Arizona, where even the scorpions are bitching about the heat), organized team activities are underway across the NFL, and before you know it fantasy draft season will be rolling along at full speed.

With that in mind, Fantasy Sharks Individual Defensive Player (IDP) Staff Writer Walton Spurlin and I decided to dedicate a recent episode of “
Kellogg’s Komments

,” the bi-weekly fantasy football podcast that airs on Tuesdays and Saturdays on Blog Talk Radio, to examining the upcoming season from an IDP perspective.

It’s what happens when Greg Kellogg is on vacation and not around to stop me. Serves him right.

We weren’t alone, though. Spurlin and I were joined by a very special guest.
Dr. Jene Bramel

is an IDP Staff Writer at Football Guys and one of the most knowledgeable and respected IDP pundits around.

In addition to Bramel’s work at Football Guys, he’s also a regular contributor to The Fifth Down Blog at

The New York Times, and he shares the unique insights a medical degree affords a fantasy expert regularly at his blog,
The Second Opinion


In the conversation, we discussed the latest news impacting the IDP landscape (including
Sean Lee

’s ACL injury and
Daryl Washington

’s suspension) and also took a position-by-position look at IDPs, from offering our top picks to some sleepers and late-round values.

It’s well worth a listen … preferably while reading some of the other IDP articles here at Fantasy Sharks.
