I also need to cut about 4-5 IDP players. Recommendations?
DT (start 1): Irving, Dareus
DE (start 2): Mario Addison, Vic Beasley, Jerry Hughes, Noah Spence, Cameron Wake
LB (start 2-4): Telvin Smith, Reuben Foster, DBucannon, Darren Lee, B McKinney, JBostic, Navarro Bowman
CB (start 1-3): Darby
S (start 1-3) : Budda Baker, Tyvon Branch, Quandre Diggs, Matthias Farley, Micah Hyde, Adrian Phillips
League has a slight bias for big play with yardage for splash plays like return/defensive TD, sacks, fumbles, interceptions.
are your blue chip/ keepers.Green
are the guys id err towards keeping if possible, but are vulnerable.Red
guys id absolutely cut as things stand
Everyone else, imho, is potentially expendable as things stand. Some have more upside than others. It'll come down to your personal preference, overall roster makeup, draft picks available & whats on the waiver wire as to who will go.
Couple of interesting guys/ situations to watch out for?Cam Wake & Adrian Phillips.
With Wake itll depend on fitness and snap counts ... With Phillips, what they do at LB in LA. Reason he was hot last season is they were using him as an emergency LB thanks to a glut of injuries (Perryman, Jatavis etc). If they continue to do that? Hes another green or potentially even a blue. If they dont? Not worth a lot.
Both are volatile stock. Going to be worth more to the current owner than anyone else and either be worth something or nothing with little in between.Bucannon
Would consider trading him away, but *only* if you can get the price you want (So dont do it at cutdowns!) and *only* if youre not
in a championship window.
Its not that i dont like him (I put him in Blue
, dont forget! )but the bigger picture doesnt make it a bad idea (Slightly smaller than the norm means he plays nicked up a bit + its a good/ deep LB class this year) to kick around either.
If he can perform more like he did in yrs 1 & 2 and less like 3 & 4, selling might be sub optimal, but this early, its personal pref. Be interesting to see how he does a Will - hes certainly got the speed & instincts for it, if not the bulk.
So, if youre in a "Championship window"? Ignore this.
If you have holes elsewhere, though? This is a draft class (perhaps barring impact WRs) - esp at QB, RB & LB - that is a good one to stock up on.
