The Hive – Week 6 Edition

The Hive – Week 6 Edition

Welcome
back to The Hive! Last week saw some huge IDP performances, and in some cases
they were from completely unsuspected sources. Many an IDP owner watched
helplessly as Justin Durant had a last minute DNP, and some guy named Russell
Allen put up a ton of points in his place. In the Cleveland Buffalo fiasco, we
saw one of the early season stallions at DB, Abram Elam, be relegated to IDP obscurity
when the Browns employed a 3 man DBBC at his position. This is just another
example of why DB is the most volatile position in IDP.
