ITL Army IDP League First Quarter Update

Published

on

 

Hello there, ITL Nation! FAM here! We are (roughly) a third of the way through the fantasy football season already! Can you believe it? Remember just a few weeks ago, when we doing multiple mock drafts a day, trying to figure out the perfect ADP for every single draft slot? Wait, was that just me? My, how quickly those pre-season ranks fall by the waste side. Before we jump into the current state of the SoMuchFun IDP League, let me remind how much fun it is being in the ITL Army – you get even more access to Bogman and the Welsh, including GroupMe room access, up-to-date rankings, secret shows, and first crack into mock drafts. In my opinion, being in the GroupMe rooms and interacting with all of the other Army members, is well worth the price of admission.

It’s been quite an interesting start to the 3rd season of the IDP League, not unlike the actual NFL season. As I said in my first article, due to the competitive nature of the league, only three of the sixteen teams have made the playoffs in the first two years of its existence – those three teams have a combined 5-7 record so far. There has only been one trade up to this point, with James White, Mohammed Sanu and a 30th round pick going from Cornfield to Evan for a 6th round pick. That’s not for a lack of trying, however – a few of the lower ranked teams are already trying to sell off some pieces for future draft capital. Oh, and, Dan Bailey went for a higher FAAB bid than Ryan Fitzpatrick, which is certainly something to look back at and ponder.

 

 

Joe, the defending champion, has started off slow this year. He’s only averaged 146 points/game, but maybe he’ll start to turn it around with Carson Wentz coming back. On the other side, there are still two undefeated teams remaining, with Trevor and Mark/Stevie leading the way. Trevor’s Team (which is a classic team name) is averaging a ridiculous 222 points/game, but those things tend to happen when you have the best QB of all time.  Yours truly is sitting at a mediocre 2-2, and I currently have seven players listed as questionable, which is always fun. And yes, I’m still bitter about losing my week two matchup 216.60-219.48.

 

 

Bogman and the Welsh have, unfortunately, started in opposite directions so far. Despite scoring over 186 points per game, Bogman has yet to get his first win. Although Tyreek Hill, James Conner, Matt Milano, and Budda Baker are playing well, Trey Burton, Robby Anderson, Ezekiel Ansah, and Deone Bucannon have gotten off to slow starts. He also has Mike Wallace and Mark Ingram on his bench, so hopefully, he’ll start getting some wins once they get healthy. Welsh, the fantastic Shania Twain impersonator that he is, has started off strong (despite the lack of Le’Veon Bell) with a 3-1 record, thanks to Carlos Hyde, Emmanuel Sanders, A-Aron Rodgers, Jordan Hicks, and Cory Littleton all having strong starts.

ITL Army IDP League Third Quarter Update

Published

on

Hello there! FAM here! Welcome to the ITL IDP SoMuchFun League playoff preview! I apologize for the lateness in this update – I was away last weekend in Mexico for a family wedding and was using up all my phone’s battery to follow my Cowboys as they upset the big, high-powered Saints. And let me tell you, it’s always fun being the only Dallas fan in a whole wedding full of Eagles fans. Anywho, enough about me – especially since my team did not make the playoffs here. It’s my first time not making the playoffs in this league, but I just have to shake it off and focus on next year. There’s always a flurry of trades once we get closer to the draft, and my core of Ezekiel Elliott, Julio Jones, DeMarcus Lawrence, and Myles Garrett makes me optimistic for the future. Now, let’s take a closer look at the teams who actually did make the playoffs.

#1 seed Trevor vs #8 seed Jesse: Trevor has only lost once this year, so he earned the 1 seed and then some. Obviously, with a record like that, his team needs to have a lot of elite talent, and Mahomes, Gurley, Alec Ogletree, and JJ Watt certainly qualify as that. Jesse will absolutely put a fight, with Michael Thomas (and his plus matchup against TB), Cooks, red-hot Lamar Miller, Brate, Reshad Jones, Danielle Hunter, and Luke Kuechly. Jesse will also try to take advantage of Trevor’s weak WR corp (Tate, David Moore, MVS) to pull off the big upset. Maybe D’Onta Foreman, Tyler Boyd, or Dion Lewis (all currently on his bench) will help?

#2 seed Stevie/Mark vs #7 seed Craig/Thomas: Some co-owners squaring off in this one, Craig/Thomas have used their 2 top TE strategy to get into the playoffs and they have plenty of talent to make some noise: Brees, OBJ, Diggs, Ertz, Gronk, Derwin James, Josh Adams – several names to make up for weaker RBs. Obviously, Team Stark has talent on their side too – TJ Watt, John Johnson III, Clinton-Dix, Jameis, Juju, Kamara, and the currently “hot guy” Jaylon Samuels. I fully anticipate this being a fight to the finish.

#3 seed Evan vs #6 seed Berg: Two long-time ITL Army members (“first ballot Hall of Famers”, as Welsh likes to say) facing each other in the playoffs. Nothing better than that. Evan’s team is looking real good, lead by Rivers, Evans, CMC, James White, Ebron, Bobby Wagner, and Darius Leonard. Of course, Berg is not going to go down without a fight, as he’ll have Matty Ice, Amari Cooper, both Chicago RBs, Kelce, Kahlil Mack, Calais Campbell, Kiko Alonso, and the GOAT, Leighton Vander Esch, leading his roster.

#4 seed Bogman vs #5 seed John: Bogman is representing the Lords of ITL with his playoff matchup. He’s got a lot of Top Tier Players to make a run in the postseason: Luck, Tyreek Hill, Ingram, Fournette, Burton, Lindsay, Bubba Baker, JPP, Blake Martinez, and Telvin Smith. In his way is John’s lineup, led by Brady, Golladay (if Stafford can get his offense going), Saquon, Aaron Jones, Njoku, Roquan Smith, Cam Jordan, and Avery Williamson. The 4/5 matchups tend to be close affairs, and I expect nothing less with these two teams.

Best of luck to all our playoff teams! And if any of my fellow team managers want to trade me any Dallas Cowboys, I’d be happy to listen!
