I took a flier on Tom Zbikowski...and have yet to see him in the preseason. He's currently on my bench, what are your thoughts on him now?

You're gonna want to remove Desmond Bishop from your '12 rankings!

Hy Monk,

I'm in a 20 team tackle heavy IDP league(2DT 2DE 3LB 2CB 2S).
This is what I managed to get:

DT: Kyle Williams, Alan Branch
DE: Elvis Dumervil, Carlos Dunlap, Andre Branch
LB: Colin McCarthy, Karlos Dansby, Kavell Conner, Wesley Woodyard, Bruce Carter
CB: Charles Woodson, Vontae Davis
S: Mark Barron, Kerry Rhodes, Tom Zbikowski, Brandon Merieweather(waiver addon)

I think I had a good draft for a 20 team league. I managed to get at least one stud for every position. I'm probably set at DE and LB, maybe S too. However I'm a bit thin at DT and CB. Do you have any deep sleepers that still could be on the waiver in such a deep league? (If you are interested I could post the pick history.)

By the way I love your blog. I've been reading it for 2 years. Keep up the good work.

Thanks for the advice!

I've managed to stash away Peters and Brockers on my IR joining Phil Taylor (4 spots), and I picked up Poe instead of Alan Branch.
I also picked up Cason instead of Meriweather.

Hi Monk,

I am in an IDP league that scores big plays higher than normal leagues plus we have 12 teams starting 10 idp each: D, D, D, D, DB, DB, DB, DL, LB, LB. Scoring is 2pt tkl, 1 pt assist, 3 tkl for loss, 8 sack, 10 for int or ff or fr etc.

I was offered Lofton for Wake. I drafted Wake with expectations of a breakout however I'm not sure my current LB are good enough.

Here's my IDP roster: D-Umenyiora, Hightower, Conner, Rob Mathis DB- G. Wilson, D. Hall, K. Coleman DL- Wake LB- Ray Lewis, M. Foster

Hi Monk,

I am in a 12 team IDP league and each team starts 10 idp in the following positions: D, D, D, D, DB, DB, DB, DL, LB, LB

I was offered Lofton for my Cam Wake. I'm a bit hestitant to move Wake since I think he's gonna have a big season but Lofton had a huge year last season. HOWEVER, now he is in New Orleans AND already banged up.

Also, my league is big play heavy (2 pt tkl, 1 ast, 3 tkl for loss, 3 pd, 8 sack, 10 int+ff+fr etc.)

Given my IDP roster below, should I trade away Cameron Wake for Curtis Lofton?

D-Umenyiora, Conner, Rob Mathis, D. Hightower DB- G. Wilson, D. Hall, K. Coleman DL- Wake LB- Ray Lewis, M. Foster

Hi Monk:

Tyvon Branch

Thanks for your response, Jon.
