Rotoviz IDP Scouting Index: 2017 Version 2

The RotoViz Scouting Index (RSI) IDP version uses a variety of rankings that aren’t consistent across the board, as some scouting sites group all defensive line and linebackers together, and others separate them into edge rushers and outside or inside linebackers. I’m tracking the sites that separate the strong and free safeties as well as the different types of linebackers and defensive lineman. Most sites have posted updated NFL prospect rankings following the NFL combine, so let’s update our index…....

The 2017 Rotoviz IDP Scouting Index

Our official 2017 Rotoviz Scouting Index (RSI) is off and running with multiple editions tracking the early player movement at the offensive skill positions. Last year Charles Kleinheksel already had five offensive editions out before I published the first defensive version. This year he has four editions in before mine so I’m getting quicker.  …...

Corey Clement, RB – 2017 Draft Prospect

Wisconsin (10-3) will face undefeated Western Michigan (13-0) in the Cotton Bowl on Monday, January 2nd. Corey Clement is Wisconsin’s primary running back at 5-foot-11-inches, 227-pounds and 22.1 years of age. Clement comes into this game as Wisconsin’s leader in rushing yards and his yardage ranks second in the Big 10. Clement posted the best game of his career in the Big 10 Championship against Penn State when he totaled 161 yards on 21 carries which included a 67-yard touchdown run. PRODUCTION With Melvin Gordon having one of the NCAA’s all-time rushing total years in 2014, Clement was still able to…...

The Wrong Green Bay Defensive Back is Being Drafted

I noticed Ha Ha Clinton-Dix currently has an ADP a few notches higher than Morgan Burnett, so I decided to project each for 2016. Recency bias is a key factor in any fantasy format and in season long leagues it must be dealt with. I analyzed Burnett and Clinton-Dix’s statistical dynamics in Green Bay and believe this information could help to save fantasy players from drafting the wrong guy relative to their current ADP. RECENCY BIAS TRAP Injury discounts are typically plentiful on the offensive side of the ball and I believe they’re potentially more lucrative in IDP. The reason is that offense-only analysis is thoroughly run through the fantasy…...

Kwon Alexander is Criminally Undervalued

Now that a good amount of ADP and rankings data is coming in there are some conclusions that I’ve drawn based on my projections at each position…....

Three Candidates To Be the Next Kwon Alexander

I believe there are at least three rookie linebackers who have three-down ability, and most importantly you can take them deep into your rookie drafts. Last year I suggested bypassing the big names at linebacker in your rookie drafts and instead draft a linebacker such as Kwon Alexander much later.  I even told you to sign Kwon for five years and if you followed my advice you’re sitting pretty at linebacker right now. Kwon Alexander was a fourth-round draft pick that wasn’t even being picked in the top 10 at his position this time last season, yet he finished as the 20th ranked…...

No Clarity on Jordan Howard and other Running Back Updates

There have been three updates of the Rotoviz Scouting Index (RSI) since the NFL combine and there have been some winners and losers during that timeframe. Shawn Siegele did a thorough job of breaking down the different comps associated with the post-combine time period. I’ll go through the movements of the last three RSI which are version eight, nine and ten. All of these are authored by the great Charles Kleinheksel.  As Charles pointed out in his recent update, the biggest riser in the RSI over time has been Wendell Smallwood and following him was Tyler Ervin. Those that fell the most were Tre…...

DJ Foster and Other Running Back Updates

The Pre-Combine Rotoviz Scouting Index (RSI) was just released and running back positions 10-20 are in flux following the NFL Combine invitations. This week I will touch on potential Charles Sims clones in the 2016 class, Marshaun Coprich, and my latest obsession: DJ Foster…....
