Week 6 Recap

I use balanced scoring (1 point per tackle, 3 per sack) as my “standard”, and I consider 3.0 points a hit for defensive linemen (DL) and defensive backs (DB), with 5.0 points a hit for linebackers (LB).

I value your IDP teams as much as I value my own, so I want to remain accountable to you all in my advice. I provide a weekly recap of my previous recommendations and a running tally of my hits and misses in this column. How did we do last week?

Alan Branch (DL): 7.5 fantasy points
Whitney Mercilus (LB): 11.0 fantasy points
Nick Bellore (LB): 15.5 fantasy points
Ross Cockrell (DB): 7.0 fantasy points

Steve McLendon (DL): 2.5 fantasy points
Quinton Dial (DL): 1.5 fantasy points
Donald Butler (LB): 0.0 fantasy points
Marcus Gilchrist (DB): 2.5 fantasy points

DL: 13-for-18 (72.2%)
LB: 12-for-18 (66.7%)
DB: 9-for-12 (75.0%)
Overall: 34-for-48 (70.8%)
