The 2016 RotoViz Scouting IDP Diary
We have an excellent offensive rookie draft prospect tracking system here at RotoViz. I hope to give those that wish to follow IDP something similar, but in a different format.
Much love to Charles Kleinheksel for pumping out five scouting indexes prior to February. I will try a different approach to keep our IDP readers up to date. The six sites we are using at RotoViz (DraftTek, NFL Draft Geek, Walter Football, Ourlads, CBS Sports, and Rotoworld) have differing methods of tracking their rankings, so I’ve got this ridiculous spreadsheet to track all of them that I wouldn’t dare confuse you with. Because position designations are more fluid on defense and schemes matter, I can’t just offer a table of composite rankings.
Scheme is so important in IDP, and I’ll track potential scheme fits in order to identify safe IDP performers with upside. Opportunity plays a big role as well. As a fantasy player, I’m a value shopper. I’ll be looking to find guys that, when given the right role, have a chance to hit. As I drill down I’ll be looking for those later round gems so that I can spend my early rookie picks on offensive players.
