​Week 5 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 in Week 1?

William Gholston (DL): 5.5 fantasy points
Akiem Hicks (DL): 5.0 fantasy points
Brian Orakpo (LB): 14.5 fantasy points
Lorenzo Alexander (LB): 20.0 fantasy points
Adrian Amos (DB): 9.0 fantasy points
Mike Mitchell (DB): 6.0 fantasy points

Connor Barwin (DL): 1.5 fantasy points
Erik Walden (LB): 2.0 fantasy points

DL: 12-for-15 (80.0%)
LB: 10-for-15 (66.7%)
DB: 8-for-10 (80.0%)
Overall: 30-for-40 (75.0%)
