In fantasy football, there are some new trends that I enjoy writing about: dynasty leagues, and individual defensive player leagues. This weekly column will combine two of those by discussing two young IDPs. I will give my scouting thoughts on how they played a particular week. Today I will be discussing the Jets linebacker Demario Davis and Saints safety Kenny Vaccaro.
LB-Demario Davis, NYJ- In Rex Ryan’s defense, the young linebacker got forced into lining up against various talented Patriots offense players: tight end Tim Wright, wide receiver Julian Edelman, and running back Shane Vereen in pass defense. Davis did not fare well against the tight end or wide receiver as he fell down a few times due to their suddenness versus his lack of quickness. I was quite surprised that Tom Brady did not go after the linebacker more as he was clearly a liability in the Jets weak pass defense. He did have some good battles with Vereen, but got beaten on the back’s second touchdown catch of the night.
