Wow. Big changes indeed! They nailed a lot of them, but others are questionable. If that big far Darius plays outside, I could be in trouble. Robey won't be playing safety outside of maybe a handful of plays this season. Very pleased with most of the changes as they are well past due.

In my opinion, Dareus is the biggest impact.

Yeah I knew Mario would likely switch. I am holding out hope that Buf still designates him as DE.

Untouched by this in RW but it did damage me in a few leagues.

Very big changes... Be weird to see DE mainstay Jared Allen as a LB... Buffalo seemed to be particularly affected.

Its about time they got these guys put into their right positions. I agree, if Dareus is moved to DE that is big indeed

in the past, if you are the commish of a league, you can see this within one of the commish settings.

Hmm. Kyle Williams is 303 lbs, while Darius is 331 lbs. I wonder which one will play DT.

It could be another classic MFL / rotoworld multi-position-swap through the pre-season.

I've read articles with opinions suggesting each player would play DT so wouldn't be surprised if this changes again - maybe more than once - before week 1.

end it

Big sigh of relief. At some point, Rotoworld had changed Chandler/Ninko to LB I think.

The Bills will use Kyle Williams at defensive end in Rex Ryan's 3-4.
Analysis: He'll be a "five technique," the same position Williams played under Mike Pettine in 2013. Williams recorded 68 tackles and a career-high 10.5 sacks that season, adding one forced fumble. Marcell Dareus will play nose tackle under Rex.

As I expected.

I thought MFL used rotoworld for player positions... They do not currently match on a few people...

I think MFL just plays copy cat to rotoworld, updating their database on a not so frequent basis.

But their most recent update did not follow Rotoworld. That is what I find confusing. It is like someone at MFL said these guys will player this spot, be damned what rotoworld says....

I think rotoworld has already made changes since then. I'm pretty sure MFL copies it exactly. It probably doesn't take more than a day for MFL to get behind again.

There were definitely earlier changes in rotoworld that weren't part of the MFL update so I'm with Dave, the logics is a little strange

On this page Williams is a LB but Dareus is a NT.

Not sure witch one they use but their site conflicts with MFL one way or the other...

Ok, your first post said Darues was a DE on MFL.

They do updates periodically, maybe Rotoworld changed him after the last update. They usually do one around week 4 in the pre-season.

Anyone know if/when MFL locks down the position designation for a season? Is there some definite date at which we can trust that no more changes will occur?

From the MFL site:

Why is a player listed at the wrong position? Or, what happens if a player changes the position he plays during the season?
Answer: We use Rotoworld.com as our official source for all player positions. While we have full confidence in their classification of players, some players (especially defensive players) play at multiple positions, making classification more difficult.

We synchronize our player positions to match the Rotoworld.com depth charts during the preseason. Then after the season starts, we generally don't make site-wide position changes, so it is up to your league commissioner to decide how to handle position changes after the season starts.

Regardless of how Rotoworld.com has a player position listed, the commissioner can use the For Commissioners > Setup > Players and Rosters > Change Player Position option to over-ride any of our default positions with positions that you think are more appropriate for your league.

He's asking for a specific date.

I don't think there is one.

Based on past years it will likely be right before the season starts, guessing somewhere between August 29th and September 7th. Then there should be no in-season changes.

I was reading the question as more of whether we can trust the designations once the season starts. And that answer appears to be yes.

In the league I Commish, I already change 3-4 outside LBs to DEs, so these changes don't bother me.  Unless they move a guy from DE back to LB!!  Then I have to go back in a change it again Mad

In an alternate universe that I reside in we have no football and I dont have to make any changes for my fantasy league.

I made it through relatively unscathed for once.  The Ryan Davis one is the only one that hurts me.  But I was hoping to see Mack change position as well.

When I saw Kikaha at DE when it appeared he was starting at LB, I was hoping that would ride for the season. Also nabbed Hal while he was still listed as a CB a few days ago.

The watch list sucks. I've emailed MFL about it a few times and always get the same answer. "Thanks for the suggestion - something we'll definitely consider for a future site enhancement!"

That is them lying through their teeth.

There's nothing I can do. Sorry man.
