Philadelphia Eagles defensive coordinator Bill Davis said the team is moving toward using the 3-4 defensive alignment but have not fully moved to the alignment at this point. "Multiple is the best way," Davis said. "I know you guys are tired of that answer. I know you want to hear one or the other or something. What we're doing here is we're taking that wide-nine 4-3 and we're moving in the direction of the 3-4, but where we stop is yet to be determined by the players we have."

Philadelphia Eagles OLB Connor Barwin will probably play three downs next year and has looked comfortable in practices so far. Trent Cole, however, doesn't look like a cozy fit in the team's new 3-4 defense. He won't be asked to drop back much but must learn to consistently set the edge, and the transition may be difficult. Brandon Graham is also a pass-rushing specialist, but Bill Davis' hybrid scheme probably fits him a little better for sack production.
Fantasy Tip: While Barwin might have sneaky value if used properly, Cole and Graham have falling value in IDP leagues; this is a reminder that scheme can hide or remove a player's potential.
