Colts | Robert Mathis motivated by doubters

Mon, 29 Jul 2013 20:55:36 -0700

Some have openly wondered if Indianapolis Colts DL Robert Mathis can be as effective now that his friend and former teammate DE Dwight Freeney (Broncos) has moved on. The team combined to top 20 sacks as a duo five times. He is now playing with a much younger cast, and he is acting as a mentor, too. "There's kind of an age gap, like 10 years or so," Mathis said Monday, July 29. "It's more like big brother-little brother relationship. I just bring them in and show the how Colts football (is)."

Chargers | Confident in Dwight Freeney

Wed, 12 Jun 2013 16:53:20 -0700

San Diego Chargers head coach Mike McCoy is confident in OLB Dwight Freeney. There are concerns that Freeney is out of place if he's not a 4-3 defensive end, but McCoy said the veteran will fit in because San Diego often uses multiple looks on passing downs.

Fantasy Tip: In theory, that would preserve some of Freeney's ability to get to the QB, despite the fact he's 33 years old. Still, there's a bit of fantasy intrigue to San Diego's defense for which you probably won't have to pay a big price.

Chargers | Dwight Freeney comfortable in new defense

Thu, 06 Jun 2013 09:35:28 -0700

San Diego Chargers DE Dwight Freeney said he's comfortable in the team's new defense under coordinator Chuck Pagano. Freeney didn't seem comfortable with the Indianapolis Colts in a 3-4 defensive scheme last year, but the Chargers also run a 3-4. "I think the biggest thing was that, he was going to allow me to do a little bit of what I do," said Freeney, who will be used as an edge rusher on the right side. "It wasn't, 'Dwight, here, we're going to take you and put you in this thing and do things that you're not used to doing.' He said, 'You know what, we're going to put you in place to make plays, in familiar places, so that you're comfortable and you can just ball out.'"

Fantasy Tip: Freeney has been in rapid decline the last several seasons, and a change in defensive scheme rendered him largely useless last year, as he had just five sacks. He probably won't be used on an every-down basis in SD, but he could be more productive in limited time if he's getting after opposing quarterbacks consistently. Still, he proabably is only worth a late-round flier in deep IDP leagues.

Giants | Dwight Freeney interested

Thu, 16 May 2013 12:48:19 -0700

Free-agent LB Dwight Freeney (Colts) would love a chance to play for the New York Giants, according to his father. The Giants would likely look to sign him to a veteran-minimum deal, and Freeney would seem to fit that former DL Osi Umenyiora occupied. However, the Giants have plenty of other options for the defensive line at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Freeney would be a much better fit with the Giants, but their lack of salary cap space and crowded defensive line cast probably rules them out. Freeney can probably get more money with another team, and he'll likely go with that instead.

Chargers | Impressed with Dwight Freeney

Thu, 16 May 2013 10:27:17 -0700

The San Diego Chargers were impressed with their visit with free-agent LB Dwight Freeney (Colts), and head coach Mike McCoy would consider altering their defensive scheme to accommodate him. The Chargers use a base 3-4 defense, but Freeney was less effective in that setup with the Indianapolis Colts last season when he moved to outside linebacker. Freeney is a top priority for the Bolts after they lost LB Melvin Ingram (knee) to a season-ending knee injury last week.

Fantasy Tip: Freeney isn't a very good fit at all for another 3-4 defensive scheme, which is why the Bolts are considering changing their defense around to fit him. This probably isn't the best idea, either, but they seem desperate with Ingram out for the year and Manti Te'o in his first season. Freeney probably isn't worth an IDP draft pick if he signs with SD or another 3-4 defensive club.
