Welcome to the newest addition to the RotoHeat family of podcasts, the Heatseekers IDP Show (and Livestream!). We will be talking all things defensive players, and in the first episode we are recapping the first half of our IDP startup draft that we did over the month of June. If you want to reach out to any of us, or ask follow-up IDP questions, you can find myself or Kraig Rueth over on Twitter, and Paul Veldboom over in our Facebook community.
