IDP Rankings 2018

IDP RankingsFantasy football leagues that include Individual Defensive Players (IDP) are not your average run of the mill fantasy leagues. Usually, IDP leagues are taken more seriously and have a higher level of commitment.

IDP Draft Advice

The best advice for anyone new to IDP Fantasy Football is to study the scoring format in great detail. While some may argue there is a standard IDP scoring to most leagues, usually league commissioners will add custom IDP scoring to keep owners on their toes.

The best way to find the value of an IDP player in comparison to an offensive player is to figure out the fantasy scoring average points per game for the top IDP players in your league. If Joey Bosa’s average fantasy points per game were 12.6 in your leagues scoring format last season, then you know he is as valuable as an elite WR. However, if your scoring format is much lower for IDP players, then you should lower them accordingly on your IDP Rankings board.

IDP Positional Advice
  • Defensive Ends (DE)  “All or Nothing” – A sack in IDP leagues is usually the equivalent to a touchdown. An elite IDP stud could win you a week with a multiple sack performance. However, there is also the risk that DE’s are shut down. Most DE’s aren’t racking up the tackles, so be prepared for this when drafting. The best DE’s to target are those who play in a 4-3 base defense
  • Defensive Tackles (DT) “Kickers of IDP” – Defensive tackles don’t get a lot of tackles, nor are they known for sacks. The best fantasy defensive tackle usually ranks as the 15th to 20th best defensive lineman depending on scoring formats.
  • Linebackers (LB) “Position is Everything” – In IDP leagues, the MLB is usually more active in gaining tackles, whereas an LB that plays on the outside has a better chance to gain more sacks, or interceptions depending on the type of defensive scheme they play in.
  • Cornerbacks (CB) “Avoid The Elite” – Often an offensive game plan is to attack a bad corner and avoid an elite CB, so in IDP fantasy football, there is a theory that you want to draft CB2’s if your scoring format is high for tackles and CB1’s if your scoring is high with INT’s. Again, the scoring of a fantasy league with IDP players can really shake up defensive back IDP rankings.
  • Safeties (SS) “Sleeper in the Right Scheme” – A safety that is active in helping a defense stop the run can rack up a large number of tackles.
