We've been using IDP for 3 years now, and what we've found is our current scoring system favors LB's and DB's, while DL's lag behind significantly (with one notable exception this year):

Starters: 1 DL, 1 LB, 1 DB, 1 IDP flex
Bench: 2 IDP

6 per TD, 1 per tackle, 0.5 per assist, 4 per sack, 4 per interception, 2 per forced fumble, 2 per fumble recovery, 1 per pass defended.

Season scores (over 13-week regular season):
#1 LB: 159.5 points (for reference, #2 LB: 153.0)
#6 LB: 135.0
#12 LB: 128.0

#1 DB: 169.5 (for reference, #2 DB: 123.5)
#6 DB: 110.5
#12 DB: 104.0

#1 DL: 136.5 (for reference, #2 DL: 110.0)
#6 DL: 92.5
#12 DL: 84.5

So, for those with more IDP experience, is this current imbalance normal/acceptable, or is there something we should consider to make DL's more competitive?

That's pretty standard scoring for those positions. DL will always lag behind unless it's a big play scoring league.

Big caveat: I don't play in any leagues with IDP.

That said - the difference between the #X and #12 for each...

LB
#1: 31.5
#2: 25.0
#6: 7.0

DB:
#1: 65.5
#2: 19.5
#6: 6.5

DL:
#1: 52.0
#2: 25.5
#6: 8.0

That's not THAT bad, is it? If anything, this is showing that drafting top overall LB (in 2016, at least) is relatively unimportant, relative to the #2 choice, compared to the #1 overall DB and DL. Settling for the #2 overall at each position gets you about the same total net points, as does taking the #6 overall.

I base my IDP scoring on a couple articles that just made a heck of a lot of sense to me.
