IDP Scoring

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.

#12 DL: 84.5

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.

Thanks. I'm not sure we'll adopt all of these, but there are definitely some interesting ideas we might use.

That's a fair point, but generally we try to make the positions across the board as equatable as possible. In other words, I am as much concerned about the 23 point difference between the #1 LB and the #1 DL as wide differences within the positions, which, as you point out, is fairly consistent. It's more about maintaining the talent pool, since owners tend to stock up on LB's, which appears to create a shortage, and DL's tend to get ignored.

Good to hear. We will be discussing this soon in our off-season meeting, but I feel better about what we have and not compelled to make any rash changes.
