Home / Commentary / IDP CHEATSHEET: Week 6


We’re five weeks into the 2011 season, and as is often the case with IDPs there’s as much down that is up and as much up that is down. Injuries keep piling up, journeymen are playing like studs (fantasy-wise anyway), studs are barely showing up, and sometimes when setting your IDP lineups it’s hard to know whether to scratch your watch or wind your butt. (Double points if you know that movie reference, as it’s not one that our crowd would generally get)

To assist you in doing so here’s a look at my Top 30 defensive linemen, linebackers, and defensive backs for Week Six of the 2011 season.

These rankings are based on
Default IDP Manor Scoring, which awards 1 point for solos, .5 points for assists, 2 points each for fumbles forced and recovered, 4 points for interceptions, sacks, and safeties, 6 points for defensive touchdowns, and 1 point for passes defensed. It’s a balanced scoring system, so if your IDP league is especially tackle-heavy or big play-heavy some players may move up (or down) a few spots.
