Our IDP rankings below are shown as an average of two analysts' rankings: Mike Clay, ESPN Insider fantasy football writer, and Jim McCormick, who has provided rankings for ESPN for many years. They will rank 50 players at each of these three positions: defensive line, linebacker and defensive back.

Players not ranked by either Mike or Jim will receive a ranking value of 60 for the purposes of the composite rankings. In the charts below, you will see an "NR" to denote a player who was not ranked by that individual.

Because scoring systems can vary greatly in IDP formats, these rankings are based on the following scoring criteria:

  • Solo tackle: 1.5 points

  • Assisted tackle: 0.75 points

  • Tackle for loss: 2 points

  • Sack: 4 points

  • Interception: 5 points

  • Forced fumble: 4 points

  • Fumble recovery: 4 points

  • Defensive TD: 6 points

  • Safety: 2 points

  • Pass defensed: 1.5 points
