Fantasy Football IDP Rankings for Week 17 (Top 100)

Fantasy Football IDP Rankings for Week 16 (Top 100)

It's championship week, at least for the vast majority of fantasy football players. Your lineup decisions are tougher than ever, as you must weigh which is more important: upside or safety. If you are looking for a few tackles to avoid a goose egg in the points column, there are plenty of options out there... Read More

Fantasy Football IDP Rankings for Week 15 (Top 100)

One of the great things about implementing IDP in fantasy football is that it balances out some of the insanity that the offensive players produce in some weeks. If you started a lineup with Jimmy Garoppolo, Raheem Mostert, Boston Scott, A.J. Brown, Darius Slayton, and Noah Fant then you undoubtedly crushed your opponent while a... Read More

Fantasy Football IDP Rankings for Week 14 (Top 100)

The fantasy playoffs are here for most of us, so every position matters that much more. IDP spots often become an afterthought or a set-it-and-forget-it situation but it could be that linebacker who has a monster game or that key interception that makes the difference between winning or going home. Look to our streamer suggestions... Read More

Fantasy Football IDP Rankings for Week 13 (Top 100)

Happy belated Turkey Day! Many of you are probably suffering some sort of Thanksgiving hangover, whether it be food, beer, or Cowboys-related. If it cheers you up, just know that this Sunday features a near-full slate of games still, as bye weeks are over! Which defensive players can help push you through this weekend and... Read More

Fantasy Football IDP Rankings for Week 12 (Top 100)

You know how some weeks are full of high scores across the board, with most teams putting up 30+ points and piling up highlights on the offensive end? I don't get that feeling this week. My gut says that several games, even those already on the low end of the O/U spectrum, will fall short... Read More

Fantasy Football IDP Rankings for Week 11 (Top 100)

Don't underestimate the power of the IDP. We've already seen Joe Schobert put up a monster game on Thursday night with a sack, seven solo tackles, and two interceptions. Jamal Adams may have won some games single-handedly last week with his strip-sack for a TD along with eight tackles and another sack. Likewise, Jadveon Clowney... Read More

Fantasy Football IDP Rankings for Week 10 (Top 100)

Hopefully you weren't burned by the last-minute scratch of Leighton Vander Esch last week. We'll omit him from this week's rankings until we know for sure his neck issues won't keep him out again. His absence allowed Sean Lee to look like his old self, racking up 12 tackles (nine solo), with one for loss... Read More

Fantasy Football IDP Rankings for Week 9 (Top 100)

Three of the top offenses in the league are taking a break this week, which could result in some lower-scoring games. New quarterbacks in Denver and Washington could lead to promising defensive performances from their opponents. As always, those who play in IDP leagues should balance safety at the linebacker position with some risk at... Read More

Fantasy Football IDP Rankings for Week 8 (Top 100)

Back to another short bye, where only the Ravens and Cowboys will rest. A couple of high-end LBs will need to be replaced but otherwise there aren't many significant gaps in player availability. With offenses exploding recently, it's a fair question to ask whether players on top-flight units like the Bears Defense and 49ers Defense... Read More

Fantasy Football IDP Rankings for Week 7 (Top 100)

Luckily for fantasy owners in IDP leagues, Week 7 sees the return of Darius Leonard to the field (and our top 10 ranks), as well as the Bears Defense. While perennial stud Luke Kuechly, exciting rookie Devin Bush, and surprising DPOY candidate Shaquil Barrett are on bye, we aren't losing too much from the player... Read More

Fantasy Football IDP Rankings for Week 6 (Top 100)

Week 6 is here and we roll on with our weekly lineup recommendations. Some of the best defenses in football are on bye (Chicago, Buffalo) so it's likely that fantasy owners in IDP leagues will need to scour the waiver wire for help at one position or another. That's why we're here, not just to... Read More

Fantasy Football IDP Rankings for Week 5 (Top 100)

The offenses are waking up, even on Thursday nights. That means harder times for team defenses, especially in leagues where points scored against are factored. Fortunately, IDP players can benefit from seeing the opposing offense on the field over and over again. More tackles mean more points, after all. Linebackers dominate the top 20 as... Read More

Fantasy Football IDP Rankings for Week 4 (Top 100)

Darius Leonard is out again, several key players hit IR, and Jalen Ramsey found about 99 reasons to sit out this week's game. Plus, two teams are on bye, so it may be time to dig a little deeper for IDP gems in Week 4. Dedicated fantasy football players know that the game isn't played... Read More

Fantasy Football IDP Rankings for Week 3 (Top 100)

As we enter Week 3 of the fantasy football season, some key injuries are already affecting the defensive side of the ball. Colts linebacker Darius Leonard, typically a lock as a top-five IDP pick, will miss the contest against Atlanta, as will teammate Jabaal Sheard. On the other side, Falcons LB Deion Jones is asserting... Read More

Fantasy Football IDP Rankings for Week 2 (Top 100)

The serious fantasy footballer knows that the game isn't played on offense alone. While team defenses are a staple of the game, being able to identify value with individual defensive players (IDP) takes it to the next level. As we do with each position and every league type possible, RotoBaller has you covered when it... Read More

2019 IDP Draft Sleepers

I've been playing in IDP leagues for the last couple of years, but I've never ventured into the world of writing about IDP leagues. But one goal I have as a fantasy analyst is to expand my horizon a little each year, and this year that goal is to write some about IDP leagues. To... Read More

Dynasty IDP Rookie Linebacker Risers and Fallers (Part 2)

Linebackers are a very situation-dependant position in IDP fantasy football, regardless of your scoring. If you aren't on the field consistently, you probably won't produce consistently. This makes landing spot and draft capital more important for linebacker than for any other position. With the 2019 NFL Draft in the books, we can finally take a... Read More

Dynasty IDP Rookie Linebackers - Tier Two

In IDP fantasy football leagues, linebackers often make up the bulk of your roster and the majority of your production from the defensive side of your team. People are rightly excited about the top two linebackers in this 2019 rookie linebacker class. Devin White and Devin Bush are both very talented linebackers, and at least... Read More

Devin White vs. Devin Bush - Top Rookie IDP Linebackers

One of the few things that is considered consensus among the NFL Draft community is that the top two linebackers in the upcoming 2019 NFL Draft are Devin White out of LSU and Devin Bush out of Michigan.

Week 1 IDP - Waiver Wire Targets and Adds

As we head into week one of the regular season, owners in IDP leagues (particularly new ones) tend to get hot and heavy for the latest and greatest free-agent to land with a new team or the high-end rookie that went early in the draft.  That’s all well and good, but chances are high that...
