It does take some work and research to learn about them but I would personally be happy to give anyone a crash course in IDPs if they wanted to learn more about them. ;-D

Agreed. Team Defenses and re-draft dull the entire experience for me...I think it is very frustrating when some guy picks up a ff mag on the way to the draft and is handed the #1 or #2 pick and then has a good year.

You mean me last year?

Where are the top IDP players valued at? Players such as Shawne Merriman.

I usually rely on injuries and the waiver wire to bring those newbs down. ;-D

as do I... they can get lyucky with the draft, I'll hawk the wire and trade until they are nothing... they can go by their mag and make a bad trade! :-b

Merriman really isn't a "top" IDP player really, the best IDP players are normally guys like Zach Thomas, Keith Bulluck, London Fletcher, and last year DeMeco Ryans was one of the best. But where IDPs are valued usually depends pretty heavily on the scoring system in place, if very little points are given to IDPs in comparison to the offense or if you don't start very many, then there's no point in taking them before the end of the draft. But in normal leagues, the top IDPs start going around round 6 or so.

I play in an IDP only league. 4x DB, 4x DL, 1x D and 1x K.

Quite some fun since it's more unpredictable than normal leagues.
