Only .25 for assists and .5 for solo tackles though so his lack of tackles shouldn't hurt too much. IDPs are way low scorers though, the highest scoring IDP put up only 120 pts last year.
If you wanna play a great IDP leauge check this out.
In my league we worked out a scoring system that really values IDPs too.
Top scorers by position last year:
QB P Manning 344.28 (1st)
QB D Brees 271.85 (2nd)
QB M Hasselback 128.01 (21st)
Only 11 QB scored more then the top DB and only 8 scored more then the top DL
RB LT 365.60 (1st)
RB S Jackson 269.47 (2nd)
RB R Brown 116.80 (24th)
WR M Harrison 204.60 (1st)
WR T Owens 201.00 (2nd)
WR L Fitzgerald 131.60 (24th)
DL L Fletcher 191.75 (1st)
DL Z Thomas 179.00 (2nd)
DL S Merriman 132.00 (24th) - Outscored M Hasselback, Thomas Jones, T Henry
DB T McGee 167.00 (1st)
DB C Hope 164.50 (2nd)
DB M Williams 122.00 (25th) - Outscored Ronnie Brown!!
So you really gotta know these guys. And if you think you can take them at end of the draft you are toast.
If interested I can give U the scoring settings.
