OK, I am not an IDP expert by any means, but in my transferring these to Excel, I notice something that took me by surprise. First of all, you have Demarcus Ware ranked 26th. That took me by surprise, but not near as much as the fact you have Zach Thomas listed before him. :-? :-?

Regardless, good rankings and I have compiled them into Excel for those who want a downloadable version. Hope you don't mind. I did give you credit in the final version which can be downloaded here.

Enjoy. :-D

EDIT: It might give you some problems with the security settings or macros, if so, let me know. There's a macro in there to take out all numbers and ". " in the selection. Great for turning:

While DeMarcus Ware's sack potential is great, he doesn't get near as many solo tackles that Zach Thomas has potential for. In a league that counts solo tackles (typically 1 point), Thomas could outscore Ware.

Also nice job with the spreadsheet. ;-D

In this scoring system:
Tackle: 1.00 point each
Assist: 0.50 points each
Sack: 2.00 points for every 0.50
PD: 1.00 point each
INT: 5.00 points each
INTTD: 6.00 points each
FF: 3.00 points each
FR: 2.00 points each
FRTD: 6.00 points each
Safety: 2.00 points each


Demarcus Ware was 10th best LB. Now I do see that Sacks seem to be way overvalued in that system, but like I said, I am not an IDP guy. Anyway, I was just curious being a Cowboys fan and not a huge IDP guy or anything.

About what round do you expect IDPs to start getting drafted in a standard 12-team league? I haven't tried an IDP league, it looks very interesting, but I am not sure when they should start getting drafted or how they compare to other fantasy players, e.g. are the top 10 LBs comparable to WR2s, etc.

I play IDP in Yahoo and it is difficult to gauge when they'll get drafted because Yahoo doesn't rank their IDP's worth a darn. I usually try to cover my RB, QB and WR slots for sure first before pulling the trigger on IDP. I've always found good value in the late rounds for LB's. Last year I got Patrick Willis in the 17th round of my 16 team keeper.

Guys I'm sorry. I've been meaning to get an update published but have been busy with work and the recent trade of Matt Murton.
