ok, then it is very very close to standard defensive scoring... which i completely dislike.
to answer your question, nah... it shouldn't really affect your rankings much or where you draft your defense. You will find that the top 15 defenses will all easily be in the top 50 scorers in your league. Ahead of many QBs RBs and WRs. The thought process on whoever deemed this scoring as standard was to make offense and defense more even... way too many sites followed suit. Your defensive yards allowed is tweaked down from standard... but it's still dumb.
The main thing to remember is that you can matchup play defenses quite easily and sometimes, oftentimes even, top defenses don't always perform (see Bears of last year... they were going as high as 5th, 6th, 7th rounds) ....
Just grab a solid D near the end of the draft and play the waivers for matchups if you need to.
