Here's how my IDP's did last year, and what the scoring is for IDP.

1 point for every Solo Tackle
2 points for every Interception
2 points for every Sack
2 points for every Fumble Forced
1 point for every Fumble Recovered
4 points for every Safety
6 points for every Defensive TD
4 extra points for every Defensive TD of 80 or more yards
2 extra points for every Defensive TD between 40 and 79 yards (inclusive) ALL


Charles Woodson DB GB Total: 102 (#4 overall at DB)
Troy Polamalu DB PIT Total: 76 (#41 overall at DB)
Justin Tuck DL NYG Total: 85 (#1 overall at DL)
Charles Johnson DL CAR Total: 71 (#11 overall at DL)
Clay Matthews LB GB Total: 93 (#22 overall at LB)


****

Greene scored me 96 points last year total, even with those numbers it would probably still make sense to keep Greene?

Greene scored more points total, but you have to compare Greene to whatever RB2 you will have instead and compare, say, Tuck, to whatever DL1 you will have instead.

If gap between Tuck and your next likely DL is bigger than Greene and likely range of RB2, then it makes sense to keep Tuck.

Same for any other IDP.


If difference between Greene and another RB2 that you likely end up with is greater than the DL1, in this example, then it makes sense to keep Greene.

The $64,000 question is: if both players are available in the draft pool, who gets selected first? I don't know your league, but I would imagine the answer is Greene 98% of the time. There's your keeper.

I ended up trading Jennings straight up for Forte...and to be honest, I think I like this better than giving up White. Jennings dissapeared at times last year, and White is a top 3 WR, now my keepers look like this.

Ryan, Forte, Megatron, White and Davis....solid corps to go along with a #4 first round pick. Depending on who is there, going RB with that pick will, I think, start me off as a very solid contender.

I agree with the five players you suggested as well as trying to trade one of your stud receivers. If they won't bite on Jennings or White, try and trade Johnson. That still leaves you with two top receivers and possibly a better back in return. If no trade happens, you still get 4th pick. Whoever you drop could still be there. Good luck on your season.
