Well assuming you only start 3 and they can of any position, I tend to like your guys just fine. Barring injury or excessive under-production, I would probably just go ahead and keep them. I would however, be keeping my eyes on Jackson, Davis, Conner and Hawthorne.

In tackle leagues where things are NOT weighted towards big plays, consistent tackle machines like the three you've got are perfect. You really don't need anything other than linebackers, which is what you have. Safety's are next best. I wouldn't even bother with linemen or CB's.....

Suggs is worth picking up over Lofton.
Your league rewards players like Suggs in a big way re Sacks, Forced Fumbles...he won't give you the tackles but he'll make up for it those few tackles usually being sacks

Mayo blew up last season so it's hard to tell you to drop him.
Jackson will give you 10+ tackles every week and is one of the most underrated/overlooked LBs in the league. That's what you get for being a Brown.

Drop Lofton and pickup some homework on Jackson though. He's a great Fantasy LB.

Good luck

Thomas Davis just had his value increase threefold with the loss of Jon Beason. He was a beast when Beason was out last year. I expected his value to drop when Beason returned this year, but now he's out again so I'd actually put him at the top of your list. Plus he plays on a crappy team. In IDP that's always a plus. Talented defensive players on crappy teams get lots of tackles.

I have the same scoring in my IDP league as well and to me the most important stats is tackles. Since every tackle is worth a point those are the guys you want because if they are getting lots of tackles it means they are constantly around the guy with the ball. You cant predict sacks, ints, or tds on defense they just happen. But if you have a guy that is always in the play the chances of him getting more then a tackle goes up. So what I do is goto the FA list sort by tackles and pick thte guy that is most consistent in that stat. If after awhile he starts falling off then drop him and do it again. Sorry I didnt give you any names but this is what I do and it always seems to work for me.

i don't think you can really pass up D'Qwell.. If possible i'd keep Lofton and pick up D'Qwell but if you only have the one spot i'd still go with the higher of the two which is D'Qwell.
