My opinion might vary from the others.

I played team D for a while and it was okay but I actually got tired of "all or die" with them. When I was invited to play IDP and found that I could pick defensive players individually, I was hooked. I'm one of the stats guys. I love the X's and O's of the game and it is a whole other strategic challenge to play D guys and play matchups too. I won another championship in this league and the IDP guys played a big part, especially the LBs and the DEs.

Once you play IDP, the Standard will be a thing of the past. Guaranteed!

I simply enjoy the variation. Having more to do and keep track of is more fun for me, for some reason. Having done IDP's for several years now, to me, not having IDP's would be like playing fantasy baseball, but without pitchers. It's just not complete.

I like it, don't love it. I find Team Defense a little plebeian, but IDP adds only a little, not too much, IMO.

[*]Best thing about it, is it attracts more serious, knowledgeable players
[*]I don't like that my best IDP players are often on bad teams. This is especially true of linebackers and safeties, who are either tackling every five seconds because their defense is always playing or making plays because the CB coverage is broken
[*]There's not a ton of variation between players. I play in a small league, and basically, everyone ranks the IDPs by projected points and takes best available. That's all there is to it. Typically, there's one great guy (think Patrick Willis) but then the guys right behind him are also awesome and over the course of the year the differential will be like 5 points, no joke
[*]The scoring gets a little silly...sacks and interceptions have huge point values, often, because otherwise DL and DB would be worthless relative to LB

On a positive note, it does allow more stats to follow!
10 rushing yards - 1 pt
10 receiving yards - 1 pt
20 passing yards - 1 pt
All TDs - 6 pts (QBs favored)

I like strategy and stats which brought me to FF in the first place.

IDP means more of both of those. It is a lot more work though.

If fantasy baseball is like chess and fantasy football is like checkers,,,IDP elevates fantasy football to chinese checkers. you get the point.
