8-team Draft with IDP. Need help/tips

Postby gsnts725 » Tue Aug 28, 2012 1:38 pm

Yeah i just got into this league where you have to draft individual defensive players and I've never been in one like this before. Has anyone ever been in a league like this? If so, do you have any tips? When should I start drafting the defensive players? Who should I be targetting besides the obvious best players aka Patrick Willis, Darrelle Revis, etc.

In this draft I need to draft 2 LB's 2 DL and 2 CB's. Here are the settings for the IDP:

Tackle:
1 point
Assisted Tackles:
0.5 points
Sack:
2 points
Defense Interception:
2 points
Forced Fumble:
2 points
Fumbles Recovery:
2 points
Touchdown (Interception return):
6 points
Touchdown (Fumble return):
6 points
Touchdown (Blocked kick):
6 points
Blocked Kick (punt, FG, PAT):
2 points
Safety:
2 points
Pass Defended:
1 point
Interception Return Yards:
1 point per 10 yards
Fumble Return Yards:
1 point per 10 yards
Tackles for Loss Bonus:
0.5 points

There's no hard-and-fast rule, it's tempting to lock up an IDP stud linebacker to anchor your defensive lineup, and if a value comes by that's too good to pass up by all means don't. But many players are available rounds after a bigger name like Jared Allen or JPP and can offer fantasy owners similar IDP production while affording them the chance to stockpile an upside receiver, sleeper quarterback, or handcuff running back to boot. So dont be afraid to wait til later rounds and dont get stuck in an early IDP run! Linebackers usually rule IDP leagues with sack monster DE's coming in a close second. DTs are scarce and very undependable so even though they dont score the most they are usually valued pretty highly. Dont draft DBs till really late. There are exceptions to this rule who have shown themselves capable of steady IDP production over several seasons, but more often than not last year's treasure can quickly become this year's trash at the DB position. Sorry this is a block of text but hope these basic tips help you.

I've been in an IDP league for the past 7 years. Our settings are a little more basic as we just need to start three defensive players and thats it, no restrictions. I tend to focus on Linebackers as I like the tackles. If you get some players that can get you some consistent tackles, you should be golden. players that can get you sacks are like the home run hitters, they should get you big points but won't be as consistent.
Here is my rankings I used for my draft. Doesnt include any CB or S though. Hope it helps.

172. Jason Pierre-Paul
173. Jared Allen
174. Justin Tuck
175. Trent Cole
176. Jabaal Sheard
177. Julius Peppers
178. Mario Williams
179. Brandon Williams
180. Patrick Willis
181. James Laurinaitis
182. Derrick Johnson
183. Navorro Bowman
184. D'Qwell Jackson
185. Daryl Washington
186. Sean Weatherspoon
187. Curtis Lofton
188. Stephen Tulloch
189. Jerod Mayo
190. Ray Lewis
191. Sean Lee
192. DeMarcus Ware
193. Luke Kuechly
194. Elvis Dumervil
195. Aldon Smith
196. Chris Long
197. J.J. Watt
198. Charles Tillman
199. Haloti Ngata
200. James Anderson
201. Karlos Dansby
202. Chad Greenway
