This is kind of obvious, Ray Lewis. He's the Priest of IDP's, while Strahan is only the Moss. In general, LB's are much better and consistent than DL's.

It completely depends on your scoring system. Im not sure if you can call it the "standard", but the most common IDP scoring system Ive seen has tackles = 1 and sacks = 3. If thats the case, Rayray is by far the better fantasy player, and it isnt remotely close. A good rule of thumb to go by when looking at IDP is tackles rule.

That's the only scenario I can see that would make Lewis anything but the #1 IDP taken. Not a bad idea, actually, it evens up the LBs and DL a bit.

what kind of scoring system are you using for this list? I still dont see how Strahan is in the top 20, let alone the top 10 in a "standard" scoring IDP league. I dont mean to sound over the top or anything, but I simply wouldnt have him on my team - there are too many tacklers to consider a sack specialist like Strahan.
