Fantasy Football Cheat Sheet: Top 50 IDP Rankings 2020 - Bobby Wagner

If your fantasy football league includes Individual Defensive Players (IDPs), the question you must answer is which position is the most valuable? Is it the stud defensive lineman that racks up sacks and makes big plays behind the line of scrimmage? Is it a linebacker that fills the stat sheet in a number of ways? Or is it a defensive back that does his best linebacker impression while also excelling in coverage?

Opinions will no doubt vary, but in looking at the top 50 IDPs for 2020, it appears that the do-everything linebackers get the nod followed by the elite pass rushers. But don't sleep on the multi-dimensional DBs either.

The pool for each position is fairly deep, considering in most cases IDP leagues feature one or two of each position (DL, LB, DB) in a starting lineup, perhaps three if you employ a flex. But just as is the case with QBs, RBs, WRs, TEs, D/STs, and even Ks, picking the right IDP (and when) could be the difference between you putting together a championship-caliber defense or watching another team in your league claim the title.
