2013 IDP Rest of Season Rankings

These Rest of Season IDP Rankings are designed to give you an approximate value of a player's worth for the remaining games of the season. Having an idea of a player's future value will allow you to judge potential trade offers and waiver wire decisions in a more discerning manner.

These rankings will be updated each Thursday to reflect injuries, playing time changes, role changes, scheme changes, etc.

IDP Ranking System Key
DL1/LB1/DB1 = The best of the best, every week starter regardless of matchup
DL2/LB2/DB2 = Starter in all but the more shallow of leagues
DL3/LB3/DB3 = Solid matchup-type play on a week to week basis
DL4/LB4/DB4 = Borderline starter in deeper leagues, may be worth a start occasionally during ideal matchup weeks
DL5/LB5/DB5 = Unrosterable in even the deepest of formats, leave on the waiver wire

*Players listed in RED are currently injured or have recently been placed on IR.
**Players listed in PURPLE are newly added players to the rankings or are players that have had an adjustment in their ranking from the previous week.

***The "Change" column notates if that specific player's ROS rankings went up or down from the previous week. If there is nothing in the column, the player's value remained the same as what was listed the previous week.

****These rankings are based upon a balanced IDP scoring system.

Hey Guru,

Who would rather have rest of season: Charles Tillman, Aaron Williams, Roman Harper, Morgan Burnett or Charles Woodson?

Scoring system:

1 pt - solo tackle
4 pts - sack
4 pts - int
8 pts - td
2 pts - ff
2 pts - f recovery
5 pts - safety
3 pts - block kick

jeramiehieb said...

Which is better DB1+ or DB1-?

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Unknown
I'd rather have Tillman in this scoring system.

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@jeramiehieb
Plus is better than minus. Basically just a way to show where a player sits within a tier.

Lee Aaron said...

Guru, Should I go with Chancellor or Ihenacho? I have to start 4 DB's , already have Barron, Reshad Jones & William Moore plugged in. Not sure if I should go with Kam or Duke. Please advise. Thank you.

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Lee Aaron
I'd stick with Chancellor.

William Long said...

So just a quick question. Charles Tillman went down. Just trying to find another to take his place. First of any suggestions would be extremely helpful. Two that I am looking at are Vontaze Burfict and Tim Jennings. Help???

William Long said...

Also looking at Daryl Smith

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@William Long
I'd go with Daryl Smith.

Chris Johnson said...

Honey Badger or Rashad Jones the rest of the way? Thanks.

Fred said...

Just a thanks for the site... My league has been running IDP for years, but we still have a few guys who do not know how to value players... I do a crap ton of research and draft prep to know when to draft players based on point production.. and I tend to lead the run on IDP's and watch the waiver for upgrades :)

Here is what my IDP's on my team currently look like:

Drafted
DL (3) - Mario Williams, Cameron Wake, Chandler Jones
LB (2)- Navorro Bowman, James Laurinaitis
DB (3)- Harrison Smith, Bernard Pollard, John Cyprien

Moves
DL - Week 4 picked up Clayborn if Wake can't play
LB - Week 3 picked up Bobby Wagner (dropped by someone looking for a player with better stats lol), Week 4 trying to get Keuchly on waivers dropping James Laurinaitis
DB - holding on to Cyprien, but Aaron Williams is available.. thoughts?



Fred said...

Oh and my full team is not a push over either (10 team league):
QB - Keapernick, Vick
RB - Martin, Moreno, williams, woodhead,
WR - Bryant, Colston, Edelman (ppr league), Hopkins
TE - Graham, Gronkowski (waiver claim lol)

Anthony Martin said...

Hey guru,

New to IDP, we start 3 positions with LB's seeming to be the most important. I have Laurinitis, D. Smith, J. Freeman, and J. Allen. 2 questions, would you drop Allen for Deandre Levy? Also, would you trade Laurinitis for Bobby Wagner or Perry Riley?

Anthony Martin said...

Can't see the far right rankings column on this page.

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Chris Johnson
Jones ROS.

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Fred
I'd stick with Cyprien.

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Anthony Martin
I wouldn't trade James L. for Wagner or Riley. I wouldn't drop Allen for Levy.

Fred said...

@Ryan Sitzmann

Good, my thoughts too, thanks!

Ron Biz said...

You think it's worth dropping A. Williams or J. Cyprien in a keeper league to pick up Woodson? I'm skeptical but you seem to be hot on Woodson for this season.

Juggernaut said...

Ryan, I have to cut either Curtis Lofton or Pat Angerer due to bye weeks - who would you cut? Thanks!

Ron Biz said...

@Ron Biz

I read that Williams might switch to corner. He has to be downgraded if he's not playing safety right?

munygon2 said...

Looks like Alonso is making the case for LB1, do you agree?

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@munygon2
Low-end LB1- for Alonso.

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Juggernaut
Probably cut Angerer as I'm not sure he stays in subpackages moving forward.

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Ron Biz
I still like Woodson over Williams for the time being. If Williams moves back tos safety, then probably go back to Williams.

Francisco said...

Both Landry and Burnnett are available on waivers this week on my league. Which one would you prefer to have the rest of the season? I will drop Cyprien for one of them, but would you also drop Woodson for the other one if i can snatch both? I also have Barron. thanks!

Nate said...

Brad Jones
Danny Trevathan
Nick Roach

If you have to pick 2 for the rest of the season which linebackers would you keep? Jones has the bonus of having his bye week out of the way, Nick Roach has been inconsistent and Trevathan has preformed well but it might be an anomaly.

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Francisco
I pick them both up.

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Nate
Jones and Roach

N said...

Hi Ryan,

Sheard has DE eligibility in my tackle heavy league. How would he stack up as a DL for ROS? DL2?

Thanks,
Nate

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@N
More in the DL2-/DL3+ range.

Abhishek Sahai said...

I'm not quite impressed by Chandler Jones' play yet... With Wilfork gone he was used inside at DT a lot... Is he worth keeping over Dunlap?

Abhishek Sahai said...

Also what's ur take on Buster Skrine, play him over J McCourty this week? How's Skrine's rest of the season outlook.. Thx :)

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Abhishek Sahai
I think he's played well. I still think Dunlap has the higher upside though. I like Skrine over Mccourty this week and ROS is hard to tell since Skrine may not continue to get enough snaps. If he does, I like him more ROS as well.

brady said...

with aldon smith out, justin smith concerns me... hes also questionable. its a 12 team league and we start 2 DL (2 tkl, 1 ast, 5 sack, 6 int, 2 ff, 4 dfr). do you think i should pick up and start desmond bryant tonight? cleveland plays the bills who are giving up the most points to DL

thanks,
brady

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@bradyYes pickup Bryant.

brady said...

@Ryan Sitzmann

thanks!

one more question. in my other league, thats setup the same way(except its 10 teams) trent cole is considered a DL not a LB. what 3 would you pick the ROS, trent cole, chandler jones, carlos dunlap or justin smith?

thanks again, this site is great help,
brady

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@brady
Jones, Dunlap, and Smith.

Adam Deb said...

I have Bowman and Kuechly and need to drop one. Who will have the bigger season/who should i drop?

Adam Deb said...

1 pt per tackle, .5 per assist, 3 per sack

Abhishek Sahai said...

Thx Ryan for Skrine over McCourty tip... Why do you think he may not continue to get enough snaps? I couldn't get any news that he's filling in for injured player ... Only thing I got was he won starting job in preseason..

Tijan White said...

Thanks Ryan for all the great data and advice. I'm in a idp league that scores:
1 pt per tackle, .5 per asst, 3 int, 3 per sack, 1 per pd, and 2 ff/fr.
I have an opportunity to pickup either Jerrell Freeman or Dannell Ellerbe. Which do you think is the more reliable player for the rest of the season.

Tijan White said...

Also I'm looking to pick up a solid DB for my bench and bye week replacements. I currently have Morgan Burnett and Duke Ihenacho. I was thinking of grabbing a Da'norris Searcy, Aaron Williams, or Yeramiah Bell. Glover Quinn and Ed Reed are also available. Thanks again.

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Adam Deb
Tough call. I give Kuechly the edge because I think he will have more tackle opportunity than Bowman.

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Abhishek Sahai
He's been very inconsistent in coverage. Last year he lost snaps due to it. He played well last night, so if that caliber of play continues it shouldn't be a problem. But it's something to watch.

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Tijan White
I like Freeman slightly better in leagues that give points for assists. I'd keep Burnett and Ihenacho but if you are looking just for a bench player, I'd go with Quin out of that group.

Tijan White said...

Charles Woodson is on the radar as well.

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Tijan White
Go with Woodson

KJT said...

What up, GURU! Please rank these LB's for the rest of the season. D Washington, L Kuechly, J Mayo, C Greenway. Thanks!

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@KJT
Kuechly, Greenway, Mayo, Washington

Ken Hathaway said...

Thoughts on JPP after another seemingly poor performance? I could use cap space created (dynasty league) if I cut him and roll with Charles Johnson and Cameron Jordan as my top 2 DL. JPP is under contract for this yr and next. ???

Tijan White said...

@Ryan SitzmannGreat call. Thanks again!

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Ken Hathaway
Johnson and Jordan are both top 12 options. So if you need to create cut room, feel free to cut JPP. I do expect him to bounce back and finish in the top 15 though.

Brent Deangelis said...

lattimore or hawk this week and until jones returns

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Brent DeangelisHawk for sure.

Gary Bigam said...

jo-lonn dunbar or kevin burnett for rest of season?

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Gary Bigam
Burnett

Msigns said...

if you had to drop 1.. who would it be: Erin Henderson, Mathieu, Ihenacho, Ogletree,

marflan said...

scoring is 2/tackle, 1/assist, 3/sack, int or ff. Have Duke I., Jerrell Freeman & Chad Greenway. Need to play any 2 D. Harrison Smith is available on waiver wire. Should I drop Freeman or Duke to pick up Smith, or keep what I've got? Play which 2 this week?

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Msigns
Probably Ogletree.

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@marflan
I'd drop Duke to pick up Smith.

marflan said...

@Ryan Sitzmann
Play which two: Smith, Freeman, Greenway

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@marflan
Please refer to rankings.

Leon Vining said...

Any thoughts on Morgan Burnett? He is not the DB1 I was waiting for? Is he still working his way back, or should I jump ship for a TJ ward or something? Thanks Ryan.

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Leon Vining
I still like Burnett especially with the injuries to the front seven. He's still getting up to speed. I like him better than Ward ROS, but Ward better this week.

Mark said...

For rest of the season, Wake or Allen?

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Mark
Wake

Jeffrey Jacobs said...

Hey IDP Guru,
My dilemma is which 2 LBS to keep for the remainder of the year? Choices are Von Miller, Daryl Washington or Kiko Alonso. Should I even consider keeping all three? I'm in a 20 team league so the roster spot is needed. I'm currently in 3rd place. Thanks for any insight that you can provide.

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Jeffrey Jacobs
I'd go Washington and Alonso, unless it's a big play slanted scoring system.

Jacob Tasoulas said...

Thoughts on Will Hill ROS? Has he supplanted Mundy?

Brian Sullivan said...

If I could have any LB rest of season who should it be?

Brian Sullivan said...

@Brian Sullivan

It is standard scoring for IDP

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Jacob Tasoulas
Him and Mundy likely fall into the DB3/DB4 tiers until we get clarity on how they will be used moving forward.

Issikia said...

Again, cannot see the right side of the ROS schedule.
Can you guys check the schedule when you post it so we can see the whole schedule?

Andrew Gaudioso said...

Hey Ryan I've been checking daqily to see your ROS ranks- our trade deadline was this week. I was looking for a high end DB and the only oneI could get my hands on is Tyvon Branch. Admittly I don't know a ton on him and his upside(mainly based my trade off of your ranks and DLF's. Whats your outlook for Branch and will he really produce like a DB1.
Will he start over any of these I'm currently rolling with Weddle, Honey Badger, Vaccario, A Bethea and Nate Aleen and EArl Wolff.(start 2)

2pt tackle
4 pt sack
5 pt int
1 pt asst
1 pt pass defended

@Andrew Gaudioso
Yes, I'd start him over Vaccaro and Wolff. And maybe Allen.

Matthew English said...

My 10 team standard league plays 1 FLEX IDP. I have been playing Paul Posluszny but with his concussion I might need to replace him. Fortunately people in my league are stupid and Luke Keuchly and Lavonte David are still available. Which do I pick up?

Adam Deb said...

Whats the vibe on Worrilow w/ Spoon coming back this week? Is he a better rest of season bet than Bowman? I can see me making the move and him not topping 5 points the rest of the way...Dont go chasing points as they say.

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Adam Deb
Stick with Bowman.

David Thornton said...

I've got Lavonte David and Jerrell Freeman as my LB1/LB2 and recently picked up Briggs for when he comes back. Somebody just dropped Erin Henderson as he was originally marked as OUT due to illness, but now he's playing this weekend. No guarantee I get Henderson on waivers, as I would probably drop Freeman for him, but Freeman plays tonight and waivers don't clear until Saturday.

Should I drop Briggs and get Henderson?

Robert Cyparski said...

Greetings Ryan.

John Abraham is eligible at DL in my league. I also happen to have Cameron Wake and Chandler Jones. I need to fill two spots. Chandler Jones seems to be a definite must start with the way Tannehill has been sacked all season long. Do you see Cameron Wake rising to the occasion against Tom Brady or do you see John Abraham as a better choice this week against Ryan Fitzpatrick?

Thank you!

Ron Biz said...

Hey Ryan who do you think is the better keeper in a league that rewards for sacks, strips, etc....Daryl Washington, Bobby Wagner or Von Miller?

Ron Biz said...

Actually my real question would, be pick two keepers for next season in a league that rewards for sacks and strips...Kiko Alonso, Von Miller or Bobby Wagner?

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Ron Biz
Miller and Wagner if it's heavily slanted towards rewarding for sacks. Otherwise, Alonso and Wagner.

Ryan Barsotti said...

Which two should I start this week: Kiko Alonso, Nick Roach, Alec Ogletree?

Tak-1
TFL-1.5
Ast-.5
Sak-3
FF-4
INT-5

Clyde C. said...

Where have the updates been Ryan? I miss the analysis.

Quick question:
Championship Weekend, 1pt per tackle, .5 per assist.

Who would you roll with at DB...my options are:
Michael Griffin
Marcus Gilchrist
Kareem Jackson
DJ Swearinger
Matt Elam
Mike Mitchell

THANKS
