2016 Rest of Season IDP Rankings: Weeks 13-17

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.

*****These rankings are based upon the balanced IDP scoring system listed below:

Scoring System:
Solo Tackle = 1 point
Assist = 0.5 point
Sack = 3 points
Interception = 4 points
Forced Fumble = 2 points
Fumble Recovery = 2 points
Pass Deflection = 1 point
Defensive TD = 6 points

ECR stands for Expert Consensus Ranking and is the aggregated average ranking across all experts who submit their rankings to FantasyPros.com.

Clicking on a specific player will allow you to view the specific rankings of all other IDP experts and how those compare to my own. Additionally, you have the ability to view recent news and notes on that specific player.

once Ninkovich comes back, do you think he's better to have than Jurrel Casey? Ninkovich is a free agent in my league atm

Alan Dalhed said...

John Simon has put up decent numbers, aided by sacks. We are a tackle heavy league. Worth rostering?

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Alan Dalhed
LB4 in tackle heavy as he's too sack reliant. No one on that defense stands out from a tackle perspective maybe besides Watt.

ROS, who would you drop (if anyone) to add Jabaal Sheard -- Calais Campbell or Olivier Vernon?

Gary C said...

Looks like Karl Joseph is getting the start today, that should bump him up a little?

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Jny555
I'd drop Vernon most likely for Sheard.

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Gary C
Yes, he will make a significant move up when I do the next refresh on these rankings.

tBone said...

Khalil Mack has been kind of disappointing...should I keep him or try and go after JJ?

Andrew Barbour said...

Trent Murphy is listed as LB/DL duel eligibility in Yahoo, and seems to be playing a fair amount of OLB snaps as he is outplaying Preston Smith. What are you thoughts on his ranking as a DLineman this year?

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Andrew Barbour
DL2- for me

Unknown said...

Jordan hicks, avery Williamson or will Compton for the rest of the year

Unknown said...

I can play Sean Witherspoon, Mark Barron, Craig Robertson or Sio Moore this weekend for my last IDP slot. Who should I choose? I am torn but I am thinking Witherspoon since CAR gives up a lot of points to LBs. Help!!!

steve bailey said...

perryman or jatavis brown in keeper? thanks

Unknown said...

Where would you have clowney ranked as a dl

Rick Muscarella said...

Where would you have clowney ranked as a dl

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@steve bailey
Call me stubborn, but I'm sticking with Perryman.

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Rick Muscarella
Top 20ish

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Unknown
Compton

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Unknown
I'd go Weatherspoon.

steve bailey said...

k thanks Ill go with him

steve bailey said...

k thanks Ill go with him

Unknown said...

In latest 'Rest of Season' rankings Willhoite isn't ranked? Is this intentional or was he just missed?

Joseph Donnelly said...

Hey I was wondering if I should stick with C.J. Mosley or pick up Telvin Smith or Kwon Alexander. Also, keep Suh or pick up D Lawrence? Any opinions

steve bailey said...

m williams or.d lawrence? also is levy droppable? have hin in keeper sitting for over a year

steve bailey said...

how are those two free agents...

steve bailey said...

how are those two free agents...

Ryan Bartman said...

Ryan,

Would you think that Darron Lee will earn himself every down snaps for the rest of the season? The same question for Devondre Campbell as well. Thank you!

Joseph Donnelly said...

Shallow league with 6 teams

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Unknown
Just missed. He's now been added. Thanks.

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Joseph Donnelly
I'd pick up Telvin. As steady as they come.
Keep Suh.

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@steve bailey
Lawrence. I'd hold on to Levy still in a keeper league, but I think he's going to be out a while.

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Ryan Bartman
Lee was back to splitting time with Henderson last week. I think he gets every down role this season but it's likely not for a handful more games when the Jets are likely out of contention. Campbell should be near every down upon his return with Weatherspoon done for the year.

TMTMTL said...

It appears Patriots going to rotation at DE now that Ninkovich has returned. Does that effect your rankings for Sheard as a productive DE?

yannick ngakoue doesn't crack top 80 DL?

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@6c33ad78-7d2b-11e5-b267-d75284323fce
Unfortunautely, he's not listed in my platform for some reason. He should be in the top 25-30 DLs. And higher for big play scoring.

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@TMTMTL
Don't think it hurts Sheard's production. Moreso Chris Long.

steve bailey said...

thanks

Clyde C. said...

Perry Riley didnt make the top 100 LBs rest of season? I think he puts up 7+ tackles per game for Raiders going forward. Thoughts?

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Clyde C.
He only started last week because Malcolm Smith was out. Smith could be back as earliest as this week.

Unknown said...

Why so down on Jordan Hicks? I realize he hasn't done anything yet but the only real favorable matchup he's had was vs. PIT which was a blowout and he got to rest in the second half. Seems like the tackle opportunity should be coming. Thoughts? - JT

Tyler Thomas said...

I have to drop 1 of the 4 LB's of Burfict,freeman,K. alonso,Posluszny whats your thoughts?

lucecooler said...

Curious about Vince Williams (LB w/ Pitt). I think he's only started the last two games for them, but he's been huge both of those weeks. I noticed he didn't make the LB list at all, maybe due to the date of compilation. Is he a guy to target at all? Thx!

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Unknown
He's missed 20%+ of the snaps in each of his last three games. I probably was being too down on him so I put him back in my rankings but he's still not anything more than a LB4 until he proves otherwise/his playing time increases more.

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Tyler Thomas
Tough call. Would have to be Alonso for me.

Tyler Thomas said...

Amanda Poulin said...

Where would you rank Deone Bucannon as a DB for ROS? He hasn't done much for me and tempted to cut bait

2kemon said...

...where's the love for Brian Orakpo?

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@2kemon
These rankings are based on balanced scoring and his 14 solo tackles through six games just don't cut it in that scoring system. That said, I did move him up about 20 spots as I was undervaluing him (sometimes you miss guys when valuing nearly 300 IDPs).

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Amanda Poulin
As a DB3+. That position is so hard to find consistency at and although Bucannon has definitely been a disappointment, he still has upside.

Amanda Poulin said...

Would you drop Bucannon for either Keanu Neal or Cyprien?

Unknown said...

I can only have 3. Telvin smith, Bobby Wagner, Lavante David, or votez burfict. Which one should I drop? Thinking about rest of season.

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Amanda Poulin
Yes. I would drop him for either but prioritize Neal.

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Unknown
I'd probably drop Wagner. The assist-heavy home stat crew kills his value.

Thekid said...

Entering the bye week chaos. Do you like Everson griffen over Bosa?

steve bailey said...

Sheard or jordan. Have wilk and graham. Need a 3rd dl. Ros. Hearing sheard is rotating. Thanks

Chris Moroney said...

Seriously love your site. Our scoring is: Asst = 0.5pt...Tackle / Tackle for Loss = 1pt each...Sack / FF / FR = 2pts each...Int = 3pt

Barron and Bucannon are S/LB position eligible and we start: 1DB + 1S + 1LB + 1D.

I also have Eric Hendricks, Deion Jones, Jatavis Brown & Morgan Burnett.....Jamie Collins was just dropped so I can try for him as well. Which 4 IDPs should I roll with ROS?

BTW I check your ROS IDP rankings but Barron/Bucannon are always ranked as just LBs. Thanks!

James Williams said...

For rest of year, would you keep Calais Campbell or Joey Bosa?

Steven Reynolds said...

Does Frank Clark typically play DE? Or does he rush the passer from the LB position? I'm wondering if there's any chance he will gain DE eligibility like K Mack did last year (dynasty league). Any insight would be great!

Martin M. said...

should i stay put or pick up vontaze burfict for ROS?

Scoring: Tackle=1pt. Asst=1pt. Pass Defensed=1pt. Sack/FF/FR/INT=2pt.

Only 3 Defensive Players i have Posluszny,Trevathan,Jatavis Brown

Martin M. said...

or C.J. Mosley after Bye?

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@James Williams
I think I'd go with Bosa's upside.

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Martin M.
I'd drop Trevathan for Burfict.

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Steven Reynolds
He plays DE and is classified as such on the Rotoworld depth charts.

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@steve bailey
Jordan

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Thekid
I'd ride out Bosa while he's hot.

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Chris Moroney
Barron, Jones, Brown, and Collins

Shah said...

These ranking will let the people know about the future of a player.There are many debates and rumors behnd of making this IDP ranking.The www.my-myitkyina.com/mh_html/college.htm is useful for undertanding some good things for more clearification.There are many ways to improve the quality of the IDP ranking.

frshmkr said...

What is happening in New England?? Why is Jabaal Sheard pretty much not playing??

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@frshmkr
Doesn't take much to piss off Bill. Plus Flowers was playing really well in a limited fashion.

patsfan said...

Hey Ryan, with your IDP help I'm guaranteed to make the playoffs. Thanks! Which 2 dls are better for weeks 14-16? L.Williams, T.Flowers, B.Graham? Points are:
1.5solo, 1ast, 3tfl, 5sck, 1.5pd, 3ff, 3fr, 5int, 6td.

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@patsfan
Can you list out the matchups please?

Darth Raider said...

Why do you still have Luke #1? He may be done for the year. I would think Davis should definitely move up with Kuechly out.

patsfan said...

B.Graham, redskins, ravens, giants.

T.Flowers,ravens, broncos, jets

L.Williams,49ers, dolphins, patriots.

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Darth Raider
I haven't seen anything definitive on how long he will be out so makes determining his long-term value really hard. I'm taking it week by week until we know more. Yes, Davis definitely gets a bump while Kuechly is out.

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@patsfan
I'd go with Leonard Williams given the matchups.

Keith Collins said...

I don't mean any harm, but as hot as Byron Jones has been, how is he not ranked? I'm assuming this was an accident.

Dylan said...

What about Cory James? I don't see him on the list.

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Keith Collins
He was just an accidental omission on my part. He's now been added as a DB3 (although I think his value definitely goes down with Church's return). Thanks for the heads up!

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Dylan
He's at #85. Only started last week because Riley was out injured and still only managed a couple tackles. May be worth a shot in the dark in deeper leagues if he starts again, but definitely not a super dependable option.
