2017 IDP Points Allowed By Position (Through Week 17)

Knowing which teams give up the most fantasy points to certain defensive positions is vital to the long-term success of any IDP owner. Having this type of information will allow you to make those tough weekly lineup decisions as well as spot key weekly waiver wire pickups throughout the season.

This article will be updated each week to reflect the average total points allowed by each NFL team to Defensive Ends, Defensive Tackles, Linebackers, Cornerbacks, and Safeties up until that particular point in the season. To start the 2016 season, these stats will be based upon 2016 points allowed. Starting at the beginning of Week 2, we will begin revising this document with up-to-date 2017 statistics.

***It's important to note that I usually like to wait at least three to four weeks before I start "trusting" this data as too much variance in the numbers can occur in the initial regular season weeks.

NOTE: Due to the Dolphins/Buccaneers game getting moved to Week 11, there will only be 30 teams in the first week's data set.

The chart below was generated using the following IDP scoring system:

Solo Tackle = 1.5 pts
Assist = 0.75 pts
Sack = 4 pts
FF = 4 pts
FR = 3 pts
INT = 6 pts
PD = 1.5 pts
Defensive TD = 6 pts

NOTE: The data is being displayed on the site using an embedded Google Document. Some readers may have issues viewing the tables depending on a myriad of different of factors (e.g. browser, device, method of viewing). This said, I've made the data available in downloadable spreadsheet and PDF form as well. See the download links below.

The rankings seem to be down. Love what you're doing keep up the good work!


12 team IDP league. 3 pt tackle/3pt sack/FF/FR Have to start two DE in this league. I have been rolling with Demarcus Lawrence and Anthony Zettel but Zettle has fallen into a mediocre slump. His teammate Zeke Ansah is available on my waiver wire. Even though Zettel is playing more snaps would you go with the hot hand Ansah over him against CHI this week? Thanks!

I like Ansah more this week.

***NOTE: Please use a different display name than "Anonymous" when asking advice questions. It gets difficult to discern who I am answering when multiple people post under the same name.

Also, when asking for weekly matchup advice please mention the weekly opponent for each player you are listing. This helps me answer questions more quickly.
In addition, always list your scoring system as my advice will differ depending on the type of system being used.

Lastly, please don't duplicate the same exact post on other pages. We get notified of all comments that are posted and we will make sure to answer questions as quickly as we can. Posting the same question multiple times on different pages just slows the whole process down for everyone.
