2017 Rest of Season IDP Rankings: Weeks 11-17

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.

What do you think of Zach Cunnigham for the rest of the season now that Cushing has been suspended? Is he worth a pick up over any of the other LBs you mentioned in your waiver wire piece?

Where would Vic Beasley Jr. and J. Clowney be ranked as DL? In certain formats they are considered DL/EDGE.

Phil said...

For return yards/TD leagues, do you move Jabrill Peppers up much higher? Debating him vs Byard right now.

Eric Hamilton said...

Guru, I know Darron Lee is your guy and I picked him up and started him last week and he delivered in Fantasy. In reality, he played terrible in coverage and was benched at the end of the game. Would you drop him for Ramon Huber or Danny Travathen (since Freeman is out), Vince Williams or Vincent Rey? I have Burfict coming back in a couple of weeks so this is a two week rental.
My other lbs: Davis (Det), Brown (LAC), Davis (Car).
2pt solo; 1pt assist; 5pt sacks; 6pt interception
Thanks,

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Christopher McCartney
Probably not at this point as Dylan Cole is likely to take away snaps from him at least early on. I suspect Cunningham will eventually win an every down role but it may take a few weeks.

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Relik0414
DL2+ range

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Phil
Yes, you have to. I think Peppers is going to be big play reliant which I don't like. Byard arguably is too but way less tackle competition up front. So I would go Byard unless you get a lot of points for returns.

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Eric Hamilton
Yep, talked about all that in my waiver wire article. Basically a case of "right church, wrong pew." Davis is the guy to own there. I still think he's probably worth owning over the other guys mentioned though.

Unknown said...

Would you drop either CJ Mosley or Sean Lee for the potential upside of Goodson?

Unknown said...

Byard or kam chancellor


Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Unknown
I probably would take the safe/steady points of Mosley/Lee.

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Unknown
Byard. I think Chancellor is a bit overrated from a fantasy perspective. Seattle stat crew keeps his value suppressed along with massive tackle competition.

Sean said...

What are your thoughts on Tre'Davious White?

Sean said...

Your rankings are high on Eric Weddle, and I can't understand why. Can you give some insight into Weddle's current ranking?

I'm struggling between Poyer, Weddle or T. White, for who to claim.

Antonio De Hoyos said...

Byard or tyvon branch ?

Jonas said...

I have a rest-of-the-season question. League scoring is 3 pts for sacks or interceptions, 2 pts for forced fumbles, safeties, or fumble recoveries, 1 pt for tackle or pass defended, and 6 for defensive TD. We play 2 LB, 2 DB, and 2 flex.

My current roster is CJ Mosley, Telvin Smith, Ryan Shazier, Jamie Collins, Wesley Woodyard, Morgan Burnett, and Tony Jefferson. I picked up Woodyard because of Collins injury, to sub in this week. I can afford one bench position for defense.

Vontaze Burfict and NaVorro Bowman are both on the wire (as are Barry Church and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix). The plan had been to pick up Burfict this week to be ahead of others, but I had to cover for Collins.

Last bit - Yahoo's season projections suggest that Woodyard is the best of the group. Is that suspect evaluation on their part, or a result of the scoring system? What would you do?

Jason jewgieniew said...

would u start klien or D.Davis. this week..?

Unknown said...

Do you think Anzalone or Campbell will eventually be every down guys? AJ Klein isn't very good. And with Campbell his coverage skills look elite to me. Thanks!

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Unknown
Anzalone is fairly close to every down already, so I think he gets there. Campbell is trickier as Riley is young and has room to grow behind him. I just don't see Campbell developing into a stud in Atlanta. Probably going to be a much better on the field player than fantasy producer.

Joseph Hill said...

I see Keanu Neal consistently ranked high. I had him last year and he was a beast, but he has underwhelmed so far this year. Why the high rankings?

Michael Thomas said...

JJ Watt has come available in my league you think he will come around? Thanks

FOOTBALL UNKNOWN said...

12 team IDP league. Tackle heavy scoring. Can't decide this week between Telvin Smith, Myles Jack or Demario Davis at LB. Need to pick ONE. Davis has a better match up scoring wise but seems slow at times. Smith/Jack are flying but have poor LB match up. Thanks!

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Joseph Hill
Just hoping that the breakout game is coming. If he doesn't produce this week, he's going to have to drop down a ways in the rankings.

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Michael Thomas
Yes, I think he starts producing. Probably not at levels we are accustomed to, but starting material in every league still for me.

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@FOOTBALL UNKNOWN
Tough call: http://www.idpguru.com/2017/09/2017-weekly-idp-rankings.html

Unknown said...

@Michael Thomas

I have the same question! He is still ranked #1 and I know playing well per PFF and whatever, but will it ever translate to fantasy?

Keith Collins said...

Is this a good time to grab Rodney Mcleod? Do you see a return to 2016 form?

Bob K said...

I have Wagner, Mosely, and J. Brown. Who should I select has a bye-week filler for the rest of the season -- J. Davis, R. Foster, or Goodson?

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Keith Collins
No

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Bob K
Foster

Tommy Peters said...

Where’s Mack? DL #1?

Idp man said...

Should I continue to put out k. beckwith hes been playing at such a high level or has his ship sailed? I tried to offer him up in a package trade per your advice but no go... I need to start two from B.J gooden, Danny T, K. alonso , Ruben Foster? Thanks quality idp has been very important your advice has help immensely

Unknown said...

Where is Melvin Ingram? Must have been an oversight leaving hom off your DL rankings.

Unknown said...

Where does NaVorro Bowman fit in your rankings? Need to wait until he lands with a team?

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Unknown
Yeah, waiting until he finds a home to re-rank him.

Eric Hamilton said...

Guru, Jatavis Brown was my sleeper coming into the season and starting with a bang. His tackle production has decreased each week with only 3 this week. Is it time to drop him? Do you know of anything about his health?

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Eric Hamilton
He's a hold for me but may not get back to full snaps until afer their bye week.

David Plant said...

ROS Linebacker ratings for weeks 8-17 not showing

back-o-d-pack said...

Where do you see Reid ranked rest of the season with today's news that he will be playing LB?

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@back-o-d-pack
Hard to say as it depends on how many snaps he gets there. He's been playing linebacker for the last couple weeks and we haven't seen a huge increase in tackle production. So I'm bumping him up slightly but not as much as you would think until he proves himself.

Unknown said...

Keeper ques. In my league we have 4 (DB). I have Branch(Ari), Sorenson(KC), Amos(Chi),Maye(NYJ). I also have Cyprien(Tenn) on IR. With a Q behind Cyprien's name,(even though it is on a bye week) I either have to drop him or activate him and drop someone else. Who should I drop? If I activate him and keep Branch I have to start 3 (DL)

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Unknown
I would drop Mayer of that group.

Jason Batteiger said...

4 IDP flexes dynasty. need to drop one of these now and a 2nd later. have all 6 of amos/r.jones/burfict/t.smith/collins/ogletree. clearly collins is the first, who's the 2nd?

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Jason Batteiger
Probably Amos for me given that he's a DB. Ogletree has struggled but I think he still winds up with more points than Amos.

Unknown said...

Have to drop either Everson or Harrison as cant keep both over the bye due to bench size.

Who holds more value ROS to keep?

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Unknown
Are you referring to Everson Griffen and Harrison Smith or Damon Harrison?

BobbySudo said...

@Ryan Sitzmann

Yup Everson Griffen and Harrison Smith.

Jerome Campbell said...

Help!!!
Shoupd ai drop either Kevin Byrd or eric Reid for deangelo hall or Jonathan cyprien and should I drop Danny trevathan for Ramon Humber or Denzel Perryman????

uazwildcats said...

where would you rank DJ Reader? I'm thinking he was accidentally left off

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@uazwildcats
DL70-80 range

Jason Patton said...

If Trevathan and Z. Brown are out, would you pick up Compton and C. Jones?

Jason Batteiger said...

lost lee and branch in a 20 teamer, start 2 LB, 1 flex, 2 CB, 1 S, 1 DE, 1 DT. guessing these rankings might not include lee's injury
roster
LB david/ogletree/lee (about to have to drop)
CB crawley/mccourty
S branch (dropping)
DT buckner
DE dunlap
who's best LB add assume lee and trevathan are out for this week: hitchens/humber/perryman/c.jones (CHI)/casillas/foster (but of course he's about to be on bye, he'd i'll assume be the add for weeks 12 and onward)

Jason Batteiger said...

@Jason Batteiger

worst part is i had to drop this week either of amos, or one of the LB for this week. went with amos as since we start 2 LB's thought it better to have LB depth over S depth. t.wilson would be the S add from these rankings.

Jason Batteiger said...

@Jason Pattoncompton out whole year, add a new 2nd option.

James Maloney said...

Picked up Adoree' Jackson this week. Looking like a great pick especially for leagues that reward punt/kick returns!

Aaron Wilcox said...

Vonn Bell, Tony Jefferson, TJ mcdonald, or Eric Reed ROS?? Extra points scoring for stuffs and passes defensed.

Ryan Sitzmann said...

@Aaron Wilcox
McDonald
