2017 Rest of Season IDP Rankings: Weeks 2-17

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

@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.

DL2+ range

Ryan Sitzmann said...

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.

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

Unknown said...

Byard or kam chancellor

Ryan Sitzmann said...

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

Ryan Sitzmann said...

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.

Byard or tyvon branch ?

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.
