Intriguing players in the Week 3 IDP fantasy rankings

Let’s examine three intriguing players in this week’s IDP rankings as we look ahead to Week 3.

George Karlaftis, DL | KC

When you look at all the elements of George Karlaftis’ game, there should be every chance for success. Karlaftis is playing on more than 75% of the defensive snaps and has four hurries and two QB knockdowns through the first two weeks. However, the actual fantasy output has been limited. He has just two solo tackles and two passes defensed.

If you’re in a dynasty league, Karlaftis is a player to try and buy, hoping that the other manager just looks at his output. The Chiefs clearly trust him, and hopefully, the big numbers are not far away.

Devin Lloyd, LB | JAX

Sticking with the rookies, and Devin Lloyd is off to a fantastic start. Playing on more than 95% of the defensive snaps, he has been everything that was advertised. Lloyd has 11 solo tackles, with six assists, three passes defensed, and an interception. In coverage, he has been electric, allowing just 18 yards on nine targets. With the way he is playing, Lloyd should be a staple of this defense most weeks.

Marcus Williams, DB | BAL

From the rookies to the big-money free agents, Marcus Williams may actually be outperforming his new contract through the first two weeks. Across the first two games, Williams has three interceptions and 22 total tackles (17 solo and five assists).

Right now, he is on pace for 25 interceptions and 187 tackles. While both those numbers are inflated after just two games, the position the Ravens are putting Williams in is setting him up for success. He has a real chance to be one of the top tackling defensive backs in the NFL in 2022. He’s gone from fringe IDP option to a must-start player in just two games.

What is IDP123 scoring?

There are so many different scoring systems for IDP, with new ones popping up regularly. There have been calls for a unified, accepted scoring system for the format to be put together. However, many people feel the delight of IDP is the way it evolves and changes from league to league.

Regardless, that doesn’t help fantasy managers looking for help with customized scoring systems. Therefore, it is important when publishing rankings to ensure the scoring system used is stated and explained. In this instance, we have used IDP123, which we will break down below.

The scoring elements included in the IDP123 system are assisted tackles, solo tackles, passes defensed, QB hits, tackles for loss, sacks, forced fumbles, fumble recoveries, interceptions, defensive touchdowns, safeties, and blocked kicks.

Now for the scoring system itself, which is split into four levels, one, two, three, and six points. Three and six-point actions tend to fall under the category of impact plays, while the one and two-point plays are the bread and butter of defensive play — tackles. Here is the full breakdown of the IDP123 scoring system:

  • 1 point: Assisted tackle, QB hit
  • 2 points: Solo tackle, tackle for loss
  • 3 points: Passes defensed, forced fumble, fumble recovery, safety, blocked kick
  • 6 points: Sack, interception, defensive touchdown

Not all scoring systems give such weight to sacks and interceptions. However, those two plays can change the shape of a game almost to the level of a defensive touchdown. The same should be considered when thinking of how passes defensed can have a similar impact to a forced fumble.

The only part of this scoring that could do with a review is a fumble recovery at three points. However, a fumble and the recovery add up to six points, the same as an interception or sack does. Therefore, while not 100% perfect, it serves its role in this system.
