IDP Rankings Week 16: Top defensive fantasy football players to start include Devin White and Jeremy Chinn

Congratulations if you survived the first round of the fantasy playoffs. For those in IDP formats, here's a look at the top Week 16 rankings.

In a week where defenses dominated the NFL, the fantasy football playoffs are now in full swing. No doubt a lot of shocks happened in your leagues. It was a brutal week. Therefore, if you nabbed a bye in Week 15, or secured a win, congratulations on surviving one of the most difficult fantasy weeks on record. Your matchup might not also be finished yet. There are four games still to go in Week 15 at the time of writing. However, regardless of whether you are in the semifinals, or waiting on a result, it’s never too early to start digesting my Week 16 IDP Rankings.

Week 16 IDP Rankings | 1-10

These Week 16 IDP rankings are just a guide. Most IDP leagues are scored very differently, and there is not a set standard. Therefore, I have put the position rank of each player next to their ranking and listed who they are playing, so you can adjust these rankings accordingly.

For example, if sacks are worth a lot more (say, 6 points), you might want to move the DEs up the board. If tackles are scored lower than 1.5 points for a solo tackle and 0.75 for an assisted tackle, move LBs down the board.
