IDP Rankings Week 17: Top defensive fantasy football players to start

Congratulations if you survived the second round of the fantasy playoffs. For those in IDP formats, here's a look at the Week 17 rankings for those in IDP formats.

Well, IDP fans, this is it. The fantasy football championships are now here (unless you are in the 2% of leagues that play in Week 18). Which means it is now or never. Over four months of work comes down to one final weekend. There is also no more Thursday Night Football. As a result, you have more time to plan. However, do not take too long to plan your route to victory. Besides, it’s never too early to start digesting Week 17 IDP Rankings.

Week 17 IDP Rankings | 1-10

These Week 17 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.
