Fantasy football 2011 | Week 2 individual defensive players projections (IDP)

Individual defensive player projections will be a little more reliable nextweek, but here’s what the formula says is going to happen. It blends last week’s performance along with expected game performance, that’s why so many of last week’s top IDP performers are near the top.

Like with any set of projections this is merely a guide. If you think Lawrence Timmons is going to be better than Sean Lee, play Timmons. If you are a Cowboys fan, and think Sean Lee is the next great linebacker in the league, you already have him in your lineup after last week’s performance.

Please note that these rankings are broken down by defensive level: linebackers, defensive lineman, defensive backs.

Reminder: Projections for touchdowns, interceptions and a couple other stats could be considered probability numbers as much as “projections.” When I say Mike Vick is going to throw for 1.5 TDs and 0.9 interceptions, it means he’s got a 50-50 shot of throwing two TDs and a 90 percent chance of throwing a pick. For fantasy points purposes, I multiplied the numbers by their respective fantasy points (4 points for passing touchdowns, -2 for turnovers, etc.) to help us split hairs.
