Fantasy football 2011 | Week 5 individual defensive player (IDP) projections

When I first unveiled our individual defensive player projections I said this was kind of a beta thing. Here we are five weeks deep and we haven’t made any changes.

We always end up with way too many defensive backs at the top and not enough linebackers. Any good IDPer knows that LBs are the juice that your fantasy team runs on. I was off this week so I spent some time making some minor modification to this list, which was generated using the old formula. If all goes well, these changes will be reflected across the whole IDP pool next week and we will ditch the beta tag.

For now, understand that the players at the top of this list can be expected to have good games in most IDP formats.
