Breaking down the top IDP options at DL, LB, DB

IDP leagues are growing in popularity, and we’re here to help you sort through the best options at each position.

Week 4 brings the first bye week for our IDP rosters with the New York Jets and San Francisco 49ers taking some much needed rest (even though it’s early in the season). Week three brought some key injuries on defense like Alec Ogletree, Christian Kirksey, Myles Jack, Malik Hooker and Keanu Neal, who tore his Achilles and will be out once again for the reminder of the season. Kemal Ishmael will be filling his spot for the time being while the Falcons are looking for Neal’s replacement.

Once again, the Seattle Seahawks claim the top spot and have given up the most fantasy points to opposing defensive ends followed by the New York Jets and Denver Broncos. The top three teams who give up the most to opposing linebackers are the Carolina Panthers, Cleveland Browns and Buffalo Bills. Lastly, the teams who give up the most fantasy points to opposing safety’s are the Atlanta Falcons, New York Giants and Chicago Bears.
