Fantasy football leagues with individual defensive players (IDP) are becoming increasingly popular. Scoring systems can vary considerably in IDP formats, which means nailing your draft is absolutely critical. Before going on the clock in any IDP leagues, you NEED to see what SportsLine's Scott Engel has to say.
Engel is an inaugural member of the Fantasy Sports Writers Association's Hall of Fame and has been a premier analyst and Fantasy personality for nearly 25 years. He is a four-time FSWA Award Winner and nine-time nominee.
In addition to being the Fantasy writer for the official site of the Seattle Seahawks since 2012, Engel's work has appeared on ESPN.com, NFL.com, Yahoo Sports, the New York Post, USA Today, SI.com and many other major sports news outlets. Engel also pulled off a three-peat in his highly competitive New York City Fantasy football league in 2019 that features high stakes players and top Fantasy experts.
Now Engel has released his 2020 IDP Fantasy football rankings, exclusively to SportsLine members.
We can tell you Engel is extremely high on Raiders linebacker Cory Littleton. And a massive shocker: Aaron Donald, a two-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year and five-time All-Pro selection, barely cracks the top 25.
Engel is also calling for a surprising linebacker you aren't even thinking about to finish in the top 10 of his Fantasy football IDP rankings! This pick could be the difference between winning BIG and going home with nothing.
So which defensive players should you build your team around? And which overlooked linebacker do you need to jump on? ... Join SportsLine here to see complete Fantasy football IDP rankings, all from a Fantasy Hall of Famer!
