Here are my early rankings of the Top 75 Individual Defensive Players for the 2006 season. While scoring systems often vary in leagues that use IDPs, my rankings place an emphasis on tackles, sacks, interceptions and fumble recoveries. Points are usually awarded for TDs and safeties, and passes defensed can also be considered. I also strive to find a healthy balance between linemen, linebackers and defensive backs within the Top 75 for your drafting needs. These rankings will serve as a quality draft guide no matter how your commissioner decides to weigh the top categories, as they focus on the most important statistics generally used in IDP leagues.
