The Ocho – An IDP Look at the Last 8 Games of 2015

The Ocho – An IDP Look at the Last 8 Games of 2015

More leagues are testing the boundaries by adding IDP (or Individual Defensive Players). Sadly, some owners may view the value of IDP somewhere in the range of the TE or K position, arguing that IDP just doesn’t matter. They may simply print up an ECR ranking of IDP players.
