2020 IDP Rankings - Top 120 Defensive Players for Fantasy Football

Welcome back RotoBallers! Below you will find our staff's updated 2020 fantasy football rankings (top 120) for IDP formats. For those of you who are not familiar with fantasy football IDP leagues, these are formats where individual defensive players (IDP) are drafted by fantasy managers and accrue points for defensive stats like tackles, sacks, interceptions, etc. Our staff ranks include linebackers, defensive line, and defensive backs.

These rankings are being released after the conclusion of the 2020 NFL Draft, and things will of course change as we get closer to the start of the NFL season. Adjustments will be made to all of our staff rankings all offseason long up until Week 1, so check back regularly for any player movements. You can also see our staff's ongoing rankings analysis articles discussing draft values, sleepers, players to target/avoid, the NFL rookies, and analyzing the NFL Draft results.

And of course, be sure to also check out our 2020 fantasy football rankings dashboard and bookmark it! That RotoBaller rankings homepage is loaded up with lots of other great staff rankings - all updated after the NFL Draft - including our PPR Rankings, Half-PPR rankingsStandard league rankings, Best Ball rankingsDynasty League rankings and 2020 NFL Rookie rankings. Bookmark those pages, and prepare for all of your drafts.
