Rankings have been updated to take players out from Thursday's Rams-Seahawks game.

Teams on bye this week: Detroit Lions, Miami Dolphins

We've split up our fantasy football rankings by traditional IDP (individual defensive players) positions: defensive line, linebacker and defensive back. Because scoring systems can vary greatly in IDP formats, these rankings will be based on the following scoring criteria:

  • Solo tackle: 1.5 points

  • Assisted tackle: 0.75 points

  • Tackle for loss: 2 points

  • Sack: 4 points

  • Interception: 5 points

  • Forced fumble: 4 points

  • Fumble recovery: 4 points

  • Defensive TD: 6 points

  • Safety: 2 points

  • Passes defensed: 1.5 points

In the headers of the rankings below, our three analysts will be abbreviated: Mike Clay (MC), Jim McCormick (JM) and Tristan H. Cockcroft (TC)
