When it comes to IDP leagues, one of the most frequent questions I hear from people is, “In what round should start drafting IDPs?” The problem here is that there is no one-size-fits-all answer to their question. Roster requirements and scoring systems will ultimately dictate where it makes sense to start picking IDPs, but how exactly do we figure out where that point occurs?
In the first part of this series, I took a look at how we can apply Value Based Drafting (VBD) to IDPs and used this methodology to establish VBD rankings for the top 150 IDPs in a balanced scoring system with a starting roster of two DLs, three LBs, and two DBs. Using baselines at each position allows for all three positions to be placed on the same scale so we can see how our options at each position stack up against each other. This approach takes the guesswork out of it for us as fantasy owners, and allows us to maximize value at each pick.
