2015 Free Agents – IDP


NFL: Pittsburgh Steelers at Kansas City ChiefsThe following is a list of all the defensive free agents for 2015 ranked according to potential future value in IDP fantasy leagues.

Players are broken down into linebacker, defensive line, and defensive back. For those in leagues that divide defensive line and defensive back, specific positions are provide for each player.

Keep in mind that defensive ends and outside linebackers can sometimes switch positional designation if they sign with a team that runs the opposite scheme of their former defense.

Key:

UFA – Unrestricted Free Agent (free to sign with any team)
RFA – Restricted Free Agent (current team can match any offer or receive draft pick compensation in return)
ERFA – Exclusive Rights Free Agent (current team has complete control of the player, but can choose not to tender a contract)
