IDP Consensus Rankings Analysis: Week 14
Every week, our own Jeff Ratcliffe, Ross Miles, Mike Woellert, and Eric Yeomans give you their rankings for each of the three IDP positions. In this column, I take a look at their ranks and discuss my thoughts on where they agree and disagree.

Yet again, J.J. Watt tops our defensive linemen rankings. Jason Pierre-Paul, Jared Allen, Elvis Dumervil, and Justin Smith are to follow.
Facing the all-generous Cardinals offensive line, Chris Clemons should be in for a nice week. Our No. 12 ranked defensive linemen this week, Clemons has an impressive +22.6 pass rush grade so far this season and should make life difficult for the Cardinal’s passing game. On the same note, Bruce Irvin has a great opportunity in front of him as well; however, is a very situational player. Only 65 of Irvin’s 305 defensive snaps have come against the run this year, explaining his 2 solo tackles on the year as well as his rank of 52 this week. Irvin is only worth a start in sack-heavy scoring formats as a result.
