Fantasy Football Week 10: IDP rankings for linebackers, DLs and DBs


Week 10 IDP rankings for linebackers, defensive linemen and defensive backs are here.

Let's take address some quick hits in the IDP world:

Lavonte David went nutso against the Raiders with 16 tackles. I'm buying and he should be viewed as a high-end LB2 for the rest of the year.

Luke Kuechly has 13 tackles per game over his last four games. Umm wow.

Jasper Brinkley had 13 tackles last week and is on the rise. I still would like to see another nice game from him before counting on him.

Bruce Carter had 10 tackles last week and he's locked in as a low-end LB2 for the rest of the year.

Brad Jones followed up his Week 8 total of 10 with a nine-tackle outing in Week 9. He's on a bye this week and should return as an LB2 for the rest of the year.

Kenny Phillips is out so Stevie "Big Play" Brown gets a start. I have him ranked fairly high this week.

Charles Tillman might miss Sunday's game with his wife due any day now. Some players don't go this route and it's hard to believe Travis Henry actually played in so many season games.
