ADP Values – Defensive Linemen

CLICK HERE FOR OUR CURRENT FANTASY DRAFT INFORMATION

With all the success Justin Tuck and Ndamukong Suh had last season it’s easy to forget that Jared Allen and Trent Cole are still terrific No.1 defensive linemen to draft. Allen has been the unquestioned No.1 pick at this position for awhile but his slow first half was frustrating, but to his credit, he had a great second half.

At the end of the day, fantasy owners expect the world from a player tiered as the top at his position and Allen was a minor bust for the lack of production he had in the first two months. If the Vikings fail to add a respectable veteran quarterback in free agency, it could be a challenge for Allen to accumulate more than ten or eleven sacks this year, and he may find another stretch where he goes into a slump.

The main reason for this is because Minnesota would have to rely on rookie Christian Ponder or youngster Joe Webb to be the starting quarterback and that could see the Vikings playing from behind in the second half of games. Throw in that the Williams Wall is going to miss the first month of the season (finally lost their StarCaps case), and it will be easier to take Allen out of the equation.

Speaking of four game suspensions Will Smith of the Saints is also expected to miss the first month because he was part of the StarCaps case, and I don’t think he’s worth is 27th overall ADP listing that is provided by My Fantasy League below. As it stands, we are in the middle of July, and these ADP values will change on a daily bases. When we do an updated article for these ADP trends, I believe you will see Smith move outside of the top 32 on the list.

Checking in at No.19 on this list is soon to be free agent Mathias Kiwanuka, and if he can return from his serious neck problem, and find the right team, he should be at least worth this price. Kiwanuka, when healthy, would be a clear top ten defensive linemen so there could be value here if we see him look good in the preseason.

That’s all for this article, but I will have more analysis for defensive backs and linebackers on the website soon. Again, I will have an updated ADP listing in August, but you can always go to My Fantasy League to find-out the recent trends on a daily basis. Good luck in your 2011 IDP fantasy football league(s).
