2011 LB Player Rankings

Last Updated – August 27th

It seems like experts have been writing off Ray Lewis as a player to watchout for a decline in production for about six years now. At the end of the day, Lewis continues to rack-up solid tackle numbers, and I believe he will do so until the day he retires. If you look at our rankings below, you will notice that I actually have Lewis ranked over Paul Posluszny in our rankings and that is because of health.

Posluszny would be a clear top three linebacker for IDP fantasy football if he could play a full schedule of games each season. In his first four years in the league, Posluszny has played one full season (three years ago) and has missed nineteen games due to injury in that time. If you’re willing to go with the health risks, POZ is probably worth taking as the fourth linebacker off the board, but make sure you understand what you’re getting into.

To provide a balanced scoring system between tackle heavy leagues and big play leagues I have a kept solo tackles and assists at two and one but bumped up big play scoring by a point or two for each category. Make sure you check with your scoring rules before you draft to adjust for your league.

Note – check bottom of page for players with a star(s) next to their name for eligibility concerns.

Please Note

 

*** – Many standard IDP leagues like ESPN, Yahoo etc, have Terrell Suggs only eligible as a linebacker. Make sure he is eligible in your league before selecting him as a top lineman.

 

** – Elvis Dumervil is set to return to defensive end as the Broncos are switching back to a 4-3 scheme. Check your eligibility rules in your league, to find out if/when he will can line status.

 

* – Mario Williams is moving to linebacker but should keep his defensive line eligibility for this season as he played on the line all last year.
