Individual Defensive Players (IDP)

Custom league managers may choose to include Individual Defensive Players (IDP's) in your custom league. By enabling IDP's, your league can draft, trade and track live scoring for defensive linemen (DL), linebackers (LB) and defensive backs (DB). You can also choose to include a Flex IDP (DP) in your league's starting roster slots.

Although there is no default IDP scoring, the NFL does offer standard scoring settings when IDPs are turned on in your league:
