IDP Weekly Player Rankings - Week 6
Darin Tietgen
October 15, 2009
Comments Comments       Print this page Print 

You will notice that our weekly rankings are now "tiered", or broken apart into similarly-ranked groups.  For example, the drop-off from, say, David Harris to Lance Briggs isn't really that huge because they are in the same tier.  Use the tiering as a supplement to these rankings to assist you in your lineup decisions.  And as with all fantasy rankings, they are simply a guide to predict potential performance, not a guarantee.  Good luck this week, and hope there's a "W" in your future!
