Predicting the fantasy production of team defenses on a week-to-week basis is an exercise in futility. Use this past Thursday night game between the Atlanta Falcons and Tampa Bay Buccaneers as an example. Atlanta entered the game ranked 31st in total defense with just 5 fantasy points through two games. They put up 29. Tampa, which was right in the middle of the pack at 18th in total defense, had 7 fantasy points through two games. Here's the real kick in the pants: Atlanta hung 56 points on Tampa. The Bucs still finished with 11 fantasy points, thanks in large part to a garbage time pick-six off Falcons' back-up QB TJ Yates. Oh, and the Seattle Seahawks defense, taken as high as the sixth round in some drafts last month, has just 8 fantasy points on the year. If there was ever a reason to consider using Individual Defensive Players (IDP) in your fantasy football leagues, this is it.
