As we approach mid-season of this fantastic 2011-2012 NFL Season, I will dig into some of the top performers on the defensive side of the ball. This is my 1st annual IDPw/BEE Mid-Season All-IDP Team and I’m going to run with my favorite defensive formation, the 3-4. We’re going to see how these players performed up until mid-season and can they hold their ranking atop everyone else? Without further of due I give to you my All-IDP Team!

And there you have it folks, some where sleepers, studs and probably you’ve never heard of some before. If you’re like me then IDP is the route to go and playing in these leagues gets you acquainted with the defensive side of the ball, the depth and the importance and it also brings the excitement to the game. As we look forward to the 2nd half of the 2011-2012 NFL season I see no drop off with neither of these IDP players, only one i have is can Chris Houston keep it up? and who’ll win the sack race, Ware or Allen? Stay tuned.
