IDPwithBEE DB TIERS

IDPwithBEE DB TIERS

Time to dive into the DB tiers of the IDP world; don’t get this confused with rankings.  Unlike the LB’s and DL’s I’ve only done up to 5 tiers for DB with a bunch of them between 4 & 5; don’t mistake tiers 4 & 5 for least production as each to his own have their potential to rise up and out-produce those in other tiers.  Of course same can be said for those in the top 3 tiers, I just went with who will offer you the most upside and who provides you the best opportunity to win.  A handful of rookies are in prime position to make a name for them in the IDP world.  Here’s a breakdown of the tiers entering 2013.

  • Tier 01: Those who been there & done that and either can finish #1
  • Tier 02: upside tier with a few that could vault into tier 1 territory
  • Tier 03: a few rookies in prime opportunity, a sleeper and savvy vets
  • Tier 04:  Those who’ve done it in the past & just maintain their numbers, limited upside just consistency
  • Tier 05:  a handful of dynasty stashes, a CB whose lone value lies in return yardage league and a few have the upside while the rest put up numbers here and there
