Fantasy IDP Analysis: PPSnap Leaders going into Week 4

We’re in Week 4 of the 2017 season and we’re starting to see new faces and new top performers emerge on the IDP landscape. Efficiency is the name of the game and one of the best metrics when looking at fantasy viability of defensive players is Points-Per-Snap (PPSnap), or Points-Per-Opportunity (PPO). I’ve always like the sound of PPSnap, so that’s what we’re calling it from here on out. When looking at PPSnap it’s also important to keep the scoring system in mind. Fantasy points will vary based on whether your league is Tackle Heavy, Big Play, or another type of system.

Today I’m going to be looking at top IDPs going into Week 4 based on PPSnap. You’ll find sortable tables below for DL, LB, and DB positions with PPSnap numbers for both Tackle Heavy (TH) and Big Play (BP) scoring. Enjoy!

Data does include points from the Week 4 Thursday Night Football game between the Bears and Packers. Tables are sortable (Initially sorted by PPSnap (TH)).
