Punch Drunk Wonderland

Getting Defensive (The BIG IDP League)

Getting-Defensive-League-Screenshot-02Getting Defensive is a 40-team all defensive player redraft league brought to you by Punch Drunk Wonderland, and hosted on MyFantasyLeague.com. This year’s league will be sponsored by Fantasy Sharks, numberFire and Pro Football Focus. The league will be made up of 4 conferences each with two 5-team divisions. It’s essentially four 10-team leagues as each conference will have the full player pool. There will be conference and overall playoffs. Starting rosters feature an 11 man team indicative of an actual defense. With the roster setup you can choose to make your team look like a 3-4, 4-3, Nickel formation, etc. Realistically, we all know defensive fantasy football comes down mostly to tackles. So, good luck finding your IDP machines.
