The Top 99 Dynasty IDP Rankings include the following. Consideration of the latest NFL’s mid-August training camp reports. As well as any early preseason NFL player evaluation updates. Also weighed heavy in these dynasty IDP rankings. Age, projected ceilings, positional values, and team status, as well as a 3 to 5-year dynasty window.

These dynasty IDP rankings also target the majority of the balanced scoring formats, which has slowly become way more popular in the fantasy football community over the last eight or so years. And set the standard for most published rankings by any respectable site. But it’s always best to double-check that the rankings match your league’s format every time.

Dynasty IDP Rankings: Mid-August

1 – LB Shaquille Leonard – IND
2 – LB Roquan Smith – CHI

3 – LB Micah Parsons – Dallas Cowboys

All-around Linebacker/Edge Rusher Micah Parsons played 84% of the snaps in 16 games. And averaged making a combined tackle every 10th snap but could improve on his missed tackles this season. Sent blitzing 114 times, hitting home 41% of the time with 13 sacks, and getting in the face of opposing QBs 33 times. Here may lie our future overall 2023 dynasty IDP rankings biggest hitter in terms of production ceilings.

4 – LB Devin White – TB
5 – DL Myles Garrett – CLE
6 – DL Nick Bosa – SF
7 – LB T.J. Watt – PIT
8 – DB Jeremy Chinn – CAR
9 – DL Aaron Donald – LAR
10 – LB Jordyn Brooks – SEA
11 – LB Fred Warner – SF
12 – DB Derwin James Jr. – LAC
13 – DB Antoine Winfield Jr. – TB
14 – DL DeForest Buckner – IND
15 – LB Logan Wilson – CIN


16 – DB Xavier McKinney – New York Giants

All-around safety Xavier McKinney played 97% of the snaps in 17 games last season. Averaging making a combined tackle every 11th snap, with solid and less than a 10% missed tackle rate. Only targeted 56 times, allowing a solid 70% of those. The production vacuum alone here is hot. Production former 2022 starter Ryan Logan left behind is enough to think he’s a strong top 3 defensive back. And McKinney’s elite-like skillset doesn’t do anything but secure this dynasty ranking.

17 – LB Foye Oluokun – JAC
18 – DL Jeffery Simmons – TEN
19 – LB De’Vondre Campbell – GB
20 – DB Budda Baker – ARI
21 – DL Chase Young – WAS
22 – LB Eric Kendricks – MIN
23 – DB Minkah Fitzpatrick – PIT
24 – LB C.J. Mosley – NYJ
25 – LB Blake Martinez – NYG
26 – LB Bobby Wagner – LAR
27 – LB Cole Holcomb – WAS
28 – DB Jamal Adams – SEA
29 – DB Kamren Curl – WAS
30 – DL Brian Burns – CAR
31 – LB Nick Bolton – KC
32 – DB Johnathan Abram – LV
33 – DB Kyle Hamilton – BAL
34 – DB Jalen Thompson – ARI
35 – LB Isaiah Simmons – ARI
36 – LB Deion Jones – ATL
37 – DL Maxx Crosby – LV
38 – LB Bobby Okereke – IND


39 – DL Trey Hendrickson – Cincinnati Bengals

Defensive End Trey Hendrickson played 84% of the snaps in 16 games. And recorded on par defensive end combined tackle stats. But only sent blitzing nine times. And still recorded 14 sacks, 14 QB hits and applied pressure 45 times. Pound for pound, that’s the same version of what stud DL Max Crosby produced last season. But yet Crosby barely edged him out in most formats and had 208 more snaps than Hendrickson to do it in.

40 – DB Kyle Dugger – NE
41 – LB J. Owusu-Koramoah – CLE
42 – DB Kevin Byard – TEN
43 – DL Aidan Hutchinson – DET
44 – DB Jevon Holland – MIA
45 – DB Jessie Bates III – CIN
46 – LB Lavonte David – TB
47 – DL Danielle Hunter – MIN
48 – DL Sam Hubbard – CIN
49 – DB Justin Simmons – DEN
50 – LB Devin Lloyd – JAC
51 – DB Jordan Poyer – BUF
52 – DB Jayron Kearse – DAL


53 – LB Pete Werner – New Orleans Saints

Linebacker Pete Werner only played 40% of the snaps in 15 2021 contests. So our high lights at less than a 2% tackle rate with a hot 4-game sample. A snapshot that included an average of nearly nine combined tackles a contest. With two outstanding performances and one elite-like game. The Saints apparently indeed have found their future defensive captain this time. It’s just a matter of a little more time until he completely takes over.

54 – LB Jerome Baker – MIA
55 – DL Joey Bosa – LAC
56 – LB Nakobe Dean – PHI
57 – DL Josh Allen – JAC
58 – LB Shaq Thompson – CAR
59 – DB Harrison Smith – MIN
60 – LB Tremaine Edmunds – BUF
61 – LB Jordan Hicks – MIN
62 – DL Christian Wilkins – MIA
63 – LB Patrick Queen – BAL
64 – DL Leonard Williams – NYG
65 – LB Dre Greenlaw – SF
66 – LB Cody Barton – SEA
67 – DB Vonn Bell – CIN
68 – DL Marcus Davenport – NO
69 – LB Demario Davis – NO
70 – DB Tracy Walker III – DET


71 – LB Jaelan Phillips – Miami Dolphins

Linebacker/ Edge Rusher Jaelan Phillips had 54% of the snaps available in 17 games. In the process, Phillips recorded 42 combined and was credited with 8.5 sacks in his first year in the NFL. That’s above par for any rookie edge rusher. And puts him ahead of the curve going forward. Assuming he’s their primary pass rusher going forward and keeps developing.

72 – LB Shaquil Barrett – TB
73 – DB Jaquan Brisker – CHI
74 – DL Cameron Jordan – NO
75 – DB Tyrann Mathieu – NO
76 – DL DeMarcus Lawrence – DAL
77 – DB Jordan Whitehead – NYJ –
78 – LB Kayvon Thibodeaux – NYG
79 – LB Devin Lloyd – JAX
80 – LB T.J. Edwards – PHI
81 – LB Kyzir White – PHI
82 – LB Khalil Mack – LAC
83 – DB Xavier Woods – CAR


84 – DB Brandon Jones – Miami Dolphins

Strong Safety Brandon Jones played 64% of the snaps in 15 games last season. Averaging a combined tackle every 8th snap played. And with an expected increase in time on the field at that type of rate at production. The volume alone opens up a DB1 tier heading into his third year. He will have to clean up his coverage a lot. And all those missed tackles if he wants to maintain his tier in 2023’s dynasty IDP rankings.

85 – DL Montez Sweat – WAS
86 – LB Quay Walker – GB
87 – DB Lewis Cine – MIN
88 – LB Matt Milano – BUF
89 – LB Myles Jack – PIT
90 – DB Kenny Moore II – IND –
91 – LB Zach Cunningham – TEN
92 – DB Jalen Pitre – HOU
93 – LB Kamu Grugier-Hill – HOU
94 – DB Trevon Diggs – DAL
95 – LB Jamin Davis – WAS
96 – LB David Long Jr. – TEN
97 – LB Azeez Al-Shaair – SF
98 – LB Ernest Jones – LAR

99 – LB Zaven Collins – Arizona Cardinals

A recent fall from grace in camp has Collins falling hard in our dynasty IDP rankings. And with this report, his dynasty window’s short-term outlook has to be a push downward.
