RANKPlayerPos.AgeTeamBase DefenseBruce KimbroughJosh JohnsonSkinny
1JJ WattDE27HOU3-4 Defense22Watt is the best DE in the game, your team has a significant weekly advantage if you roster him
2Aaron DonaldDT25LA4-3 Defense41Donald is redefining the utility of DTs in the IDP landscape.
3Khalil MackOLB25OAK4-3 Defense15Finally got DE designation from MFL. Should feast!
4Ezekiel AnsahDE27DET4-3 Defense73Double digit sacks and 40+ tackles in back to back years makes Ansah a young top target in dynasty.
5Leonard WilliamsDE22NYJ3-4 Defense98Worth a roster spiot on talent alone, Williams registered a bunch of tackles as a rookie and will hopefully has more sacks in future years.
6Carlos DunlapDE27CIN4-3 Defense144Michael Johnson's return hasn't slowed Dunlap down. He's still the DE to own in Cincy and an elite young DL.
7Cameron JordanDE27NO4-3 Defense119Jordan took a step forward in 2015 and has shown the ability to register multi-sack weeks.
8Everson GriffenDE29MIN4-3 Defense1211Griffen's been great, but his late breakout campaign helps many dynasty owners forget he's already 28.
9Muhammad WilkersonDE27NYJ3-4 Defense186Wilkerson is a top 10 guy in both tackles and sacks under the new regime.
10Calais CampbellDE28ARI3-4 Defense618A perrenial tackle-leader at DE, Campbell may never hit double digit sacks.
11DeForest BucknerDE22SF3-4 Defense322Very versatile. Could play DE in 3-4 or Tackle in 4-3
12Danielle HunterDE22MIN4-3 Defense1312Freak athlete! Still one of the youngest players in the NFL. Buy low now. Highest ceiling of this tier. DL1 upside.
13Olivier VernonDE26NYG4-3 Defense520Adequate sacks paired nicely with above average tackle counts to make Vernon a top 12-15 DL in 2015.
14Cameron HeywardDE27PIT3-4 Defense1515Heyward's a high floor, low ceiling DE that hasn't registered a multi-sack week in his 5 yr career.
15Jason Pierre-PaulDE28NYG4-3 Defense1119Verdict is still out. When healthy one of the league's best. Good DL depth for NYG. Buy super low if you can.
16Fletcher CoxDT26PHI4-3 Defense257Cox is finally producing impressive sacks to go along with his perrenially high tackle #s.
17Linval JosephDT28MIN4-3 Defense1617
18Kawann ShortDT28CAR4-3 Defense2014After 2015, Kawann's name is now on the "short" list for best interior DL in the game.
19Jabaal SheardDT33NE4-3 Defense2213
20Ndamukong SuhDT30MIA4-3 Defense1026
21Akiem HicksDE27CHI3-4 Defense19
22Sheldon RichardsonDE26NYJ3-4 Defense2316Richardson appears well behind Wilkerson as the NYJ DL to own, but still has intriguing upside.
23Robert QuinnDE26LA4-3 Defense2910Quinn was on a good pace with 5 sacks in 8 weeks before his season ended prematurely. Top 3 upside at a discount.
24Derek WolfeDE26DEN3-4 Defense1723Signed big extension. Showed well late. Great depth guy.
25Damon HarrisonDT28NYG4-3 Defense835
26Joey BosaDT/DE22SD3-4 Defense1727Regressed from freshman to junior season. Great combine. Top draft talent.
27Michael BennettDE31SEA4-3 Defense2624Solid floor vet
28Jurrell CaseyDE27TEN3-4 Defense3021Great tackle numbers and a decent number of sacks each year, Casey will plug a DL1 roster spot adequately.
29Kyle WilliamsDT32BUF3-4 Defense28
30Brandon GrahamDE28PHI4-3 Defense1343
31Yannick NgakoueDE21JAX4-3 Defense3129Could develop into solid edge rusher.
32Stephen TuittDE31PIT3-4 Defense3428The youngster won't be a stud every-week, but he's shown that potential
33Geno AtkinsDT28CIN4-3 Defense3330Double digit sacks and 40+ tkls makes Atkins a top 12 DL and top 5 DT after a slow 2014.
34Cliff AvrilDE30SEA4-3 Defense2441Falling slightly behind teammate Bennett, Avril's had a nice year with improved tackle #s.
35Malik JacksonDE27JAX4-3 Defense3832Free Agent that could cash in. Good young DE that represents value.
36Rob NinkovichDE33NE4-3 Defense3733Ninkovich carries some name value, but was more of a roster filler than impact player in 2015.
37Frank ClarkDE23SEA4-3 Defense2151
38Corey LiugetDE26SD3-4 Defense3736Above avg tackle volumes and meager sacks likely make Liuget more important to his NFL team than your fantasy rotser.
39Gerald McCoyDT28TB4-3 Defense4825Sacks abound, but so do injuries, for one of the best interior DL in the league.
40Demarcus LawrenceDE25DAL4-3 Defense3637Lawrence is a starter, but isn't producing at a start-able level yet. With Gregory suspension and Hardy situation is buy low candidate.
41Carl NassibDE23CLE3-4 Defense3938Rising on peoples charts. Great work ethic. Brother of Ryan Nassib.
42Dante Fowler Jr.DE22JAX4-3 Defense4631Jacksonville's new LEO rusher will miss 2015 with a torn ACL and won't contrubite before 2016 or later.
43William GholstonDE25TB4-3 Defense3246
44Kony EalyDE25CAR4-3 Defense44405 sacks in 2015 was promising from the sophomore, but we'll need more before he's IDP-relevant. Had huge Super Bowl!
45Charles TapperDEDAL4-3 Defense4539
46Trey FlowersDE23NE4-3 Defense42Raw, but is in a good system to grow. Could be a year away from a bigger role.
47Clinton McDonaldDT30TB4-3 Defense42
48Jared CrickDE27DEN3-4 Defense3550
49Henry AndersonDE25IND3-4 Defense4052An intriguing and brief rookie campaign varied from white hot to lukewarm before season-ending injury.
50Kerry HyderDT25DET4-3 Defense3855
51Bennie LoganDT27PHI4-3 Defense5934
52Jaye HowardDE33KC3-4 Defense4945
53Cameron WakeDE35MIA4-3 Defense47Aging vet coming off injury.
54Noah SpenceDETB4-3 Defense4154Character issues,otherwise would be 1st round pick.Top 8 if DE/#CanUSay Mack OLB
55Mario Edwards Jr.DT22OAK4-3 Defense5045Helps playing opposite Mack.
56Marcell DareusDT27BUF3-4 Defense4353
57Chris JonesDE22KC3-4 Defense51
58Randy GregoryDE24DAL4-3 Defense52After a quiet rookie year, Gregory's talent makes him a breakout candidate, however he has been suspended the first 4 games of 16.
59Jonathan BullardDE23CHI3-4 Defense6244Great against the run.
60Michael JohnsonDE29CIN4-3 Defense53Johnson returns to the city where he originally had success under Zimmer. Will there still be opportunities for IDP success?
61Robert NkemdicheDE22ARI3-4 Defense54Character concerns.
62A'Shawn RobinsonDT21DET4-3 Defense55Versatile. Can play most positions on the line.
63Desmond BryantDE31CLE3-4 Defense56
64Ian WilliamsDT27SF3-4 Defense57
65DeMontre MooreDE24FA58Great ceiling. Someone should emerge there.
66Mike DanielsDT37GB3-4 Defense61
67Jihad WardDE22OAK4-3 Defense7548
68Quinton DialDT26SF3-4 Defense63
69Jarran ReedNT23SEA4-3 Defense7749Similiar skill set to Kenny Clark with limitations in the passing game.
70Arik ArmsteadDE23SF3-4 Defense8147It's hard to see why any SF DL would suddenly break out in 2016, but Armstead has undeniable physical gifts.
71Brandon WilliamsDT28BAL3-4 Defense64A tackle hog, 2 sacks in 2015 made him a pretty low ceiling option.
72Adolphus WashingtonDTBUF3-4 Defense74563-technique DT with past character issues; High ceiling
73Allen BaileyDT27KC3-4 Defense65
74Chris LongDE31NE4-3 Defense66
75Eddie GoldmanDT23CHI3-4 Defense67
76Danny SheltonDT23CLE3-4 Defense68Great run stopper.
77Greg HardyDE28DAL4-3 Defense69Hardy flashed his high ceiling in his first year back after suspension, but disappeared for weeks at a time.
78Kendall LangfordDT31LA4-3 Defense70
79Lawrence GuyDT26BAL3-4 Defense71
80Dontari PoeDT26KC3-4 Defense72
81William HayesDE31LA4-3 Defense73
82Dion JordanDE26MIA4-3 Defense76
83Sharrif FloydDT24MIN4-3 Defense78He has disappointed, but has an athletic upside. Buy low candidate in DT required leagues.
84Ra'Shede HagemanDE26ATL4-3 Defense79
85Charles JohnsonDE30CAR4-3 Defense80
86Andrew BillingsNT20CIN4-3 Defense82Quick for his 310 lb body. Dominates at point of attack. 19 years old!
87Michael BennettDT31JAX4-3 Defense83
88Hassan RidgewayNTIND3-4 DefenseWell rounded defender with high ceiling.
89Kenny ClarkNT21GB3-4 DefenseGreat run stuffer, but needs work against the pass.
90Cornellius CarradineDE27SF3-4 DefenseOpportunity knocked in 2015, but Carradine may need a new team before he breaks out.

96Chris BakerDT29WAS3-4 Defense
97Jason HatcherDE34WAS3-4 Defense
98Jacquies SmithDE25TB4-3 DefenseAfter a hot start, Smith was consistently mediocre for the majority of 2015.
99Owamagbe OdighizuwaDE24NYG4-3 DefenseOO failed to make an impact in his rookie year, despite a nice opportunity.
100Mario WilliamsDE31MIA4-3 Defense

102Robert AyersDE31TB4-3 Defense
103Nick FairleyDT29NO4-3 Defense
104Sheldon RankinsDT22NO4-3 DefensePerhaps the best interior disrupter in this years class. He's not Aaron Donald.
105Michael BrockersDT26LA4-3 Defense
106Vernon ButlerDT22CAR4-3 DefenseRaw, plays across the D-Line, sheds blocks, can get after QB
