Is DeMeco Ryans the future of the LB position?The linebacker position is to individual defender player (IDP) leagues, what running backs are to traditional offensive orientated leagues.  If you’re in a IDP league, your linebacking corps should be your bread and butter.  Since most leagues allow you to start 2 linebackers, it is essential to have solid depth at a potentially high scoring position.  Since most leagues reward 1-3 points per tackle, the most important stat to look at when selecting a linebacker is tackles (Note: be sure to note whether or not your league credits assisted tackles). While sacks, interceptions, and fumbles can really rack up some serious points, be careful not to place too much emphasis on stats that are the exception to the norm.  It is never a wise bet to bank on a player repeating numbers based on flukey turnovers.  With that, here are the GNUru’s 2007 Linebacker Rankings!
