It’s always tough to determine what makes a player a sleeper or a bust during the preseason. JJ Watt was being drafted as a top 10 DL last year, but he finished as the #1 DL by a wide margin, so did that make him a sleeper? Jared Allen, on the other hand, was typically the first or second DL off the board, yet finished at DL16 for the season, so did that make him a bust? This question is best answered by looking at opportunity cost.

As we start rolling out the 2013 IDP Rankings here at Razzball, I thought I would start with the easiest position first. JJ Watt is the consensus #1 IDP this year, and his 2012 numbers were even more impressive than those of Calvin Johnson and Adrian Peterson considering he was a 3-4 Defensive End. While you might have trouble deciding between a gamut of players to take first at any other position, you can rest easy knowing that Watt should be the first DL taken and that it took me three tries before correctly spelling gamut.
