Fantasy Football 2011: Week 4 IDP Rankings

Even with pink gear Lawrence Timmons still looks like one tough dude.
Even with pink gear Lawrence Timmons still looks like one tough dude.

As many of you know, IDP is a whole different animal.  Unlike on the offensive end where patience is a virtue, there's no time to waste. If you've been desperately clinging to a guy like David Harris while others in your league are picking up Sean Weatherspoon, NaVorro Bowman or Donald Butler (this week's hot LB to add), then it could come back to bite you. At this point, if there is a guy that is clearly outperforming a guy on your team, then pick up the new guy and send that garbage on your team to St. Elsewhere.If you need help with any IDP (or fantasy) decision, you can ask me on Twitter and I will get back to you ASAP.

Also be sure you check out my Rest of the Season IDP Rankings that came out Tuesday. They're one of a kind and should certainly help you. Let's get to the rankings for Week 4:
