The top scoring NFL defensive player of 2009 using the Defense Wins IDP Fantasy Football scoring system was Charles Woodson, star cornerback for the Green Bay Packers.
Charles had 66 solo tackles, 8 assisted tackles, 2 sacks, 9 interceptions, 4 forced fumbles, 1 fumble recovery, 18 pass defenses, and 3 touchdowns during the 2009 season. This tremendous effort scored 204 total points for his fantasy team owners! The former Heisman trophy winner from Michigan outscored Patrick Willis, linebacker for the San Francisco 49ers, by 5 points and outpointed the 3rd highest point total of Brian Cushing, linebacker for the Houston Texans, by 10.5 points.
For a defensive back to outpoint linebackers in individual defensive player fantasy football is pretty rare. The Associated Press recognized his great season by naming him the 2009 AP Defensive Player of the Year!
