Top 50 Fantasy Football Linebackers for 2012

More and more fantasy football leagues have started moving towards leagues with full defensive rosters. These types of leagues are called Individual Defensive Player leagues, or I.D.P. leagues.  They include offensive and defensive players, which defensively  normally  consists of two defensive linemen, two linebackers, and two defensive backs.  It gives fantasy addicts more of a reason to watch games, and thus more reasons to be competitive.  Below are my top 50 fantasy football linebackers for the 2012 season:
