What does I mean in Fantasy Football?


When you come across the term ‘I’ in fantasy football (FFB) stats, it’s an abbreviation for interception. An interception happens when a player on the defensive team catches a pass that was meant for a player on the offensive team. This usually results in a turnover, where the defensive team becomes the offensive team.

Interceptions are typically made by defensive backs and linebackers who are in charge of covering wide receivers (WRs), tight ends (TEs), and running backs (RBs). It’s a crucial part of the game that can quickly change the momentum in favour of the intercepting team.

In FFB, the ‘I’ abbreviation appears when you’re checking a defense’s stats. A team’s defense can score points through interceptions, as well as through other means like recovering fumbles, sacking the quarterback (QB), and scoring touchdowns (TDs).
