The IDP Tipster Is Covering A Few Safeties To Either Buy High Or Buy Low On For Winning Out The Rest Of The Season And Into The Fantasy Football Playoffs.


In this segment of “The IDP Tipster Live-Cast,” we hit five team’s safety dues who vary from buying high to buying low on with the matchups to win out the season heading into our playoffs. We rank them in pairs from first to fifth and mention just how strong those matchups coming up can mean going for the throat if a trade deal or waiver wire pick up can happen.

This hard-hitting segment’s topics also included…

Eric Reid and Mike Adams with the most favorable matchups in a stretch…

The Bronco’s Simmons looks to finish out the season strong…

Patriot’s longtime safeties Chung and McCourty with that upside…

How the Lions strong safety Diggs can boost your playoff run…

The Cowboy’s Heath and Jones hold solid potential down the stretch…

As well as recapping a few other players rest of the season values…

And of course, hitting on a few others as we go and then wrap it up by recapping in total who ranks by pairs from each team offering different levels of value to try to make a move.

All this while in collaboration with the IDP Guys, Nate, and Johny and where the mainstream media “takes” can’t touch the “No BullShit Content” coming at you as we guide IDP owners into winning with the defensive side of fantasy football.

So be sure to catch “The IDP Tipster Live-Cast” as I drop all the IDP knowledge I got to offer on periscope via Twitter.

And again on Sundays at 11:00 am eastern for start and sit questions in collaboration with “The IDP Tipster Live” producers and co-hosts Nate and Jon of the renowned and original IDP Guys Podcast controlling the behind the scene chaos.

With six teams on a bye for Week 11, there will be some players missing from these rankings. Here are my top 10 rankings at each position based off production and matchup.


Linebacker

Rankings

  1. Darius Leonard96 Tackles (64 solo), 8 tackles for a loss, 4 sacks, 2 pass deflections, 3 forced fumbles, 2 fumble recoveries. Matchup: Tennessee Titans (Give up the 12th most points to Linebackers)
  2. Blake Martinez79 Tackles (53 solo), 8 tackles for a loss, 4 sacks, 2 pass deflections. Matchup: Seattle Seahawks (Give up the 6th most points to Linebackers)
  3. Leighton Vander Esch76 Tackles (61 solo), 2 tackles for a loss, 3 pass deflections, 1 interception. Matchup: Atlanta Falcons (Give up the 15th most points to Linebackers)
  4. Luke Kuechly72 Tackles (57 solo), 11 tackles for a loss, 2 sacks, 2 pass deflections, 1 interception. Matchup: Detroit Lions (Give up the 8th most points to Linebackers)
  5. Cory Littleton84 Tackles (59 solo), 6 tackles for a loss, 3 sacks, 9 pass deflections, 1 interception, 2 blocked kicks, 1 Safety. Matchup: Kansas City Chiefs (Give up the 32nd most points to Linebackers)
  6. T.J. Watt43 Tackles (30 solo), 9 tackles for a loss, 8 sacks, 1 pass deflection, 2 forced fumbles, 1 blocked kick. Matchup: Jacksonville Jaguars (Give up the 9th most points to Linebackers)
  7. Todd Davis67 Tackles (48 solo), 2 tackles for a loss, 0.5 sack, 5 pass deflections, 1 interception, 1 Touchdown. Matchup: Los Angeles Chargers (Give up to 19th most points to Linebackers)
  8. Telvin Smith73 Tackles (55 solo), 3 tackles for a loss, 1 sack, 1 pass deflection, 1 interception, 1 fumble recovery. Matchup: Pittsburgh Steelers (Give up the 20th most points to Linebackers)
  9. Jordan Hicks78 Tackles (53 solo), 5 tackles for a loss, 3 sacks, 4 pass deflections, 1 fumble recovery. Matchup: New Orleans Saints (Give up the 22nd most points to Linebackers)
  10. Mason Foster79 Tackles (48 solo), 3 tackles for a loss, 1 pass deflection, 1 fumble recovery. Matchup: Houstan Texans (Give up the 11th most points to Linebackers)

The Top Spot

Darius Leonard has been slightly less productive in his last couple games. He has still been able to come up with chunks of tackles but hasn’t been doing much else. This is a result of Clayton Geathers having missed time or was coming back from injury. I personally feel the defensive play calling was dialed back slightly. 

Leonard was used more often blitzing earlier in the season and was quite successful. He had 4 sacks in his first 4 games. In Week 5 Geathers was was forced from action with a concussion and neck injury sidelining him for 2 games. Going forward Geathers is healthy and back to full time. As a result the Colts have a reliable tackler in the secondary. This allows them to be a little more aggressive without having to worry about missing tackles. Leonard should be able to blitz more frequently now:

Who to Watch

Cory Littleton is having a great year and should be everybody’s pick for most improved player…maybe Mitch Trubisky. Littleton would normally be in the top two each week but has a really tough matchup this week. The Chiefs have a way of killing players fantasy days on a weekly basis. You don’t sit Littleton, just not one of my top plays.

Please Stop it Dallas

Leighton Vander Esch…what more can you say about Leighton Vander Esch except Sean Lee stay off the field. Vander Esch should have shown in his starts that Lee is no longer necessary for the Cowboys and should move forward with Jaylen Smith and himself. Vander Esch proved this once again Week 10 coming up with 13 tackles, 1 pass deflection, and an interception. He does not have the greatest matchup against the Falcons but he is a must start. Watch this beautiful pick he makes in coverage:

 

Defensive Back

Rankings

  1. Derwin James64 Tackles (42 solo), 4 tackles for a loss, 3.5 sacks, 7 pass deflections, 1 interception. Matchup: Denver Broncos (Give up the 2nd most points to Safeties)
  2. Harrison Smith47 Tackles (37 solo), 4 tackles for a loss, 3 sacks, 5 pass deflections, 3 interceptions, 1 forced fumble, 1 fumble recovery. Matchup: Chicago Bears (Give up 9th most points to Safeties)
  3. Tyrann Mathieu 52 Tackles (44 solo), 3 tackles for a loss, 2 sacks, 5 pass deflections, 2 interceptions, 1 fumble recovery. Matchup: Washington Redskins (Give up the 11th most points to Safeties)
  4. Landon Collins71 Tackles (51 solo), 2 tackles for a loss, 4 pass deflections, 1 forced fumble. Matchup: Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Give up the 10th most points to Safeties)
  5. Jessie Bates III- 71 Tackles (45 solo), 4 pass deflections, 3 interceptions, 1 Touchdown. Matchup: Baltimore Ravens (
    Give up the 15th most points to Safeties)
  6. Kareem Jackson– 51 Tackles (41 solo), 4 tackles for a loss, 10 pass deflections, 2 interceptions, 2 forced fumbles, 1 fumble recovery. Matchup: Washington Redskins (Give up the 28th most points to Cornerbacks)
  7. Damontae Kazee– 46 Tackles (36 solo), 1 tackle for a loss, 7 pass deflections, 5 interceptions, 1 forced fumble. Matchup: Dallas Cowboys (Give up the 14th most points to Safeties)
  8. John Johnson III- 63 Tackles (39 solo), 1 tackle for a loss, 8 pass deflections, 3 interceptions, 1 forced fumble. Matchup: Kansas City Chiefs (Give up the 17th most points to Safeties)
  9. Eddie Jackson– 35 Tackles (31 solo), 2 tackles for a loss, 1 sack, 5 pass deflections, 2 interceptions, 2 forced fumbles, 1 fumble recovery, 1 Touchdown. Matchup: Minnesota Vikings (Give up the 7th most points to Safeties)
  10. Justin Reid– 49 Tackles (40 solo), 5 pass deflections, 2 interceptions, 1 fumble recovery. Matchup: Washington Redskins (Give up the 11th most points to Safeties)

The Top Spot

Derwin James is a strong candidate for Defensive Rookie of the Year. He is one of your do it all Safeties. Not to mention he has one of the best matchups this week against the Denver Broncos. The Broncos before their bye in Week 10 had just given up 10 total tackles to Justin Reid, and 6 total tackles to Tyrann Mathieu. In that case both starting Safeties scored well. Derwin James should be able to continue to rack up tackles and may even come up with another sack. Watch him plow through the running back in his pursuit for a sack:

Who to Watch

Landon Collins is a name you would think you would hear more about. Though he has only forced one turnover this season, he still has 71 total tackles. This week he gets the Buccaneers and “Fitzmagic“. Collins should be all over the field in this one making plays. As a result I believe he comes down with his first interception of the year.

Eddie Jackson is a name you hear mostly for bye week fillers but has really played well this season. Especially his past two games where he has come up with 12 tackles and 1 tackles for a loss. Jackson gets a solid matchup this week against the Vikings. They give up the 7th most points to Safeties, lets see if he can keep up the good play.

 

Defensive Line

Rankings

  1. Chandler Jones– 29 Tackles (22 solo), 8 tackles for a loss, 8.5 sacks, 4 pass deflections, 3 forced fumbles, 1 fumble recovery. Matchup: Oakland Raiders (Give up the Most points to Defensive Ends)
  2. Jason Pierre-Paul– 27 Tackles (23 solo), 9 tackles for a loss, 8 sacks, 1 forced fumble. Matchup: New York Giants (Give up the 7th most points to Defensive Ends)
  3. Demarcus Lawrence 39 Tackles (27 solo), 12 tackles for a loss, 6.5 sacks, 1 forced fumble, 1 fumble recovery. Matchup: Atlanta Falcons (Give up the 9th most points to Defensive Ends)
  4. J.J. Watt– 32 Tackles (25 solo), 11 tackles for a loss, 9 sacks, 2 pass deflections, 4 forced fumbles. Matchup: Washington Redskins (Give up the 17th most points to Defensive Ends)
  5. Danielle Hunter– 43 Tackles (30 solo), 13 tackles for a loss, 11.5 sacks, 1 fumble recovery, 1 Touchdown. Matchup: Chicago Bears (Give up the 11th most points to Defensive Ends)
  6. Aaron Donald– 34 Tackles (23 solo), 16 tackles for a loss, 12.5 sacks, 1 pass deflection, 1 forced fumble, 2 fumble recoveries. Matchup: Kansas City Chiefs (Give up the 26th most points to Defensive Tackles)
  7. Kenny Clark– 40 Tackles (28 solo), 6 tackles for a loss, 5 sacks, 2 pass deflections, 1 forced fumble, 2 fumble recoveries. Matchup: Seattle Seahawks (Give up the 3rd most points to Defensive Tackles)
  8. Melvin Ingram III- 28 Tackles (19 solo), 6 tackles for a loss, 5.5 sacks, 3 pass deflections, 1 interception, 1 forced fumble. Matchup: Denver Broncos (Give up the 26th most points to Defensive Ends)
  9. Matt Ioannidids- 25 Tackles (19 solo), 6 tackles for a loss, 7.5 sacks, 1 forced fumble, 1 fumble recovery. Matchup: Houston Texans (Give up the 2nd most points to Defensive Ends)
  10. Mario Addison– 21 Tackles (14 solo), 8 tackles for a loss, 7.5 sacks, 2 forced fumbles. Matchup: Detroit Lions (Give up the 8th most points to Defensive Ends)

The Top Spot

Chandler Jones is a no brain top option this week. He has 5.5 sacks in his last five games and is going against the biggest losers of the NFL season in Jon Gruden’s Oakland Raiders who give up the most points to Defensive Ends. I expect to see both Chandler Jones and Benson Mayowa to make a living in the Raiders’s backfield. Jones will probably have another multiple sack game. He was able to come up with two against the Chiefs.

Who to Watch

Jason Pierre-Paul gets his revenge game against the team that drafted him. Considering the Giants pass rush or lack there of, that trade looks terrible. The Giants Offensive Line is abysmal and Pierre-Paul should be able to see his old buddy “Immobile Eli” (that’s my nickname for Eli Manning) face to face with Eli’s back on the turf.

Two Defensive Tackles made the list. Aaron Donald is a generational talent. Since he logged his first sack in week 4, he has a total of 12.5. My motto is almost never start anybody on defense against the Chiefs but thats almost two sacks a game. Kenny Clark has a great matchup against the Seahawks who also have a poor offensive line. Clark also benefits from the run heavy scheme that the Seahawks run. Because of this Clark should grab a chunk of tackles and have a good chance at a sack.

Melvin Ingram III does not have a great matchup either but has been playing very well as of late. He has 4 sacks in his last 5 games and faces a divisional opponent at home this weekend. Case Keenum was only sacked twice last week but I think Ingram should be able to get to him. Watch him destroy Derek Carr:

Matt Ioannidis Has also played great as of late. He has 4.5 sacks in his last 3 games and has a plus matchup against the Texans. Expect to see that sack total to go up after Week 11 as Ioannidis is on the rise.

That is a roundup of my top 10 Rankings at each position. There are some new players on the lists with great matchups. Tune in next week to see how the Rankings have changed.

Taking a look at the NFL Week 10 from a IDP perspective; notes on what our writer @Orangeman3142 saw this weekend.


This is a continuation of our weekly article series that breaks down what we saw this week in IDP fantasy football. What happened and why, what we got right and what we got wrong and more importantly how to move forward and get better next week. We look at possible waivers and trends, snap counts and issues that affect production for your IDP team. Part four will cover the last four games of week Ten.

Make sure you caught parts one, two and three from earlier in the week and catch my IDP start or sit article dropping Sunday morning. Let’s get into it.

Miami Dolphins @ Green Bay Packers

Embed from Getty Images

Dolphins: For the third time in a month Raekwon McMillan (LB) led the Dolphins in IDP production with 8 combined tackles and 0.5 TFL on 79% of snaps this week. While that snap percentage still isn’t the best he’s been a hell of a lot more productive recently than he was at the start of the season. I’m getting pretty close feeling confident in starting him in a deeper league, in my all IDP league or a super deep league with three or four linebackers I would feel pretty good about adding him and giving him a go.

TJ McDonald (S) was next with 7 solo tackles on 100% of snaps and has proved to be the only reliable safety on the Dolphins with the drama regarding Reshad Jones (S), who had 3 solo tackles and 1 PD on only 79% of snaps this week in another down week for him. With Jones not playing his full snap load and not producing anywhere close to where he was at this point last season plus pulling stunts like taking himself out of games he’s proved unreliable this year and the young stud Minkah Fitzpatrick (S) hasn’t been able to take over his position yet.

Fitzpatrick had a quiet week as well with 2 combined tackles and 1 PD on 96% of snaps this week, if this Jones thing shakes out how I think it will he’ll end up as a starting safety sooner rather than later so if you have room on your bench he’s definitely worth an add to wait and see if that happens.

Kiko Alonso (LB) had a decent game with 6 combined tackles on 100% of snaps and remains a weekly auto start mid tier one guy. Jerome Baker (LB) did nothing, recording 1 solo tackle on only 65% of snaps and has been made unstartable after his few weeks of nice production. Cameron Wake (DE) and Robert Quinn (DE) both had great games but are far too spotty to be anything other than a spot start and Davon Godchaux (DT) only had 2 tackle assists and 0.5 TFL on 56% of snaps this week and remains a dynasty futures prospect.

Packers: Water is wet and Blake Martinez (LB) leads the Packers in IDP production. He had 8 solo tackles playing 100% of snaps and remains a tier one weekly auto start. Kenny Clark (DT) had a nice game as well with 6 combined tackles, 1 sack and 1 TFL on 82% of snaps and has been a decent tier two defensive tackle option most of this season.

Josh Jones (S) seems to be the guy they’ve chosen to fill the void at safety left by the departure of Ha Ha Clinton Dix (S) to the Redskins. Jones had 5 solo tackles on 90% of snaps played and may end up being a decent option at safety if you need help in that department.

Jaire Alexander (CB) had another nice game with 5 solo tackles and 2 PD playing 87% of snaps and has proved himself to be a nice option at corner in decent mathchups. Mike Daniels (DT) and Clay Matthews (LB, EDGE) both had stinkers but Daniels remains a decent end of tier two defensive tackle option and Matthews should only be played in OLB or EDGE specific slots anyways.

Kentrell  Brice (S) still is bad and had 2 combined tackles on only 19% of snaps. Raven Greene (S) took a bunch of Brice’s snaps and didn’t do much with them, 1 solo tackle, 1 sack, 1 TFL and 1 PD on 44% of snaps this week. Of the three safeties that played this week Jones is the only one that even intrigues me slightly.

Seattle Seahawks @ LA Rams

Embed from Getty Images

Hawks: It definitely feels like Bobby Wagner (LB) is heating up, he led the Seahawks in IDP production again this week with 13 combined tackles on 100% of snaps and is starting to look like the old Bobby Wagner again, let’s hope he can keep it up, he’s a weekly auto start regardless of what I say, you’d have to be nuts to ever sit the guy.

Bradley McDougald (S) has been the other outstanding producer on the Hawks this season and had another nice game with 5 solo tackles and 1 TFL on only 68% of snaps this week. He was questionable this week so I’m hoping that snap percentage has more to do with injury and less to do with his ability, regardless I will monitor the situation and update through this article.

Tedric Thompson (S) has emerged as another reliable IDP option for Seattle this season after replacing Earl Thomas (S). He had a serviceable week with 5 combined tackles on 100% of snaps and has been at this floor or above the majority of games this year.

Shaq Griffin (CB) has been a nice play in ideal matchups like this one and had 4 solo tackles and 1 PD on 100% of snaps, he’s not reliable enough to be a weekly start at corner but not many are to be honest, consider him if the matchup is correct like it was this week against a high powered offense that can throw the ball effectively. KJ Wright (LB), Frank Clark (DE) and Jarran Reed (DT) all had down weeks but have been consistent this season so I’m not worried it happens to everyone, they’ll be fine.

Rams: Of the many defensive stars on the Rams it’s tossup who will be the best producer each week, usually though Cory Littleton (LB) is up there as he was again this week with 8 combined tackles, 1 TFL and 1 PD on 100% of snaps, he remains the second best IDP linebacker in the league and a weekly auto start.

N’Damakong Suh (DT) was the overall production leader for the Rams this week with 9 combined tackles, 0.5 sacks and 0.5 TFL on 88% of snaps and remains a solid tier two producer and pretty much an auto start cause of weeks like this. Lamarcus Joyner (S) had a nice game with 7 combined tackles on 100% of snaps but has been too spotty for my liking.

Marc Barron (LB) had a nice game, it must not have been cold out, he recorded 6 combined tackles on 76% of snaps this week but remains too much of a question mark in regards to playing time and production for me to be interested in anything other than a spot start. John Johnson (S) had a decent game with 6 combined tackles on 100% of snaps played and has been a solid start of tier two safety all season.

Aaron Donald (DE) continues his monster year with 4 combined tackles, 2.5 sacks and 3.5 TFL on 81% of snaps. He’s a weekly auto start end of story. Micheal Brockers (DE) and Dante Fowler (DE) both had serviceable games with Brockers recording 3 solo tackles on 63% of snaps while Fowler had 4 combined tackles, 1 sack and 1 TFL on 72% of snaps this week. Both are solid spot starts or playable weekly in deeper leagues.

Dallas Cowboys @ Philadelphia Eagles

Cowboys: As soon as the inevitable Sean Lee (LB) injury happened a couple weeks back we all knew it was time for jokes about German shizor videos and Cartmans mom as well as an outstanding young linebacker getting the playing time he needs in the position that is most beneficial for him.

Leighton Vander Esch Mein Shizor (LB) had a ridiculous week with 13 solo tackles, 1 TFL, 1 PD and 1 INT on 100% of snaps and remains an awesome tier one producer while Lee is injured and out which should be at least a few more weeks, start him with confidence. Jeff Heath (S) was the surprising next best producer this week with 8 solo tackles on 100% of snaps but has been spotty all year so I’m all set thanks. DeMarcus Lawrence (DE) was next with 5 solo tackles and 1 TFL on 90% of snaps and has been awesome all season, he’s a weekly auto start no debate.

Jaylon Smith (LB) had a bit of a down game with 4 combined tackles, 0.5 TFL and 1 PD on 100% of snaps. He remains a tier one producer this was just a bad week, he’ll be fine. Tyrone Crawford (DE) had a solid game with 3 solo tackles, 1 sack and 1 TFL on 77% of snaps but is nothing more than a serious roll of the dice spot start.

Chidobe Awuzie (CB) and Byron Jones (CB, S) both had awful games but Philly in general didn’t complete a ton of passes this week, both should still be playable in games with better matchups against pass happy offenses. Randy Gregory (DE) had a serviceable game if you needed a spot start with 1 solo tackle, 1 sack and 1 TFL on 65% of snaps this week, a spot start is about all he’s good for though.

Eagles: I’ve been saying it for weeks now but Nigel Bradham (LB) keeps getting better and better and his snap percentage has spiked over the past month or so sending him to 100% of snaps for a few games in a row now. This week he had 10 combined tackles on 100% of snaps and he’s now solidly placed himself in the reliable tier two category of production.

Malcolm Jenkins (S) had himself a nice game as well with 7 combined tackles on 100% of snaps this week and remains a nice tier two option with a rock solid floor. Jordan Hicks (LB) also showed up this week with 7 combined tackles on 100% of snaps and has quietly been an end of tier one producer all season. Ronald Darby (CB) had a nice game but tore his ACL so no use talking him up further, get well soon we’re going to miss him he’s a great IDP corner.

The Eagles defensive line feasted in this game. Brandon Graham (DE) led the way with 5 combined tackles, 1.5 sacks and 1.5 TFL on 80% of snaps. Fletcher Cox (DT) had the worst game of the group with 3 combined tackles on 81% of snaps but will be fine. Micheal Bennet (DE) recorded 2 solo tackles, 2 sacks and 2 TFL on 72% of snaps while Chris Long (DE) had a serviceable game with 3 combined tackles, 0.5 sacks and 0.5 TFL on 67% of snaps this week. Of this group Cox is an auto start, Graham is a solid tier two option and Bennett has quietly been really good lately and is moving into the reliable tier two range.

New York Giants @ San Francisco 49ers

Embed from Getty Images

Giants: There are very few guys I’m interested in on the Giants for IDP purposes, the majority of these guys are inconsistent and unreliable. Landon Collins (S) is the opposite of both of those traits. This week he had 9 combined tackles on 100% of snaps and is one of the best IDP safeties in the NFL hands down.

Alec Ogletree (LB) is the other guy I care about, this week he had 7 combined tackles playing 100% of snaps and remains a solid tier two producer for me. Olivier Vernon (DE) started his season hot but has been horrible since then and was never really anything more than a spotty short term guy anyways so we can forget about him. No one else on this defense is worth my time or yours.

49ers: With both Jaquiski Tartt (S) and Ruben Foster (LB) injured and out this week a good portion of the 49ers IDP production was missing in action. Malcolm Smith (LB) led the way with 6 combined tackles, 1 TFL and 1 PD on 100% of snaps but will fade to irrelevance once Foster gets back so we can ignore this.

DeForest Buckner (DT) had a nice game with 5 combined tackles, 0.5 sacks, 0.5 TFL and 1 PD on 81% of snaps and remains a tier one auto start at defensive tackle. Fred Warner (LB) was set up for a massive game but only managed 4 combined tackles and 2 PD on 100% of snaps, our podcast this week got into why he actually does better with Foster on the field with him which seems counter intuitive but is accurate. Solomon Thomas (DE) played 51% of snaps this week but had no stats of any kind and remains a spotty short term defensive end if you play him at all.

Make sure you caught parts one, two and three from earlier in the week and keep an eye out for my IDP start or sit article dropping Sunday morning. My bad habit of going too far into detail means this article is in multiple parts instead of one novel.

The IDP Tipster Is Covering A Few Linebackers To Either Buy High Or Buy Low On For Winning Out The Rest Of The Season And Into The Fantasy Football Playoffs.


In this segment of “The IDP Tipster Live-Cast,” we hit five team’s inside linebackers who vary from buying high to buying low on with the matchups to win out the season heading into our playoffs. We rank them in pairs from first to fifth and mention just how strong those matchups coming up can mean going for the throat if a trade deal or waiver wire pick up can happen.

This hard-hitting segment’s topics also included…

The Washington Redskins Mason Foster and Zach Brown could be in the lead…

How the Colts rookie sensation Darius Lenard isn’t the only guy in Indy to consider…

Darren Lee for the New York Jets should hold more IDP production than he has…

Kiko Alonso isn’t the only option for IDP owners to make an offer on…

That Titans old man Wesley Woodyard offers up a bang as he closes out another solid season…

And of course, hitting on a few others as we go and then wrap it up by recapping in total who ranks by pairs from each team offering different levels of value to try to make a move.

All this while in collaboration with the IDP Guys, Nate, and Johny and where the mainstream media “takes” can’t touch the “No BullShit Content” coming at you as we guide IDP owners into winning with the defensive side of fantasy football.

So be sure to catch “The IDP Tipster Live-Cast” as I drop all the IDP knowledge I got to offer on periscope via Twitter.

And again on Sundays at 11:00 am eastern for start and sit questions in collaboration with “The IDP Tipster Live” producers and co-hosts Nate and Jon of the renowned and original IDP Guys Podcast controlling the behind the scene chaos.

The IDP Tipster has big plans to use his Live-Casts to render information as fast as he possibly can going forward on all the IDP developments we need to now. Thanks for joining him and sharing his love for the defensive side of the ball.

And as always feel free to locate me on Twitter @HBogart27 for anything IDP and follow-up questions on anything as well. Thanks for joining me on “The IDP Tipster Live-Cast”.

The IDP Tipster’s Week Eleven IDP “Easy” Start/Sit Charts And All 32 Team Defensive Lineman/Edge Rusher Coverage Via Live-Cast.


The IDP Guys are proud to be presenting The IDP Tipster’s second season of the tested and proven accurate “Easy Start/Sit” charts. His five-step approach was innovated out of necessity years ago and is now offered to the public for assisting in getting the right players in or out based on the matchups.

In addition to the data for the proven formula, The Tipster also adds his personal touch by staying on top of all that is IDP across the fantasy football landscape in completing the charts increasing the charts “hit” percentage.

The Tipster covers all 32 teams IDP positions in general categories while adding in a few Hard Starts and Soft Sits that stand out in the process of powering the charts. The innovated way to address the all too familiar questions of whom to play and who to sit goes beyond the traditional approach of offering just a handful of suggested players.

There will no longer be a need to scourer the media for “your guys” as the tested and proven formula is applied in an easy to read and a simple format while covering every IDP the NFL has to offer for fantasy football in one localized chart. Just sit back each week and follow the simple guidelines while The Tipster does all the work every week for you.

His five-step formula on all his charts is for the suggested opportunity or in some cases not suggested IDP production versus their current opponents. And after being tested over many seasons and proven with having a high percentage hit rate, The IDP Tipster is proud to power the following “No Bullshit Content” based “Easy Charts and Hard Starts with Soft Sits” to win now on via The IDP Guys.


Apologies!

First for not being able to get the DL/Edge Rusher charts out last week due to things not working out and for me not having time. I do believe it is the first time I have ever not been able to get them out in the couple of years I have been doing them. Still holding out hope that things level out here and I’m able to keep up at the level I’d like to be at and was able to maintain before recent events.

And unfortunately, I am unable to record an IDP Tipster Live-Cast covering every NFL team’s defensive lineman this week and try to get the charts out in a more timely manner. But not all is lost, be sure to tune in this Sunday when I and the IDPGuys Nate and Jon go Live to answer all those hair-splitting questions you may have that the charts just can’t define for us. In this case what would be better than a personal touch right before the games on Sunday. As we go via periscope on Twitter Live and break whatever you have on your mind down to win out as the fantasy football playoffs in most leagues are just around the corner.

Also be sure to check out my new Tipster Tips that in this case this week will be added to the charts. It will be in my Live-Casts when available and likely with a touch more detail going forward as long as things work out. But for this week I hope my “tips” can put an edge to your fantasy game that you’ll only get here with me and the IDPGuys site.


Defensive Lineman / Edge Rusher

Number one guideline to follow overall: ” Never Sit A Stud Over An Average Joe Or A Flier”.

Another guideline in “splitting the hairs” on possible equal results on two or more players: Would always advise cross-checking with snap counts for every down IDP players and their average time on the field. A suggested and easy to use resource for those snap counts: footballoutsiders.com.

Use this guideline for additional “splitting the hairs”: The IDP Tipster and/or IDP Guys rankings.

The last but maybe the most important guideline: Always remember that the “handicapping” in the chart(s) has been done for you. Don’t over think it. The Tipster has set it up with the defensive schemes already figured in, the matchups at hand, and any situation the designated IDP group may be going through.

If you are unsure of your player’s designated position at this time only the real NFL team depth charts can be trusted and are centrally located at nfl.com/teams page. Where the charts are based on each team’s base defensive package.

AFC

The AFC Defensive Lineman/Edge Rusher Tipster Tip: I realize what I’m about to suggest is going against the golden rule of thumb of never sitting a stud. But as you can see by the chart I am concern about the Chargers versus Broncos contest. Neither team is exactly allowing much at all in points to the DL/Edge position this season. And they have not fluctuated at all as the season has played out.

This is the first of the two division games they have against each other so there isn’t even any information to go on from a prior game this season. This is even wilder than just me throwing out the tip to approach this with caution. Over the last few seasons, both teams have been generous in letting DL/Edge players have their way. So the flipped situation is pretty muddy on paper.

And it is highly unlikely that Von Miller, Bradley Chubb, Melvin Ingram, and their fellow players don’t manage to make some sort of impact in this divisional rivalry. But which player(s) do you gamble on to do so? And even if Joey Bosa would manage to play this week do we trust his foot or that he is in “game shape”? He reportedly returned to practice the last I looked.

I think my best Tipster Tip here is to flat-out say that if you can afford to play another player based off what the charts may have as a solid player or above, that is not a Charger or Bronco, you might want to give it a go there. Perhaps Bengals DT Geno Atkins, who feasted the last time they played the Ravens. Perhaps even the NFC Tip I know I’ll be giving can help here.

I’m not suggesting to reach for a player based off the chart that has not shown something prior to this week. I’m only suggesting that I don’t think that all the “studs” involved in this contest will manage to make an impact and to consider if you feel lucky with the one you may have. I’ll add, on paper, I think this contest will end up being an aerial assault by both teams that could negate the DLs and possibly the LBs for the most part. It just seems like a shady situation to trust. Good luck with whatever you may decide.

NFC

The NFC Defensive Lineman/Edge Rusher Tipster Tip: Prior to last week in a Live-Cast, I mentioned that Tampa Bay defensive end Carl Nassib was creeping onto our radars. This past week he took another fly bye and I believe he is a firm blip now. Not only for this next contest versus the Giants, who have a terrible offensive line but in dynasty leagues as well. So much so that I took the flier on him last week in my personal 32 flagship league and added him as depth. The former brown has simply found new life in Tampa Bay and performing when some of the other “names” for the Buccaneers aren’t.

So as I mentioned above in the AFC Tipster Tip about the NFC tip I knew I was including, Nassib is an option this week. Especially versus the Giants. He isn’t a full-time player per say if Vinny Curry is active, but that’s not a real concern here. He’ll only need a decent portion of snaps to get at Eli Manning or cover the flat where Eli has repeatedly hit, Barkley.  This potential this week will double if Vinny Curry is out again or goes down. And as for dynasty, I’m holding him this offseason (deeper leagues) as his role just keeps expanding and the fact that there aren’t any other great options currently at defensive end for Tampa Bay going forward other than JPP.

Vinny Curry joined them this offseason at a bit of a hefty price tag that he hasn’t lived up to this season. the real interesting part s that the Buccaneers have an option “out” that they could let him walk next season. But however this plays out this offseason, they have shown they like Nassib on the field and for the rest of this season and likely next he is showing us all kinds of upside. Right now he is approaching a DL2 type, it may be his ceiling in 2019, but there is potential here for more.

 

There are always three Charts published, an LB, a DB, and Edge/DL. So if you’re looking at one and like to see the others you can go to The IDP Tipster Page on site and know that if they aren’t there yet, they will be soon.

I can not stress enough that if we have a stud we must play them unless we are splitting hairs between “known” studs. Be sure to always apply the guidelines and keep in mind that we have “Any Given Sunday” situations happening until the NFL hits its full stride.

Thank you for considering my personal charts as well as my players to either target or avoid. I look forward to publishing these throughout the season as part of my No Bullshit Content in an attempt to help us win now. It’s a tool, and we also know that sometimes tools aren’t as applicable in all situations, but I assure you, these charts work and will be especially convenient for all of us as the season rolls on.

Don’t Miss IT

I’ll include brief summaries below, but be sure to catch the “Tipster’s Tips” of the week in the end of the Live-Casts for the full details on just why I’m tipping my hand and adding those suggestions on players. Who knows where I go with them. At this time of the season, it could be related for next year dynasty outlooks, possibly in-week thoughts on start/sits, or just general ideas for the rest of this season. Whatever it may be, trust me when I say it’s all for the love of our IDPs and the will to want and win on the defensive side of the ball. I certainly feel the tips will be well worth your time.


Linebacker

Number one guideline to follow overall: ” Never Sit A Stud Over An Average Joe Or A Flier”.

Another guideline in “splitting the hairs” on possible equal results on two or more players: Would always advise cross-checking with snap counts for every down IDP players and their average time on the field. A suggested and easy to use resource for those snap counts: footballoutsiders.com.

Use this guideline for additional “splitting the hairs”: The IDP Tipster and/or IDP Guys rankings.

The last but maybe the most important guideline: Always remember that the “handicapping” in the chart(s) has been done for you. Don’t over think it. The Tipster has set it up with the defensive schemes already figured in, the matchups at hand, and any situation the designated IDP group may be going through.

If you are unsure of your player’s designated position at this time only the real NFL team depth charts can be trusted and are centrally located at nfl.com/teams page. Where the charts are based on each team’s base defensive package.

AFC

AFC Linebacker Live-Cast

Just give the link below a click and you’ll be on your way and catch all my thoughts on each AFC inside linebacker core. And be sure to come back and see what I got going on the AFC linebackers below.

Warning: Sorry for a bit of sloppiness to my Live-Cast(s) this week, my dreaded “crapnet” was in full force this week for some reason and they aren’t the prettiest I’ve ever done.

Don’t pay attention to the Falcon’s topic, it is the AFC LBs.

 

The AFC Linebacker Tipster Tip: Be sure to catch the end of the Live-Cast to hear why I’m throwing shade on Zach Cunningham this weekend with the rumor that both him and Dylan Coyle both may be active versus the Redskins.

Disregard that Falcon’s caption in the topic, part of that warning above.

NFC

NFC Linebacker Live-Cast

I’ve shortened the intros to these as I learn to fine-tune everything. Hope you all enjoy!

Warning: Sorry for a bit of sloppiness to my Live-Cast(s) this week, my dreaded “crapnet” was in full force this week for some reason and they aren’t the prettiest I’ve ever done.

The AFC Linebacker Tipster Tip: With Lavonte David in Tampa Bay dinged up and Adarious Taylor not quite getting the job done at a high level, see why if they have activated Kendell Beckwith I’m talking him up for at least the rest of the season.

Attention!

The source that informed me that Beckwith only had until this Wednesday (11/14) was incorrect and apparently corrected himself afterward. I’ve never had a problem here so never rechecked the original info I believed to be true.

Seen this mistake as I noticed this very recent post. So there is still time if he hasn’t been activated by the time you’ve read my article. You’ll understand my correction here after watching the Live-cast for the tip.

And now the Live-Cast for the NFC.

And as a bonus, I want to make sure you don’t miss out here on why Deion jones being activated doesn’t take out Foyesade Oluokun from my perspective for the rest of the season and beyond.


I hope the new approach with the Live-Cast(s) to cover the positions with more detail on all the NFL teams has worked out as well for you as it did for me doing them. Be sure to keep an eye out for them going forward. I plan on even more Live-Casts to get the content out short and sweet and in a timely manner.

There are always three Charts published, an LB, a DB, and Edge/DL. So if you’re looking at one and like to see the others you can go to The IDP Tipster Page on site and know that if they aren’t there yet, they will be soon.

But not all is lost, be sure to tune in this Sunday when I and the IDPGuys Nate and Jon go Live to answer all those hair-splitting questions you may have that the charts just can’t define for us.

AFC

The AFC Defensive Back Tipster Tip: We should seriously consider Chargers S/LB Adrian Phillips for the rest of the season. He had already garnered playing time as a middle linebacker in sub-packages as well as time as the weakside linebacker. That’s right, not only time as the weakside but the middle as well. With Denzel Perryman on I.R. and the state of the lack of trust that D.C. Gus Bradly seems to have in his linebackers, Adrian Phillips arrow is pointing way up. You can have a look for yourself in the link below, since Week 5 he has become a stable in the defense again this year. And in those five contest played since then, he has accumulated around 30 combined tackles. Especially over the last three weeks. As a player designated both as a defensive back as well as a Linebacker, this play could at the least provide double coverage in depth for a run at the playoffs.

Adrian Phillips snap counts.

Adrian Phillips IDP production.

NFC

The NFC Defensive Back Tipster Tip: This one is deep, and I mean deep, but really one I just want to get on our radars. Keep an eye on Packers newly signed safety Ibraheim Campbell. The Packers have gone to hell in a handbasket with the safeties. Campbell was just signed before the last contest but was inactive likely due to the short time period to get up to speed. Now with Kentrell Brice also hurting they may turn to Campbell sooner than they like to have. Not that I wasn’t going to mention him before Brice’s injury this past contest. This looked like an under the radar move to me last week anyhow. Campbell has experience under D.C. Mike Pettine from their days in Cleveland. Granted Campbells never quite cut it as an overall starting caliper type, just yet. But even if we aren’t or doesn’t, the Packers have a need and if he fills that need in the IDP world production by default counts. He isn’t terrible, he does hold skills in the box safety area and it can be said his short area coverage skills are a bit above average. Either way, if he sees the field this weekend he needs to be considered on the radar more than what I’m mentioning right now. Got an extra bench spot?

 

There are always three Charts published, an LB, a DB, and Edge/DL. So if you’re looking at one and like to see the others you can go to The IDP Tipster Page on site and know that if they aren’t there yet, they will be soon.

Taking a look at the NFL Week 10 from a IDP perspective; notes on what our writer @Orangeman3142 saw this weekend.


This is a continuation of our weekly article series that breaks down what we saw this week in IDP fantasy football. What happened and why, what we got right and what we got wrong and more importantly how to move forward and get better next week. We look at possible waivers and trends, snap counts and issues that affect production for your IDP team. Part three will cover the next four games of week Ten. Keep an eye out for part four and make sure you read parts one and two from earlier this week. Let’s get into it.

Arizona Cardinals @ Kansas City Chiefs

Cardinals: The Cardinals put up a decent fight in this game but Tyreek Hill (WR) and company were too much to handle when push came to shove. For Arizona’s IDP production it was Bene Benwikere (CB) leading the way with 8 combined tackles, he’s a no name and this is flash in the pan so I won’t waste either of our time with anything more on him.

Antoine Bethea (S) was next with 5 solo tackles on 100% of snaps this week, he’s been an end of tier one guy all season and had a serviceable game this week. Tre Boston (S) was back playing this week after injury but had a quiet game with just 4 combined tackles on 95% of snaps, this team was crushed by the big play and their offense played well enough that all these IDP studs didn’t get their normal amount of time on the field so in general the Cardinals IDP production this week was awful.

Patrick Peterson (CB) took advantage of a nice matchup with 4 solo tackles playing 100% of snaps, he’s a safe play against teams like this that pass a lot. Chandler Jones (DE) had a massive day with 3 solo tackles, 2 sacks and 2 TFL on 85% of snaps and continues to be a tier one option.

Robert Nkemdiche (DT) was injured and out and the other usual suspects, Baker, Bynes and Markus Golden (DE) all had sub par games in an ideal matchup which doesn’t make a ton of sense. They should all be fine though every team has at least one of these games a year, continue to start the “Killer B’s” with confidence.

Chiefs: Unfortunately Anthony Hitchens (LB) was listed as “active” this week but didn’t play a snap, that hurt a lot of people but allowed Reggie Ragland (LB) to have a nice game with 7 combined tackles playing only 53% of snaps this week. He’s been an OK spot start but with that kind of playing time you can’t rely on him weekly.

Kendall Fuller (CB) had yet another solid game with 5 combined tackles on 100% of snaps played and remains my favorite IDP corner by a long shot. Dee Ford (LB, EDGE) had a solid game due to sack production but plays a position I would never start unless it was for a specific EDGE or OLB slot so I’m not going to cover him, if you want to make that choice more power to you but I never start sack dependent players in linebacker slots.

Chris Jones (DE) had a nice game especially if you used him as a spot start for a bye week recording 3 combined tackles, 2 sacks, 1 TFL and 2 PD on 67% of snaps this week. He remains a nice short term option and has been good enough to start weekly in deeper leagues where more than two defensive ends are needed.

Daniel Sorensen (S) had a decent game with 6 combined tackles on only 44% of snaps but that playing time is far too low for consistency, Ron Parker (S) had 2 solo tackles, 1 sack and 1 TFL on 100% of snaps but hasn’t been more than an end of tier two spotty safety option this year, the only safety I’m interested in on the Chiefs hasn’t played yet this season (Eric Berry).

Buffalo Bills @ New York Jets

Bills: It was the guys you expect to see atop the Bills box score this week. Tremaine Edmunds (LB) led the way with 8 combined tackles on 95% of snaps and remains a mid tier one guy who’s an auto start for me. He is as promised. Jordan Poyer (S) got out of his slump and had 6 combined tackles, 1 sack and 1 TFL on 96% of snaps this week helping him to climb out of that tier two hole he’s been in most of this year, he’s capable of this every week let’s hope we start seeing it.

Matt Milano (LB) has been spotty this year but can definitely put up some solid weeks, this was one of them with 6 combined tackles, 1 PD and 1 INT on 79% of snaps this week. It’s a little worrying seeing him drop back to 79% of snaps after being at 100% the past few so I’ll keep an eye on it, he’s still best used as a dynasty project or linebacker two or three in deeper leagues.

Jerry Hughes (DE) had a nice week with 4 combined tackles, 1 sack, 2.5 TFL and 1 PD on 68% of snaps and remains a nice spot start or playable weekly in deeper leagues. With Trent Murphy (DE) injured and out this week Shaq Lawson (DE) got another shot at solid playing time and took advantage with 3 combined tackles, 1 sack, 1 TFL and 1 PD on 73% of snaps this week.

He’s a nice option if Murphy continues to be inactive due to injury, Lawson is probably available on the majority of waiver wires so have a look at Murphys status later this week and if it doesn’t look good feel free to pull the trigger on Lawson if you need defensive end help this week.

Jets: Since week two Avery Williamson (LB) has been on fire, he went off again this week with 11 combined tackles and 1 TFL on 100% of snaps this week and remains a locked in tier one stud. Darron Lee (LB) his inside linebacker counterpart also went nuts with 11 combined tackles as well playing on 100% of snaps as well. Lee has been more spotty overall but is playable weekly as a great linebacker three or spotty linebacker two in deeper leagues.

Marcus Maye (S) had a little better week this week with 5 combined tackles and 1 PD on 100% of snaps and is a nice spot start or short term option for safety help, he had unbelievable numbers earlier in the year but has come back to earth, this is more of what I would expect from him weekly with as many talented mouths to feed around him as there are.

Jamal Adams (S) had a serviceable game with 4 combined tackles, 0.5 sacks, 1 TFL and 1 PD on 100% of snaps, this was a “down week” for the awesome producer and was still pretty solid. He’s been great all year.

Leonard Williams (DE) had only 2 combined tackles on 71% of snaps and has been nothing more than a spotty spot start and we’re rapidly closing in on the end of bye weeks and besides injuries not needing to have to think about this guy anymore unless you are truly desperate for defensive end help.

Skins: It was another week of monster production for Mason Foster (LB) the now leader of the Skins IDP production without any challengers. Well maybe Ha Ha Clinton Dix (S), who had 8 solo tackles and 1 PD on 100% of snaps and is back to being a tier one guy on his new team. Foster though is a monster, and had 10 combined tackles this week playing 100% of snaps.

He’s been a quiet tier one guy this season and has thoroughly replaced and supplanted Zach Brown (LB) who had a rare good week for this season with 9 combined tackles and 2 TFL playing only 75% of snaps. That’s really been the problem this year, he hasn’t had the playing time to produce like he did last season and years past, and as far as I can remember this is only his second or third really good game this season. This was a top five linebacker for IDP purposes for YEARS before this season, it really sucks how far he’s fallen.

Ryan Kerrigan (LB, EDGE) stunk up the joint with only 2 combined tackles on 64% of snaps, I really hope no one threw him into a linebacker slot this week hoping for sack-dependent production cause this is what happens the majority of the time. The other unsettling stat line from the Skins this week was from DJ Swearinger (S) who had only 2 combined tackles and 2 PD on 100% of snaps this week, the acquisition of Clinton-Dix seems to have put a nail in the coffin of Swearingers production as he has been terrible since the trade while Dix is producing better than he did all year previously on the Packers, it may be time to move on from Swearinger before fantasy playoffs where a performance like this could spell the end for your title hopes.

Bucs: While most of us in the IDP community thought the clear winner, if there is such a thing, from the Kwon Alexander (LB) injury would be LaVonte David (LB) it seems to me that it’s been Justin Evans (S) so far who has been on a tear since the defense has been called upon to step it up in Alexanders absence.

Evans had 9 combined tackles on 84% of snaps this week making it seven out of eight games this year he’s recorded a tier one performance and four monster games in a row more recently. David was solid as well recording 7 solo tackles on 90% of snaps but let’s be real here unless you have a roster touched by God he’s an auto start for you every week so not much I’ll say either way is going to change that, nor should it.

Adarius Taylor (LB), who has been Alexanders direct replacement, has been up and down since taking over the job. He had 4 combined tackles and 2 TFL on 64% of snaps this week. He’t not getting the playing time Alexander got, he’s not as good as Kwon was and it’s only a matter of time before Kendal Beckwith (LB) takes over that job, so for me personally I’m looking at the Chargers linebackers situation and making a move there while I wait for Beckwith to play then I’ll start him, he did pretty decent in relief of Alexander last season from what I remember.

Jordan Whitehead (S) had 4 combined tackles this week playing only 57% of snaps so as much as the IDP community wanted him to be a thing it doesn’t look like it will happen with the playing time I’ve seen him get since he got his shot.

Jason Pierre Paul (DE) had a stinker but has been on fire the past month or so he was bound to come back to earth and he’ll be fine. Gerald McCoy (DT) had a serviceable game with 1 solo tackle and 1 sack on 74% of snaps, he remains a decent tier two defensive tackle option.

Brent Grimes (CB) has been pretty good lately and had an OK game with 3 solo tackles on 98% of snaps in a totally NOT ideal matchup at all. He’ll be a much better option against teams that can pass the ball, which is definitely NOT the Skins.

Chargers: The biggest news from the Chargers IDP this week was obviously the news that Denzel Perryman (LB) got injured and is out for the season. The immediate winners from this are Jatavis Brown (LB), who had 11 combined tackles playing 97% of snaps this week and was a good option after Kyzir White (S, LB) went onto IR but is now an even better option with the loss of Perryman, I’ve picked him up myself in a couple of my all IDP leagues.

Hayes Pullard (LB), who had 3 solo tackles and 1 TFL on only 25% of snaps this week may be in for a massive increase in snaps as well with the injury, he may be worth an add in case that happens. Adrian Phillips (S) has been really solid since White went down and should probably see an increase in production as well, he recorded 9 combined tackles and 1 PD on 75% of snaps this week., he could see an increase in playing time as well.

Derwin James (S) has been a solid tier one guy all season and had another solid week with 9 combined tackles and 1 PD playing 100% of snaps and is a weekly auto start end of story. Jahleel Addae (S) recorded 6 combined tackles playing 100% of snaps and has been part of the three safety set the Chargers have been using a lot recently and we’ll probably see more of with the Perryman injury as well.

Melvin Ingram (DE) is solid gold against the Raiders and had 4 combined tackles and 1 sack on 87% of snaps on top of the other great performance he had against them earlier in the season, his value has been good but will skyrocket when Joey Bosa (DE) returns and opposing offensive lines have someone besides him to worry about.

Raiders: There’s only one guy I care about on the Raiders, Tahir Whitehead (LB). He had 7 combined tackles on 100% of snaps and has been a mid tier two guy all season and is the only rosterable player on the Raiders defense this season, or at least the only guy with any kind of consistency or reliability.

Maurice Hurst (DT) is a nice futures option and had 4 solo tackles, 1 sack and 1 TFL on 70% of snaps. He’s had flashes of what he may be capable of in the future but just isn’t there yet. That’s it for the Raiders, I avoid them like the plague.

As we enter the playoff stretch, here are some IDP rookies that can help you make the playoffs and win a fantasy championship.


Jaire Alexander

The Green Bay Packers rookie cornerback has been incredible of late. Over his last four games, Alexander has 17 tackles and eight passes defended, including five tackles and two passes defended against the Miami Dolphins in week 10. On the season, Alexander 35 tackles, 0.5 sacks, one interception, and nine passes defended. PFF has given him the top rookie cornerback grade as well.

Alexander’s numbers of late are been worthy of starts in combined defensive back leagues, let alone in leagues that require cornerbacks. Alexander should be a starter in cornerback leagues and should be rostered in all IDP leagues.

Josh Jackson

Alexander’s rookie teammate, cornerback Josh Jones, also had a great game against the Dolphins. With fellow cornerback Kevin King nursing a hamstring injury and Kentrell Brice leaving the game with an ankle injury, Jackson saw 100% of the snaps. He accumulated seven tackles, his career high.

With King‘s and Brice’s health still in question, Jackson should continue to see high snap counts going forward. If this is the case, he is a good fill-in in cornerback leagues. Jackson will be targeted often playing alongside Alexander, who has turned himself into a very respectable cornerback.

Maurice Hurst

I recently wrote about the Oakland Raiders rookie defensive tackle. Hurst has been the Raiders best rookie and best pass rusher this season. Against the Los Angeles Chargers in week 10, Hurst tallied four tackles and one sack. On the season, Hurst has 21 tackles, three sacks, one forced fumble, and three passes defended.

The Raiders defense is bad, but Hurst has been the one bright spot. While he has not been overly productive, Hurst has shown flashes. Hurst should only be rostered in dynasty leagues that require defensive tackles. If you are stashing him, hold him and wait for him to explode in the coming seasons.

Foye Oluokun

Atlanta Falcons rookie linebacker Foye Oluokun has led Falcons linebackers in snap share in each of the last two weeks. He has played in over 50% of the snaps in the last five games. Against the Cleveland Browns in week 10, Oluokun played in 85% of the Falcons defensive snaps, his highest to date. Unfortunately, that only led to three tackles.

The four previous games to week 10, however, Oluokun had five or more tackles in each. So, while week 10 was disappointing, the fact that Oluokun saw 85% of the defensive snaps is encouraging. Oluokun is startable in all formats if he continues to see a high snap share.

Donte Jackson

This is apparently the rookie cornerback article. Carolina Panthers rookie cornerback Donte Jackson is having a quietly great season. Against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday night, Jackson accrued four tackles and two tackles for loss. On the season, Jackson has 41 tackles, one sack, two tackles for loss, one forced fumble, four interceptions, and seven passes defended.

Like Alexander, Jackson is startable in all leagues that require cornerbacks. He is even startable as a defensive back if needed in all leagues. Jackson could be a sneaky pickup that can help you win championships.

Be sure to continue to follow this column and get a jump on up and coming rookies that can help you win your leagues.
