Here are the juicy IDP nuggets for week 10 to quench your IDP hunger! Don’t go hungry with this all you can eat buffet!
CB, JC Jackson, New England Patriots
My 1st IDP nugget is a third-year cornerback from Maryland. He is leading the NFL with five interceptions on the season. Jackson has registered an interception in four consecutive games. This is the second straight season that he has recorded five interceptions and ten PBU’s. He’s been a solid option at cornerback for fantasy managers and can be picked up off the waiver wire in most leagues.
ILB, Blake Martinez, New York Giants
My next IDP nugget is Blake Martinez, who is averaging just a tick over ten tackles per game and is currently leading the NFL with 92 tackles. In each of the last three seasons, Martinez has recorded at least 144 tackles. He has finished in the top two in that category each season, and led the league in 2017. This year he’s on pace to record a personal best 163, which would beat his old mark by eight tackles.
ILB, Vince Williams, Pittsburgh Steelers
We continue the IDP nuggets with Vince Williams, who is having a resurgence for the Steelers. He is leading the NFL in tackle for losses with 14, three more than his previous career-best of eleven that he set in 2017. Williams has recorded five games with at least two TFLs or more through eight games played and is currently on pace for 28 on the season.
CB, Marlon Humphrey, Baltimore Ravens
It’s very uncommon to see a cornerback lead the league in forced fumbles, but Humprey has been playing at an elite level and doing just that. Through seven games played he has four forced fumbles and three over the last four games. Not only is the four forced fumbles a career-best, but the 2.5 sacks that he’s registered on the season is also.
FS, Jessie Bates, Cincinnati Bengals
The next IDP nugget is as good as Bates has been during his first two seasons in the NFL, he’s been phenomenal in year three. He currently ranks 5th in the league with ten PBUs on the season, but that number is already his career-best. At his current pace, he’s on track for twenty and is also on track for a personal best in tackles (114) and solos tackles (74).
DE, Brandon Graham, Philadelphia Eagles
In year eleven of a great career, Graham is having his best season to date. At his current pace (.875 per game), he is set to shatter his previous personal best of 9.5, which he set in 2017. Graham is also on pace to best his career-best for TFLs this season with 18. Like a fine wine, he’s getting better with age!
Team, Buffalo Bills
The IDP nuggets are plentiful in Buffalo as they are one of the friendliest stat crews around the league. For fantasy managers that is huge. They currently have three players ranked in the top 20 in solos tackles which score more points in fantasy. Safety Jordan Poyer (60) ranks 2nd, linebacker Tremaine Edmunds (43) and cornerback Taron Johnson (43), is tied for 20th.
DE, Emmanuel Ogbah, Miami Dolphins
If you’re in a league that scores sacks heavily and are looking for a cheap option, then look no further than Emmanuel Ogbah. Over the last five games, he has tallied six sacks and has at least ½ a sack in every game this season, except the season opener. Halfway through this season, he’s already passed his personal best mark (7.5 this year) for sacks of 5.5 set in 2016 & 2019!
DE, Trey Hendrickson, New Orleans Saints
The fourth-year pro from Florida Atlantic has been a pleasant surprise for the Saints defensive line. Hendrickson has registered 7.5 sacks through eight games played this season and has at least one sack in six of those games. He’s been everything that they had hoped Marcus Davenport would be. Hendrickson is averaging over two QB pressures per game and that is a great indicator of his potential sack production.
CB, Malcolm Butler, Tennessee Titans
When it comes to fantasy football we all know that the cornerback position is viewed and played unlike any other! The trend is bad cornerbacks get picked on more and produce better fantasy numbers. Butler is having a career year stat-wise and is on pace to shatter all his numbers across the board. If you need help at the cornerback position, this is a player you must add from my list of IDP nuggets.
