    Marshon Lattimore delivered in a great matchup early in Week 13.


    The Week 14 edition of The Cornerback Corner is here! @Orangeman3142 dives into all of the secondary matchups for every game to solidify your #IDP #FFIDP lineups!


    Welcome to Johny the Greek’s Cornerback Corner Week 14. Last week we streamed corner and did it well. I recommended over 60 different corner streams from 14 different Week 13 matchups. The majority of them worked out extremely well.

    We sit at 73% accuracy for the season, 72% last week based on those calls matching or beating their projections (Yahoo), and will continue to track accuracy all season long just like last year. Transparency is something we take seriously here at IDPGuys.


    Last week I made 68 recommendations. Of those 68, 9 were declared inactive or injured during play, 43 were correct (met or exceeded projection) and 16 were incorrect (below projection).

    We don’t count acts of God here (injuries) and I specifically ask people to check for inactives before each game. So, discounting those, I was 72% correct last week and have a 73% accuracy rating for the season overall.

    Of those 43 correct calls last week, 19 were “massive hits” (doubled or tripled projection). That is a 44% massive hit rate.

    Weekly Accuracy:

    1. 75% Week 1 Massive Hit: 25%
    2. 64% Week 2 Massive Hit: 35%
    3. 67% Week 3 Massive Hit: 34%
    4. 77% Week 4 Massive Hit: 37%
    5. 77% Week 5 Massive Hit: 40%
    6. 71% Week 6 Massive Hit: 40%
    7. 73% Week 7 Massive Hit: 41%
    8. 72% Week 8 Massive Hit: 33%
    9. 69% Week 9 Massive Hit 33%
    10. 82% Week 10 Massive Hit 35%
    11. 79% Week 11 Massive Hit 38%
    12. 76% Week 12 Massive Hit 35%
    13. 72% Week 13 Massive Hit 44%

    Season accuracy to date: 73%

    Season massive hit rate to date: 36%

    Enough of the past, let’s look at Week 14!

    Perfect Stream: This is one of the best matchups this week. I will be streaming from these matchups in my own leagues almost exclusively.

     

     

     

    Poop stream: This is one of the worst matchups this week. I will very likely have zero corners from this matchup streaming anywhere.

    Ravens @ Browns

     

    Outlook: We just saw this game a couple of weeks back and it was mostly poop. The only difference this go-around is we are now without Marlon Humphrey (CB) and it’s outside in Cleveland instead of outside in Baltimore, it’s still winter. Pass on everything except the obvious guys in deeper leagues only.

    Baltimore Ravens

    Anthony Averett: Solid (Deeper leagues)

    Jimmy Smith: Avoid (May be an option going forward, we need to see it first though)

    Tavon Young: Avoid

    Cleveland Browns

    Denzel Ward: Solid (Deeper leagues)

    Greg Newsome: Avoid

    Troy Hill: Avoid

    Greedy Williams: Avoid

    Jaguars @ Titans

    Outlook: There could be some value here for a couple of the Jags corners, especially if the always mediocre Shaquill Griffin is inactive again this week, as for the reverse though when your team’s best passing weapon is Laquon Treadwell (WR) things are not going well. We should skip the Titans options this week unless truly desperate.

    Jacksonville Jaguars

    Nevin Lawson: Solid (Deeper leagues unless Griffin inactive)

    Tyson Campbell: Solid (Deeper leagues unless Griffin inactive)

    Shaquill Griffin: Solid (Deeper leagues only, if healthy)

    Tennessee Titans

    Kristian Fulton: Avoid

    Janoris Jenkins: Avoid

    Elijah Molden: Avoid

    Raiders @ Chiefs

     

    Outlook: The first iteration of this game earlier this season brought us points aplenty and this one should as well, a great stream for our Raiders options and decent enough for the one or two Chiefs options we have in much deeper leagues.

    Las Vegas Raiders

    Nate Hobbs: Solid

    Brandon Facyson: Solid (Deeper leagues)

    Casey Hayward: Solid (Deeper leagues)

    Kansas City Chiefs

    L’Jarius Sneed (CB/S): Solid

    Charvarius Ward: Solid (Deeper leagues)

    All others: Avoid

    Saints @ Jets

     

    Outlook: Just like the meme says. Not great, mediocre. Obvious guys only, deeper leagues only. Two shitty pass offenses outdoors in December, not ideal at all.

    New Orleans Saints

    Marshon Lattimore: Solid (Deeper leagues)

    P.J. Williams: Avoid

    Paulson Adebo: Avoid

    New York Jets

    Bryce Hall: Solid (Deeper leagues)

    Javelin Guidry: Avoid

    Michael Carter: Avoid

    Cowboys @ Football Team

    Outlook: We can start our Washington options against the usually solid Cowboys passing attack and as for the reverse we never sit Trevon Diggs (CB) but I could see value for Lewis and Brown in deeper leagues as well since this could end up being a shootout rather than a defensive struggle.

    Vegas seems to think so anyways with an initial over/under of 47.5 for an outdoor matchup in December that’s a decent amount of points. The usual suspects, a couple will be good across all formats and the rest in deeper leagues only.

    Dallas Cowboys

    Trevon Diggs: Solid

    Anthony Brown: Solid (Deeper leagues)

    Jourdan Lewis: Solid (Deeper leagues)

    Washington Football Team

    Kendall Fuller: Solid

    William Jackson: Solid (Deeper leagues)

    Bobby McCain: Solid (Deeper leagues)

    Falcons @ Panthers

    Outlook: We’ve already seen this one earlier this season and there was a decent amount of offense involved, these two division opponents are familiar with each other and neither defense is all that great. We can fire up the normal options but no one really sticks out as a perfect stream here.

    Atlanta Falcons

    AJ Terrell: Solid

    Fabian Moreau: Solid (Deeper leagues)

    No significant third corner option

    Carolina Panthers

    Donte Jackson: Avoid (IR)

    Stephon Gilmore: Solid (Risky though, I’m just guessing he gets the lion’s share of snaps now based on what I’ve seen all season)

    C.J. Henderson: Avoid

    A.J. Bouye: Solid (Deeper leagues)

    Seahawks @ Texans

    Outlook: The Texans’ options should be good against a Seahawks offense that played much better last week and with the Texans losing the time of possession battle handily most weeks we’ll roll with “the best ability is availability” as a rule this week.

    As for the reverse, odds are good we’re getting Davis Mills (QB) at QB this week so I’d avoid my Seattle options beyond DJ Reed (CB) in deeper leagues and Quandre Diggs (CB/S) in places where he’s designated a corner, leave the rest.

    Seattle Seahawks

    D.J. Reed: Solid (Deeper leagues)

    Quandre Diggs: Solid

    Sidney Jones: Avoid

    Ryan Neal (S/CB): Solid (If designated CB in your league of merit)

    Houston Texans

    Desmond King: Solid

    Terrance Mitchell: Solid

    Tavierre Thomas: Solid (Deeper leagues)

    Lions @ Broncos

    Outlook: Neither passing attack is good at all but then again neither defense is special either, we may need to be more dependent on splash plays for production here but there could be some fireworks and mistakes to be taken advantage of. We’ll go with the normal options but deeper leagues only.

    Detroit Lions

    Amani Oruwariye: Solid (Deeper leagues)

    Jerry Jacobs: Avoid

    All others: Avoid

    Denver Broncos

    Ronald Darby: Avoid

    Patrick Surtain: Solid (Deeper leagues, risky, splash play dependent)

    Kyle Fuller: Solid (Deeper leagues, risky play)

    Giants @ Chargers

    Outlook: This is a terrific matchup for our Giants’ options against this really solid Chargers passing attack, the icing on the cake would be if Keenan Allen (WR) cleared Covid protocol in time for kickoff and we got Adoree Jackson (CB) back as well.

    Beyond that, it’s still a go for our normal Giants options and we can skip the Chargers’ already mediocre options against this absolutely awful Giants pass game.

    New York Giants

    James Bradberry: Solid

    Adoree Jackson: Solid (If healthy)

    Aaron Robinson: Solid (Only if Adoree Jackson is inactive, otherwise avoid/sit)

    Logan Ryan (CB/S): Solid

    All others: Avoid

    Los Angeles Chargers

    Chris Harris: Avoid (Covid IR)

    Asante Samuel Jr: Avoid

    Michael Davis: Avoid

    Tevaughn Campbell: Avoid

    Embed from Getty Images

    Niners @ Bengals

    Outlook: This one somewhat depends on if we can get Deebo Samuel (WR) back in time for kickoff but regardless it’s a nice matchup for the Niners options and even if we do get Deebo back still just lukewarm for our Bengals options, one half of a good matchup overall.

    San Francisco 49ers

    Josh Norman: Solid

    K’Waun Williams: Solid (If Emmanuel Moseley is inactive, otherwise avoid/sit)

    Emmanuel Moseley: Solid (If healthy)

    All others: Avoid

    Cincinnati Bengals

    Chidobe Awuzie: Solid (Deeper leagues, if healthy)

    Mike Hilton: Solid (Deeper leagues only, gets a bump if Awuzie can’t play)

    Eli Apple: Avoid

    Vernon Hargreaves: Avoid

    Bills @ Bucs

     

    Outlook: This is the stream from the outer worlds, it is blessed by the maker. This stream will lead to a holy war against the Harkonens and the emperor. Perfect stream, fire up everyone.

    Buffalo Bills

    Taron Johnson: Solid

    Levi Wallace: Solid (Deeper leagues)

    Dane Jackson: Solid

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers

    Carlton Davis: Solid

    Sean Murphy Bunting: Solid

    Jamel Dean: Solid (Deeper leagues)

    Bears @ Packers

    Outlook: This is a really nice stream for our couple acceptable Bears options but as for the reverse I’m probably all set with any Packers options this week against the pretty terrible Bears passing attack. One half of a good matchup once more.

    Chicago Bears

    Jaylon Johnson: Solid

    Artie Burns: Solid (Risky though, fluctuation in second CB role recently)

    All others: Avoid

    Green Bay Packers

    Rasul Douglas: Avoid

    Chandon Sullivan: Avoid

    Eric Stokes: Avoid

    Embed from Getty Images

    Rams @ Cardinals

     

    Outlook: This stream has had visions of the struggle that is to come. Will we take a maker hook of our Siche and ride like a leader of men? Shai’Halud demands our respect. We shall give it. Perfect stream. Fire up everyone with a pulse here.

    Los Angeles Rams

    Darious Williams: Solid

    Jalen Ramsey: Solid

    Donte Deayton: Solid (Deeper leagues)

    Arizona Cardinals

    Marco Wilson: Solid (Deeper leagues)

    Byron Murphy: Solid

    Robert Alford: Solid (Deeper leagues)

    Johny The Greek

    Non-delusional Cowboys Fan. Been playing Fantasy since 2003, IDP since 2004 and watching football for 34 years. Being a firm believer in "you should know if the person you're taking advice from actually knows or wins anything" I'd like to present exhibit A: I have a diamond rating in Yahoo (965) with 26 plus titles in redraft/dynasty across Yahoo, Sleeper, Fantrax and MFL and an additional 50 plus 2nd/3rd place in redraft/dynasty, same platforms. I also play in and have won several all-IDP leagues. I started playing FanDuel with a free entry and have won almost a grand since. I've also won many leagues on the draft app (RIP Draft App, we miss you) and play the maximum number of free college fantasy leagues on Yahoo every year as well with 3 titles and 9 trophies in just two years of playing before Yahoo discontinued those leagues. My profile includes multiple titles in survivor and pick em leagues as well. I was a finalist in the 2021/22 IDP Guys Invitational and the best ball tournament. Also a MFL & Sleeper best ball & eliminator degenerate with many titles there as well. I just started playing All-22 this season and I would bet the mortgage I'll be good at that too. What does all that mean? Nothing except when I do something I tend to overdo it. I have been at this for a long time though so I'll help you with your IDP roster and questions however I can whenever I can. I write a weekly streaming IDP corners article (Johny The Greek's Cornerbacks Corner) and whatever I feel like in the offseason. You can find me @OrangeMan3142 on Twitter. Feel free to reach out for any questions or just to talk some football. Check out my articles on Friday mornings all season long. And new this season and going forward stick around for "Johny The Greek's Free Real Estate" where I interview the best and brightest from FF Twitter, and by that I mean the interesting people who actually help you win and not the useless engagement farmers. Also check out the "Cats of FF Twitter" article series coming out right before the season starts, this article series will talk about each cat and cat owner in the Cats of FF Twitter League that was formed this offseason with deep dives into cat society, behavior and psychology with a sprinkling of fantasy football too I guess. I am not an "analyst" I'm just a crazy person/degenerate who has been doing this a long time, has been pretty good at it and is dialed in because I have to be to not sound like an idiot writing all these articles and doing all these shows. My style is straightforward & conversational, IDP isn't complicated and you're not trying to win an argument on Twitter you're trying to win your league. Come join me weekly in season for Johny the Greek's Cornerbacks Corner, where we look at the fine art that is streaming corners or finding ways to maximize your production from your CB slots each week. I hope you enjoyed the article. Let us praise our Messiah Babu Frik and give worship to Baby Yoda. Jimmy G would make a fine husband. Thanks for reading. -Johny the Greek-
