AJ Terrell put up a monster game in far less than ideal circumstances

The Week 12 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 12. Last week we streamed corner and did it well. I recommended over 60 different corner streams from 15 different Week 11 matchups. The majority of them worked out extremely well.

We sit at 73% accuracy for the season, 79% 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 63 recommendations. Of those 63, 10 were declared inactive or injured during play, 42 were correct (met or exceeded projection) and 11 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 79% correct last week for a 73% accuracy rating for the season overall.

Of those 42 correct calls last week, 16 were “massive hits” (doubled or tripled projection). That is a 38% 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%

Season accuracy to date: 73%

Season massive hit rate to date: 36%

Enough of the past, let's look at Week 12!

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.




Cornerback Corner Week 12

Steelers @ Bengals

Outlook: This could be a defensive struggle or we could get some fireworks, depends how much the injury grim reaper shreds the Steelers defense this week and whether or not we get last week's edition of Big Ben or the usually crappy version, if I were a betting man I'd lean more towards a defensive struggle. Obvious guys only, deeper leagues if possible. Leave the rest.

Pittsburgh Steelers

Joe Haden (CB) Solid (If healthy)

Cameron Sutton (CB) Solid (Deeper leagues)

James Pierre (CB) Solid (Deeper leagues, only if Haden inactive, otherwise sit)

Arthur Maulet (CB) Avoid

Cincinnati Bengals

Chidobe Awuzie (CB) Solid

Eli Apple (CB) Solid (Deeper leagues)

Mike Hilton (CB) Solid (Deeper leagues)

Bucs @ Colts


Outlook: The voice from the outer worlds has blessed this matchup, Shai' Halud will bestow his water of life upon the recently red hot Colts and the always capable of excellent passing Bucs this week. Take the maker hook of your sietch and ride like a leader of man. Fire up everyone. (Everyone that makes sense that is)

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Jamel Dean (CB) Solid

Sean Murphy Bunting (CB) Solid

No significant third corner option

Indianapolis Colts

Kenny Moore (CB) Ideal/Solid

Xavier Rhodes (CB) Solid

Rock Ya Sin (CB) Solid (Deeper leagues)

Panthers @ Dolphins


Outlook: Mediocre. Obvious guys only, deeper leagues only if possible. This doesn't feel like an offensive explosion but I'm sure there will be some production here, with many other better places to stream from this week why screw around with this one though?

Carolina Panthers

Donte Jackson (CB) Solid

Stephon Gilmore (CB) Solid (Deeper leagues)

AJ Bouye (CB) Solid (Deeper leagues)

Keith Taylor (CB) Avoid

Miami Dolphins

Xavien Howard (CB) Solid

Byron Jones (CB) Solid (Deeper leagues)

No trustworthy third corner option

Titans @ Patriots


Outlook: Also very mediocre, feels like a serious defensive struggle here. Only the obvious guys and deeper leagues only, could be another JC Jackson (CB) interception game though once the Pats force the Titans into a negative gamescript and Tannehill is forced to abandon the run game.

Tennessee Titans

Kristian Fulton (CB) Solid (Deeper leagues)

Janoris Jenkins (CB) Solid (Deeper leagues)

Chris Jackson (CB) Avoid (Playing time)

Elijah Molden (CB) Avoid (Playing time)

New England Patriots

JC Jackson (CB) Solid

Jalen Mills (CB) Solid (Deeper leagues)

Myles Bryant (CB) Avoid

Eagles @ Giants


Outlook: More of the same, mediocre, uninspired, less than ideal. We can't even really lean on our excellent Giants options with the Eagles running the ball (not even kidding) 50 times last week and a metric shitload in recent history. Obvious guys only, deeper leagues if possible.

Philadelphia Eagles

Steven Nelson (CB) Solid (Deeper leagues)

Darius Slay (CB) Solid (Deeper leagues)

Avonte Maddox (CB) Solid (Deeper leagues)

New York Giants

James Bradberry (CB) Solid (Deeper leagues)

Logan Ryan (CB/S) Solid

Adoree Jackson (CB) Solid (Deeper leagues)

Darnay Holmes (CB) Avoid

Falcons @ Jaguars

Outlook: This could be a bit of a surprise offensive fireworks show since both defenses are hot garbage, we can fire up the good options here in medium to deeper leagues and probably get what we need out of them in most places. Not bad but also not perfect either, better than mediocre though.

Atlanta Falcons

Fabian Moreau (CB) Solid (Deeper leagues)

AJ Terrell (CB) Solid

No significant third CB option

Jacksonville Jaguars

Tyson Campbell (CB) Solid

Shaq Griffin (CB) Solid (Deeper leagues)

Nevin Lawson (CB) Avoid

Jets @ Texans

Outlook: This also has an opportunity, much like the Falcons and Jags, to give us a ton of points simply because neither defense is any good at all. We'll start the usual suspects and see what happens.

New York Jets

Bryce Hall (CB) Solid (Deeper leagues)

Isaiah Dunn (CB) Solid (Deeper leagues, risky, we've only seen it once)

Michael Carter (CB) Solid (Deeper leagues)

Houston Texans

Desmond King (CB) Solid (Deeper leagues)

Terrence Mitchell (CB) Solid (Deeper leagues)

Tavierre Thomas (CB) Solid (Deeper leagues)

Chargers @ Broncos

Outlook: We can fire up our Broncos options with extreme confidence this week against that excellent Chargers passing attack and offense overall, as for the reverse we'll likely be skipping our Chargers options this week with Bridgewater and company in the building. The Broncos haven't had a passing attack since Peyton Manning (QB) was part of this team unfortunately.

Los Angeles Chargers

Michael Davis (CB) Avoid

Chris Harris Jr (CB) Avoid

Asante Samuel Jr (CB) Avoid

Denver Broncos

Patrick Surtain (CB) Solid

Ronald Darby (CB) Solid

Kyle Fuller (CB) Solid (Deeper leagues only, risky)

Rams @ Packers


Outlook: This matchup will kill until no Harkonen breathes Arakeen air, long live the fighters! Perfect stream, Aaron Rodgers (QB) toe could throw a monkey wrench in this but I think he sucks it up and plays and we know Davante Adams (WR) and company are going to be showered with targets as the Packers try and keep up with a pissed off Rams team coming off some embarrassing losses recently.

Los Angeles Rams

Jalen Ramsey (CB) Solid

Darious Williams (CB) Solid

No significant third CB option

Green Bay Packers

Eric Stokes (CB) Solid

Rasul Douglas (CB) Solid (Deeper leagues)

Chandon Sullivan (CB) Solid (Deeper leagues)

Vikings @ 49ers


Outlook: This actually could end up being a decent shootout, however the possibility of a defensive struggle is present enough for me to call this what it really is, OK not great. Start the obvious guys, deeper leagues only if you can, and we'll see what happens.

Minnesota Vikings

Bashaud Breeland (CB) Solid (Deeper leagues)

Patrick Peterson (CB) Solid (Deeper leagues)

Mackenzie Alexander (CB) Avoid

San Francisco 49ers

Josh Norman (CB) Solid

Emmanuel Moseley (CB) Solid (Deeper leagues)

K'Wuan Williams (CB) Avoid

Browns @ Ravens


Outlook: Between Lamar Jackson (QB) and his bubble guts and Baker Mayfield (QB) and his noodle arm we've got a pair of quarterbacks that don't do a ton of actual passing these days. Neither passing attack is ranked well at all, both quarterbacks are banged up or have been recently, both wide receiver corps are shredded with injury or lost one of their main weapons to diva drama plus both defenses are more than capable of turning this into a serious black and blue struggle. Not a great recipe for streaming CB production, we'll pass on it except for the excellent options (Ward, Humphrey) and will say deeper leagues only for those guys. Poopy matchup overall.

Cleveland Browns

Denzel Ward (CB) Solid (Deeper leagues)

Greg Newsome (CB) Avoid

Troy Hill (CB) Avoid

Greedy Williams (CB) Avoid

Baltimore Ravens

Marlon Humphrey (CB) Solid (Deeper leagues)

Anthony Averett (CB) Solid (Deeper leagues, if healthy)

Chris Westry (CB) Avoid, only played due to Averett injury

Tavon Young (CB) Avoid (Playing time)

Seahawks @ Football Team

Outlook: We could see some fireworks here since the Seahawks defense is basically Swiss cheese, that could allow the Football Team to complete some passes and as for the reverse what was once the best pass rush in the league is now down two of it's best options and is a shell of itself. That could even the score a bit and maybe allow Russ to cook something besides a microwave dinner.

Seattle Seahawks

DJ Reed (CB) Solid (Deeper leagues)

Sydney Jones (CB) Avoid (Fluctuation)

Bless Austin (CB) Avoid (Fluctuation)

Tre Brown (CB) Avoid (Fluctuation)

Washington Football Team

Kendall Fuller (CB) Solid

Bobby McCain (CB) Solid (Deeper leagues)

William Jackson (CB) Solid (Deeper leagues)

Johny The Greek

Non-delusional Cowboys Fan. Been playing Fantasy since 2003, IDP since 2004 and watching football for 35 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 (976) with 29 plus titles in redraft/dynasty across Yahoo, Sleeper, Fantrax and MFL and an additional 57 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. (Update, I did fine, 9-5 first season and made playoffs). 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. 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. Also in season check out the IDP Pros Podcast on SGPN network. 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-
