Johny The Greek’s Cornerbacks Corner Week Two (2)

Cowboys Anthony Brown was one of many cheap and available massive hit CB streams in week one

Welcome to Johny the Greek's Cornerbacks Corner Week Two. Last week we streamed corner and did it well. I recommended precisely 59 different corner streams over 16 different week one matchups and the vast majority of them worked out extremely well. We sit at 75% accuracy after week one based on those calls last week 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.

If you’re new to this article series the idea behind it is that in the IDP world cornerbacks are the red headed step child, often neglected or scoffed at. Not here. We love streaming corners and have for some time now, it's a key component of playing big boy IDP. This is not an article for the Sleeper IDP players of the world, the "DB" people, baby IDP if you will, although in deep enough leagues a CB stream at DB is still a decent option. This is more for your true degenerate, CB and DT required, a few points a week is going to make a difference, type of player. And while I do enjoy my Sleeper leagues and those kinds of leagues as well (variety is the spice of life), the vast majority of what I play in these days is those advanced, individual position, best possible competition, need every edge you can get type leagues. That's the audience here. If that's not you or you're not a fan of my approach the exit button is top right on PC, it looks like an X, close window on mobile.

I've been doing this long enough that I have my audience, I know my readers, we talk in and out of the season and I live a perfectly happy and fulfilling life beyond fantasy football, this is just a hobby for me and I am so far from interested in arguing about any of this that if that stuff were a star it would take the light from that star billions of years to reach me, save yourself the time on Twitter I'll just block and move on. Apologies to those of you that don't need this disclaimer but this is the world we live in these days, just making things clear up front. 

We’re going to be looking at things like expected game script, opposing offensive tendencies, snap counts, teams that are more or less likely to target wide receivers and historical production to inform our weekly decisions on what corners are an “ideal” streaming option. By giving this entire thing more than two seconds thought we will have a distinct advantage over our opponents who are not doing this over the course of the season. We are going to put ourselves in the best position possible every week to score the most IDP points humanly possible from our cornerback slots. 

Just a little background, I’ve been playing IDP for 18 years now and streaming corners for well over a decade of that time. In that time I have won clear of 25 titles in both redraft and dynasty traditional IDP leagues and many many more in best ball, DFS and college fantasy football. I am a true degenerate. Add an additional 50 plus second and third place finishes also in traditional IDP leagues, most of them with money prizes attached, and you'll start to envision how deep my degenerate tendencies go. I am absolutely NOT an analyst, I'm just a guy who loves playing IDP fantasy football and has been pretty decent at it for a long time. 

Personally I like to stream not only whatever the current week is but if my bench is big enough I’ll load up two more ideal streamers for the following week and by doing so I’ve already taken my pick of the litter a week before anyone else also streaming is even thinking about their corners for that week. Corner is a naturally spotty position but by looking at all the factors I listed above we will have better outcomes than the majority of IDP owners who simply put in a “known” corner with a big name (Richard Sherman for example) into their corner slots and ride out the production whether or not that matchup makes sense each week. Richard Sherman against last years Falcons or Chiefs makes sense, Richard Sherman against last years Jets or Patriots does not. 

It looks like we’ll have some pretty solid matchups this week and we’ll continue to target those for our ideal matchups but in today’s NFL, where passing is the name of the game, I’m sure we’ll find solid streaming options in just about every matchup so even those of us in the deepest of leagues have some options. I always give last weeks results as well as an overall season long accuracy because it’s important to be honest and up front with stuff like this, if I’m in a slump and making bad decisions you’ll know it and can decide if you want to follow these streaming suggestions or not. 

Last week I made 59 recommendations, of those 6 were declared inactive or injured, 40 were correct (met or exceeded projection) and 13 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 75% correct last week, 75% accurate for the season overall. Of those 40 correct calls last week 10 of them were “massive hits” (doubled or tripled projection) for a 25% massive hit rate.

Disclaimer Time! I’m not going to get all of these correct. Cornerback especially is a wildly inconsistent position for production in IDP fantasy football. That’s why most people hate it with a passion. My whole thing is to put yourself in the best position to succeed by looking at all the variables and making the absolute best streaming call possible. After that you pray. Your team is your responsibility and yours alone, you set the lineup not me. 

Take ownership if things go south, these are only suggestions. I will do my absolute best to make sure that these recommendations are the best possible and will base these on factual information and statistics from places like, PFF and other fantasy and NFL data and statistics sites. I will also use the force, sometimes a gut feeling is all I have to go on in an unknown situation but if it comes down to that just know this isn’t my first rodeo. 

I don’t work for the NFL, I don’t get to sit in on defensive team meetings for all 32 teams, I don’t get inside information. If a player has been producing all season and has been playing a ton of snaps and they get yanked right before a game obviously I had nothing to do with it and since I don’t work for said team no one told me. (See Vernon Hargreaves 2019). If someone goes down with an ACL it’s not because I made a voodoo doll of them and stuck it with pins. These decisions are the same ones I’m making for my teams so if things go bad for you they go bad for me as well. I’m just here to help, don’t kill the messenger.

Article Key:

Outlook: This will be a brief overview of the two offenses and how that will effect the outlook for each teams cornerbacks corps. We’ll look at offensive ranks for passing, expected game scripts, time of possession, competency of the quarterbacks and their WR corps and this will help us guess how the game should go. This will help us identify if this is a matchup we want to target for streaming corners or not. Also after last season's issues with weather causing problems with passing in some games we'll try and look at that as well (Raiders/Browns 2020 ring a bell?). First we identify the matchups we want to stream from then we identify the best options in those matchups.

Ideal Matchup: This is the best possible matchup for this teams cornerbacks, streaming corners from this team, especially guys that are talented and play all the snaps gives you the best chances at excellent production from those corners.

Solid Matchup: This isn’t a perfect matchup to stream corner but it’s still pretty good, if you’re in a deeper league and have fewer options to stream from this matchup is still a better option than most.

Avoid: This matchup will likely be terrible to stream corner from, due to anything from a god awful opposing quarterback who can’t complete passes to a banged up wide receiver corps or even a run first offense like the 2019 Ravens were there’s something that makes this a bad matchup to stream corners from, avoid if possible. However there may be specific corners who get a “solid” in an otherwise “avoid” matchup simply due to their talent and ability to make plays in all aspects of the defense (see Marlon Humphrey, he always starts, doesn't matter who's in town).


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.




***There will be games where I don't recommend streaming from one team or another but still have someone listed as solid despite that, in those situations it's talent over matchup. Tre'Davious White (CB) might be up against the leagues worst passing attack but at the end of the day he's still Tre'Davious White (CB) so I'd start him if I didn't have any better options***

***We'll be taking the offensive and defensive pass rankings with a grain of salt this week and probably for the first month of the season, not a big enough sample size for accuracy, I'll be throwing out defensive pass ranking completely this week unless it's a team with an obviously excellent passing defense. These factors will be relevant soon, just not yet, or rather they aren't accurate enough yet to be beneficial.***

Jaylon Johnson could be a nice stream against an excellent Bengals passing attack

Cincinnati @ Chicago

Outlook: The Bengals only managed 217 yards of passing offense in week one in a tough defensive struggle with the Vikings but we did see that Jamar Chase (WR) is going to be just fine and we know there are many excellent pass catching options on that offense plus a terrific young quarterback, the Bears corners intrigue me immediately due to those facts. The Bengals are towards the end of the pack in targeting their wide receivers so far this season but the sample size is small. The Bears week one passing attack was truly terrible and will likely remain so for as long as Dalton is at the helm, the Bengals corners that play enough are probably startable in super deep leagues but in general I'd look elsewhere for my streaming options. The Bears did target their wide receivers quite a bit in week one though so there is something positive here if you are forced to play any Bengals corners in this one.

With an over/under of 45.5 Vegas thinks this will be a lower scoring affair and I could see that as well, I just tend to think most of those points will end up in the Bengals box score. Start either Bears stud, sit your Bengals corners unless you don't have a choice. Dalton won't produce enough effective passing for any Bengals options to be a sure thing. One half of a good stream, mediocre overall.

Vernon Hargreaves had a nice week one and could be a nice play in your leagues against the Browns

Houston @ Cleveland

Outlook: The Texans may have won in week one and may currently be middle of the pack in passing offense (with an incredibly small sample size) but this was against the Jaguars not the 85' Bears. The Browns defense will be something they haven't seen yet this season and there will be a rather large difference in the effectiveness of Tyrod Taylor (QB) and company. The Texans are middle of the pack targeting wide receiver so far this season so no movement from that aspect either. I would be alright starting Ward or Newsome in much deeper leagues but once again there are better options this week. As for the reverse the Browns are just outside the top ten in passing offense so far this season and close to the top ten in wide receiver targets as well, our Houston corners look like a really nice option this week in what promises to be a blood bath and many points and much offense from the Browns as they likely improve to .500 on the season.

With a 47.5 over/under Vegas has this one not quite a shootout but also not a low scoring affair, I think it's safe to say the majority of those 47.5 points will end up in the Browns box score this week. Start your Texans corners with confidence in medium to deeper leagues, there's still an off chance that it's a strictly Chubb/Hunt game but I doubt it, Baker will put up some offense this week as well. One half of a good stream, mediocre once again.

Kenny Moore is always solid, with the Rams in town things look even better

Los Angeles @ Indianapolis

Outlook: The ninth ranked Rams passing attack, which looks incredible with Mr. Stafford at the helm, faces off against the mediocre, end of the middle of the pack Colts passing attack led by Carson Wentz and a bunch of no name receivers and tight ends. Surprisingly the Colts targeted their wide receivers far more than the Rams in week one but neither team really stands out in that department so we can ignore that factor. With an over/under of 48.5 Vegas thinks there will absolutely be some points scored here, most of them probably by the Rams if we're being honest. I would feel pretty safe starting the studs on both sides here but I like the Colts options exponentially better, I feel like the Colts will fight back a little more this week than they did against the Seahawks but that's just a gut feeling. Regardless the Colts options are good. For the Rams Ramsey and Darious Williams (CB) always have a chance to be good so they feel like a nice option in deeper leagues. Still only half of an excellent matchup overall. This ones in a dome also and that always helps for passing effectiveness, or at least in my mind it does. Removing the weather factor always helps.

Mr. Howard gets a juicy week two matchup with the Bills in town

Buffalo @ Miami

Outlook: Neither pass offense started with a bang in week one and this is a division matchup so it could be ugly, however I think it's safe to start our Dolphins studs here and hope we get a return to form for this Bills passing attack in week two. The Bills also were back in the top ten for targeting wide receiver in week one which bodes well for Howard and Jones. As for the other side the Dolphins passing attack was bad last year, bad in week one and their targeting of wide receiver remained less than ideal as well, end of the pack. With an over/under of 47.5 this will be an almost higher scoring affair with many believing the Bills end up with most of those points. On the Bills side of things I would be hesitant, there are many chefs in that secondary kitchen and the Miami passing attack isn't handing out meals as of yet. I'd start the Dolphins guys we can trust and avoid the Bills this week unless you don't have a choice in much deeper leagues.

Buffalo Bills:

Tre'Davious White (CB) Solid (Deeper leagues, 100% of snaps last week)

Levi Wallace (CB) Solid (Deeper leagues, 100% of snaps last week)

The Jets corners are still somewhat murky but there are some options for super deep leagues

New England @ New York






Outlook: Two very mediocre passing attacks, two very mediocre teams in regards to targeting their wide receivers. One team that is very likely to just run the ball down the other's throat, own time of possession and suffocate the other with their legit defense (you can guess which is which). This one seems pretty cut and dry, not enough talent on either team for effective passing and therefore effective corner production. This is a cursed matchup, avoid like the plague, although if you don't have any choice I'll provide the two options, possibly three, I'm seeing in my minds eye for this one in those deep, dark, degenerate thirty-two team single copy salary cap dynasty leagues. Vegas hates this one too, over/under of 43 which is the lowest we've seen so far this week. If you can I would definitely pass on this, there are better places to stream from this week.

Darius Slay had a nice week one

San Francisco @ Philadelphia

Outlook: Two middle of the pack passing attacks, so far anyways, of which neither stands out for targeting their wide receivers, face off outside in Philly while we're still in the nice weather portion of the season. With an over/under of 50 this one could see some fireworks and there are stars aplenty with guys like Hurts, Smith and Deebo so I do like it, don't love it. Start the guys who play enough here and we should see some nice production in medium to deeper leagues. Not quite a perfect stream but some promising factors in this one.

Cameron Sutton gets a decent week two matchup and makes a nice option in deeper leagues

Las Vegas @ Pittsburgh

Outlook: The Raiders have the best passing attack in the league...after one week. This obviously won't last but they had a really nice passing offense ranking for the 2020 season as well so we won't ignore this completely, as for the Steelers they had a tough fight in week one against a much better defense than Las Vegas has. The Raiders were also top ten in wide receiver targets in week one so we really like the Steelers corners this week, as for the reverse while the Steelers were middle of the pack for targeting their wide receivers in week one they were excellent in that category last season and are loaded with talent at wide receiver. With an over/under of 47 this one has a chance at being a low end shootout but could just as easily be a defensive struggle from my point of view so this isn't perfect just really good. Start the studs and guys that play enough in this one and we should have some really nice production out of this stream.

Jaycee Horn gets Mr. Efficient (Winston) this week, we must be in the Matrix

New Orleans @ Carolina

Outlook: The Saints were insanely efficient throwing the ball week one and Carolina was towards the end of the pack for their week one passing effectiveness, this one feels like we don't have an accurate read on either passing attack yet to be honest. Do we really think Jameis Winston (QB) will be that efficient all season? Do we really think the Panthers with those excellent wide receivers won't have some really huge days in the passing box score? Exactly. I like this one for some possible fireworks, Vegas has it as more of a defensive struggle with an over/under of 45 so who knows, could go either way. I feel pretty good about the Saints options here, regardless they should get the lead and force Carolina to throw the ball, as for the reverse we don't know if the Saints will even have to throw all that often with Kamara around so I'd probably just avoid the Panthers corners if I could. In deeper leagues though it is what it is so we'll go with the guys that play enough and have a nice chance at production in those deeper leagues. Mediocre overall, could end up being great but not a sure thing at all.

Kyle Fuller started strong in week one with the Broncos

Denver @ Jacksonville

Outlook: Also not great, not the worst matchup ever, not quite cursed, but not a ton of positives here either. The Jaguars are ranked top ten for passing attack but haven't faced a real defense yet this season, they do this week, that ranking will be much lower going into week three would be my bet. As for Denver they were able to complete passes against a much better Giants defense so they should have zero issues with the Jags pass defense. Both teams did well in targeting their wide receivers in week one, Jacksonville really well (fourth overall) so the Broncos corners look great here. As for the reverse the Jags corners still feel iffy to me, I watched this unit change basically every week last season so one week of snaps doesn't change that for me, I'd avoid them unless I didn't have a choice. Vegas believes this to be a lower scoring affair as well with an over/under of 45. Regardless we can start the studs (Fuller, Surtain) and the guys that play enough on Jacksonville in much deeper leagues and leave the rest with this once again mediocre matchup.

Byron Murphy is a terrific example of "The best ability is availability"

Minnesota @ Arizona

Outlook: The Vikings ended week one in the top five for passing offense and anyone with eyeballs saw what Kyler Murray (QB) did week one. This could be a real shootout, 50.5 is the current over/under and is the highest we've seen so far this week. I really like this matchup and the only thing giving me pause is Dalvin Cook (RB), it could just as easily be a 150 rushing yard, 3 touchdown Cook game instead of a Thielen/Jefferson game, that's the only thing preventing a perfect stream here. The Vikings targeted their wide receivers a ton in week one and the Cardinals were middle of the pack more towards the front so that factor looks good as well. This one should be fun across the board, fire up the studs and I'm sure we'll find value in the guys that play enough to start here as well for those deeper leagues.

AJ Terrell started with a nice box score and gets a perfect matchup in week two

Atlanta @ Tampa Bay






Outlook: I know the Falcons had a God awful week one but they were a top five passing attack last season and this is a division game, they aren't just going to roll over and take it again like last week. Both teams have stars at wide receiver, wide receiver and tight end for Atlanta to be accurate, and with an over/under of 52 this is now the highest combined total for the week so far, until we get to Dallas/Chargers at least I'm betting. Should be a shoot out, stars everywhere, two competent quarterbacks, lots to love here. Give me Carlton Davis (CB) or AJ Terrell (CB) and I'm feeling great, even the guys that play enough should have really nice value here in this one. Ideal place to stream from.

Nice to see you!!! Are you Patrick Mahomes???

Dallas @ Los Angeles






Outlook: And now we get to the absolute best place to stream from this week. The second and fourth ranked passing attacks this season and an over/under of 55 which is the highest for week two by a good amount. Both teams are also in the top ten for targeting their wide receivers, neither defense is the Gritz Blitz and both teams are absolutely loaded at wide receiver and with quarterback talent. Everything looks amazing here, stream of the century. Start all the corners here, all of them. Not really but most of them at least, perfect stream.

DJ Reed had a nice week one and gets a Titans passing attack that looks to bounce back in week two

Tennessee @ Seattle






Outlook: Forget what we saw in week one and forget the stats for this one, does it feel like a shootout? Does it feel like with AJ Brown, Julio Jones, DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett with Tannehill and Wilson pulling the trigger that there will be points and passing? Yes? Alright then. Perfect stream. I'm going completely off gut feeling and Vegas on this one, second highest over/under so far with 54 total. This is a perfect stream I don't care about the factors we usually look at. Go with God.

Marlon Humphrey gets a perfect week two matchup

Kansas City @ Baltimore

Outlook: One half of a beautiful stream here, we start the Ravens corners and love it, on the other end the Ravens still can't pass their way out of a paper bag with a map and a flashlight but they're sure going to have to try to keep up in this one so the relevant Chiefs corners may have some value as well. Over/under of 54.5 makes this one the second highest for the week now behind Dallas/LA and in front of Seattle/Tennessee. Feels like a shootout, unfortunately the Baltimore points will likely come from Lamar's feet and the running backs. One half of a perfect stream. Solid overall.

Jeff Okudah flew too close to the sun and is no more

Detroit @ Green Bay

Outlook: Same deal here, with an over/under of 48 and many betting the vast majority of that 48 will end up under the Packers box score we can start whoever has a pulse and is playing cornerback for the Lions and probably avoid our Packers corners here this week. King and Alexander are always capable of having a big game no matter the opponent but I just don't see the Lions hanging in on this one. Mediocre overall, Amani Oruwariye (CB) is probably the only corner I'd consider here unless in a really deep league.

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.

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-
