The Tipster’s Playoff Edition: WK 15 NFC DE/Edge All Divisions “Easy” Start/Sit Chart & “Live-Cast”


The IDP Tipster’s Week Fifteen IDP “Easy” Start/Sit Charts And All 32 Team Linebacker 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.


Defensive Lineman & Edge Rusher (OLB) Chart Guidelines

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.


NFC DE/Edge (OLB) ALL Divisions Playoff Edition

NFC East Notes: Pretty clear why Lawrence was the only DL worth bumping up to Solid. It’s his talent that we don’ sit a stud unless we have a real better option. The Colts don’t allow points to the DLs on average. The Giants is also pretty clear. The snap counts and the unknowns have things “off” enough that it’s not worth risking any in the playoffs. Eagles are cut and dry per the chart. And the same with the Redskins.

NFC West Notes: Love Jones versus the Falcons, too bad Golden and Mayowa are splitting snaps 50/50 in this case. That throws some risk in what is a solid matchup for both. I added the note on Fowler because I don’t trust him, I don’t think anyone should this time of the season. We just don’t have a strong enough sample even if he is getting a nice portion of snaps. Seahawks Reed and Clark should have a great time versus the Niners and all they allow to DLs. But the rest of their DLs just mix and match too much to know who could be productive. Buckner manages to be a strong start versus the Niners, just go look at his last contest versus them just 2 weeks ago. With 7 combined, 2 tackles for a loss and 2 sacks 2 weeks ago I debated on slotting him in the strong play.

NFC North Notes: It’ll be a great time to be a Bears DL/Edge owner this week, just know that the two solid plays might be great on paper, but the other 3 strong plays might not leave much on the table for them. The numbers come up with a solid matchup for Harrison because of who he is and for Okwara based off his snap counts, other than that it’s not all that great of an idea to “reach” there. For the Packers, Clark has been solid all year, too bad the rest just can’t matter much. The Vikes chart is charted as the matchup by the five-step formula indicates. Don’t be surprised when one or all take a step up into the next level by the time it is over.

NFC North Notes: The Falcons DT Jarrett only makes it solid based on the fact that he is that anchor and snaps winner for their DLs. Keep that in mind if you feel like risking any of the others. I’ll explain the Saints versus the Panthers contest by saying that neither really allow any points on average on paper to DLs. So am I really suggesting to sit Saints stud DE Cameron Jordan? After watching Bosa go for one tackle on Thursday night versus the Chiefs who also don’t allow points to DLs that mirrors the Saints and Panthers on paper, yes, yes I am. I’d rather watch him produce some than for me to tell you that I suggest he’ll be fine at this stage of the FF playoffs. JPP is the only player I can suggest for the Bucs. The snap counts are all screwed up with the Bucs trying to see who is worth keeping in 2019 and JPP makes it to solid only because of his sure will that he’ll get some production of some type. His matchup is only a 1/2 step better than any Saints and Panthers matchups on paper.

AFC South Notes: Read it as it goes, and sure looking like a great time to be a Colts Autry owner. Be sure to keep up on injury reports.

There are always more Charts published for LB, SS/FS, and Edge Rusher/DLs. 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.
