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:

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 page. Where the charts are based on each team’s base defensive package.

AFC DE/Edge (OLB) ALL Divisions Playoff Edition

AFC East Notes: It isn’t looking good in general to be an AFC East DL/Edge owner. Flowers has come on as of late as I mentioned and his matchup with the Bills is spot on for that trend to keep going. Last time around he recorded six tackles. That’s likely his ceiling again this contest. I have the Jets group as solid versus the Packers based on the formula, good luck they live up to it.

AFC West Notes: Looks more promising in the West on paper. It’ll be a good week for Bronco owners, and I have listed in order from top to bottom on how I rank them as well. Wolf seems to be lamed up and might be a good one to avoid. The Chiefs interior lineman look a lot stronger than the outside guys. Ford gets his “solid” based off talent, and Houston was actually borderline weak, but splitting the hairs he should get us some production.

After last weeks contest and how the formula worked, I have no problem this week when so much is on the line to say it is a good week to avoid the Chargers. They have the Ravens who are bottom tier 3 in allowing points to the edge guys and mid-tier 2 with the inner guys. Considering the risk of the talent in the middle and all I’ve mentioned I’m not a fan. Raiders shouldn’t even be topic of this conversation versus the Broncos who have managed to shut down the defensive lineman on a regular basis, no matter the opponent overall.

AFC North Notes: Don’t take the charted for the Ravens wrong. I am not suggesting to go reaching this week for a Raven’s player. But on paper and knowing that the Chargers don’t “need” this game and are a little roughed up, it wasn’t hard for me to slot them all in as solid within reason. So we have the Bengals versus the Browns, neither overall being DL friendly, but this is a divisional contest of bragging rights.

And looking at the prior contest between them I can only say damned if you do and damned if you don’t. Two things have the Steelers in solid with risk. Steelers playoff situation and on paper with recent struggles of the Saints offensive line. Which Saints team shows up in week 16 is really the question here.

AFC South Notes: I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that I think the 3 solid Texans have a solid upside to the strong, particularly Reader. from my point of view. Don’t stop running with the Colt’s Autry, he’ll do just fine versus the Giants despite the Giants OLs actually holding their own last week. Nothing too shiny about the Jags DLs, talent added in does indeed have them solid and that’s likely the ceiling. As for the Titans, I have some concerns about how it played out on paper. Let’s just say I was generous in leaving the 2 as solid plays based on the trend the Skins have managed over the last few weeks.

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.
