The IDP Tipster’s Week 11 IDP “Easy” Start/Sit Charts And All 32 Team Defensive Back 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.


Unfortunately, I am unable to record an IDP Tipster Live-Cast covering every NFL team’s defensive backfield this week and try to get the charts out in a more timely manner. But not all is lost, be sure to tune in this Sunday when I and the IDPGuys Nate and Jon go Live to answer all those hair-splitting questions you may have that the charts just can’t define for us. In this case what would be better than a personal touch right before the games on Sunday. As we go via periscope on Twitter Live and break whatever you have on your mind down to win out as the fantasy football playoffs in most leagues are just around the corner.

And be sure to check out my new Tipster Tips that in this case this week will be added with the charts. It will be in my Live-Casts when available and likely with a touch more detail going forward as long as things work out. But for this week I hope my “tip” can put an edge to your fantasy game that you’ll only get here with me and the IDPGuys site.

Defensive Back

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.


The AFC Defensive Back Tipster Tip: We should seriously consider Chargers S/LB Adrian Phillips for the rest of the season. He had already garnered playing time as a middle linebacker in sub-packages as well as time as the weakside linebacker. That’s right, not only time as the weakside but the middle as well. With Denzel Perryman on I.R. and the state of the lack of trust that D.C. Gus Bradly seems to have in his linebackers, Adrian Phillips arrow is pointing way up. You can have a look for yourself in the link below, since Week 5 he has become a stable in the defense again this year. And in those five contest played since then, he has accumulated around 30 combined tackles. Especially over the last three weeks. As a player designated both as a defensive back as well as a Linebacker, this play could at the least provide double coverage in depth for a run at the playoffs.

Adrian Phillips IDP production.


The NFC Defensive Back Tipster Tip: This one is deep, and I mean deep, but really one I just want to get on our radars. Keep an eye on Packers newly signed safety Ibraheim Campbell. The Packers have gone to hell in a handbasket with the safeties. Campbell was just signed before the last contest but was inactive likely due to the short time period to get up to speed. Now with Kentrell Brice also hurting they may turn to Campbell sooner than they like to have. Not that I wasn’t going to mention him before Brice’s injury this past contest. This looked like an under the radar move to me last week anyhow. Campbell has experience under D.C. Mike Pettine from their days in Cleveland. Granted Campbells never quite cut it as an overall starting caliper type, just yet. But even if we aren’t or doesn’t, the Packers have a need and if he fills that need in the IDP world production by default counts. He isn’t terrible, he does hold skills in the box safety area and it can be said his short area coverage skills are a bit above average. Either way, if he sees the field this weekend he needs to be considered on the radar more than what I’m mentioning right now. Got an extra bench spot?


There are always three Charts published, an LB, a DB, and Edge/DL. 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.
