The IDP Tipster’s Week Twelve 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.

Same Old, Same Old

Thanksgiving week and schedules tight. I want these charts out at least before Thanksgiving morning if at all possible. So no 32 teams Live-Cast coverage again this week. I will add a bit more to the Tipsters Tip(s) where I think we need to know.

If you need to split hairs before this Sundays Tipster/IDPGuys start/sit segment on Sunday, I suggest reaching out to myself (@HBogart27) and The @IDPGuys on Twitter. Notify directly and we will get you an answer as soon as we can.

And don’t miss out, we will be there again. The revamped look and having all three of us on hand is working out better than we ever dreamed. Not to mention a little entertaining as well, I’m guessing.

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(s)

The Brown’s secondary isn’t as solid as marked on paper. But it is a divisional game so I did bump them up just enough to get them within the solid mark. I wouldn’t have if indications from prior contest didn’t allow me to do so. Of course who you choose, if you do, off the squad falls on you. No refunds!

With the Chargers I really felt that they should be bumped up as far as strong considering the state of the linebackers. But high solid is the best it got on paper. There is no need to think that if a DB has been producing for you from the squad that he won’t here. The Cards have changed their approach as of late on offense with a new OC. And I’m working with year-long statistics here. And as we have seen the Charger’s DBs are the key to the defense and have pretty well become matchup proof.

Steelers free safety Sean Davis might have his best game on the year this week versus the Broncos. And on the chart, the green X next to Davis’s red X is the rookie Edmunds, not Morgan Burnett. Just a “for your information” there.


The NFC Defensive Back Tipster Tip(s)

Don’t be surprised if the Bears secondary doesn’t outperform the “solid”. I actually was borderline between weak and solid on paper. But come on folks, this is a divisional game, in Detriot, on Thanksgiving, right? And last I saw the Lions are likely back to zero running game with the rookie likely out. If that last info I have seen holds true that he’ll be out. Either way, solid means solid.

All I can say with the situation in Tampa Bay is in this matchup with the Niners, if the tweet below stays in effect, get you some Jordan Whitehead or Isaiah Johnson. The matchup is top notch and the situation with the linebackers in Tampa Bay makes it glow IDP production. Even if Evans plays, all three could get a piece of that action if digging for upside.

Like the Bears versus the Lions on the day we give thanks, Dallas defensive backs have the potential at home that day as well to outperform the “solid” tag. An almost same situation to a point versus divisional rivals RedSkins, minus Alex Smith from what I’ve heard. At least Heath and likely Jones at the safety spots.

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.
