The IDP Tipster’s Week Three IDP “Easy” Start/Sit Charts And Hard Starts/Soft Sits Players ToTarget Or Avoid


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. And 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 skewer 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 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: 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.

AFC

AFC Hard Starts

Wonder why they are “Hard Starts”? Because this early in the season we should all be starting our best possible studs in 99% of the cases. But if there are questions on which stud to start, these are hard “takes” on players I suggest you’ll not want to overlook if you got them.

Broncos SS Justin Simmons clearly (per chart) has one really nice matchup in Week Three versus the Ravens. He’ll be right in the middle of all of it as the Ravens run the ball and dink and dunk those passes. And as a bonus for Simmons is how the Ravens use the two-tight end sets a lot to work the line of scrimmage and the midfield area. With Denver seemingly stuck on keeping a coverage “challenged” MILB Todd Davis in as a full-time player, there should be a lot of cleaning up for Simmons to take advantage of as well. Even if you were to hear they have wised up and will go with the rookie Josey Jewell over Davis, do not freak out. There will still be plenty of opportunities for Simmons to make him worth the Hard Start in Week Three.

Chiefs Starting Safeties, whoever they are on gameday in Week Three versus the Niners should be Hard Starts. Ron Parker and Eric Murray have been the guys while Eric Berry has been out. But some current reports as I type this has Berry likely to get some practice time in because his heel is feeling better. If you own one, or even have the rookie Armani Watts on standby, be ready to insert one whenever we know for sure who is going to be the starters. The Niners have offered up top ten IDP production to both safety positions. The reward for babysitting the situation will pay off as Hard Starts this contest. Update: Eric Berry still not practicing as of Wed. 9/20.

AFC Soft Sits

In general, I am calling these soft because you should keep them in mind as players who won’t be able to produce at the level you’ll need them to. If you own a teams “stud” give these “takes” I’m about to lay out consideration as you split hairs on who exactly you trust.

Steelers Secondary should be 100% avoided versus the Buccaneers in Week Three. Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick can’t help but find the wide open man and this completely eliminates the idea that the Steelers secondary players have a good game. Because of Fitzpatrick’s hot hand, the Buccaneers are in the rock bottom in secondary production across the board. Do yourselves a favor and until further notice, avoid secondary players versus Fitzpatrick. It will be interesting if he is benched with such a hot hand when the crab man who can’t keep his filthy claws to himself is reinstated.

NFC

NFC Hard Starts

Wonder why they are “Hard Starts”? Because this early in the season we should all be starting our best possible studs in 99% of the cases. But if there are questions on which stud to start, these are hard “takes” on players I suggest you’ll not want to overlook if you got them.

Falcons SS/FS Ricardo Allen just might make the stat keepers at the Falcons versus Saints game break out the extra booklets when they play in Week Three. His whole situation for the Falcons has put him dead center of the upper tier safeties and almost will be matchup proof until Keanu Neal returns. That was simple enough to say, he is a Hard Start this week and likely for weeks to come.

Giants FS Curtis Riley is likely being overlooked in 99.9% of standard leagues out there in fantasy football land, so be sure to grab him here for a Hard Start in Week Three. He is running as a full-time player and has one heck of a matchup this week with the Texans, who can’t help themselves when given up points to the deep secondary. Let’s just say they are firmly in the top three in allowing points to the safeties as well as the cornerbacks so far this season.

NFC Soft Sits

In general, I am calling these soft because you should keep them in mind as players who won’t be able to produce at the level you’ll need them to. If you own a teams “stud” give these “takes” I’m about to lay out consideration as you split hairs on who exactly you trust.

The Bears and The Niners deep secondaries are all Soft Sits in Week Three with their matchups. The Cardinals (vs. Bears) offense has fallen and can’t get up. As in up the field plays where the deep secondary players are. We aren’t talking very rock bottom, but we are talking bottom tier across the board. As for the Niners taking on the Chiefs, it’s just the opposite reason to sit the Niners secondary. We have the same theme with Chiefs QB Mahomes as with Bucs QB Fitzpatrick, just too good right now to be gambling against him.

We are early in the NFL season and some things will work themselves out among many of the NFL teams. 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.
