The IDP Tipster’s Week Six IDP “Easy” Start/Sit Charts And Hard Starts/Soft Sits Players To Target 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.

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 scour 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 Rushers

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 Hard Starts

Buffalo DE Jerry Hughes has stepped up this season as a pure 4-3 defensive end. That step up has him as a Hard Start in Week 6 versus the Texans who allow top five type production to defensive lineman. He’ll have plenty of opportunities to get after the quarterback as well as some tackles for losses.

Jets DE Leonard Williams was off to a slow start at first this season, that has completely flipped. Williams has had two strong outings versus a couple of opponents the last two weeks that weren’t as appealing as his matchup versus the Colts this weekend. We should expect nice production out of him and should see him in the Colts backfield a few times.

AFC Soft Sits

Denver Edge/OLB Von Miller might not be a name you would expect to see as a Soft Sit. But considering he has been a bit of a lackluster play the last few weeks and is facing the Rams this weekend, he should be on our benches if we have a better option who could be considered a “stud” with a better matchup. On paper, this is not a good matchup at all for Miller owners.

Browns DE Myles Garrett is another player we really shouldn’t think about sitting, but like Miller versus the Rams, Garretts matchups versus the Chargers is terrible this weekend on paper. When looking over his past contests if the team he went up against was not in the top half of the spectrum allowing points to DEs, he didn’t produce. And that is the case this game with the Chargers not allowing those points to his position.


NFC Hard Starts

Niners DL Deforest Buckner has done much via his matchups since week two, that shouldn’t be a problem this coming weekend. He has a nice matchup on paper versus the Packers who allow a lot of points to the first level of defenses. Look for a bounce back as a Hard Start in Week Six.

Seahawks DE Frank Clark hasn’t seen a matchup all year long like he has this week versus the Raiders. He has only faced teams that don’t allow anything to speak of to DLs. The Raisers are his first top 10 team allowing points to DEs and he’ll surely take advantage of that fact in London this weekend.

NFC Soft Sits

Vikings DE Stephen Weatherly has been a trending name as a solid pick up with veteran Griffen out of service. I’ve recommended to “pump the brakes” on that thinking and still trying to here. He didn’t actually “replace” Griffen in his position on the field per say.

He took the opposite side where hunter played and Hunter moved to the blind side. But in any case, this isn’t the week to test the high motor depth player to see if he can prove me wrong. Somehow the Cardinals don’t allow points to the DLs worth mentioning.


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.

We are still fairly 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.
