The Tipster’s Week Four Defensive Back “Easy” Start/Sit Chart & Players

The IDP Tipster’s Week Four 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. 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 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 Backs

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

As you can see, I don’t have options at a Hard Start to suggest. Plenty of solid’s, but overall the matchups for the AFC secondaries don’t offer up much for me to suggest.

AFC Soft Sits

What does stand out are the matchups for teams secondary worth avoiding in Week Four.

We should look for other options rather than trusting defensive backs on the Broncos versus the Chiefs. The Chiefs are still on a role and not allowing much in terms to the secondary players.

We have the same case with the Patriots facing the Dolphins, shockingly they also don’t offer up much to defensive backs.

I know that the Jags face the Jets and it makes me wonder exactly how this is going to work with neither team allowing enough to the secondaries to really suggest anyone.

Of course, I understand there is no possible way that none of the four teams above will go completely without a player in the secondary standing out somehow. We will fall on the fact we shouldn’t sit our studs, and I’ll wish you all good luck.


NFC Hard Starts

Packers SS Kentrell Brice was able to take the strong safety job away from what many of us thought would be Josh Jones bread and butter this year. Brice has performed well and running as an every-down player. With the Bills on the ticket this week and them allowing great production to LBs as well as the safeties, Brice should be thought of as the full-time LB/SS next to Blake Martinez and a Hard Start as such.

Buccaneers FS Justin Evans has a nice matchup with the bears this week and with Chris Conte to I.R. and the rumor that rookie Jordan Whitehead will be inserted on the field we have to figure they will lean on Evans more than normal to hold the secondary together. Expect a productive Week Four out of him.

NFC Soft Sits

Lions FS Glover Quinisn’t a player (stud) I’d normally suggest to sit. But going into Dallas with a team that allows very little to the cornerbacks or the deep safeties, he shouldn’t be in our lineups. Dallas will likely do all they can to control this contest and even if they don’t with the run game, we aren’t likely to all of a sudden see Dak throwing the long ball to try to keep up with Stafford and company.

Buccaneers rookie SS/FS Jordan Whitehead is getting the call as I mentioned above with Chris Conte going on IR. I can not suggest inserting him on the idea he will be a tackle magnet this week no matter how good the matchup looks on paper. I’ve suggested we pick him up, and as always I suggest we wait to see what we got going with a player before we trust them to win us on the IDP side of the ball.

There are always three Charts published, a 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.
