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

Browns DE Myles Garrett may not have a better matchup the rest of this season as he does versus the Jets in Week Three. They not only allow a top-notch point to his position at DE but do as well to the DTs. This is normally a perfect combination for a talented defensive lineman such as Garrett to take advantage of. He just may be the best looking Hard Start on this list for this week’s contests.

Chargers DE Melvin Ingram isn’t actually a name we might expect us to have to slot in as a Hard Start considering the situation with Joey Bosa and Ingram’s stature. But in Week One Ingram laid an egg and he did manage a mild bounce back in Week Two versus the Bills. So we are going to firmly get him in as a Hard Start here with a great matchup on paper versus the Rams. We’ll just say that most IDP owners wouldn’t expect the Rams to give up much to DLs with those OLs and Gurley, but this is not the case. So make sure Ingram is one of your Hard Starts in Week Three.

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.

All Raiders and Dolphin DLs shouldn’t even be an afterthought this week versus each other. We’ve seen a lot of assuming this and assuming that since Mack was traded. And the Dolphins have a decent defensive line considering, but this is not the week to test any theories. Believe it or not, the Dolphins and Raiders are not allowing beans in terms of points overall to the DLs yet this season. We’ll want to look elsewhere and see who happens to be the first of the two to blink by doing so in this contest, maybe.

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.

Saints DT Sheldon Rankins is coming off a nice outing and it just keeps him in those lineups this week versus the Falcons. Rankins and all of his compadres on the defensive line are likely to have productive games with the Falcons allowing IDP points to both the DTs as well as the DEs. We are just sliding Rankins in here as the named Hard Start because he is not generally an obvious play.

Packers DT Kenny Clark was a name I had in last weeks Hard Starts if you missed out, but here’s your chance if he is still around to grab. Or if you are sitting on him because you took my advice, you’re about to have a double whammy in back to back matchups. His matchup in Week Three is just as appealing as it was in Week Two versus the Vikings. Either get him or keep him in, this young man is on a “matchups roll” and should be taken advantage of.

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 9ers DLs are a trending young group of big men that most wouldn’t consider sitting. But they face the Chiefs and they are not allowing anything to speak of in terms of DL points so far. Sometimes it’s hard for us to accept it, but until further notice, we shouldn’t consider the 9ers until after this weekend or we hear that all the Chiefs passing targets are ill and they say they only plan on trying to run the ball 90 times this week.

The Falcons DEs Beasley, Takk and Reed have a terrible matchup versus the Saints in terms of points allowed to their position at DE. Overall the only solid play coming off the Falcons DLs so far this year has been the DT Grady Jarrett. That is highly unlikely to change this week, so don’t risk any of them and have them all as Soft Sits on your bench.

The Tipster’s Week Three Defensive Back “Easy” Start/Sit Chart & Players ( Will Hit On 9/20 )

We are early in the NFL season and some things have to be worked 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.

Be sure to find me on Twitter @HBogart27, and if we have any follow-up questions I will address them as best I can with No Bullshit Content “takes” on anything IDP.
