Week 1 IDP Review
September 10, 2013 | Neil Parker
Lets take a peek at a few standout performances in the IDP Fantasy Football World. In this Week 1 IDP Review, I’m looking at players who are relatively unowned, so Clay Matthews’ beastly performance is not included. You’re also not going to find Mr. Jared Mayo and his 15 total tackles here either. Instead, hopefully, you’ll be able to pluck a few gems off the Week 1 IDP Review and get them into your lineup and a few extra checks in your win column.
Week 1 IDP Review:
DL Dontari Poe, Kansas City Chiefs: It was a gravy matchup against the Jags, but Poe went good for 5 tackles, 1.5 sacks and a tackle for a loss. The former first rounder has breakout written all over him.
DL Robert Quinn, St. Louis Rams: 3 sacks and 2 forced fumbles are a great start to the season. All kinds of talent here and he is set to be a difference maker.
DL Fred Evans, Minnesota Vikings: He is competing for a starting job and 5 solo tackles, one of which went for a loss gives him a good case for winning the gig.
DL/LB Trent Cole, Philadelphia Eagles: His DL eligibility is a bonus here. Cole is lined up as an outside linebacker and looked great last night. He’ll see an uptick in tackles and remains a solid pass rusher. Take note!
LB Zach Brown, Tennessee Titans: I was down on Brown heading into the season, I was wrong, at least in Week 1. He had a huge day, with 8 solo tackles and 2 sacks.
LB Jasper Brinkley, Arizona Cardinals: He had a nice day with 8 solo tackles, but when Daryl Washington returns from suspension it may hurt his stock. In the meantime, go get him in your lineup.
LB Alec Ogletree, St. Louis Rams: The rookie was a star on Sunday and wrapped up 7 solo tackles. This is an elite young defense and he’ll be in the mix for big plays all season because of it.
DB Duke Ihenacho, Denver Broncos: The guy was a tackling machine. He logged 11 and was around the line of scrimmage all the time. Go get him.
DB Barry Church, Dallas Cowboys: Teams are going to have to air it out to keep up with the Cowboys’ offense. Chuch had 7 solo tackles, but also forced and recoverd a fumble. The TD was a bonus.
DB Da’Norris Searcy, Buffalo Bills: There were question marks surrounding him in camp. Those have been answered. He had 9 total tackles, a sack, tackle for a loss, fumble recovery and a TD.
I focused on players who weren’t owned in the majority of leagues in this Week 1 IDP Review, so hopefully, you can pluck a few off the waiver wire here and there an beef up your roster.
