A big part of dynasty leagues are IDPs. While not everyone focuses on IDP, here at Dynasty Football Fan it’s a big area of focus. Let’s take a look at some intriguing plays this week in the IDP world.
Anyone playing Cleveland
That would be Philly this week. Which means look for upticks in production from Vinny Curry, Fletcher Cox, Brandon Graham, Jordan Hicks, Mychal Kendricks and Connor Barwin. These guys are regular IDP starters to begin with but getting Cleveland at home week one is like an early Christmas.
Carolina vs. Denver
I think there will be tough sledding in this game overall. Kuechly and his defensive unit are going to be crazed in Denver to show they have the chops to beat this team. With Trevor Sieman at the helm, they’ll have some chances. Don’t hesitate to play Kuechly, Thomas Davis, Kawann Short, Charles Johnson and Kony Ealy.
L.A vs. San Fran.
Another game I feel will be dominated by defense as neither of these offenses are particularly compelling. I think the Rams will dominate SF’s offense and that means great IDP plays for Aaron Donald, Robert Quinn, Alex Ogletree, Mark Barron and Trumaine Johnson.
Rookies to Consider
While rookies can take a while to develop on offense, on defense the best ones start well right out of the gate. Consider these sneaky starters for your IDP teams
