IDP Strong/Weak Plays

This will be a weekly feature for IDP owners out there who are having some troubles deciding who to start on Sundays. I’m going to analyze the statistics in a few different ways to find favorable matchups and unfavorable matchups and then point out some players who are most likely to be affected by those matchups. I’ll provide the reasoning behind these selections so you can think about it and decide for yourselves. I will also review my picks from the week before so you can see how accurate the picks have been. As most people know, predicting performance on a game by game basis can be difficult for offensive players, but that difficulty is often exaggerated with IDPs. Matchups are important, but there are so many other variables that come into play that sometimes you have to just stick with your best players and hope they come through with just one or two big plays. Good luck.

Hit Rate for last week: 7/17 (41%)

Year to date: 98/184 (53%)

A brief note about the hit rates: To provide an objective standard to evaluate these selections, 5 fantasy points will be used as the cutoff for DL and 6 fantasy points will be used as the cutoff for LB and DBs. Thus, when a player is listed as a strong start, that means I think he has a good chance to top 5 or 6 points based on his matchup, and when I say a player is a weak start, that means I think he has a good chance to put up fewer than 5 or 6 points. I’ll continue to evaluate my success throughout the season to try and provide you with the information you need to make your starting decisions.

Best of luck with your starting lineup decisions this week. Feel free to email me at rudnicki@footballguys.com with any feedback or suggestions regarding this article.


STRONG STARTS

DL St Louis Rams (@ Minnesota): DE Leonard Little

The Vikings rank #1 in fantasy points allowed to opposing DL this year, and #4 over their last 3 games. They also rank #4 in fantasy points allowed to defensive ends, with the LDE generally producing much more than the RDE. So, this looks like a great matchup for LDE Leonard Little, who has 15 solo tackles in the last 3 weeks but no sacks. RDE Anthony Hargrove has been a disappointment at the other end spot and only has 2 sacks on the year with none since week 6. He’ll be matched up primarily with LT Bryant McKinnie, who has played pretty well this year so Hargrove looks like a weak play despite the great overall matchup.

DL Tennessee Titans (vs Houston): DE Kyle Vanden Bosch

The Texans rank #2 in fantasy points allowed to opposing DL this year, and #7 over the last 3 games. They also rank #2 in fantasy points allowed to defensive ends this year, with neither end spot having an advantage over the other. As expected, Vanden Bosch had a rough outing against the Colts last week, but if you exclude both of his games against the Colts this year, he has 9.5 sacks in 10 games. He should rebound with a strong game this week. None of the other Titans have really shown enough consistency this year to warrant a start here, but a possible sleeper choice might be DT Albert Haynesworth, who has 14 solo tackles and 5 assists over his last 3 games. The Texans have been a poor matchup for DTs this year though so keep that in mind when setting your lineup.

DL Kansas City Chiefs (@ Dallas): DE Jared Allen

The Cowboys rank #3 in fantasy points allowed to opposing DL this year, and #1 over the last 3 games. They also rank #3 in fantasy points allowed to opposing defensive ends, with RDEs averaging nearly a full fantasy point more against them than LDEs. This looks like a great matchup for RDE Jared Allen, who leads the team with 8 sacks on the year but has seen his tackle numbers drop off a bit in recent weeks (just 5 solos over the last 3 weeks). Allen is a high energy player who never gives up on a play, and the Cowboys will likely try to run the ball as much as possible to take pressure off Bledsoe and their banged up offensive line. LDE Eric Hicks hasn’t done enough in recent weeks to warrant starting consideration and neither of the DTs are worth starting either.

DL New Orleans (@ Atlanta): DE Will Smith

The Falcons rank #5 in fantasy points allowed to opposing DL this year, and #10 over the last 3 games. They also rank #11 in fantasy points allowed to opposing defensive ends, with neither side having an advantage. The Saints came into the year with the best 3-DE rotation in the league, but only one of them has lived up to expectations this year. Will Smith leads the team in sacks with 7.5 and he has been on fire of late with 15 solos and 3.5 sacks in his last 3 games. As for the other DEs, Charles Grant has been a major fantasy bust this year and finished the game last week without even 1 solo tackle while Darren Howard has also been useless in recent weeks and finished the game against Tampa last week with 0 fantasy points. It would be difficult to start either one of these guys with much confidence this week, despite the favorable matchup.

LB Denver Broncos (vs Baltimore): WLB Ian Gold

The Ravens rank #1 in fantasy points allowed to opposing LBs this year, and #1 over the last 3 games. MLBs are averaging over 10 fantasy points/game against them, so it looks like another great matchup for Al Wilson, but he’s failed to capitalize on other good matchups earlier this year and has just 12 solo tackles in his last 5 games. WLBs are averaging a healthy 7 fantasy points/game against the Ravens as well, so I’m going to go with Ian Gold as the best start from this group. He leads the Broncos in tackles this year and is coming off a 10-solo game against the Chiefs last week. SLBs are averaging 5.5 points/game against the Ravens, so this matchup doesn’t look too bad for DJ Williams either, who has shown signs of fantasy life lately with 11 solos in the last 2 games.

LB Chicago Bears (vs Pittsburgh): MLB Brian Urlacher, WLB Lance Briggs

The Steelers rank #2 in fantasy points allowed to opposing LBs this year, and #2 over the last 3 games. MLBs are averaging almost 9 points/game against them, so this looks like a great matchup for Brian Urlacher, who had his first double digit tackle game last week against the Packers. The matchup doesn’t look as favorable for Lance Briggs as WLBs are only averaging a little less than 6 fantasy points/game against Pittsburgh, but Briggs has 36 solo tackles in his last 5 games and should be very involved in trying to shut down the Steelers running game in what will likely be a low scoring game.

LB Minnesota Vikings (vs St Louis): MLB Sam Cowart

The Rams rank #3 in fantasy points allowed to opposing LBs this year, and #3 over the last 3 games. Last week against the Redskins, all 3 starting linebackers finished with exactly 5 solo tackles. The week before against the Texans, all 4 starting linebackers finished with at least 5 solo tackles. The week before that, all 3 Cardinals linebackers finished with 4 or more solo tackles. This seems to be an equal opportunity matchup that helps all linebackers, but the middle/inside linebackers have done slightly better and MLB Sam Cowart has been the most consistent fantasy option from the Vikings linebacker group so he gets the nod here. He has 2 quality starts over the past 4 weeks and should be able to get one again this week. None of the other Vikings linebackers have done much of late to warrant starting consideration despite the seemingly great matchup, but EJ Henderson might be a decent sleeper choice if you’re desperate.

LB Miami Dolphins (@ San Diego): MLB Zach Thomas

The Chargers rank #8 in fantasy points allowed to opposing LBs this year, and #7 over the last 3 games. As would be expected, MLBs do the best against them, averaging over 9 fantasy points/game while both OLBs are averaging about 6 points/game. MLB Zach Thomas has missed 2 games with shoulder and ankle injuries but returned to practice this week and is expected to play on Sunday. He’s a must-start player when healthy, but even more so when the matchup looks this strong. Channing Crowder was a fantasy disappointment at MLB while filling in for Thomas, but might do better after moving back to WLB where he has been playing for most of the year. SLB Donnie Spragan has been solid when given a chance to play and the matchup actually looks better for him than it does for Crowder this week.

DB Minnesota Vikings (vs St Louis): CB Antoine Winfield, FS Darren Sharper

The Rams rank #1 in fantasy points allowed to opposing DBs this year, and #1 over the last 3 games. Additionally, they rank #1 in fantasy points allowed to opposing CBs and #6 in fantasy points allowed to safeties, so this looks like a great matchup for the entire Vikings secondary. CB Antoine Winfield is the leading tackler on the team and is averaging 5 solo tackles/game so he should be a very strong play this week. FS Darren Sharper is averaging less than 3 solo tackles/game, but has 7 interceptions on the year with 6 of them coming in his last 5 games.

DB Washington Redskins (@ Arizona): CB Carlos Rogers, FS Sean Taylor

The Cardinals rank #2 in fantasy points allowed to opposing DBs this year, and #8 over the last 3 games. Although the offense relies heavily on their WRs, it doesn’t seem to favor CBs much as the Cardinals currently rank #1 in fantasy points allowed to opposing safeties and #2 in points allowed to opposing CBs. Rookie CB Carlos Rogers has been getting more playing time lately and has made the most of it with 13 solo tackles and 2 interceptions over the last 2 games. Look for him to be tested frequently by the Rams this week. Shawn Springs and Walt Harris have also had good games in recent weeks and might be worth a start this week as well given the great matchup. FS Sean Taylor had a good game against the Rams last week and should keep it going this week against another great matchup. SS Ryan Clark has just 1 quality start in his last 4 games and the Rams running game hasn’t been that great lately, so he seems like the weakest start of the group.

DB Detroit Lions (@ Green Bay): SS Kenoy Kennedy, CB Dre Bly

The Packers rank #3 in fantasy points allowed to opposing DBs this year, and #2 over the last 3 games. They also rank #3 in fantasy points allowed to opposing CBs and #7 in points allowed to safeties. SS Kenoy Kennedy leads the team in tackles and has been the most reliable option from the Lions secondary all season long. He has 13 solo tackles in his last 2 games and picked off a pass from Favre in the season opener so he should be good for a quality start this week. Given the favorable CB matchup, Dre Bly should be in for a good game this week. Injuries have limited him to just 8 games this year, but he has 4 interceptions in those games.

DB Buffalo Bills (@ New England): CB Nate Clements, SS Lawyer Milloy

The Patriots rank #5 in fantasy points allowed to opposing DBs this year, and #3 over the last 3 games. They rank #13 in fantasy points allowed to safeties and #10 in points allowed to CBs. Last week against the Jets the top 3 CBs totaled 15 solo tackles against them, and the week before against the Chiefs the top 3 CBs totaled 18 solo tackles. CB Nate Clements hasn’t made as many big plays this year as he did last year, but he’s on pace to set a career high for tackles and has been getting thrown at more than usual in recent weeks. Terrence McGee is not completely healthy so it’s hard to know how much he’ll play on Sunday. Lawyer Milloy is averaging over 7 solos/game over the past 4 weeks and should be extra motivated facing his old team, so look for a strong game from him this week. FS Troy Vincent has been fading recently and has just 1 solo and 3 assists in his last 2 games, so starting him this week looks pretty risky.


WEAK STARTS

DL Jacksonville Jaguars (vs Indianapolis): DE Reggie Hayward, DE Paul Spicer

The Colts rank #32 in fantasy points allowed to opposing DL this year, and #27 over the last 3 games. They also rank dead last in fantasy points allowed to defensive ends this year, and the side of the line doesn’t seem to make a difference. Therefore, this looks like a very unfavorable matchup for Reggie Hayward, who only has 6 solo tackles and 0 sacks over the last 6 games. DE Paul Spicer has been playing great lately with 4 sacks in his last 5 games, but he should also have trouble generating much of a pass rush against this Colts offensive line. Indy is a more favorable matchup for defensive tackles (rank #10 in points allowed to DTs), so owners shouldn’t be terrified of starting John Henderson this week. Since he relies primarily on tackle numbers for his fantasy production he should be alright this week, and he finished with 8 solos the last time these two teams played each other.

DL Detroit Lions (vs Green Bay): DE James Hall, DE Kalimba Edwards

The Packers rank #31 in fantasy points allowed to opposing DL this year, and #23 over the last 3 games. They also rank #29 in fantasy points allowed to defensive  ends and #30 in fantasy points allowed to defensive tackles, so it’s a bad matchup all around for the Lions defensive linemen. RDE James Hall had a very good game against the Packers in the season opener, but has now gone sackless for 5 straight games and hasn’t shown the same burst that he did last year when he finished with 11.5 sacks. Kalimba Edwards has been the Lions best pass rusher this year with 7 sacks, but he’s finished with 1 or fewer fantasy points in 3 of the past 4 games. DT Shaun Rogers has been playing well with 10 solos, 1 sack, and 2 FFs in the last 3 games and might be worth a start in leagues that require a starting DT.

DL Miami Dolphins (vs San Diego): DE Vonnie Holliday

The Chargers rank #28 in fantasy points allowed to opposing DL this year, and #26 over their last 3 games. They also rank #24 in fantasy points allowed to opposing defensive ends this year with RDEs averaging about 1.5 fantasy points more per game against them than LDEs. RDE Jason Taylor is one of the best defensive ends in the league and he’s having a solid season, but he’s pretty banged up right now and playing through a painful shoulder injury. He’s not on the injury report this week though and should play, and given that the Chargers are allowing almost 5 fantasy points/game to opposing RDEs, the matchup looks pretty neutral for him. Despite a big game against the Raiders a couple weeks ago, Vonnie Holliday has a tough matchup and looks like a weak play this week. LDEs are only averaging about 3 points/game against the Chargers, and Holliday only has 2 quality starts in 12 games played.

DL Minnesota Vikings (vs St Louis): DE Erasmus James, DE Darrion Scott

The Rams rank #26 in fantasy points allowed to opposing DL this year, and #32 over their last 3 games. They also rank #25 in fantasy points allowed to defensive ends. The Vikings defense has been playing better lately, but it’s been mostly with players who started the year as backups. Rookie DE Erasmus James recorded his first sack against the Packers a couple weeks ago and then had 4 solos against the Lions on Sunday, but don’t expect his breakout performance to come this week. DE Darrion Scott has been very consistent, finishing most weeks with 3 solo tackles and he has 2 of his 3 sacks in the past month, but the Rams just haven’t been giving up any points to defensive linemen recently. I should point out that their last 3 games were against Arizona, Houston, and Washington, so it probably isn’t a big surprise that those defensive lines weren’t able to generate a lot of fantasy points. The Vikings don’t seem much better though. At DT, Pat Williams is having a Pro Bowl season, but coming off his only 0-solo game of the season. CJ Mosely has stepping for Kevin Williams at DT and played great with 7 solos, 3 sacks, and a FF in the last 2 weeks. Both Vikings DTs seem like better options than the DEs this week.

LB Pittsburgh Steelers (vs Chicago): ILB Larry Foote, OLB Joey Porter

The Bears rank #32 in fantasy points allowed to opposing LBs this year, and #32 over the last 3 games. Despite having a solid running game, the passing game is the worst in the league and the offense just doesn’t sustain long enough drives to give linebackers many tackle opportunities. The strength of the Steelers defense is their linebackers, but they’ve been struggling a bit lately. ILB James Farrior hasn’t made as many big plays this year as he did last year, but his tackle numbers have been very consistent and he remains a key component of their defense. He’s only failed to be a quality start twice in 10 games. ILB Larry Foote actually has more solo tackles than Farrior this year, but he’s played in 2 more games than him and his numbers have dropped off the past couple weeks since Farrior returned to the lineup. OLB Joey Porter is doing a great job of rushing the passer with 6 sacks this year, but with just 12 solo tackles in the last 5 games, his production relies very heavily on the big play. WLBs are only averaging about 4 points/game against the Bears this year so this looks like a tough matchup for Porter.

LB Jacksonville Jaguars (vs Indianapolis): WLB Daryl Smith

The Colts rank #13 in fantasy points allowed to opposing LBs this year, but are #31 over their last 3 games. The team has done more damage with the passing game in recent weeks than they did earlier in the year. Mike Peterson should be fine as MLBs are averaging about 8 fantasy points/game against the Colts. Daryl Smith, however, could be in for a tough week as the Colts are only allowing about 4 fantasy points/game to WLBs this year. Smith’s tackle numbers haven’t been that great in recent weeks, but he’s shown himself to be a solid blitzer with 3 sacks in the last 5 games. That new skill doesn’t figure to help him much this week though since Manning doesn’t take many sacks.

LB Washington Redskins (@ Arizona): MLB Lemar Marshall, WLB LaVar Arrington

The Cardinals rank #26 in fantasy points allowed to opposing LBs this year, and #21 over the last 3 games. This matchup burned me last week as I rated the 49ers ILBs went out and finished with 13 solo tackles and 2 sacks despite a very unfavorable matchup. That result looks like a fluke compared to the rest of the LBs who have faced the Cardinals this year though, so I’m going to hope things hold truer to form this week. SLB Marcus Washington has been the best LB for the Redskins all year and he comes into this game 5 straight quality starts so it would be difficult to bench him. MLB Lemar Marshall has been almost as productive this year, but with just 2 quality starts in his last 4 games he seems more likely to struggle this week. On a similar note, WLB LaVar Arrington has just 1 quality start in his last 4 games, but he’s also listed as questionable on the injury report with a thigh injury so that gives you several reasons to leave him on your bench this week.

LB Green Bay Packers (vs Detroit): WLB Robert Thomas, SLB Na’il Diggs

The Lions rank #29 in fantasy points allowed to opposing LBs this year, and #29 over the last 3 games. MLBs are averaging a robust 9 points/game against them this year, so Packers MLB Nick Barnett should be fine this week. Barnett has been averaging almost 6 solos/game this year, and has failed to reach 6 solo tackles just once in the last 6 games. At WLB, Robert Thomas returned to the starting lineup last week after missing a couple weeks with an injury. However, with just 1 quality start in 10 games played, he’s certainly not someone you want to rely on this week. SLB Na’il Diggs is also a bad play this week as he has just 1 quality start all year. Making matters worse, both are listed as questionable on the injury report this week, with Thomas actually missing practice on Wednesday.

DB Chicago Bears (@ Pittsburgh): SS Mike Brown

The Steelers rank #32 in fantasy points allowed to opposing DBs this year, and #20 over their last 3 games. They rank #30 in fantasy points allowed to CBs this year and #26 in points allowed to safeties so it looks like a tough matchup for the entire Bears secondary this week. CBs are averaging less than 5 points/game against the Steelers this year, but it would be difficult to consider benching either Charles Tillman or Nathan Vasher. Tillman comes into the game with 23 solo tackles, 1 sack, and 1 interception in his last 3 games, while Vasher has 11 solos, 3 interceptions and a TD in the same time span. SS Mike Brown is also having a great year, averaging over 5 solos/game, but only 2 strong safeties have finished with 5 or more solo tackles when playing the Steelers this year so this looks like a tough matchup for him. FS Chris Harris has been ruled out of the game this week with a knee injury and Todd Johnson will take his place in the lineup, but don’t look for much production out of him.

DB Carolina Panthers (vs Tampa Bay): FS Mike Minter

The Buccaneers rank #20 in fantasy points allowed to opposing DBs this year, and #32 over the last 3 games. They rank #28 in points allowed to safeties and #20 in points allowed to CBs. Based on that info, this matchup looks relatively neutral for CBs Ken Lucas and Chris Gamble, who have combined for nearly 100 solo tackles and 9 interceptions this year and will likely be matched up against Joey Galloway and Michael Clayton. The Panthers safety tandem looks more likely to struggle this week. Out of the Bucs last 4 games, only one safety has finished with more than 4 solo tackles. FS Mike Minter does have 4 quality starts in his last 5 games, including one against Tampa, but he has 2 or fewer solo tackles in 3 of those games. SS Marlon McCree has been one of the bigger fantasy surprises this year and would be tough to bench this week despite the tough matchup, as he currently leads the team in tackles and has 21 solo tackles in his last 3 games.

DB Arizona Cardinals (vs Washington): FS Robert Griffith

The Redskins rank #27 in fantasy points allowed to opposing DBs this year, and #31 over the last 3 games. They rank #18 in fantasy points allowed to CBs, but just 29th in points allowed to safeties. SS Adrian Wilson has been arguably the best fantasy DB all year so he’s a must start regardless of matchup. That leaves Robert Griffith as the player most likely to suffer this week. Free safeties have been averaging 5 fantasy points/game against the Redskins this year, and Griffith has just 1 quality start in his last 4 games. At CB, David Macklin have been putting up solid numbers each week and rookie Antrel Rolle is expected to return and play in the nickel defense this week. CBs are averaging about 5 points/game against the Redskins this year so the matchup looks pretty neutral for them this week.

DB Indianapolis Colts (@ Jacksonville): SS Mike Doss, CB Nick Harper

The Jaguars rank #24 in fantasy points allowed to opposing DBs this year, and #30 over the last 3 games. They rank #21 in points allowed to CBs each week, and #27 in points allowed to safeties. Among the safeties, free safeties are averaging about .5 point more per week than the strong safeties are, so this looks like it should be a tough matchup for SS Mike Doss. Doss has been consistent over the past month or so, finishing with 3 or 4 solo tackles in the past 5 games, but has just 1 quality start during that time span. Bob Sanders hasn’t been consistent at all, finishing with 9 solos against the Steelers a couple weeks ago and then coming up with just 1 solo stop against the Titans this past Sunday. He’s tough to predict from week to week, but he did finish with 9 solos against the Jaguars in week 2 and his potential for huge games probably makes him a better start than Doss this week. Cornerbacks are averaging about 5.5 points/game vs the Jaguars this year, but Nick Harper is really the only reliable CB from the Colts secondary. With Garrard under center this past week though, Browns CBs only finished with 3 solo stops combined so don’t expect too much from him. Also note that he’s listed as questionable on the injury report this week with a groin injury.
