The IDL and Edge streaming articles have been a bit bleak recently on hits. This is mainly due to how deep the selections have been. Most of the players chosen so far have likely been on the waiver wire. To finish the season strong, it is time to chose which players on your roster to start each week. Moving forward, most of these players will be rostered, though likely sitting on your bench. This article series will tell you when it is the best matchup for these players to have a potential blow up game. Here are the top IDL and Edge streaming targets for Week 10.
Week 10 IDL and Edge Streaming Options
Edge Josh Paschal, Detroit Lions
Matchup: Chicago Bears - Ranked 30th in Matt Bitonti's Rankings
Josh Paschal was part of this article series just last week. His three total tackles may look like the call was a miss, though the final stats were a tad misleading. Though he did not come away with any sacks, Paschal did create five pressures. Needless to say, the day could have been huge for him. Paschal had his best pass-rush grade of the season so far, with 63.8 per PFF. He has tremendous athleticism for almost 280 lbs. Watch here as he beats the chop block and makes the tackle.
also, don't be fooled by the size. Josh Paschal can move for a big fella. look at him here. quick like a cat. a 278 pound cat— Morgan Cannon (@MCannon313) November 9, 2022

Charles Harris made his return from injury in Week 9, though Paschal remained on the field for the majority of the team's snaps. Paschal has played on 87% of the team's defensive snaps over the three games he has played. The Lions matchup against the Bears this week. The Bears have allowed the 2nd most sacks so far in 2022 with 33. They also changed their offensive philosophy and have been running the ball with Justin Fields more. The Lions will be looking for their two rookie pass-rushers to set and control strong edges.
Edge Markus Golden, Arizona Cardinals
The start of Markus Golden's season was not strong, to say the least. He has turned up the heat over his past four contests. During that span, he has 20 tackles, 1.5 sacks, and 16 pressures. Golden is coming off of possibly his best game of the season. He dropped a six tackle, half of a sack, and seven pressure stat line against the surprising division-leading Seahawks. Watch how he made a strong push on the right tackle to collapse the pocket last week.

Golden squares off with the Rams during Week 10. The Rams offensive line has looked like a high school line since Andrew Whitworth retired after last season. They have allowed the 5th most sacks in the NFL with 28 and have not allowed this offense to get rolling at all. Golden and company should have a field day getting after Matthew Stafford.
IDL David Onyemata, New Orleans Saints
Onyemata has been surging a bit recently from the interior. Over the past four weeks, he has created 9 total pressures and carries a healthy 66.8 pass-rush grade so far in 2022. He leads all Saints interior defenders in snap percentage at 59.8%. Onyemata has also come away with a sack in consecutive weeks in Weeks 8 and 9. The Saints battle the Steelers in their Week 10 matchup. A team who was once the most feared offensive line group has looked abysmal in both run and pass blocking in 2023. The Steelers have given up eight sacks during their past two contests, including six before their bye week. The Saints pass rush should be able to rough up rookie quarterback Kenny Pickett.
