It is Week 14, the week before the fantasy football playoffs. Getting your matchups right this week is more imperative than ever, especially if you are on the cusp of advancing to the championship rounds. All season we have provided actionable advice on both steaming and sleeper options at the IDL and Edge positions, and hopefully, it has aided in building a complete IDP lineup week to week. This is the last article of the regular season, and there is a slew of teams on their BYE week. Here are the top IDL and Edge streaming options to help fill the gaps of players in their Week 14 BYE.
Week 14 IDL and Edge Streaming Options
Edge Azeez Ojulari, New York Giants
Ojulari looked great in his first game back returning from IR. He finished with a sack and seven pressures while staying on the field for 58% of the team's snaps. In three games this season, he has 10 pressures and two sacks. Ojulari is an incredibly explosive player off the edge. Here are his seven pressures from Sunday.
He takes on the Eagles for Week 14. The Eagles are one of the best offensive lines in football, though are susceptible to allowing sacks with Hurts' high rushing floor. The Giants will need Ojulari's athleticism to help contain Hurts.
Edge George Karlaftis, Kansas City Chiefs
Karlaftis has really turned it up in the past two games. He has a sack in consecutive weeks now and seems to be hitting his stride. Karlaftis earned a 69.5 average pass-rush grade over those two weeks. He is not an elite athlete, but Karlaftis is technically refined. Watch his snap timing here as he knifes into the backfield.
Karlaftis gets the Broncos in Week 14. The Broncos are one of the biggest disappointments of 2022, and their offensive line is partly to blame. They have allowed the fourth-most sacks in the NFL with 38. Karlaftis could get a sack for his third consecutive week.
IDL Bilal Nichols, Las Vegas Raiders
Nichols has looked great recently. He has a pass-rush grade of 68.8 over his last three games. During that span, he has posted 12 tackles, one sack, and 10 pressures. Watch his dominant bull rush here.
Nichols and the Raiders take on a disheveled Rams team. The Rams have allowed the third-most sacks in the NFL with 42. Whoever starts for the Rams will likely have Nichols in their face all day.
