Thursday Night Football IDP Easy Start/Sit Charts: PIT. Vs. CLE.
All original and proven IDP Fantasy Football Easy Start/Sit Charts are based on a five step formula method. This formula is used on an accumulate amount of information data, stats, trends and info. And of course the knowledge of reading these in the formula used. These formulas were under development for approximately seven seasons before being shared with the general public. And in that process the Charts can claim in the general area, on average, of at least a 80% hit rate. Although in years past this has been tested and proven we have to keep in mind that in fantasy football it is always “any given Sunday”.
The IDP Fantasy Football Easy Start/Sit Charts Relevance At Stake
Users of these charts should always keep certain things in mind when using these charts.
- The fifth element of the five step formula used is the mind behind it’s innovation. So there is a human aspect to reading these results and the delivery.
- All input into these charts are raw at the beginning of the seasons until the core information catches up with that seasons data, stat, and trends. The first three weeks on average are basically a warm up period. As some end of the year information from the prior season is included. This is until on average around week four of each season we have established the current season’s own material. This in turn is the strength of the charts. And just in time for the important bye-weeks.
- Never sit a stud! As a disclaimer and delivery we need to always keep in mind that sitting a known” stud” over a player that is not isn’t advisable. The charts are meant to split the IDP hairs among the level of players talent. And it is never advisable to “reach” for a player in play if those “IDP hairs” are minimal.
- These Charts are based on match ups versus talent of said players when it is boiled down to it. And trusting the charts do take a commitment. That is not included in our delevery and soley on the users.

Thursday Night Football
The Steelers versus The Browns
Thursday , November 14th
Disclaimer: We do tend to side with caution on Thursday night charts. There is a whole lot of football to come on the weekends. So there needs to be clear cut reasoning applied to avoid starting off in the hole.
Serious IDP Warning! Please read!
It isn’t very often that via the 5-step formula used for the charts that this occurs. But after reading the end results in the notes this has to be stated. Across the board and because of either the situation there isn’t a lot of straight great news for this contest. Sometimes it is what it is when it works out this way. The best suggestion that we can offer is don’t sit a stud that got you where you are if you have been playing them. But you’ll notice there are no green bye week plays mentioned. And that’s for a good reason.
Of course there are going to be IDP players in this contest that will get the production. But it is our opinion that the odds are low for all of them to hit their normal ceilings. It is a “blah” match-up across the board.
ILB: This is actually a borderline strong match-up on paper for the ILBs. And would normally gave Bush his regular “upside” to strong in this case. But our warning was the off the wall snap counts last contest versus the Rams.
Barron: 92% – Bush: 45% – Williams: 17%
Now one has to assume that maybe that as one person on twitter suggested that Barron being an X-Ram might have had something to do with it. Or perhaps it was that they don’t trust Bush in coverage. But whatever the reason we have to look at the normal snap counts the prior weeks.
Average: Baron: 50% – Bush 80% – Williams 50%
This should be the case this contest versus the Browns. One would think they had some game plan that had Barron on the field reading the Rams as the defensive play caller just this one contest. Bush only recorded three total tackles that game. But there is now way we can have a guy like Bush on our bench.
The real warning, some might reach for Barron seeing his production last contest with so many snaps and opportunists to get that production. Playing it safe would not to be to trust or depend on that again this week.
SS/FS: As marked. On paper this is actually “upper” weak contest for the safeties. The Browns are ranked bottom third in allowing points to that position overall. But these two are main components on that defense and show play-making abilities across the board. So again, like Bush, we don’t have them on the bench unless you have 100% studs somewhere that you think would have better match-ups this week.
Rolling with what we know here, these guys at the least should end up solid enough.
DL/Edge Rushers: As marked. Just noting that it is more solid for the interior lineman marked over the Edge guys in Watt and Dupree.
ILBs: As marked. On paper this is barely solid. But the upside of the divisional contest along with the players roles should be solid enough. And of course Schobert has the highest ceiling.
SS/FS: As marked. “Just solid for Burnett on paper. And not enough upside to get Randell there.
DL/Edge Rushers: A little more solid for Richardson and Ogunjobi. Garret actually will work hard to get past the barely solid to weak mark on paper. Vernon is looking real “iffy” at this point. Thomas will likely get his snaps if he is out.
