AFC DL/Edge WK16 Original IDP Easy Start/Sit Charts

by | Dec 19, 2019

IDP Chat Room

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

Users of these charts should always keep certain things in mind when using these charts. 

  1. 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.
  2. 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. 
  3. 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. 
  4. 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.

IDP Outside Linebackers are listed here?

The outside linebackers in the 3-4 defensive scheme are listed here as edge rushers. The are basically stand-up defensive ends in the 4-3 scheme, comparably. The outside linebackers in the 4-3 are listed in the inside linebacker charts. Splitting those IDP Fantasy Football hairs!

Notice/Please Read!

This is the final week for the entire IDP Easy Start/Sit Charts for the 2019 season. In general 90% of fantasy football leagues have their final championship match-ups at this time. And those leagues reaching into the final NFL week 17 are generally stretching the relevancy across the board. With most teams either sitting their normal starters for either playoff runs or evaluations of their depth players the odds are slim in week 17 that the charts can hold true. 

Please contact me on Twitter @TheIDPTipster , the members chat here on site, or email me with the title WEEK 17 IDP at I’ll be more than happy to try and split those IDP hairs as best as I can for those Championships in Week 17.

Thanks again to everyone and especially our members. 2019 was great! And please stay tune after the first of the year to see what 2020 holds. I have a big announcement coming in my efforts to take it to the next level on the defensive side of the fantasy football.

Happy Holiday And Have A Great New Year!

Week Sixteen

AFC Edge Rusher / Defensive Line IDP Fantasy Football
Easy Start/Sit Charts

East Notes:

Bills: Versus The Patriots. As marked. Noting that the solid are “barely” solid. 

Dolphins: Versus the Bengals. As Marked. 

Patriots: Versus the Bills. As marked. Noting that Van Noy has a lot of upside, but Simon and Guy are “just” solid.

Jets: Versus the Steelers. On paper this is an avoid across the DL/Edge board.

West Notes:

Broncos: Versus the Lions. As marked. Noting that the solid are “just” solid.

Chiefs: Versus the Bears. As marked. Noting that Suggs just signed and we shouldn’t risk anything at this time.

Chargers: Versus the Raiders. As marked. And noting that the last time these two teams matched up that Bosa did very little. And Ingram had one of his best contests of the season. It’s likely one of those cases that if you own either of these studs we can’t afford to have them on the bench unless you have a clear path to a strong match up with another stud edge rusher.

Raiders: Versus the Chargers. As marked. Noting that Hankins has upside and Ferrell and Crosby are “just” solid.

North Notes:

Ravens: Versus the Browns. As marked. Noting that Judon is “just” solid as an edge rusher. His “on-paper” match up is actually weak. But his upside with him as one of the only full time players bumped him up.

Bengals: Versus the Dolphins As marked. 

Browns: Versus the Ravens. As marked. 

Steelers: Versus the Jets. As marked. Noting that the solid have upside.

South Notes:

Texans: Versus The Buccaneers. As marked. 

Colts: Versus the Panthers. As marked.

Jaguars: Versus the Falcons. As marked.

Titans: Versus the Saints. As marked.
