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.

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!

Week Seven

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

East Notes: 

Bills: Versus The Dolphins. This is actually a nice and strong “on-paper” match-up via the 5-step formula. Not to mention that the Dolphins are in top 10 in both allowing points to DE/Edges as well as DTs. Too bad the unit hasn’t performed up to par over all versus anything. So the green bye-week plays are just solid. 

Dolphins: Versus the Bills. Godchaux and Wilkins remain green bye-week plays again. And yes last week the Redskins didn’t allow anything to them as indicated. It will be the first time these two pretty well have been shut down. Here’s the thing, the Redskins decided to actually run the ball which messed with the formula. Something we will note going forward if they (Redskins) keep trending that way.

Patriots: Versus the Jets. As marked. But need to note that even if Simon came thru last week as a bye week play, he only did it with 48% of the snaps. This whole group would actually get a boost to solid if it wasn’t for the rotation that kills us. See for yourself…(You’ll find Collins with LBs, but he is only solid snap % guy. We slot him in as how they actually use him in that D. As an Edge rusher.)

LAST WEEKS Patriots DL Snap count

Jets: Versus the Patriots. All we can add is on paper it’s there, but in life we suggest look else where. The rookie Q. Williams is trending a bit.

West Notes:

Broncos: Versus the Chiefs. Thur. Night Chart (Click)

Chargers: Versus the Titans. As marked noting that if Jones plays he is a green bye-week play with “upside” if actually 100%. Nwosu likely depends on Ingram playing. Which he is looking promising via Wednesday’s DNP in practice report.

Raiders: Versus the Packers. As marked, and horrible on-paper match-up via the 5-step formula. And it doesn’t help that the Packers are currently bottom 1/3 across the board allowing points to DL/Edge rushers.

North Notes:

Ravens: Versus the Seahawks. As marked. And the green bye week plays carry over from last week and should translate nicely to this contest.

Bengals: Versus the Jaguars. Lawson showed he can produce via the match-up on paper. And the Jags offer that to the edge rushers. Thing is Dunlap has to be out. And last we seen it looks like he might be.

Browns: Bye Week

Steelers: Bye Week

South Notes:

Texans: Versus the Colts. Everyone has the up-side to manage the solid via the on-paper match-up formula.

Colts: Versus the Texans. As marked. And green bye week play Muhammad is risky, and depends on Houston playing. Muhammad would then have the “up-side” to solid.

Jaguars: Versus the Bengals. As marked, noting that Jones and Dareus would have been solid as well on-paper. But the rotation and possible lack of snaps can’t be trusted.

Titans: Versus the Chargers. Nice match-up for Casey and Landry on paper. And actually stronger for the edge guys. Too bad everyone is either questionable or lacking.
