AFC ILB WK16 Original IDP Easy Start/Sit Charts

by | Dec 20, 2019

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. 

  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.

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!

AFC ILB IDP Fantasy Football Easy Start/Sit Charts

Week Sixteen

East Notes: 

Bills: Versus the Patriots. As Marked. Both or either have “upside” and likely can end up strong. 

Dolphins: Versus the Bengals. As marked. Noting that with McMillan now on IR that Eguavoen gets a boost. But that can be a risky assumption.

Patriots: Versus the Bills. As Marked. Noting Hightower has some upside on paper.

Jets: Versus the Steelers. As marked.

West Notes: 

Broncos: Versus the Lions. As marked. 

The Next Three teams ILBs should be avoided this Championship Week.

Chiefs: Versus the Bears. As marked. Not only can’t the situation be trusted with the on paper results, but the Chiefs did yet another total shift in playing time that can not be trusted last contest.

Chargers: Versus the Raiders. As Marked. Just like the Chiefs did last contest the Chargers changed up playing time by adding Perryman back into the mix. Davis should be OK and via the on paper match up be solid enough. But again, there is a lot of risk here thinking the Chargers won’t play around with who gets what on the field when they are way out of the playoffs.

Raiders: Versus the Chargers. As marked. Noting that the Raiders knocked Whitehead down from a 100% snap count guy last contest to 60%. And instead out of the blue made Compton a depth player to a full time starter. Whitehead owners may not have noticed because Whitehead did get enough stats to just say he had a down game. But over all, this situation is an avoid in a week that championships are on the line in most leagues.

North Notes: 

Ravens: Versus the Browns. As marked. There is still no full time ILB here getting enough playing time worth risking.

Bengals: Versus the Dolphins. As marked. There was a shift in playing time last contest, but between the two and the match up they should be solid enough, or “just” solid. Another one of those risky plays. The Bengals are way out of the playoffs and some new depth faces could see some playing time here adding to that risk.

Browns: Versus the Ravens. As Marked. Assuming the Browns want to upset the Ravens the two should still see their normal roles. There was no indication from last contest that their was a shift in playing time.

Steelers: Versus the Jets. As Marked. Not only was there another shift in playing time between Bush and Barron last contest, but the on paper results are terrible. The Jets are rock bottom in allowing points to the ILBs. We can not suggest going here if you can find other options.

South Notes:

Texans: Versus the Buccaneers. As marked. And we don’t have a suggested play in place of McKinney that we should trust.

Colts: Versus the Panthers. As Marked. And assuming they roll with the normal. If Walker is ruled out then Okereke is in play. As long as they do what they have done in the past when Walker missed time. The odds are they will. And this match up on paper is stronger across the board than just the solid marks for those two.

Jaguars: Versus the Falcons. As marked. Again assuming they roll out as they have been via the last contest. Calitro is new on the scheme here for us. But if he can go he should be solid enough in this contest, and actually could have some upside.

Titans: Versus the Saints. As marked. On paper this is a weak match up for the ILBs to produce. But if the roles remain the two get their dues and should produce enough to be considered “just” solid.
