AFC DL/Edge WK10 Original IDP Easy Start/Sit Charts
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.
- 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.

AFC Edge Rusher / Defensive Line IDP Fantasy Football
Easy Start/Sit Charts
Bills: Versus The Browns. As marked as on-paper the Browns allow the interior DLs the IDP production. They are rock bottom via the formula allowing to the edge.
Dolphins: Versus the Colts. The solids are “just” solid this match-up on paper. And Biegal remains an option as an edge rusher. He was reportedly hobbled early last contest, but isn’t on the injury report as of now. His snap count remains strong and he has a large role with the defense at this time.
Patriots: Bye Week. Again reminding members that Van Noy has a new OLB/Edge role in this defense and he’ll remain being listed here.
Jets: Versus the Giants. As we mentioned last week after losing all their viable inside linebackers and trading away DT Leonard Williams, all were “flier” bye week plays. If you felt lucky. That held true. What did happen is that Copeland manned one of the inside linebacker positions and did great.
As long as ILB Hewitt (questionable) doesn’t take the field Copeland remains a strong play this week as a LB or Edge.
As for the rest of the green bye week plays, it’s a matter of how they snap counts go again this week. Feeling lucky?
Broncos: Bye Week
Chiefs: Versus the Titans. As marked. Just like last contest it is a matter of who is healthy and plays. It should be well worth watching the injury reports as the Titans “gift” points to the defensive lineman/edge rushers every week.
This unit remains green bye week plays if they are still FAs at this time.
Chargers: Played Thursday.
Raiders: Played Thursday.
Ravens: Versus the Bengals. As marked. And adding that Ferguson has just recently got the playing time. Being so early that he has he is risky as a green bye week play. Last contest and sorta out of the blue he did get the second highest amount snap counts among the regular DLs. He went for 63% as Pierce went 66%. And the indications are he was rotating with the OLB/edge rushers as well as the DL/DEs. Unless a desperate call has to be made it is likely best to avoid this situation until it plays out more.
Bengals: Versus the Ravens. As marked and noting that the solids are “just” solid. Hubbard and Dunlap get their boost based on talent. Atkins is the only true strong play on paper.
Browns: Versus the Bills. Ass marked. And noting any of them have “upside” to strong. But the on paper indicates solid across the board. Last checked (Wed.) Vernon is not practicing.
Steelers: Versus the Rams. As marked. An on-paper dream match-up unless the Rams have fixed the OLs while on bye-week last weekend. Hargrave’s ownership is down. Indicating he could be available as a green bye week play. Would only expect “just” solid if going here.
Texans: Bye Week
Colts: Versus the Dolphins. An actual “strong” across the board match-up on paper via the formula. The only thing keeping that from being marked is the inconstancy of each player at times and/or the snap counts.
Stewart had been a huge part of the rotation as you can see in the snap counts below. That big of a jump for Stewart is notable, as well as what he did with the extra time on the field. Earning him a green bye week play option. But with risk considering how this has played out. With six teams on bye we need to note all potential bye week plays. And the on-paper match-up is worth noting him here.
Jaguars: Bye Week.
Titans: Versus the Chiefs. As marked and nothing a couple of things. For Casey and Jones this match-up has upside to strong. And Jones bye week value may hinge on Casey playing this week. He was out last contest as Jones had a great game with plenty of snaps. If they both play Jones might just be solid as a result and lose his upside to strong.
Landry is “just” solid via the match-up on paper. His talent and snap counts have him secure. The others should be OK, but the rotations limit them a lot. Hence the weak on-paper results.
