The NFC DL/Edge WK5 Original Fantasy Football IDP Easy Start/Sit Charts
October 4, 2019 Comments Off on The NFC DL/Edge WK5 Original Fantasy Football IDP Easy Start/Sit Charts Article, Tactical Gary Van Dyke

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!

Easy Start/Sit Charts

Week Five

East Notes: 

Cowboys: Versus the Packers. Like to say, if Lawrence is going to break out or at least show up, it’ll need to be this week. Unfortunately with Quinn returning from SSPD, Quinn is the Edge Rusher getting to play the blind side. It is the normally the higher producing position as in terms of Edge Rushers. So via this match-up Quin likely has the “upside”, and Lawrence has the strong slot based on the match-up on paper. Fingers crossed.

Giants: Versus the Vikings. Even if the match-up on paper is solid for the Edge Rushers/OLBs, the rookie Ximines has seen a trend upwards in snap counts. So as of last contest all three of them only seen about 60% of the snap counts. Decreasing their odds individually.

Eagles: Versus the Jets. As marked. Graham is questionable but was trending to be a able to play we last checked. 

Redskins: Versus the Patriots. As marked. Patriots on paper are ranked in the bottom 1/3 in allowing points to the DLs. And the Redskins rotation doesn’t help our cause.

West Notes:

Cardinals: Versus the Bengals. Let’s just say on the field and on the match-up on paper that the Bengals are gift wrapping points to the DLs. And if you feel like watching  the injury situation up to game time the green deep bye week plays are very appealing. Last checked, Allen was DNP, and Suggs was added to the injury report. Marsh is only in-play securely if Suggs is out. So the safe early pick up would be Gunter. But honestly may be the least appealing. Still solid odds, but the other two would likely have more upside if they come into play. Petters as the nose tackle in the scheme just can’t be relied on.

Rams: Played Thur.

Seahawks: Played Thur.

49ers: Versus the Browns. It was tough to not “upside” these guys into solid. But on paper this patch-up just doesn’t cut it. The Browns are one of the least DL friendly teams out there in allowing points to defensive lineman. Playing it safe on this one. And didn’t even bother to list the couple of other DLS.

North Notes:

Bears: Versus the Raiders. It just wasn’t appealing enough on paper to boost Mack any higher. The Raiders are pretty darn good not allowing points to the defensive line or Edge Rushers.


Packers: Versus the Cowboys. Wanting to note that the Cowboys don’t allow much to the Edge guys. So the Smith’s are getting the benefit of doubt here. Additionally one of the Cowboys main OL is reportedly out and another is hurting. Where the Cowboys do allow solid production on paper is the interior line. Solid enough that Lower’s role has him as a deep bye week play. He is likely on your waiver wires right now.

Vikings: Versus the Giants. We basically have the exact situation as the “take” above on the Packers. Just stronger for the DTs. Putting Stephen in line with Lowery as a deep bye week play.

South Notes:

Falcons: Versus the Texans. Main stud Jarrett should be good to go, he has had the toe injury and played thru it. Had a hard time putting Takk and Beasley in as solid. But on paper it is solid (actually strong enough) to go there. Good luck with that. As in Davison and Bailey there is a lot of appealing deep bye week play. And likely both are on the waiver wire. If one has more appeal it is Davison versus his weekly fantasy points average. So suggesting he is “A” and Bailey would be “B” in order of going there.

Panthers: Versus the Jaguars. Need to note that Burns seen less snaps last contest. Reportedly because of the wrist injury. He is likely to play this week according to those same reports. They may keep managing his snap counts if the wrist is still banged up. Addison might be the preferred play here. But note that this match-up on paper is only solid for both of them on paper, no “upside”.

Saints: Versus the Buccaneers. Jordan should be good to go with the calf injury, he is just limited  via latest report. The Bucs are allowing upper solid points across the board to DLs. Onyemata gets the green deep bye week play because his fantasy average is the highest, but yet he is likely the least owned in most formats.

Buccaneers: Versus the Saints. As marked. Noting that Barrett gets his due respect to solid via his performance. In other words on paper this isn’t as solid match-up. But he has been pulling it off and no need to not rise it out if he plays. The groin injury has kept him out, but now has been upgraded to limited. That is something to keep in mind and keep an eye on.
