NFC DL/Edge WK6 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.

NFC Edge Rusher / Defensive Line IDP Fantasy Football
Easy Start/Sit Charts
Cowboys: Versus the Jets. The Eagles enjoyed great production last week across the DLs versus the Jets. And on paper the Jets remain top dogs in allowing points to the DLs. Who knows, maybe Lawrence will finally have a good contest. The warning on the green bye week plays is Crawford. If he plays again he might take a few snaps from someone.
Giants: Versus the Patriots. On paper, it would likely be best just to walk away here.
Eagles: Versus the Vikings. As marked. Graham is likely off the questionable list by the time this is published. Be sure to check that out.
Redskins: Versus the Miami. As marked noting that Payne was almost a green bye week play. But his owned % was just a bit high to think he might be on the waiver wire. It might be worth a look. And Sweat got “upside” to solid, so think about other plays first. While old man Kerrigan just can’t be trusted.
Cardinals: Versus the Falcons. Jones was “upsided” to solid in this on-paper match-up.
Rams: Versus the 49ers. As Marked. We’ll make sure this contest exactly who replaces Mathews until his jaw heals in a few weeks.
Seahawks: Versus the Browns. First we will cover the elephant in the room. Yes the 49ers feasted versus the Browns OLs last contest. But the “on-paper” remains the same. The Browns OLs aren’t as bad as they looked in that contest. Not even close to it. So besides this reminder that Reed is coming back the following week. And a great wire pick up to stash now. We’ll mention that Clowney got bumped up with his “upside” coming off his last contest. But is really just barely there. Other “solid” options should be considered.
49ers: Versus the Rams. Noting that we only listed the players with meaningful playing time at this point. Armstead is a green bye week play according to % owned. And Ford was marked weak as he has been dealing with a knee issue and isn’t getting the snap counts when he can play. It would be too risky inserting him.
Bears: Bye Week.
Lions: Versus the Packers. First we will note that we’ll see Kennard now as a edge rusher. Which is what he is designated as in many sites using that designated position. After Jarrad Davis returned from injury Kennard assumed his natural role. An with his % owned and this match-up on paper he is green as a solid bye week play. All the interior defensive lineman are mark * because of the unknown snap counts coming out of the bye-week. As well as the formula “on-paper” results not positive enough even if we had a clear idea.
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.
Falcons: Versus the Cardinals. Noting two things. Jarrett is almost match-up proof and gets his respected bump to solid. But keep in mind that this is not a good “on-paper” match-up overall for the interior defensive lineman of the Falcons. The second thing to note is that we will not take McKinley (Takk) or Beasley off of weak. At least not until they show they can they can live up to a basic match-up. In this case this week the match-up on paper is great for the outside edge guys. But they have had a couple this year and done nothing with those favorable contest for use.
Panthers: Versus the Buccaneers. Technically we could have marked Poe and McCoy as deep bye week plays. But overall they haven’t earned our trust there. The match-up on paper is a good one, but it is crunch time. So we don’t advice going there unless your desperate. As for Burns the warning is that Bruce Irving started over him last contest. And received around 20% more snaps. Irving did nothing with his time on the field and Burns had one great “play-making” type of production. So that warning is likely just that, a warning. But one to keep in mind.
Saints: Versus the Jaguars. As marked via the formula on paper match-up. And a note that Davenport came up big last week, but so did his playing time because Hendrickson was out. The treat of Hendrickson at this time is the only reason Davenport is not strong.
Buccaneers: Versus the Panthers. On paper this isn’t a good contest for the Bucs DLs/Edge rushers. And the only reason after Barrett showed he was human last contest he is solid is based on the last contest versus the Panthers. In week two he recorded three combined tackles and three sacks. The odds are likely 50/50 or less he can pull this off again this time around.
