The NFC ILB WK5 Original Fantasy Football 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 Easy Fantasy Football Start/Sit Charts Relevance At Stake
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 ILB IDP Fantasy Football Easy Start/Sit Charts
Cowboys: Versus the Packers. As we talked about last week’s charts, Jaylon Smith did indeed continue seeing a reduction in snap counts. But it wasn’t as much as week three. And on the flip side Lees seen more than Thomas this time around. Those two are best left on the bench if your looking for a bye week play.
Giants: Versus the Vikings. Avoid this whole situation this week if you can. Tae Davis is actually trending to being able to play. But the Vikings aren’t allowing much to the ILBs anyhow. And there are no clear indications after Connelly going on IR who will be starting. And Olgetree is not practicing at the time we are publishing this.
Eagles: Versus the Jets. As marked. But with caution on Brown. KGH did return last week and as we stated likely wouldn’t be a full time player off the top coming off injury. But he did out snap the third LB Gerry. And all indications coming out of the Philly area is that the DC says KGH’s snap count will slowly increase as he gets his “game legs” back. This makes Brown a risky play from here on out.
Redskins: Versus the Patriots. As marked, just noting that Holcomb again only received about 50% of the snaps. With that being said, it’s just too risky at this point to trust what they’ll do with him any given contest. In this case I’m leaving the link below from last week to explain what is going on.
Cardinals: Versus the Bengals. As Marked. One of the better ILB match-ups according to the 5-step formula.
Rams: Versus the Seahawks. As Marked. Littleton remains a “match-up” proof type play any given contest. And this divisional game has “upside” to be one of his better productive games.
Seahawks: Versus the Rams. he match-up on paper wasn’t as marked until we consider and add in the divisional portion. The Rams and Seahawks are going to grind this out. And Kendricks has maintained the snap counts and production to be a “deep” reach bye week fill in here.
49ers: Versus the Browns. As marked. And like we mentioned for the Cardinals this one is “upper strong” scenario on paper.
Bears: Versus the Raiders. Not the most solid match-up on paper. But we have to consider Trevathan and Smith’s roles. And for everyone that went and picked up Kwiatkoski. You’ll still want to keep him on speed dial, but this just was reported today.
We should note here, it says “he” intends to play. And we found nothing at this time confirming that from the organization yet. The match-up isn’t as solid on paper as we mentioned. So not real sure if Kwiakoski holds too much value to anyone other than Smith owners at this point.
Lions: BYE WEEK
Packers: As Marked, noting that B.J. Goodson had been trending upward a little bit. The he hit a wall and was basically schemed out of the last contest and only seen 11% of the snaps. So much for that, we can’t trust this situation.
Vikings: Versus the Giants. As marked. The match-up on paper actually has it’s “upside”. But we went solid due to the fact that now that the Giants has had a QB they have been trending downward in allowing points to LBs. Barr is coming off his only contest he didn’t produce well. In three contest he has been healthy he has went 6 solo tackles and 1 sack, then 5 solo and 1 asst., and then the flop at 2 solo last week. At least in ESPN he is only owned in 4.4% of the standard sized league. Again he is green as a deep sleeper if your looking for bye week “upside” this week.
Falcons: Versus the Texans. This match-up on paper by itself isn’t great at all. But the struggling Falcons overall has pretty well kept Jones match-up proof. And Campbell as well. With him we just need to keep riding the hot hand.
Panthers: Versus the Jaguars. As marked. And noting that a previous IDP DIME Drop we did might be finally gaining some ground. Carter seen about 40% of the snaps last contest. Now that is not much. but it is what he did with those opportunities that has use keeping an eye on him.
Saints: Versus the Buccaneers. Klein’s got a lot of upside trending to be a perfect deep bye week play if needed. His snap counts have increased dramatically this last few contests and season. In those last 3 contest we’ve seen him produce as well. And we know ESPN is not actually a favorite any more with most owners. But we’re rolling using them as an example. He is only owned in .5% of the standard leagues right now according to their %ROST data. In week the last 3 contest, and noting only 1 of them favorable, he has 17 combined tackles with 1 tackle for a loss and a forced fumble. And technically this match up should actually have him as a strong play with Davis versus the match-up on paper as well as the snap counts.
Buccaneers: Versus the Saints. As marked and noting that reportedly the rookie White is going to play this week after coming off an injury. The warning here is someone between Minter or White is likely taking a snap count hit. A situation worth avoiding.
