WK7 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire IDP Dime Drop And Bye-Week Plays
October 20, 2020 No Comments Article, Dime Waiver Wire Gary Van Dyke

The WK7 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire IDP Dime Drop And Bye-Week Plays are all about getting that early jump on the completion in our leagues. The players listed are either undervalued, becoming more relevant, or simply just have an upside for bye-week plays. And as we list them we’ll have a summary that will help members decide if they are worth a hold or just a one-week play.

Short and sweet about our approach to these potential players that have something to offer at this time. Now that we are in-season and have accumulated data and trends concerning the NFL teams, we can gauge ahead and get the jump on who is who. A big part of this process is based on what we know and use in our IDP Start/Sits cheat sheet chart. And a lot of it is also knowledge-based by the author as he continues to run through every defensive unit’s players every week. The one thing users need to keep in mind is that is it is up to them to follow through with the normal start/sit charts later in the week for potential changes not available at the time of this publication. And By doing so the user will confirm or even may see a better option for their particular situation. 

We are looking for those deep players that do not have a high owned percentage according to The Tipster Leagues.

Looking for the Cornerbacks? There are always three streamable players listed in the CB Oddsmakers published on either Tuesday or Wednesday.

Notice: Some players may remain here for more than one week at a time based on ownership changes and their following week’s matchup.

Disclaimer / Warning / Read

These are deep dive waiver wire or bye-week players that are likely a free agent in your league for a reason. And although the are suggested plays for this particular week, there is always a risk of them not working out. And most waiver wire articles only have four to eight players they potentially suggest. But we take it deeper than that and will always try to suggest at least twelve. Hence, the larger the number the greater the odds more of them can or will miss. It is solely on the user to pick and choose who they may like to gamble on. Nothing in fantasy football is a lock, and waiver wire pickups are certainly pushing that fact to its limit.

With this said and from this point. We suggest the user do their own due diligence and select their player not only by availability but by their weekly averages. And as members always follow up with the start/sit charts for matchup strength and updated info in notes. These are early in the week and for the mid-week waiver wires. And things can change on a dime and owners will want to adjust to those strengths and changes.

NEW

There will be a change in the delivery, we will now try to forecast the floor of the player’s potential production based on his average output and matchup strength.

Inside Linebacker Special R.O.S Targets Edition

We are adding this section for the obvious rest of season targets. There were four players that have recently come into the opportunity to be decent viable plays if they stick. We’ll talk about them in two different ways and ask you to check out our latest @GettingDefensive Monday IDP Morning live as to why we are ranking them as we are R.O.S., first. Please note that this is a judgment call between myself (@TheIDPTipster) and my guest co-host Justin Varnes (@downwithIDP). We are speculating on the future potential roles and situations. Not on their future matchups and schedule strength, that’s’ next.

Note, we talk about using cornerbacks versus safeties for the first ten minutes or so.

R.O.S. Waiver Wire Order Rank

#1 Texans Tyrell Adams – #2 Giants Tae Crowder – #3 Eagles Alex Singleton – #4 Steelers Robert Spillane

 

The Obvious Four WK7 Strength Outlook
  • Steelers MLB Robert Spilland, owned in less than 1% of Tipster leagues and played the rest of the contest (53% of the snaps) in WK6 after Devin Bush tore his ACL. Assuming he’ll keep the job after a nice effort (5 tackles -1 assist – 1 tackle for a loss) in his favorable matchup versus the Browns his matchup on paper WK7 is barely solid versus the Titans. But there will be an upside to the situation as the opposing team’s test him.
  • Eagle WLB/SLB Alex Singleton, owned in less than 1% of Tipster leagues and he played well in his first contest as a full-time player with 89% of the snaps available. Starting because of injuries he impressed with 4 tackles and 5 assists in WK6 versus the Ravens. Assuming he played well enough to stick with a full-time role, his WK7 contest versus the Giants is really solid.
  • I.R. On 10/20 > Giants WILB Tae Crowder, owned in less than 1% of Tipster leagues and has averaged 80% of the snaps available over the last two contests as a starter next to Blake Martinez. In those two contests, he has recorded 9 tackles, 6 assists, and 1 fumble recovery for a touchdown. And note, as of right now he isn’t practicing with a hamstring injury. We do not know or have news yet on how bad it may be. Assuming he can play and again start in WK7, his matchup versus the Eagles is “just” solid.
  • Houston MILB Tyrell Adams, owned in less than 9% of Tipster leagues and has averaged 82% of the snaps available over the last two contests as a starter next to Zach Cunningham after Benardrick McKinney hit the I.R. In those two contests, he has recorded 12 tackles, 8 assists, 2 tackles for a loss, 2 passes defended, and 1 sack. His WK7 contest versus the Packers is barely solid on paper. But again there may be some upside considering his situation and teams may challenge him. Users can likely consider him “just” solid.

Inside Linebackers (normal)

  • Patriots ILB Ja is a carryover from WK6 and still only owned in less than 7% of Tipster leagues. He recorded his best IDP production on the season last contest and has averaged about 85% of the available snap counts over the last three contests. And his week 7 forecasted floor production range versus the 49ers is: 6 combined – 1 tackle for a loss
  • Titans MILB Rashaan Evans, owned in less than 7% of Tipster leagues and has averaged about 77% of the available snap counts over the last three contests. And his week 7 forecasted floor production range versus the Patriots is: 6 combined (Hard to believe he has fallen off the map this far, at one time he was a potential LB1 option)

Deep Edge Rusher 3-4 Outside Linebackers By Unit

Warning! Only suggested for deep formats with designated Edge Rushers or in real heavy sack format for general Linebackers. The user should not reach here if unfamiliar with the designation of the position.

  • Cardinals OLB Hasson Reddick is a carryover from WK6 and still only owned in less than 2% of Tipster leagues. He had an uptick (63%) in snaps in WK6 taking on more of a role with Chandler jones now on I.R. With that uptick he recorded his best game of the year versus the Cowboys. Recording 4 tackles, 2 tackles for a loss, 1 assist, 1 pass defended, and 2 sacks. And his week 7 forecasted floor production range versus the Seahawks is: 4 combined – 1 tackle for loss – .5 sack – 1 pass defended
  • N/A, we like to try and list two here. But after researching there isn’t any viable player to suggest that fits the criteria we are looking for.
