WK7 Waiver Wire And Bye Week IDP Dime Drop Play Results
October 26, 2020 No Comments Article, Dime Waiver Wire Gary Van Dyke

The WK7 IDP Dime Drop Waiver Wire And Bye Week Play Results are just that, a recap of how the players did. We base these off our 32 teams IDP Start/Sit Chart Cheat Sheets formula by simply looking ahead early in the week. And if there is anything that can be hard to hit on, it’s picking up players when we really need them to perform. This is just a way to keep track of the hit and miss rate of these players via the IDP Dime Drop Waiver Wire And Bye Week Plays articles.

The Rest of this article is a duplicate, word for word of the original. Which will also be unlocked at the time of this article release. As some may know we are members first with The Tipster’s IDP content for fantasy football. And this is one of many pieces of content he provides each week. We will also note this is not a high priority piece, so if adequate time isn’t there and it looks like it will interrupt the rest of the week’s schedule, it will not be published. But the original IDP Dime Drop Waiver Wire And Bye Week Plays article will be unlocked for general viewing.

From This Point On…

From this point on, all that’s been added is the player’s stats for the contest they were suggested for. It is up to the user if they decide via future charts and such if the player is worth holding. Stats are recorded early on, and for the purposes of this article, are recapped from this Gridiron Redraft Invitational league on Myfantasyleague.com. Any corrections or discrepancies are due to the fact they may not be official.

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.

The Obvious Four WK7 Strength Outlook

Note: Look for Five-Step Formula “take” highlighted in ORANGE in the notes in this section. We had set this “obvious” section up differently, which can be seen in the original article HERE. It is why it’s formatted like it is in our IDP start/sit charts for our GR members, which can also be seen HERE. And are published later in the week with a more fine-tuned approach. Also noting, this waiver wire / bye-week and the AFC / NFC linebacker start/sit chart IDP content was free this week to non-members. Week 6 was Twitter appreciation week so there were a few pieces of content open to the general public.

  • Steelers MLB Robert Spillane, 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.
  • Spillane Week 7: 2 tackles – 1 assist
  • 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.
  • Singleton Week 7: 5 tackles – 1 assist
  • 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.
  • Sent to injured reserve until at least week ten with a hamstring injury on 10/20.
  • 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.
  • Adams Week 7: 5 tackles – 6 assist – 1 tackle for loss 
Inside Linebackers (normal)
  • Patriots ILB Ja’Whaun Bentley 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
  • Bentley Results: 8 combined
  • 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)
  • Evans Results: 5 combined – 1 pass defended

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
  • Reddick Results: 5 tackles – 6 assists – 3 tackles for a loss – 1 sack
  • 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.
