The WK1 Fantasy Football Rankings Defensive Lineman IDP Start/Sits cheat sheet charts contain all the interior defensive lineman in both NFL defensive schemes.

If you are looking for names like Joey Bosa, Nick Bosa, or Danielle Hunter…

Those are defensive ends in the NFL’s 4-3 defensive scheme and are now located with the 3-4 schemed Outside Linebackers in the new Edge Rusher charts. So if you do not see your players name, and unsure as to why. They likely can be found there, where we apply an even deeper formula to get these weekly start/sits right for IDP sack-heavy formats.

Week 3 / AFC Interior D-Lineman

Attention, Please! As mentioned in the examples real in-depth Advice/Notes are an option when they are needed. And considering that the Edge Rushers opposition in the NFL, for the most part, is stable, users will start noticing that those notes and such will start diminishing as we go.

Reminder, this is the last week the IDP Tactical Tools like the Start/Sit Charts will be free to non-members. we hope you decide to join us as the up to date data is just now about to peek as those so important fantasy football bye-weeks are about to start.

AFC NORTH

 Ravens Interior D-Lineman

Calais Campbell
2.5/5
Derek Wolfe
2/5
Brandon Williams
2/5
Justin Madubuike (?)
0.5/5

Advice/Note: Nothing new to add, other than it’s going to get tougher versus the Chiefs this week via the on paper formula results.

Bengals Interior D-Lineman

Geno Atkins (O)
0/5
D.J. Reader
3/5
Mike Daniels (O)
0/5
Christian Covington
2.5/5

Advice/Note: Reader has been getting it done to a nice degree. And on paper versus the Eagles, it works out on paper in his favor. Just keep something in mind, as we did when we went thru our formula. The Eagles shut down the Rams DLs in week two after making the Washington team look like Allstars in week one. And that includes Aaron Donald was held to one tackle. Whether it was game scheming or whatever, it’s very hard to shut down Donald.

 Browns Interior D-Lineman

Sheldon Richardson
3.5/5
Larry Ogunjobi
2/5
Jordan Elliott
1/5
Vincent Taylor
0.5/5

Advice/Note: Richardson bounced back big in week two versus the Bengals poor O-line. And it might not be as easy, but it’s a favorable matchup on paper versus the Washington Team this week. Somehow Ogunjobi didn’t get his piece of the pie versus the Bengals, we’ll mark it up to all the other Browns DLs were having a day and he just came up on the short end of the stick that contest.

Steelers Interior D-Lineman

Cameron Heyward
3/5
Stephon Tuitt
2/5
Tyson Alualu
2/5
Chris Wormley
1/5

Advice/Note: Until Tuitt shows us he is 110% healthy after hitting I.R. in 2019, we aren’t going to be able to give him any upside in the results of the formula. And as for owners out there seeing what Alualu did versus the Broncos, not to take away from his great game, but he did it in just 43% of the snaps. And without knowing if that’ll grow to a more sustainable and trusting amount, we can’t add any upside to his results yet. But who knows, with Tuitt apparently struggling, but still played 79% of the snaps, maybe there will be some changes made. Oh, and Wormly, he fell all the way to about 15%. Our safe target is as normal, Heyward versus a decently friendly production allowing O-line of the Texans. 

AFC south

Texans Interior D-Lineman

J.J. Watt
2.5/5
Brandon Dunn
1.5/5
P.J. Hall
1/5
Charles Omenihu
1/5

Advice/Note: It’s going to be real tough for Watt versus his little brother’s team (Steelers) in week three. But being who he is and figuring on a pride effort, he carried his own upside into the results on paper.

Colts Interior D-Lineman

DeForest Buckner
4.5/5
Denico Autry
3/5
Grover Stewart
2.5/5
Sheldon Day (IR)
0/5

Advice/Note: On paper, it doesn’t work out on paper much better than facing the Jets.

 Jaquars Interior D-Lineman

Taven Bryan
0/5
Abry Jones
0/5
Timmy Jernigan
0/5
Davon Hamilton
0/5

Advice/Note: Played Thursday and/or the matchup is located on the Thursday Edition of the charts.

Titans Interior D-Lineamn

Jeffery Simmons
2.5/5
DaQuan Jones
2/5
Jack Crawford
2/5
Matt Dickson
0.5/5

Advice/Note: This group as a whole has to step up, until it does, we’ll go with nothing but the base results of the on-paper formula. And even if it is fairly favorable versus the Vikings, we may want to consider seeing it before believing it. We need consistency out of Simmons, and soon. And someone is likely to overachieve here this contest, but it’s a big risk to assume so.

AFC East

 Bills Interior D-Lineman

Ed Oliver
2.5/5
Vernon Butler (Q)
2.5/5
Quinton Jefferson
2/5
Harrison Phillips
2/5
Star Lotulelei (O)
0/5

Advice/Note: We would love to figure this out on paper straight through with no “catch 22”. But according to our snap counts, Oliver, Butler, and Phillips all played less than 50% of the snaps. Hard to believe considering Oliver and Butler actually did well in week two versus the Dolphins. Just keep those snap counts in mind as you see the designated marks.

Dolphins Interior D-Lineman

Davon Godchaux
0/5
Christian Wilkins
0/5
Raekwon Davis
0/5
Robert Nkemdiche
0/5

Advice/Note: Played Thursday and/or the matchup is located on the Thursday Edition of the charts.

 Patriots Interior D-Lineman

Lawrence Guy
2/5
Adam Butler (?)
2/5
Deatrich Wise Jr.
2/5
Derek Rivers
1/5
Byron Coverts
1/5
Nick Thuman
1/5

Advice/Note: We did see some separation in snap counts week two among this interior squad. And thank goodness we marked them cautiously based on the huge timeshare from week one. Because no one did anything notable versus the Seahawks. If it matters, Guy and Winovich took the big jump in snaps with 71% and 75%. But we are not removing names just yet and assuming things have leveled out. because knowing the Patriots, this has a good chance to flip flop in week three versus the Raiders.

Believe it or not, because two players played in week two that didn’t play in week one, and two from week one sat out, we could add more names to this list.

Jets Interior D-Lineman

Quinnen Williams
2.5/5
Henry Anderson
1.5/5
Steve McLendon
1/5
Folorunso Fatukasi
0.5/5

Advice/Note: And WOW! Williams broke out big last week versus the Colts, and we mean big. He had something like seven tackles, two sacks, and a forced fumble against a tough normally stout 49ers team. You might have heard about the contest, the one that the 49ers were devasted with injuries across the board? Yep, that one and Williams thrived in it. Now we would just like to see it again, even 1/2 of that versus the Colts in week three. We need consistency and a little less rotation would be nice too.

AFC west

 Broncos Interior D-Lineman

Jurrell Casey
2.5/5
Shelby Harris
2.5/5
Mike Purcell
2/5
Dre'Mont Jones
1.5/5

Advice/Note: Going with what our on paper results indicate, noting, it’s going to be tough versus the Bucs. And this one truly could go either way on upside versus downside, pending what the Bucs do in terms of a game plan.

Chiefs Interior D-Lineman

Chris Jones
2.5/5
Derrick Nnadi
2/5
Tershawn Wharton
2/5
Khalen Saunders (IR)
0/5
Mike Pennel (O)
0/5

Advice/Note: With injuries hurting this interior versus the snap counts and the fact they will need to mix and match some defensive ends inside to get their rotation right, just focus on Jones week two versus the Chargers. Who in the last four contests, since 2018, has managed to make an impact in three of those contests. The on-paper results already have his upside added, so don’t add any, but who knows what he could pull off.

Chargers Interior D-Lineman

Linval Joseph
2.5/5
Jerry Tillery
2/5
Damion Square
0.5/5
Justin Jones (IR)
1.5/5

Advice/Note: We aren’t going to get too excited after a couple of combined tackles were made versus the Chiefs last contest. It’s awful early in the season to go here, even if on paper the Panther is offering a nice amount of production to the interior lineman thus far. Joseph has shown a touch of consistency but so far it’s translating into a future bye-week play if the matchup is right. Who knows, maybe we see a bit more by then out of him.

Raiders Interior D-Lineman

Johnathan Hankins
2/5
Maurice Hurst
2/5
Maliek Collins
2/5
Daniel Ross
0.5/5

Advice/Note: And just like these players are being left on the waiver wire in leagues, we’ll leave the same marks versus the Patriots. At a quick glance, the three main starters have played a total of about 210 snaps between them. And in that time they have recorded about 8 combined tackles and one sack for core IDP scoring. That amounts to about one play made every 23 snaps, there is a reason these guys are likely on all waiver wires out there.
