Fantasy Football WK3 IDP NFC Interior Defensive Lineman Start/Sit 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 / NFC 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.

NFC North

Bears Interior D-Lineman

Akiem Hicks
2.5/5
Roy Robertson-Harris
1.5/5
Bilal Nichols
1.5/5
Eddie Goldman (O)
0/5

Advice/Note: Hicks has surfaced as the only interior lineman to target on this squad. That isn’t shocking, but we’d sure like to see another in the IDP pool getting more than 50% of the snaps. Hicks got around 70% which is ideal and shows in his production. On paper, it’ll be tough versus the Falcons based on the up to date info and how the formula works out on paper. We can’t count on the upside this time around, so “just solid” is our best call.

Lions Interior D-Lineman

Da'Shawn Hand
2.5/5
Danny Shelton
2.5/5
Nick Williams
2/5
Damon Harrison Sr.
1.5/5

Advice/Note: It’s the Lions, or should we see the “Patriots” of the NFC, and with Nick Williams back in after missing week two (shoulder) we need to be cautious of the possible increased rotation. Just know that the main two marked, are just “barely solid” versus the Cards on paper because of the situation.

Packers Interior D-Lineman

Kenny Clark (?)
2.5/5
Dean Lowry
1.5/5
Tyler Lancaster
1/5
Montravius Adams (?)
0.5/5

Advice/Note: Clark is trending upward in some reports at the time of this publication. And reportedly the groin injury is lingering and he isn’t 100%. So even though he is a beast and the only viable interior play for the Packers, if he is in versus the Saints, we might want to still look elsewhere if possible. The Saints just are not allowing much production at all to the interior D-lineman on paper. Hurt and on a possible snap count limit isn’t any way to face the Saints, so we are going barely solid.

Vikings Interior D-Lineman

Jaleel Johnson
2/5
Jaylin Holms
2/5
Shamar Stephen
1.5/5
Armon Watts
1/5
Michael Pierce (O)
0/5

Advice/Note: It’s nice to see after needing to play it safe last week that we had some clarity (maybe) out of this squad. We’ve rearranged the list in terms of production versus snap counts from the first couple of contests. It’s Holms and Johnson who is making a bit of an impact. So we’ll apply the formula in their favor a bit and go from there versus the Titans this week. And unfortunately, thats not looking so hot again this week on paper. But is a great chance to see if one or two overachieve and we can think about adding some upside to their consistency going forward.

NFC south

Falcons Interior D-Lineman

Grady Jarrett
2.5/5
Allen Bailey
1.5/5
Tyeler Davison
1/5
Marlon Davidson
0.5/5

Advice/Note: As normal, Jarrett got what we expected via the formula, and that matters when we add in his upside based on his consistency. And versus the Bears, we’ll roll with what we know on paper. Which is solid, and we know he carries more upside than we can give credit for in the formula.

Panthers Interior D-Lineman

Derrick Brown
2.5/5
Zach Kerr
1/5
Bravvion Roy
0.5/5
Kawann Short (D)
0/5

Advice/Note: We were waiting to see if the rookie Brown could outplay the “on paper” result of the formula versus the Bucs in week two, he did not, not even close. So for now we’ll assume he is human and just roll with the results on paper versus the Chargers, which is solid enough this contest.

Saints Interior D-Lineman

David Onyemata (?)
2/5
Sheldon Rankins
1.5/5
Malcom Brown
1/5
Margus Hunt
0.5/5

Advice/Note: The rotation with this group is just mindblowing and has cost IDP owners trying to get some sort of gauge out of them. We can say that they were solid in 2019 when the matchup was right on paper. But so far this year, the deep rotation among all the players has cost us. And even if Onyemata got his last week in terms of production and snap counts, he didn’t in week one. So we are playing this way cautious about the results we have via the formula.

Buccaneers Interior D-Lineman

Ndamukong Suh
2.5/5
William Gholston
2.5/5
Vita Vea
1.5/5
Rakeem Nunez-Roches
1/5

Advice/Note: Suh showed up big week two after nothing in week one, and Gholston still managed to get some after a string week one. Our results versus the Broncos reflect that, but with the “on paper” results are not all that, it’s not much to look at in terms of trusting it if we have other options. So we will roll with the word “barely”.

NFC East

Cowboys Interior D-Lineman

Gerald McCoy (O)
0/5
Trysten Hill
2/5
Tyrone Crawford
1.5/5
Antwaun Woods
1/5
Dontari Poe
0.5/5

Advice/Notes: Fact, in the last four seasons, the Cowboys have not had a reliable week to week interior lineman worth using unless it’s just right in a bye week play. And even then the matchup on paper would have to be just right for some breadcrumbs. Their roles are to clog the holes and open up lanes for the linebackers and the edge rushers. So until further notice, this message is going to sit right here until something breaks and no matter the matchup.

Giants Interior D-Lineman

Leonard Williams
2.5/5
Dexter Lawrence
2.5/5
Dalvin Tomlinson
2/5
B.J. Hill
2/5

Advice/Note: And wow, after a few seasons of building this unit it is starting to chime in regularly. Here’s to hoping they can continue to show up versus a tough “on paper” matchup with the 49ers. We’ll mark as we see the results, just keep in mind that although they are hitting as a group, it’s still been touch and go on who leads the squad in production each week. With that being said, it’s Lawerance who has had the best average from week one to two. And it’s best t consider the guys marked solid, as just solid until we see what they can do again in week three.

Eagles Interior D-Lineman

Fletcher Cox (?)
3.5/5
Javon Hargrave
2.5/5
Malik Jackson
2.5/5
Hassan Ridgeway
2.5/5

Advice/Note: Unfortunately, Cox is reportedly a real game-time decision. He would be our best target this week versus the Bengals O-line that is currently gifting points to the interior lineman. We also figured in the lack of upside if Cox is in because he’ll be hurting from the apparent lingering stomach injury. If he is out, all the others will get a boost, especially Hargrave who was out in week one and had limited snaps in week two. But he is our “catch 22”, because either way it goes with Cox, he’ll likely have a nice jump in playing time and that’ll leave one of them on the outside looking in.

Washington’s Interior D-Lineman

Jonathan Allen
2.5/5
Matt Ioannidis
2.5/5
Daron Payne
1.5/5
Tim Settle
1/5

Advice/Note: Unfortunately,  this is another interior line that’s been hampered by a rotation. The new coaching staff, scheme, and rotation have taken a couple of top interior IDP players and limited them. Allen and Ioannidis are holding steady, but not as steady as we could have had or would have liked. And facing a stout browns O-line this week isn’t helping our thinking that it will change soon. So just consider we added the two players upside and that lands both at “just” solid.

NFC West

Cardinals Interior D-Lineman

Corey Peters
2/5
Jordan Phillips
2/5
Angelo Blackson
1.5/5
Zach Allen
1/5

Advice/Note: Just stop right now and go read the note on the Cowboys interior D-lineman. Now apply that to the Cardinals squad, but add a touch of upside, so far this season. With that said, just roll with how it’s marked versus the Lions. And as of this publication, Phillips looks like he’ll play.

Rams Interior D-Lineman

Aaron Donald
3/5
Michael Brockers
2.5/5
Morgan Fox
2/5
Sebastian Joseph-Day
1.5/5
A'Shawn Robinson (O)
0/5

Advice/Note: Say it with me, “Donald is one of, if not the best interior D-Lineman in the NFL, and being shut down in week two was a HUGE fluke!” With that said, we roll with the formula results on paper versus the Bills this week. Oh, also noting that Brockers is barely solid in this one.

49ers Interior D-Lineman

D.J. Jones
2/5
Javon Kinlaw
1.5/5
Kevin Givens
1/5
Kentavius Street
0.5/5
Solomon Thomas (IR)
0/5

Advice/Note: At this point, the rookie Kinlaw has been far from impressive, despite seeing the most snaps of anyone in this group, in terms of production. And with huge injuries across the board in week two, they’ll need him to get his act together really fast and help get the job done. Of course, IDP owners want the same. And believe it or not, this contest versus the Giants isn’t the time to test those waters on paper. Givens just came into the picture when Thomas went down early last contest. It’ll be interesting to see what his role will be going forward and what he can do on this once powerful squad. Betting the 49ers are now wishing they never traded Buckner to the Colts.

Seahawks Interior D-Lineman

Jarran Reed
2.5/5
Poona Ford
2.5/5
Bryan mone
1/5
Anthoney Rush
0.5/5

Advice/Note: Reed is dealing with a lingering back issue this contest, strike one. He has not produced to any level that helps us trusting him, strike two. Overall after a hot start a year or so ago he hasn’t been consistent since, strike three. With that said, we will roll with the one paper results and nothing more until something gives, which doesn’t look like it will long term at this point.

And it is too bad, because this contest versus the Cowboys is hot, but we have to temper our exspectations at this point.
