October 30, 2020 No Comments Article, IDP Tactical Charts Gary Van Dyke

Welcome to the WK8 Fantasy Football NFC Safety Ranking IDP Start/Sit Charts presented by GridironRatings.com Where the only original and proven IDP start/sit chart “cheat sheets” via The IDP Tipster can be found. And yes, there are a few imitators, but there is only one true original five-step formula IDP tactical tool. A formula with a well-tested history for over a decade and a proven high-hit rate in IDP play well before sharing it with the public four years ago. And all of that history and relevancy is only available here for G.R. fantasy football family members.

Needing to split those IDP hairs between two or more players with the same color code? Besides our great Player Ratings located in the main menu, our Oddsmakers IDP tactical tools were originally intended to do just that. And they are located on our The IDP Tipster member page or perhaps even on our main article page.

Week 8 / NFC Safeties

NOTICE – Chart Key Marking Fine-Tuning Update

This was not applied to all the charts yet but will be by WK6. We are using a new STAR method this year that needed a better user-friendly feel.

Avoid Weak
1/5
Barley Solid
2/5
Firm Solid
3/5
Really Solid
4/5
Firm Strong
5/5

Questionable (?)  –  Out (O)

Doubtful  –  (D)  –  Injuried Reserve (IR)

NFC North

Bears Safeties

Eddie Jackson (?)
2.5/5
Tashaun Gipson
3/5
Deon Bush
1/5
Sherrick McManis
0.5/5

See New Chart Key Above -Advice/Note: As marked versus the Saints. According to the on-paper five-step formula, Gipson has the upside. And we could have suggested him as an borderline waiver wire pickup this week.

Lions Safeties

Tracy Walker
3.5/5
Duron Harmon
2.5/5
Jayron Kearse
1/5
Will Harris
1/5

See New Chart Key Above -Advice/Note: Consistency in snap counts versus production is why we have who is marked as they are versus the Colts.

Packers Safeties

Adrian Amos
2.5/5
Darnell Savage (?)
2/5
Will Redmond
2/5
Raven Greene
1/5

See New Chart Key Above -Advice/Note: As marked versus the Vikings. Amos has “upside” we didn’t add in because he hasn’t been completely relevant all season. Well, until last week and out of the blue. We’ll need to see a little more and a few weeks in a row before we get excited. The Packers have had some LB problems for some time now, that’s worked in Amos’s favor.

Vikings Safeties

Harrison Smith
2.5/5
Anthony Harris
3/5
Josh Metelus
0/5
Brian Cole
0/5

See New Chart Key Above -Advice/Note: Either could over or underachieve versus the Packers. it all really depends on what the Packer do on offense and what the game flow is set at.

NFC south

Falcons Safeties

Keanu Neal
0/5
Ricardo Allen
0/5
Sharrod Neasman
0/5
Damontae Kazee (I.R.)
0/5

See New Chart Key Above -Advice/Note: Played Thursday.

Panthers Safeties

Jeremy Chinn ILB/DB
0/5
Tre Boston
0/5
Sam Franklin
0/5
Juston Burris (IR)
0/5

See New Chart Key Above -Advice/Note: Played Thursday.

Saints Safeties

Malcolm Jenkins
2.5/5
Marcus Williams
3.5/5
C.J. Gardner-Johnson
3.5/5
D.J. Swearinger
0/5

See New Chart Key Above -Advice/Note: It was weird via the on paper five-step results, but as marked versus the Bears. So much so we two of them as bye week waiver wire pickups. And the other just barely made just solid.

Buccaneers Safeties

Antoine Winfield Jr. (?)
3/5
Jordan Whitehead
3/5
Mike Edwards
1/5
Andrew Adams
0.5/5

See New Chart Key Above -Advice/Note: The way they are used is what earned them their marks versus the Giants. Just know that upside got them marked as they are and it’s giving or take in the game flow.

NFC East

Cowboys Safeties

Xavier Woods
2.5/5
Donovan Wilson
2.5/5
Darian thompson
1/5
Steven Parker
0.5/5

See New Chart Key Above -Advice/Note: First, we are leaving the next “quoted” note from last week.

“Indeed it does look like Wilson is going to keep the starting strong safety role. He got 87% of the snaps last contest with Thompson cleaning up the remaining 13%. And Wilson is way overachieving, which is great. But this week versus Washington we are going to pump the breaks a bit, it just doesn’t work out well enough to mark anyone higher. But if things stay the same as the last couple of games, we will say Wilson has upside as the SS.”

Second, Wilson did start and Thompson played zero snaps at safety. And with this said, it’s why we have marked what we have with caution.

Giants Safeties

Logan Ryan
2.5/5
Jabrill Peppers
2.5/5
Julian Love
2/5
Adrian Colbert (?)
0/5

See New Chart Key Above -Advice/Note: The season’s history versus the on-paper results has us marking them “just” solid. And it is really risky heading into this contest. We advise looking elsewhere if you can because it is that “iffy”.

Eagles Safeties

Rodney McLeod
2.5/5
Jalen Mills
3/5
Will Parks
2/5
Marcus Epps
1/5

See New Chart Key Above -Advice/Note: Mills was in a past waiver wire pickup article we put out. And he wasn’t included this week versus the Cowboys. All due to potential discrepancies on paper. But if you are in a deep format looking hard, you could do worse finding a guy this week to plug-in.

Washington’s Safeties

Deshazor Everett
0/5
Kamren Curl
0/5
Troy Apke
0/5
Landon Collins (IR)
0/5

See New Chart Key Above -Advice/Note: Bye Week.

If you are in a super deep format and looking hard for a potential safety replacement or bye week play, consider Apke. He was replaced as the free safety by Everette recently. But with Collins on I.R., they’ll be digging deep in Washington. And Apke fits the bill, pending the matchups and if they go there this bye week or not.

NFC West

Cardinals Safeties

Budda Baker
0/5
Deionte Thompson
0/5
Chris Banjo (?)
0/5
Jalen Thompson (IR)
0/5

See New Chart Key Above -Advice/Note: Bye Week.

Rams Safeties

John Johnson III
4/5
Taylor Rapp
2.5/5
Terrell Burgess (IR)
0/5
Jordan Fuller (IR)
0/5

See New Chart Key Above -Advice/Note: Due to certain circumstances with the Dolphins changing QBs. We claim an indifference in the five-step formula we use to get the charts right.

With that said, it is Rapp we aren’t really positive with. And Johnson carries his own on-time game upside.

49ers Safeties

Jimmie Ward (?)
3/5
Jaquiski Tartt (?)
3/5
Marcell Harris
1/5
Tarvarius Moore
1/5

See New Chart Key Above -Advice/Note: Everything is based on those safeties in question playing versus the Seahawks. If not, it trickles down to the backups. And they did perform as we suggested the would last week when both Ward and Tart were out.

Seahawks Safeties

Jamal Adams (?)
2.5/5
Quandre Diggs
2.5/5
Ryan Neal (CB)
1/5
Lano Hill (IR)
0/5

See New Chart Key Above -Advice/Note: We have marked them accordingly. The matchup is actually really strong, but trust issues and potential timeshare with Adams returning sets the tone. And don’t forget, on paper, Neal is better than Diggs.
