IDP Waiver Wire Week 8: Rolling Bye Week Targets
Welcome to the Tipster’s IDP Waiver Wire Week 8: Rolling Bye Week Targets. Where he puts pen to paper and applies decades of fantasy football knowledge to work. We’ll never know what the Tipster is coming up with next to innovative fantasy football again. So sit back and let’s see what he has in store for us with his 2021 defensive player rolling waiver wire tracker tool. The Tipster loves to dive deep into the waiver wire for bye-week purposes when it really counts. So for the first few weeks, these defensive players may or may not be available in your league. It would all depend on the format and how deep the lineups are. With this said, here are some target options for this week’s waiver wire.
To mean anything to IDP fantasy football owners a player has to have consistency. And that is the one thing we need to figure out during our waiver wire process in this rolling chart. At least if we want more than a bye-week play. So we’re going to combine consistency with opportunity and resent success together. Along with player scenario and talent. With that said, here’s the rule of thumb every IDP owner should approach the waiver wire with. At least if you are wanting to dive deep and use the “vanilla” players at the same time.
” A Player has to be consistent enough for at least three weeks to consider holding on to them. And we do mean in a row performance that made an impact. No exceptions and no mercy in evaluations.”
- Our target dates are results on Monday and the new Waiver Wire add-ons Tuesday.
- MSR: Position Match-Up Strength
- ROS: Rest Of Season Outlook
- A player that failed can always return to our list if the scenarios are right and they are worthy of starting the three-week cycle again.
- Watch for some ( * ) by player names. Some might deserve a follow-up located below the rolling waiver wire list.
- Going forward we will not give players a pass if a minor injury during a contest hurt their progress. 90% of the time they’ll never work out. And if they were to make an impact again we’ll simply add them back and start over. We run a tight ship when determining ROS results. And along the way find serviceable bye week and injury replacements as a bonus.
- Players are added after they catch our attention. So their week one is the week they just played and produced accordingly to catch that attention.
- Remember, we only add players that have at the least a solid MSR (Match-Up Strength) for the next contest. So if you were looking for names of overachievers from last weekend’s games. They likely didn’t make the cut on MSR or SCR (Snap Count Rating). Or even NFL life reasons that we’ll let play out.
NEW Week 8
We will now start updating the MSR on all rollover players on Mondays.

- David Long*, Trey Hendrickson*, Kyle Dugger*, Xavier McKinney* – Will remain options on our rolling waiver wire one more week, and the likelihood of them being free agents evaporates.
- Brandon Jones will remain an option after hurting his ankle in week 7. His production despite the lower snap count is still notable and backed up by his previous contests. Be sure to watch the injury report. And understand at this point he is only the deepest of options.
- Anthony Walker*, Kamu Grugier-Hill*, Azeez Al-Shaair* will all likely have SCR and FPR (Start/Sit Chart Formula) upside based on their roles when our base information is updated on Tuesday. Be sure to double-check MSR status in our charts later this week.
- Josh Norman* and Emmanuel Moseley* are cornerbacks. They too should be checked on in the cornerback charts this week. And because we do not have Tipster Takes on them, that chart will be updated by tomorrow evening.
IDP Waiver Wire I.R. Tracker
Why would we want to track defensive NFL players on injured reserves? There are a couple of good reasons off the top. First, at least in deeper formats. Managers knowing when a potential IDP producer is coming back into play can be sneaky. Players get dropped in some leagues that other injured players took priority.
This leads us to the second thing. And that’s in deeper formats or on rosters struggling to pick up a player off the waiver wire one week early. After all, we all can’t be first in line for the free agents each week. Putting managers way ahead of their league mates. Not to mention that if you miss out on that week’s active waiver wire options, you still have a viable target to stash.
- No Covid Tracking.
- Not listed in any particular order within pick-up status.
- Be careful using a player directly off the waiver wire. Not always played 100% the first week back.
- Hot means the player is likely to have a role worth something coming off the wire sooner than later.
- A “Hottish” pick-up status indicates a move early has a “Hot” upside.
- Notable indicates likely low priority IDP Target for the waiver wire.
- Pick-up status henges on a player being activated by the team. Mr. Long will track that for you week to week.

Did you Know…
A “breakout” player is a fantasy football person who has been ineffective or marginal in the past. Then suddenly becomes a fantasy football stud one year. A “sleeper” is a term used mostly during drafts. The term refers to players that fantasy managers believe are set to have a breakout season. The word “sleeper” comes from the idea the player is being overlooked. And so is their potential of breaking out that season. – Google
