IDP Chat Room

All original and proven IDP Fantasy Football Easy Start/Sit Charts are based on a five step formula method. This formula is used on an accumulate amount of information data, stats, trends and info. And of course the knowledge of reading these in the formula used. These formulas were under development for approximately seven seasons before being shared with the general public. And in that process the Charts can claim in the general area, on average,  of at least a 80% hit rate. Although in years past this has been tested and proven we have to keep in mind that in fantasy football it is always “any given Sunday”. 

The IDP Easy Fantasy Football Start/Sit Charts Relevance At Stake

Users of these charts should always keep certain things in mind when using these charts. 

  1. The fifth element of the five step formula used is the mind behind it’s innovation. So there is a human aspect to reading these results and the delivery.
  2. All input into these charts are raw at the beginning of the seasons until the core information catches up with that seasons data, stat, and trends. The first three weeks on average are basically a warm up period. As some end of the year information from the prior season is included. This is until on average around week four of each season we have established the current season’s own material. This in turn is the strength of the charts. And just in time for the important bye-weeks. 
  3. Never sit a stud! As a disclaimer and delivery we need to always keep in mind that sitting a known” stud” over a player that is not isn’t advisable. The charts are meant to split the IDP hairs among the level of players talent. And it is never advisable to “reach” for a player in play if those “IDP hairs” are minimal. 
  4. These Charts are based on match ups versus talent of said players when it is boiled down to it. And trusting the charts do take a commitment. That is not included in our delevery and soley on the users.

NFC ILB IDP Fantasy Football Easy Start/Sit Charts

Week Eight

East Notes:

Cowboys: Bye Week

Giants: Versus the Lions. As Marked. The warning is that Mayo dropped big time in snap counts last week. Clear down to 46%.

Eagles: Versus the Bills. Bradham is already out. Edwards was the only one of the remaining three to not get snap counts worth anything. Gerry was 100% and KGH went for 85%. This is actually a strong match-up. Caution with rotation or a possible change is the only reason for the solid. 

Redskins: Played on Thursday.

West Notes:

Cardinals: Versus the Saints. Hicks and Reddick are real “iffy”. If one or both are out then Walker will come into play.

Rams: Versus the Bengals. Reeder went to 35% in snap counts last contest. Ebukam went up. No need to trust whatever might be going on if you don’t have to. Littleton is the only safe and very strong play.

Seahawks: Versus the Falcons. And we leave this again according to the ownership % we see on him……..

As marked. And Kendricks still remains a viable bye week play according to his % owned that we see. He just might be on that waiver wire in a contest.

49ers: Versus the Panthers. As marked.

This just popped up after I got charts done for NFC ILBs.


I guess that if he was out, you likely would see Goodson get the full time gig and be productive by default at the least. Again as it was marked it is not a great match-up on paper, and only Martinez gets the boost t solid based on talent. I’d try other Bye Week guys listed with better match-ups for the higher ceiling. But I always play it safe.

And this today makes that a pointless post…lol

North Notes:

Bears: Versus the Chargers. As marked.

Lions: Versus the Giants. Actually a strong on paper match-up. But bumping the breaks as Taval has peaked in his percentage and share of the snap counts. Davis remained around his 97% and Taval cut into Jones time a little with both getting around 80%. This is due to packages they ran. So the green bye week plays do hold some risk. We’ll need to again see how this trend works out.

Packers: Versus the Chief. As Marked. Chiefs remain at the bottom of the pile allowing points to the ILBs. Martinez is the only one to trust this contest.

Vikings: Play Thursday.

South Notes: 

Falcons: Versus the Seahawks. As Marked.

Panthers: Versus the 49ers. As marked.

Saints: Versus the Cardinals. Just when we thought it was safe the Saints are screwing with playing time again. Alonzo went up and Klein fell hard. It’s not worth seeing who gets what this contest at this stage of the season.

Buccaneers: Versus the Titans. Weak on paper but a boost to solid based on talent. They should end up solid enough if you need them.
