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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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 SS/FS IDP Fantasy Football Easy Start/Sit Charts
Cowboys: Versus the Vikings. As marked noting that in this match-up Heath may have some “upside” if the vikings can run the ball like they have been. And also noting that Thompson did play nearly 60% of the snaps last contest versus the Giants. It was out of the blue so we’ll make note and wait it out.
Giants: Versus the Jets. This is coming up “just” solid. But every given match-up these two have some “upside” via their rolls on this defense.
Eagles: Bye Week
Redskins: Bye Week
West Notes: “Catch 22”
Cardinals: Versus the Buccaneers. Thompson’s are still in rotation, so we can’t go there for green bye week plays in this weak match-up on paper. The Bucs are bottom five in allowing points to the safeties. But Baker is Baker, and he never should be on the bench. His upside could end up strong.
Rams: Versus the Steelers. Another bottom five in points allowed to. But the roles of the safeties with the Rams defense can’t be held down. We’ll go with “just” solid. Real trick is that since John Johnson went to IR they have went with a weird rotation of who was the full time players. So coming out of the bye week, this is tough. And may hold some risk with one of the players. Our guess would be Christian. But again, that’s a guess.
Seahawks: Versus the 49ers. Great on paper. And Diggs has returned to practice on a limited basis. So, who is the odd man out, Diggs or Blair. Our best way to avoid this “catch 22” is hope that for whatever reason Diggs is out.
49ers: Versus the Seahawks. A just solid situation. And neither can be advised as green bye week players because the inconsistency of either player is off the charts.
Bears: Versus the Lions. As Marked. Noting that Jackson is again solid as a bye-week play this week.
Lions: Versus the Bears. With Tracy Walker already ruled out the rookie Harris is firmly a “just” solid bye week play as the formula indicates on paper. But with Wilson and the role he now plays with the defense with Diggs gone and Walker out he gets the boost. Not to mention that the Bears are top five in allowing points to the safety position. With that being said, Harris has some “upside” here.
Packers: Versus the Panthers. This on paper outlook is actually “barely” solid. But how the Packers use and depend on the safeties does hold some “upside”. With Amos questionable we put Redmond back in as an optional green bye week play. He is the known replacement when the Packers need one. Be sure Amos is out before going there.
Vikings: Versus the Cowboys. As Marked. Noting that Harris as a bye week play is “just” solid on paper, but holds some “upside” in this one.
Falcons: Versus the Saints. Huge warning out here. Before the bye last week and with the Falcons in flux, the indications are they brought Kazee (now listed as a cornerback in most sites) back into playing safety. And it was at the expense of Ishmael according to the snap counts. With this in mind we can’t trust any on paper results and went weak while stating avoid that situation. At least for this contest. We’ll also note that Allen on paper is “just” solid. But looks to have some “upside” considering the divisional contest.
Panthers: Versus the Packers. As marked.
Saints: Versus the Falcons. As marked and noting that Williams is marked solid, but on paper the match-up is strong. He can be inconstant often. But the formula does indicate it’s strong enough he should at the least be solid in the end. So there is some “upside” if the Falcons stick to the offensive script.
Buccaneers: Versus the Cardinals. In weeks seven and eight Edwards was benched to the point that he fell off our radar. This warning is that in week nine him and Adams went Adams 75% and Edwards got 25%. With the overall on paper match-up “just” solid other bye week options should be looked at first to be safe.
