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 Fantasy Football Easy 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.

Introducing “Deep” Bye Week Plays!

Your waiver wire thin? Looking for “upside” IDP plays? Look for that green guy and in deeper formats you’ll likely find a player that’s worth reaching for. Of course all bets are off any given Sunday. But we got the formula for that odds on Fantasy Football IDP edge!

Thursday Night Football
The Chargers versus The Raiders

Thursday , November 7th

Disclaimer: We do tend to side with caution on Thursday night charts. There is a whole lot of football to come on the weekends. So there needs to be clear cut reasoning applied
to avoid starting off in the hole.

Injury Report As Of Wednesday Morning

Chargers Notes: Warning…This is a divisional game. But “on-paper” the Raiders do not allow much to any given position listed.

ILB: As marked. If Perryman is out, Tranquill should see a decent uptick in snap counts. But that uptick ceiling would likely only be around the 60% range if we are lucky. Davis might see an uptick as well. He has been leading the ILBs in snap counts at an average of around 80%.

SS/FS: As marked. Feeling lucky? The Raiders are dead last in allowing points to the SS/FS. But, the Chargers do use alot of DBs on the field over the ILBS. So there is “upside” for Teamer or Watkins at the strong safety position. 

DL/Edge Rushers: As marked. As far as the DTs, the two normal starters are banged up and missed last week. And it’s another case of the Raiders somehow not allowing anything on paper worth testing the unit out overall. Same with Bosa and Ingram. But we don’t sit studs and that gives both of them the boost to “just” solid.

This is real tough this week. The “on-paper” has it in a catch-22. There are 6 teams on bye this week in the NFL. Goodluck if you have to go here with a Chargers player. Someone has to get the IDP production and this is picking with long odds on who exactly will.

 Raiders Notes: Not Much Better, as in the “ceilings” of the players on paper.

ILBs: As marked. Whiteheads going to be busy. As for Morrow, on paper it’s solid enough, as for him getting what is on paper on average is weak. Only reason he is marked solid is the fact again that six teams are on bye this week. Best case scenario, he is out and recently signed Compton gets the start. The odds will double that he’ll get it done. As it looks, Compton will likely replace Morrow soon enough anyhow. But the “safe” play this week until he does is only go with Compton if Morrow is ruled out. It should be watching the injury reports for up until game time.

SS/FS: As marked. If Harris plays he’ll have some “upside” to strong. The role he plays has him outperforming the “on-paper” most weeks. If he is out Joyner is solid enough “on-paper”. If Harris does play they do use Joyner as the third safety. Last contest he got 80% of the snaps as the other two went 100%. So either way he does offer solid enough bye-week play if you need to go here. Good luck there, he is hit or miss at times. This is a divisional game that very well could be a thru the sir shootout, he should be ok.

DL/Edge Rushers: On paper the chargers allow bottom numbers to the DLs. Ad that to the “talent” of the Raiders DLs and the misses more than hits, avoid them all.
