IDP Waiver Wire - Week 9
by Bob Miller
Week 8 is now behind us. We now see how these NFL defenses look. We see now who’s playing and who’s not, which players are playing in certain situations, and who is making a name for themselves on defense. I’m here to tell you which IDP players to target for week 9 moving forward.
These players points are according to the Dynasty Pros IDP scoring system below:
Jonathan Greenard, DE, Houston Texans (74.00)
Greenard has been on fire to say the least. Three weeks ago against the Indianapolis Colts, Greenard recorded the team's lone two sacks. Two weeks ago against the Arizona Cardinals, he had 4 total tackles, 2 sacks, and 2 tackles for losses. This past Sunday he had 3 tackles, a tackle for loss, and another sack. He has 17 total tackles, 7 sacks, 8 tackles for loss, and a forced fumble since Week 3. He is averaging 12.33 fantasy points per game. Go get him before it’s too late.
Josh Allen, DE, Jacksonville Jaguars (64.00)
What a game for Josh Allen on Sunday. He dominated the Seattle Seahawks with 6 tackles, 2 sacks, and 4 tackles for loss. That was good for 25.50 fantasy points according to our scoring system. Allen is averaging 9.14 fantasy points a game, and is a player we need to be paying attention to. He has 19 tackles and 4.5 sacks on the season. He has the potential to move into the top tiers of fantasy defensive ends. I'd grab him cheap right now before it's too late.
Christian Wilkins, DT, Miami Dolphins (62.00)
Defensive Tackles don’t normally put up good fantasy points, but there’s always a few that stand out. This past Sunday he had 6 tackles and 2 tackles for loss. That was good for 12.00 fantasy points. Wilkins is putting up solid numbers with 25 tackles, 2 sacks, 6 tackles for loss, and a forced fumble. With as many fantasy points as Aaron Donald, Wilkins is worth a pickup.
De’Vondre Campbell, LB, Green Bay Packers (99.00)
Don’t look now, but De’Vondre Campbell is 3rd in fantasy points at linebacker this season, and only 1.5 points from being number 1. Campbell had another solid game this past Sunday posting 7 tackles, 2 tackles for loss, and a sack. That was a nice little 15.50 fantasy point day. This season he has 50 tackles, 1 sack, 2 forced fumbles, 2 interceptions, and 3 tackles for loss. Averaging 12.38 fantasy points per game, he is a must add. Hopefully he is available.
Demario Davis, LB, New Orleans Saints (88.00)
Age is just a number, just ask Demario Davis. The 32 year old is having himself one heck of a fantasy season. He has 37 tackles, 3 sacks, and 9 tackles for loss this season. He is averaging 12.57 fantasy points per game and should be picked up immediately if available. .
Foyesade Oluokun, LB, Atlanta Falcons (77.00)
Oluokun is becoming a tackling machine. Sunday was just another day at the office against the Carolina Panthers.. He had another great game posting 16 tackles. He is likely available on the waiver wire. Averaging 11.00 fantasy points per game he should be picked up.
Kevin Byard, S, Tennessee Titans (78.50)
Byard had another solid day against the Colts by putting up 4 tackles and 3 passes defended. He is the #2 fantasy safety this season with 28 tackles, 4 interceptions, a forced fumble, and 10 passes defended. The loss of Derrick Henry will affect the Titans offense substantially and should lead to a lot more time on the field for Byard and that defense. Scoop him up if you’re lucky enough to get him.
Kenny Moore, CB, Indianapolis Colts (81.50)
Moore makes the list again, because he continues to be a rock-solid IDP every week. This past Sunday was no different. Against the Titans, he racked up another 9 tackles and 2 passes defended. Those 16.00 fantasy points was another good day for the cornerback. Averaging 10.19 points per game at cornerback puts him only behind superstar Trevon Diggs. Moore should be owned everywhere.
Marcus Maye, S, New York Jets (52.00)
Marcus Maye continues to be a fantasy stud. This past Sunday was no different. Against the Cincinnati Bengals, Maye had 5 tackles and a tackle for loss. His season to date total isn’t impressive due to missing two games, but he is averaging 10.40 fantasy points per game this season. Like I said last week, you’d be silly to leave him on the waiver wire.
