DFW-IDP Rankings Week 9

Remember to always check the injury reports before finalizing your rosters. The new NFL injury rules are creating a lot of issues for figuring out who is playing and how hurt they are. If you have any last minute roster questions please feel free to ask @BillLatin.

Defensive End

1-Khalil Mack OAK vs DEN… He is the “Mack-Daddy” of #IDP right now

2-Leonard Williams NYJ @ MIA… Supposedly Tannehill will be running more.. Good luck with that!

3-Muhammad Wilkerson NYJ @ MIA… Figuring out who will go off in NY is rough.  Both DL1

4-Everson Griffen MIN vs DET…  He is a locked DL1 coming off a great week last week.

5-Aaron Donald LA vs CAR… Panthers O-line is not stellar.  Should pick up some tackles also.

6-Frank Clark SEA vs BUF… Knocking on the door.  Snap count over 80% last week

7-Jason Pierre-Paul NYG vs PHI… Playing at a high level, but not elite

8-Sheldon Richardson NYJ @ MIA… Odd man out but still a low end DL1

9-Fletcher Cox PHI @ NYG… The most steady Eagle IDP player

10-Cameron Jordan NO @ SF… Been rough this year.  Should have good week vs bad SF offense

11-Cliff Avril SEA vs BUF… Lack of passing game will be tough sledding for the Bills

12-Joey Bosa SD vs TEN… My first time sliding him into low end DL1 rank.  Due for good game

13-Ndamukong Suh MIA vs NYJ… Which Fitzpatrick will we see?

14-Devin Taylor DET @ MIN… Should have a nice floor but not a big ceiling

15-Ezekiel Ansah DET @ MIN… Hard to sit him.  He should be gaining steam.

16-Linval Joseph MIN vs DET… One of the best DT’s in the league

17-Robert Quinn LA vs CAR… He has to bounce back at some point.  Doesn’t he?

18-Marcell Dareous BUF vs SEA… Seahawks O-line is rough.  Lots of rush attempts.  Solid day

19-Kawaan Short CAR @ LA… Game script could alter this.  Close game gives Short a nice outing

20-Jurrell Casey TEN @ SD… Boom/Bust

21-Cameron Heyward PIT @ BAL…  He’s back and should be a safe DL2

22-Brandon Graham PHI @ NYG… Has been a bit quiet but has a decent floor

23-DeForest Buckner SF vs NO… I am bias to him.  He is going to be great

9-CJ Mosely BAL vs PIT… A little nervous about coming off injury, but great matchup

10-Zach Orr BAL vs PIT… Has outperformed CJ.  Should have a nice floor

14-KJ Wright SEA vs BUF… “Bam” “Kaboom”

15-Mark Baron LA vs CAR… He has been a bit boom or bust

16-Craig Robertson NO @ SF…  An uninspiring option that just gets it done
