DFW-IDP Week 15 Player Rankings 

As featured on the IDP-Blitz Podcast

It’s playoff time! In a lot of cases your options are limited due to injuries. I have highlighted some players that I think could outperform or bust (underperform) relative to where I have them ranked. Two teams have triple threats- Seattle and Jets. It is very difficult to decide who will flourish. I like both of their teams matchups this week. I have underlined some of my favorite matchups this week that I think could be high ceilings for those players.

Remember that DB is one of the hardest positions to forecast. When in doubt go with secondary teams that are going against prolific pass attacks where Vegas has the spread high. In addition, if their team is a favorite the opposition will often be coming from behind and passing the ball. I like to go with floor over ceiling with DB’s.
