Hi everyone. Welcome back to the season. Week one was amazing just to have real football back but as the pigskin high wears off, this is a great time to be nabbing the IDPs your leaguemates haven’t figured out yet.
As always, the single biggest driving factor for IDP production is playing time. So after one week, we can scoop up the players who were on the field a ton and ignore those who produced big numbers from limited snaps. Every week, I’ll be trying to find those hidden gems for you.
The Ravens blew the Bills away and as a result, spent the second half giving playing time to many deeper options. In particular, all the outside linebackers managed to get on the field. Za’Darius Smith (36), Matt Judon (36), Terrell Suggs (31), Tim Williams (23) and Tyus Bowser (20) did nothing at all to tell us who is the man to own. We’ll need to wait another week.
Journeyman defensive back Rafael Bush will get some hype with a good statistical day but he played just 31 snaps – mostly in the slot. He’s one to leave alone for now.
