With the bye weeks in full swing, we’re going to be forced to ‘plug and play’ more IDPs than usual and sometimes that can pay off for us. This week, the Lions and Saints are on bye and it gives you an opportunity to add players a week before you need them. Here are a few players I’m targeting this week where available.
Jerome Baker, LB MIA
It’s pretty difficult to get your piece of the pie on this defense with Kiki Alonso, Raekwon McMillan, Reshad Jones, Minkah Fitzpatrick, and T.J. McDonald but Jerome Baker is getting it done over the last three weeks. He has games of nine, ten and seven total tackles while adding two sacks against Cincinnati this week while only playing 61%, 80%, and 55% of snaps respectively. He’s a must add for me this week if he’s still available in semi-shallow leagues.
