Injuries are starting to mount up. It’s not even the season-enders, but the piling up of weekly bumps and bruises really stresses most IDP rosters. Don’t be down on one-week solutions. Starting a throwaway over a zero week can often mean the difference between a loss and a crucial win.
Resurgent defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche missed this week. In his absence, Olsen Pierre played 51 snaps.
Another week, another reshuffled secondary. Brian Poole (37) moved back to the slot this week with Jordan Richards (47) playing strong safety. With 61 defensive snaps, neither is a good option right now but it’s a situation to monitor.
At LB, Foyesade Oluokon continued his march to playing time. He managed 33 snaps this week. He’s played more in every single game so far. He needs to be stashed in deep leagues.
Much of the debate this season has been about Patrick Onwuasor vs Kenny Young. On the evidence of the last two weeks, the answer is neither. Onwuasor played just 16 (of 80) snaps this week with Young on 20.
