Week six was a quiet one for the IDP rookies unless your name is Devin Bush, although some key injuries could mean playing time and more opportunity to step up. The defensive linemen have been largely underwhelming, particularly Quinnen Williams and Ed Oliver, but the immensely talented group will step up this season.
Josh Allen, DE JAX
38 (88%) snaps 1 solo tackle, 1 assist, 1 sack
Allen continues to see playing time. He now has four sacks on the season and should finish close to double-digit numbers in the category. Expect little else statistically. He has hit opposing quarterbacks eight times total and has 31 combined tackles, but his value lies in big-play scoring leagues which reward sacks highly. There is always the danger of his designation being switched to linebacker which in turn would hamper his value. He is a sell candidate for me. If you can get good value after a big week, cash in.
Nick Bosa, DE SF
44 (83%) snaps 1 assist
Week six was quiet for the younger Bosa. The 49er defense harassed the Rams all day and Bosa got extra attention from the Los Angeles offensive line. He is still one of the front-runners for Defensive Rookie of the Year with three sacks and nine quarterback hits in only four games played.
