IDP STUDS AND DUDS: Week 3 IDP Start/Sit

Taylon Smith DAL tackles Saquon Barkley NYG

Jaylon Smith's performance is showing up in the box score as well—he has tallied 14 total tackles and a sack in two games, including 10 total stops in last week's win over the Giants. With Sean Lee looking iffy to play Sunday with a bad hammy (yes, Sean Lee is hurt…stunner), Smith could be on the verge of his best game yet in a plus matchup with the Seahawks.

START/BENCH: Week 3

WR Keenan Cole JAC

In addition to his ludicrous one-handed grab, Keelan Cole's showing against the Tennessee Titans included seven catches for 116 yards and a score. The youngster is emerging as the No. 1 receiver for a Jaguars passing game that just might be a lot better than we thought...

IDP WAIVER WIRE: Week 2

LB Cory Littleton LA Rams

Cory Littleton was all over the place against the Oakland Raiders. In addition to 11 solo tackles and two assists, Littleton had a second-half interception of Raiders quarterback Derek Carr. If you are a regular reader of my IDP articles here at Fantasy Sharks you may already have rostered Littleton. If you haven't, do so post-haste.

IDP STUDS AND DUDS: Week 1 IDP Start/Sit

LB BJ Goodson NYG

After lighting up the stat sheet to the tune of 18 total tackles in Week 1, B.J. Goodson's 2017 season was an injury-filled mess. While speaking with Howie Kussoy of the New York Post, Goodson blamed those struggles on returning too quickly. “The biggest thing with the injury was coming back too early.”

START/BENCH: Week 1

LB Jarrad Davis DET

In case you were wondering, that one team that gave up more fantasy points to running backs is the dumpster fire-in waiting that is the Buffalo Bills. This has the feel of a game the Ravens should win by two touchdowns or more, which means plenty of second-half work for Collins against Buffalo's 29th-ranked run defense.

START/BENCH: Week 17

QB_Kirk_Cousins_WAS_1

Fresh off a solid effort against Denver, Cousins closes the season against a Giants team allowing the third-most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks in 2017. And despite the fact that 7-8 Washington has been eliminated from playoff contention, head coach Jay Gruden told the Associated Press there’s been no thought of sitting the free agent to be.
