Howdy Sharkfans! Wow, several key IDP players are either hurt, on IR, or in the case of Deangelo Hall, out of work. With the playoffs looming on the horizon in a lot of IDP leagues, it is time to start shoring up your roster. Here are some Seadog recommendations to help you do that for week #10 and beyond.
DT – Ryan Pickett GB – Pickett used to be a solid IDP point guy for the DT slot, but he hasn’t done much to back that up this year. Green Bay’s DLs are starting to pick it up a little bit, so he might make a decent play at this stage in the season.
DT – Cory Redding DET – Redding has had three solid weeks in a row and I expect him to have a fourth with Detroit going against the Jaguars on Sunday.
DE – Darryl Tapp SEA – Tapp is going to give you a rollercoaster ride as far as consistency goes, but with Patrick Kearney out, Tapp should get significant playing time the rest of the year. Perhaps his numbers will solidify a little bit as a full-time starter.
DE – Vonnie Holliday MIA – Good ol’ Vonnie Holiday….it seems like he has been around this league forever. Vonnie could be a more than serviceable waiver grab right now as he looks to have some favorable match-ups the next few weeks. He won’t have huge numbers, but he’ll be consistent.
LB –Lance Briggs CHI – You shouldn’t be sitting Briggs, but he has been sporadic in the point production this year. It looks like he is getting cranked up again for another big spurt, so don’t leave him on your bench.
LB – Chris Gocong PHI – Gocong is a SLB which is usually the least desirable of the three linebacker positions, but he’s been picking it up a little bit lately. You could certainly do a lot worse at this point in the season.
LB – Kevin Bentley HOU – Zach Diles was lost for the year with a broken leg the other day. Bentley is slated to replace him and with DeMeco Ryans gimpy right now, Bentley could be a nice find right now. If you can take a flyer on him, then I would recommend it.
LB –David Bowens NYJ – David Harris is out for a couple of weeks due to groin surgery, so Bowens is going to replace him. I wouldn’t expect great numbers but he might be a good fill in for you the next couple of weeks.
LB – Wesley Woodyard DEN – D.J. Williams is out at least for four weeks, so the rookie Woodyard is going to step in for him. By the time this gets to print, the Denver game will be over, so this recommendation is more for grabbing him as a “handcuff” to Williams for the next few weeks…. He’s already racking up some nice stats against Cleveland halfway through the 3rd quarter….
S – Chris Hope TEN – Hope really cranked it up last week and has been solid all season. He deserves some props in the Seadog Report this week.
S – Kalvin Pearson DET – Pearson had 10 solo tackles last week for some great IDP point production. I don’t know how consistent he will be the rest of the year, but his schedule looks pretty good from a match-up perspective, so he is worth some consideration to add to your depth right now.
S – Yeremiah Bell MIA – Bell has been outstanding all season long. I like his schedule the rest of the way too. Keep on truckin’ with him in your line-up.
CB – Darrelle Revis NYJ – Revis is a great NFL cornerback, but that usually means lower IDP points because teams throw away from him. However, he just exploded last week with a huge all around game. He pretty much took down Team Seadog in The Wall last week…grrr
CB – Deangelo Hall FA – Hall has been an IDP stud at cornerback this year, but the Raiders just dumped him due to salary issues. He’s on a lot of waiver wires right now because of that. He shouldn’t be out of work very long, though and if he goes to a team like the Saints, he should continue some good point production the rest of the year.
Well, these are some of my recommendations for week #10, and, as usual, thanks for reading!
