Week 17 IDP Start’em Sit’em – Super Bowl Edition
Many IDP fantasy football leagues wrapped up last week but for some owners are still fighting it out into week seventeen. While you should stick with your main defensive players in the final week, you may be forced to go with another option because of injury or players resting for the NFL playoffs. Take a look at the options for start and sit for the final week and good luck.
DT – Tommy Kelly (Only start for defensive tackle position): The Raiders are heading out to Kansas City to take on the Chiefs for the final week of the season. Look to Tommy Kelly as a solid option for your squad this week as he posted a strong game against this team early in the season. The Chiefs’ plan on starting their regular group of players so Kelly will face the usual suspects.
DE- Calais Campbell @ 49ers: The Cardinals big defensive end Calais Campbell has been one of our regular options for start and sit this season. Campbell has been hot the past few weeks, and he should have a field day against the 49ers horrible offense.
DE- Jason Pierre-Paul @ Redskins: The young Jason Pierre-Paul has flashed his big play ability by getting to the quarterback throughout the second half of this season. Pierre-Paul will be a good roll of the dice this week as the Giants are taking on a team they dominated a month ago.
DE- Will Smith vs Buccaneers: The Buccaneers tend to play the Saints tough and Josh Freeman isn’t an easy man to take down. With solid protection from the front line, Smith should have a tough day racking up a productive IDP stat line to help you.
Curtis Lofton vs Panthers: The Falcons had a disappointing out come against the Saints on Monday night and are now forced to win this week to retain home field in the playoffs. Look for Lofton to disrupt as this group will look to its leaders to make plays and wrap up another win.
James Laurinaitis @ Seahawks: Look for the Rams to come out of the gates hot as they should wrap a division title against the Seahawks this week. James Laurinaitis has been hot of late as should have multiple opportunities to make plays and help your squad win a championship.
Karlos Dansby @ Patriots: Don’t look for Karlos Dansby to be a strong option for your squad this week as he failed to play against the Lions. Even if Dansby gets on the field, he could leave at any point, and you need more stability for the final week of the season.
Richard Marshall @ Falcons: With the Falcons pressed to win this week, they will have to throw the football, and that is good for Richard Marshall and the Panthers secondary. Look for Marshall to have a strong game and help your team take home the championship trophy.
Eric Berry vs Raiders: The last time Eric Berry played the Raiders, he posted two sacks and should have a field day against them this week. The Chiefs will start their regular players, and Berry needs all the experience he can get. Look for this young stud to continue his solid second half of the season.
Abram Elam vs Steelers: The Browns didn’t get much done against the Steelers last time around and Abram Elam hasn’t been a strong option of late.
