Week 4 IDP – DL Rankings


Will Smith @ Jaguars – 

After serving a two-game suspension Will Smith came back against the Texans and posted six tackles. This week he should pickup his first sack of the year going against a rookie quarterback in Jacksonville. The Saints will get off to a big lead early allowing Smith and company room to blitz, and that is exactly why I have Smith as a top ten option and Sedrick Ellis as a top thirty linemen to start this week.

Justin Tuck @ Cardinals –

One of the better defensive linemen in IDP over the past few years, Justin Tuck is suffering from ailments, and although I have him listed as a top ten this week, if he should have limited practice on Friday, you might want to go with another player. Tuck is an elite player when healthy, but like so many Giants this year, he’s banged up and is likely to see a reduction in his normal amount of snaps per game.

With Beanie Wells coming off a hamstring injury, the Cardinals are likely to put the ball in the air often, as the Giants offense will put points on the board. If Tuck is feeling good but the end, of the week, opportunities will be there for big plays. Look to Jason Pierre-Paul as a top five option once again, as he continues to take advantage of Osi’s knee injury.

Greg Hardy @ Bears –

The Bears are still having big problems pass protecting for Jay Cutler, and while Charles Johnson is a weekly top ten option, look to Greg Hardy as a respectable DL-2 play this week. Hardy will likely have his ups and downs but in a matchup like this, it’s too good to pass on if you’re in need of an upside option.
