Week 12 IDP – DL Rankings


Chris Clemons vs. Redskins –

In the world that is defensive linemen, a good pass rusher can have a horrible stretch of games, but he’s only one matchup away from an explosion and that was the case for Chris Clemons last week. Clemons was actually on my sit’em list last week, not because of his tasty matchup against the Rams, but more because of his failure to get much done in recent weeks.

Like Jason Babin, Clemons made me look foolish for doubting him as his big-play ability stepped up with three sacks, and he’s clearly a start against Rex Grossman at home. Clemons relies on the big-play to get his points, but the same can be said for many linemen in IDP leagues.

Usually when we see a good pass rusher breakout for the kind of performance Clemons had last week, we see them go off for a stretch of games with sacks. Chris Long is an example, as he has a sack in all three games since his breakout three sack performance against the Saints. Get Clemons in the lineup as a low end DL-1 this week.
