Week 2 IDP Rankings – Defensive Linemen
Photo By: Ron Chenoy US PRESSWIRE
Ahh the life of defensive lineman in the world of IDP fantasy football. Draft a top lineman like Jared Allen, expect big things, and get nothing to show for it opening weekend. Allen wasn’t he only top lineman on draft day with a disappointing week one, and we can bet many of them will turn things around this weekend.
Inconsistency is always a problem for this position but we have a few rookies that stood out last week. One is Chandler Jones of New England and another is Derek Wolfe from the Denver Broncos.
Jones may take some plays off (or at least it appears that way) but he knows when to turn it on. As long as he’s on the field (61 snaps, 89% last week) we should expect respectable DL2 production from the standout rookie.
Wolfe is a different player than J.J. Watt but I love his intensity and enthusiasm for the game. With defenses having to worry about Von Miller and Elvis Dumervil, Wolfe will benefit, especially if the offense can build leads.
Sean’s Watch List Week 2
– I want to see how Kamerion Wimbley and Derrick Morgan do against the Chargers offensive line. Both ends had respectable numbers last week, but they need to dominate on the edges to help this team pull of a victory on the road.
– Matt Shaughnessy had a decent game against the Chargers but I want to see him make a bigger impact in the pass rush. Hopefully, we will see this against Ryan Tannehill.
– Geno Atkins picked up right where he left off last year, and looks possibly even better. He will be up against Brandon Weeden, so if the rookie holds the football too long, we should expect Adams to pull off a sack.
