IDP Corner: TNF Week 14
Another divisional matchup, but one that’s actually interesting (which seems to happen every other week) this week. New Orleans has surprised with a defense that has slowed teams down when necessary. Meanwhile, Atlanta has equally surprised by winning in spite of their defense, which took 8 weeks to keep a team to or under 10 points. Separated by the Panthers in their divisional standings, the Falcons could make this the most interesting division with a win this week.
Players that are likely already owned or are already starting in your league: Cameron Jordan, Kenny Vaccaro, Vonn Bell, Marshon Lattimore, Craig Robertson, Deion Jones, Keanu Neal, De’Vondre Campbell, and Robert Alford.
Takkarist McKinley: Totaling 3 sacks over the past three weeks, and averaging 2 total tackles in that same time. Takk has been a more consistent week to week than Adrian Clayborn has since they both had horrible showings against the Panthers.
A.J. Klein: Besides 2 games (where he was injured in and then out due to that injury), Klein has been on the field for all defensive snaps this season. Both before and after weeks 10 and 11 Klein has been producing with a solid floor all season, if you are looking for some consistency in your LBs he would be a solid grab.
P.J. Williams: Grabbing over 90% of snaps in the past three weeks while filling in for Marshon Lattimore, and was a rather productive IDP player in that time. Lattimore looks like he might be returning tonight, but would be put on Julio Jones if that is the case, my thoughts are if he does actually play, he’ll need to be platooned with Williams, which I still think makes Williams the better option to play this week.
Good luck to everyone on your Thursday endeavors. And as always if you have questions feel free to reach out via twitter to me @decoylife or the other gurus @TFFGurus, @DaFantasyFather, and @TheFantasyBoys.
