This article is part of our IDP Analysis series.
With rosters of all shapes and sizes, IDP advice can be a bit tricky, so the purpose of this article is to point out players whose value is elevated for the upcoming week. Some of these players will be superstars while others will be players found on many waiver wires. Whether you're streaming IDPs each week or have a stocked roster, this "one size fits" all approach will hopefully help most everyone find a weekly edge.
Josh Bynes, Deone Bucannon and Haason Reddick – Cardinals: The 49ers would likely prefer to not put their offense on the shoulders of C.J. Beathard, and this week they have no reason to, as they'll face a Cardinals' defense that's allowing the second-most rushing yards in the league. Expect Matt Breida and Alfred Morris to see plenty of rushing attempts while the Arizona LBs have a busy day piling up tackles.
Christian Kirksey, Joe Schobert and Jamie Collins – Browns: The Browns clearly have an emerging defense, and at times, they're downright nasty. However, their weakness is against the run, and they've seen the second-most rushing attempts of any team in the league. Don't think that this week's opponent, the Ravens, will shy away from testing them on the ground, which will keep the Cleveland LBs quite busy.
