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.
Anthony Hitchens, Reggie Ragland and Justin Houston – Chiefs: The Seahawks are all but certain to attack KC on the ground – not only is that what the Hawks do best, but it attacks the Chiefs weakness, which is stopping the run. Over the last five weeks, Seattle has given up the third-most tackles to opposing linebackers. Look for Chris Carson and company to have success while shortening the game, making this a great spot for the Kansas City LBs.
Preston Smith, Mason Foster and Zach Brown – Washington: Playing on their home field in a must-win game against a struggling defense, expect Derrick Henry and Dion Lewis to be the focal point of the Tennessee offense. There's also a great chance they'll be running to kill the clock in the second half of a likely win. In addition, the Titans have given up the third-most fantasy points to LBs over the last five weeks, so fire up the Washington LBs with confidence.
