IDP Lineup Decisions - Week 11
Everson Griffen DL2 vs CHI
I really like starting players after their bye week. Even if the player hasn’t been dealing with an injury publicly they’re all beat up with the normal wear and tear of the NFL.
Griffen had the bye last week. He’s also posted at least one sack in his last five games. Jay Cutler holds the ball too long and the Bears are a train wreck.
Even if Griffen’s impressive sack streak comes to an end, he should still come through in the tackle department. He’s posted at least six combined tackles in three out of his last four contest. That’s an impressive number for a defensive lineman.
Geno Atkins DL2 vs NO
Atkins always seems to end up on the border each week. Last week he came up small but I’d still roll him out again especially if you need a defensive tackle.
For general defensive linemen leagues he’s barely inside the top 24 so hopefully you have better options. But if the bye weeks are still an issue I would use Atkins as a boom or bust play against the Saints.
