IDP Lineup Decisions - Week 2
Sheldon Richardson DL2 vs GB
Richardson had an outstanding rookie season but didn’t record a tackle last week. I’d still roll with him if needed as a low end DL2 this week against the Packers. Green Bay struggled to protect Aaron Rodgers against Seattle and already has injury issues along their offensive front. Even if the Pack try to ground it out Richardson is productive in the run game and the Jets defense as a whole excels in that area. Eventually Rodgers will have to drop back under pressure and the Jets ends should benefit.
Ezekiel Ansah DL2 vs CAR
Ziggy showed no ill effects in week 1 of the injury that kept him limited throughout the preseason. He’ll be facing a Panthers offensive line that replaced 80% of its starters from a year ago. Add in the fact that Cam Newton won’t be as likely to scramble with his sore ribs and the Lions front could be in for a big day.
