IDP Snap Report: All IDP Snap Report Team
The regular season is over, and while some are still doing playoff leagues, others are already preparing for the 2014 season. The IDP snap report series ends with the all IDP snap report team; a front seven of players who saw their role increase as the season went on which led to an increase in fantasy production. While they might not make a great real life front seven as they are an odd mix of 4-3 and 3-4 players, each individual should have a bright future in both real life and fantasy.
DE: Cameron Heyward
It took over two years of outplaying Ziggy Hood for Heyward to crack the Steelers starting lineup, but in Week 6 he became a starter and never looked back. From Week 10 on he saw at least 84.8% of snaps in each game. For three weeks the Steelers were without Brett Keisel, and his snaps were above 93.0% each week. The Steelers aren’t likely to keep Keisel next year, so Heyward should continue playing a large number of snaps. His large volume of snaps led to 29 solo tackles since Week 9 which is fourth most for all defensive linemen, while his six sacks were tied for 11th most.
