IDP Snap Report: Week 11
As we get closer to the fantasy playoffs, it’s important to know exactly how teams will be using your players. Luckily most teams are settled in how they are using their linebackers, and it would take an injury for that to change. This week the focus is on two linebackers who play for two of the best teams in the AFC seeing their first action of the season. Two more NFC teams have players who are now at 100% and figuring out how to best use their players, while London Fletcher’s start streak is again in jeopardy.
Dan Connor/Ernie Sims
It was Week 7 that Sean Lee went down with an injury. It took a few weeks, but it looks like Dallas settled what to do at the inside linebacker spot opposite Bruce Carter. For the most part Dan Connor played with the base defense, Ernie Sims in the nickel, and both were off the field for the dime. At one point this looked like a situation where whoever won the battle could be an IDP starter depending on the opponent, it now looks like neither player has much fantasy value unless there is another injury.
