Welcome to another edition of The Huddle’s IDP Sleeper Report. The following IDPs were found on either a 12 or 16 IDP league’s waiver wire. Good luck this season and feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to suggest a player or discuss my picks. Good luck this season!
Paris Lenon (ARI): Chances are that Lenon’s long gone in deeper formats, but in some 12-team leagues, he may still be unclaimed. Gerald Hayes is on the PUP list, so Lenon and rookie Daryl Washington man the inside for the Cards’ D. Lenon already has 16 solos thus far and could have a solid Week 3 against Da Raidahs.
Chris Kelsay (BUF): Kelsay has appeared on this list several times over the past couple of years, but as a DL. He’s now listed as a LB (at least at MyFantasyLeague.com) and with Poz missing gime, Kelsay has stepped up to average 12.5 fantasy points per game. Could see some decent stats from Kelsay against the Pats this weekend.
Matt Roth (CLE): The ex-Hawkeye showed promise with the Dolphins and is now starting on the edge of the Brown line. He will be involved in run-stopping and could possibly get to QB Joe Flacco.
Other to Consider: Rob Ninkovich (NEP)
Juqua Parker (DE – PHI): Parker’s been on this list before, and for good reason. He’s definitely talented and has played well enough to hold off Darryl Tapp. Parker’s averaging 9.5 fantasy points through two weeks and has a nice matchup against the Jags this weekend.
Sione Pouha (DT – NYJ): He’s likely the highest-ranked DT on your free agent list, if not the highest-ranked overall DL. With Kris Jenkins on IR, Pouha is the anchor of the Jet line and has put up solid fantasy stats thus far. He could be an important cog against the Fins this week.
Other to Consider: Tyson Alualu (DT - JAC)
Steve Gregory (S – SDC): Gregory has generally outplayed Darrell Stuckey and is getting the bulk of time at SS for the Bolts. He’s averaging 17.5 fantasy points in two games thus far in 2010 and it could be a near-20 point effort against the Seahawks.
Lawyer Milloy (S – SEA): The vet still has a bit left in the tank, as evidenced by his 17 point effort last week. He’ll help in run support and could be key in covering TE Antonio Gates.
Jerraud Powers (CB – IND): Whoever he covers, he’ll be getting plenty of opportunities at pass defenses and solo tackles. He’ll probably cover Eddie Royal and may get 6-7 chances at making solo tackles.
Other to Consider: Jabari Greer (CB – NOS)
