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.
Shaun Phillips (SDC): Phillips is a good linebacker. He’ll put fantasy points up this week against the Cards. Already has a pair of sacks and will add to it this week if things go right.
Jason Taylor (NYJ): Speaking of sack-happy LBs, bring on the old man this week if you want a solid LB3 with some upside. He’ll likely post his third sack of the season against a rather weak Bill offensive line.
Scott Shanle (NOS): Shanle should rack up a handful of tackles against the Panther RBs this weekend. Don’t expect much else, although a sack could happen if Gregg Williams opens up the playbook against the rookie Panther QB.
Other to Consider: Brandon Siler (SDC)
Mike DeVito (DE – NYJ): The big Paisan is posting decent tackle stats to start the season and could have a chance at his first sack against the Bills this weekend.
Chris Clemons (DE – SEA): Clemons simply shouldn’t be on waiver wires in any IDP leagues 12 teams or over. He’s got a fabulous matchup this weekend and posted 2 sacks last week.
Other to Consider: Aubrayo Franklin (DT - SFO)
Michael Huff (S – OAK): We keep waiting for Huff to get it all together, and while we’re still kind of waiting, he is posting decent fantasy stats. If you’re in a larger league and need a decent DB2, Huff has a great matchup and could post 12-15 fantasy points.
Ryan Clark (S – PIT): The big hitter could be a nice DB2 in larger leagues this week against the Ravens. Troy Polamalu can only do so much back there.
Anton Cason (CB – SDC): Cason should be tested against the Cardinal offense this week. He’s averaging 5 solos per week and will likely be in that range again this week.
Other to Consider: Drayton Florence (CB – BUF)
