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 huddledarin@yahoo.com if you want to suggest a player or discuss my picks.  Good luck this season!

LINEBACKERS

Matt Roth (MIA): Roth knows the Miami offense and should tally 4-5 solos this week, and could build on his 2-game sack streak.

Julian Peterson (DET):  Yes, he only has one sack on the season, but Peterson has shown a penchant for getting to the opposing QB, and we all know how easily sacking Jay Cutler has been this season.  Should be a busy game for the Lion IDPs. 

Other to Consider:  Jason Hunter (DEN)

DEFENSIVE LINEMEN

Wallace Gilberry (DE – KCC):  The Chiefs’ front seven will try getting to Denver QB Kyle Orton as much as possible Sunday.  Gilberry has been a surprisingly effective pass rusher for the Chiefs.  Do the math.     

Junior Siavii (DT – SEA):  With Colin Cole (who’s having a solid season) likely out again, the ex-Duck veteran will man the middle for the Seahawk front line.  Should be a productive day for the Seahawk D facing a weak Carolina offense.   

Other to Consider:  Israel Idonije (CHI)

DEFENSIVE BACKS

Greg Toler (CB – ARI):  He’s likely not on dynasty leagues’ waiver wire, but could have been dropped in shallower leagues or those that combine CB and S into “DB”.  You’ll likely want Toler back in your lineup this week, as he was solid against the Rams in their first meeting.

Jarius Byrd (S – BUF):  The Byrd Man is back, folks!  He was a breakout stud last season, and while he hasn’t done all too much this year, he may be heating up after a 22-point effort against the Steelers.  Good matchup here this week against the Vikes.     

Other to Consider:  Brent Grimes (ATL)

Week 12 Results

LINEBACKERS
Kavell Conner (IND): 7 solos and 3 assists, not bad.  Definitely worth a look with the Colt LB corps totally wrecked.    
Joe Mays (DEN):  13 fantasy points in most leagues last week.  Don’t expect that to continue with D.J. Williams due back, but you never know.   
Channing Crowder (MIA):  A balky knee rendered ol’ Channing useless last week. 

DEFENSIVE LINEMEN
Darryl Tapp (DE – PHI):  Well yuck.  He’s been disappointing. 
Jeremy Mincey (DT – JAC):  I won’t “mince” words:  I like this guy.  He had a quiet week last week, but the prior two were a glimpse into what he’s capable of.  We’ll see him blow up this week. 
Roy Miller (TBB):  We went into further detail about Miller in this week’s Deep Sleepers piece after his 10-point outing last week. 

DEFENSIVE BACKS
Craig Dahl (S – STL):  Super inconsistent, but then again, so is his running mate Oshiomogho Atogwe.  Plus, he’s got a much easier name to type. 
Dimitri Patterson (CB – PHI):  The entire Philly IDP bunch sucked last week.  Expect a rebound here against Houston.     
Glover Quin (HOU):  I think this guy is one of the more under-rated fantasy CBs in the game.  With some consistency, he’ll be a must-have in leagues that start CB.
