Welcome to The Huddle’s IDP Sleeper Report. Here, you’ll find some potential sleepers, who may or may not be on your league’s waiver wire. Hopefully we can target a few key guys to get you in the playoffs and finish strong. We’ll take a peek back at last week’s picks to see how our guys panned out. 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.
Andy Studebaker (KCC): Studebaker will continue to start on the outside for the Chiefs and should rack up 4-5 solos.
Parys Haralson (SFO): Haralson is on a nice little 3-game streak, each with a sack. He could likely get to Kurt Warner come Sunday and should rack up at least 3 solos. If you’re in a deep league that gives big points for sacks, Haralson is worth a shot.
Other to Consider: Matt Roth (CLE)
Dwan Edwards (DE – BAL): With Terrell Suggs still ailing, Edwards has stepped up. The Browns’ offense won’t scare anyone, so Suggs should still be on the sidelines and Edwards may log his second sack of the season.
Daniel Muir (DT – IND): Muir is getting enough playing time to log 4-5 solos against Denver’s blocking scheme. If you’re struggling to fill a DT spot, Muir is worth a shot.
Other to Consider: Raheem Brock (DE – IND)
James Butler (S – STL): With OJ Atogwe shelved for the season, Butler becomes the best option in the secondary to log tackles. He’ll be chasing down Chris Johnson all game.
Corey Webster (CB – NYG): Both Webster and fellow Giant CB Terrell Thomas might be free agents in your league, and both could help you out this week. Webster could see the most work, though. He has 11 solos in his past two outings.
Other to Consider: Michael Huff (S – OAK)
WEEK THIRTEEN REPORT CARD
Corey Mays (KCC): 5 solo tackles (10 fantasy points). You know what you’re getting with Mays: right around 5 solos every game.
Chase Blackburn (NYG): 1 assist (1 fp). Second year Jonathan Goff ended up the starter in the middle for the Giants and had a solid outing (4 solos, 4 assists).
James Anderson (CAR): 3 solo tackles (6 fp). Following a solid effort, Anderson had a pretty vanilla outing against the Bucs.
Kenny Peterson (DE – DEN): 1 solo tackle (2 fp). Peterson has helped the Bronco defense, but hasn’t done much fantasy-wise (even against the Chiefs!).
John Henderson (DT – JAC): Zip. Henderson sustained a shoulder injury and will be questionable in Week 14.
Trevor Scott (DE – OAK): 2 solo tackles, 1 assisted tackle, 1 sack (8 fp). Scott is actually the new WLB for the Raiders, but likely still has DE eligibility. That said, he’ll have tons of value for the remainder of the season.
Reed Doughty (S – WAS): 7 solo tackles, 1 assisted tackle, 1 pass defensed (14.5 fp). Doughty has strung together six double-digit fantasy outings and will continue to post solid tackle numbers for the rest of the season.
Lardarius Webb (CB – GBP): 4 solo tackles, 1 assisted tackle (9 fp). In leagues that give points for return yards, his effort was much better.
Ryan Clark (S – PIT): 4 solo tackles, 3 assisted tackles (11 fp). With Troy Polamalu still out, Clark puts up solid, yet unspectacular numbers.
