Walking the IDP Waiver Wire: Week 15
It's the start of a new season: the fantasy football playoffs. Let's get you ready with IDP waiver targets for this coming week.
Well, we made it! Hopefully, all of your teams are playoff bound and ready to make a title run this year. If your teams are similar to mine, there might be a few holes or question marks due to injuries, and we saw plenty more of them this weekend. IDP is, and has always been, all about opportunity, and this season has exemplified that next-man-up mentality. With 3 games this week on Saturday, it’s important to stay alert to late-game scratches and inactives as we head into the playoffs. This week has a heavy dose of players coming back from injury AND injury replacements to help your teams stay alive and fighting next week. Let’s take a look at this week’s waiver claims.
Previous Weeks: Gregory Rousseau, Alex Highsmith, Dominique Robinson, Rasheem Green, Dre’mont Jones, Justin Jones, Deatrich Wise Jr, BJ Hill, Shy Tuttle, Kayvon Thibodeaux, Zach Allen, Jihad Ward, Dexter Lawrence, Dorance Armstrong, Derek Brown, Sebastian Joseph-Day, Jarran Reed, Grover Street, Denico Autry, Darrell Taylor, Samuel Williams, Javon Hargrave, Boye Mafe, Jay Tufele, Jerry Hughes, A’Shawn Robinson, Vita Vea, Julian Okwara, Calais Campbell, Myjai Sanders, John Cominsky, Carl Granderson, Zach Sieler, Ed Oliver, Josh Sweat, Chase Young, Micheal Hoecht, DeShawn Williams, Osa Odighizuwa
Brandon Graham, Philadelphia Eagles
In his 12th season, Brandon Graham has had a steady, if not spectacular, year. But as the Eagles prepare for their Super Bowl run (they officially clinched a playoff spot on Sunday), Graham has been heating up. He now has had a sack in 4 straight games, including 3 on Sunday versus the Giants. With the Chicago Bears on tap this weekend, Graham should easily make it 5 straight games with a sack.
DJ Reader, Cincinnati Bengals
Ask anyone to name defensive players for the Bengals and I bet they forget DJ Reader. It’s no surprise: Reader is working his way back from a knee injury that cost him 5 games this season, but with Trey Hendrickson breaking his wrist, Reader is going to be needed heavily going forward. Reader was already fully back in the rotation, as he was 4th in snaps before Hendrickson’s injury. I expect him to play more going forward and he gets a plus matchup against Tampa Bay’s porous offensive line in Week 15.
