Welcome to Week 2 of the 2022 season IDP Start ‘Em Sit ‘Em series. Week 1 brought us heartache with the loss of TJ Watt, and a rush to the waiver wires for the gold that was not drafted. Week 2 is the most over hyped week, with a tendency to overreact to week 1 performances. However, some performances will become weekly starters. Here’s a few IDPs that have value this week, and possibly beyond.
As always, if you are struggling with a decision you can checkout our rankings for each Week. Or, if you want a more personal touch, reach out on social media. You can find us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Or jump into our Discord server.
Charles Harris v WAS
Harris registered 7 tackles and was flying to the ball on every snap. He signed a one year ‘prove it’ contract and could be setting himself up for a nice payday. WAS QB C. Wentz was under pressure against the Jaguars week 1, look for Harris to get a sack and a few tackles.
Uchenna Nwasou @SF
Nwasou had an excellent Monday night game; 7 tackles, 1 sack, 1 forced fumble, and 1 pass defended. Seattle’s defense may have played with emotion, but Nwasou constantly won the point of contact, and controlled the line of scrimmage. He is worth adding to your roster.
Grady Jarrett @LAR
For Deeper leagues look for Jarrett. He earned 6 tackles and 1.5 sacks last week and is playing a poor Rams offensive line. He is being a schemed a bit differently this year and if it continues he could have his best statistical season.
Jerry Hughes @DEN
Hughes looks great on tape, he flies to the football, bring pressure on every pass play, and controls the line of scrimmage. In addition to the low tackle total of 3, Hughes earned 2 sacks, 1 forced fumble, and 1 interception. Either those stats will not sustain through out the year or Hughes will have the best statistical season of any defensive player of all-time…It’s a safe assumption the former is true.
T.J. Watt v NE
Watt may have an opportunity to return, just in time for a FF playoff push. Stash him if you have an IR spot, or deep bench… or any bench really.
