Welcome to Week 5 of the 2022 season IDP Start ‘Em Sit ‘Em series. Last week was full of great IDP performances, week 5 could shape up for a good one as well. This is the final week before bye weeks begin. Be prepared and plan for bye weeks a week ahead of time. Some players here are ‘streaming’ options. 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.
Rashan Gary v NYG (London Game)
Gary has been on this list once before, and he will be on it again. He is at an All-Pro pace, and there is too much greatness this Sunday in the London game to miss out. Gary has 19 tackles, 5 sacks, 1 FF, 1 FR… all of those numbers could go up Sunday regardless of who the QB for the Giants is. Streaming options look no further. Play with confidence!
Myles Garrett v LAC
Garrett has only 3 tackles and 1 sack in the last 3 weeks. He was in a horrific car crash that forced him to miss last week. The Chargers are without their stud left tackle and Garrett should be letting some frustration out this week. The Browns are playing good football, but they need their best player to have a great game for a chance to cool off the red hot Chargers. Play him with confidence.
Jeffery Simmons @WAS
Simmons has been lackluster the past couple of weeks. The big man is often double-teamed and plays from the interior which is difficult to generate points. Not to worry, a match up against the Commanders Offensive line should fix that. Look for the 2019 1st rd pick to get a sack and a few tackles before the Titans go into their bye week.
Melvin Ingram @NYJ
Ingram has simply been on fire. He’s on a roster in most IDP leagues and he has been living on the big play. He could do it again against the Jets, but Wilson is a quick and deceptively strong QB. Pine him this week
Brandon Graham @ARI
Graham is still making plays in his 12th season. He has earned a tackle in every game and a sack in every other, with this week set to add another sack. Kyler Murray is extremely difficult to chase down, the Eagles will be on a heavy rotation against the high volume of the Cardinals. Pine him.
Also keep an eye on Joey Bosa (LAC). Sit him on IR if you have a spot available
Well that’s it for our IDP Start ‘Em Sit ‘Em for Week 5 of the 2022 season. Thank you for reading! Look for this column each week and best of luck! Remember, you can check out rankings for each Week.
