Welcome to Week 8 of the 2022 season IDP Start ‘Em Sit ‘Em series. Two successful weeks in a row for us. Let’s keep the momentum rolling. There are only 2 teams on byes, but there are great IDPs on both teams. This should allow for most teams to maximize their roster.
We now have teams on bye. For this week:
- Kansas City Chiefs
- Los Angeles Chargers
Dorance Armstrong v CHI
Armstrong likely is free, cleared waivers, and available. He is quietly having a wonderful season while media and opposing teams focus on Parsons and D. Law. 16 tackles, 5 sacks, 1 forced fumble, 1 fumble recovery so far this season. Look for another sack against the decimated Bears O Line. Pick him up. Play him.
Haason Reddick v PIT
Reddick is coming off a bye, looking sharp, and is primed for a great game. This week is the Keystone State Showdown! That is to say Pittsburgh vs Philadelphia. He has only 14 tackles, but 4.5 sacks, 3 forced fumbles, 2 fumble recoveries, 1 pass defended, & 6 QB hits. He is Mr. Big Play and he will have a feast of big plays against an awful Steelers O Line.
Gregory Rousseau v GB
Rousseau hasn’t had a 10-point game in 4 weeks. That is likely to change as he plays a Packers team that has been out of rhythm and shuffling O Linemen like a poker dealer at a casino. Look for Rousseau to add to his 16 tackles and 4 sacks coming off a bye and at home against the discombobulated Packers.
Rashan Gary @BUF
Gary is in concussion protocol and could miss his first game or be on a snap count when he returns. Pine him until more information is available and it is advised you pine him for the week.
Bye Week Watch
Chris Jones BYE
Jones was dropped in several leagues. If you have the space, scoop him up and hold him. He is currently the 11th ranked DL, and that is with his best play of the season being ripped away due to an awful penalty. You will have a top ten DL past his bye week for the rest of the season if you can pine him.
Well that’s it for our IDP Start ‘Em Sit ‘Em for Week 8 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.
