Welcome to Week 10 of the 2023 season IDP Start ‘Em Sit ‘Em series. For those new to the article, know that Play or Pine will cover IDPs which might seem like an obvious start. The reason is that IDP leagues vary so much; one-time use for the season, 2 IDP starters in 10 team leagues, 11 starters in 14 team leagues, and roster requirements of various sorts throughout the world. So if one seems obvious it could be because the projections indicate this could be their best week of the season.
Have mercy! We are entering into the double-digits of fantasy football, it moves entirely too fast. The NFL is set with crucial games this week, but some of the NFL’s best are on bye weeks. The Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Rams, Miami Dolphins, and Philadelphia Eagles are on bye week. Get them out of your starting roster. Not to worry though, there are still excellent plays for this NFL Week 10. But first, a look back at Week 9 Play or Pine.
Results From Last Week
Week 9 Starts
- DL Justin Madubuike (BAL) 16.00pts – 4 tackles, 2 TFLs, 1 sack, 1 QB hit
- DL Jonathan Greenard (HOU) 9.00pts – 2 tackles, 3 QB Hits
- LB Jamin Davis (WAS) 12.75pts – 9 tackles, 1 PD
- LB Jahlani Tavai (NE) 10.00pts – 6 tackles, 1 FF
- DB Josh Metellus (MIN) 17.00pts – 5 tackles, 1 FR, 1 TFL
- DB Justin Reid (KC) 4.50pts – 3 tackles
Week 9 Sits
- DL Montez Sweat (CHI) 6.00pts – 2 tackle, 1 PD
- LB Devin White (TB) 20.50pts – 9 tackles, 2 QB Hits, 1 sack, 1 TFL
- DB Dax Hill (CIN) 4.50pts – 2 tackles, 1 PD
Another successful week for the plays, but no high scores. Above average play from the plays, with Josh Metellus leading the way with 17 points. Devin White had the best statistical performance of the season, making the pines two out of three for the week. It was a bold pine prediction and sometimes they do not go as planned. But Montez Sweat and Dax Hill were perfectly suited for the pine this week. However it is time to move onto week ten.
Micah Parsons (DAL) v NYG
This is the one time use for the fan favorite. Micah Parsons has at least one sack in three straight games and eight total on the season. This week the Dallas Cowboys are going against the New York Giants, who haven’t been able to get the starting quarterback to the end of the game… in three games. The Giants have an atrocious offensive line, and are on their third-string quarterback, who could be the worst starting quarterback of week ten. Trust Parsons for your one-and-done drafts this week… he will deliver.
Jermaine Johnson (NYJ) @LV
Johnson has been a bright spot for the lowly New York Jets. He is an unsung hero of a great defense, and delivers on his end of the deal. He has 2.5 sacks in the past two weeks and is up against a dismal Las Vegas Raiders offense. Johnson is not the focal point of opposing Offensive Coordinators and this allows him to take advantage of mismatches. Trust JJ to get the sacks this week.
AJ Epenesa (BUF) v DEN
AJ has been a play for this column, but traveling to Denver and trying to sack the elusive Russell Wilson will not be easy. He has only five tackles in the past three games, but he does have six sacks on the season. However a sack dependent player against a mobile quarterback is rarely a good play. Pine him.
