Welcome to Week 11 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.
Week 10 led to some surprising IDP totals, and the lowest, highest point total of the season. Sheldon Rankins of Houston was the leading point scorer with 38.50 points last week, congrats to anyone that had him in their lineup. There are four teams on bye this week; Atlanta Falcons, Indianapolis Colts, New England Patriots, and New Orleans Saints. There are some great IDPs on all of those teams so make sure to remove them from your lineup.
Results From Last Week
Week 10 Starts
- DL Micah Parsons (DAL) 0.00pts
- DL Jermain Johnson (NYJ) 8.50pts – 2 tackles, 0.5 sacks, 1 PD, 1 QB Hits
- LB Foye Oluokun (JAX) 32.25pts – 9 tackles, 3 TFLs, 2 sacks, 2 QB Hits
- LB Boye Mafe (SEA) 17.75pts – 5 tackles, 1 sack, 1 TFL, 1 QB Hit, 1 PD
- DB Paulsen Adebo (NO) 16.50pts – 9 tackles, 2 PD
- DB Charvarius Ward (SF) 6.00pts – 2 tackles, 1 PD
Week 10 Sits
- DL AJ Epenesa (BUF) 17.00pts – 3 tackles, 3 QB Hits, 1.5 sacks, 1 TFL
- LB Tremaine Edmunds (CHI) 0.00pts
- DB Kenny Moore (IND) 8.25pts – 6 tackles
Outside of the defensive line position it was a decent outing for Week 10. AJ Epenesa had an impressive game despite the loss to the Denver Broncos. Enough about week ten though, time to look at week 11, and see where the best IDP plays are.
Nick Bosa (SF) v TB
Bosa is the one time use player for this week. Chase Young has put on the familiar red jersey color and is helping their pass rush. It has allowed for Nick Bosa to take advantage on one-on-one matches as the running backs begin to chip Chase Young. The San Francisco 49ers are playing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this week with a patchwork offensive line. N. Bosa should get to Baker Mayfield at least once this game.
Preston Smith (GB) v LAC
The Packers are experiencing another rough season, and it appears they will have little to play for but pride. Preston Smith gives 100% effort regardless of the team’s record, the opponent across from him, or the down and distance. He is a true leader and both of the Packers sack specialists have signed contract extensions to be Packers for the foreseeable future. Smith will have opportunities to get to Herber who although healthy has seen tons of pressure. Smith is available in most leagues, unless there are die hard Packers fans in there.
Trey Hendrickson (CIN) @BAL
Hendrickson is having another pro-bowl caliber year. Unfortunately he hyperextended his knee against the Houston Texans last week, and he has a short turnaround with a match up Thursday night against division rival Baltimore Ravens. He has practiced and there are rumblings of him playing, but do not put him in your lineup. Do not drop him, just pine him this week.
