2023 Week 13 IDP Help

Welcome to another exciting week of NFL action from the 2023 season, and my attempts to help you make crucial decisions for your IDP lineup for Week 13. As the 2023 NFL season reaches Week 13, IDP managers are evaluating their players to make crucial lineup decisions. In this article, I’ll analyze three standout IDPs: DB Jabrill Peppers of the New England Patriots, LB Elandon Roberts of the Pittsburgh Steelers, and DL Michael Hoecht of the Los Angeles Rams. I’ll delve into their Week 12 performances, project their Week 13 stats, and explore how they can excel against their respective opponents based on stats and strengths.

Michael Hoecht (DL, LAR) v CLE

Week 12 Stats: 5 tackles, 1 sack, 1 TFL.

Week 13 Projection: 7 tackles, 3 sacks & 4 TFL.

Hoecht has been a consistent force on the defensive line for the Rams. In Week 13, the Rams play the Browns, a team that relies heavily on their ground game. Hoecht is projected to increase his tackle count while maintaining his sack production. His ability to penetrate the offensive line and make tackles for loss will be invaluable against the Browns’ rushing attack. Hoecht enjoys playing a physical and aggressive style of football. Additionally, he is effective at plugging running lanes and creating chaos for opposing offenses in the trenches.

Elandon Roberts (LB, PIT) v ARI

Week 12 Stats: 6 tackles, 1 TFL

Week 13 Projection: 12 tackles, 2 sacks, 1 INT & 1 FF

Roberts has been a tackling machine for the Steelers. In Week 13, the Steelers play the Cardinals, led by Kyler Murray. Roberts is poised to capitalize on the Cardinals’ tendencies. His projected increase in tackles and sacks is a testament to his ability to disrupt opposing offenses. Facing a mobile quarterback like Murray, Roberts’ versatility and physicality will be crucial in limiting Arizona’s offensive output. Elandon Roberts is a physical and tenacious linebacker who likes to play downhill and make an impact against the run. Roberts is often used in blitz packages due to his explosiveness off the line of scrimmage, which allows him to pressure the quarterback effectively.

Jabrill Peppers (DB, NE) v LAC

Week 12 Stats: 3 tackles, 1 sack & 1 TFL

Week 13 Projection: 9 tackles, 0.5 sacks, 1 INT & 3 PDs.

Peppers has been a steady performer for fantasy managers in 2023. In Week 12, he put up average fantasy stats. This week, the Patriots play the Chargers, known for their explosive passing attack led by quarterback Justin Herbert. Peppers should shine in Week 13 by capitalizing on his ability to defend the pass. With his projected increase in pass deflections and an interception, he can disrupt Herbert’s rhythm. Additionally, his projected sack showcases his versatility as a playmaker in both the secondary and the blitzing game. Expect Peppers to continue his reliable IDP production this week.

The data-driven projections suggest they’ll have their moments of IDP glory, whether it’s through interceptions, tackles, sacks, or forced fumbles.
