Welcome to Week 5 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.
Results From Last Week
Week 4 Starts
- DL Haason Reddick (PHI) – 10.25pts, 2 Total tackles, 1 sack, 1 TFL, 1 QB hit
- DL Uchenna Nwosu (SEA) – 28.50pts, 6 Total tackles, 2 sacks, 2 QB hits, 1 FF, 2 TFLs
- LB Alex Singleton (DEN) – 15.00pts, 12 Total tackles
- LB Divine Deablo – 4.75pts, 4 Total tackles
- DB Kamern Curl (WAS) – 26.75pts, 12 Total tackles, 1 sack, 1 TFL, 1 QB hit
- DB Grant Delpit (CLE) – 6.00pts, 5 Total tackles
Week 4 Sits
- DL Harold Landry (TEN) 2.25pts, 2 tackles
- LB Frankie Luvu (CAR) 4.50pts, 5 Total tackles
- DB Derwin James (LAC) – 0.00pts
Another fantastic week with 91.25 points from the plays, and only 6.75 from the pines. Luvu was a a play, but he did exactly as projected if he did play and H. Landry and D. James were spot on. Enough gloating about week four, a new week awaits with it’s challenges.
Jonathan Allen (WAS) v CHI
Allen is coming off an impressive week with four tackles and a sack, earning 14.50 points. Yet he is still available even after waivers have cleared. The Washington Commanders are hosting the Chicago Bears after forcing the defending NFC Conference champions to overtime. Expect to see several sacks on Bears quarterback Fields and Allen should get at least 0.5 sack(s) in this match. Pick him up and PLAY HIM if you have a DL on bye this week.
Bradley Chubb (MIA) v NYG
Chubb was on this column a couple of weeks ago and let us down. Here is his chance at redemption as the Miami Dolphins host the New York Giants. Chubb has been unimpressive outside of this one week with a sack, but look for that to change against a team that gave up double-digit sacks in one game.
Kahlil Mack (LAC) BYE WEEK
‘I’m not as good as I once was, but I was good once, as I ever was.’ Kahlil Mack may have found the little rhyme in his head after a 72.50 point, 10 tackle and SIX SACKS. We all love Mack in the IDP community, and he is mentioned here even though on a bye week bc his name will cause people to get him on waivers and play him next week. Do not spend money on him or use a roster spot on him unless in deep bench leagues.
