IDP Week 5 Waiver Wire

Getting into Week 5 waiver wire adds can be tough to find, but there is still value adds for IDP leagues! We are now 25% into the season. The cream is rising to the top. There were a bunch of random injuries in week 4 that need to be monitored with injury reports.

The big one of the week was Darius Leonard going down and leaving the game. If you can’t get this in your ears, then my adds are listed out too below. If you want to know my reasons why, then get involved in the YouTube or podcast links further down.

Each of these players are in available in the vast majority of leagues, with ownership around 25% in IDP leagues. Obviously each league is different, so these might not all be available in your leagues.

Week 5 also brings the first (scheduled) bye-weeks to consider. There are just two teams on bye this week, although we have seen that can change:

  • Detroit Lions
  • Green Bay Packers
