We’re getting closer and closer to the fantasy football playoffs and injuries are starting to pile up. If you’ve been active on the waiver wire all season, then continuing to do so will give you a massive advantage as we near the final stretch of the season. If you’ve neglected to add depth to your IDP roster but are still in contention, then it’s not too late to fill holes on your fantasy football roster.

The Cowboys were without both of their top edge rushers this past week, as both Randy Gregory and Demarcus Lawrence are on injured reserve (IR). While Lawrence is expected to return at some point soon, Gregory will miss at least three games with his injury, which opened up a big opportunity for Armstrong, who had his best game of the season in Week 10, posting four pressures, a sack and a 76.9 pass-rush grade. This was Armstrong’s highest-graded game as a pass rusher for his career, which hopefully is a sign of things to come if he’s going to be getting a full complement of snaps while the starters are out.

Armstrong played 70% of Dallas' snaps in the win against the Atlanta Falcons and should see a similar snap share for the next few weeks while Gregory is out. Perhaps most impressive about Armstrong’s performance was that he lined up primarily against Falcons left tackle Jake Matthews, who has been the team's best pass-blocker all season. Armstrong earned a 41.7% pass-rush win-rate on true pass sets versus Atlanta, which was tied for sixth-best among all edge rushers (min. 20% of snaps). He has enough snap volume and if he can continue to play as well as he did in Week 10, Armstrong could be a solid defensive line pickup for IDP teams in need of help.
