  • Top IDP options return from injured reserve: Joey Bosa and Xavier McKinney are back in the lineup and can be trusted as potential starters in most IDP leagues.
  • Dynasty stock rising: James Houston and Christian Barmore continue to emerge along the defensive line while Jalen Pitre makes his case for IDP playoff MVP.
  • Defensive Player of the Year candidate, but maybe not for IDP: Micah Parsons has been one of the best players all year long, but there have been some ups and downs for IDP managers that drafted him highly, which should always have been taken into account given his unique position.
Estimated reading time: 33 minutes


WEEK 17 TAKEAWAYS

Make sure to check out last week’s waiver targets. Some of the key players stood out as potential adds after Week 17 for leagues of all sizes:

Waiver Wire
  • LB – Harvey Langi, LV – Due to Darien Butler‘s injury, Langi stepped into the Raiders' secondary linebacker role but should only be considered in deeper IDP leagues as a part-time player.
  • LB – Azeez Al-Shaair, SF – Dre Greenlaw suffered a back injury that kept him out for the rest of the game. Al-Shaair is his immediate replacement and would be a viable option in most leagues.
  • LB – Tanner Muse, SEA – Jordyn Brooks suffered a torn ACL, ending his season. This will allow Muse to move into the secondary linebacker spot while Cody Barton plays an every-down role in Week 18.
  • LB – Jack Gibbens, TEN – Gibbens played an every-down role this week as the Titans' top linebacker. He’ll be worth a shot in most leagues where there’s a need for linebacker help.
  • EDGE – Joey Bosa, LAC – Bosa returned after an extended stint on injured reserve. He is an elite edge option and should be rostered where available.
  • EDGE – Brandon Graham, PHI – With Josh Sweat more than likely out next week, Graham, who has been very efficient on limited snaps, will play a bigger role in Week 18.
  • S – Tony Adams, NYJ – Adams filled in for the injured Lamarcus Joyner this week. Adams could be a viable deep league option in the final week.
  • S – Xavier McKinney, NYG – McKinney returned after several weeks on injured reserve. He would definitely be a starting safety option in most IDP leagues.

It should surprise no IDP managers that have been paying attention to them this season that the snaps have fluctuated once again. There isn’t a startable player in this group for most IDP leagues.

  • POINT OF INTEREST: Micah Parsons has been an NFL Defensive Player of the Year candidate all season long, but for IDP purposes, there have been plenty of ups and downs throughout the season. This was always the argument for Parsons being a riskier fantasy pick because as great as the highs are — he’s had six multi-sack games this season — his tackle floor is lower than the majority of every-down linebackers, which is what he’s designated as on most fantasy platforms. This has left him with nine games where he didn’t land a sack and ended with no more than seven combined tackles. Parsons will undoubtedly be listed as a defensive end/edge on fantasy platforms next season, so it should become less of an issue for IDP.

  • ROOKIE WATCH: James Houston saw his playing time increase significantly this week, playing more than 50% of Detroit's defensive snaps for the first time all season, which allowed him to land three sacks and bring his season total up to eight in just six games. Houston’s sack rate (8.9%) is by far the highest in the league for his position, and it should be considered unstable for fantasy managers looking to chase those points, but an increase in his playing time is a big help for a better production floor at the very least.

He’s done this while playing 85% of his defensive snaps from a deep alignment, making the tackle production all the more impressive.

  • WAIVER-WIRE: Joey Bosa returned from injured reserve this week and played 24 defensive snaps. Bosa is among the elite at his position and would likely get a bit more playing time next week when fantasy managers can trust him in lineups. Bosa still forced three pressures on his limited playing time.

  • POINT OF INTEREST: Christian Barmore posted the best single-game grade of his career (90.8) and the best pass-rush grade of his career (90.0) so far. Barmore was showing a ton of potential as a rookie last season and dealt with an injury that kept him out several weeks this year, making it more difficult to analyze his season. Still, he continues to be a hot commodity in DT-required dynasty leagues.

  • INJURY: Josh Sweat was carted off due to a neck injury in the first quarter and is likely to miss some time.
  • WAIVER-WIRE: Brandon Graham has been very productive in a limited role and will now get more playing time while Sweat is out. He should be a solid edge option where needed.

KEY TERMS AND METHODOLOGY

  • Overall defense: Understand which teams are deploying specific coverages and personnel packages that help determine which IDPs will be on the field and how they are deployed.
  • Edge defenders & defensive interior: Which players are dominating at the line of scrimmage and putting up the best predictive pass rush metrics.
  • Linebackers: Which linebackers are on the field and which ones are being subbed out regularly.
  • Safeties: Where are these players lining up pre-snap — the closer to the line of scrimmage, the better their odds of landing a tackle.
  • Cornerbacks: Who are the outside and slot corners for each team and which ones are targeted the most.
Data keys
  • Tackle efficiency = Percentage of snaps where that IDP was in on a tackle. Average tackle efficiency for linebackers in 2022 is 12.3%.
  • Win rate = Percentage of snaps that a defensive lineman won their rep against a blocker. Average win rate for edge defenders in 2022 is 12.1%. Average win rate for interior defenders in 2022 is 8.7%.
  • Pressure rate = Percentage of pass-rush snaps that resulted in a pressure. Average pressure rate for edge defenders in 2022 is 9.2%. Average pressure rate for interior defenders in 2022 is 6.1%.
  • Pass-rush grade = PFF pass-rush grade, taking into account the quality of every pass-rush snap for every player on every play. Average pass-rush grade for edge defenders in 2022 is 63.0. Average pass-rush grade for interior defenders in 2022 is 61.3.
  • +EPA allowed % = The percentage of plays against the defense that resulted in positive expected points added for the offense.
  • Zone coverage rate = Percentage of Cover-2, Cover-3 (+variations), Cover-4/quarters, and Cover-6 snaps played by the defense.
  • Man coverage rate = Percentage of Cover-1, Cover-0, and Cover-2-Man snaps played by the defense.
  • Dime personnel rate = Percentage of snaps the defense spent with six defensive backs on the field at once, typically at the cost of a linebacker.
  • Blitz rate = Percentage of snaps where the defense sent at least one extra pass rusher on a given play.
  • Box snaps = Snaps where the defensive player is lined up in a linebacker or strong safety alignment (within 2-10 yards of the line of scrimmage).
  • Free safety snaps = Snaps where the defensive player is lined up more than 10.5 yards from the line of scrimmage.
  • Slot corner snaps = Snaps where the defensive player is lined up covering an eligible receiver who is aligned inside of an outside receiving option.
  • Outside corner snaps = Snaps where the defensive player is the widest outside defender to any given side where there is a wide receiver aligned.
  • Defensive line snaps = Snaps where the defensive player is lined up on or within 1.5 yards of the line of scrimmage.
  • Forced incompletion rate = Percentage of snaps where a coverage player forced an incomplete pass by way of a pass-breakup, a hit that knocks the ball loose, cutting off the receiver’s route, forcing the receiver out of bounds before a completion can be made, or tight enough coverage that causes the ball to be uncatchable.
