NFL Week 3 Fantasy Football IDP Start 'Em, Sit 'Em

With two weeks of NFL action in the books, we're starting to get a clearer picture of what our fantasy teams can be. Now we just have to make the right decisions on which of our IDPs to trust going forward, along with avoiding panic after only a couple of weeks.

Last week’s start/sit was about trusting the process, which led us to some big plays out of De’Vondre Campbell and C.J. Mosley, while also ensuring we didn’t chase the points of someone like Germaine Pratt or Mario Addison. This week we’ll continue to focus on key players in solid roles, which should continue to bring us success in Week 3.

DEFENSIVE LINE

START: ED ODAFE OWEH, BALTIMORE RAVENS VS. DETROIT LIONS

Oweh led all Ravens edge rushers in snap share lastweek (75%). Thanks to his strong and effective start to the year, we could be in for a full season of this being the case for the rookie. Oweh has generated seven pressures — two of which were QB hits — one sack, five tackles, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. These are great numbers for any edge rusher in his first two NFL games.

Oweh has moved around the defensive line a bit, rushing almost equally from the left and right side, allowing him to not be matched with the opposing team’s best offensive lineman every week. This week he draws the Lions and one of the worst pass-blocking right tackles in the league this season, Matt Nelson. Nelson has allowed 10 pressures and a sack through two games, earning a PFF pass-blocking grade of just 41.1. Oweh has earned the right to start in IDP lineups and the matchup should reward fantasy managers who trust him with the start.

SIT: ED AZEEZ OJULARI, NEW YORK GIANTS VS. ATLANTA FALCONS

From one rookie edge rusher to another, it's been a hot start to the season for the second-round pick out of Georgia, at least from a production standpoint. Ojulari has managed a sack in back-to-back games for the Giants defense and has played 57% of the Giants’ defensive snaps to start the year.
