Week 3 of the NFL season gave us our biggest loss yet on the IDP side of things, as Blake Martinez was lost for the year. But as usual, there were plenty of other injuries and role changes to keep us busy as we try to find the best players available to help our fantasy teams continue to succeed.

DEFENSIVE LINE

DE MICHAEL DANNA, KANSAS CITY CHIEFS

The Chiefs were without highly-paid edge rusher Frank Clark on Sunday, as he was dealing with a hamstring injury — which, depending on the severity, could keep him out even longer. Clark has played one game so far this season and earned a 50.6 pass-rush grade, managing only one pressure. He finished that game with just a 34.9 overall grade.

Danna saw his opportunity grow significantly in two games with Clark out of the lineup and has performed well in each of his starts this season, posting six pressures, a sack, a 66.9 pass-rush grade and a 66.3 overall grade in his two starts (Week 1 and 3). Danna also has an 18.0% pass-rush win rate (32nd among EDs), which is significantly better than Clark’s 4.8% win rate this year, as well as Clark's 10.2% win rate in 2020. Danna is the better option to start over Clark at this point, it’s just a matter of if the Chiefs have realized that once Clark is back healthy.
