Maxx Crosby making a case for IDP MVP early this season: Crosby hasn’t missed a defensive snap in each of the past two weeks and has been productive, making him one of the most valuable players in IDP fantasy football in all formats.

The fallout of the Matt Milano injury: What the Buffalo Bills linebacker usage looked like when Milano left the game and who IDP managers should prioritize on the waiver wire.

The ever-changing Houston Texans’ linebacker corps: Another potential waiver target out of Houston emerges with a near-every-down role in Week 5.

Week 5 Takeaways

Be sure to check out last week’s waiver wire targets here.

Waiver wire
  • LB Josh Woods, Arizona Cardinals: Woods returned to the lineup for the first time since Week 1 and stepped right back into his LB role that allows enough snaps for him to be rostered in deeper leagues.
  • LB Tyrel Dodson, Dorian Williams, Buffalo Bills: When Matt Milano went out, Williams was the immediate fill-in for the rest of the first quarter. The team seemed to change their mind, though, as Dodson was the secondary linebacker for the rest of the game. Dodson did not play an every-down role beyond the first quarter but played 82% of Buffalo's defensive snaps while Williams played just 31% from the second quarter on. IDP managers should likely prioritize Dodson first and Williams second on their waiver wires this week.
  • LB Damone Clark, Dallas Cowboys: Clark would likely be the main beneficiary of Leighton Vander Esch’s potential absence and can be added in most leagues as an LB3 option.
  • LB Blake Cashman, Houston Texans: Cashman played a near-every-down role this week despite Denzel Perryman returning to the lineup after a two-game absence. It’s possible that Perryman will retake his starting role over Cashman with another week to get healthy, but Cashman also played really well, earning an 82.7 defensive grade that included nine tackles and two for a loss.
  • LB Isaiah Simmons, New York Giants: Simmons moved into an every-down role this week after previously averaging just 27% of the team’s defensive snaps over the first four weeks of the season. Micah McFadden, who had previously been working as the team’s secondary linebacker, missed this game due to a foot injury, so it’s possible that Simmons will fall back down the depth chart on McFadden’s return to the lineup.
  • LB Jack Gibbens, Tennessee Titans: Gibbens has now hovered around 80% of the team’s defensive snaps in each of the past three weeks. He will mostly be a deeper league option to target off the waiver wire with decent production so far this year.
  • ED Marcus Davenport, Minnesota Vikings: Davenport now has seven pressures and two sacks over the past two games. He is playing a significant amount of snaps along with Danielle Hunter and could be a potential waiver wire target for those in need.
  • S Marcus Williams, Baltimore Ravens: Williams returned to the lineup for the first time since Week 1 and while he played primarily deep, he can be a startable fantasy asset in deeper leagues.
  • S Justin Evans, Philadelphia Eagles: Evans returned to his starting role in the Eagles’ lineup this week after missing Week 4 and all but six defensive snaps in Week 3. Deeper leagues can look to add Evans as an every-down safety where he’s available.
  • S Percy Butler, Washington Commanders: With Darrick Forrest on injured reserve, expect Butler to play an increased role in the weeks ahead, making him a player of interest in deeper leagues.

  • Waiver wire: Marcus Williams returned to the lineup for the first time since Week 1 and while he played primarily deep, he can be a startable fantasy asset in deeper leagues.
  • Point of interest: With Williams back in the lineup, Kyle Hamilton’s usage improved to a more IDP-friendly alignment as he only had to play 30% of his defensive snaps deep. It was not the most productive game for Hamilton, but the usage is encouraging going forward.

  • Point of interest: A.J. Epenesa and Leonard Floyd both had big games with two sacks each, however, Epenesa added three pass breakups, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. This was the first game where Epenesa exceeded 50% of Buffalo's defensive snaps. With Von Miller expected to increase his workload in the weeks ahead, it’s possible that Epenesa’s snaps dip again and isn’t necessarily a waiver target in the majority of IDP leagues.

Dodson did not play an every-down role beyond the first quarter but played 82% of defensive snaps while Williams played just 31% from the second quarter on. IDP managers should likely prioritize Dodson first and Williams second on their waiver wires this week.

  • Point of interest: Kamu Grugier-Hill left this game for a stint due to an apparent injury and only played one snap in the fourth quarter. Chandler Wooten saw a snap increase but not nearly enough to make him an interesting waiver target in most leagues. Outside of Frankie Luvu, this linebacker group should be avoided for the time being.

He did play the next seven defensive snaps before missing the final three snaps of the game when the team was playing prevent defense with Jack Sanborn in his place. It’s possible Edmunds isn’t 100% healthy, so this may be something to monitor in the week ahead because Sanborn would be an immediate waiver target to pick up for Week 6.

It was touched on in Week 5’s IDP rankings article, but Hendrickson’s strong play and overall playing time continue to move him up the rankings this season.

  • Trending down: Nick Scott rotated with rookie Jordan Battle in this game, and it did not appear to be due to injury. Scott has had some struggles this season and it appears possible that the team may be leaning into Battle more going forward. Battle earned an 87.8 defensive grade which included an 83.9 coverage grade on 22 defensive snaps in this game. Scott has earned just a 43.2 defensive grade this season with a 40.7 coverage grade.

  • Injury: Leighton Vander Esch suffered a potential neck injury in the fourth quarter of this game and did not return. Vander Esch has a history of neck injuries so even if for most players this injury isn’t considered to be a serious one once tests are done, the team may opt to be cautious in bringing him back.
  • Waiver wire: Damone Clark would likely be the main beneficiary of Vander Esch’s potential absence and can be added in most leagues as an LB3 option.

  • Trending up: Rashan Gary’s snap share rose to the highest it’s been all season. The team clearly wanted to ramp up his workload coming off a torn ACL, and on limited snaps, he’s been very effective. Expect his workload to increase to a full-time role coming out of the team’s Week 6 bye.

Walker’s status for Week 7 is currently unknown but Isaiah McDuffie, who was a waiver wire target in previous weeks can be held until Walker’s injury status is cleared up.

It’s possible that Perryman will retake his starting role over Cashman with another week to get healthy, but Cashman also played really well, earning an 82.7 defensive grade which included nine tackles and two for a loss.

He landed a sack, seven pressures and five total tackles in this game. There has been no greater workhorse on the defensive side of the ball than Crosby these past few seasons, making him one of the league’s most valuable IDPs in all formats.

Long also played a near-every-down role, however, that could change if Andrew Van Ginkel moves back to off-ball linebacker on Jaelan Phillips’ return, whenever that may be.

It was unclear if he was dealing with some kind of injury or if it had to do with the Saints blowing out the Patriots, however, it is something to monitor going forward.

His sacks have mostly come from positive matchups and a high volume of snaps which IDP managers should be aware of for tougher matchups in the weeks ahead.

  • Waiver wire: Isaiah Simmons moved into an every-down role this week, after previously averaging just 27% of the team’s defensive snaps in the first four weeks of the season. Micah McFadden, who had previously been working as the team’s secondary linebacker, missed this game with a foot injury so it’s possible that Simmons falls back down the depth chart on McFadden’s return to the lineup.

He delivered another strong game, adding two sacks to his totals while playing an every-down role. He should be in weekly top-24 linebacker consideration for IDP leagues going forward.

Reddick has potentially earned back the trust of IDP managers to be trusted again on a weekly basis.
