IDP Analysis: Week 8 Matchups
IDP Analysis: Week 8 Matchups

This article is part of our IDP Analysis series.

With rosters of all shapes and sizes, IDP advice can be a bit tricky, so the purpose of this article is to point out players whose value is elevated for the upcoming week. Some of these players will be superstars, while others will be players found on many waiver wires. Whether you're streaming IDPs each week or have a stocked roster, this, "one size fits" all approach will hopefully help most everyone find a weekly edge.

Pass rushers

Khalil Mack, Akiem Hicks and Leonard Floyd – Bears: The Jets prefer to use their rushing attack to establish their offense, but they're unlikely to have much success on the road against an outstanding Chicago front-seven. As a result, look for New York to find themselves in many obvious passing situations, which should play right into the hands of the strong Bears' pass rush. In addition, there's also an excellent chance Chicago will play with the lead, increasing their opportunities to sack Sam Darnold.

Ndamukong Suh, Aaron Donald and Michael Brockers – Rams: Even though the Packers have had flashes of success on defense, it's difficult to imagine that they'll be able to contain the potent Los Angeles offensive attack, which should lead to Green Bay abandoning the run when they possess the football. Although Aaron Rodgers should be able to move the football against this defense, his offensive line has coughed up 3.5 sacks per game, and the Rams pass rush should be able to feast.
