IDP Analysis: Week 4 Matchups
IDP Analysis: Week 4 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 values are elevated for the upcoming week. Some of these players will be superstars, while others will be players found on many waiver wires. We'll look at team positional groupings, based on the potential for a favorable game script. Whether you're streaming IDPs each week or have a stocked roster, this "one size fits all" approach hopefully will help most everyone find a weekly edge.

Linebackers

Cardinals (vs. Seahawks) – Players with elevated value: Haason Reddick, Jordan Hicks and Chandler Jones.

It's unlikely the Seahawks want their secondary to deal with the Air Raid offense, and they have the perfect recipe to slow it down. Look for them to run the ball and kill as much clock as they can. This is also the recipe for the Cardinals' linebackers to have productive performances.

Browns (at Ravens) – Players with elevated value: Joe Schobert, Mack Wilson and Adarius Taylor.

We know the Browns have assembled one heck of a secondary, and this might not be the week for the Ravens to let Lamar Jackson get pass happy. With Cleveland's ability to run the ball, not only with the RBs, but with Jackson, this may be the way to take advantage of a defense that lost Christian Kirksey to the IR. There should be plenty of tackle opportunities for the Cleveland LBs.
