Reading the Defense: Week 16

A weekly look at IDP trends with a mix of metrics, film study, and matchup strategy

PLAYOFF STRATEGY REMINDER

I'm again copying this important strategy note for those who remain alive in your IDP playoffs...

Remember, players with middling upside are not worth lineup spots in the playoffs unless they have a very safe floor and you're a significant favorite and want to maximize points. If you're likely to be chasing your opponent, a lineup bust doesn't hurt you. But a surprise stud performance can close the gap for you. Take chances if you can.

I'll again have some suggestions for those high upside plays below. But I also want to paraphrase something I tweeted last weekend.

If you have a close decision this weekend, go with your gut. It's gotten you through 15 weeks. If your gut isn't helping, start the player with the higher ceiling. Then, enjoy the games.

First, some quick news and notes from last weekend.
