IDP Dynasty Sleepers: Week 5

A handful of linebackers, defensive linemen, and defensive backs to keep an eye on from a dynasty perspective.

Linebackers

Aaron Lynch (CHI): For a 5-year veteran, Lynch is still pretty young (25) and finds himself playing opposite a pretty dominant pass-rusher. So Lynch won’t face many double teams and chip blocks. Not saying Lynch is an every-week start, but already having a couple of sacks on the season pings my radar. Of course, in the two games where he was held without a sack, he posted a goose egg. With it being Chicago’s bye week, this is really just a “wait and see” kind of recommendation. He’d be addable in “big play” formats only.

Austin Calitro (SEA): K.J. Wright is still not “right” and Shaquem Griffin isn’t seeing the field. Now that Mychal Kendricks is suspended, there will be an opening on the weak side until Wright is back. Calitro filled in admirably for Bobby Wagner in the middle the first two games (10 solos, 2 assists, 1 pass breakup) and should be considered for the spot. If for nothing else, Calitro is a nice DTS stash. Those that need immediate help could also put him straight on the active roster and start him against the Rams. Plenty of tackling opportunities to be had against that offense.
