IDP Dynasty Sleepers, Week 13 - Footballguys

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

Let's face it, dynasty is tough. Owners in leagues of all sizes and scoring systems are always looking for an edge over their competition. The goal of this article is to highlight a trio of linebackers, defensive linemen, and defensive backs that can either help you right away or represent good grab-and-stash adds. These players were found in at least one of my many leagues (some 12-team, some 14-team, some 16-team), representing a variety of scoring (standard, big play, etc.). I try to not be too reactive to big scoring occurring in the prior week, but sometimes those outbursts can't be ignored. Hopefully, these players represent good value for your dynasty teams moving forward!

Linebackers

Jermaine Carter (CAR): Tahir Whitehead has steadily been losing snaps to Carter over the past month or so. Whitehead is 30 and on a one-year deal. Carter is significantly younger (25) and could certainly man the middle for the Panthers next year and for years to come. We know how productive Carolina linebackers can be. Shaq Thompson appears to be reaping the most benefits of Luke Kuechly's retirement, but there's certainly room for two 'backers to excel here. Following the Panthers' Week 13 bye, Carter could finish the season strong. Or if you're not in contention, Carter makes for a nice stash.

T.J. Edwards (PHI): Alex Singleton looks like he's there to stay, but he could certainly use a run-stuffing running mate like Edwards. Just 24 and out of Wisconsin, this two-down thumper has proved he can rack up tackles even if the opposing offense isn't relying on the run. Nate Gerry will be a free agent in 2021, so the Eagles could very well opt to run with the tandem of Singleton and Edwards moving forward. If so, Edwards could be a cheap source of 6-8 total tackles every week with the potential for more if he can add some more sacks and forced fumbles.
