IDP Dynasty Sleepers, Week 16

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

Terez Hall (NEP): We've mentioned Hall here before but after his 12-solo outburst on Sunday he bears a repeat appearance. As with any Patriot defender, there's some risk in starting with confidence, but Hall has proved that he can rack up tackles. If Hall remains a starter in 2021, he would be a high-floor but low-ceiling type of fantasy producer. Certainly worth a grab-and-stash as we close up the season.

Tyus Bowser (BAL): Bowser comes with risk since he doesn't produce from a tackling standpoint, but the upside is there based on his ability to fill up other parts of the box score. He will continue to share snaps with a host of other talented edge rushers, but those in big-play formats should keep their eye on Bowser. If he somehow starts getting 3-4 solos a game, he's an add for sure.

Damien Wilson (KCC): Both Willie Gay Jr and Anthony Hitchens have been pretty unimpressive in 2020 so we will add Wilson's name here as one to watch going into 2021. If Hitchens' play is unimpressive and Gay doesn't develop as the Chiefs hope, Wilson could be a cheap LB4-type in larger leagues in 2021.
