IDP Dynasty Sleepers, Week 2 Footballguys

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


Duke Riley (PHI): There are tackles to be had for the Philly linebacking corps. Nate Gerry looks like he could lead the team in tackles but there certainly could be a second 'backer on this defense that provides decent value. Riley had looked like he was going to be an integral part of the Falcons' defense for awhile there, but ended up getting phased out and ultimately traded to the LB-depleted Eagles. Riley is just 26 so he has at least a couple of -- if not a few -- good years ahead of him. He logged 57 of the defense's 70 snaps in Week 1 (81%) and chipped in with 3 solos and 3 assists. If you're starved for a backup or third LB in a larger dynasty league, Riley looks like one of the best bets at this point, in terms of who may be available on your league's wire.

B.J. Goodson (CLE): Another team that was desperately seeking linebacker help in the off-season was Cleveland with the departure of Joe Schobert and Jamie Collins Sr. Mack Wilson was slated to be a big part of this defense but he's currently dinged up. Enter B.J. Goodson, a journeyman who's only 27 years old. Goodson was in on 83% of the defense's snaps Week 1 and provides a veteran presence for the young defense. He gobbled up 5 solos and chipped in with 4 assists as well last week. He certainly may be available on your waiver wire and could be a cheap source of a good volume of tackles.
