IDP Sleepers, Week 8

A compilation of Individual Defensive Players Sleepers for week 8 of the NFL season.

As the season progresses it is hard to find those diamonds in the rough or that guy that no one has heard of. This week we are going to examine the plethora of injuries across the league and who the most likely successor is to that starting job as well as highlight some prime matchups as well as surprising performers to this point. This article will also highlight a few long-term and speculative players that could see their value rise over the course of the season.


LB Neville Hewitt (NYJ vs KC):

It has been a strong start to the season for Hewitt who has played 100% of defensive snaps in all but a single game so far this season. His lowest tackling performance was 6 total tackles, and he has flashed double-digit upside twice this season. The Jets are taking on a Chiefs team that love to target the middle of the field and run between the tackles. There is a lot of tackling upside for Hewitt this week as he looks to add to his solid start to the season.
