IDP Sleepers, Week 9

A compilation of Individual Defensive Players Sleepers for week 9 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.


ILB Christian Kirksey (GB vs SF):

Kirksey has been on the IR since Week 3 and has been activated this week. There may be some concern about a snap count or being eased back into duty, but he has LB1 potential with a great matchup against the 49ers ground attack this week. All reports indicate he has been active in practice and should be all systems go again this week. Look for Kirksey to regain his leading role in this defense for the rest of the season.
