IDP Upgrades: Week 14

Aaron Rudnicki takes a look around the league to see which IDPs are moving up or down in value this week.

This article attempts to immediately highlight defensive players whose production was significantly better or worse than normally expected for the prior week of games. Note there is sometimes limited information available when this article is written, but I will try to give everyone an early look at players who are moving up or down in value among IDP circles. When warranted, I'll also call out some players under No Change that tries to explain why the stat lines may be misleading. It’s difficult to give waiver advice for IDPs since there is such a wide variety of lineups and scoring systems, but hopefully, the information provided can help inform your waiver, trade, and upcoming lineup decisions. If you have any questions about specific players or situations, feel free to email me or reach out via Twitter.

DT David Onyemata, NO (2 solos, 2 asst, 1 sack, 1 TFL, 1 QH)
The Saints welcomed back Sheldon Rankins this week but then lost Malcolm Brown after just four snaps. That allowed Onyemata to retain his recent workload as he played 48 snaps (72%) and continued his impressive play. Over his last 6 games, he has only had one poor showing while collecting four sacks with an interception.

CB A.J. Terrell, ATL (8 solos, 1 asst, 1 TFL, 1 FF, 1 PD)
Terrell has likely been the best rookie corner in the league this year and looks like a nice building block for the Falcons after they drafted him 16th overall. He missed two games due to COVID-19 earlier this year but has been coming on strong from a fantasy perspective with 16 solos and two forced fumbles over his last three games. He had his hands full with Michael Thomas in two of those games but also has matchups with the Buccaneers and Chiefs left on the schedule so should remain busy.


DE Marcus Davenport, NO (DNP)
Davenport is having a difficult season as he missed the first four games of the year while recovering from an injury. He collected just 1.5 sacks in seven games played but had none in his last four, and then he was held out this week while recovering from concussion symptoms that showed up mid-week. Cameron Jordan (88%) and Trey Hendrickson (69%) handled most of the workload in his absence.
