Giants’ DE Damontre Moore Highlights IDP Waiver Wire Week 15

Giants' DE Damontre Moore is a top pickup for IDP Waiver Wire Week 15

Well, for me, I’m one and done in one of my leagues and looking at a 4 seed in my all-IDP dynasty league. I hope this has been a successful fantasy season for all of you and you are still benefitting from these waiver wire suggestions. If you are in the playoffs, stick with your plan and play the guys that have gotten you to the dance. These suggestions, hopefully, can add depth to your roster and prevent your opponents from picking these guys up. Good luck as you progress in your playoff march as you look to add names in the IDP Waiver Wire Week 15.

Before we get to Week 14, here’s how my suggestions from last week fared:

Chris Long, DE, STL: 1 tackle
Fletcher Cox, DE, PHI: 11 tackles
Jeremy Mincey, DE, DAL: 0 stats
Jason Worilds, OLB, PIT: 6 tackles
David Hawthorne, ILB, NOS: 5 tackles/1 defended pass
Jon Bostic, OLB, CHI: 7 tackles
Devin McCourty, FS, NEP: 4 tackles/1 defended pass
Trumaine Johnson, CB, STL: 8 tackles/1 defended pass
Jumal Rolle, CB, HOU: 1 tackle

Now, here are the suggestions for your IDP Waiver Wire 15:

Defensive Line

Malik Jackson, DE, DEN: Jackson saw his highest usage of the season, appearing in 60 percent of the snaps in Week 14 and has been in on over 50 percent over the last several weeks. He’s generating consistent pressure this season, over 10 percent of the time. I like the match-up for him on the right side of the KC offensive line and will be worth adding this week. If you need the match-up play this week, I might consider him playing alongside Demarcus Ware, who’s garnering a lot of attention.

Damontre Moore, DE, NYG: Like Jackson, Moore saw his highest usage rate this season, appearing in 75 percent of the snaps, thanks to various injuries on the defensive line. What did he do with this opportunity? He notched two QB sacks and two QB hits on 36 blitzes. He’s been a solid blitzer all season, but has been in a logjam on the defensive line, but overall, he’s generating pressure on 15 percent of his blitzes, and recorded five sacks all in a total of a 30 percent usage rate. Pick him for the rest of the season, especially this week against the Redskins, as he should line up over Tom Compton, who’s allowed five sacks in the last four games.

Jaye Howard, DE, KCC: Howard got the nod with Allen Bailey out and if he gets another start this week, could be worth a look. Even though he saw 30 snaps, he was still able to generate 2 combined QB hits/hurries in 10 blitzes. He also recorded four total tackles in his time on the field. If Bailey is out once again, he could be worth a look in deeper leagues.

 

Linebacker

Will Compton, ILB, WAS: Keep an eye on Keenan Robinson‘s status throughout the week. Compton got the start inside and was in on 100 of the snaps. He came in and produced a 14 tackle rate, notching 14 total tackles. He’s capable of getting to the ball carrier when on the field and makes for a decent handcuff if you’re a Robinson owner.

Gerald Hodges, OLB, MIA: Hodges made the start for Anthony Barr, who’s status is still up in the air at this time. Hodges saw a 72 usage rate on the field and produced a pick-six and eight total tackles. He’s recorded six or more tackles in four games this season, so he can get to the ball and is producing a 0.27 points per snap rate.

Elvis Dumervil, OLB, BAL: In big play scoring formats, Dumervil has been a monster and recorded his seventh multi-sack game of the season. He has eight games of double-digit fantasy points and is producing 0.23 points per snap. He’s up to 16 sacks, with three yet to play, and is generating pressure on 13 percent of blitzes.

 

Defensive Back

Orlando Scandrick, CB, DAL: Scandrick has consecutive weeks of double-digit fantasy points and has a great match-up against the Eagles this week. He was targeted 10 times in Week 14 and was thrown at six times against Philly in Week 13. I like Scandrick as a nice pick-up in CB-required leagues this week.

Pierre Warren, FS, NOS: Warren has seen a 96 percent usage rate over the last three games since taking over for Rafael Bush in Week 12. It’s led to three straight games of double-digit fantasy points, inclduing two games of 16 points or more, leading to a 0.22 points per snap rate. He’ll be worth the addition with nice match-ups against the Bears and Falcons over the next two games.

Bene Benwikere, CB, CAR: It’s all about opportunity and he’s next man up on the CB totem pole in Carolina. He saw 10 targets in Week 14 on 71 snaps. The kid made plays, notching eight tackles and making a play on the ball on 30 percent of those targets, including an INT. He should see plenty of action against Tampa Bay and makes a worthwhile addition in CB-required leauges.
