Week 7 IDP Waiver Wire

IDP Waiver Wire

Nick Kwiatkoski returned to practice last week and appears close to being back on the field for the Bears.

 

Week 6 of the NFL season may have featured many key injuries to offensive stars in the league, but there were few headlining injuries on the defensive side of the ball this weekend. In this week’s IDP waiver wire report, we mostly highlight players who are either returning from a preexisting injury or have possibly just had their bye week and other players in your league may not be targeting them. Let’s get right into it!


 

Frank Clark (DE, SEA)

Following the possible career-ending injury that Cliff Avril suffered against the Colts in week 4, Frank Clark looks like he is the man to fill the void on the Seahawks line. Following the bye this past weekend, Clark and the rest of the Seahawks will face the New York Giants.

 

David Irving (DT, DAL)

The Cowboys are another team coming off of a week 6 bye, and David Irving was the most impressive player in the Cowboys last game, a blown game against the Packers in week 5. In his first game back from suspension, Irving posted two sacks and five total tackles.

 

Craig Robertson (WLB, NO)

Following Alex Anzalone’s season-ending shoulder injury in week 4, Saints veteran linebacker Craig Robertson has reclaimed his spot in New Orleans starting lineup and looks to be a great LB2/LB3 option for the rest of the season. There should be no reason Robertson can’t repeat his numbers from his 2016 season.


Matt Judon (OLB, BAL)

Ravens second-year linebacker played in a career-high 70 snaps this past weekend, tops among Ravens edge rushers, as he had a breakout game against the Chicago Bears. Judon recorded 14 total tackles and two sacks while lining up on the opposite side of Terrell Suggs.

 

Nick Kwiatkoski (ILB, CHI)

After suffering what originally seemed to be a season-ending injury back in week 2, Nick Kwiatkoski has had a great recovery and rejoined the Bears in practice last week, before being listed as inactive against the Ravens. With another full week of practice, Kwiatkoski is a great roster stash to make before he sees full playing time next to Danny Trevathan.

 

Reuben Foster (MLB, SF)

Another linebacker who has missed the majority of this season and is now returning from injury is 49ers rookie Reuben Foster. San Francisco’s first-round draft pick looked like he was about to be good to go against Washington last weekend, but his comeback will have to hold on one more week until the 49ers face the Dallas Cowboys this weekend.

 

Deone Bucannon (ILB, ARI)

“Money” Linebacker Deone Bucannon is fully recovered from a 2016 ankle injury that caused him to miss the first three games of the 2017 season. Bucannon led the Cardinals defense in tackles in week 6 with seven tackles and an assist in a victory over the Buccaneers.

 

Clayton Geathers (SS, IND)

After suffering an injury which landed him on season-ending IR to finish his 2016 season, Clayton Geathers appears to be close to making a full comeback to the field in the matter of a week or two. His neck injury is close to being fully healed and he should take over one of the Colts starting safety positions when he is ready to suit up.

 

T.J. Ward (SS, TB)

Although Justin Evans and Chris Conte have played well in T.J. Ward’s absence, make no mistake that he is the most talented defensive back on the Buccaneers roster. Ward returned to the field last week after missing two games with a hip injury and should see near 100% snaps this coming weekend against Buffalo.
