Lions’ LB Kyle Van Noy Is Worth a Look On Your IDP Waiver Wire Week 11

Kyle Van Noy will be worth a pick-up in deeper leagues from your IDP Waiver Wire

Well, I hope you picked up Chris Borland from your IDP waiver wire last week. His production has been off the charts the last two games and if he’s still available in your league, obviously, pick him up. We’re heading into Week 11, so here are some names to look as you pick the bones clean off your league’s IDP waiver wire.

Before we get to Week 11, here’s how my suggestions from last week fared:

Geno Atkins, DT, CIN: 1 tackle
Ryan Davis, DE, JAC: 2 tackles
Clinton McDonald, DT, TBB: 2 tackles/1 sack
Chris Borland, ILB, SFO: 17 tackles
Anthony Hitchens, OLB, DAL: 9 tackles
Akeem Ayers, OLB, NEP: Bye week
A.J. Bouye, CB, HOU: Bye week
Major Wright, SS, TBB: 4 tackles
Rafael Bush, FS, NOS: 7 tackles
Now, here are the suggestions for your Week 11 IDP Waiver Wire:

Defensive Line

Desmond Bryant, DE, CLE: Bryant had a big game under the big lights against the Bengals. He had his first multi-sack effort of the season and added six tackles. He’s been sent on 243 blitzes on the year, and though he’s not generating consistent pressure, he’s capable of having big games. He’ll be worth a look in big play scoring formats as bench depth.

Robert Ayers, DE, NYG: Ayers has sacks in consecutive weeks and now has four on the year. Ayers was held in check by the offensive line, after exploding against the Colts on Monday night. He’s not going to rack up tackles, but is generating pressure on nearly 18 percent of his blitzes, making him a solid addition in leagues that reward for the sacks, as opposed to tackle heavy formats.

Dontari Poe, DT, KCC: Like Ayers, Poe also has sacks in consecutive weeks. As a nose tackle, he’s producing decent points, as over the last three games he’s produced 10 or more fantasy points in two of his last three games with a 0.19 points per snap rate. If he’s not already taken in leagues reuqiring a DT starter, now would be the time grab him. The KC defense is swarming and Poe has been a big part of the blitz.



Bruce Carter, OLB, DAL: Carter’s snap counts have been inconsistent throughout the season, which is suprising, considering the injuries at the LB position. Carter saw 57 snaps (80 percent of the total) in Week 10, producing a 12.2 percent tackle rate (7 total) and also added his second INT. His snaps can be maddning and you have to hope he appears in 80 percent of the snaps for him to be productive. He’s worth adding for bench depth down the stretch of the fantasy regular season with his near 11 percent tackle rate.

Sam Barrington, ILB, GBP: Even thougb Barrington doesn’t appear on the field much, he’s shown to be productive. He saw 19 snaps against Chicago, recorded a sack and notched four tackles, including one for a loss. The game was a route and, unfortunately, Barrington didn’t see many passing snaps, however, he’ll be worth adding in deeper leagues with deep benches. Keep in mind, Packers seem to be going with their OLBs on the field, again, limiting Barrington’s production and appearances.

Kyle Van Noy, OLB, DET: Well, the bad news is that Kyle Van Noy saw just two snaps in Week 10. Good news? He had a 100 percent tackle rate, recording a tackle on both snaps. I still believe he’s going to be a good play and will see increased playing time going forward. This was his first time active this season, and playing on an aggressive defense, I think he gets his chances. He’ll be worth adding in deeper leagues as long as your bench allows for it.


Defensive Back

D.J. Hayden, CB, OAK: Hayden now has back to back weeks of double-digit fantasy points and has made a play on the ball on 43 percent of his last 14 targets. I like his match-up coming with the Chargers and remains a nice match-up play in leagues requiring a CB as he’s produced 0.21 points per snap in his last two games.

Demetrius McCray, CB, JAC: McCray has been thrown at 14 times in his last three games and is coming off a six solo tackle day, while throwing in two defended passes. Jags are on bye next week, but have favorable match-ups against the high octane Colts and turnover prone Eli Manning.

George Iloka, FS, CIN: In five games, Iloka has produced double-digit fantasy points in five of nine games this season. He’s been on the field for nearly all of the Bengals defensive snaps and is averaging just over five tackles per game and is making a play on the ball 65 percent of the time he’s thrown at. He doens’t leave the field and he creates opportunities.
