Now let’s move on to our top IDP waiver wire pickups for week 15!

Hau’Oli Kikaha (DE, NO)

Another week has gone by where a Saints defensive lineman has been injured once again, this week the victim was rookie Trey Hendrickson, who is expected to miss the remainder of the regular season. Hau’Oli Kikaha will absorb more snaps over the final three weeks and has already seen an increasing share of snaps ever since Saints defensive end Alex Okafor was placed on injured reserve.

Shelby Harris (DE, DEN)

Another defensive lineman who has served as an injury replacement in the past few weeks is Broncos defensive end, Shelby Harris. Harris has seen 64% of defensive snaps for Denver in the last three weeks and has managed to record sacks in the last two games. With remaining games against Indianapolis, Washington, and Kansas City, Harris and the rest of the Broncos pass rushers will have ample opportunity to bolster their sack numbers by season’s end.

Michael Wilhoite (MLB, SEA)

Seahawks linebackers were dropping like flies in week 14 and now someone has to step up to replace the production of Bobby Wagner and K.J. Wright. Michael Wilhoite will most likely be the man to wear the green dot for Seattle and play MIKE, while both D.J. Alexander and Terence Garvin should also see playing time at WILL and SAM. Rams coach Sean McVay said he plans on getting star running back Todd Gurley more involved moving forward, and he should see plenty of touches against a depleted Seahawks linebacking corps.

Craig Robertson (MLB, NO)

Craig Robertson will most likely be on the field for 100% of the Saints defensive snaps once again this week for New Orleans, as A.J. Klein injured his groin and will have to sit out. Robertson won’t have the best matchup this week against the Jets but in week 16 the Saints will host Atlanta, who Robertson just had eight total tackles against.

Matt Milano (ILB, BUF)

Changing of the guard seems to be underway in Buffalo, as the Bills coaching staff has decided to start rookie Matt Milano over veteran linebacker Ramon Humber. Milano saw 51 snaps compared to Humber’s 20 and I expect that trend will continue over the season’s final three games. Humber and teammate Preston Brown will both be undrafted free agents at year’s end, and the Bills need to know what they have in the youngster Milano.

Sean Davis (SS, PIT)

Following Ryan Shazier’s season-ending injury in week 13, the biggest question in regards to Pittsburgh’s defense was who would increase their production as a result of Shazier’s absence. Safety Sean Davis was the biggest beneficiary in week 14, as the second-year safety played closer to the line of scrimmage. He will benefit from facing the Patriots this Sunday, who have allowed the most points to defensive backs this season.
