Here are IDP players you should consider rostering for week 2:
Aldon Smith, Dallas: There was some concern how Smith would play after coming back. He did well with a stat line: six solo tackles, five assisted tackles, one sack, and one tackle for loss.
First be sure and check how your league is classifying Smith. He will play all over the field which is only an added bonus to your fantasy stat line so pick him up. Week one Smith led all Dallas edge rushers with 54 snaps,, 3 pressures and a pass-rush win-rate 17.4 percent.

This week Dallas plays Atlanta which is a favorable match-up to accrue fantasy stats.
Jeremiah Attaochu, Denver: The Broncos were slightly disheartened when Von Miller went down with season ending injury in preseason. Their worries lessened slightly with the play on Attaochu on Monday night.
Attaochu played 74 percent of the defensive snaps. He accounted for five quarterback pressures, three solo tackles, one assisted tackle, and one sack. He is worth an add and a roster spot as the Broncos play the Pittsburgh Steelers this week.
Jon Bostic, Washington: Not sure if you saw the Washington game against Philadelphia last week, but their front seven is nasty. Bostic finished the game with five solo tackles, two assisted tackles, and one sack. He was on the field for every defensive snap.
Thomas Davis is hurt and Reuben Foster is on IR, the Washington front was still really good. If you don’t have rookie Chase Young go get Bostic.
Josh Jones, Jacksonville: The stories of the Jaguars demise may have been slightly premature. And Pro Football Focus hype on Jones seems to be on target. Jones racked up six solo tackles, six assisted tackles while earing a 79.0 grade against the run and a 84.0 tackling grade.
Jeremy Chinn, Carolina: Week one say Chinn starting at strong-side safety. He was on the field for all 63 defensive snaps. He finished the game with seven solo tackles and one assisted tackle.

The Panthers’ defense is young and Chinn leads the youngsters and his versatility will keep him on the field.
Good Luck and remember keep in mind how your league scores and then dominate.
