NFL 2021: Week 7 Put In and Play IDP Streamers

Welcome to Week 7 of the NFL, where streaming players is a priority.  Now that six teams are on a bye this week, your IDP Streamers, defenses, and positional players will be an important acquisition.

So let’s get this party going.

LINEBACKERS

COREY LITTLETON, LAS VEGAS RAIDERS

The Raiders will be hosting the Philadelphia Eagles this week.  If you are in a tackle-heavy league, look no further.  Last week against the Denver Broncos, Littleton gathered 11 tackles and 0.5 sacks.

In six games this season, he has 53 tackles, 0.5 sacks, one quarterback hurry, and two passes defended. 

Littleton is currently rostered in 10.4% of Yahoo leagues.

BOBBY OKEREKE, INDIANAPOLIS COLTS

The Colts will be visiting the San Francisco Niners this week. 

Okereke is amazingly only rostered in 7% of Yahoo leagues, and that is disheartening for a man who has at least six solo tackles in three of his last four games.  Last week, he had 14 tackles ( nine solo and five assists), and he has 50 tackles and one sack for the season so far.

DEFENSIVE LINE

AUSTIN JOHNSON, NEW YORK GIANTS

The Giants will play the Carolina Panthers and Sam Darnold this week.  This is good news for the 4% of you who have rostered Johnson and better news for those who picked him up to play. 

We all know about Darnold’s interceptions, but he has been sacked five, three, and four times in the last three weeks.

Just in time, Johnson has a sack in three different games and at least four takedowns in every game.

JONATHAN GREENWOOD, HOUSTON TEXANS

The Texans released Whitney Mercilus on Monday.  Now is the time to jump on the Greenwood train. 

The Texans’ offense time of possession averages 28:18, 25th in the league.  That means the defense is spending a lot of time on the field. 

Last week, Greenwood spent his time accumulating six sacks, two sacks, and two tackles for loss, and he now has four sacks in four games.

This week, the Texans travel to Arizona, where they are a 17.5 point underdog.  That is a lot of time for Greenwood to continue sack pursuit.

DEFENSIVE BACKS

QUANDRE DIGGS, SAFETY, SEATTLE SEAHAWKS

Rostered in 10.3% Yahoo leagues, Diggs is ballin.  He had a down week last week, only getting two sacks, but things are looking to change.

This week, the Seahawks host the New Orleans Saints on Monday Night Football.  Jameis Winston is usually good for at least one interception, and Diggs two interceptions, three passes defended, and 38 tackles will be ready.

KAMREN, CURL, SAFETY, WFT

Week 6 Curl’s stat line included nine tackles and one fumble recovery.  He also played on every defensive snap. 

This week at Lambeau Field against the Green Bay Packers offense, who average 30:59 time of possession, will give Curl ample time to keep improving on his stat line. 

Curl is currently rostered in 3% of Yahoo leagues.

CONCLUSION

This week is an anomaly. Six teams on a bye…come on!  But that gives you plenty of opportunities not just to find and roster players you may not have considered, but players (ahem Greenwood) that will be in for increased attention.

Good Luck!
