It is Week 8, and the Baltimore Ravens and Las Vegas Raiders are on a bye. So you need an IDP replacement for your fantasy football team? Here are a few to choose from.
David Long, Tennessee Titans @ Indianapolis Colts
The line for this game is Colts -2.5.
In Week 7, Long had six solo tackles, two assisted tackles, one tackle for loss, and two passes defended. He leads the team with 51 tackles for the season, and he also has five quarterback pressures and four tackles for losses.

The Colts are 10th in an average time of possession (31:30).
Julian Okwara, Detroit Lions vs., Philadelphia Eagles
The line for this game is Eagles -3.5
Okwara has had a sack in two straight games. He also had three tackles, one sack, one tackle for loss, and one pass defended last week.
Last week, the Eagles scored a touchdown in the first quarter. Their next six possessions ended with punt, punt, fumble, punt, and fumble.
The Eagles’ offense is doing all it can to help out opposing defenses.
Jonathan Greenard, Houston Texans vs. Los Angeles Rams
The line for this game Rams -16
The fact that the Texans are a hot mess sucks for them but is ideal for your IDP stats. Case in point, Greenard is just putting up numbers, and he has six sacks in five games, and last week he had four tackles, two sacks, and one pass defended.

The Rams average 61.57 offensive plays per game, and they are on the field for an average of 29:43. Plenty of time for Greenard to pad those stats.
Marcus Maye, New York Jets vs. Cincinnati Bengals
The line for this game Bengals -10.5
There is something to be said for a completely inept offense. Maye returned to the field for the first time since Week 3. In Week 7 against the New England Patriots, he had seven solo tackles, five assisted tackles, one tackle for loss, and one pass defended.
The Bengals and Joe Burrow pass the ball an average of 30.4 times a game. Their offense averages 59.4 plays per game. Maye should have plenty of opportunity to pad his stats.
