In the latest IDP Heatseekers show, Kraig, Paul and I cover the craziness that’s been the IDP Fantasy Football leaderboards so far. We cover each position group on the defensive side, and if we see their production keeping them in the top 10 or not. Some of the players in this episode include the following:
Steelers Cornerback Mike Hilton: Through 4 games he sits #2 overall in the IDP rankings, averaging over 20 fantasy points per game (depending on league scoring), the typical slot corner is being used alot to bring pressure off the edge, and has gotten home on 3 sacks, 27 tackles, 5 TFL’s and, 2 Assists and even a fumble recovery.
Cowboys Defensive End Aldon Smith: 2 very strong performances has some thinking he may have made a comeback, 4 sacks in 5 games will do that but do we think it will last?
John Johnson III, Los Angeles Rams Safety: Currently a top 10 fantasy safety, Johnson has produced 3 double-digit games in 5 weeks.
Roquan Smith, Chicago Bears Linebacker: A top 5 fantasy linebacker with double digit points every week this year, he seems to have bounced back from a not-so-good 2019 season.
Yannick Ngakoue, Minnesota Vikings Defensive End: The former Jaguars end is piling up the sacks without Danielle Hunter opposite him, having tallied 5 through 5 games.
