Week 10 IDP Free Agent Focus

Olivier Vernon, DE, Giants

Perhaps this mention makes your face twist in confusion because he’s been owned in your league since draft day. But we’d bet there are leagues out there that saw Vernon get dropped as he was tallying just 1 sack through his 1st 7 games as a Giant.

But DC Steve Spagnuolo moved him from right end to left 3 games ago, which will nearly always pit him against an opponent’s weaker (or, at least, less athletic) OT. Plus, Vernon said last week that a wrist injury had bothered him through the 1st 7 weeks but felt better coming out of the bye.

He finally delivered his 2nd sack of the year Sunday and has collected 4 solo tackles in 3 of his past 4 games. Next comes a Cincinnati offense that entered Week 9 ranked 2nd worst in Football Outsiders’ adjusted sack rate.

A healthier Vernon could also simply turn into a near-weekly starter for you.
