Week 10 IDP Free Agent Focus

By Matt Schauf 8:11pm EST 11/3/19


Olivier Vernon, DE, Browns

One more call for this guy: Vernon supplied just 1 sack through the season’s first 6 games. He has now posted 1 in each of 2 outings since the Week 7 bye. Upside matchups with Buffalo, Miami, Cincinnati and Arizona still lie ahead.


Chris Jones, DT, Chiefs

Jones returned from 3 games lost to a groin injury with Kansas City’s lone sack in Sunday’s win over the Vikings. If he made it to your waiver wire while injured, then make sure he’s off before the Week 10 visit to Tennessee.


Jason Pierre-Paul, DE/OLB, Buccaneers

Pierre-Paul had a fairly quiet statistical outing in Sunday’s loss to the Seahawks, with just 1 solo among his 3 total tackles and a half sack. But JPP racked up 3 total QB hits and a pass deflection. He gets another fine matchup for pass-rushing in a home date with Arizona next Sunday. And a healthy Pierre-Paul has wasted little time in reminding us of his impact.


Devin White, LB, Buccaneers

I don’t think White belongs in this space. He should be owned in all IDP leagues deep enough to warrant a waiver-wire article. But I’ve seen a surprising number over IDP owners questioning the value of White over the past week -- even on a dynasty level. Well, the 1st-round pick delivered 12 tackles in Sunday’s loss to the Seahawks, a half-sack, 2 forced fumbles and 2 QB hits. If White’s sitting free in your league, make sure he doesn’t stay there.


Alexander Johnson, LB, Broncos

Johnson delivered his biggest tackle line to date with 13 (6 solo) in Sunday’s win over the Browns. That marked his 4th game of 8+ tackles among 5 in the starting lineup. Johnson added nothing in the big-play categories against the Browns but provided numbers there in previous games. He’s worth holding through the Week 10 bye if you can -- and grabbing if someone else drops him for a fill-in.


Fred Warner, LB, 49ers

Warner is bound to gain some tackle upside after Kwon Alexander's season-ending pectoral tear Thursday night. Warner finished with a season-high 9 tackles in Thursday night's win over the Cardinals. That followed a decent 3 games of 5 solo tackles among his previous 4. We'll see what his numbers look like in Week 10 at Seattle. But Warner should be worth a LB3 spot while we await those results.

Brandon Copeland, LB, Jets

Just at ILB, the Jets have so far lost Avery Williamson and Blake Cashman for the season, C.J. Mosley for most of the season (and more weeks still ahead) and Neville Hewitt for multiple weeks to date. That left Copeland and James Burgess manning the area against the Dolphins on Sunday. Copeland led the way with 8 tackles (7 solo) and a sack among his 2 tackles for loss. We’ll see about the playing time numbers when they come out, but Copeland looks like a potential IDP starter against the Giants in Week 10.


Tavon Wilson, S, Lions

Wilson has tallied 7 tackles in each of the 2 games since Detroit traded S Quandre Diggs to the Seahawks. He posted 7 solos in Sunday’s loss to the Raiders after notching 6 solos in the Week 8 win over the Giants. Expect Wilson to remain in the starting lineup even after SS Tracy Walker returns from the knee injury that kept him out at Oakland.
