Free Agent Focus

Week 11 IDP Free Agent Focus

By Matt Schauf 10:10pm EST 11/14/21


Zach Allen, DE, Cardinals

Allen set his 4th straight season high for snap share in Sunday's loss to the Panthers. His 3 games since J.J. Watt's season-ending shoulder injury have produced shares of 78%, 80% and 87%. Allen isn't a high-upside pass-rusher, but he has registered a QB hit in 3 of his pats 4 games, including sacks in 2 of them. He's also had 5+ tackles in 3 of those 4 games. Play volume obviously helps on that front.

The next 2 weeks bring upside matchups with Seattle and Chicago. Especially in tackle-heavy setups, Allen looks like a solid-to-strong add.

Dorance Armstrong, DE, Cowboys

Armstrong delivered a sack among 3 QB hits in the 1st game since DE Randy Gregory went down. Next comes a Chiefs offense that’s a tricky matchup. Kansas City doesn’t rate particularly friendly in sacks or pressure allowed. But they did allow 3 sacks to Washington and 4 sacks to Tennessee. There’s upside for a deep IDP league.


Jayon Brown, LB, Titans

Brown got back to full playing time in Sunday’s win over the Saints. He racked up 10 tackles, including a team-high 8 solos. We’ll see what changes when both Rashaan Evans and David Long return healthy, but a full-strength Brown has been the team’s strongest all-around LB for years. Brown should be rostered this week where he didn’t ahead of the Week 10 games.


Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, LB, Browns

JOK had climbed to the top of the position among Browns in playing time before his high-ankle sprain. He had a quiet return from 3 games on IR in Sunday’s loss to the Patriots, but we’d expect the rookie to climb back to his previous perch. The next 2 weeks bring positive matchups for LB scoring in the Lions and Ravens.


Alex Anzalone, LB, Lions

Anzalone remains Detroit’s only full-time LB. He translated that to a team-high 9 tackles (6 solo) in Sunday’s OT tie with Pittsburgh. Next comes an upside matchup with the Browns, who entered Week 10 supplying the 8th most fantasy points to LBs. That includes providing the league’s 8th most tackles per game to LBs. Nick Chubb’s likely return from the COVID list should only further motivate Cleveland to keep the ball on the ground and supply those tackle opportunities.


Brandon Jones, S, Dolphins

I've been hesitant to promote Jones. He's a shaky-to-poor coverage player, and the Dolphins safety situation was fluid early in the year. But Jones has seen 94%+ playing time in 3 straight games. Jones has tallied a decent 6, 7 and 7 tackles in those contests and quietly collected 3 QB hits. Jones doesn’t have a sack since Week 3 (when he notched 2 of them), but the opportunity is there. Jones has seen 47 pass-rushing reps over those 3 full-time appearances. Next comes a Jets matchup that could allow Jones to really maximize his upside.


Donovan Wilson, S, Cowboys

Wilson took over Damontae Kazee's starting job in Sunday's beatdown of the Falcons, playing 94% of the snaps to rank 2nd among Dallas defenders. Wilson managed just 2 tackles in a game that saw the Cowboys collect only 50 as a team (compared with 75 for the Atlanta defense). But play volume shouldn't be an issue in a Week 11 visit to Kansas City. The Chiefs are allowing the 5th-most fantasy points per game to DBs.
