Week 2 IDP Free Agent Focus

By Matt Schauf 7:44am EDT 9/15/14

IDP formats vary even more widely than do the offensive setups across fantasy football leagues. So not every player listed in this weekly article will necessarily make sense for your league. Please feel free to send me your IDP questions anytime at info@draftsharks.com.


Jason Hatcher, DE, Washington

Hatcher's 11 sacks last year in his age-31 season topped his previous high by 6.5. Then free agency moved him from what seemed like an ideal spot as the "under" tackle in Dallas' 4-3 front to a DE in Washington's 3-4. There appeared to be plenty of reason to be wary of regression. Not anymore.

Hatcher opened his Washington stint with 5 tackles, a pass deflection and a QB hit at Houston in Week 1. (He originally got credit for a sack before a mid-week scoring change took it away.) Then Week 2 brought 1.5 sacks and 4 more tackles.

Hatcher matches up next week with a Philly offense that allowed 5 sacks to the Jaguars in Week 1. Then come the Giants, who yielded 10 QB hits to the Cardinals on Sunday.
