Week 7 IDP Free Agent Focus

By Matt Schauf 1:10pm EDT 10/17/16

Justin Houston, OLB, Chiefs

The team announced last week that Houston had been cleared to resume “football activity” as he returns from an offseason ACL repair. He’s eligible to come off the PUP Tuesday, but we still might not see him for a few weeks. The Chiefs will have 21 days to either activate him or put him on IR.

One of the league’s top pass rushers when healthy, Houston’s worth grabbing now in IDP leagues of moderate depth. K.C. ranks 31st in the league with just 7 sacks through 5 games, so the D badly needs Houston back in place.

Keanu Neal, S, Falcons

The Falcons might still be figuring out their LB crew after getting Deion Jones and De’Vondre Campbell back from ankle sprains Sunday against Seattle. Each rookie played less than 40% of the snaps in that game, while 3rd safety Kemal Ishmael started at LB and played 65%,

Neal, meanwhile, was among just 4 players who spent more time on the field than Ishmael. He lined up for all but 1 of Atlanta’s defensive plays and led the team with 10 tackles, adding a pass breakup and a forced fumble.

That makes 3 straight games of 8+ total tackles for the rookie safety, who’s looking like the best current bet to lead the team in tackles through the rest of the season.
