IDP Waiver Wire Targets

Jonathan Cooper, DL, Denver Broncos

Cooper has filled in admirably since Von Miller was traded, and now he has a great matchup on deck against the Las Vegas Raiders.

Darrel Taylor, DL, Seattle Seahawks

Taylor has quietly been chugging along as a solid DL all season long. Partially due to the fact that he's been SO inconsistent.

However, he draws a favorable matchup this week against Justin Fields and Chicago. Between poor offensive line play, and rookie quarterback growing pains, Taylor is set for a good day.

Andrew Wingard, DB, Jacksonville Jaguars

Wingard is another player who's been reasonably helpful all year although he lacks the big game and big plays so he's a pretty under-the-radar type of guy.

If you're hurting at DB like everyone is, you could do worse.

Amani Oruwariye, CB, Detroit Lions

Amani has been an awesome asset to have down the stretch. He had a down week last week but bounced back in Week 15.

He's been what everyone wanted Jeff Okudah to be. Yeah I know he was doing better before he was lost to injury this year, just let me have this one.

He racks up tackles and most importantly big plays and QBs still target him. Oh well, more points for me.

I don't normally talk corners but I like this guy and I'm adding him everywhere to help my playoff teams.

Kwon Alexander, LB, New Orleans Saints

As someone who holds Kwon Alexander very near and dear to my heart, it's nice to see him string together some worthwhile games and stay healthy doing so.

He's managed double-digit point totals for four straight weeks and he's managed to do so in multiple ways.

He's set up for some solid matchups to finish up his season.

Zach Cunningham, LB, Tennessee Titans

This one's a long shot. There's a chance that when Cunningham was released by the Texans that his Fantasy Managers dropped him as well(if not before that).

I could see this going very similarly to the Jaylon Smith situation where he gets added just to be cut again weeks later and fade into obscurity.

However, there's history here between Cunningham and head coach Mike Vrabel. Vrabel was Cunningham's LB coach and defensive coordinator prior to being hired on as head coach in Tennessee.

In his second game with the team, he received 33 snaps (about 75%) and accrued 6 total tackles. I expect his role to keep growing.

Dynasty Stashes

Derrick Barnes, LB, Detroit Lions

Barnes could receive additional work going forward with Josh Woods and Alex Anzalone ending up hurt this past weekend. I'm cautious to start him, but the buy-low window could be closing.

At some point, the Lions are going to start turning over this defense to young players that can turn into stars. For now, they're intent on letting journeymen like Alex Anzalone have their fun.

Next year may be a different story with another year under Barnes' belt, he should be able to contribute at a higher level.

Ernest Jones, LB, Los Angeles Rams

Jones hasn't quite found the consistency you like to see yet, but he has flashed some serious upside and playmaking ability.

We know the Rams starting linebacker role can be valuable, "will Jones step up and be that guy long-term?", is the question.

He has good matchups coming up to finish up the season. Now's the time to buy in before he makes a big impact. He could start for you if you're desperate.

Garret Wallow, LB, Houston Texans

Now here's a deep dive for you deep deep leaguers. This is purely looking at what's ahead of him on this roster.

With Christian Kirksey and Kamu Grugier-Hill missing time due to COVID, this left Wallow with an opportunity and he crushed it. He racked up 11 tackles and a sack in Week 15. He's probably not a secret anymore.

Going forward, there's little to no security for anyone ahead of him keeping their job. He's managed to work himself into some reps despite being a seventh-round pick in this past draft class.

His college production was awesome, he seemed like a decent enough player to me. If they add more linebackers or his situation doesn't change he didn't cost you anything to add anyway.
