Emmanuel Ogbah, DL, Miami Dolphins, 3%

The immediate replacement for Jaelan Phillps has a prime opportunity to produce this season. During Week 12 as a replacement, he was only able to acquire 24% of the snaps. In that small sample size, Ogbah notched 1.5 sacks, a forced fumble, and two tackles.  He will have no restrictions to playing time moving forward.  His next two matchups are against Washington and Tennesee, and NY Jets.

Andrew Van Ginkel, DL, Miami Dolphins, 4%

Another candidate for Phillip's snap is the player who replaced him early this year. Van Ginkel during Weeks 2-5 had four sacks in this position, so it is likely he could resume there. The only thing holding him back is his tweener ability to play all over the field so he could theoretically continue to play at linebacker, a position the Dolphins sorely need so more to follow.

Justin Madubuike, DL, Baltimore Ravens 14%

Averaging well over 60% of the snaps this season, and getting his 10th sack on the season, he should be playable everywhere despite being a defensive tackle. He has a bye week this week, but if you have room on your roster now take the chance, with upcoming matchups against the Rams and the Jaguars in Weeks 14 and 15.

Karl Brooks, DL, Greenbay Packers,0%

Here is a deep-dive player that most will overlook. Brooks is a sixth-round rookie draft pick, who has been outplaying players of higher pedigree this season. In the last two games, he has three tackles, one sack, and a forced fumble. Those are good numbers for DT-required leagues.

Anfernee Jennings, DL/LB, New England Patriots, 0%

Jennings is the latest lineman to go off on the Giants offensive line achieving 1.5 sacks in week 12. Believe it or not, he has been relevant now over the last six games, with over 70% snap count and a 4.5 tackle average. That is startable DL3 numbers to get you by if you are in a tough enough spot.

Jordan Battle, DB, Cincinnati Bengals, 7%

Another player we got right here last week. Still on waivers in many places for some odd reason. Since replacing Nick Scott in the lineup, he is averaging 10 tackles over the last two games with an 84% snap count.

This is a Dynasty and redraft move. Battle is another rookie with a high pedigree, as a four-star recruit coming from Alabama and was selected 95th overall.

Michael Hoecht, DL/LB Los Angeles Rams, 3%

Playing a hybrid role, he is often called a "'tweener". This player has been useful during bye weeks but in the last few games has become a strong DL2 for our lineups.

In his last five games alone he has, 83 percent snap count with four sacks, FF, and 27 tackles. Sometimes IDP you have to play the hot hand and volume is key.

SirVocea Dennis, LB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers 0%

Stepped right in as expected for an injured Lavontae David and produced instantly. On a 90% snap count with six tackles he is yet another linebacker to outplay Devin White this season.

Ivan Pace, LB, Minnesota Vikings, 19%

Last two weeks we have been talking up Ivan Pace and he always seems to exceed expectations. In week 12 he produced nine tackles and one sack. Might be the last week you could pick him up.

Best of the Rest
