Week 15 IDP Waiver Pickups
Starting with DB Waiver Wire pickups:
FS Jarred Page for the Chiefs vs. San Diego
Raiders Free Safety had a big game vs. San Diego week 15
KC FS Jarrad Page (had 8-1 vs. Den last week) and gets San Diego this week
SS J. Phillips for the Bucs has been on fire since he's been on back with multiple INTs and tackle opportunities. He'll be playing hard once against division foe Atlanta.
SS Michael Lewis vs. Miami
Bryan Scott went off vs. Miami last week with 9 solos & an assist and nothing needs to be said about one of the most elite Strong Safeties (he's on my waiver wire so that's why I list him here on waiver pick-ups)
SS Pollard for KC vs. SD
A strong rivalry, SD trend all years gives up a lot of tackles to the SS and Pollard has been very solid all year.
DB Sleeper of the Week: SS Bryan Scott He has another great start vs NYJ where every SS all year has done well. Scott had 9 tackles last week. (warning: Scott only had 3 tackles last time he played the Jets so he's a boom or bust guy this week) The good news is Buffalo will probably be behind with Losman or an injured Edwards at the helm. So the Jets will be running T. Jones and doing quick passes over the middle. Lots of opportunities for Scott here.
Linebacker Pickups for Week 15:
Paris Lenon this week? At first glance against the Colts, I would say "No". However, Dhani Jones had 9 total tackles against Indy last week and the Lions defense will be on the field a lot. Lenon had his best game of the year last week with 10 total tackles a half sack and 2 forced fumbles against the Vikings. Whether it's Dominic Rhodes or Addai, every team runs on Detroit.
LB R. Jeanty vs. Washinton Redskins should do very well. He has been quietly solid for weeks now and everyone knows the Skins run the ball and despite the Skins latest losing streak, they should be good enough against Cincy not fall behind enough to desert the run game.
Akeem Jordan vs. Cleveland on MNF
This is a bit of a boom or bust play because they may blow out the Browns so badly that Cleveland will abandon the run. However, if you're like me, you love to have players in the MNF game. It makes you feel like you still have a chance if you're behind when the Sunday night games end.
P. Tinoisamoa had 9 solos vs. Arizona last week. He get's Seattle next week and is a nice option as Seattle will be able to stay in the game and run a lot against St. Louis.
Keith Brooking vs Tampa Bay he's been rolling the last couple weeks and has a great matchup against TB in week 15
Linebackers Sleeper of the week: Shanle with 7tkls 2 assist vs. Falcons & 8 tackles the week before gets run first Chicago on Thursday night
Week 15 DTs:
Nose Tackle vs. Jags last week A Adam for Chicago lead the team in tackles from NT with 6-2
DT Richard Seymour gets the Oakland this week. Did you know that Seymour has 6.5 sacks in the last 8 games he's played in. You don't get more consistent production from this position than that. And with the Raiders guaranteed to be trailing this one, Seymour will get sack opportunities in this one.
