Howdy Rush Nation, welcome back to my Individual Defensive Player (IDP) arcadia and my IDP Streamers Week 14 selections My name is Mason, and my job is to find you the top defensive fantasy streamers of the week. Only but one rule applies around these parts: each player discussed will be rostered by no more than twenty percent of fantasy managers (via Yahoo).
(DL) Jack Crawford TEN @ JAX- 0% Rostered- (1.69 projection)
Jack’s snap count has fluctuated for most of the year. He is coming off of his best game of the season(6 Tackles, 1 TFL), and I expect Tennesse to come out swinging. I believe momentum will carry over for Crawford as he will be a force in the trenches against an actively struggling Jacksonville offense.
(DL) David Onyemata- NO @ PHI- 3% Rostered- (2.97 projection)
David is no stranger to this streaming article as he is one of my favorite defensive players. The guy can create havoc on the line anytime and is a stellar complement to teammate C. Jordan. I expect Onyemata to be in the backfield often and assist in making Hurts rookie debut a dismal one.
(LB) Germaine Pratt – CIN vs. DAL 1% Rostered- (5.51 projection)
Pratt averages forty-two snap a game and have a fantastic matchup against a struggling Cowboys offense. When Dallas is the away team, they average twenty-eight rushes a game, and Germaine is a young player who can meet the tackler in the backfield and wrap him up. The Bengals send a blitz about 32% of defensive plays, and Dallas’s line is heavily injured, so I love the matchup here.
(LB) A.J. Johnson – DEN @ CAR- 18% Rostered- (7.12 projection)
Johnson is a fantastic player in zone coverage and is quite speedy at spotting the play as it unfolds and quickly responds to it. This week A.J. and company head to a “recovering” Carolina team. Denver allows only 6.3 yards per pass attempt; A.J. has fifty-nine tackles and four for loss on the season.
(DB) Darnell Savage- GB @ DET – 1% Rostered- (5.64 projection)
Savage lives up to his name when he tackles defenders in space, lunging his body into the ball carrier’s legs, sometimes causing a fumble and celebrating to the sideline with that “Cheese Head Swagger.” Thirty-two tackles and eight pass defenses on the year, I expect Darnell to be active in the passing game and assist the linebackers at the second level against Detroit’s run game in this storied rivalry.
(DB) Jarrod Wilson – JAC vs. TEN – 0% Rostered- (5.58 projection)
Wilson has been somewhat quiet this season, but that is about to change. The Titans are looking like they will have all of their weapons on offense this week. Jarrod is a heads up player who has the IQ to strip the ball and close in on players for a tackle. The opportunity is there; I think Wilson rises to the occasion.
(CB) Michael Ojemudia – DEN @ CAR – 0% Rostered – (2.00 projection)
Michael has seen his ups and downs on the season, as he saw his starting position fade in week ten due to a “matchup preference.” Ojemudia averages forty-two play a game, and with Carolina gaining back some players off of covid protocol, I see massive upside for Michael. He is not the most polished tackle; however, he has a knack for knocking the ball away from the receiver.
That is all I have for this IDP Streamers Week 14 slate; a thousand thank yous for reading and good luck in your final push to your fantasy playoffs. My line is always open; here’s to week 14, and as always, happy streaming Rush Nation!
