IDP Sleeper Starters: Week 3

I will provide you weekly with a few options for players who will contribute to your fantasy team’s who are under fifty percent starters on MFL. Good luck to you and always be building.

Defensive End

Stephon Tuitt, PIT – Starting % 37 

You have a steady performer giving your 4.5 tackles a week to add into your lineup. Tampa Bay will be bringing a good offense, and this holds well for tackles and some QB pressures. This is a good option for anyone struggling at this position this week.

Jonathan Allen, WAS – Starting % 22 

This is another player bringing weekly tackles and one who has the upside to get his pass rush going. He had two QB hits a week ago, and I like his chances to get after Aaron Rodgers this week. He has high upside this week.


Reggie Ragland, KCC – Starting % 22 

Brought it week one with 7 tackles and added five last week. This week the 49s will be a plus matchup, and I would bet the over on five tackles this week. He will get to go against an offense that loves to run, and that is why I am getting him into my lineups this week. He is also available on waivers, so that’s a bonus add if you’re looking.

Jadeveon Clowney, HOU – Starting % 10!

It looks like he will play against the New York Giants and I LOVE his chances at getting pressure on Eli Manning and getting him onto the turf. This is a great add start in big play scoring formats. I’m expecting Manning to be running for his life against the Texans.  


A.J. Bouye, JAC – Starting % 41 

I like his matchup against Tennessee this week. Averaging 4 tackles a week I would bet he gets over that this week and stands a good chance at some plays in the passing game, deflected passes or an interception for him. My only pause would be Tennessee hasn’t given up a lot of points to corners, but I think Bouye will be aggressive and will build on his tackle totals and make some plays as Tennessee find themselves in ”must make pass plays” in this game.


Kurt Coleman, NOS – Starting % 32 

I like secondary players going against Atlanta, and I see no reason he won’t beat the average 4 tackles a game this week. He will be facing a solid offense, and that alone makes him a worthy flex start for you.

I hope you were able to find some helpful sleepers this week. Us fantasy owners are always looking to stash players and sneak in an extra lineup adjustment as we try for higher scores.
