Fantasy Football IDP Report: Week 1
Ivar Anderson breaks down the defensive injuries you should be aware of heading into Week 1.
Who is ready for some football? Anyone reading this article, I am willing to wager. In the coming weeks, this space will highlight those defensive players that are on the move, whether up in the rankings, or dropping off the list of IDP you want on your roster. There will also be a handy short list of the waiver wire options, those players that you have a chance to snap up and that have been given a fuller profile in the opening portion of the article to assist with your add/drop decision(s). A matchup discussion will also appear once we have enough statistical data to provide realistic analysis of just how offenses and defenses are performing this season, probably around Week 3 or thereabouts.
Every week will also wrap up with the current injury report and that is just what you will find presented immediately below. Injury reports are notoriously unreliable despite the league’s efforts to compel full disclosure, and with the activation/deactivation time frame being shortened this season, it will behoove you to check the game day injury reports carefully when setting your lineups for the weekly matchups, especially on Sunday and Monday.

All the injury reports below need evaluation prior to kickoff. Teams are notoriously sketchy about injury reports, and we often do not know a player's status until just before game time. Consider the list below as a "heads up" as to what is going on early in the week, and should not be considered definitive.
