IDP Corner: Week 1 Takeaways & Top Waiver Adds

IDP Corner

Week 1 takeaways and top waiver adds

Welcome back football!!! Felt great to watch some games and of course watch my fantasy teams!! There were definitely some ups and downs when it came down to it, as to be somewhat expected with week one. Here are some takeaways from the week one action.

Definitely some good defensive showings this weekend. The Steelers and Bills game was almost all defense!! Both are great defenses that will be feared this season! TJ Watt proved why he was a good high pick in fantasy drafts, coming away with 3 solo tackles, 2 sacks and a forced fumble! Jordan Poyer remains hot after last year getting 5 solo 1 assist and a sack, along with Taron Johnson looking pretty good as well. Logan Ryan with the New York Giants had a very strong showing recording 8 solo tackles, 2 assists, 1 forced fumble and a fumble recovery.


Returning from injury last season it was great to see Nick Bosa return to his dominant form recording 4 solo tackles 3 of which were for a loss and a sack. The return of Danielle Hunter was one I’m sure all Vikings fans were pleased about. He looked great in his return. I think the Vikings defensive front looked pretty good all around. Eric Kendricks also had a great showing.

There were also some good rookie sightings this weekend. Kwity Paye had 2 solos 1 for a loss 1 assist and 1 fumble recovery. Tre Norwood of the Steelers looked pretty good in his debut getting 5 solos and 1 assist. The one that stings for me as a Packers fan was Paulson Adebo of the Saints getting that rare pick off of Aaron Rodgers. Linebackers Nick Bolton, Micah Parsons, and Azeez Ojulari all showed some good signs as well. 


He made my waiver add last week so I hope you all listened and grabbed him, but how about Chandler Jones!! What a performance!! 6 solo tackles, 4 for a loss, 5 sacks,  yes I repeat 5 Sacks!! And let’s not forget 2 forced fumbles! So needless to say he is definitely worth spending some FAB on! I swooped him up last week where I could and I’m glad I did! Hopefully he can stay healthy and keep putting up some great numbers!
