Week 10 IDP Waiver Wire and Breakout Performers

Every week throughout the NFL season I will bring you an IDP article talking about anything and everything that consists of IDP. I will talk about IDP Breakout players, keep tabs on possible waiver-wire additions and some IDP Sleeper plays during the year. It should be fun. Let’s take a look at some of my favorite Breakout IDP Performances and Waiver-Wire Moves headed into Week 10 of the NFL Season.

IDP Waiver Wire and Breakout Performers for NFL Week 10

Elandon Roberts, LB Pittsburgh Steelers

Elandon Roberts has struggled to find consistent snap share this season for the Pittsburgh Steelers. But Roberts is going to be thrown into the mix full-time after what looks to be a season-ending knee injury to fellow linebacker Cole Holcomb.

This means Kwon Alexander and Roberts should be the middle LBs going forward for the Steelers. Roberts had nine tackles last week against the Tennessee Titans. Roberts has 48 tackles and 1.5 sacks so far this season in his limited role. Those numbers should be in for an uptick.

Leo Chenal, LB Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs linebacker group has been tough to nail down the last few weeks with injuries. Star Nick Bolton is sidelined with an injury, giving way to Drue Tranquill, our top waiver-wire pickup from a couple of weeks ago. Willie Gay and Leo Chenal have been splitting the snaps next to Tranquill recently, but Chenal has been the more productive player.

Chenal played 54% of snaps last week against the Dolphins, but he has been produced during his limited opportunities with seven tackles and a sack last week. He is a little boom or bust, but if you need some bye week help he is worth a shot.

Budda Baker, S Arizona Cardinals

While Arizona Cardinals Safety Budda Baker is most likely on a majority of Dynasty IDP rosters, it is interesting to check your waiver wire in redraft leagues or leagues that don’t have an IR to see if he is available. There is a chance your league mates have forgotten about Baker, and he is available. In his return from the IR for his first game action this season, Baker was productive in his season debut with 10 tackles.

Baker is the leader of the Cardinals’ defense and should be an every-week play the rest of the season. Make sure not to miss out on him if someone else foolishly dropped him.

Josh Metellus, S Minnesota Vikings

When talking about IDP production, snap share is what matters. Players can’t make plays if they aren’t on the field. Well, Josh Metellus for the Minnesota Vikings has played at an 85% snap share or higher since Week 3. He is listed as a safety but in reality, has been playing as the Vikings’ number two LB next to Jordan Hicks.

Rookie LB Ivan Pace has fallen off after a good start and second-year LB Brian Asamoah has basically been a special teams player this season. That has left Metellus with a cast majority of the playing time, which has turned into 58 tackles, three passes defended, one sack, one interception, and one forced fumble.

David Onyemata, DT Atlanta Falcons

With star Defensive Tackle Grady Jarrett now out for the rest of the season with an injury, David Onyemata has a chance to step into Jarrett’s shoes on the defensive line and produce. He got a chance to show what he could do against the Minnesota Vikings last week, and Onyemata turned in a top-10 IDP performance in the league.

Onyemata finished the day with 10 tackles, one sack, and a forced fumble. While this won’t be a typical game for him, it showed what his upside can be. Onyemata is worth a stash in leagues that start defensive tackles.
