Best IDP Players To Start in Week 12

Bobby Okereke, LB, New York Giants

After some ups and downs to start the year, Bobby Okereke is a must-start player this week. Because the Patriots are looking at QB options, the run game should be a focus and lead to a lot of tackles.

Okereke has at least seven tackles in 10 straight games now and double digits in six of his last eight. Lock him into your lineup with confidence.

Jaelan Phillips, DE, Miami Dolphins

The Jaelan Phillips breakout is something I’ve been shouting about all offseason. After an injury-plagued start to 2023, here we are.

Over his last four games, Phillips has totaled five or more tackles in each game. He also has at least one sack in each game during the four-game stretch, including two in Week 11 to go along with an interception. Fire him up against the New York Jets for the Black Friday showdown.
