Best IDP Players To Start in Week 17

Terrel Bernard, LB, Buffalo Bills

Terrel Bernard may have been a bit of a disappointment to fantasy managers for a few weeks now, but don’t bench the young LB.

Bernard’s locked into a full-time role. And despite three of his last five games being below seven tackles, he’s already at 124 combined tackles in 2023. The New England Patriots are a mediocre matchup, keep Bernard locked into championship lineups.

Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, LB, Cleveland Browns

Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah continues to tantalize IDP managers, and this week may be the true breakout.

He still doesn’t rack up tackles, posting two games over seven combined tackles in 2023. JOK does make a ton of plays though, regularly racking up tackles for loss. He has two sacks in his last five games and interceptions in the last two. Absolute baller.
