Best IDP Players To Start in Week 8

Drue Tranquill, LB, Kansas City Chiefs

Yes, you should universally start a player who was likely a waiver add, either after Nick Bolton’s ankle injury or this week.

MORE: PFN Consensus Rankings

All he did without Bolton was post at least eight tackles per game, play full-time, and add a half-sack and a forced fumble. With Bolton there, he’s posted sacks in the last two games. Tranquill is a weekly must-start.

Nick Bosa, DE, San Francisco 49ers

Nick Bosa was recommended last week but underwhelmed. This is me saying stay with him. Despite no sacks, Bosa posted five combined tackles in the game. Now the 49ers get Cincinnati, possibly without Brock Purdy, after letting Kirk Cousins go off on them. Bosa is primed for a big week, as he’s yet to post more than a single sack in a game in 2023.
