Best IDP Players To Start in Week 6

Nick Bolton, LB, Kansas City Chiefs

Nick Bolton is back and at the top of the rankings (mine, at least). Currently the LB17 (what??) on Fantasy Pros consensus ranks, he’s an elite play.

MORE: Fantasy News Tracker

Bolton should go right back to his full-time role, and that’s led to an average of eight tackles over the first five weeks. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see a big 12 or 13-tackle week this week vs. Denver.

Aidan Hutchinson, DE, Detroit Lions

Aidan Hutchinson leads all players with 35 total pressures. He’s actually a little underperforming in sacks with just 4.5, but that’ll correct if he keeps up the pressure.

A higher tackle floor might be there this week vs. Tampa Bay, too, as they like to run the ball and have no one to match up with Hutchinson. A Week 6 lineup lock!
