IDP Fantasy Football Report: Waiver Wire Pickups and Early Week 11 Fantasy Rankings

In the weekly IDP report, we'll look at waiver wire targets as well as some early fantasy football rankings as we prepare for the playoffs.

Week 10 of football is officially in the books, and it’s time to look ahead to our Week 11 fantasy football lineups. The IDP report will provide an early look at several waiver wire priorities of varying league sizes, along with preliminary IDP rankings.

Since all leagues are different sizes and have IDP requirements, the weekly rankings might be more beneficial than the waiver list. If you have any specific questions, hop into our Discord and ask a question. We hope the waivers go in your favor.

Top Week 11 IDP Waiver Wire Pickups

BJ Ojulari, DE, Arizona Cardinals

It’s the time of year for rookies to start ascending and show at least a glimpse of what they can be. BJ Ojulari started the year battling injuries from camp, and for the first time in Week 10, played 50% of snaps. He posted eight tackles and two sacks. Get him now and hope this is the start of a big breakout.

Harold Landry, DE, Tennessee Titans

Harold Landry is still rounding into form after missing the 2022 season due to injury. Week 10 saw the Titan post one of his best games of 2023. He tallied nine total tackles and a sack. That means he’s posted 20 total tackles and four sacks in his last four games. Hopefully, he can keep it up.

Elandon Roberts, LB, Pittsburgh Steelers

The Steelers have lost their top two linebackers in consecutive weeks now. Over those same two weeks, Elandon Roberts has posted 17 total tackles. He also played nearly every snap in Week 10.

The issue with Roberts has always been the full-time role. He always produces with enough playing time, so he should be an elite LB add for the rest of the year.

Ivan Pace, LB, Minnesota Vikings

With Jordan Hicks (IR) out with a shin injury and compartment syndrome, Ivan Pace leaped into the LB1 role with the Vikings and crushed it. While he only put up five tackles, he started the year with consecutive eight-tackle performances with similar playing time. With the run-heavy Denver Broncos and Chicago Bears next, he’s a multi-week LB streamer where needed.

Jordan Whitehead, S, New York Jets

Jordan Whitehead has been a little up and down, but that’s the case for most replacement-level DBs in IDP fantasy football. Playing behind two tackle machines at LB hurts, but he’s hit eight or more tackles in four games and two of three off of the bye week. He and the Jets play the Buffalo Bills this week, who should have a good game following the firing of their offensive coordinator.

DeAndre Houston-Carson, S, Houston Texans

DeAndre Houston-Carson left the Ravens for Houston and is now seeing playing time with Jimmie Ward injured. If he continues to miss time, Houston-Carson feels like a must-play option going forward. He’s recorded seven tackles (and 100% of the snaps) in his one start. The Cardinals’ matchup feels like another shootout and a good game for him.

Top IDP Players To Start in Week 11

Ivan Pace, LB, Minnesota Vikings

Another week with one of the top adds at LB going right into the must-play category. Ivan Pace steps into a full-time role where the linebacker can post a lot of tackles. Jordan Hicks posted five double-digit tackle games and was on pace for a sixth before his injury, so Pace is a must-add and must-play for the next few weeks. Fire him up!

Devin Lloyd, LB, Jacksonville Jaguars

A former first-round NFL Draft pick, the second-year LB Devin Lloyd is flying under the radar because his teammate is so good. Lloyd deserves way more respect in the IDP community — he’s played seven games this season and has nine or more tackles in five of them, including four straight. Keep him locked in your starting lineups.
