5 Breakout Defensive Linemen To Target For IDP Leagues In 2022
It's easy to draft Myles Garret and Aaron Donald, but the key and fun part of an IDP draft are the middle-to-late rounds when you're identifying those potential lottery tickets.
I've identified a few defensive linemen and edge rushers who are seeing increased roles in their defense, which could lead to more snap volume and pass-rush opportunities, resulting in fantasy points. These guys are either coming off an injury or are stepping in thanks to vacated snaps.
Odafe Oweh, EDGE, Baltimore Ravens
I’m not too worried about the Justin Houston signing and its impact on Oweh’s usage. Houston is a shell of his former self and should be a rotation guy who gets 15-20 snaps a game. Oweh is the future of the franchise as the next edge rusher and is coming off a season where he received 65% of the snaps as a rookie.
Oweh made an immediate impact, not only from the pass rush but at the line of scrimmage against the run. He had three forced fumbles and five tackles for loss. This was one of the more memorable plays of his rookie season against the Chiefs.
