We are almost at the fantasy football super bowl but there are still some great fantasy football IDP week 15 waiver pickups on the waiver wire. If your still in need of more IDP waiver pickups then check out the previous IDP articles to find defensive players that are still available in many leagues. If you are in need of a linebacker (LB) and/or a defensive end (DE), here are two waiver pickups that will have a major impact on your team and could possibly help you win your fantasy football week 15 IDP playoff game.
David Hawthorne, LB, Seattle Seahawks – Hawthorne was mentioned in the IDP sleeper article before the season started and is having a relatively good year so far with 55 solo tackles, 33 assists and three picks. Although I thought he would be further along statistically at this point, the middle linebacker has great matchups the next two weeks with Chicago and San Francisco while being owned in less than 15 percent of ESPN leagues. Feel good about adding him to your team if your need a boost in the final weeks of your IDP season. He’s only in his forth season out of Texas Christian University and has a lot of promise to be a valuable IDP player for years to come.
Jason Worilds DE, Pittsburgh Steelers – This is a guy to keep an eye on for the future and also a great pickup in deep leagues for Week 15, especially for James Harrison owners. The veteran Harrison is facing a one game suspension, which is currently in the appeal process, but will likely be upheld given his history of helmet-to-helmet hits on quarterbacks. Worilds has played well in the past three games recording three sacks and 17 total tackles replacing the injured LaMarr Woodley who is expected back this week. Worilds is a young player at age 23 who is only going to get better and could very well have an impact game in the upcoming matchup against the 49ers who have allowed the sixth-most sacks in the league with 39, 18 of which came in the past three contests. Harrison will return in Week 16 and Worilds will likely spell Woodley which means limited fantasy value.
