There were some really good performances this week by players hardly owned in IDP leagues. Not every player that had a good week is worth picking up though because one game doesn’t equal long-term success. Here are a few players out of the bunch that are worth picking up.

Paul Worrilow, Atl SLB

The undrafted rookie has tied the Falcons’ single-game tackle record with a 19 total tackles in each of the past two weeks. The incredible part about Worrilow’s recent performances is the fact the last two games were his first two career starts. The 23-year-old was signed after the draft out of Delaware and made the Falcons’ 53-man roster out of training camp.

Worrilow will be Atlanta’s starting strongside linebacker the rest of the season as he has proven to be a sure tackler. The Falcons lost linebacker Sean Weatherspoon and Stephan Nicolaus to injury earlier this season and both are making comebacks now. Worrilow’s spot is likely safe though because the team is not going to make the playoffs and younger players will get the opportunity to show their talent.

Fantasy owners will want to get Worrilow this week if he’s still available. Some of you have already made the move and you will be happy you did.

James Ihedigbo, Bal FS

For owners in deeper leagues, you might want to scoop up the Ravens’ free safety. Ihedigbo is having a productive year so far with 55 total tackles (35 solo), two interceptions, two fumbles recovered and one forced in nine games. He also been reliable in coverage with seven passes defended.

The seven-year veteran had both of his interceptions and nine combined tackles this past Sunday in an overtime win over the Bengals. Ihedigbo took over free safety duties this season with Ed Reed departing for the Texans in free agency only to be released on Tuesday.

John Abraham, Ari DE

Don’t look know, but the 35-year-old has notched six sacks over the past three games. Abraham is a shell of what once was an elite pass rusher in his prime in Atlanta, but fantasy owners might want to take a flier on him the rest of the season.

Abraham could certainly feast on some struggling offensive lines in the coming weeks as the Cardinals’ remaining schedule is filled with favorable matchups. The Jaguars (Week 11) have allowed 31 sacks to this point, the Eagles (Week 13) have conceded 28, the Rams (Week14) have given up 24, the Titans (Week15) have surrendered 23 and the Seahawks (Week16) have yielded 28.

IDP owners in need of defensive lineman depth should feel comfortable starting the league’s active leader in sacks (127) going forward.
