Denzel Perryman (LB9) moves into the top 12 linebacker conversation after being the only clear linebacker in every down in Houston last week. Perryman has a history of strong IDP production as a full-time player, and that continued in Week 1. He posted an elite 23% tackling efficiency on 14 tackles and was a top-five linebacker in first-contact snaps ( 10) in the Week. 1.

He Washington Commanders‘The linebacker’s deployment stood out after Week 1. Cody Barton (LB23) emerged as a starter in every down, while Jamin Davis (LB54) played less than 65% of the defensive snaps. If Barton is available on waivers and you’re still bringing in Davis, now is the time to swap them into your starting lineups.

He Pittsburgh Steelers He deployed a less than ideal rotation with his linebackers. Cole Holcomb (LB43) played less than 80% of the defensive snaps, and kwon alexander (LB52) led the team in tackles in Week 1, but played even less than Holcomb (69% of defensive snaps). There are other full-time linebackers to trust over them heading into Week 2.


Jaelan Phillips (ED12) does not get through the easiest matchup this week against New England Patriots, but he put up solid pass rush metrics and stuffed the stat sheet while playing 90% of the team’s defensive snaps in Week 1. Phillips led all defensive linemen in Week 1 in first-contact snaps (nine) , bringing the total to 11. tackles and half a sack. He will be a guaranteed starter, regardless of the matchup, with that usage.

Harold Landry (ED18) didn’t post as strong pass rush metrics as Phillips in Week 1, but he played almost as much (87.5%), which is a great sign for a player coming off a season-ending injury in 2022. Landry disappointed in the box score in Week 1, but should be ready for a bounce-back game in Week 2 against the Chargers right tackle. Trey Pipkins, who allowed four pressures, including a sack, in Week 1.


Philadelphia Eagles‘first round rookie Jalen Carter (DT9) was not only the highest-rated rookie defender in Week 1 (92.1), but he also had the sixth-highest pass rush score (90.5) among defensive linemen. Carter played 50% of the team’s defensive snaps and tied for the league lead in total pressures in Week 1. He should continue to be a rare pass-rushing threat from the interior and with more playing time could rise even further in the classification.

Chris Jones (DT10) ended his resistance with the Kansas City Chiefs agreeing to a contractual solution. Jones has one of the league’s biggest upsides at the position, but it’s unclear if his snaps will be limited in his first game after sitting out the team’s training camp.


Kyle Dugger (S3) had a relatively quiet Week 1, but saw his total snap percentage reach 100% for the second time in his NFL career. With Devin McCourty In retirement, Dugger has assumed an every-down role while still playing more than 50% of his snaps closer to the line of scrimmage. The difference this year is that instead of being off the field, Dugger is filling in at deep safety, giving him more opportunities for production, especially against a Miami passing offense that led the league in average shooting depth (12.9) in Week 1.

Grant Delpit (T4) did not disappoint in Week 1 after being listed as one of “My guys” heading into the year due to his expected usage and tackling opportunities in Jim Schwartz’s defense. Delpit totaled eight tackles in Week 1 and should get ideal IDP usage going forward after playing just 36% of his snaps deep and 36% in the box.


Kenny Moore (CB8) performed poorly in Week 1, making just three tackles, but his usage didn’t change much from previous years when he was a must-have IDP cornerback. Moore played almost every defensive snap, primarily in the slot, and faces a Houston Texans‘ offense in Week 2 that totaled 49 dropbacks last week, which was the second most in the league. Houston also tied for the fourth-most targets at the position (13) in Week 1, so Moore should get more opportunities for production.

Avon Maddox (CB12) played a role in almost every down in Week 1, with 94% of his snaps coming in the slot. Maddox was targeted 12 times last week, tied for the most in the league. He posted six tackles, including one for loss, and two pass deflections. He should continue to be very objective and involved in production opportunities against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 2 on Thursday Night Football.
