Fantasy Football Week 13 IDP Rankings

People calling Perry Riley a "poor man's NaVorro Bowman" would suggest that poor man doesn't exactly need welfare checks.

Welcome back, ID people. I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and more importantly, I hope your IDP teams are completely stacked. We are getting ready to hit the playoffs (cue the Jim Mora sound clip) and there are some things fantasy owners should have on their minds. The world of fantasy football is rarely a place where owners can control a lot of things about their rosters. That's not always the case though, especially when it comes to bench management. The most important things fantasy owners should have is upside at running back and/or depth at their weakest spot on their benches. For example, one of my 14-team leagues we start a D/ST, eight IDP, two backs, a flex and four WR(!!) on offense, so having a deep team is very important. The weakest spot on my team by far is at D/ST and I've been streaming all year long. I've clinched a playoff spot and while carrying two defenses is not a strategy I'd suggest, I have Tennessee and Atlanta (they have nice schedules with the exception of one bad game each). I'm stacked at WR, so my bench is a backup for Stafford (Matt Moore) and all running backs. Most of them have been useless all year too (i.e. Deji Karim). At this point of the year there is really no need at all to have any backup IDP guys. Of course there are exceptions, like backing up George Wilson, but for the most part you don't need to occupy extra spots for IDP insurance. Things are pretty much figured out at this point.

OK. Now that I've bored you enough with my team, I'd just also want to remind you to ask me any question you want about your IDP circumstance on Twitter @MikeSGallagher. I'm also tweeting any time I have a chance to update you throughout the week and provide a ton of instant analysis on Sunday.
