While many fantasy football IDP owners have been gushing over the production of Buffalo Bills LB Kiko Alsono, some other IDP rookies have been somewhat swept under the rug this season. One of these underrated IDP rookies has been LB Paul Worrilow of the Atlanta Falcons.
The former Delaware standout has come out of nowhere this month and the linebacker has surprisingly posted LB1 numbers over that time. Worrilow registered back-to-back 19-tackle performances against the Carolina Panthers and Seattle Seahawks. As if those games weren’t enough, the backer racked up another 16 hits against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last Sunday and nine total tackles against the New Orleans Saints this past Thursday night.
The linebacker has shined over the last couple weeks and has been all over the field. He is displaying great sideline-to-sideline speed and has proven that he can be a great open field tackler. Atlanta desperately needs someone on their defense to make plays, and for now, Worrilow seems to be the only player capable of making more than an arm tackle.
Worrilow is on pace to easily finish his first season with over 100 total tackles and the rookie is quickly maturing into an IDP superstar. He may still be on the wire in your league, so double-check just in case, because he won’t be there for much longer.
