Each week of the fantasy football season, there are plenty of sleeper articles out there for offensive players. However, there are never enough IDP sleepers. So to help set your final lineup in IDP leagues, here are some fantasy sleepers on the defensive line for Week 14.
DL Ezekiel Ansah, Detroit Lions – After starting the year hot, Ansah went five weeks with just a half sack. The defensive end has racked up four sacks over the last two games alone, though, and has started to put up numbers like a weekly IDP option. Ziggy continues to produce on the team’s very expensive defensive line and the rookie is currently leading the team in sacks.
DL Marcel Dareus, Buffalo Bills– The former first round pick is finally showing some potential for fantasy fans and has been a decent low-end defensive lineman. Dareus has racked up two sacks over the last three gems alone, including two blocked passes and a forced fumble. The 300-pounder should be in QB Mike Glennon‘s face all afternoon.
DL Adrian Clayborn, Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Clayborn has recorded 16 tackles over his last three games to go along with one sack and five tackles for loss. He is getting more single-coverage on the outside and has benefited from the lack of attention. Tampa plays a Buffalo Bills team that has had problems lately containing the pass rush, which makes Clayborn a sneaky play with week.
