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 IDP sleepers at the linebacker position for Week 15.
LB Nick Roach, Oakland Raiders – Roach has been putting up ridiculous numbers as of late. He has 30 tackles, 3.5 sacks, and has forced three fumbles over his last three games alone. Roach will be asked to make a lot of tackles against a Kansas City Chiefs team that loves to pound the rock with RB Jamaal Charles and the linebacker should easily be able to rack up another 8-plus hits this week.
LB Thomas Davis, Carolina Panthers – Davis, a converted safety, has been all over the field in recent weeks. He recorded 17 hits against the New England Patriots in Week 11 and sacked Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill in Week 12. Carolina faces a New York Jets team that is having serious problems on the offensive side of the ball and Davis should be able to fill the box score again in Week 15.
LB Audie Cole, Minnesota Vikings – Cole has played outstanding since moving into the middle linebacker position. The second-year player has 35 total tackles over the last three games, to go along with one sack and six tackles behind the line of scrimmage. Cole appears to be sticking in the middle with Erin Henderson still in the doghouse following a drunken-driving arrest, so fans can expect Cole to have another big game against the Philadelphia Eagles this week.
