It's Week 4 of the 2012 NFL season, and as we head into the bye weeks most IDP owners have a pretty good feel for this year's teams, whether it's a 3-0 juggernaut that has you puffing out your chest or an 0-3 disaster of a squad that has you pulling out your hair.
As usual last week's recommendations contained a little of both of those extremes. If you heeded my advice and sat safety Antoine Bethea of the Indianapolis Colts then you may have thought I'm a genius, but I doubt that IDP owners who followed my recommendation to start defensive end Robert Quinn of the St. Louis Rams share that assessment.
It's with that knowledge that you can't win them all that I kick off another week of IDP Studs and Duds, where I'll point out some Individual Defensive Players who could be set to exceed expectations this week (Studs) and some that for whatever reason are riskier plays than usual (Duds).
That isn't necessarily to say that every "Stud" is a must-start (it depends on your other options) or that every "Dud" should be glued to your bench (just that the odds of a letdown week are greater than usual).
Also, as I said earlier the byes begin this week, so players from the Indianapolis Colts and Pittsburgh Steelers need to be on fantasy benches, as I'm pretty confident that they're not going to score many points in Week 4.
Finally, before we get on with the show, if you have a specific IDP Start/Sit question you'd like my take on you can e-mail me at email@example.com or post the question in the "Kilroyz Krystal Ball" thread in the Fantasy Sharks IDP Forum. I can't promise I'll get to every question, but I'll do the best I can.
Michael Bennett -- DE, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (vs. WAS): With Adrian Clayborn joining Da'Quan Bowers on the shelf Michael Bennett is the last man standing at defensive end for the Buccaneers, and the fourth-year pro has an excellent shot at making it two big games in a row given the problems that the Washington Redskins are having in pass protection right now.
Derrick Morgan -- DE, Tennessee Titans (at HOU): After a pair of solid games to start the season Morgan cooled off last week, but the 23-year-old should rebound this week against the Houston Texans, who are allowing the most fantasy points per game to opposing defensive linemen so far this year.
Cameron Wake -- DE, Miami Dolphins (at ARI): Wake's transition to 4-3 defensive end hasn't been nearly as smooth as his fantasy owners would have liked, but the fourth-year pro has...
