Dansby recorded a team-high six tackles in Sunday's loss to the Steelers. With 79 tackles, two picks and a forced fumble in 10 games to date, Dansby has been an asset in IDP formats, though the Browns' Week 11 bye will require those who have been relying on him to find a substitute at the linebacker position for this week.
Timmons notched 10 tackles (seven solo) and a sack in Sunday's win over the Browns. Timmons was very impressive on Sunday on a day where the Steelers' defense held the Browns to just nine points. Now in his ninth season, Timmons sits on 73 tackles, 2.5 sacks and an interception. The Steelers' defense has given up 16 points or less in four of the last five games, and Timmons is a big reason for the recent success. He'll hold solid IDP value at the linebacker position moving forward.
Dansby had five solo tackles, two assisted tackles, a stuff, and a forced fumble in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals. Dansby continues to be a bright spot on a Browns team that so desperately needs play makers. As he still leads the Browns in tackles, he should be on the radar for IDP players with his routine high tackle totals.
Dansby collected his first two interceptions of the 2015 season in Sunday's loss to Denver, one of which he returned for a touchdown. He also had seven tackles (five solo) in the outing. An ankle injury limited Dansby in practice all week, but that didn't stop him from producing a spectacular output in a tough loss. The 33-year-old will always be on the IDP radar due to a high tackle total, but his first pick-six since December of 2013 was surely a treat for owners. Dansby had a career-best four interceptions that year, and is already halfway to that total six games into 2015, thanks to the solid effort Sunday.
Browns linebacker Karlos Dansby (ankle) is active Sunday against the Broncos. Dansby was limited in practice all week, but the leading tackler in Cleveland will still suit up. Without any indication of limitations, Individual Defensive Player owners should be able to safely deploy Dansby.
